Nicholas Grabowsky's widely-praised aliens-among-us horror/science fiction epic, available in its original award-winning version
The Everborn concerns the offspring of fallen angels that have lived among us since the dawn of man. Throughout the ages, they live life after life in normal society until each one falls in love and fathers his own child. Before that child is born, they undergo a rapid degeneration into a fetal state before they disappear entirely and become reborn into a new life, essentially becoming their own fathers.
All of them male, they live out their commonplace lives under the covert protection of Watchmaids, inter-dimensional female beings whose purpose is to ensure no harm comes to them under penalty of banishment into a state of eternal loneliness.
When an Everborn is reborn as a set of twins, one a soulless serial killer on a quest to be born again into a sinless life and the other a kind-hearted ghostwriter for a world-famous rock-and-roll horror novelist, a banished Watchmaid claims her role in an ancient prophecy to use the soulless twin as a means to re-enter our world and bring about its destruction.
"My Dear Nicholas: You seem to me---in a way that's entirely admirable----a man out of time. You're writing horror epics when the audience has become increasingly numbed by cinematic hokum and stale ideas. I SALUTE YOU: your ambition, your dedication, your achievements. I have no doubt in my mind that there is much, much more to come from your fertile and blissfully complex imagination, and I'll await the next work with much anticipation " ----Clive Barker (Hellraiser, director, producer, artist and bestselling author)
"THE EVERBORN is a terrifying collision of genetics-gone-wrong science fiction and they-are-already-here UFO thriller. This is a nail biter " --Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of DEAD OF NIGHT and ASSASSIN'S CODE
Golden Award winner Best Science Fiction Novel of 2004..... --American Author's Association, Northern California
***** 5 stars (highest rating) "ALL HAIL GRABOWSKY .....a captivating plot completely unique...with a story so imaginative and profound, even I was astounded....satisfying a reader's interest in alternative science fiction, classic horror, suspense and yes, folks, even gore. The atmosphere is complex, murky and entraps you. The style of writing is blunt, audacious and head-on.....this book rises above the average horror/science fiction novel " ------Horror-web.com
"Grabowsky's writing is at times touching and emotional, however, his real talent is his ability to infuse his writing with a sense of dread and loathing that I have not experienced since H.P. Lovecraft..........(a) unique and often terrifying world that Sacramento novelist Nicholas Grabowsky launches us into......(it) has the feel of an "X-Files" episode, at other very twisted turns it delves into the psychedelic. For those of us looking for something new in the alien horror genre, look not to the stars, but look to Nicholas Grabowsky's "The Everborn." -----Tahoe Daily Tribune
