A classic horror tale that has spanned centuries with a modern twist…
Every town has secrets. But is Harbingers Falls ready to be home to the most terrible of all secrets? A madman, who seeks to eradicate humanity and replace it with his own creations, nestled among them? Recently relocated to the small, sleepy town in upstate New York, Dr. Franklin N. Stein has a secret. A terrifying secret…
Gabriel James was not brought to life with a bolt of lightning. He was not sewn together from the corpses of the fallen. He was, however, created in a sophisticated lab as the prototype of the future of humankind. Deemed the perfect specimen by the brilliant Dr. Stein, Gabriel possesses unparalleled intelligence, looks and agility. A shining beacon to be introduced to the dull, dismal masses as a high-school student. But more important than his looks, intelligence and physical prowess is the adjustment his maker made to his brain that stripped him of the ability to feel. Dr. Stein sees emotion as the ultimate flaw of humanity. A weakness responsible for every ill in society worldwide. Gabriel is not flawed. Gabriel is not weak. Gabriel is the future.
Seventeen year old Melissa Martin has never seen a boy as handsome as Gabriel. The day he arrives at her school, her life changes. As she gets to know him, she realizes he’s unlike any boy she’s ever met. In fact, he’s unlike anyone she’s ever met. She likes everything about him. He seems … perfect. But is he?
Gabriel never felt a single emotion in his short existence. Happiness, fear, anger and sadness—words he was familiarized with but never truly experienced. All of that changes the day he meets Melissa. She awakens feelings he isn’t supposed to have. Feelings that make him contemplate risking everything—his very life—to be with her. Discovery of his newfound feelings would result in his demise, his maker will terminate him. Can Melissa accept the dark secret of his creation?
Will Gabriel risk it all just to be with Melissa? Will Dr. Franklin N. Stein discover what Gabriel is hiding and unleash another of his secrets—his first creation, a creature more deadly and horrific than any to ever walk the earth?
