In the 1930s, geophysicist Schufelt became obsessed with the LIZARD CITY, referred to in a Hopi legend and said to exist beneath Los Angeles.
Within the city lies a chamber with a tablet, upon which is written the Secrets of the Origins of Life. Whoever possesses the tablet will have the knowledge and power of God. The Los Angeles city council funded his search for the city. But just when Schufelt was about to reach his goal, he mysteriously disappeared.
Schufelt left behind a map. Both Sera and her enemy, Fabian Gore, have the map, and both are searching for the city. But Sera has a few aces up her sleeve.
She has the coordinates left to her by her father.
D 35; N 1; E 500; D 15; W10; S 237
And she is led, by an unlikely source, to the Book of Angels, which can only be read by the one who will become the 7th Angel, who will then have the power to open the door to the chamber.
Then, there is a young boy from the inner city who has a special gift for navigating the tunnels, and who attaches himself to Sera.
When Gore concocts a daring plan to kidnap the boy, Sera and the Night Angels must protect him, or he be lost to them forever, imprisoned in Gore’s sinister drug rehab center high above the Malibu coast, a places of padded cells, restraints and horrific medical experiments.

For centuries the “defense” of blind faith has driven nations to war, violence, discrimination, slavery, and to become the society of automatons that we are today; and for just as long, it has been justified with lies.
What would happen if someone discovered the Secrets to the Origins of Life and obtained the knowledge of God? Would this be a good or a bad thing? This is Sera’s dilemma as she follows where the Key of Mystery takes her… even to St. Catherine’s Monastery in the Sinai Desert, where the most Ancient One of all, Queen Ahhotep is kept prisoner in the Life Box. Who is feeding her power? If she escapes her revenge will be limitless. Truly, if she learns the knowledge of God, all will be lost.
The Night Angels are a group of five denizens who are deadly assassins and have been sent to protect Sera, the Keeper of the Key. They are ancient beings with horrific histories. Each one is over 500 years old.
Professor Strejan comes from the Carpathian Mountains in Romania.
Peter Hergovich is from Slovenia.
Marek is from Ethiopia.
Marianne is from Ireland.
Blanca is from Spain.

“Be careful who you love. It just might kill you.”
When Sera’s father is killed in a horrific accident, all he leaves behind is a mysterious key. Sera places the key on a chain around her neck and vows to avenge her father. Strange characters arrive in town, including the otherworldly Night Angels, who claim to be sent for her protection.
Sera falls hard for one of them–exotic, arrogant Peter. But what if his promise of love is only a ruse to gain access to the key? As Sera’s connection to the key grows, so do her supernatural powers. Guided by clues let by her father, Sera searches for the hidden chamber beneath the city, hoping to save what lies within before the sinister mayor and his deadly followers drown humanity in a bloodbath.
Key of Mystery, Book I in the NIGHT ANGELS CHRONICLES, is set to be released in February. More news on this as the date approaches. Published by Evernight Teen Publishers
I am the official Transcriber for the International Order of Denizens, or, the IOD. I have told many stories and they live inside my blood and flow throughout my body. This story, I was forbidden to tell, but I could not stop myself. It is my final illumination.
Sera! It is her story. It starts with an ending. With a death. But that death is also the beginning. I have followed after her, down every twisting pathway, and I have invoked her voice. That is my gift, or perhaps my curse, imparted in an age when words were believed to have power and the incanting of certain mantras could raise palaces or tumble mountains. Dawn and shadows, light and dark, strength and weakness. Is it not all beautiful? Is it not all painful? Will I not one day understand, when the Tablet is found and the Secrets to the Origins of Life is in my hands?
In Sera’s hands.
I speak with her voice. I love with her heart. I fear and I fight.
And I seek.
Sera Patterson, Keeper of the Key.
