Winter Solstice #2
Something big stirs in the murk of the Volga river, emerging at night to sow mayhem and death along the banks. Since she’s already stranded at ground zero, Solstice Winters agrees to help. A small numina problem stands between her and getting back to her family―its only about twenty feet long.
Yay for being the only elf in the world.
After narrowly escaping the Ordo Sanguinem Aeternam, she winds up sharing a flat halfway across the world from home with the enigmatic Cristiano, an agent of the secretive organization she may have obligated herself to join. He seems to know his way around the city, and he’s not bad on the eyes either.
Solstice soon realizes she’s tracking a beast the likes of which none of her father’s books have mentioned, a creature unique to Russia that her magic lacks the strength to kill. To make matters worse, the Federal Security Bureau sticks their noses into the mix.
While hunting the dangerous numina, she awakens a forgotten power in the depths of the river that has the potential to alter the course of human history―and not for the better.
