HARBINGER FINAL Ebook cover May 2022

Fallen Messengers, Book 5

The wheels of Fate have started to turn…

When an unknown plague starts to decimate the Earth, Cassius Black and Morgan King soon realize they’re dealing with something not of the human world. As their allies gather in San Francisco to try and determine the cause of the contagion, unwelcome news reaches Morgan’s ears. The Dryad kingdom has come under attack by an unknown enemy.

Forced into making a difficult choice, Cassius and Morgan part ways to deal with both crises. But the battles in Ivory Peaks and on Earth end up costing the couple more than they could ever have imagined, bringing them face to face with powerful enemies from their past. On the edge of despair, Cassius finds hope in the arrival of an unexpected group of deities. Goddesses who are related to both Morgan and Victor Sloan by more than just Fate.

Cassius learns of the twisted threads of destiny that bind them all and discovers the latest peril they face is of Elios’s making. When he’s told by the Goddesses that the only way to end the God of Darkness’s deranged scheme is to find a legendary item lost to the tides of time, Cassius vows to stop at nothing to locate it, whatever the sacrifice.

Harbinger is the fifth novel in the gay urban fantasy romance series Fallen Messengers. If you like your paranormal adventures full of action, romance, magic, snark, and a host of steamy gods, angels, and demons, then you’re not going to want to miss this compulsive read!

Morgan’s heart slammed a rapid tempo against his ribs as Galliad’s words faded into heavy silence.

He was conscious the mage, and by default the Dryad royal family, would not be asking this of him unless they were truly desperate. He met Cassius’s anxious gaze and saw the answer he wished to deny in his beautiful eyes. The answer that had come unbidden to his own throat and that he was choking back, knowing instinctively that it would mean their separation.

“You have to go,” Cassius said quietly. His knuckles whitened at his sides, betraying his true feelings. “You are the demigod who inherited the Dryad realm. It is your duty to—”

The rest of his sentence was swallowed by Morgan’s lips.

Cassius froze before melting against him, his eyelids fluttering closed and his hands rising to clasp Morgan’s face with equal heat.

Someone cleared their throat after a moment.

Morgan slowly lifted his mouth from Cassius’s. Color stained his lover’s cheekbones as their soul cores resonated with the love and passion that burned eternally bright between them.

He pressed his forehead against Cassius’s.

“Come with me,” he whispered.

Cassius touched his cheek and shook his head, his eyes darkening. “You know I can’t do that. It looks like Loki’s dream and Regina’s Harbinger are one and the same. Which means there’s a good chance this plague will soon be upon this city.”

Galliad drew a sharp breath. “The Keeper of the Key had a similar premonition?”

“Yes,” Morgan replied reluctantly.

“Cassius is right, Morgan,” Eden said. “That’s why I’m here. My staff told me our city is in imminent danger. And he thinks we can help fight whatever is coming.”

Reuben and Jasper stiffened. Victor’s brow furrowed. Kazmi and Strickland stared at Eden’s pendant, their unease evident.

“Your staff told you?” Strickland said dubiously.

Brianna sighed.

Eden dipped her head. “Woody can talk.” She grimaced. “Well, kinda. I can hear his voice in my head.”

Bailey blinked. He leaned toward Zach. “Did she just call the Bloodcursed Devilwood Summoning Staff Woody?!”

“That’s what it sounded like,” the demon muttered in a voice laced with pity.

The weapon sagged a little against Eden’s throat. It was clear it did not approve of its mundane name.

“I’ll go with Morgan.”

Morgan and Cassius turned, surprised. Theo’s face fell.

Victor shrugged. “I can’t exactly let my idiot younger brother die in another realm now, can I?”

Morgan bristled. “Hey, who’re you calling an idiot?!”

“I know for a fact that you’re one,” Victor muttered.

Theo chewed his lip.

Victor raised a thumb to his lover’s mouth and stayed his nervous gesture. “Besides, I’m a demigod of darkness too.” Crimson glinted in the demon’s pupils. “My powers may very well help Morgan against whatever is attacking the Dryad kingdom.”

Galliad and Cedric shared a determined look.

“We shall accompany you, of course,” the prince told Morgan and Victor.

A heaviness settled in Morgan’s chest. He knew this course of action was the right one to take. Still, he could not stop the foreboding twisting his insides.

If Loki’s right, this battle will not be an easy win.

The look in Cassius’s eyes reflected his thought.

Cassius turned to Theo. “Can you open a portal to Ivory Peaks on the rooftop of this building?”

Theo hesitated.

“Yes,” he replied reluctantly.
