The Underlighters and Michelle Browne

We get to host another wonderful author and another wonderful book (which will be going on my to-read list). I met her with the ASMSG, a wonderful author support group. I got to talking with her over the months, liked her, and picked up a copy of "The Stolen" to see what all the fuss was. She writes like Ray Bradbury, so I've been a fan since. Michelle loves magpies (maybe she's really a magpie in disguise...stranger things happen around here), enjoying all the wonders of nerd-dom, and is one of those rare female gamers. Most of us are gamers of some degree here at THG StarDragon Publishing. Michelle fits right in.

The Underlighters

Nightmares are bleeding into her waking world. Children are going missing. To save them, she must overcome her wreck of a personal life and a closet full of skeletons. She doesn’t know if the horrors in the shadows are real...or if she is going mad.

18-year-old Janelle Cohen is an electrician in an underground city. The world above has been swal-lowed by mind-destroying Dust. Her small life changes forever when a dragon attacks her on the way home from work.

Her friends worry that she has the Fever, Dust-induced insanity. As more monsters strike down citizens, they change their minds. A terrifying trip to the surface of the world, the ancient and abandoned Up, deepens the nightmare. With no world left above, she and the other Crows cannot afford to fail…

5 stars: “…You will be rewarded with a dive into the depths of imagination that may leave you questioning, breathless and inspired.” –

5 stars: “… Engaging, ground breaking prose that is not afraid to test the reader’s boundaries. “—Sara Celi

5 stars: “…A wonderful read that is full of life, nightmares, fear, and dreams.” –Casey Peeler

Janelle’s world is about to get very, very dark. Are you ready? On August 30th, nightmares are going to become a little too real for comfort.
