 About the Book 

Cynical by nature, Eden is a stressed-out paramedic who wishes for a normal existence, alongside her police officer husband, Riley. They recently moved to the bustling, progressive, southern city of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. As an affirmed Agnostic,MoreCynical by nature, Eden is a stressed-out paramedic who wishes for a normal existence, alongside her police officer husband, Riley. They recently moved to the bustling, progressive, southern city of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. As an affirmed Agnostic, she believes in the strength of humanity and scientific proof, but she has progressively become more jaded by the world around her. Escalating media reports regarding natural disasters of unbelievable proportions, mounting tensions in the worlds politics, and unexplained events occurring across the globe only make her cynicism grow stronger. Increasingly haunted by nightmares that begin to invade reality, Eden begins to encounter numerous, unsettling beings. Eden realizes normalcy may no longer be within reach, and is forced to question both morality and even her sanity. A strange man named Gabriel, who continues to reveal segments of her past that she has no recollection of, begins to drop hints, foreshadowing the End of Days. She and her husband quickly learn that the world, as they know it, will never be the same again. The tidings and revelations open a pathway to self-realization, the likes of which no one has ever seen. Eden soon embarks on a quest to protect humanity, find herself and correct an action that spawned both the human race and its subsequent separation from God. A rogue band of misfits and modern day messiahs join together and are forced to face both Heaven and Hell for the rights to Earth. DESCENSION is dark, gritty, humorous and sometimes tragic. It is not for the faint of heart and is completely unapologetic- put in a way that some readers might find either enlightening, or disturbing. Referred to as thought provoking to the end, it keeps you guessing and leaves you both emotionally exhausted and breathless, as only a true thrill ride can.
