Legend of the Black Panda

The legend speaks of two sons, born of the same bloodline, but destined to walk different paths.  One would be born and choose the darkness, and so, the other must choose the light.  Ursus, the first born consumed by hate, seeks to end the life of his opposite, Jai-Den.  Will the elder destroy all others and become like a god, or can Jai-Den fulfill his destiny and end the war?

Murder has become practically extinct in a world armed with the knowledge that those who are murdered will return from the dead to take the lives of those guilty…

But within a new world comes a new kind of killer. And he must be stopped! From the writer and creator of the Wonderland trilogy and Fly comes a return to the horror that never sleeps.

The first volume of The Waking was such a big hit, that a follow-up was inevitable.  With the dead coming back to avenge themselves, it’s pretty much made homicide detectives obsolete.  Which is exactly where Vanessa Pelagreno finds herself now, years after her initial involvement, only her problem is much bigger...
