J.S. Leonardabout this book: Depart from your daily life and let Modern Rituals envelope you as only a fast-paced, thriller can. I wrote this book for those who love the ride, that love insight into guarded secrets and taboo, that want to breach forbidden boundaries and relish in the adventure.
Modern Rituals follows seven "selected" individuals thrust into a deadly ceremony whose outcome determines humanity's future. Picture yourself at one moment dawdling about New York and then find yourself transported to a foreign place--no warning, no sense of travel--you are simply "there." This is the predicament in which James Bixby, a young, strapping techno-artist, suddenly finds himself. As do six others, each arriving at a mysterious Japanese school.
The story unravels with mounting tension until reaching a mind-blowing conclusion.
I am a geek by trade. I devour science-based non-fiction and love placing such geek-fodder into my work--it provides a tasty realism and "what could be." I also love mythology, mystery and fantasy, all of which are woven throughout this book's lively narrative. If you love Tech Noir, or crossover sci-fi, I promise the story will take hold of your eyeballs and inject an unforgettable experience into your occipital lobe.
It's good stuff. Don't take my word for it--look at the number of positive reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. People want this kind of book in their lives. Hell, "I" need this kind of book in my life, and I want to share it with you.
As Til Knowles quoted in a recent publication: "J.S. Leonard sits neatly in that grey area between someone like Suzanne Collins and Neil Gaiman, without being derivative of either." If you love stories of survival and modern myth, then Modern Rituals: The Wayward Three will not let go until you walk away wholly satisfied--and maybe somewhat red-eyed.
