Upload information….Download ANNIHILATION: Every second, people are uploading information and saving it to ‘The Cloud’. It knows everything, each individual’s personal details, and the complete history of mankind. A super solar flare, or Coronal Mass Ejection, strikes the Earth, sending a powerful EMP across the Globe knocking out electrical grids and equipment, plunging parts of the Earth into darkness and without power. At that exact time, scientists had been working on ‘machine learning’ computer programs, however, when power was restored across the World and computers rebooted, something was different. The Cloud had become sentient. It can think for itself and starts to correct the mistakes made on Earth by its human inhabitants. It has no ethical guidance and it’s decisions are based purely on algorithms. Every individual now has a neural implant behind their left eye called Iris which connects them to the internet, as well as defining their status in society. People can watch the news in real time, communicate with each other and download any information they want from The Cloud. As Iris sets out to ‘repair’ the World, millions die because they have been deemed ‘surplus to requirements’ as they have not contributed positively to society. The story follows the lives of two children, Cayden and Stella who grow up in this era of advanced technology. The problem is, this advanced technology is killing people. They both fulfil their childhood ambitions to become astronauts, and now the future of the World depends on them. The solution to this problem however, cannot be solved here on Earth.

Former SEAL and Shaolin-trained martial arts master, Major Jon Coulter, USMC, is ordered to work with a minor female telepath to find a mindreacher who can identify terrorists hell bent on destroying the United States with nuclear weapons and at the same time, determine if telepathy could be used in future combat situations.

This first novel in the mindreacher series is filled with terrorists, technology, telepathy and global adventures of the American duo battling assassins from al-Qaeda groups and their amoebic offspring who don’t want to be identified.
Will a mindreacher be powerful enough to fly over a city and find terrorists?
COMMENTS ABOUT MINDREACHER:
…I was swept off my feet by a far more complex scenario. … what startled me about this story was just how different a path it took. It is loaded with psychological and scientific intricacies that really make you wonder. For instance if a group of children are telepathic what would that mean for their learning capabilities? Their emotional and intellectual growth? Their behavior? Would they even bother to speak verbally? These questions are within the first few chapters and they don’t stop as the story picks up pace and asks even deeper questions while dodging assassins. It’s a bit like Jurassic Park but instead of dinosaurs its psychics. The science is dense and the ethical complications are thought provoking. This book will change everything you think you know about psychics. I highly suggest this to anyone who loves science fiction or is interested in psychics. Author: Theophanes Avery
A terrific geopolitical sci-fi thriller.
Mindreacher is a top-notch geopolitical sci-fi thriller that is epic in its scope, truly original and encyclopedic in its details. Irene imbues the novel with ideas that only someone with her amazing personal biography could bring to a novel of this kind. This is the second book of Irene’s I’ve read and this one, like her Mary Knew, is written with such clarity that even the most complex concepts are very easy to grasp. In Mindreacher the United States faces nuclear destruction by terrorists unless a mindreacher – a person with telepathic power – can be found to assist in locating the terrorists. Enter a U.S. Marine who adds dash and heroism to the story that expands the globe. Remarkably, at the back of the novel is a detailed glossary and five pages of references (Did I mention the novel is filled with facts?). I highly recommend this book. Author: Steve Carr
A great summer read. I think this story was unique in that it portrayed a character with extraordinary mental capabilities who embarked on a worldwide adventure to find others with similar capabilities in order to combat terrorists. I highly recommend this book. J. Worthington
The mindreacher concept is novel and refreshing. The action doesn’t stop. Justine Wittich, Editor
It was difficult to differentiate between fact and fiction. A good read. Vicki Whitacre, M.D. Beta Reader
This novel reads like a blend of Clive Cussler and Indiana Jones. Full of excitement! Sandy Wickersham McWhorter, Editor
I was fascinated to learn so much about the human mind. I didn’t want it to end. Kathy Brantley, Reader
Once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down. Catherine Frompovich, Editor
You are like Michael Crichton reborn! J. Kern, Reader
Did Mary know what was going to happen to her? Yes, she did know! All of Galilee knew why Mary was born by the time she was one year old. God named, blessed, and ordained Mary to be the mother of Jesus, Immanuel, before her conception.
This biographical data about Mary was obtained from ancient scriptures. Written as a historical narrative, MARY KNEW is filled with information about angels, miracles and fulfilled prophecies that occurred within the holy family.
It includes biographical information about Mary’s parents, her birth and first three years of being secluded in her parent’s home with her diet and restrictions governed by God. At age three, she was taken to the Jerusalem Temple where she lived over a decade and was attended daily by angels. The difficulties of her parents, Anna and Joachim, are described, along with the phenomenal and beautiful birth of a God, Jesus Christ, Savior of the world. Her story remained popular because it is filled with angels, miracles and fulfillment of ancient prophecies.
The primary scriptures about Mary were written by James, the youngest son of Joseph and stepbrother of Lord Jesus. James lived in his father’s home and accompanied Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem along with two of his brothers. He was an eye witness during Mary’s pregnancy and the events surrounding the virgin birth of Jesus, Immanuel.
James and his scribes write Mary’s story. James left a signed written document verifying his testimony. The primary book he authored was the Protevangelion, a historical account of the Virgin Mary and the birth of Christ. A copy of his testimony is below.
SIGNED TESTIMONY OF JAMES: “I , James, wrote this History in Jerusalem; and when the disturbance was, I retired into a desert place until the death of Herod. And the disturbance ceased at Jerusalem. That which remains is, that I glorify God that he hath given me such wisdom to write unto you who are spiritual, and who love God; to whom there be glory and dominion for ever and ever, Amen.”
James became a chief Apostle and Jerusalem’s first Bishop of the Christians. His written testimony and other scriptures about Mary and Jesus Christ were used in the early Christian churches for hundreds of years.
Comments about MARY KNEW-A Biography of Mary from Ancient Scriptures
“Oh, friends and readers—this really is the most enchanting book I read to date this year; I hope you go out and get your own copy if you’ve not already done so. Definitely 5 stars!” Carmen Baca
“Irene Baron has put together a document that once I started reading, I could not put down! The story of Mary is written showing great research and clarity. I highly recommend this book to all that seek the life and history of Mary. It is a great book that I will make part of my Biblical reference for future use. Very well done!
David V. Wright II
“Irene Baron has produced a very accessible for all accounts of the life of Mary. It is fascinating and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I could recommend it for Christians young and old, as well as those exploring the faith and those who just want to know more about the historical figure of Mary.” Julia Wilson
“Irene Baron does something I didn’t imagine could happen, she introduced me to characters and events in the life of Mary and Christ that I had never heard of. And she backs it up with some very impressive references. This is a book that makes you wonder about the life of one of the most well-known individuals in Christian history, the mother of Jesus Christ. It’s written in a very lovely, simple style that reads like fiction (with tons of accurate historical and Biblical references). For believers and non-believers, this book is well worth the time to read it. It never hurts to learn something new.” Steve Carr
“I so enjoyed my book. I reread it often. Thank you so very much.
“I learned much about Mary I never knew. Mary Knew is a beautiful book and a good read. Very impressive.”

