Colonel Maria Olsen, decorated veteran of the Afghanistan and Iranian campaigns and the general’s onetime companion, will be compelled to leave her spiritual retreat and join him on this, his final mission. Together, they will face hardship and mortal danger as General Scofield leads his army to a climactic confrontation with his nation’s enemies. Before joining him in death, Maria’s last act of devotion will be to seek revenge against his mortal enemy, a mysterious Saudi Prince known to them through the general’s Angelic prophecy.” The Lion’s Prophecy opens with the nuclear destruction of Washington DC and New York City, and the deaths in those blasts of our nation’s most prominent political and financial leaders. Only one man alive has the technological ability and the moral courage to rally the country, rout its enemies, and save the United States from destruction: General Michael Scofield, “The Lion.” Will he unleash World War III with his menacing display of destructive power? Will he “stand down” at war’s end, or dictate terms to the country’s new leadership? Will his secret research into genetic design change the very nature of mankind? These are the questions asked in The Lion’s Prophecy. With its global action and life-altering technologies, "The Lion’s Prophecy" is the ultimate novel for fans of futuristic techno-thrillers.  Prophecy also provides food for thought for readers in search of an alternative spiritual zeitgeist. The saga explores the impact of technology on war, and the impact of both on the material and spiritual existence of mankind. "The Lion’s Prophecy" can be read on many different levels -- as a fast-moving adventure story, as a cautionary tale about the subduction of our humanity by genetic engineering and other technological marvels, or as a spiritual journey in which the protagonists confront their inner demons and triumph over them.

"A bold and subversive retelling of the goddess's story," this #1 New York Times bestseller is "both epic and intimate in its scope, recasting the most infamous female figure from the Odyssey as a hero in her own right" (Alexandra Alter, The New York Times).

In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child--not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power--the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves.
Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus.

But there is danger, too, for a woman who stands alone, and Circe unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods, ultimately finding herself pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians. To protect what she loves most, Circe must summon all her strength and choose, once and for all, whether she belongs with the gods she is born from, or the mortals she has come to love.

With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language and page-turning suspense, Circe is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man's world.
