Claremont, CA – March 20, 2016 — Pelekinesis is proud to announce the release of Right of Capture by Isadora Deese, the first in a new five-book science fiction cycle.

In Right of Capture, shape-shifting creatures and deadly portals have appeared, made possible by an otherworldly energy that exists not buried in deep pockets underground, but deep inside two children, Roan and Judge Gorey.

It’s a real shame they don’t get along.

To Judge, his sister is a selfish hack who deserves some payback. Roan thinks Judge is nothing more than a mistake that needs erasing. The rest of the world is caught in the crossfire.

Dimond Industries claims a cure to their condition, but at what price? Possession requires containment, and the answer to the mysterious origin of the Gorey children must be found—or constructed. Are the children a product of Nature, or a side effect of experiment?

Will Roan and Judge destroy the world before being given the chance to save it?

The exciting adventure begins October 13, 2016 when Right of Capture is released through Small Press Distribution, Baker & Taylor, Bertrams, Ingram, directly from the publisher's website, and in fine local bookstores worldwide.
