“The Blue Effect was part Fight Club, part X-Men and sucked me in from the very first chapter to the very last word.” – Robert Dugoni, NY Times Best Selling Author – My Sister’s Grave
In the real world, superheroes are a thing of fiction, a mythical representation of the best of humanity.
At least, that’s what party girl Blue Brennan thought.
When she meets the mysterious Kasey, her world stops… literally. He claims she has the ability to control time and reveals his own hidden talents.
He also introduces her to a brand new world lurking just beneath the surface of society, filled with misfits like her. They’re blessed or cursed with powerful abilities, struggling to hide their differences from humanity.
Soon, they come face to face with a nightmarish sociopath possessing abilities of his own. They’re powers beyond anything they’ve ever seen before, and may be enough to destroy them all.
Blue must race against the clock to harness her own powers and save her friends. As she struggles to come to terms with her past and save the day, two questions haunt her: Can she be more than just a rebel? Can she be a hero too?
Author Rose Shababy
Rose Shababy and her family reside in eastern Washington State. Rose grew up in the Northwest but swears she’s going to move to warmer climates someday. She’s claimed this for over 20 years, however, and has yet to move more than 75 miles away from her mother.
Rose has a deep love of all things Star Trek and yearns to travel the heavens, as well as an intense desire to be bitten by a radioactive spider. Unfortunately she sucks at science and math so she hasn’t been able bring her dreams to life, instead living vicariously through books, comics, television and film. She hopes to someday make a million dollars so she can afford to buy her way to the international space station, but she’d settle for being able to fly around the world and leap tall buildings in a single bound.
Rose also loves to cook and worked for years in a gourmet Italian grocery and deli where she learned to hone her skills. She prepares culinary masterpieces for her family, but fervently wishes the dishes would wash themselves. Especially now that her dishwashers/children are nearly grown and only one still lives at home.
Rose likes to use her free time wisely. For instance, she likes to daydream, will often read for hours until she falls asleep on the couch with an electric blanket and a warm tabby cat curled up on her hip, as well as spending cozy weekend days watching Syfy movies like Sharknado and Mega Piranha with her husband.
If Rose were a cartoon animal, she’d prefer to be a wise old owl or a sleek and sexy jaguar, but in reality she’d probably be a myopic mole with coke-bottle glasses.
