Persephone, Descending is a tale of an ancient horror in the far future. On an Earth made too small by technology, where will an ancient evil hide?
Starship Persephone, faded beauty from a more affluent past, is now little more than a colony transport. Paying passengers, indentured colonists, and the ship's crew are about to find there is more to fear than an unknown future. Commander Jordan Kincaid is second-in-command of the Persephone. He is a man with a strength and speed made possible by a terrible science. Rachel Cord is beautiful, rich, and bent on revenge. Father Gary Short hopes to bring a message of God to the stars. Tyler Harris, young psychopath, boards the ship against his will. Ryland Cole flees a criminal past. Some will find their hopes and dreams in their new home and some will find riches. Others will live a lifetime of drudgery that is almost slavery. All will find one truth before the trip is through. That the darkness of space is the perfect hiding place for the perfect predator.

The author cleverly weaves a tale of ancient evil set in the future. The effect of technology on an evil force as old as time itself, is an intriguing twist. The characters are rich, the setting is described in a detail that makes you see and feel the character's horror, and the plot twists and turns until the surprising end. This horror tale can be intense at times, probably too intense for some. If, however, you're ready for a great read and a page turning tale, read on...you'll love it.
