Overview

Four worlds that cannot be visited.
Four worlds that must be visited.

Aliens are spying on Earth from one of the four worlds that make up the Warden Diamond. But it is impossible to send agents to any of the four worlds because of unique microscopic symbionts that make it impossible for visitors to leave the Diamond.

Seeking a unique solution, each of the four worlds making up the Diamond is sent a person whose mind has been stripped of everything and who is now controlled by an agent of the Confederacy.

Park Lacoch’s body (stripped of his own mind) is exiled to the hell-world of Charon, one of the Warden Diamond worlds being investigated for alien influences and presence. Can he survive long enough to complete his investigation in this unbearably hot world where strange creatures roam and witchcraft is a normal way of life?

    Angel of Death, Hear My Cry--Chapter 3 Part 2

    "Not all angels start as angels. We recruit those who have promising potential and enroll them in the Lusenkiya, the Academy of Angelic. I'm assigned to take you to Heaven."<br>I just stood there.<br>He grinned, laughing. "I know it sounds like alot, but you'll get used to it. We're etty sure you're on of the Three. Now c'mon." He turned, flexing his wings.<br>You're going to fly me there?" I stealthily hid the bundle under a bush, carefully returning to my original positon.<br>He shook his head, unhooking a foot long slender cylinder from a pack on his back. He turned back around, unscrewing the lid. "This will serve as temporary wings, until you are outfitted. Drink it without taking a breath."<br>I took the cylinder, peeking over the side. It was full of bubbling liquid, that reminded me of soda. Carefully holding my breath, I drank it all in one gulp.<br>"It will take a few seconds for the mixture to to reach the proper area. It will tingle when the wings form." He stood still, arms at his sides.<br>I felt tingling coming from my shoulder blades, and glanced back. My jaw dropped. I had shimmering silver wings, a white aura surrounding them. "What's this stuff called?"<br>"The most I can tell you is that it's called Winrom. I'll give you a few minutes to practice flying, then we'll head off."<br>I nodded, flexing my wings like I had seen him do.

    Absolutely love all four of these books, especially as the prota

    Absolutely love all four of these books, especially as the protagonist is forced to face him (and occasionally, her)self in a mirror that shows a bit more than he might prefer...

    Naigara

    Naigara turned away her massive head. "I know how that feels. I was born a malcadh, a pup with a deformity. Malcadh means 'cursed one'. Look." She said, then showed Ash her hind paw. It was twisted, so that the claws faced her back. Naigara fliched expecting a stinging response and perhaps a bite, like she always got from her fellow wolves in her pack.

    Mist & Mellow

    She disapeared to "blue mists". ~ Mist
    "I'll be careful," the dragon-like creature promised. "You should come too. We'll both be... safer, I guess." He turned and led the way back to the longhouse. ~ Mellow
