S.J. McMillan “City of Gods: The Descendant” Book Signing May 11 at Library Station

Author S.J. McMillan will sign copies of her book “City of Gods: The Descendant” from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 11, in the Library Station foyer.

Ancient and modern worlds collide in this urban fantasy novel. In 700 A.D. Teotihuacan, Mexico, the High Priest believed himself to be as powerful as the Gods. He set a plague on the city as a demonstration of his power. The Gods took pity on the remaining loyal congregation. They granted each survivor immortality and an extraordinary ability. Three loyal survivors were given a mission of great importance: train the lone human descendant of their civilization to stop the evil priest from damning the rest of humanity.

Now in San Diego, Calif., the time has come to finally make Katalina Deckard aware of her destiny. Her life has been a constant struggle since the loss of her parents when she was young. But has it prepared her to save the world?
