A powerful, hidden artefact is unearthed in modern day Iraq and, with its discovery, an ancient conflict is reignited. Seventeen-year-old Sage Woods, the daughter of an eminent archaeologist working at the British Museum recently relocated from Australia, uncovers the artefact’s disturbing secret and is placed in terrible danger. Unwittingly, she has stumbled into an invisible war between two primordial dynasties of a supernatural order – a war in which she has a fateful role to play in a race to control the power of the SEED.
Embroiled in a quest that takes her from the British Museum to the Louvre to the Vatican Secret Archives, Sage realises that her blossoming romance with the mysterious, alluring St. John Rivers is inextricably tied to the artefact. Up until now, St. John has managed to keep his true identity hidden, but Sage is determined to delve deeper to uncover his dark secret and his connection to the SEED. It is a decision that will have a devastating effect on humankind…
EXCERPT from Seed by D.B Nielson
Sage and Fi
‘Of course I didn’t give them all the photos or all the negatives as they requested. I’m not stupid, you know!’ she said, a smug look plastered on her face, ‘I only gave them the ones that were normal, nothing unusual. I couldn’t believe how devious my sister was, she had a real talent for deception – though this was something that I had always known, as she was a master of being able to elude detection, sneaking out of the house at fifteen to go clubbing with friends much older than herself who should have been more responsible than to allow an underage youth to accompany them, lying tour parents about who she was meeting up with, smiling winsomely to get her way with one parent knowing that the other would disapprove, and almost never getting caught. I kept her secrets out of loyalty to a twin, but it wasn’t easy.
