Description

"A twisty, thought-provoking futuristic tale that unnerves and enthralls."--Family Circle In a future where women are a rare commodity, Emma fights for freedom but is held captive by the love of two men--one her husband, the other her worst enemy. If only she could remember which is which. In the stunning first volume of a two-book series that will appeal to readers of William Gibson and Philip K. Dick, Emma wakes with her memory wiped clean. Her husband, Declan--a powerful and seductive man--narrates the story of her past, but Emma's dreams contradict him. They show her war, a camp where girls are trained to be wives, and love for another man. Something inside warns her not to speak of these things, but the line between her dreams and reality is about to shatter forever.

Review Text

"The literary equivalent of a big-screen blockbuster with its beautiful but deadly heroine, tragic love triangle and grim futuristic setting. The closest thing in print may be Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale, but Emma is Offred with mixed martial arts training. Given a chance to flee the male-dominated, baby-obsessed culture in which she has been ensnared, Emma picks up a gun and goes down fighting."-Associated Press

"A twisty, thought-provoking futuristic tale that unnerves and enthralls."-Family Circle

"Every now and then a book comes along that is truly unique, unforgettable, and genre-bending. Debut author Waters bursts onto the scene with a stunning first book of a duology. . . . Do not miss out!"-Romantic Times

"M.D. Waters has given us that rare and wonderful action heroine who possesses both nerve and emotional depth. That rich characterization combined with an intricately crafted sci-fi mystery made Archetype an enthralling debut that I couldn't put down."-#1 New York Times bestselling author Richelle Mead
