On a mission deep in the Peruvian jungle, mercenary Ezra Beller’s life is radically changed as a mysterious plant alters his genetic code. As he evolves and mutates into an angelic creature with crystalline finger nails and hawk-eyes, scientists classify him a new species: Homo Sarara. Frightened by the ramifications of a mutant race developing, religious groups nationwide fear Ezra’s return home to the United States where a civil war between the eastern and western regions is causing widespread discord. Ezra’s life is further complicated by his attraction to Ingrid McAdam, a young biologist who becomes fascinated by his condition. As their intimacy escalates, so do the church’s protests against their cross-species relationship. The journey Ezra and Ingrid take soon becomes treacherous when Vishnu, a former comrade of Ezra’s turned global terrorist, plots to use Ezra’s Sararan genes to execute an apocalyptic prophecy. Ezra uses his skills, experience and new biological frame to retaliate against this malicious foe, but Vishnu has a secret of his own waiting to be unleashed on the world. In a time of great turmoil, the future of the human race rests on the shoulders of a demonized Sararan and the woman who loves him.
About the author
Parker was raised in the rugged mountains of Montana where he grew up hunting and hiking in the outdoors while developing a love for books and poetry at a young age. He won the Authors of the Flathead poetry competition in 2008 and was published in several local poetry publications. As a budding writer and musician, Parker carried his talents to music school in Los Angeles where he studied bass guitar and met different people from all over the world. His friends in school offered several unique perspectives from their various locations on the globe, giving Parker a window into the unknown while challenging his own beliefs and opinions. After school, he began writing the epic Winds of the Immortals Trilogy while fighting wild fires and traveling through the vast lands of the North American west. Journeying through the wilderness in the Cascades, Alaska, the Rocky Mountains, and New Mexican deserts gave Parker the time and settings to formulate this epic saga between his long stints on the front lines in the war against nature. His writing is influenced by mythology, folklore, epic poetry, stories of people facing adversity, modern and ancient military history, and multi-cultural perspectives.
