More About the Author
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.
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.

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.
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.Read more ›
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!

This was one heck of a thriller. It grabs you right at the start and keeps you in it's grip right until the end.
A thriller right up there with Stephen King. Quite a read!
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!Published 13 months ago by Phyllis Wagner
From start to finish, this book keeps you yearning for more. The authors description of the scenes is second to none. Read morePublished 15 months ago by curtis stoneking
