The Genes of Isis is the third novel in a trilogy, in which the first two books - the Footprints of the Angels and the Casting of Shadows - are as yet unpublished. Please find below an overview and some extracts from these two novels.

Footprints of the Angels – Overview

The Helios and the Solarii are tribes of angels who come to Earth to deliver the Surge, the next step in the evolution of the human race.

Two young women, Irit and Ashetar, hear the ringing of the legendary soul bell - an ancient harbinger of the Surge.

The Helios angels rise out of the ground like an invisible astral mist. Transforming themselves into hornets, they sting Irit and Ashetar and spray a mysterious astral pollen over the populace. Irit and Ashetar fall pregnant and everyone hopes and expects it heralds the appearance of the much-delayed Surge. But when the Helios and Solarii start fighting each other, and vying for the very soul of humanity, which ones should they trust?

This is the premise of the Footprints of the Angels, the first novel in The Genes of Isis trilogy.

The Casting of Shadows – Overview

Having cast the Helios into a prison 'beneath the valleys of the Earth', the Solarii are in a life and death struggle to acclimatise to the planet's inhospitable astral light.

Irit and the humans are coming to terms with the arrival of a belligerent race of hybrids in their midst and have to trust the Solarii to help them suppress the growth of the pernicious hybrid seed.

The Casting of Shadows narrates the terrible journey the Solarii make from the astral realms to the mundane, where they are made flesh and cast a shadow. Are the hybrids really so vicious that they'd attack their own mothers - the daughters of men

Irit's father, Magril, believes the Solarii are manipulating the hybrids and inducing them to make war on the humans and will stop at nothing to prove it.

This is the premise of The Casting of Shadows, the second novel in The Genes of Isis trilogy.
