MAZE MASTER and the ancient story of Daedalus

COMING IN JULY, 2018!

Daedalus is famous for his clever inventions and as the architect of the Minotaur’s labyrinth on Crete. He was also the father of Icarus who flew too close to the sun. He played an interesting role in MAZE MASTER.

In the story, Dr. James Hakari, known to his genetics students as the Maze Master, has vanished. But all around the world he’s leaving clues to a maze that must be deciphered if the world is to survive. Here’s the question that both Daedalus and Hakari had to answer: How do you create a maze to hold the most terrifying beast in the world? Is it possible? Or will the beast always escape…

Jon Land, author of THE RISING, says…

MAZE MASTER is getting some nice advance praise…

     “MAZE MASTER is a masterpiece of a bio-thriller that seamlessly melds science and superstition into a      tale as relentless as it is riveting. Kathleen Gear has lent credence and credibility to the end-of-the-world tale championed by the likes of WORLD WAR Z, I AM LEGEND, and Stephen King’s THE STAND. This is speculative storytelling at its level best, weaving cutting edge genetics into a puzzle that must be solved if mankind is to survive. A master of the historical novel, Gear proves herself equally adept at handling the future in this cure for the common thriller.”

Kind words from TESS GERRITSEN…

Hi All,

Very kind words from Tess Gerritsen, 

“From the very first page, you’ll know you’re in the hands of a master storyteller. With plenty of “Da Vinci Code” twists and turns, MAZE MASTER is both thrilling and mind-bending.” Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of I KNOW A SECRET.

“Landscape of Dreams: The Creative West,” 7 PM at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, April 19, 2018

Hi All,

Just some background…   Kirk Ellis has won the Emmy Award, Spur Award, and the Western Heritage Wrangler Award.  His screen credits include, “Anne Frank,” “Into the West,” and “John Adams.”  His work has been nominated for a total of 50 Emmy Awards.  

And!  Well, you know us.

New Review for MOON HUNT!

We just received a lovely review for MOON HUNT in the Providence Journal:

“Few authors have ever been able to lay claim to a genre. But Kathleen and Michael Gear have taken historical fiction and made it all their own, as clearly displayed in “Moon Hunt” (Forge, 416 pages, $26.99), the third in their Native American Morning Star series.

All the staples of the Gears’ brilliant, richly drawn tapestries are firmly on display here, once again… The Gears have reconstructed Moon Hunt’s ancient world with such vivid tones and expertly crafted detail that it magically comes to life in the tradition of James Michener. But they’re much better storytellers and the result is a tale certain to generate broad appeal, whether you’re a history buff or not.”

Providence Journal, December 19, 2017.

Thanks! It’s always a relief to get a great review!

Hope everyone is having warm and wonderful holidays!
