Global Pandemic is raging.
Olivya Wright-Ono's once loving home has been converted to a hospice for the dying. Her ability to see auras forces her to witness, with agonizing detail, the vibrant colors of life consumed by malignancy.
The beautiful and troubled, Mikah, is an elite Empath in the ancient Kindred clan, led by the brooding, ever-morphing, monster named Prime. Mikah has learned a terrible truth. The plague is linked to Kindred origins.
When Olivya sees evidence of disease creeping into her mother's aura, she has no one to turn to but Mikah. Together, can they unearth the Kindred's secrets and find a cure? Can she trust this boy whose power allows him to manipulate her very emotions?
With her mother's life and the fate of the world in the balance, Olivya and Mikah embark on a quest to stop the Pandemic, only to discover it is far, far more than a mere disease . . .

When you can see and feel the suffering of others, a hospital is not the place to be. "The Apocalypse Gene" is a spin of fate and life from Suki Michelle and Carlyle Clark as they tell the story of Olivya and Mikah, two young people blessed with the power of detecting suffering through supernatural empathy and seeing auras. As the world falls apart, the two find they must hunt for a legendary cure unless the world and they too be consumed by fate. "The Apocalypse Gene" is a thoughtful read with plenty to consider, highly recommended.
~Midwest Book Review
In a journey through cyberspace (cleverly named Cy-Chi), Olivya and Mikah battle inhuman forces and millennia-old characters to save humanity from complete obliteration. Well-developed colorful characters, such as Lylobriel and Ayvilo, Olivya's "mini me" whose language and deeds are completely unfiltered, lend both humor and intrigue to the already exciting and fast-paced story. With its snappy, razor-sharp dialogue and wildly vivid imagery, the book, while geared toward young adults, has plenty for adults to enjoy as well. This is the first novel by this author duo; an impressive endeavor.
"The Apocalypse Gene is so imaginative and original that I couldn't put it down! An extremely well-crafted tale set in a futuristic world that is nothing short of extraordinary. I fell in love with the sassy and incredibly clever Olivya, the most fascinating and hip young heroine to arrive on the scene in years. Buckle up for an unmatched thrill ride through a mystical realm where nothing is as it seems, and heart-stopping twists and turns lurk around every dark corner."
~Erin Brown, former editor at HarperCollins and Thomas Dunne Books, a division of St. Martin's Press
"The Apocalypse Gene is an unforgettable adventure that will take you from the virtual terrain of Cyber-Chicago to the edge of the galaxy in a struggle to save the world from a deadly plague. Olivya and Mikah, two extraordinary individuals full of passion and verve, live a bold legacy that inspires the imagination long after the last page is finished. A delightful read that integrates the best of science fiction and fantasy. Don't miss it!"
~Karin Rita Gastreich, Author, "Eolyn", May 2011, Hadley Rille Books
"The Apocalypse Gene is fast paced, action packed, and laugh out loud funny, with vivid imagery, all set in a 'spanky', futuristic world. Innovative characters jump off the pages with such amazing clarity and snappy dialogue that it makes this a very enjoyable read. Olivya is definitely a character you can't help falling in love with."
~Susan Stec, Author, "The Grateful Undead Series", January 2011, Black Matrix Publishing, LLC
"I loved this exciting, edge-of-the-seat adventure. The Apocalypse Gene carries you along, and the characters are amazing, especially Olivya, who is a rare combination of realistic, edgy, admirable, and interesting. I highly recommend this book!"
~Sheila Dalton, Author, "The Girl in the Box", April 2011, RendezVous Press
