Centuries have passed since civilization’s brush with apocalypse. The world’s greatest threats have all been silenced. There is no anger, no hatred, no war. There is only perfect peace—and fear. A terrible secret was closely guarded for centuries: every single soul walking the earth, though in appearance totally normal, is actually dead, long ago genetically stripped of true humanity. Nine years have gone by since an unlikely hero named Rom Sebastian first discovered that secret and consumed an ancient potion of blood to bring himself back to life. Surviving against impossible odds, Rom has gathered a secret faction of followers who have also taken the blood—the first Mortals in a world that is dead. But the Order has raised an elite army to hunt and crush the living, and division and betrayal threaten to destroy the Mortals from within. The final hope for humanity teeters on the brink of annihilation, and no one knows the path to survival. On the heels of Forbidden comes Mortal, the second novel in the Books of Mortals saga. Set in a terrifying, medieval future, where grim pageantry masks death, this tale of dark desires and staggering stakes peels back the layers of the heart for all who dare take the journey. The Books of Mortals are three novels, each of which stands on its own yet all are seamlessly woven into one epic thriller.

Summary

Summary

A New York Times bestseller

Centuries have passed since civilization’s brush with apocalypse. The world’s greatest threats have all been silenced. There is no anger, no hatred, no war. There is only perfect peace—and fear. A terrible secret was closely guarded for centuries: every single soul walking the earth, though in appearance totally normal, is actually dead, long ago genetically stripped of true humanity.

Nine years have gone by since an unlikely hero named Rom Sebastian first discovered that secret and consumed an ancient potion of blood to bring himself back to life. Surviving against impossible odds, Rom has gathered a secret faction of followers who have also taken the blood—the first Mortals in a world that is dead.

But the Order has raised an elite army to hunt and crush the living, and division and betrayal threaten to destroy the Mortals from within. The final hope for humanity teeters on the brink of annihilation, and no one knows the path to survival.

On the heels of Forbidden comes Mortal, the second novel in the Books of Mortals saga. Set in a terrifying, medieval future, where grim pageantry masks death, this tale of dark desires and staggering stakes peels back the layers of the heart for all who dare take the journey.

The Books of Mortals are three novels, each of which stands on its own yet all are seamlessly woven into one epic thriller.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[An] edgy, suspenseful, winning follow-up.” Library Journal (starred review)
“The novel’s grand theme…is anchored in reality by a cast of strong characters and by the authors’ realistic handling of their fantastic story.” Booklist
“The asides and descriptions can be quite funny, and the book offers plenty of food for philosophizing concerning religion, states of consciousness, freedom, fate, and the will to power.” Kirkus Reviews
