BSFA-Nominated author Blake Northcott ('Arena Mode') takes readers on a scintillating, cinematic ride in her debut trilogy.
Failed mixed-martial artist Donovan Cole wakes from a brutal mugging to discover his cuts healed, bones mended – and his assailants still in the alley.
He’d been unconscious for only seconds.
Infused with near-supernatural size and strength he retaliates against his attackers, though his transformation is only temporary. Now searching for answers, Cole finds others like him - a small group able to bend reality for short periods of time. They have a solution to the unreliable nature of their powers: an experimental drug that enables the user to transform at will. And like most drugs, it comes with a terrible cost.
Action-packed, enthralling and endlessly addictive, Vs. Reality will have you hooked until the last page.
