Do you enjoy thrillers by Dean Koontz or the psychological horror of Stephen King? Did you like the Harry Potter series but want something older and closer to the real world? Check out The Rothston Series which has been compared to all three.
The Rothston Series will include four novels – thrillers exploring the lure of power in a contemporary world in which “adepts” can change the decisions of those around them. Think about the feel of the old Twilight Zone episodes when they were originally aired – real world with implausible, eerie events. Call it science fiction. Call it contemporary fantasy. Call it supernatural fiction. Call it a new take on all three.
The Kirkus Review says ”Smiles has proven that she’s skilled at crafting a nuanced page turner.”
Foreseen – Book One of The Rothston Series
What if you could change the thoughts of others?
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.
“Foreseen” is an adventurous twist of genre, much recommended. ~Midwest Book Review
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
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.
