Set in the near future, Split Symmetry is the story of what happens when a hike in the notorious Gran Sasso mountain range in central Italy descends into chaos on the same night that scientists decide to work on a clandestine experiment in a lab beneath the mountain. Dr Elena Lewis must work around the clock to find members of her group who have become lost on the mountain, but just as she is close to finding them, the region is rocked by one of the worst earthquakes central Italy has ever known.
This multi-layered metaphysical adventure is the second instalment of the Borderliners trilogy, which can also be read as a stand-alone story.
Is this novel for you?
In beta-reading I found that readers most likely to love this novel tended to be eclectic in their tastes, but many of them told me they liked layered novels with twists such as Michel Faber’s ‘Under the Skin’, Murakami’s IQ84 and Audrey Niffenegger’s ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife’. Looking at other forms of media, it could also be suitable for fans of TV hit series’ Lost or Fringe. If you like these books and TV shows, then you might also like Split Symmetry.

Praise for Split Symmetry
‘Not just for speculative fiction enthusiasts, this book is also for purveyors of thrillers, for readers of romance, as well as more serious readers who wish to delve deeper into the hidden meanings of life: what it is to survive and endure, what defines us, how it is to be ruled by fear, to be a slave to the terror of nature, what is feels like to love.’ Review from Awais Khan
‘I was delighted to once again meet Elena (from Borderliners). A group of amateur climbers, assembled by Elena are in Italy, they get inadvertently in the way of a scientific expedition running an experiment in distorting time. All is not as it appears, or will appear, or as it has already appeared.’ Review from Cliona Hammond.
