Product description

Product Description

Tanita awoke in an abandoned factory to the sound of gunfire, her memory blank, nude, with a terrible hangover. And that was the high point of her day...
Set in modern day New England, this is the first book of a three volume series that follows Tanita the Kentauride's evolution as she struggles to understand who she is, what she is, and how she came to be. Who are the voices in her mind, claiming to be angels, and what do they want from her? Why is Mark, a normal teenager, so intent on hiding her, and could she really be falling for him? Running for her life, fighting xenophobia and ignorance, can she unlock the secrets of her past before it's too late?
The technology and science in this book are, for the most part, entirely plausible, with a not-so-subtle nod to geek folklore. If you understand and appreciate the humour in xkcd, you will probably find this novel entertaining.
Contains absolutely no vampires, werewolves, witches, ghosts, sea monsters or extra-terrestrial beings, but if you've ever dreamt of actually encountering a centaur, this book will surely appeal to you.
Strong language, violence, and mild sensuality, this book may not be appropriate for younger audiences. 127590 words, with illustrations.
Questions or specific comments on the book can be left via the feedback form at The Q&A page may also address some of your questions.
Book II, "The Centaur," now available on Amazon Kindle, ISBN: 978-0-9919444-1-5
