Kristin McTiernan Release SUNDERKristin McTiernan Release SUNDER
by BWW News Desk - Jul 21, 2015

Kristin McTiernan's novel, 'Sunder,' introduces a bold new voice in the world of sci-fi Literature. Available exclusively at Amazon, 'Sunder' tells the story of Isabella, an over-privileged and spoiled woman. It takes a murder attempt and a forced trip into the distant past for Isabella to discover herself and the spiritual forces acting on her life. 'I've never liked the trend that smart strong women in popular culture must always be non-believers. I thought it was time for a book with outstanding writing that is kind to religious believers.' McTiernan's writing uses a magical realism style that takes a hard look at the real world, while also accepting the spiritual undercurrent that flows through it. In 'Sunder,' Isabella has spent her 27 years with wealth and status, thanks to her father's ownership of the country's sole time travel corporation. Living such a charmed life, it is easy for her to be thoughtless-so blissfully unaware of the secrets in her own home, the secrets that may get her killed. In a bitter act of revenge, Isabella's planned time travel to 1921 Brussels is sabotaged, propelling her into the distant past. Captured, brutalized, and facing worse than death, Isabella makes some surprising allies and discovers the truth behind her father's rise to power and the terrible price the entire world paid for it. She must somehow break free and find a way home, not only to save herself, but to restore history to its rightful direction. McTiernan's recent interview with SFFWorld.com affirms her presence in the genre and the impact of her powerful characters, riveting plot, and 'Sunder's' place as the first book of America's next great trilogy.
