Wicked Sanctimony begins with the meeting of two sanctioned immortals, Esmeralda and Dabria. Esmeralda has a hunted air about her and Dabria, an archangel in the hierarchy of The Order, picks up on this immediately. It isn’t long before Esme admits that she, an Elder demon, and Damien Duquette, a former member of The Order, conceived twin children together: hybrids. Upon the revelation Dabria is faced with the challenge of deciding between the commitments of Guardianship or her steadfast loyalty to The Order…
Transitioning into Anise’s point of view, the reader is submerged into a world of conflict, fear, and revenge. The seventeen-year-old fostered girl only cares about one thing: avenging the death of her twin brother Jaime. Using her appointed job as exorcist of Dorian Grey Prep Academy, Anise plans to slowly butcher her way through the hordes of demons that feast on the thoughts and dreams of the unsuspecting student body to satiate her appetite for revenge- that is until she encounters an enemy of monstrous proportions. The Outcast.
Upon the revelation of this insidious faction of demons, Anise’s life is wrenched from beneath her fingertips. Relationships are torn, sanity is tested, and lies are revealed. Her quest for revenge is grated down into nothingness when she discovers that all of these years what she thought she knew was a lie…
Things get even more complicated when Anise meets the passionate, sexy archangel Dabria who seems more than ready to take a bullet to protect her. The two form a connection that makes them closer than lovers or friends. With a weakness like this, Anise is suddenly vulnerable to a plethora of enemies, some of which she is bound to by blood…
Interview with SaSchel ZygDeon
Why did you write the book?
I wrote Wicked Sanctimony to appeal to a greater audience of the oppressed or outcast of our society. I strongly believe in my religion and the equality of all people, racially and sexually. I wanted to do something that would hopefully benefit a few lives in the world today, stripping away the feel of controversy and secrecy that surrounds most things in the media today.
What was your inspiration for the book?
My inspiration for Wicked Sanctimony was the struggle with chronic asthma that I went through when I was younger. After the doctors told me that I could’ve died from my last attack I realized that I had a second chance that most people aren’t given. I decided then that instead of taking from the people around me, I would give back to them what they gave to me, hope and faith.
