Lex had been encouraged by the initial data he stumbled across. However, that had quickly turned to disappointment when he discovered polyandry was essentially illegal everywhere in the world. Was it practiced? Yes, especially in areas where resources or women, themselves, were scarce. Still, popular opinion was conclusively against it.
There was a time when polyandry was accepted as the norm. This custom was prevalent in antiquity, and was even practiced among Native American tribes. Unfortunately, in modern times, it seemed to survive only in Tibet and tribal cultures of Africa in the form of fraternal polyandry. And, though technically illegal, it was only tolerated due to necessity.
Lex scrubbed his face with his hands before dropping them onto his desk. It seemed we had things figured out in the beginning, only to let our egos push us into the dark ages. He shook his head, briefly closing his eyes, before reaching for his mug. Where’d the preposterous notion that multiple wives were able to handle sharing a single man, but multiple men were incapable of sharing a single woman come from? From the same place homophobia was spawned, I’m sure.
He snorted with disgust. I can’t believe people actually think men are incapable of caring for a woman with offspring from another man or various husbands. After all, this ideology is proven wrong daily. I mean, how many divorced parents are there in the world? A step-dad can, and does, provide as much as a biological father. How does that differ from having two male parents?
Taking a sip of his coffee, the thought of children dominated his mind. Well, if I married Tally, she’d become an Ackerman like Kode did, and we’d all have the same last name. At least, that would make things a little easier for our child. Lex snorted, and said aloud, “As if their parents having different last names would really be the reason our kid would struggle. Oh God, are we being selfish?”
Suddenly, Lex felt crushed by worry. Is it unfair to bring someone else, particularly a child, into this craziness? After all, we all know how difficult it is to be different. Have we not been persecuted for our lifestyle choices? His breathing grew more shallow and rapid. I don’t want anyone to feel the way I have, especially not my own baby.

Book One - REVIVED
I'm ready. I know I am, but… should I? Should I really be doing this? It was the question he worried the most about, feared even. My visions show things working out, but that doesn't mean much. I know from experience that I can't trust the reliability of my premonitions.
And, it was true; knowing the supposed future didn't offer any guarantees. If anything, it complicated things. Decisions could alter the outcome, changing how a premonition was ‘seen’ compared to how it realistically unfolded. That didn't mean the vision would be prevented, just modified. Sometimes, even with good intentions, a person could make a situation worse by trying to tamper with it. This was a flaw in his foresight; a flaw which Adam understood all too well.
“Have faith,” he whispered encouragement to himself. “Trust in the Creator.”
Adam delayed only a second longer before he traversed into the uncertain future, crossing the hidden divide; the fabric separating worlds. He moved from the shadows that paralleled the town, where unseen lives existed alongside unsuspecting, oblivious people. With his seemingly mundane act of taking one step forward, he effectively walked from myth to reality.
Book Two - UNVEILED
Realizing she was standing alone in an empty forest, Hannah had a moment of panic. “Oh, shit!” Looking around anxiously, she shouted, “Was I supposed to hold onto your hand? Because I didn’t.”
Before an answer could be given, she felt a vibration wash over her. The sensation grew and seemed to draw her into an unseen electrical field. The static charge made the hair on her body raise slightly. Oh, God!
The energy of the veil made her skin tingle and buzz. Wow! This is amazing, she thought, feeling exhilarated. Then, the world expanded around her, and she saw things that had been hidden only moments before.
