Praise for The Actuator: Fractured Earth:
"A tale of a world with a machine, The Actuator, that can create different realities from people's imaginations. The Actuator has been sabotaged and these imaginary worlds have escaped the machine's confines and are replacing the reality of Earth with worlds of aliens, vampires, pirates and others. Those who survived the initial effects and who understand what's going on must travel thru these various worlds to find the keys to transform Earth back to one normal reality. I found the premise interesting and the story intriguing. Wymore and James have combined two of my favorite genres, science fiction and fantasy, shaken them up, thrown in a couple of pretty cool heroes and left me waiting for the next in the series!" -Pat Z. (NGMA Books)
About the Book:
On a secret military base tucked in a remote desert mountain, a dangerous machine lies hidden from the American public. Known as "The Actuator", this machine is capable of transforming entire communities into alternate realities. In theory, these often terrifying realities are reversible. The scientists in charge of this machine employ operatives called Machine Monks, who attune their minds to manifest single ideas from the realms of fantasy and science fiction. These ideas are then superimposed upon sparsely inhabited areas for testing. For a while, the enigmatic Actuator cooperates with the experiments, using dampeners to limit the affected area. But those in charge of the project eagerly anticipate exploring the full potential of this amazing device. Experiments progress to where they feed more than twenty different genre ideas simultaneously into the Actuator's database. Meanwhile, an unknown saboteur dismantles the dampeners. The effect is catastrophic. The entire world is plunged into chaos, and familiar landscapes become a deadly patchwork of genre horrors. Overnight, the Actuator becomes the worst menace the earth has ever seen, claiming lives in staggering numbers. Can a few surviving Machine Monks band together to set things right again? It all depends on whether Red McLaren and the Monks can survive their journey through the various realms that separate them from the Actuator, where ever-present orcs, aliens, pirates, and vampires seek to destroy them. They must move quickly, as time is running out to stop the Actuator and the villain who controls it and the earth's destiny.
