Genesis Awry (#3)


The Scrolls of Cachaen. Seven pages of spell work, these are said to be the keys to controlling the forces of creation itself. Long believed to be little more than legend, the Scrolls have recently been rediscovered.

To possess them is forbidden, punishable by death.

Morgan Saint-Evanston has them. And he intends to keep them. No matter the consequences. It’s just as well, because he’s going to need all the firepower he can lay his hands on. As an outlaw with a price on his head, he’s got a twin sister aching to claim the legacy he carries as an immortal…and Megwyn has already vowed to move heaven and earth to take him down.

But that’s just the beginning of his trouble. In the mortal realm, an ex-lover with an agenda schemes to bring him back into the fold of the Kestrex Triad. With a new war brewing between human and cultic forces, Arch-Administrator Celeste Ravenelle wants her top assassin back where he belongs; at her side…and in her bed. She’ll pull every dirty trick in the book to get her way. Even blackmail. Morgan’s got secrets. And Celeste knows where the bodies are buried.

Trying to hold it all together is Julienne Blackthorne. Even as she struggles to navigate the rocky path of an immortal existence, she’s got to reign in Morgan’s self-destructive side before he reaches the critical point of burn out. At this point, insanity is not an option.

Last, but not least, there’s still the matter of the shape-shifting beast Xavier D’Shagre unleashed from the astral realm before his death. What is the damn thing, and where it is now? More importantly, how do they find it and send it back to nonexistence before it kills again?
