Now that the distraction was successful, they group make their way across the desert but run into a few shady characters and things turn for the worst when betrayal strikes.
Now this was an interesting chapter and the first of a three part story. Doctor Mordrid revives what I like to imagine is a letter from a good friend of his asking for his assistance. Once again Mordrid finds himself in a sticky situation as he finds a woman trapped inside a crystal, except it’s no ordinary woman…it’s Lilith.
Now this was a cool chapter to work on as I spent the better good part of the afternoon researching Lilith and relevant Bible related things. Went to a bunch of Jewish religious sites and even ended up on a feminist essay on Lilith on how she was some strong woman who needed no man which gave me a good chuckle. Anyway, enjoy the chapter.
This time the good doctor finds himself in a town with a fanatical pastor who seemingly found himself getting visions from an angel buried underneath the town. However, all is not what it seems. Inside you’ll find bible quotes and a very relevant reference to the German poet Rainer Maria Rilke’s the second elegy.
Set in America’s old wild west, Archaeologist Doctor Mordrid begins his lonesome adventure! In the first chapter he happens upon a place where people are mysteriously being turned into gold.
