Flaws, physics, mystics and lots of chilled Reyka converge on an anti-healer’s twisted path of self-discovery. THE LOOK OF AMIE MARTINE is a novel set in Phoenix, L.A., Iceland, 13th century Persia and the fields of Elysium. Thirty-four-year-old Amie (as in the French, mon amie) is a reluctant healer with the ability to trespass and manipulate the fabric of reality.
Seven years ago, she buried her past on a lava field in Iceland and succeeded in never looking back — until now. As past inevitably collides with present, Amie must choose to shatter and open up her quietly exotic life, or burrow deeper into darkness.
This is a story of what happens when we resist, then fall prey to a lurking, insidious epiphany. Heartbreaking losses and mystic interventions – L.A. producers, Sufi poets, gritty NYC speakeasies – dangerous Dutch lovers, PTSD for actors – a sexy new take on Orpheus and Eurydice served with chasers of very, very, very cold Icelandic vodka… The LOOK has a vast, global scope with an intimacy you will not want to leave.
