Mirror X Blog Tour

Mirror X by Karri Thompson
November 17 – 21, 2014

Cassie Dannacher wakes up in a hospital over 1,000 years into the future after her space capsule is retrieved from space. She soon learns that 600 years prior to her arrival, the earth was struck by a plague, killing over half of the world’s population. Naïve and desperate, Cassie, who longs for home and is having trouble adjusting to the new, dictatorial 31st century government, is comforted by Michael Bennett, the 20-year old lead geneticist at the hospital where she was revived.

But why is Cassie in genetics’ hospital in the first place, and why do several of the people around her seem so familiar, including Travel Carson, the hot and edgy boy she is fated to meet? Soon she discovers there is a sinister answer to all of her questions – and that they want something from Cassie that only she can give.

Barnes & Noble:

“No one’s watching us, Cassie. I made this room temporarily free. I meant what I said.” Michael lowered his voice and met my eyes with a gaze so intense I drew away from him and turned toward the window. When he set his hand on my shoulder, I jerked away.
“You know how I feel about you. For the sake of the program and for the sake of my own heart, I’ve tried to push those feelings away, but it’s been impossible,” he said, replacing his hands as I crossed my arms.
His grip on my shoulders tightened as he searched my eyes for emotions that matched his own, but before I could severe our gaze, his lips were against mine, hot and hard as his palms slid to my upper arms. My raw anger was eclipsed by my need for comfort and love, my lips parted, and my arms fell loosely to my sides, accepting his kiss.
When his hands shifted to my back, drawing me closer, his kisses filled of desperation. I told myself to stop and push away, but with my next breath, the woodsy smell of his cologne lulled my rage.
You can’t do this Cassie. Stop! Remember what he did. He’s one of them.

“No,” I shouted, pushing away. “Things are different now. I don’t want to be with you.”

Growing up in San Diego, California, Karri Thompson spent much of her years at the beach, reading novels, tanning, and listening to music. At SDSU, she earned a BA in English, MA in education, and her teaching credential. As a wife, mother, and high-school English teacher, she began writing novels, giving all of the compelling plots and unique characters in her head a home. Victorian literature rocks her socks, and when she’s not writing, jogging, going to concerts, or watching her son play football, she’s reading Dickens.
