As Shela reflected on her parents' lives, a strange thought entered her mind. What if everything she thought she knew about them was wrong?
Her father had always been the picture of health, while her mother seemed to spend half her life sick and in bed.
But what she had just seen over the last few days had turned all of that on its head. When she found her parents, dead in their bed, her father looked old, withered, and mostly decomposed. While her mother, dead just as long and under the same layer of dust, looked younger than ever and was perfectly preserved.
She couldn't help but notice that her father burned like straw in the funeral pyre, while her mother seemed nearly immune for hours longer than should ever have been possible.
But if everything she thought she knew about her parents was wrong, what did that mean about the rest of her family?
She stared at her hands as she wondered just how much of her mother's blood, was in her?
Daughters of Immortality is the sixth book in The Hummingbirds Series and picks up where Mourning after Dawn leaves off.
About the Author
I'm an Indie author living in Bumpass (yes, there really is a place called Bumpass). Indie, in my case, means no cover artist, no editors, and no marketing of any kind. For good or bad, it's just me, a taped together laptop bought in '03, and some horrendous credit card debt for over a decade of typing. The Hummingbird Series was written with each book more like a season on a TV series than what some may expect from a 'traditional' or 'mainstream' series from those Publishing House factories. It starts with The Art of the Houdini Scientist, then continues with Patent Mine, Hell from a Well, The Heredity of Hummingbirds, Mourning after Dawn, Daughters of Immortality, and Waffen, with others on the way. Questions or comments? They're always welcome at my Xanga blog or Facebook (TR Nowry). I'll be sure to answer... on those months I can afford to pay my phone bill. Found some typos and have a hankering to help an indie author instead of hurling stones? Both sites work well for that too. Please continue to support your favorite Indie authors by recommending them to your friends and writing thoughtful reviews, it's the only marketing most of us will ever get!

folks if I were you I would buy this guys books fast. I see Tr Nowry as a future Lit. King! He will go far. A fine example with Daughters of Immorality, well written, beautiful, emotional, and one of the best books this reader has read in a long time, and might I add a long time since a book has brought this much emnotion to me! I cant recommend this writer more! It was a great closure to the other 4 books, I cant say ending and for those who have read the series, you know why I cant say end. Also for Bargin Shoppers, lots of words for yopu buck here over 900 pages!
