Series Description:

Max Lucas only ever worried about one thing- how she was going to score her next bottle. She’s not proud, but it’s the only thing that ever gets the voices to shut up.

When a horrific murder lifts the veil on her mysterious ancestry, she finally learns the reason why she can hear the thoughts of an entire city and why she can move objects with her mind. She’s a Preternatural.

Now, the ancient Preternaturals who once ruled the world as gods need her help to keep safe the most precious of human resources: the human soul. The entirety of human history has been written on the back of a conflict between the Preternaturals and the Vapids, an enemy that could upset the natural balance by profiting from the removal of human souls. Max will learn that hard way that the version of history you read about in textbooks is always written by the winners, and until now, that has been the side she’s chosen.

To protect the human soul, Max agrees to become the only weapon that can fight against the Vapids. But, right now...she just needs a goddamn drink.

"These characters are real! They're rounded, they talk like human beings and not TV drama characters, and they've got issues. Bigger issues than I can imagine, sounds like. I'm looking forward to reading the full book."

Zack Jordan, author of The Life Interstellar.

"Just when you think a female protagonist can't possibly be more badass or have more attitude than Jessica Jones, author Rebekka Leber rolls out Max Lucas to prove you wrong. The first three excerpts take you on a ride you can't possibly see coming, and leave you hanging with questions you're dying to have answered. All of Shiva's thumbs way up!"

Elayna Mae Darcy, author of They Are the Last.

"It’s tricky to juxtapose different tones in any type of writing.  And Rebekka is doin’ it WELL.  This is a skillful blend of mythological dark fantasy with razor sharp contemporary wit.  The protagonist is realistically flawed, charming, and intriguing.  Rebekka crafts visceral and cinematic imagery in both modern and ancient settings.  She has a mastery of authentic, organic dialogue in both the present and the past.  You’ll be on the floor laughing at the effortless humor one minute, and in awe at the power of the gods in the next.  I’m going to enjoy watching it progress, and can’t wait until it’s finished.  Reading this is definitely worth your time.  Read it, recommend it, and show it some Inkshares love.  This one’s going to be a great ride.

"This book has me giddy in all the right ways. It blends the real with the fantastical, while serving up a hefty dose of attitude. Delving into the territories of religion, mythology, alcoholism, and conspiracy is no easy task, but Leber handles them with ease. I've immensely enjoyed what I've read so far. The lead is especially a great joy to read, with her complexity and rawness, but also because of her humor! If you like strong women, complex characters, sarcasm, and grit, you're going to want this book."
