Danger lurks in the unknown and knowledge can kill. An out-of-this-world collision of new-adult sci-fi and edge of your seat thriller, Among Us by Kristina Rienzi features alien conspiracy and the clandestine government agency set out to silence truth seekers and believers.
When Marci Simon, conservative English professor by day and controversial extraterrestrial blogger by night, is given a classified document her life is thrown into chaos. When it becomes clear Marci knows too much, the Extraterrestrial Security Agency (ESA) sets out to destroy her and the secrets she’s sworn to share with the world.
Rienzi’s attention to detail will have readers of Among Us transported, not just to a fictional location of the author’s creation, but to New Jersey. Her writing style and descriptions are accurate, allowing readers to feel just as at-home to the surroundings as the characters she’s written. The action starts and doesn’t stop, and as the thought-provoking themes unfold Rienzi may just make a believer out of anyone.
Chosen as an Audible Editors Select Pick for April 2019 in the Thriller category, Among Us was also spotlighted by ACX in 2018 to help educate authors on choosing the best narrator for their audiobook. Directly from the control room with Audible Studios’ director, the audience was given a glimpse of the exciting process of choosing an audition script and building a profile to seek auditions on ACX, bringing the story to life. After the video was released, ACX held an open casting call to help Rienzi find the perfect narrator for Among Us. She chose narrator Lewis Arlt, a veteran actor for 35 years, performing on Broadway, regional theatre, and on television, as well as penning numerous scripts for daytime soaps, and has been both a Daytime Emmy and Writers Guild Award winner.
