In a world where collective hives are enslaving the population and individuals have been hunted to the verge of extinction, Maggie Harper, and independent 21st Century woman, must find the strength to preserve the freedom of the future, but without the aid of her memories.
After experiencing a traumatic time loss, Maggie is plagued by a barrage of images she can't explain. When she's attacked by a creep with a spider's web tattoo, she is saved by Marcus, a man she's never met, but somehow remembers. He tells her that both he and her creepy attacker are from a future in which individuals are being murdered by collectives, and Marcus is part of the rebellion. The collectives have acquired time travel and they plan to enslave the human race throughout all of history. The flashes Maggie has been seeing are echoes of lost memories, and the information buried deep within them is instrumental in defeating the collective hives.
In order to preserve the individuality of mankind, Maggie must try to re-discover stolen memories, re-kindle friendships she has no recollection of, and wade through her feelings for the mysterious Marcus, all while dodging the tattooed assassins the collectives keep sending her way.
If Maggie can't fill the holes in her memory and find the answers to stop the collectives, the world both in her time and in all ages past and future will be doomed to enslavement in the grey, mediocre collectives. As the danger swirls around her and the collectives close in, Maggie realizes she must make a choice: stand out or fade away...
Liesel K. Hill's message to all of you bloggers!
The Persistence of Vision blog tour officially ends tomorrow. I would like to thank all the
wonderful bloggers who were so willing and enthusiastic in helping me with my tour. I sent out
lots of emails, thinking I’d get a fraction of response, but ended up getting over a hundred of
them, including some people I didn’t have to invite who just jumped in and wanted to participate!
Thank you so much to everyone for your help and support. It’s been a great tour!
I will wrap up on my blog, Musings on Fantasia, tomorrow, and there are a few more posts later in the month that we couldn’t manage earlier, but the official tour ends this week. For today, Juli wanted me to talk about, as I wrap up, what I want people to know about my book.
There are so many things, and yet I find it hard to actually put anything into words. I want people to know how much delight I take in what I do, how much I love my characters and creating great worlds and stories. I want my readers to know that I write for them every bit as much as for myself, and that I will endeavor to never let them down. I want people to know that I began this story because I have a passion for this world and this story, and I intend to see it through. And that I’ll do my best to make it bigger and deeper and a worth escaping into.
Mostly, I want people to simply know that this story exists and that, even if they don’t want to
or can’t follow this journey with me now, it will be there whenever they do want to. Like great
dystopian stories, I’m here to stay.
Thanks so much to all my wonderful blogger friends and all my supportive readers. I hope we
can all be part of one another’s world in one way or another for a very long time.
