Now that my story anthology has released and is doing VERY well, (exciting!), I am back to sharing from my WIP, Book II of my Illuminati series, The Tree of Life. When we left off, the Royal family had just returned to Egypt where Isis, somewhat angry, was informing her husband, Osiris, that one of "his mistakes" was loose in the wilds of the rainforest and had dared to attack her. The entire clan quite naturally expressed varying degrees of shock and disbelief at this annoucement, though it was a given that the creature must be brought under their control.
We are in Kirin's point of view as she is the heroine of this novel, and the "mistake" as we will discover soon enough is to be the hero, Rio. Kirin has already encountered Rio, but had hoped to keep that encounter from her mother.
“Rio? You know that cat’s name? Andrew!” Isis said, turning toward her son who was tearing a large hunk of bread off with his teeth. “You will take some of your men and fetch this beast.” "Mother, wait. I think Luc and I should go, if it’s the geneticist who had the ingredient for my formula. You said yourself he has knowledge we need.”
“She speaks wisely,” said Osiris.
“And with duplicity. You have not yet revealed how you know this man is the shapeshifter or how you came by your knowledge of him,” Isis insisted.
