Three books in one:
The Dead Held Hands
The Machine
The Temple of the Exploding Head
Starfarers and explorers, the League settled on Kana thousands of years ago. They found it to be a paradise, a perfect, virtually uninhabited planet waiting just for them in the cradle of space. Lovely Kana … it was too good to be true …
But, all was not as it seemed.
Simmering beneath the ground was a demented god who had soaked Kana in blood for untold ages, luring in victims, lying to them, and rejoicing in their suffering as they died at the hands of his dark angels.
And there will be blood again … From his Temple in the ground, the Horned God stirs.
When Lord Kabyl of Blanchefort, a young man troubled by the weight of the world, dares give his heart to a girl from a mysterious ancient household, one that pre-dates the League itself, he comes to know the shadows of the past that hover over her.
He comes to know of the Horned God, and for love he is destined to face him. All roads lead to the Temple of the Exploding Head, a place of evil and death, rooted in the ancient past, but also tied to the distant future.
“We were evil once,” she said, “and the gods are still punishing us…”

 

Q & A With the Author:
1.       When did you write your first novel?
[Ren Garcia]    I wrote Sygillis of Metatron in 2007
2.       What drove you to write / why did you become an author?
[Ren Garcia]  I’m not sure anything in particular drove me to start writing. I had stories in my head, I wanted to get them out.
3.       How do you create your characters?
[Ren Garcia]  I don’t have a set way of creating a character. Sometimes I have a thought in my head, iced with a few details. Sometimes things from my life (childhood, college, etc) combine and out comes a character. On a few occasions, the needs of the story call for the creation of a character. That sort of thing.
4.       What is one thing you love about Fall / Autumn?
[Ren Garcia]  I I love windbreakers. I love wearing them, and Fall gives me the excuse to get them out again.
5.       Who is the person or group of people that most support you in your writing?
[Ren Garcia]  I really have no idea. My books seem to appeal to an eclectic group.
6.       What is your favorite Halloween Memory?
[Ren Garcia]  I’m pretty sure I saw Bigfoot on Halloween when I was a kid. We were going to the local graveyard—what we were going to do when we got there I can’t recall. But, as we approached, we all heard a terrifying cry. And then we saw it—a huge, lumbering
“thing” moving through the graveyard, headed towards the woods. Yeah, that made an impression to be sure.
