This first Pagan book is a story of ancient genetics, parallel evolution, hive minds and a clandestine bid to take over the human world.
Set in the present day, humanity is unwittingly approaching an apocalypse. The vast majority of people are unaware of the existence of a mysterious century’s old war broiling and bubbling beneath the surface. Within the world’s societies are ancient families pursuing a quest the exact nature of which has been lost even to them. Jean-Louis Rusch and Ruby Dean know only that an evil lurks at the heart of some of the most ordinary businesses around the world. There is talk of witches, ghosts and demons but with no real concept of their enemy they are referred to only as ‘them’.
Rusch is forced to accept what Ruby has tried to tell him: he was created for the purpose of defeating their enemy. And those who made him, expecting to control him, find that they made him too well.
