Synopsis, and Story Arc. Warning: adult content.
While observing evolution and creation, the Archangel is intrigued by sex. “As a salamander; I slid into a river between a man and a virgin.”
Stunned by what he has done he hides in clouds. A millennium later still in prehistoric times he is commanded to return to earth. From the peak of a cliff, he observes a tribe of people taking shelter in their caves from winter storms. He's ready to fly away when lured by the beauty of a marsh on the underside of the bluff; An enchanted garden he calls his paradise.
Decades later a virgin, escaping a ritual runs into his paradise and a Celestial voice demands, “Take your Eve.” After they make love, he's damned for eternity. His name becomes Ayekah, (Biblical of "where are you") her’s Haya, (eve). Her clansmen find them but takeoff terrorized by the "winged man." She demands, “Take me back to my people” and “Use wings,” Ayekah refuses.
Abandoned, a damned angel to be eternal without a soul, takes off to explore the word but unable to live without her he returns. Haya becomes admired and even feared by her clan. Biblical. Ayekah learns that Haya has extraordinary powers and a link to an invisible being called the Mardi (shepherdess) and a purpose to fulfill. When she returns to Ayekah, her tribe accepts him, and he becomes an integral part of their development, but he is enraged when Haya wants the first born to every virgin be from the winged man. "I will not violate Holy Creeds again." But Haya tells him how to inseminate the virgins without having sex with them.
From Haya and other virgins, the first generations of Angel/ humans are born. On her hundredth birthday, Haya dies from pregnancy. She requests for Ayekah to take her unborn fetus and put her in an alabaster box he made for her. Ayekah follows her wishes after entering her in the crypt he makes inside the cliff above his paradise.
Ages later he roams the earth as a woman or man. He repeatedly begs The Almighty for forgiveness but when not, he seduces other angels into relations with women. The almighty tries to wipe out the human/angel brethren with a great flood but the Dragon of Eternity saves many. After roaming the earth again, Ayekah returns agonized by Jesus's crucifixion. He finds Haya in her crypt but as if she were still alive.
In 1858, Ayekah, in Haya’s crypt, hears a voice that sounds just like Haya's. He takes wing to find the voice and sees a girl that looks just like Haya. Thus, begins book two, Virgins.
