The Ophidian

by Daryl McKenzie

We can’t ignore it. We can all feel it. There’s something troubling about the year we find ourselves in. 2024, the Year of the Dragon, is predicted to be a year like no other. It will be only the beginning though, and all beginnings have an ending. It won’t start with a boom, but rather, it’ll be insidious, gradually strangling the life out of humanity. Either way, we won’t see it coming.

In this political thriller/horror, Lucas Blair, former detective and bestselling author, loses his wife, Cindy, to something he can’t explain or tell anyone about, for fear that people will think that he’s crazy, or even worse, they’ll think that he’s guilty of murder.

As he searches for answers under the scrutiny of the press, he meets a lovely woman, Eva, who has had her own experiences and who has also lost a loved one to these ungodly beings. As they investigate the phenomenon together, which seems to permeate the rich and powerful, she finds herself falling in love with him, but he’s still mourning the death of Cindy. And though the feeling becomes mutual, Lucas can’t tear himself from the memory of his late spouse. Begging the question, how long should a man wait to fall in love following the death of his wife? But none of that will matter if they can’t stop the ending of humanity.

The Ophidian, a fast-paced paranormal novel, packed with twists and breathtaking moments that will make you wonder, how in the world does this all end?
