Revenge of the Rephaim is the third book of the Newstead Saga, which picks up right where Bashan Agenda leaves off. Joel is in Versailles, and so is Rachel. But they're not the only ones. Marcus has arrived and is there to claim what he thinks is his. With his presence, Rachel has no choice but to tell Joel what happened to her in Wilson. The effect is just what Bashan had hoped. They have their Rephaim, and he will have his revenge.

For years, Erron has been running from the ones who have slaughtered his family. With his abilities it's been easy. Until Willow. It turns out caring about someone has it's costs. He's no longer uncatchable.

Nathan's truck eventually stops in the small town of Wilson, NY, and Rachel's still in it, not that she wants to be. But she figures at least in Wilson she'll be able to have a fresh start.
She forgot one thing: they can be anywhere.

As Joel trains with his father, doubts begin to rise in his mind. Is he really who he claims to be--and more importantly does he have an agenda all his own? When the maps to Bashan come out, Joel realizes maybe it's not such a good idea to be putting so much trust in one man. 

The Bashan Agenda


Joel Cranston thinks he’s the luckiest guy ever. He's just been recruited to Newstead, a blue-chip private school, while he's still a junior. Deep down he knows there has to be a catch. And there is. Newstead didn’t pick him because he’s lucky. They picked him because they know something he doesn't: that he's either exactly what they need to complete their plans of world domination, or he's the biggest threat they've ever known.

Revenge of the Rephaim

What will it take to survive as one of the last remaining humans in a world now controlled by the Nephilim? Who can Liz trust--Dan, on whom she has set all of her hopes and dreams for the last ten years, or the sullen new boy, Shem, who warns her everything she believes is a lie?
