Holiday Gift Idea: Rumer and Qix Review and Giveaway

Rumer & Qix: The Story

Rumer, a petite 16 year old with a flair for fashion, loves zipping around the vast cityscape of 31st century Nanjing for her job as an apprentice reporter at the Global Quotidien. There’s one big problem, though. For some reason, the stories she’s assigned are always tedious and never interesting. To make matters worse, her insensitive boss wants her to report on the activities of Alfa, the same mega-conglomerate where her parents died mysteriously when she was eight.

Feeling frustrated, the rebellious Rumer escapes into the indie networks and, along with her pocket-sized side-kick, Qix, soon finds herself puzzling over a series of images of bizarre nature sightings posted by seemingly credible eye-witnesses. Ever since the world’s flora and fauna were replaced with Alfa’s Syncov™ replicas eons earlier, nature sightings like this have been routinely dismissed, but Rumer senses that something is different this time.

When ethereal voices relay a coded message confirming her hunch that something is terribly amiss, Rumer slips away with Qix on a globe-trotting quest for answers. Two colossal forces are about to square off for the final epic battle that will determine the fate of the planet. Who will triumph, Dr. BigCo, the ruthless CEO of Alfa bent on expanding his empire at all costs, or his nemesis, MoNa, the vulnerable matriarch of the cosmos? The fate of the world hangs in the balance and Rumer holds the key in a race against time.

  1. There was a point in which I wanted to be an archaeologist when I was a child, so I often dreamed of going deep into the jungle to find ancient treasure. I was always fascinated with Easter Island and still would like to go there.

  2. When my sister and I were kids we were always looking for "mysteries" ala Nancy Drew or Trixie Belden. We spent many a day exploring our country neighborhood. The best thing we ever found in an old house on our property was a stack of old Saturday Evening Post magazines--with the original Norman Rockwell covers. Fun memories!!

  3. I used to imagine driving cross country. My dad had an old van & I would sit in it for hours pretending to travel all over the US.
