Violet Storm: Modi #1 by Anna Soliveres

Several hundred years into the future, The Cleansing, known to some as the End of Days, forced the government to create Arks to shelter its people. When Earth became habitable again, new territories rose up from the ashes: Agria, the City of Light, and the Outer Boundaries. For a while, they lived in peace.

A brilliant surgeon known for his invention of Modi’s—the only cure for the deadly disease, vaincre—has gone rogue with his experiments, and the Monarchy is desperate to shut him down. That's where Aeva Storm comes in, a champion athlete with an ego to match. Aeva is the surgeon's secret weapon against the Monarchy. And they'll never know what hit them. After reconstructing her body to become a Modi unlike any he's ever created, Aeva is forced into a fight against all odds. She'll have to break loyalties, hurt family, and turn her back on newly awakened love. Thousands of lives hang in the balance in a battle that will set forth a new era.

Join Aeva on her quest to see whether she's got what it takes to go up against the most powerful humans ever created.

Violet Storm (Modi #1)


Q: As a self-proclaimed avid reader, what is the last book that you read and immensely enjoyed? 
A: I just got started on the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series and I must say, it’s good, real good!

Q: List three (3) movies that have inspired you as a writer.
A: Here are the three movies that inspired the world of Violet Storm: iRobot, The Road, and The Book of Eli. I drew quite a bit from these movies to create the VS world!

Q: Who is your favorite super hero?
A: I grew up loving X-Men, Smallville, and a slew of anime. I’d have to say Rogue is probably one of my favorite super heroes. She’s got this great ability to absorb others powers and their memories. Which is great if you’re battling other mutants. But it comes at such a personal cost: not being able to touch people without harming them. Unlike Superman and many other super heroes, her ability doesn’t give her much choice in pushing away people. She’s forced to in order to keep them safe from her. That’s the kind of character you can do so much with!

Q: Photography seems to be one of your passions. Share three (3) of your recent photos with us.
A: I’ve been obsessed with my kitten lately. He’s getting so big so fast! I’ve been trying to capture him in many stages. Here are some of my favorite photos.

Q: Through all of your traveling adventures, where is your favorite place to visit and why?
A: This is a tough one! Internationally, I’d say that my favorite place was Zurich. I spent quite a bit of time there and it was an amazing experience. Domestic, I’d have to say Chicago was a ton of fun!

Q: Describe the environment that best stimulates your personal creativity.
A: I’ve learned that being at home is where I am most able to tune out the world and focus solely on writing. When I’m out at cafe’s, even out on my balcony, I am overstimulated and can’t quite focus as well on my work.

Q: Exactly, how fast can you run? Yes, I’m calling you out on the cop story!
A: Haha! I used to be able to run 1 mile in under 7 minutes. My sprints (quarter miles) were even faster--I was always the fastest girl in the group. I wanted to be a cop back when I was in high school after having been a Police Cadet for almost two years. During boot camp, my Drill Sergeant said that I ran like a deer.

Q: Tell us about a few of your guilty pleasures.
A: I love getting massages. I get these bad knots on my neck and shoulders that only a deep tissue massage can work out. I like going to the gym at least three times a week to work off the stress built up by my full-time job. I like cider over beer, and will have wine with a meal. I love ice cream, but don’t have too terrible of a sweet tooth!

Q: Violet Storm is book one of the Modi series. Can you tell us anything about Modi #2?
A: If there’s anything I can say; it’s that there’s going to be a lot more world building. I want to take my imagination and the readers imagination to a whole new level. Clearly Modification is proving itself to be somewhat limitless. There are a lot of unanswered questions from book one, more secrets to discover, and a world still left to save. And let’s not forget what might happen between Karth, Ruven, and Aeva!

Q: If you could live in a world of dolls, what would it be like?
A: Great question. You’ll just have to read it in Snow Dolls! I’ve written this world out to be just the way I would imagine if dolls were fact and not fiction. The challenge so far is building a believable world in which we can fathom that such a practice (of Purification) exists! 


Anna Soliveres has always been a storyteller but it wasn’t until her early twenties when she began writing novel length works. The result was an enthusiasm to get better at the craft until her work could be shared with the world. Releasing in March 2014, VIOLET STORM is her debut novel. Anna is currently working on another young adult sci-fi series, titled SNOW DOLLS, set to release in late 2014.
