A mysterious flower sprouts in a paradise of superstition.

Abel Carraway investigates this prophesied harbinger of doom and realizes there is a scheme underneath the exotic politics.

He will discover an unexpected connection to his friend, Carmine Lassiter. An act of horrifying violence will force them both to face their greatest mystery, their own natures. If they don’t find an answer, a divine power may usher in the apocalypse.

In a world where desires and fears can conjure the ghosts of eels and lambs, Recumon’s literary stories lace into a lyrical web of the paranormal and the psychological that forms a mosaic of the human condition.


MICHAEL R.E. ADAMS pens narratives in the speculative tradition. He invokes the meditative lyricism of literary fiction and the mysterious suspense of genre fiction to create complex characters in magical and science-based worlds. From a black aristocrat casting curses in a scheme for power to a gay Asian American leading a superheroic fight to protect the innocent, he portrays underrepresented groups to expand the world’s imagination of who we can all be. Even with magic, superpowers, and new perspectives, he tells tales that all people can relate to, stories about the desire and fear of connecting to others and exploring our own hearts. (
