YA conspiracy thriller. 

Michael Asher is almost an ordinary California teenager, except for his unexplainable ability to see a glimpse of a person’s thoughts through their eyes. After surviving an assassination attempt, he discovers that he is at the center of a worldwide conspiracy higher than any earthly power. A clandestine organization with authority over world leaders, celebrities, and the wealthy desperately wants him dead. Tumbling into a web of international secrets, Michael is forced to search for the identity of the puppet master and dig up the truth that humanity is not being told.

Interview with Kaleb Nation, author of Harken

What is your favorite scene or quote from Harken?
My favorite quote is "Coincidence is merely the puppeteers' curtain, hiding the hands that pull the world's strings." It captures the feel of HARKEN in one line. Maybe there are things happening in our world that we don't know about, and a lot of what we think is just coincidental is actually orchestrated by others. 

Describe Michael Asher in 3 words?

Overconfident. Over-curious. Over-obsessed-with-cool-cars.
(adding the dashes makes it count as one word)

What is something that people would be surprised to know about you?
I can only write after 5PM and my best writing is done after midnight. When I'm working on a book, I usually write from 5PM - 2AM.

If you had to sum up Harken in a tweet, what would it say?
