Six gods of the darker powers hold back the evil that seeks to consume humanity. Six gods that gave up their lives, their loves and all but their most rudimentary powers in service to a mother goddess charged with keeping those that would harm the world at bay. Theirs is a lonely existence, as they fight and search for the one thing that will make them whole again.
A Keeper, the woman that becomes his other half, the key to his returning powers, and his sanity. Keepers are in possession of relics, and each man seeks to find his one---woman and relic.
But The gods aren't the only ones searching for the Keepers. Evil has their minions on earth, and will stop at nothing to possess the relics, to stop the gods from becoming powerful once more, and to open the gates to the nether realms to bring forth those that were promised this world eons ago.
But the Gods of Darkness, the Inferi Dii, will not let that happen. The Battle ground is New York City, and after ages of thinking his relic was lost to antiquity, one god starts a chain of events that will lead to absolution, or our demise.
SOMETHING DARKER (book one of the Inferii Dii)
The one thing Syrus Alcot, the God of Death Osiris in the Egyptian Pantheon, wants in all the worlds is the woman he loved and lost returned to him. When he gave up his powers, and freedom for a life of service he was promised her return. That was over one thousand years ago. A member of a team of dark gods charged with keeping humanity safe, he leads a loveless existence in New York City, searching for the one thing that could bring his wife back to him, a lapis scarab that was lost to him ages before.
Gwen Stapleton, a mild mannered librarian, is unaware that she holds the key to not only Syrus’ happiness, but her own. Seemingly stuck in a hopeless relationship with a man she doesn’t love, she has no idea that a chance meeting in Alphabet City will start a
landslide to her heart’s content. Because Gwen is the keeper of the scarab, and is everything Syrus has ever wanted… and hes not the only one.
An Ancient evil is waking, and its servants will stop at nothing to see it seize its rightful place as the new pantheon of earth. And in order for Syrus and his team to save the world, Gwen is going to have to accept him, and show that love does make all the difference.
