Birch lost his mother. Orson lost his childhood. Meredith lost her innocence. Jezebel lost it all. At a beachside motel, a quarreling couple are the unwitting mainsprings of a terror that will forever change mankind. Behind the walls of an isolated Arizona compound, an evil force is sprouting, creeping across the desert, and soaring toward California, where thousands will witness the first stages of a dark Order's earth-shattering vision. A ragtag group of would-be heroes are unified by the special gifts they share. Together, they aim to root out the one man who would raze all the world's armies with a single, fatal word. These are the characters of a novel whose themes are universal and whose subjects are taboo—fitting in or breaking the mold; free will versus destiny; good versus evil, and all the gray area in between. Dare yourself to read Taking Jezebel—a bold, harrowing, and dangerous debut.
