Night's Blood - Return of the Scarlet Eye
by Maggie Best
“It’s in the blood, Alex.”
Alex stared at Set.
“Are you telling me I’m from the same race as you?”
Lost for centuries, the Scarlet Eye of Horus amulet has been found and exhumed. Once powerful enough to defeat Set, god of Night, and enslave his people, the Seti, what might it be used for today, in the wrong hands?
Determined to put an end to the device forever, Set returns from the Underworld, but finds his powers severely diminished. If he is to succeed in destroying the Scarlet Eye, he’ll need help.
Alex, the most powerful Seti ever born, is totally unaware of his heritage or his latent power, until Fate casts him in Set’s path, after the current owners of the Scarlet Eye, Doug and Alicia St Clair, Alex’s foster parents, disappear.
The reticent teen is hardly what Set has in mind, but when the dreaded amulet goes missing, Set and Alex form a reluctant alliance: Alex will learn to master his powers to help Set with his quest, and in return Set will help him to rescue his foster parents...if they can find them and the Scarlet Eye in time.
Night's Blood is the first volume in the God's Apprentice series.
