Who are we, really, underneath the masks we choose to wear?
Alex Kincaid is twenty-four years old. She leads a quiet life in a small college town. Alex works at Galen Industries and spends most of her free time with her co-workers. Her friends, like Emma Bastian, want to meddle in Alex’s love life. That’s what friends do, right?
Alex is preoccupied with the odd letter she’s received. It grants her a large inheritance from a total stranger. Among the effects is a magical mask that will change Alex’s life forever. It horrified Alex to see the mask take her face shape after a brutal attack. The mask is endowed with the powers of the ancient sky deity Horus, the protector of order.
Alex is now in danger from Set, the god of storms and chaos. Set has vowed to take revenge against Horus for killing his lover. Since the mask fuses the personalities of its previous owners, Alex’s own identity is in danger of being lost forever. As Alex and her friends attempt to solve the mystery, the stakes keep rising. Set is hot on Alex’s trail, and he won’t stop. Alex discovers feelings for her co-worker Gabriel Reyes. Alex must thread the needle of destiny and fulfillment.
The book explores who we really are. Author Nora Delzelle weaves a tale of ancient love and modern society into compelling fantasy. As the mystery is revealed, one thing soon becomes clear: no mask can hide the truth.
