The Exceptionals: A thriller series!
In 2008 I realized a long time dream and the first two books in my series The Exceptionals were published by Whiskey Creek Press. Created with Jerry Kokich in 1998 the world of the Exceptionals is a dark one but with a ray of light. I wrote the first from scripts Jerry and I had written and the next two solo with the fourth in the works...
Here is the trailer for the book//series we shot in 1999...
The Near Tomorrow World of the Exceptionals:
It was not a world anyone wanted to live in except the terrorists. Their desperation to make the rest of the world conforms to their view of the universe as far back at the 1980s had changed the world. It was a slow change at first, and then like a dam that burst, the violence and irrationality of their vision was imposed on the rest of the world.
It was from this chaos and lawlessness that a terrified world came to embrace the concept of the Exceptionals: extraterritorial bio-enhanced bounty hunters, who could go anywhere, do almost anything in the name of law. Their lives were always at risk from the narco terrorists, tyrants and hate mongers of this not-so-brave new world. TheUnited States Government and the United Nations mandated that their identities became a closely guarded secret.
This was a review of the first book (which was a best seller for Whiskey Creek Press):
"The Exceptionals is a great book and the start of what I hope to be a long series in the science fiction/thriller suspense genre. The authors' fictional world set in the mid 21st century is so vivid and compelling you find yourself believing that this reality of the world actually exists. Teel James Glenn and Jerry Kokich have created a great fictional world for their Exceptionals and I for one can't wait to return. If you like your suspenseful thrillers with a healthy dose of science fiction thrown in, The Exceptionals is the one for you."--A Simply Romance Reviews Outstanding Read!
