Description

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐AMAZON #1 BESTSELLER⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Rumored to be joining the coveted MARVEL COMICS franchise, the Scion Saga Series delivers with gripping page-turners saturated with mutated Limbal Rings, supernatural abilities, familial bonds, perplexing Russian ancestry, and romance. Cālix takes us on an adventure that begins when 16 year old misanthrope, Adam, unknowingly reaches biokenretic puberty, and his supernatural abilities awaken to save him from his murderous intentions. His every thought revolves around the extinction of the human race until mysterious Russian, Carly Wit, stumbles into his English class one morning. Adam notices something otherworldly about her immediately, but denies the bio-synch taking place inside of him. As he resists their blossoming love, he battles with unnatural thoughts of his mother. Discovering his origin isn't what he'd thought, he becomes determined to peel back the layers of his lineage and unmasks a multitude of mind-bending secrets along the way.
