Shelfari edited the description of Winged Descent Friday, July 13, 2012.
Winged Descent is centered around three very different people whose lives intertwine without warning when mythology and reality collide in a small town in South Carolina. Kendrick is a direct descendant of the god Apollo, and the future ruler of his planet, Centaura. He is one of a mixed breed comprised of centaur and human, and has just arrived to Earth with others of his kind. His race is intent on finding human mates after discovering they cannot reproduce with one another. Savannah is the owner of a beachside shop that caters to tourists in Folly Beach. Her life is forever changed when she takes a walk on the beach one morning and meets Kendrick, a person she never dreamed could have existed. Conner is a high school English teacher in Atlanta who has been Savannah's best friend for the past six years. He looks forward to spending every summer vacation with her, but discovers that this will be no ordinary summer when he sees that Savannah already has a houseguest- one who Conner immediately dislikes and distrusts. Relationships are threatened, lives are thrown into upheaval, and the battle for the right to be on Earth ensues as the centaurs find that the decision to come to Earth is not without its consequences. Told from all three characters' viewpoints, Winged Descent brings the ancient mythical battle between the Centaurs and the Lapiths to the modern world.
