Product Description

About the Author

Curran Geist is the warped brain behind The Sity series. The inspiration for his books of extraterrestrial terror all began in the quaint town of Schwenksville, PA where he grew up. Curran often lived within books, and his vibrant imagination sucked him into nightmarish realms beyond the tiny town where he was raised. For much of his life, Curran Geist has dedicated himself toward human rights work. He was honored to serve in AmeriCorps and also to work for Museum of Tolerance New York, Simon Wiesenthal Center, where he lead trainings to combat bigotry and discrimination. Human rights issues are still very important to Curran. In writing The Sity and Only the Cold Remains, Curran has merged his love of science fiction and horror genres with his belief in tackling social injustices. His novels paint a dystopian and post-apocalyptic landscape that mirrors many modern day social issues, including: the exploitation of children, sexual slavery, and cruelty towards animals. Curran Geist is grateful to be a part of the At Hell's Gate horror anthology series. All proceeds from these books support The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, which helps wounded soldiers and their families. Curran currently lives in New Jersey with his wife and newborn daughter.

The Sity by Curran Geist is an outstanding futuristic scifi thriller oozing with style and menace. I was impressed with the writing style that gripped me from the awesome opening chapter that was intense to say the least. I love this book and will read more from this author.
Humans have become slaves in a carnival run by three vicious aliens. There is little chance of escape and hopes have died long ago. Life for humanity is harsh and gruesome until two find a way to strike back.
Carina and Victor form an unlikely bond and create an army to defeat the evil aliens but there is hardship and setbacks around every corner but defeat is not an option.
Awesome action sequences are spliced with more human emotions to create this brilliant scifi novel. The ending will leave the reader breathless and wanting more. Very highly recommended to all scifi fans.

'The Sity' is the dystopian sci-fi horror tale of Victor, a young man trapped in a kind of circus where humans are tortured for the amusement of aliens.

I was impressed by the world Geist has built for this novel - it was so unique and terrifying and multi-layered. The action was fast paced and the story was full of shocks and revelations. The characters were well developed and interesting. As the story went on it started to seem like there were a lot of characters to keep track of, but that is a minor complaint for such a richly developed alien world setting.

I enjoyed the fast pace and would definitely class this as a gripping page-turner. I look forward to the next instalment. A word of warning - this is a very dark read with a fair bit of torture going on and gory acts of revenge. I would recommend this to fans of dystopian sci-fi and sci-fi horror.

HASH(0x9746a1bc) out of 5 stars A thrilling read 4 Mar. 2013
By J.J - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is action packed and contains many unexpected plot twists and turns. There are so many layers to the characters and as the story unfolds, all the pieces begin to fit together in unexpected ways. If you like sci fi and nonstop action, you will love this book. You will continually re-evaluate your opinions of the characters as you read - the setting and characters are not what they first seem to be. Lots of surprising and thought provoking ideas. A thrilling read.

HASH(0x9746a210) out of 5 stars Page Turner! 29 May 2013
By Celticskye - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a must read for sci-fi fans. When I read it, I didn't realize it was the first in a series. When I finished the last page, I was desperate for more! It is well done and hard to put down. The author's villain is a delightfully despicable alien, and the world the author creates is fascinating. I look forward to the sequel!!

This was like nothing I've ever read before! Hands down one of the best novels in its genre. The world that Geist has created felt so real and the characters so unforgettable that you have no choice but to become obsessed with the Sity and its inhabitants. I cannot wait to read more!!!

HASH(0x998181a4) out of 5 stars As brilliant as Octavia E Butler...but needs editing 22 Oct. 2013
By Demelza Carlton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The story in this book is brilliant - an incredible start to the series. The action, the characters, the byplay between two races trying to cohabit, while the worst of one tortures the other...absolutely brilliant. It reminded me of some of Octavia E. Butler's work, especially her Xenogenesis series.

I'd happily give the story 4.5 stars.

Why I gave the book only 3 stars is because of how badly it needs editing. Multiple typos and grammatical mistakes on each page and characters who appear to talk to themselves for several paragraphs, though they're really conversing with someone else, made the story really hard to follow. I struggled with it in places and that really detracted from my enjoyment of an otherwise amazing ride.

I received a free copy of this book from the author for an honest, non-reciprocal review and that is one of the two reasons why I finished the book - the other reason is the compelling story line.

Following a comprehensive edit, I'd recommend this book and the rest of the series to anyone who likes post-apocalyptic or dystopian science fiction.

HASH(0x9746a648) out of 5 stars Loved it! 16 Dec. 2013
By Luvmeabook - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Sity is now my all time favorite Sci-Fi thriller!

The story behind “The Sity’ is not like anything you have ever read, and if you don’t get chills reading it, I don’t want to know what will. I dreamed about the creepy circus like scenes for days.

I loved Curran Geist’s writing and the world in which he created. I can’t wait to see what else he can come up with:)

This book is dark and a bit gory at times, so I wouldn’t recommend it to the squeamish. But if you enjoy a good Sci-Fi, thriller then definitely try this one.

5 Stars for one great book!
