The Wild West, 1835. Danger lies within. Cassie Harris, a teenager with the gift of prophecy, has a terrible vision of the death of her beloved older brother. Made an outcast by her powers and her relationship with a mysterious god, Cassie struggles against her family and the mores of her times to find and stop the killer – and fate itself. But Cassie’s quest will lead her to a truth that threatens to destroy her entire world.
COMES THE FLAME is a re-imagining of the Trojan War and a sweeping epic of ancient magic in the American West. Northwest Texas, 1835. Seventeen-year-old Cassie is the youngest daughter of a wealthy cattle ranching family… and the reincarnation of the Trojan princess Cassandra. The ancient god Apollo has spent eons awaiting her rebirth. When he opens Cassie’s eyes to her innate powers of prophecy and Cassie has a vision of the brutal death of her beloved older brother Dallas, she knows she must stop the killer and save her brother's life. Cassie’s bravery will be challenged at every turn, however, as lust, obsession and magic are tinder for the violent flames of war which threaten not only Cassie’s life, but her entire world.
About the author
Rebecca Ida Hertz was born and raised on the east side of Los Angeles and has written creatively since she was a small child. At the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts and then at Barnard College in New York City she studied playwriting and alternative narrative structures; she then studied writing for film in graduate school at the California Institute of the Arts. For the past twelve years, Rebecca has put her storytelling skills to work as a producer, director and writer of 'unscripted' television – most recently as the Co-Executive Producer of the comedic reality show, “King of the Nerds” on TBS. Her professional experience in the highly dramatic world of prime-time network & cable reality television has taught her how to create characters, suspense, how to stay up all night working to meet a deadline, and how to manage lots of very difficult but lovable people. In between shows, she spends her creative energy writing fantasy novels. Rebecca is also an accomplished cook, ceramicist, and outdoorswoman. @rebecca_megaHz
