Rahotep (published by Igneous Books)
Rahotep is one of the last ones, a reptilian shapeshifter born in the Year of the Dragon thousands of years ago. On a rainy night in modern-day Seattle, he encounters a beautiful woman who is the spitting image of his greatest love, his long-dead wife from ancient Sumer.
Centuries of battle have humbled Rahotep into living in a remote mountaintop cabin away from everyone. Now, this strange woman invites him out into a world that has changed… and into a horrific conspiracy that is hunting down the very last supernatural beings on Earth. As Rahotep struggles to understand what part she plays in this–and why she so startlingly resembles his beloved Nelia–he begins gathering what remains of his old allies to uncover the truth.
A new enemy has arisen, but they never dealt with a creature like Rahotep. And they will soon learn the terror that lurks behind the warning scrawled on ancient maps: HERE THERE BE DRAGONS.

As Rahotep and his allies race to solve the mystery, a darker conspiracy begins to emerge. More than one faction has mysterious designs on the Egyptian, and a war in the deepest shadows is brewing. Rahotep and Jane soon realize that their fates are linked to a threat far beyond anything they have experienced, and that humanity’s fate may well hang in the balance…
