Every five hundred years the phoenix dies.
Samiya, born-into-shadow, is soon to battle her born-into-light brother. Abandoned by their parents, neither wishes to play the preordained role of beast and hero. When their loved ones are taken hostage, they are forced to follow the path laid out in myth, culminating in a battle first fought six thousand years ago in ancient Cairo. A mythic clash where one defeats the other and both become gods.
To break free from their fates, Samiya and her brother must unravel a mystery twisted by cults, greed, and magic. But myth is a powerful force and failure to live up to it may not only destroy their lives but the lives of the ones they love most.
When the phoenix dies, the only certainty is flames.
‘Terrific! A successful blend of genres, complex and fascinating characters, and loads of suspense make 24 Bones a must-read.’ Nate Kenyon, author of The Reach, Prime, Bloodstone, and The Bone Factory.
Rights for 24 Bones have recently reverted to me due to the suspension of operations of the publisher. I will be editing it and developing a fancy new cover for re-release in 2012. Stay tuned!
