9780979451300: Solstice

Words are murder.
Scribes have a gift. Whatever they write comes true. Misfortune. Theft. Even murder. Editors-covert specialists operating beyond the law-watch over them. Among the Editors, Io is the best, and the most ruthless. But on her way to her next assignment, something happens. Her phone rings-along with every other phone on the planet.

What would you do if you knew the world would end next week?
A single phone call to the world's populations asks this question. A day later, the same message writes itself on walls, TV screens, even flesh. Confusion and fear erupt into chaos. Riots and mass murders spread like wildfire. Io discovers a Scribe named Nadie sent the message. But the message is only the beginning.

The final winter solstice.
In two weeks, on the day of the winter solstice, Nadie promises a final judgment. Battling a world spiraling into mass hysteria and her own dark past, Io must race to stop Nadie before the solstice. But as the Scribe's nightmare scenario engulfs the world in a series of supernatural catastrophes, Io uncovers a shocking possibility: Is Nadie planning to write humanity's extermination? And is Nadie somehow linked to her past?
