Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00039]

 

Olivia Black does not feel safe. Nightmares plague her sleep and haunt her days. If she has to endure one more minute stuck in a safe house in rainy Portland, she’s going to lose it. When Mike Palmer sneaks off to find her sister Kaylee without her, it’s the last straw. She has to do something.

Then Palmer’s hackers find the Dome on a satellite feed: dark, abandoned and smack in the middle of the Oregon desert three hundred miles from where it started. If they can reach it before anyone else, they can crack the computer systems and access every piece of information on PSS the CAMFers and The Hold have ever collected.

But in order to do that, Olivia must face her fears in a race against all the forces that have ever pitted themselves against her. She must unravel decades of deceit to reveal the true origins of Psyche Sans Soma to the world at last.

 

GHOST HAND, BOOK ONE of THE PSS CHRONICLES

Seventeen-year-old Olivia Black has a rare birth defect known as Psyche Sans Soma, or PSS. Instead of a right hand made of flesh and blood, she was born with a hand made of ethereal energy.

How does Olivia handle being the girl with the ghost hand? Well, she’s a little bit morbid and a whole lot snarky.

Her mother thinks her obsession with death, black clothing, and the local cemetery is a bid for attention. But when Marcus, the new guy in Olivia’s calculus class, stares at her like she’s a freak, Olivia doesn’t like it. And when her hand goes rogue, doing things she never imagined possible, Olivia finds herself running for her life with Marcus from a group of men bent on taking the power of her hand for their own nefarious purposes.

GHOST HOLD, BOOK TWO of THE PSS CHRONICLES

ripleypatton_ghosthold_ebook_final

Olivia Black is back. 

Only this time she’s not the one in need of rescue. 

Samantha James, rich, popular, and an award-winning composer at age seventeen, is the next target on the CAMFers’ list. In order to convince Samantha to come with them, Olivia and Passion must pose as cousins, blend into the most affluent high school in Indianapolis, and infiltrate a mysterious cult known as The Hold. 

Olivia doesn’t expect it to be easy, even with the PSS guys backing them up. But what she discovers over the course of the mission will call into question everything she ever believed about herself, her family, and especially about Marcus, the guy she is undoubtedly falling in love with.

Published September 2013 by Ripley Patton. Available in e-book and paperback.

GHOST HEART, BOOK THREE of THE PSS CHRONICLES

In the aftermath of a brutal tragedy, Jason and Passion are on the run. Marcus is lost beyond reach, and The Hold is in shambles. If that weren’t enough, Olivia Black has been taken by the CAMFers to be used as Dr. Fineman’s personal lab rat in his merciless quest to uncover the mysteries of Psyche Sans Soma once and for all. But only if he can break her.

They are scattered.
They are devastated.
They are ruined. 

Their only hope is Olivia’s stubborn determination to thwart her captors and unlock the secrets of her ghost hand before Dr. Fineman can. Will she finally find the strength within herself to embrace the full power of her PSS?

And will it even matter if Marcus has already betrayed her?

MANO FANTAMSA, Crónicas Del Pss 1, (Spanish Edition 2015)

ripleypatton_manofantasma_ebook_final

Olivia Black tiene diecisiete años y una rara malformación congénita conocida como Psique Sans Soma, o PSS. En vez de una mano derecha de carne y hueso, nació con una mano hecha de pura energía.

¿Cómo lleva Olivia el ser “la chica de la mano fantasma”? Bueno, ella es un poco siniestra y bastante sarcástica.

Su madre piensa que su obsesión por la muerte, la ropa negra y el cementerio de su ciudad son solo cosas para llamar la atención; pero cuando Marcus, el nuevo chico en la clase de matemáticas de Olivia, se le queda mirando como si fuese un bicho raro, a ella no le gusta nada. Y cuando su mano se rebela y empieza a hacer cosas que ella nunca creyó posibles, Olivia se ve obligada a escapar junto a Marcus para salvar su vida de un grupo de hombres dispuestos a utilizar el poder de su mano para sus propios y perversos propósitos. Olivia Black acaba de empezar a comprender el enorme poder del que dispone.

