According to actual documents hidden in the Apocrypha, an ancient race of supernatural beings known as Irin roam the Earth. Impervious to aging, illness or mortal injury, they wage a continuous war against those who once threatened the survival of mankind by corrupting the natural order. While ever present, they prefer to remain unseen in order to freely move among us. Those who are seen are easily overlooked and immediately forgotten. Walk down any street in the world and you will pass at least one Irin. Depending on the threat or situation, sometimes many.


When his flame-haired partner disappears after a brutal beating, the legendary Irin enforcer known as Riley Storm sets out to bring her back. Ending his search in Los Angeles, territory he once ruled over, he discovers an alarming secret behind the city's most violent criminals and decides to reclaim not only his fiery companion and fiercest ally but the land he once called home.

Irin is a prequel to The Last Scribe Series, an epic fantasy based on the last surviving descendant of Enoch, an unlikely girl who has inherited the the secret of creation and the power to create a new world.

This book captured my full attention within the first 6 pages. The author paints each scene with vivid detail. Each thought is important and piece-by-piece, you learn important information on the key characters Riley and Peach and a few others.

This novella book is extremely well-written. It has perfect flow and has surprising twists and key points that you don't see coming. There is not a dull moment.

You read from both Riley and Peach's point of view throughout and witness the historic prequel story to the Last Scribe. I absolutely recommend this novella if you're a lover of excellent series. I am very excited for the following prequels to be released! M. Wiley
