Mercy Stone comes from a long line of Blood Moon witches and, as such, is no stranger to coexisting alongside life’s great mysteries. However, nothing could prepare her for the journey that awaits her following a fateful encounter with an enigmatic White Crow.
Haunted by visions of a past life and the discovery of a gruesome family talisman, Mercy is led away from the hollows of Appalachia to New Orleans in search of answers. What she finds instead is a group of hermetic elites consumed by their lust for power, and they’re standing in the way of her divine quest for Truth.
But Mercy is not alone. Along her path, Mercy re-encounters the magical beings she has known across her many lifetimes since time immemorial, including King Solomon, the Battle Crows of Carpathia and the Devil himself. In a battle for her soul, and the soul of humanity, Mercy must call upon the greatest powers in existence, decide who she can trust, and travel to the furthest ends of the cosmos. Even then, it will not be enough.
Then, she must make it back.
“Will Mercy escape impending doom?”
A cosmic being in her own right, East S. M. was born in a small Kentucky town that sits inside a meteorite crater. A wild past of wonderful and sometimes unspeakable experiences, and decades of empowering others to seek their own quests, has called East to share Mercy's story in the esoteric genre of Occult fiction. Her debut novel is the first in an anthology that reimagines the Spirit world, the human condition, and the necessity of both evolution and devolution within our lifetimes.
