Zenobia Grant – Doctor, daughter, lover, warrior. And not quite human.
Zen has been trained from birth to defend herself against a terrible threat. And to be careful to not injure the fragile humans that surround her. She uses her skills to heal, not harm, and to keep the questions that haunt her at bay.
Zen doesn’t know what she really is or what happened to her mother. But the answers will put her in the crosshairs of some of the most powerful and malevolent beings in existence. Djinn, dhampyrs, and vampires all stalk Zen for their own reasons.
Visions inspired by an ancient book lead her to discoveries. Not only of who and what she is, but it identifies the creatures who attack her and her family. What it doesn’t tell her is how to defeat them before any more loved ones are destroyed.
Set against the rich tapestries of the ancient world and present day, Progenie is an epic journey of self-discovery, love, and betrayal.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is seriously a ‘must-read’! First, I never really considered myself a fan of the ‘horror’ genre. Fantasy yes but, in my mind, I guess I figured horror meant I would either be too scared to sleep ever again or too nauseous to ever want to eat again. This book has made me realize that I have had the wrong idea about what horror truly is. This novel contains an astonishing lineup of well-developed characters. I found myself reading way too fast in an effort to find out what was going happen. A few times, I had to calm myself down, back up a few pages and re-read. I became fully invested in their well-being. You travel a lot in this story; for example, present-day Paris, New Orleans and Houston to 10th Century B.C.E. and ‘beyond’. The locations are explained and detailed well. I wish I could visit that chapel in Paris! The heart of this story is centered on Zenobia. Zen is searching to discover not only ‘who’ she is but ‘what’. I have never read a story with a character like her before. I had a lot of mixed emotions reading this book which really made it all that more enjoyable. I highly recommend this book to any horror and/or fantasy enthusiast looking for a crisp, raw, and original story. There is literally something for everyone in this spectacular debut novel from Mack Little.
