Peace: The Pursuit Of Happiness
His extraordinary debut, Peace: The Pursuit of Happiness, is being hailed as “genre-bending horror supernatural thriller” as well as “graceful [and] horrific”. Misan Akuya invites readers into an even darker age—one of temptation and corruption, of war in heaven, and of hell on earth… The year is 2020. Richard Anders, a 26 year old psychologist in Los Angeles, fresh out of graduate school begins to deal with a tough patient, a young woman who has a great deal of trauma, and his colleague, a 32 year old woman who is already a celebrated psychologist. All the while a turn of events, being infected by a female “Demon.” In Tokyo Japan, Sara Takimoto and her friends are in their senior year of high school. Already dealing with her best friend, Hina, revealing to her that she will not be joining her at U.L.C.A in the fall, witnesses a bus driver accidentally running over and killing a Demon. Finding out that he had killed a human being in the same fashion years prior leaves Sara conflicted. And in Lima Peru, Fiorella Sanchez, a 22-year-old single mother of fraternal twins is visited by the son of a rich man that her mother was involved with. Searching for the truth behind the Demons, Fiorella discovers that she herself is not as human as she has believed herself to be. 2020 will forever be known as the year of the Demon.
