Eternal Tuat

Links:Tour  Amazon B&N 

Bagsu, his name alone strikes fear in the Guardian Nation.
What can cause one twin, destined to take his father’s place as a priest turn evil and lead a crusade to dominate the human race while the other fights to save mankind?

Finally, secrets are revealed when Bagsu leads us back in time to the land of New Tuat. Experience first hand what really happened to Bagsu and Gabriel long before they became immortal, when twin brothers were the best of friends. 


She grows silent. I stroke her back, hoping she’ll turn so I can see her face again.
“Nefer, what is it? What is it you are not saying? Taking your first initiation isn’t deeming you an oracle. From what you have told me, it is just another step in your schooling. You said not so long ago when you take your initiation you will have more freedom… freedom for us to see each other more often.”
She sits up, pulls back and puts inches between us. I lean up with my legs still stretched out in front of me. “Nefer?”
“I can’t take my vows, not now, not ever… Bagsu…”
Again, she lowers her head and lets her sentence fall short from what she wants to say. I place my forefinger on her chin and gently turn her head to look at me. “Nefer?”
“Bagsu, oh Bagsu,” she cries, throwing herself upon my chest.
Oh how I wish I had her gift, to know what she is thinking. She’s told me she has accepted her destiny, not to shame her parents, and to become a priestess as long as we can be together like this. Does she not want to see me again? Does she not love me? My heart is wrenching. I need to comfort her, to protect her from what ever is tearing her apart.
“Nefer, there is nothing we cannot accomplish together. Nothing so terrible we cannot overcome… unless… you have grown tired of me?”
“No, Bagsu, I grow not tired of you. You have always been foremost in my heart. You are, as you have always been, my strength, my world, my love.”
Gently with my hands on her shoulders, I tilt her where I can look into her eyes.
“Nefer, do not torture me like this. Together, there is nothing we cannot do. Do you not know, your pain is mine? Share with me what troubles you so. Why can’t you take your vows?”
She takes my hand and places it on her lower abdomen. “The seed of life grows within. Bagsu, I am with child.”
