The Genesis of Seven | Excerpt + Giveaway


Eighteen-year-old Jordan Conway has always wanted to help people, but helping seven archangels to achieve their divine duty was never quite what he had in mind… 

When Jordan is entrusted by the head nun of his orphanage to deliver a mysterious backpack to a New York City address, he comes unexpectedly face-to-face with Archangel Gabriel. Their acquaintance fast uncovers a labyrinth of secrets that connect Jordan’s once-normal life to an ancient heavenly prophecy. Now, he must help Gabriel to reunite the archangels before evil forces grow too strong.

Soon, Jordan and Gabriel find themselves on a divine quest across the globe, while deep in the pits of Hell, Satan plots his return to earth. To gain control, however, Satan needs the powerful prophetic objects locked safe inside Jordan’s backpack—and the devil will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

With that notion threatening his only family and the safety of his newfound friends, Jordan must do whatever it takes to protect the ones he loves and help the archangels succeed. If that means sacrificing all he thought he knew to go to war with the devil himself? Bring it on.

Her eyes narrowed into slits. “Yeah, I don’t believe that. I suggest you go back to wherever you came from. We don’t want any trouble here.” She stood her ground.

“We don’t mean any harm, we just need to see Raphael,” Gabriel said.

“Dr. Wolf is indisposed at the moment. I suggest you come back later.”

This woman was far too overbearing.

“Who are you?” Zadkiel asked.

She turned her eyes to him. “I am Dr. Parr, a colleague of Raphael’s.”

“I see.” Zadkiel stared as Uriel strode swiftly past her.

“Hey!” she shouted, going after him.

We followed.

Dr. Parr grabbed Uriel by the arm. “I’m talking to you,” she demanded. “You aren’t going anywhere!”

He twisted out of her hold and faced her.

“Intimidation won’t work,” she warned. But that was not Uriel’s aim.

Reaching inside his pocket, he pulled out his wallet and took out some sort of photo ID card, which he handed to Dr. Parr. “Uri Reed,” he said, “Wildlife Research Specialist.”

She scanned the ID and looked up at him skeptically. “Is that supposed to impress me?”

He sighed. “No, it’s supposed to show you we don’t mean any harm.”

She handed the ID back to him. “You still want me to believe you’re here because of a family emergency?”

Exasperated, Uriel opened his mouth to argue, but Zadkiel spoke first. “Just because we don’t look like Raphael doesn’t mean we’re not his family.”
