Cross the Road
The fourth and final tale in the historical dark fantasy series The Time of the Phoenix, Cross the Road sees the immortal Phoenix traveling to 1930s New York in the wake of his friend’s death, seeking answers--and revenge.
It’s the 1930s and the being who was once Christopher Marlowe is in New York seeking answers—and vengeance. What he finds instead is a startling new style of music: the Delta Blues.
But will even pursuing this revelation to its source in the Mississippi Delta help the Phoenix find the answers—and the people—he seeks? Will he have his revenge?
And after all that, will he find a reason to keep on going? Or is this the end for the avatar of humanity’s creativity, once and for all?
