Primordium is Now Available via!


The wait is over! Mario's latest work of fiction, Primordium, was published on April 2nd, 2018, and is now available for purchase in paperback and Kindle format. The story, which is a finalist for the 2017 Dante Rossetti Book Awards, follows seventeen-year-old Noah Bolton.

Noah's job at the biotech giant, Pridapt Incorporated, has not only earned him a college scholarship and the admiration of his peers, it has also gained him the eye of Zoe Halpern, the most popular girl at school.

But, behind the perks, Noah discovers a disturbing pattern of secrecy. There is a cover-up of side-effects from the company’s latest miracle drug, and hidden research in the restricted East Wing laboratory, where something monstrous crawls in the dark. Will Noah simply look the other way, or will he risk his status, his future, and even his life to bring the truth to light?

One reader shares:

Primordium is an easy yet intellectual read that I would highly recommend to readers of all ages. Every chapter left me hungry for more. The author’s medical background is woven seamlessly into the story, making it a science-fiction in the truest sense of the phrase—where real concepts are explored and manipulated to create totally believable fantasies. Primordium threw me into a world that’s familiar yet filled with fascinating things I’ve never seen before—from monsters to medical miracles.
