Read full description of the books:Most anthropologists believe eons ago there were over fourteen species of human. They also believe only one of those species survived beyond the ice age. They are wrong. Three species of human have endured and now live in modern society. Homo angelus have wings. Homo daemonis have horns and a tail. Homo sapiens have no idea the other two exist. Sarah Connelly's job is to ensure it stays that way.
Sarah is a half-daemon rookie agent for the international daemon and angel police force, SITO. She has been assigned to protect an orphaned, half-angel child, Kels. The child has been receiving attention from an extreme religious group, the Anakites, who are rumored to believe their divine cause is to cleanse the earth of all impure human species, meaning all non-angels.
All hell breaks loose when an angel is caught stalking Kels. SITO arrests the angel, Aaron, who claims he was only watching over the child. Aaron warns Sarah that Kels is in serious danger from the Anakites and that only he knows how to protect the child. Sarah decides to trust Aaron, which means going against orders from her superiors at SITO. This puts her deep in Anakite territory without backup, a dangerous place to be for a rookie half-daemon agent. There she uncovers the Anakites' plot to make a brutal example of the hybrid child, and if she was wrong to trust Aaron, she herself will meet a similar fate, a fate that would frighten even the most hardened hero.
Read information about the authorMary specializes in science fiction and fantasy, although she does appreciate a wide breadth of the literary canon. She started reading at an early age, Peter Pan, The World of Pooh, Laura Ingalls, Alice In Wonderland, The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Enchanted Forest were among her favorites. Her love of reading continued, as she earned her B.S. in biology from the University of California San Diego, so it was a natural progression to start writing during her off time. She was a veterinarian’s assistant, then a field biologist, and then a zookeeper at the San Francisco Zoo, while she wrote her first novel. But her passion for writing and books caused her to veer off her original path and drew her to publishing. She graduated from Mills College, Oakland with a MFA in Creative Writing and English, and is currently a Literary Agent at Kimberley Cameron & Associates, as well as a published author, and occasional writing coach for She Writes Press and Warner Coaching*. She also is a member of the writing group Relentless Writers, which blogs about everything from writing tips to publishing tips to commiserating authorial frustrations. Above all she continues to read, both her favorite authors/books: Anne McCaffrey, Don Quixote, Robin McKinley, Pride & Prejudice, Patricia A. McKillip, The Count of Monte Cristo, Toni Morrison, Blood Meridian, Charlotte Bronte, The Master & Margarita, Herman Hesse, Cosmic Banditos, John Steinbeck, and also debut/popular/indie fiction.
