Escape into a different kind of story. Benders is an exciting, contemporary, science fiction thriller tossed with supernatural powers and a heart-warming romance.
An easy-going young man, Monty has spent his life at a distance from those around him as he hides his unique talent to bend people’s thoughts to do anything he desires. Unaware that these abilities are being monitored, Monty exposes himself with a reckless act and puts himself in the crosshairs of Hazelton, a power-hungry uber-patriot who hunts down each bender for execution to ensure his attempt at seizing global power comes to fruition.
Mieko, Monty’s fiery lover, partners with his oldest friend in a race to find and rescue the best man she’s ever met and the only one powerful enough to save the world from Hazelton's insane plan. Those that know Monty are willing to risk it all for him. Do they have what it takes to accomplish their mission, or will their sacrifice be in vain?
Mark Eric, an up and coming indie novelist, bursts into today's fictional landscape with a refreshing blend of realistic heroes within larger than life plots. He pours his creative energy onto the page in a way that both thrills and entertains as he infuses his stories with characters that become fond friends and dreaded enemies that beg to be destroyed.
A Breathless Thrilling Escape!
The first time I read Benders I couldn't stop smiling. Monty and Mieko charmed me immediately with their banter. I loved their story and adventure. Mieko also ROCKS as she's a woman I can absolutely relate to! Throughout the story...I laughed. I cried. I even growled a time or two. I held my breath and raced through pages. Benders will always have a place in my heart. It was a fun and enjoyable read with thrills, action, drama, and friendships we all crave. I look VERY forward to Mark Eric's next novel and a long career of storytelling!!!
