banner 3.0

Title: Doppelgänger
Author: YL Parker
Release Date: 17 April 2017

Summary: 

Logline: Fighting and curing deadly strains of bacteria can be tougher that even when you have to time travel in order to do so. Kristin is a tireless physician who spends her day and nights diagnosing bacteria. The alluring twenty-three-year-old and her mate Peter, who holds the cure to these strains, are separated by time, making them almost impossible to remedy. Peter is an altruistic nomad, a doctor with a fantastic smile and gentle heart. He often falls through time landing at a point where he must create a cure to one deadly strain of bacteria that threatens to destroy all of mankind. When Sandy Island, lying in the South Pacific, began to sink into the ocean, engineers found a way to save it with a shift in time every few years. Its happy residents were content with their lives until elite scientist, Adam Grigori, searched the sea for a serum to thwart time & induce immortality. His find, harvested from sea animals, is the same serum Adam used on his daughter Dr. Kristin Grigori and medical assistant Dr. Peter Grayson. Kristin and Peter learn all too late that her father infused the serum with a Time Matrix which is illegal and introduces bacteria into the world.

Sandy Island The Calderans were sweet romantic people. They sat in their huts and played their banjos and harmonicas. The Sandy Island inhabitants entertained themselves with simple things. Until one day the water came and the island began to sink, the engineers built high-rises and tunnels to the ocean floor to stabilize the island. The land on the surface was uninhabitable. Fifty years would pass then another fifty years; the water would rise ever higher. It was the most beautiful place to live on Earth, and it frequently shifted in and out of time.  The last time the island was seen on Earth was in 1989. It disappeared from the maps of the land dwellers, and the people of Sandy Island were glad.  Sandy Island was made of cliffs, waterfalls, and grottos.  The surface was covered with waterfalls. The Calderans created skyscrapers out of rock and titanium that stretched to the rocks below the land. Some lived in high rises above the island that reached to the sky, while others lived in caves, caverns and grottos beneath the ground. The winds and the weather were harsh and unpredictable. It rained for days and weeks, when the Time Shift came, and they found themselves thrown into another land full of dry wastelands and barren deserts. It was only for a moment but it felt like a lifetime. The thirst hung in their mouths and they could not escape it. Some called it a curse, and tied them to this unique island nation. Some could not and would not leave. None ever tried to leave, for fear of what might happen. There were stories of those who tried to leave their island country. Dried and brittle, skeletons were found on nearby islands.  Their fate outside their world was the ever-yielding thirst. Scientists researched the animals of the sea to find a link that would help them weather the Time Shift that plagued their land and their people. The elite looked to the creatures of the island for immortality. The Nautalum invited the Calderans into their lives with open arms. Until one day, the cuddly race of sea creatures saw into the future how the Calderans would repay them. The Nautalum made the thirst part of them. So they would never forget. When the water came in full force, the Calderan scientists searched for another weapon, they devised one, time travel to control those fifty years, and they stood ready to use it.