Drew’s charmed life is soon shattered by devastating news, causing him to go on a ten-year transcontinental journey of self-discovery, during which he explores the nature of God and Man, the divine inspiration for many of New York’s landmarks and artistic treasures, and the relationship between the found and the lost souls passing on the street.

Mason Metcalf, vice president of the Knights of Chaos Motorcycle Club is a very bad man. His willingness to do anything for the club, his organizational genius and attention to detail having engineered a meteoric rise to power second only to the president, his club counts heavily on his skill and ruthlessness. After a brief and vicious gunfight, like the prize in a box of Cracker Jacks, the Knights pull a frantic and badly bruised girl out of a cage in the back of the SUV belonging to the dead corono of their erstwhile trading partners—spoils of war.

Somewhere on the high-functioning end of the spectrum, Cleone, a savant and polymath, with an eidetic memory, a conveniently accommodating conscience, and old money is transported into the desert for the hand-off. Witnessing an illicit transaction that goes badly wrong, she falls into the hands of the Knights of Chaos Motorcycle Club.

Garenth had been awakened to retrieve an ancient artifact that was crucial to his well-being. He had few memories of what his life had been like when he had been a man. What memories that were left were filled with blood and excruciating pain.
That part of him was over now. The talisman had been taken from its sacred burial place, and it had to be returned as quickly as possible. It was up to him to follow through with his mission so he could return to another thousand years of sleep.
Brielle Van de Camp knew an extraordinary find when she saw it. The small clay figure was the key to a potentially earth‑shattering revelation about a previously unknown time in man’s ancestry. She would bet her life on it.
Unfortunately, others had gotten wind of the talisman, and they were equally determined to claim its promise for themselves. If Brielle wasn’t willing to part with the figurine, they had no compunction about prying it from her dead fingers.
They never counted on having to face the guardian of the statuette, who turned out to be more than a creature of mythology.
