Celestials

By MegDonovan All Rights Reserved ©

Romance / Fantasy

Blurb

Since she's been 29, Rory Marquadt, has been crazy - at least she assumes that's what's happening. She's seeing winged creatures, hearing voices, and feeling like she's being followed. When Rory returns to her hometown in Alaska, she isn't prepared to find herself in the center of a battle between celestial beings. Both sides of the ethereal world are forcing her to choose one of them and no matter which she chooses, the human race is in epic danger. Meanwhile, she's trying not to fall for Jude, the enigma wrapped man who has sworn to protect her. Uncovering his history could be just as dangerous as facing off against celestial beings. The ethereal world isn't at all like us humans imagine; it's far scarier and much more political. Rory must choose a side, save the humans, and protect her heart against her protector, all before time counts down to her body tearing itself apart. Being 29 isn't at all what it's cracked up to be.

Prologue

The Certus had been awakened. She could feel it. They all could feel it.

That meant the Everto knew about it too. She must get to the Certus before them. The last victory had been the Everto’s and she would not let that happen again. The earth was full of chaos; one disaster after another and empathy for their fellow man severely lacking in humans. She would not let the Everto win again. She had waited long enough. The wait prolonged because of the Ego Captus.

The Ego Captus.

That had been unfortunate. Something that rarely occurred but sometimes could not be helped. Some people weren’t strong enough to handle what was inside of them.

It was also going to make the Certus harder to track. They couldn’t follow the essence from one body to the next. There was no clear indication where it would turn up.

The power that radiated from the Certus was strong. Perhaps this is the one they had talked about. The Prophecy that was to solve it all - the Certus that would save them from this constant war. As long as she could get the Certus to do what she wanted it to.

She looked at the serene blue sky. This time the victory would be hers. There would be no stopping her. Nothing would get in her way.

She just had one problem. A problem that had lingered on for centuries and centuries – the Incomitatus. Something she and the Everto thought would disappear but it only grew stronger every time the Certus appeared. She had to make certain they found the Certus before the Everto or the Incomitatus did. This time she would not lose to either of them.

The earth would not survive another generation of discord. Or confusion. That’s what the Incomitatus did. That could not happen again!

The air crackled around her and a lightning bolt shot from the sky. Another storm created from her anger.

She knew there would be more to come.
