Introducing a breathtakingly inventive futuristic suspense novel about one woman who rebels against everything she is told to believe.

Emma wakes in a hospital, with no memory of what came before. Her husband, Declan, a powerful, seductive man, provides her with new memories, but her dreams contradict his stories, showing her a past life she can’t believe possible: memories of war, of a camp where girls are trained to be wives, of love for another man. Something inside her tells her not to speak of this, but she does not know why. She only knows she is at war with herself.

Suppressing those dreams during daylight hours, Emma lets Declan mold her into a happily married woman and begins to fall in love with him. But the day Noah stands before her, the line between her reality and dreams shatters.

In a future where women are a rare commodity, Emma fights for freedom but is held captive by the love of two men—one her husband, the other her worst enemy. If only she could remember which is which.

The first novel in a two-part series, Archetype heralds the arrival of a truly memorable character—and the talented author who created her.

Quotes & Awards

  • “M. D. Waters has given us that rare and wonderful action heroine who possesses both nerve and emotional depth. That rich characterization combined with an intricately crafted sci-fi mystery made Archetype an enthralling debut that I couldn’t put down.”

    Richelle Mead, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • Archetype is the literary equivalent of a big-screen blockbuster with its beautiful but deadly heroine, tragic love triangle and grim futuristic setting. The closest thing in print may be Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale.”

    Associated Press

  • “Readers looking for a great thriller with a strong female protagonist mixed with a hint of science fiction should pick this up immediately.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Emotional involvement powers this absorbing gothic thriller in science fiction trappings.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Waters has created a fascinating world in this well-plotted tale. A sequel, Prototype, is set to follow in less than a year. Definitely a writer to watch.”


  • A Publishers Weekly Pick of the Week, February 2014
