 "...evocative story ...passionately and engagingly written..."-- Kirkus Reviews 


"...extraordinary, cutting edge, landmark book..."

A timeless tale of love reborn through the ages.

Maxwell Quinn, a laid-back, pot-smoking blogger based in Seattle, is no ordinary soul. He is the reincarnation of Marcus, born 13,000 years ago in the land of Atitala during mankind’s Golden Age. Since then Marcus has been reincarnated an exhausting number of times, and his energy is waning. Through it all, his purpose remains clear – to guide mankind in its evolution and to reunite with his true love, Theron, but evil always stands in his way – until now.


Mixing spirituality, fantasy, and adventure, The Emissary is a sprawling novel that takes readers on an epic journey as they witness history through Marcus’s many lives. 

As a child in Atitala, Marcus and his best friends Theron and Helghul enjoy the advantages of living in a peaceful, sacred world. But chaos is on the horizon, and their ancient land is about to be destroyed. To ensure civilization’s survival, the Elders of Atitala select a small group of Emissaries, including the three youngsters, who through many reincarnations are destined to lead humanity into an era of peace and prosperity. But tragedy strikes. Marcus and Theron are separated as they flee Atitala, while Helghul is possessed by the forces of evil. Each time that Marcus and Theron are reunited through the ages, Helghul brutalizes them and forces them apart, determined to ruin all hope for mankind’s salvation.


Intertwining the elements of great writing with deep philosophical thought and natural history. The Emissary is a reincarnation tale that explores the many facets of love and the breadth of anguish and joy that all souls must endure in life. It is an unforgettable tale of eternal love, betrayal, and the hope that binds us all. This book is destined to become a classic. The series is also available in action packed author-narrated audio books.
