About the book...

Mother Earth creates an army of paranormal super-beings known as The Gemini. They will try everything to wipe out humanity- plagues, disasters, cancer.

Oliver Weldon, oil tycoon, is recruited by the Mother and becomes a lead Gemini. Renamed Onyx, his duty is to completely destroy the human race.

The Gemini, a powerful rising force, proceeds to systematically decimate towns, cities, states… and eventually, the world.

Amidst the chaos, a forbidden relationship between a girl, Violette, and Onyx, begins. He will wrestle between his new found conscience and his duty to the Mother.

They find themselves in the middle of a revolutionary war that will either save, or destroy human kind.

To Fight What You Cannot See

"Why, Father? Why are they doing this?"
“We don't know. They are not of our realm, Slate. Demons? Poltergeist? No one knows what they are or where they come from. The possibilities are endless but the church’s view is clear; they are straight from hell. We don't worry so much about the whys anymore, we focus more on how to stop them."
"But how can we fight them if we don't know what or who they are?"
"Slate, the only way we have found that works is exorcisms. It takes two to three priests to do these long rituals, depending on how strong the entity is. Exorcising takes great strength and time; it is not a winning war tactic."
"But you really don't know who or what they are? Has anyone ever tried to spy on them? Blend in with them?"
"We can't get close to them because we can't see them, touch them, smell them, or even hear them, unless they want us to. They move about day or night; they can pop up anywhere with no notice, in the people you love, in your favorite pet. They have no weaknesses, no limitations. Their options of attack have no boundary, they have no natural enemies. They are primeval and carry the wisdom of a greater power. We just don't know how to blend in, or if it’s even possible.”
Slate stood up and slammed his hand into his fist. "How do you expect me to fight these things? You say we need to stay and fight but what I really hear you saying is we need to sit like lambs and wait to be slaughtered. What is your game plan? What do you want me to do?" He could feel his face getting warm as he started to pace in front of the fire.
"We can fight them, Slate, if we kill whoever they are in. They cannot escape once the heart stops. They will die with the person they inhabit. I guess you can compare them to parasites. If the host dies, the parasite living off of it dies too."
Slate stopped pacing and sat down. "Do you want me to guess who might be possessed around me at any given time and kill them?”
