I haven’t had so freaking much fun reading a book in eons. I read hundreds of books a year … my choices are usually detective-mysteries, thrillers, SciFi adventure with a smattering of good to escapism romance and loads of non-fiction. BUT honestly … this has to be the first time in a long time that I actually had FUN and DELIGHT in the reading process. … Truly a FUN FUN read. Get the book, you will LOVE it! -Amazon Review
Bonnie’s New Auntie:
The Angel Brings Fire / The Future Burns Bright Epilogue I
Meet Bonnie Billings : a 16-year-old “C” student with “D” looks and an “E” future ahead of her, living in a “C” household in the Phoenix, Arizona of the 2040s.
A lot’s been happening “out there” lately, but neither Bonnie nor her family pay much attention; they’re too preoccupied with keeping up with the Joneses and – in Bonnie’s case – in surviving non-stop bullying from the “in-crowd” at her dreary, run-of-the mill, suburban high-school.
This evening, her father’s younger brother – one “Bob Billings” from Tucson – is coming over for dinner, after a prolonged, unexplained absence.
Uncle Bob’s bringing his whole clan, but Bonnie despises boring family get-togethers… and her uncle has a new trophy girlfriend, who’s everything that Bonnie had forlornly hoped to be, but came in “last in class” about.
And what’s even worse (so she’s been told) is – adding insult to injury – this way-too-young-looking woman is now going to be Bonnie’s “Auntie”!
The Billings teenager hates Uncle Bob’s new “squeeze”, sight-unseen; but Bonnie’s new “Auntie” is unlike anyone who has ever set foot on Planet Earth… and Bonnie’s “C” lifestyle is in for a big change!
About Marcus Shields
Having been an avid consumer (and part-time supplier) of science fiction and fantasy content is nothing new to Marcus Shields, who has been partaking thereof since he was old enough to read (modesty precludes the author from revealing exactly how long ago, that was).
Shields is the author of a large number of so-far-unpublished works, ranging from the Shakhan series of pen and paper fantasy role-playing games, to a daily series of political e-mail blasts to all who are interested (and many more who are not). And, of course, he’s the author of the “Angel Brings Fire” and the “Future Burns Bright” series of science fiction / modern fantasy / superhero novels.
Marcus Shields resides in beautiful Bancroft, Ontario, Canada, where he shares a comfortable country home with his wife, daughter and very furry, and very spoiled, “cross-breed” (a.k.a., “mutt”) dog.
