From the Author
Return of the Light is the first book in The 'Ru Lexicon trilogy, the story of a group of immortals sworn to protect mankind from the demons of the Underworld. The trilogy is based on the Sumerian myth of the goddess Inanna, and each book will focus on one of the three main characters in the series. The first book focuses on Raphael's story, the second Elise's, and the third Rudolf's. I have also planned a series of short stories that will take place between the books.
I would characterize the series as a hybrid of urban and high fantasy. While the action takes place in current times and cities, the world in which the 'Ru live is more medieval in its structure. Their codes, keeps, and sometimes even weapons have not changed in thousands of years, and the enemy they fight is older than man. It is a world steeped in its own traditions, and while it crosses paths with the modern world, much of it remains hidden from man and frozen in time.
