Rumored to be joining the coveted Marvel Comics franchise, the Scion Saga is an exhilarating young adult series of adversity, bravery, and determination. The adventure primarily chronicles the lives of 16-year-olds Adam Caspian, Carly Wit, and their clan - all of whom are Descendants of seven ancient Russian Bloodlines. These bloodlines carry unique genetic markers that, when active, grant the host various supernatural abilities. Descendants can be easily identified by their glowing Limbal Rings. The Descendants are under constant threat of extermination at the hands of The Iksha - an elite,but murderous society of scientists. The series includes a veritable myriad of familial situations that create stronger bonds between the Bloodlines as they band together to fight for their existence.
"A...rousing, supernatural tale combined with a gleefully eccentric teenage romance." (Kirkus Reviews)
"No casual coming-of-age story. Opaque is laden with angst, psychological power, and is a tale of dysfunction in a world where supernatural abilities can thwart mental illness, where a mysterious Afro-Russian girl who holds the power to divert Adam from the apocalypse he's preparing for the future." (Donovan Literary Services)
"A tense page-turner that does more than present a teen's world. It pulls the reader in to an evolutionary process that is far more than one of transition points, but embraces moral and ethical conundrums.." (Midwest Book Review)
