Living Vessels

They've always been part of our world, incarnating in different forms and reliving the same myths again and again. They have many names, many bodies, but their souls remain the same. They're rare but not uncommon, though their secrets remain buried in their souls underneath the amnesia of rebirth.

They've always been together, finding each other through the ages. One dies, the other lives, as it has been since the beginning. The first time was the hardest but it never gets easier. 

This is a story of love and reincarnation in a hidden world of incarnated gods in living vessels.

This race, the Silver, are as varied in their pleasures and vices as humanity. Through the millennia they colour our lives with fantasy, with romance, with wonder and with horror. 

So how well do you really know the people with whom you surround yourself? Your friends, your colleagues, acquaintances and lovers? And if you can't even be sure of them, then how can you ever trust a stranger to be what he appears?

Encounters is a series of short-story prequels to Josie Jaffrey's post-apocalyptic paranormal romance novels: the Solis Invicti quadrilogy (available on Amazon).

Aethos

It was the Breath of God, and to the people of the City it was the core of their world. It warmed their homes and their hearts, it sustained them and strengthened them, and it filled their lives with joy. Known as the Aether to those who studied it, its intricacies remained elusive to all. It was imperceptible to the naked eye, yet its presence was felt everywhere. It was infinitely subtle, yet immeasurably powerful. With it, the City stood as a fortress against the desert winds, and as a bastion of hope and of faith. Its people lived without fear of disease, war, famine, or poverty. Life was perfect.

 

But as the pious civil officer Nathaniel Grey will soon come to suspect, the true nature, and source, of the Aether may be vastly far removed from everything he had been led to believe.
