The new novel by J.R. Walcutt
There are gods controlling us, and they are called the Ascended.
When a Salem psychic tells middle school teacher Mattie Fisher that she’s a reincarnated goddess, Mattie doesn't buy it for a second. But then the psychic says that the dreams that haunt Mattie are memories of her past lives, and that she must undergo a ceremony in order to finally understand the truth about herself.
What Mattie doesn't realize is that there's more at stake than just an escape from endless nights of Netflix binge-watching.
A god of war is hunting her—forcing her to race from the deity-filled streets of New York to sacred Hindu temples to the lawless Amazon jungle. Helping her is Jared Stone, a web developer who struggles to forget his own shattered life in order to find redemption through Mattie's salvation.
If Mattie is to survive and restore balance to the world, she must accept the powers buried within her, which could either bring her ultimate wisdom or complete madness.
