“[A]n adventurous twist of genre, much recommended.” ~Midwest Book Review
“Smiles has proven that she’s skilled at crafting a nuanced page turner.” ~The Kirkus Review
Foreseen – Book One of The Rothston Series
“Foreseen mixes coming of age with quantum foam, romance with political conspiracy, in this able science fiction story,” say Micheal Williams, bestselling author of Weasel’s Luck, Trajan’s Arch, and Vine: an Urban Legend.
A secret organization, four college students, and the ability to alter quantum states with their minds. What could possibly go wrong?
The Rothston Institute can secretly manipulate the decisions of anyone in the world – from ordinary friends to government leaders – using the abilities of its operatives known as adepts. Having discovered that she possesses these special skills, college student Kinzie Nicolosi is training to assist Rothston in protecting humankind from destruction. A student missing an exam? A construction worker fired for an industrial accident? A Congressman ruined in scandal? Necessary consequences of honing her skills for the greater good. But Kinzie brings more than her remarkable talent to Rothston. She bears an unexpected power that rivals Rothston’s own … and the clash may be something none of them can control.
The Kirkus Review calls Foreseen “A worthy sci-fi thriller à la Dean Koontz,” comparing it to Stephen King’s Dreamcatcher.
Choices – Book Two of The Rothston Series
“Smiles interlaces the action and suspense with some interesting science tidbits and with a carefully considered version of human history in which adepts have always walked among us … A tense and well-plotted continuation of the Rothston Series.” ~The Kirkus Review
The Rothston Institute has fallen to those who are after the key to controlling humanity – a secret held deep within Kinzie Nicolosi’s own body. Scared and on the run, Kinzie’s life becomes entangled with a collection of loners, adding the wrath of their own foes to the dangers she faces. Outmanned and outgunned on all sides, none of them can protect Kinzie or the world from the true evil behind the threats – something far more terrifying than anything they have encountered.
And it is waiting…
The saga of Kinzie Nicolosi continues in Choices, the second book in the Rothston series. Author Terri-Lynne Smiles once again convincingly explains world events through the interference of adepts who are able to control the decisions and actions of others.
