Notna brings readers a story of angels, demons, and a war for our planet with a touch of aliens and archeology in the mix. Jackson “Jack” Corbett and Cassandra Federov are both professors at Texas A&M who enjoy archeology, though thus far, they haven’t “hit it big” in terms of funding. Then a representative from the Smithsonian recruits them to find the legendary Gem of Notna, an alien weapon of immense power with a prophecy attached.
But Jack, Cassandra, and their allies aren’t the only ones searching for the gem. They are opposed by the current leader of the Underworld and his vampire rival, along with a handful of nasty monsters brought up from the Underworld to wreck havoc and stop the prophecy from coming to pass.
