The Transcendent Green by Mati Ocha
Earth has ascended…
Magic tears through an unsuspecting planet of humans, bringing mythology and monsters to life—and providing humanity a chance to prove their mettle.
Old grudges die hard…
All Calum Green wants is to reach what remains of his family. Ninety miles of the Scottish Highlands stand between Calum and his family home in coastal Oban. He does not want to make that trek with his cheating ex-girlfriend’s bestie at his side.
Eilidh MacIntosh has always disliked Calum, and now she’s armed with a bloody claymore on top of her haughty disdain. But the ascension directive is clear: humans cannot survive this new world alone—and this pair makes an annoyingly good team.
With Calum’s magic and their combined bad luck, the unlikely duo accidentally trigger a rare ascension quest: to find the perpetrator of a dangerous, corrupt magic that could make all of humanity into an endangered species.
Contains strong language in the face of the end of the world. You’ve been warned.
