This chilling and imaginative novel explores a world, not too far hence, in which technology and the paranormal collide, with menacing results. The story begins with
Brad Harris, an ordinary political science major at university, who is stunned to learn that his grandfather is alive. Revived from the deep-freeze of cryonics at Chicago's Luyet Institute, James Harris wants to see his grandson, but Brad is less than eager for the meeting!
Angela is another cryonics patient at the Institute. Since her resurrection, she's bothered by what seem to be hallucinations. She learns that re-animation has sensitized her to the spirit world, imparting an ability to read the personal auras of those around her. A human aura fluctuates with many colors, rather like the Northern Lights- so why do so many people at the Institute have a solid, unchanging color surrounding them?
As some “patients” develop gruesome habits, and bizarre deaths start to occur, Angela's strange insight becomes a crucial key. Some of those returning to life aren't human, and were never meant to be.
Stasis is fascinating and horrible at the same time. It's filled with dangerous beings, disguised as people, and nerve-racking tension, as clues begin to fall into a terrifying pattern. If these malevolent entities have their way, the world of humanity will never again be safe.