  • Nathan:

    Hello Ripley,

    I just finished reading Ghost Hand, I downloaded the book because it was free on Kobo, and I really enjoyed it. I’m going to read Ghost Hold right now and hope that it is as good as Ghost Hand.
    English is not my mother tounge, but I really enjoyed it.

    Keep up the good work!
    I’ll also try to write a review 🙂

  • Ripley:

    Nathan, so glad you enjoyed the free read and are on to book two. And thanks for stopping by to comment. I’m vigorously working on book three, Ghost Heart, now and the cover is being designed this week.

  • Ripley:

    Gregory, I think if Olivia had PSS and The Force, she’d be nearly unstoppable 🙂

  • nathan:

    Hi, its me again, just finished book 2 and can’t wait for book three now :o, i want to know what happed to Marcus now, and to Olivia’s mom … These CAMFers are real ***** :s

  • hope blair:

    I just finished ghost hold and would like to know when the next book is going to come out and the CAMFers are
    freaking idiots (the only reason I’m not cursing is cause I’m 11)

  • Ripley:

    Hope, Ghost Heart, book three of the PSS Chronicles is coming out August 2014 in e-book and paperback. I’m so glad you’re enjoying the series and those CAMFers make me want to cuss too.

  • hope:

    OMG I read divergent and saw the movie and I got thinking that the PSS Chronicles would masks an AWESOME movie. Do you think it would be possible

  • hope:

    Is Marcus really a CAMFer or is that just a lie

  • katelyn:

    is ghost heart the last book or is there going to be more

  • Ripley:

    Katelyn, there will be one more book in the series after Ghost Heart 🙂 I haven’t announced the title yet, but the book should be out next year, so be sure to sign up for my newsletter for info about it.

  • Ripley:

    Hope, what does your heart tell you?

  • Ripley:

    Hope, I can see my books becoming movies for sure. Thanks for thinking its a great idea.

  • hope:

    I think that Marcus is not a CAMFer but the CAMFers are just saying he is to mess with Olivia and Marcuss sister is dead and that fotege is an old security tape

  • Shannon:

    Just curious when book 3 will be released? My daughter loves this series and is dying for the next one. 🙂

  • Ripley:

    Shannon, Ghost Heart will be released on October 14th in e-book and paperback through Amazon, B&N, and in local bookstores throughout Portland. I’m so glad your daughter is enjoying the series so much. Thanks for letting me know.

  • Gregory:

    One question. If Psyche San Soma is the effect of Amputees dealing with Ghost limbs, Why then are all the characters in all three books Born without their PSS appendages? Seems to me these are all Birth defects, rather than amputations. Do actual Amputees in these books regain PSS limbs?

    Was glad to meet you at Jan’s Paperbacks. discovered one thing. after you have your kobo signed, put some protection on it. or the signatures will wear off.

  • Ripley:

    Gregory, in the books PSS is a birth defect, not a result of amputation. The idea was based on the real phenomenon of Phantom Limb Syndrome, but I changed it up and made it a paranormal birth defect in my world. As for amputees regaining PSS limbs, there is no evidence of that in the books, so far 🙂

  • Kelly Hood:

    I’m enthralled with your PSS Chronicles series, simply captivated. I’m anxious for the release of the fourth book. I wish I could read it now!

    I personally don’t consider PSS a birth defect though. 😉 I see it as a gift, an evolutionary gift as described in your series. What an exciting gift to have! Please keep us informed of any updates about the release date, etc.

    Anxiously awaiting the next installment of this addictive series,
    Your friend,
    Kelly

  • Ripley:

    Kelly, thanks so much for you kind comments and for letting me know how much you’ve enjoyed the series. Be sure to sign up for my e-newsletter to be kept up-to-date.

    And as far as your theory about PSS, all will be revealed (well, mostly) in the fourth and final book of the series, Ghost Hope, to be released this fall (2015).
