Jamie Edmondson is friends with nearly everybody, as long as they don’t disagree with his strident views on the environment. When he leads an expedition to the discovery of a new race of humans who live under the sea, things change. That’s when he meets some really bad people who don’t like humans that aren’t human. This present-day epic adventure takes place on the California coast. We call them Neptunes, and this race of telepaths threatens everything we humans stand for. When Jamie falls for a beautiful young Neptune, he discovers that when you’re underwater, no one can count your tears. Is Vic Warren’s romantic thriller sci-fi? Or mainstream fiction? Whatever it is, it’ll keep you on the edge of your seat.
Warren is really excited about the premise and implications of Saffron, and has decided that it’s the first book in a series which he’s calling The Neptune Chronicles. The second in the series is called Girl on a Dolphin and will be out in late 2014.
