Ally Blue has a new aquatic chiller headed our way next year, and it sounds like an absolute winner. In fact even the cover is absolutely bad ass. And we’re sharing it with you, right now. Check out the official cover reveal below, and plan on making a purchase on April 20, 2015, when Down goes live to the masses!
A tense and claustrophobic read, the characters are trapped in the deepest, most mysterious trenches of the oceans where nightmare versions of mermaids pursue the deep sea miners and explorers, murdering some and assimilating the others. Ally Blue’s far-future dystopian world isn’t a pretty place, but the threat of slow, inexorable takeover by something lurking and monstrous makes it even darker.
For anyone who wondered what a collaboration between James Camerson and H.P. Lovecraft might look like.
Synopsis: Seven thousand meters below the ocean’s surface, the crew of the BathyTech 3 mineral mining facility has
found something remarkable: a rock-like sphere of unknown material and origin.
For Mo Rees, the discovery calls to his inner explorer and adds color to his dull miner’s life. Even better than the promise of new knowledge is the unexpected connection he forges with Dr. Armin Savage-Hall, leader of the team brought down to study the thing.
For Armin, the object is the find of a lifetime. It could prove his controversial theories and secure his scientific reputation. And Mo is a fascinating bonus.
Then crew members start behaving strangely. Worse, they start to change: their eyes glow purple, their teeth sharpen. Then the violence begins, the brutal deaths. As BathyTech descends deeper into chaos, the surviving crew works desperately to find the cause of the horrors around them. What they uncover could annihilate the human race. And they can’t stop it.
About the Author
Ally Blue is acknowledged by the world at large (or at least by her heroes, who tend to suffer a lot) as the Popess of Gay Angst.
She has a great big suggestively-shaped hat and rides in a bullet-proof Plexiglas bubble in Christmas parades. Her harem of manwhores does double duty as bodyguards and inspirational entertainment. Her favorite band is Radiohead, her favorite color is lime green and her favorite way to waste a perfectly good Saturday is to watch all three extended version LOTR movies in a row.
Her ultimate dream is to one day ditch the evil day job and support the family on manlove alone. She is not a hippie or a brain surgeon, no matter what her kids’ friends say.
