#NewRelease - Mutations; book two of the Pathogen series by Elizabeth Loraine!




The Pathogen is mutating, rushing like a wild fire across the country.  Jackson, Lexy and their group are being hunted by what’s left of their own government and another group who wants to control the new mutations for their own benefit. These two scientists might be the only ones left able to find the answer to everything, and each side would rather have them dead than join the other side.
As they run they’ve discovered shocking things and acquired allies in surprising forms. Had this Pathogen come into play before? And if that’s so, is there any chance for humanity? Find out in Mutations; book two of the Pathogen series.

For Shade, a chance meeting with a powerful Teleen Faery warrior who wields electrical currents and blue fires along his skin, has her joining him on a treacherous mission for the good Seelie Faerie Court across the land of Faerie. Magic and malice abound and nothing is what it really seems to be. The evil Unseelie Queen and her treacherous allies are around every corner as Shade makes her way across the breathtaking landscapes of the world of Faerie, which exists alongside the mundane human world. Shade discovers her own uncharted magic and meets some of the most powerful warriors in Faerie while battling evil dryads, conniving Teleen guards and challenges on her life with every step in a world where nothing can be taken for granted.
