Editorial Reviews: "Doty's razor-sharp prose and impeccable sense of timing make this book difficult to put down... a fast-paced, highly entertaining thriller." --Kirkus
Awards: 2009 Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY) Thriller semifinalist
It is the year 2071: The world is at peace; across the planet mankind has vanquished poverty, embraced technology, the gym, healthy cooking-- found balance.
In this world, Anne Kelley sticks out like a... well, like an under-employed, horribly insecure 260 pound woman might stick out in the year 2071. She grits her teeth a lot; she averts her eyes a lot.
Then one night Anne makes a discovery: it's the end of the world. Not the mushroom cloud end, not the machines rise to judge their makers end... the hungry, swarming apocalypse end. Yeah, that one... well, sort of.
Now five damaged strangers must piece together the mystery and find the courage to stand together against an evil so ancient it predates written history.
Now they must become the heroes the world needs before the darkness falls forever.
Sometimes purpose falls into the most broken lives, like a careless stone fallen out of the clear black sky.
"Out of the Black is an amalgam of cop thriller, science fiction and magical fantasy. The mix is highly entertaining. The plot is taut, fast moving, and original. The prose is solidly crafted. Characters are fully realized, engaging and likable... The dialog is delicious; I often found myself laughing out loud." -- J. T. Thorleifson
