Jamie Edmondson is friends with nearly everybody, as long as they don’t disagree with his strident views on the environment. When he leads an expedition up the California coast to the discovery of a new race of humans who live under the sea, things change. That’s when he meets some really bad people who don’t like humans that aren’t human. We call them Neptunes, and this race of telepaths threatens everything we humans stand for. When Jamie falls for a beautiful young Neptune, he discovers that when you’re underwater, no one can count your tears.

About the Author:

Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, Warren worked as an advertising executive in the travel industry for 30-plus years. He is a recipient of a Clio award and is best known for creating the Alaska Airlines Eskimo logo. His experience with Alaska Airlines opened many doors for him in the travel and tourism industry and he started his own company called Turning Heads. He also became a book packager, editor, designer and writer in collaboration with several illustrators, producing more than 100 children’s books. He attended the San Francisco Academy of Art, majoring in graphic design and art direction. Warren is an avid traveler to Asia, Europe and the South Pacific. In his first novel, Stairway of the Gods, Warren took the legendary story of Japanese officer, General Tomoyuki Yamashita—who is rumored to have buried priceless spoils of war in the Philippines just before the end of World War II—and turned it into riveting fiction. Warren’s tale of skullduggery unfolds on the slopes of the Banaue rice terraces when an earthquake reveals Yamashita’s treasure, and Joan and Paul Webster are stuck on the mountain. When Joan is faced with trying to keep the discovery secret, they find themselves confronted with deceit, betrayal and murder. His third novel, Hong Kong Blues, is a Hitchcock-style thriller about a newly-married couple being chased by two Hong Kong Triads, who want to learn the last words of a man who died in their arms. Early readers liked the characters so well that he has started a spinoff series called The Inspector Kwong Mysteries and has finished the first three novellas: The Quartz, The River and The Fog. He is currently at work on the fourth Kwong book. The Gift and Other Stories. He lives in San Diego with his wife, Laurel.

Review:

Four Stars! "Saffron is the first book of The Neptune Chronicles by Vic Warren. This is the second book I've read from Vic Warren. I was expecting a lot and I was not disappointed. The Neptunes are a unique race and much more realistic than some of the other "merpeople" books that I've read. Vic Warren has great skill in writing his characters, making them original and interesting. It was a fun and fascinating read and I can't wait to read more in the series." Reviewed By Katelyn Hensel for Readers' Favorite
