“The story is centered around a hidden city called Leviathan that lies deep within the dark trenches of the Pacific Ocean. The city is home to a community of immortals that sought to create a utopia over 1,000 years ago. For a millennia, they lived in peace and secrecy, gently influencing world events to aid the advancement of mankind. But a terrible secret has been kept deep within the catacombs of Leviathan that threatens the existence of the immortals, and quite possibly the entire world.
“One woman named Macallan Orsel, a young genetic scientist in New York, discovers she is descended from a group of immortals that rebelled against Leviathan and are now waging a civil war around the globe. As the immortal war spills into the realm of mortal man, Macallan realizes that she holds the key to stopping the battle and bringing peace to Leviathan. But a clandestine government agency called The Blackdoor Group is trying to exterminate the immortal population and has identified Macallan as their critical target.

About the Author
Christof Laputka was born and raised in New York City and loved every second of it. Despite sending most of his professional career on Wall Street, Laputka managed to find time to write short stories, essays, and generally let his imagination wander to the world’s most hidden places and commune with the wildest characters on Earth.
Science fiction is his first love. Laputka grew up on classic sci-fi TV like Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who, and Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. After embracing his utter geekdom, he discovered podcasting and thought it was the best way to deliver his stories of a dark future with heroic people.
