Book Description

SPRING, 1987:


Justine Knox and her fiancé, Alex Van Huss, exit a dark movie theater and quickly find themselves in the midst of a torrential, Indiana thunderstorm. Trapped outside in the elements, Alex leads Justine on a shortcut through a rundown apartment complex and into their worst nightmare...

As the two of them rush through the woods behind the apartment buildings, they come across David Hawkins—a distraught, out-of-his-mind drug addict—burying the bodies of his wife and her lover. Unfortunately for the two young lovers, David Hawkins takes out all of his hate and anger on Justine and Alex. After murdering Alex, David rapes Justine and leaves her for dead...

Shortly after the horrible incident in the woods, Justine learns that she is pregnant, and the only man that could possibly have impregnated her is the monster that raped her and killed her fiancé. With the support of her parents, Justine makes the difficult decision to have an abortion...

Unbeknownst to Justine, she would have given birth to twins...


SPRING, 2005:


Nearly twenty years later, with a new name and a family of her own, Adrienne Morgan (formerly Justine Knox) wants nothing more than to forget that fateful night eighteen years in the past. A chance encounter in the local grocery store will shatter all of that...

Is Adrienne losing her mind, as her loving husband and children suspect, or is she being haunted: stalked by fragments from her past long dead and buried?

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Randy Eberle's Gemini is a true page-turner. But unlike many page-turners, Gemini is well-written and richly detailed, an original and intelligent thriller with some unusual themes, unpredictable plot twists and a cast of vivid and memorable characters. I'd recommend the novel to readers of any genre looking for a great story; I know I'm looking forward to this author's next book."-Ed McGinnis, author of Night Train Express and The Blue Route

About the Author

In 1987, when big hair and parachute pants were the benchmark in primary education social status and before "grunge" music marred the face of Rock N' Roll music forever, Randy Eberle won a prize for a "book" he wrote (The Mystery of the Howling Cave; 20 pages, complete with God-awful illustrations and a laminated, construction-paper cover) for his third-grade creative writing class. Ever since, Eberle's passion for writing and telling stories has never left. Not long after, rummaging through a box of old paperbacks at his grandparents' house, Randy Eberle discovered a battered copy of the movie-tie-in edition of Stephen King's Firestarter. It was then that he quickly realized exactly what kinds of stories he wanted to tell; his Hardy Boys and Three Investigators books became moldering stacks on a make-shift bookshelf, never to be touched again (over the next several years, Mr. Eberle had to hide his new reading habits from his parents, but that's another story...). In the next three decades, Randy Eberle would go on to study all the masters of modern horror: Stephen King, John Saul, Clive Barker, Dean R. Koontz, Peter Straub, just to name a few. Randy Eberle resides in Indianapolis, Indiana. Gemini is his first novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like most in its genre August 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Like most in its genre, Genesis by Randy Eberle, is driven more by plot than character. Adrienne has a new name, a young family, and has moved to a different town. After years of struggle, and supported by her loving husband, she appears to be overcoming the traumatic effects and the aftermath of the violent attack she suffered in high school. Her hopes are shattered when ghosts appear, first in her dreams, and force her to revisit unresolved issues from her past. I was hooked after the first few pages.

Sometimes I could anticipate what gruesome event awaited characters and wanted to warn them away, but every time I became complacent and thought I knew where the story was headed, Eberle would blindside me. I was kept just enough off kilter to regret the times I temporarily had to set the book aside to attend to other things.

The author sets his scenes with meticulous precision which might occasionally seem tedious to some readers. For those like me, however, who like to visualize what we read in detail, most of his precise descriptions are very welcome.

Of the more than one hundred books I read every year, ten or so are the first attempts by new authors. Many of these I dismiss as not showing promise. Others, like Genesis, intrigue me enough to keep my eye out for future offerings. I give Eberle's first novel 4 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 / 4 stars debut novel! August 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
An ARC was provided to me by the author in exchange for an honest review

This is not my typical genre, but I was intrigued by the synopsis, and decided to read it. My typical reads usually have some type of romance theme to them, but vary in degrees of YA / NA / PNR / CR / dark reads, thriller reads etc. So being this book is more classified as suspense / thriller / horror may be why I didn't enjoy it as much other books I typically read.

What I did enjoy:

Randy does a nice job of bringing you into the story, introducing the characters, and snaring your attention from page 1. From the very first chapter I was wondering what was going to happen next, where the story was going to go, and even though from the synopsis I knew partly what would happen, it was still quite a shocker as the details played out. This book flowed throughout and was a quick read.

I connected with the main character Justine / Adrienne, I felt she was a really likeable character. She was relatable, you could feel her pain, her anguish, her fear, and you could sense her strength. I also liked her husband, Peter, although I did not connect with him as much. He sometimes seemed aloof and uncaring. I really liked Alex, her fiancé, who was unfortunately killed off in the beginning of the book. He felt warm and caring, (this is where parts of me with the romantic tendencies goes off to day dream).

Ian and Eli, or Angel and Demon, as I likened them, really were opposites in every way. Ian, beautiful, angel like, protector, loving, and Eli, disfigured / deformed, demon like, loathing, and full of hate. It was an age old epic battle of light and dark.

The suspense was there, and Randy will keep you guessing as to where and what will happen next.

Good book, overkill on the swear words- it took away from the character development by there being so much of it from too many characters. Very descriptive, good imagery!

This book was fantastic. I haven't read a good thriller in a while and this was the perfect book to reintroduce me to the genre. The story was really interesting and very original -- I think all thrillers have that moment where you want to yell "you moron, stay away from there" and this book had its share of those moments, but it never really felt predictable.

The author did a great job of developing a very engaging story. The characters were well developed and I found myself rooting for/against them many times. I definitely recommend this story...it's a great read overall!

5.0 out of 5 stars Like a freight train through a mountain of blood. September 29, 2014
By C.D.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Gemini takes me back to my days in school reading Stephen King and Clive Barker for the first time, when Horror was new and brutal and terrifying and made you squirm in your seat. These days, many horror authors shy away from the uncomfortable bits, but this author isn’t one of them. Randy Eberle writes like a freight train through a mountain of blood. He barrels through a scene with an almost psychotic glee, and it’s glorious to behold. Gemini hits hard, right in the throat, and it isn’t afraid to kick you when you’re down. You really have to experience this one for yourself. Gemini is a monster of a book.

In April of 2013, Randy Eberle published "Where Dying Flowers Lie", a short story made available in both trade paperback and kindle formats for a very limited time. Also included in this short publication was the first chapter of his debut novel, Gemini.

Gemini is available now in multiple formats, and is currently a best-seller in Occult Suspense.

Randy Eberle resides in Indianapolis, Indiana. Gemini is his first novel.
