Overview

"Fast-paced, keeps the attention... great, suspenseful plot that ties in well with the first book but spins everything off in a different direction, and pulls in a lot of cool mythology while at the same time getting a great "alien" vibe in."Nikki Bennett, author of Under the Skin

"Imaginative concepts, and well-written ... this trilogy should appeal to readers looking for an unusual thriller. Four stars out of four."CM Magazine

"Dutton is in his element crafting together a sci-fi adventure with a good blend of sincerity and humour that, without such a fine balance, can be the downfall of any YA fiction."Broken Pencil Magazine


Storyline

Six months ago, Kari Marriner's life was torn apart. Now turned 17, she's looking for answers in her rural Wisconsin hometown. But just as the Embodied seemed to have vanished, there's a new, more terrifying visitor from the Dark Universe.

Back in Manhattan, a charismatic English artist named Starley convinces Kari he can find her missing mother if she flies to Paris with him. He also shares an incredible secret from the dawn of mankind. But Starley is not who he seems. Before she knows it, Kari finds herself standing in front of the Mona Lisa with him, yelling out, "He's got a bomb!"

And that's when things go totally insane. The Rebel Embodied's henchman, Cilic, returns to Earth on a deadly mission. The body of Kari's treacherous friend Aranara is washed up on the banks of the Hudson. But is she really dead? In the Paris catacombs, Kari and Starley are hunted by a nightmarish mythical creature that's all too real.

A family mystery, an exiled race, freakish beasts, jealousy, love... and death. Kari has to face them all in the fast-paced fantasy thriller.

Starley's Rust is the spellbinding second novel in JB Dutton's EMBODIED trilogy. The first installment, Silent Symmetry, was published in 2013 and reached the #1 spot on Amazon's free Kindle ebook Futuristic & Sci-Fi Romance chart. The thrilling conclusion, Diamond Splinters, came out in May 2016.
