No mask can hide the truth. Alex inherits a mask from a stranger. She is then the victim of an assault. Is it related? Is it linked to the nightmares haunting her? As Alex and friends attempt to solve the mystery, the stakes keep rising. Can she survive a god’s wrath?
No mask can hide the truth . . .
Alex Kincaid is 24 years old and leads a relatively quiet life in a small college town. As an employee of Galen Industries, she spends her free time with her co-workers, like Emma Bastian, who wants to constantly meddle in Alex’s love life. That’s what friends do, right?
But Alex is too preoccupied with the odd letter she’s received—one that grants her a large inheritance from a total stranger, including a magical mask that’s going to change Alex’s life forever.
After an attempt on her life, Alex is horrified to see the mask take the shape of her face. It’s endowed with the powers of the ancient sky deity Horus, the protector of order. But now Alex is in danger because Set, the god of storms and chaos, has vowed to take revenge against Horus for killing his lover. And since the mask fuses the personalities of its previous owners, Alex’s own identity is in danger of being lost forever.
As Alex and her friends attempt to solve the mystery, the stakes keep rising. With Set hot on Alex’s trail, not to mention her growing feelings for her co-worker Gabriel Reyes, she must thread the needle of destiny and fulfillment.
The Secrets of the Kings is a thrilling story about who we really are. Author Nora Delzelle weaves a gripping tale of ancient love and modern society into a compelling fantasy. And as the mystery is eventually revealed, one thing soon becomes clear: no mask can hide the truth.
