    Judith Claire Mitchell: IMG The Book That Refused to Write Itself

Publisher Comments:

Nothing exciting ever happened to fifteen-year-old orphans Eliot and Fiona, who are trapped in the strict, oppressive household of their grandmother. A chance visit, however, reveals that the twins are the offspring of a goddess and Lucifer, Prince of Darkness.

To settle the epic custody battle between these two families, the fallen angels create three diabolical temptations and the gods fashion three heroic trials to test Eliot and Fiona. The twins need to quickly learn how to use their budding supernatural abilities . . . for family allegiances are ever-shifting in the ancient, secret world they have entered, and only by sticking together will they be able to survive!


The "New York Times"-bestselling author of "Halo: Ghosts of Onyx" blends urban and epic fantasy as ancient mythology shows its face in the modern world.

D Goreham, May 3, 2010 (view all comments by D Goreham)
Born of a goddess and the Prince of Darkness should mean an awesome life for human twins. For Eliot and Fiona life sucks. What fifteen year old wants to wear homemade clothes, be homeschooled and work in a Pizza joint? They live with their grandmother who only expresses herself through the one hundred rules she is raising them by. No one tells them who their parents were except that they died in a car crash shortly after they were born. All they want is to have what they think is a normal life. To go out on dates, have friends over and maybe even go to a real school. Their life is predictable routine, until . . . their fifteenth birthday. And their world changes forever. Their decisions over the next few days will change the fate of two eternal families. The answers to the questions regarding their parents will have unbelievable results leading the twins on life altering paths.
