IT BEGINS WITH THE SOUND OF A VOICE . . .
Derek Nilsson is an elite programmer toiling away at BitJockey.com while he spends all of his available time in pursuit of an enigmatic and possibly world-altering trove of data that has disappeared off the grid. When a message comes through his computer claiming to have all of the answers Derek seeks, he has no choice but to go where the voice leads him.
Where it leads him is far beyond the comforts of his console. To a world of ancient goddesses and ageless mysteries he was never aware of. To an encounter with a past that Derek believed was long gone. To a woman who engages his mind and spirit in unprecedented ways. And to a spirit that motivates him, seduces him, and puts everything that matters to him at risk. This spirit that might literally lead him to move mountains – if it doesn’t kill him first.
. . . IT ENDS WITH THE SOUND OF THE WORLD CHANGING.
Soundrise is a heady blend of awesome technology, dazzling fantasy, gripping adventure, and poignant human interaction. At once epic and deeply personal, it is a sound like no other.
"Lynn Voedisch's Soundrise is a fast, fun run through the strange and mystical, with a unique cast of characters who keep things jumping, and more plot twists than you can count. Put it all together and you have a great read!" —Renee James, author of Seven Suspects, A Kind of Justice,Transition to Murder, Coming Out Can Be Murder
"Soundrise by Lynn Voedisch is a compelling mashup of a post-modern Mr. Robot and the search for an ancient scientific breakthrough that could change the world. It’s also the story of a young man who finds himself by facing the physical and emotional dangers of that search. Part sci-fi, part romance, part mystery, Soundrise delivers a well-written, exciting, and surprisingly poignant story that will leave you thinking about the characters well after you’ve read the last page."
