Doubt is Book 1 of the Among Us Trilogy. Among Us is a book series which delves into the world of the supernatural and how it intersects with the everyday lives of seemingly ordinary young people as catastrophic events on earth lead to the end of times. Among Us weaves the theme of a young man and woman, who while not fully understanding their ‘abilities’, are drawn together in their desire to find out the truth about the world they live in which is similar to themes used in J.J. Abrams’ TV shows Fringe and Lost.
Here’s what readers had to say…
…This novel contains a mixture of interesting genres, including fantasy, thriller, adventure, mystery and even romance. The letter in the beginning written to “truth seekers” was a nice touch; a good way to foreshadow what is about to happen.
As a big fan of the show Fringe, this book appealed to me tremendously. The writing was well done, and the way the “supernatural” forces were introduced was great. The characters, primarily Harry and Cristal, were developed and built up very well, and had enough detail about their lives for us readers to understand them as people, not just characters. Genuinely looking forward to read the rest of the series when it comes out!”- Melissa Greenberg, Inkspand reviewer

Doubt is a must-read novel that has depth and substance mashed up with fringe science. If you read no other book this year, this is the one to read! – Bryan Miller, author of Kyrathaba Rising
OMGosh! I just finished reading “Doubt”… INCREDIBLE! I couldn’t put it down. Well developed characters with thoroughly explained relationships. Great background info – adds so much to the reader knowing what is going on at all times. Cristal is a great lead. She is strong, smart, beautiful – a brilliant package. The twists and turns and the espionage involving the gamers and the GN kept me on the edge of my seat. The paranormal aspect was something I wasn’t expecting, but was pleased with. The flow/pace was great. The writing was smooth and there were enough ups and downs to keep a reader interested. I’m not sure what to expect next, but know that I can’t wait to read more!” – Lisa W., GoodReads member reviewer
