Attis awakens, alone in a strange place - a world where creatures like him do not exist. He must hide his true identity from the indigenous life around him. Humans they are called - fragile yet violent creatures. If they knew what manner of technology went into to Attis' creation, or what he was capable of, they would have him studied, locked away. No time to worry about that now. Attis must find his purpose; in order to do that, he must first find his creator - Jephetto. This master engineer holds the secret to Attis' amazing power. He alone knows what magick lies within the emerald at the back of Attis' neck. It's been seven years since Jephetto gave life to his most wonderful creation. He was the first thing that Attis laid eyes on - the middle aged man, badly wounded and bleeding. What became of him? Does Jephetto still live? To make things even stranger, there is another, a stone similar to the green power source in Attis' possession. Charette Duval, a college student and aspiring alchemist with a mysterious past, holds the crimson stone known as The Ladybug. Its power calls to Attis; it beckons him closer to Charette - precisely where she doesn't want anyone to be. Will they delve deep into the lives of one another? Unearthing secrets not meant for this world? Will their combined power prove too much to handle? Swept up in a whirlwind of magick beyond their understanding, of technology beyond imagination, they will change the lives of all the touch. They will discover what it means to truly be alive.

About J B Maynard

J. B. Maynard grew up in Hollywood, Florida, and he has lived most of his life in the Sunshine State. As a youth, his father encouraged him to practice martial arts, and this experience paired with his love of comics, science fiction, Dungeons and Dragons, and numerous other staples of nerd culture, have had a significant impact on his writing. His favorite writers include: Jonathan Mayberry, R.A. Salvator, and Sherryl Kennyon. His A.T.T.I.S. series is very special to him because the main character is one his wife, Noel, helped him create for a Big Eyes, Small Mouthroleplaying game he was joining with a friend. Rather than filling in a typical character sheet, Noel wrote a short story about Attis. Immediately struck with a whole world of possibilities, in two years' time, he'd written seven books introducing Attis to the world. Alacrity is the first book in the series. J.B. Maynard is a Mason by day and a writer by night. He has a close circle of friends, whom he considers family and a loving wife and two step children. He is also the proud owner of two Boston terriers and a well-mannered, but slightly disturbed border collie that he loves to more
