ABOUT THE BOOK AND THE SERIES:
LEGACY OF THE WATCHERS (the series)
A historical, speculative, science fiction adventure
Thousands of years ago something came out of the sky that changed the course of human history. Testimonies abound of these ‘angels’ and their hybrid offspring, the ‘Nephilim’
The Watchers were supposed to do just that: watch. But humankind proved far too tempting and they ‘fell’ to earth, taking wives and even producing children. But their children grew into unruly giants whose souls didn’t ascend like human souls when they die, but remained here on earth. These errant souls haunt the earth to this day. They are the ‘djinn,’ the ‘hidden ones,’ also known as ‘daeva’ and ‘demon.’ They have one purpose—to live. But to live they need bodies.
This chain of events has now reached the point where the djinn need more than just our bodies to survive. They must take back control of the earth, just as in the days when they ruled as gods.
The Hidden Ones (book one)
As CEO of her own thriving company, Nadia Adeire is flush with success, but a secret society dating back to the Essenes believes her to be one of the ancient djinn—the notorious demoness of Hebrew legend, Lilith. What’s more, they have reason to believe that she’s plotting a catastrophic attack on the world.
Nadia is snatched from her ‘perfect’ life and caught in a maze between a present day disaster and the ancient legends of the djinn. The only way out is to retrace the steps of her deceased grandmother, Helene. The deeper Nadia delves into the past, the harder it will be for her to emerge unscathed. But it’s the only way to stop this impending disaster that was set in motion five thousand years ago!
AN EXTRA NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
Though THE HIDDEN ONES is a work of fiction, the historical content within the book is accurate. It is especially interesting to note how what happened so long ago in Mesopotamia still affects us today. Our religions, our wars, even our worst fears are irrevocably tied to that period in history. Perhaps the past hold keys to the present, buried among the many artifacts and writings like hidden treasures just waiting to be discovered.
