Gradon Napoleon awoke this morning, dreaming of a man named Raffaele Donat. He was an innocent and a dreamer; a revolutionary in all but action. He carried few burdens, but he yearned for brotherhood and a sense of belonging. His family knew his desires, knew how removed he was from the fold, and the discord that could threaten to unravel well-laid plans if nothing was done to correct this wayward son.

Gradon rose, dreaming the life of a man named Raffaele. The images were with him still: a cursed heritage; a stained soul; a child of dark origins and bright vision. Forever haunted by the past, and hunted into the future, he had thought. Soon, at least, the hunters—like those out of Interpol and the States—would have to find other reasons than rogue blood to set their mark. Soon, both parties would be accounted the same.

It was time. Almost two hundred years had it been? The end of life and love? For Raffaele, at least, he considered. For Gradon, it was time to meet his lover, take her into his arms, and change her life forever. And after that, the world and all its hunters would have to follow, or remain mortal enemies.

Life can change in a flash. The flash is defined by choice. All change is a choice.

But no one chooses the family they’re born into.

Nineteenth century Italy. The tale begins here in a land bound for war, and a family of noble inheritors who are troubled with the choice of extending the family line. This choice will live on to influence events one hundred seventy years in the future.

Early twenty-first century Baltimore. Six world-weary individuals, separated by less than they know, do battle with the daily lives they lead. But events set into motion long ago will bring these disparate souls together to form a family unlike any other.

Herein lies a story of heroic tragedy. An epic romance set against the backdrop of modern society. Join an ensemble cast on a journey of self-examination in a world where reality is more fluid than believed, where all magic is thought to be science, and the worst that can happen to us is more under our own control than we realize.

At 120,000+ words, and four years in the making, this is a very human science-fiction novel with touches of mystery, history, horror, and heroism combined. The story is written such that any page—any triplet of alliterative phrasing—might be a clue to the reader about something in the story. Once finished, the reader ought to want to start again. Though a few fantastic elements are evident in the telling, this story’s approach is to be as grounded and cinematically pleasing on the page as a Christopher Nolan film is on the screen.

And if you enjoyed Netflix's Stranger Things this summer, this might be right up your alley!
