This could be dangerous. Truth is hard to trust. Emit would talk about the intrepid apprentice marching on through Chapel Perilous or some allegory for initiation into the Mystery Schools, but I don't have that kind of flair and you don't have that kind of time. "US6" is a highway that cuts across the heart of America. "US6" is a protein that cuts across the membrane of a cell and "US6" is us six, the fictional authors of this metaphysical thriller. We take turns telling our stories as heirs to an ancient and royal sibling rivalry between the Brotherhood and his Sisterhood of the Serpent. We swap intrigues for high crimes and weave our world behind a veil because, in front of it, we're six children enslaved by human traffickers. Although US6 is a paracosm---an imaginary world that we’ve built together to cope, we've unearthed certain esoteric principles that may well be our escape... and yours.
"...I've dug in to US6 and am already enjoying it immensely... the writing moves in such perfectly measured strides and is so... so... beefy..."
" In every sentence, or so it feels, there is something that pops--some surprising reference or turn of phrase. This is very assured stuff..."
"... I admire prose so supple and nimble and assured. The reading is very pleasurable and God knows informative..."
"It's a terrific book... this is astounding stuff and the work, obviously, of a brilliant mind."
