In the 21st century, corporations rule the world, science is big business and governments no longer exist. A war breaks out between two races…and one of them isn’t human....

Stripped from the headlines of today's news, Cimmerian City is a novel spanning 10 years.

Greed can turn a good man’s heart to stone. This is especially true in the age of commerce and large corporations. No new pill can be taken without a laundry list of side effects that the patient may have to endure. But what if the side effects are more dangerous than the pills are helpful? What if the side effect causes the patient to be immune from standard dangers, such as firearms, the climate, etc., but causes them to change into otherworldly beings?

It is seen through the eyes of a young woman named Raven Blackheart. It is a future where corporations rule the world and political parties have been dismissed.

An Earth that is recovering from a global war that has divided two races: Humans and Dracins, quick, tough skinned creatures that are children of the side effects from 20th century pharmaceuticals. Raven awakens in this world as a product of both races and nurtured by the vice president of the main corporation in the world as a symbol of the union of races. With her help, Vice President Tyler Deamond’s corporation can take both beings off Earth, which is quickly becoming a waste planet, and to a new terraformed planet. But, as Raven learns, nothing is as it seems, especially concerning humans.

Professional Reviews

Wild Child Publishing
"Cimmerian City by Rae Lindley is the type of book that in this reviewer's wide experience, is all too rare: an utterly unstoppable tale which latches on to the reader from the first sentences, then sets a death-defying pace through realms known and unknown, flying the reader through plot twists and turns, character delineations, and
theme. Highly recommended is this book, because I literally could not put it aside until completed; and immediately accorded it an important spot on my Keeper Shelf!"

RAWSISTAZ™ Reviewers
"CIMMERIAN CITY by Rae Lindley is very appropriate for a world where corporations and pharmaceutical companies seem to be pushing for control of governments and the world, for money...

As Raven Blackheart travels through Los Angeles, we can feel both sympathy and empathy for her plight. It seems she is in a no-win situation. It is also frightening because it is so close to home. CIMMERIAN CITY ends leaving a taste for more of this new world information."

'Cocktail Reviews'
"Cimmerian City shows us a frightening outcome to current fears of crises on every front. From global warming and rampant pollution, to race wars and violence, from global control of the world's economy by a handful of corporations, to controversial medical experimentation for profits for a drug-dependent society. Here is the extreme vision that Cimmerian City give us of the haves and the have-nots. The few people who can afford to protect themselves from this severally damaged world and those who are subject to the
uncertainty of daily life."
