Scions 101 by Traci Douglass author of Seal of Destiny


Since the first book in my Seven Seals series was released back in January 2013, many readers have asked me the same question. Who and what exactly are the Scion warriors in your books. Today, I thought I’d try to answer that question for you. J

Here’s the short answer:

The Scion are an elite band of immortal warriors, each of whom were chosen by Divinity herself to serve as she commands.

But wait, you may say. That doesn’t really explain where they came from. Very true. So here’s the longer answer;

There are currently seven Scion warriors: Xander, Kagan, Chago, Wyck, Luther, Sloane, and Barron. They were all human males who died in feats of great valor during some of the greatest battles in earth’s history. Because of their sacrifice and their bravery, Divinity granted each of them immortality and a chance to right the wrongs of their mortal lives. And now protect their very own Seal too, of course. ;)

The Scion have existed for millennia and each warrior has their own ‘specialty’.

Xander is their commanding officer and trains each new Scion upon their calling. Kagan is Xander’s second in command and also handles logistics. Chago is the resident combat expert and Wyck is the Scion’s technology guru. Luther is an expert profiler, Sloane is a doctor and part-time pickpocket, and Barron, the newest member of the team, is a jack-of-all trades.

 They each live in the earthly realm, but do make occasional visits to see Divinity when warranted for missions and such.

 Sound interesting? I hope so. J Want to know more? I’ll be posting bios for one, two or three warriors over a couple of guest blogs spots I’m doing in the next three weeks, starting tomorrow.

Book Description:
Love conquers all… but can it stop the Apocalypse?

Mira Herald is having the worst life ever.  Not only is she plagued by horrific nightmares starring the Devil himself, she’s now the target of a power-hungry, rogue minion, freshly sprung from Hell and bent on her destruction.  To complicate matters further, she’s acquired a stalker. One who insists he’s a divine warrior sent for her protection because she houses an ancient relic with the power to unleash Armageddon. Last time Mira checked, she wasn’t insane. Still, all this celestial mayhem is enough to drive a girl crazy.

Kagan is a member of the Scion, an elite team of immortal warriors selected by Divinity to aid mankind and save the world. After a century alone, Kagan is summoned for a new mission. He’s eager to begin. Eager until he’s informed his mission consists of protecting a woman with no clue to the power she wields. Plus, his briefing fails to prepare him for his new target’s cosmic-sized attitude problem.  As Divinity’s sworn servant, he’s required to fulfill his duty. His oath, however, does not require him to be enthusiastic about his new assignment or warm-and-fuzzy toward his new compatriot. He plans a wham-bam rescue and a quick return to solitude.

The rogue minion attacks—with the backing of a mysterious organization—and all Hades erupts, putting a fast end to any whirlwind escapes. Accustomed to staunch independence, Mira’s survival now requires full cooperation and an unwavering belief in Kagan. The battle-hardened warrior is also forced to chose: between duty and desire. Amidst the turmoil, Kagan and Mira’s undeniable passion draws them closer to each other and down a path neither expected but both yearn for, more than they ever knew.

Will love save the day? The world’s fate depends on the answer.

About the Author:

Traci is the author of paranormal/urban fantasy and contemporary romances featuring a sly, urban edge, including her current Seven Seals series. Her stories feature sizzling alpha-male heroes full of dark humor, quick wits and major attitudes; smart, independent heroines who always give as good as they get; and scrumptiously evil villains who are—more often than not—bent on world destruction. She enjoys weaving ancient curses and mythology, modern science and old religion, and great dialogue together to build red-hot, sizzling chemistry between her main characters.

A storyteller since childhood, she began putting her tales down on paper in November 2011 after the idea for the Seven Seals Series occurred to her in a dream. She finished the first draft of what was to become Seal of Destiny in one month and decided to pursue a full-time writing career in January of 2012. Life has now been a rollercoaster, crash course in pursuing your dreams.

Traci is an active member of Romance Writers of America (RWA), Indiana Romance Writers of America (IRWA) and Fantasy, Futuristic & Paranormal Writers (FF&P) and is pursing a Masters of Fine Arts degree in Writing Popular Fiction through Seton Hill University. Her stories have made the final rounds in several RWA chapter contests, including the 2012 Duel on the Delta, the 2012 Molly Awards, and the 2012 Catherine Awards. An earlier draft of Seal of Destiny won the paranormal category of the 2012 Marlene Awards sponsored by the Washington Romance Writers.

Other current projects include upcoming books in the Seven Seals series and a new futuristic detective series with hints of the paranormal and plenty of romance.
