“This near-future sf thriller illuminates tipping points in ecological power and scientific pursuit. An action-packed plot, with well-rounded characters and an intriguing premise make it recommended for all collections.” – Library Journal
“[An] eloquently written dystopian debut… Winter’s well-rounded characters and obvious potential will have readers tuning in for the next installment.”- Publishers Weekly
“The Gatherer by Colleen Winter is my favorite kind of Crichton-esque thriller: smart, compelling, and beautifully written; a fascinating story in which a talented scientist has to save the world from the Frankenstein monster she herself created before falling victim to the power she has inadvertently unleashed. Convincingly realistic and endlessly surprising, readers won’t be able to stop turning the pages!” – Karen Dionne, #1 internationally bestselling author of The Marsh King’s Daughter
It was meant to save the world, not destroy it.
Storm Freeman is the inventor of the Gatherer, a device that brings infinite, free energy to the world and ushers in an era of wealth and decadence like the world has never seen. Until people start getting sick. Including her.
This is where The Gatherer begins with Storm having to seek out and destroy what she created.
