About this product
- DescriptionDo you love shows like J.J. Abrams' Fringe and read books like Cassandra Clare's City of Bones? Doubt mashes fringe science, corporate espionage and pararmal encounters to catapult you into an out-of-this-world experience. At 21 years old, Harry and Cristal are fresh out of university with their PhD's. Labeled all their lives as being 'weird' and 'geeky', they find true friendships with other outcasts by playing online virtual reality games. Harry Doubt, a genius programmer and creator of the popular online game 'Truth Seekers', has a personal mission of his own; to find his mother who went mysteriously missing while volunteering on a peacekeeping mission in Palestine. His gaming friends and followers inadvertently join in helping him find her; believing that they are on missions to find out what has happened to their own missing loved ones. During Harry's missions, Cristal and the team of 'Truth Seekers' stumble upon things that make them doubt the reality of their own lives. As they get closer to the truth, they realize that there are spiritual forces among them both good and evil, but in learning this, they activate a chain of events that start the beginning of the 'end of the world' as they kw it. Doubt is Book 1 of the Among Us Trilogy. Among Us is a book series which delves into the world of the supernatural and how it intersects with the everyday lives of seemingly ordinary young people as catastrophic events on earth lead to the end of times. Among Us weaves the theme of a young man and woman, who while t fully understanding their 'abilities', are drawn together in their desire to find out the truth about the world they live in which is similar to themes used in J.J. Abrams' TV shows Fringe and Lost. What readers had to say...As a big fan of the show Fringe, this book appealed to me tremendously. The writing was well done, and the way the supernatural forces were introduced was great. A good, clean read for any age.It was an excellent story that I'm sure both adult and teen urban fantasy fans will enjoy. You don't have to be a gamer or kw one to identify with the characters. They're very well developed and definitely feel like people. I would definitely recommend it to a friend and I'm really looking forward to the second book....the vel is written in such a languid style, it moves on effortlessly and absorbs the reader into the story completely. Although the story itself revolves around the online gaming industry, one does t have to have an in depth kwledge as it is ably explained and discussed within the plot line. OMGosh! I just finished reading Doubt INCREDIBLE! I couldn't put it down. --- >>> Depth and Substance mashed up with Fringe Science. Will entertain young and old alike. This book is intended for mature young adults and new adults. Ages 16 to 45 years and up - >Inspired by real Truth Seekers Aaron Swartz and Harry FearThe main character Harry Doubt was inspired by Aaron Swartz, internet prodigy and activist, co-founder of the Creative Commons and Reddit, and Harry Fear, journalist, documentary filmmaker and activist whose coverage of the conflict in the Middle East was seen on UStream by millions of viewers.

- Author BiographyNote from author: When I began writing the Among Us Trilogy, I had been entertaining myself by watching back-to-back episodes of Fringe. I loved how the story would start out like any normal CIA type of crime mystery TV show and then go completely sideways. Serious characters would find themselves in crazy and impossible to believe situations and yet would carry on as if it were really happening, taking us, the viewers, into this altered reality. What was most fascinating is that the story was always told in multiple points of view by different characters. Protagonists were also antagonists in the story arc or even in the same episode. And it all made sense even when it didn't. Writing Doubt began as an interactive experiment where I recruited a handful of fans to complete mini Truth Seeker missions via the Among Us Trilogy website. With my developmental editor, we shaped the characters in the novel based on the results of the completed missions. It was a fun and collaborative experience. Anne-Rae Vasquez's latest novel is Doubt, Book 1 of the Among Us Trilogy. Among Us is a book series about a group of online gamers who band together to investigate who or what is behind the catastrophic events happening around the world. RESIST, book 2 will be released in November 2014. Her previous novel Almost a Turkish Soap Opera was a finalist in the New Generation Indie Book Awards 2013. The book was adapted into a screenplay and later produced into an award winning feature film and web series and was her directorial debut. Her other works include: Gathering Dust - a collection of poems, Salha's Secrets to Middle Eastern Cooking Cookbook published by AR Publishing Inc. and Teach Yourself Great Web Design in a Week, published by Sams.net (a division of Macmillan Publishing).
