Today’s Secret: There is a Latin prayer that takes place: Spiritus, convenientibus terra viventium. Restitue animam et corpus. Benedictus in sæcula. Gratia. Misericordia. Amor.

Roughly translated it means: Spirit, join the land of the living. Restore the body and the soul. Blessed forever. Love. Grace. Compassion.

(I don’t want to spoil anything for you following along!)

Today’s Song: If there is one song that would be “Starling’s Song” My Immortal would fit the bill. Starling was an incredible character to create. In trying to empathize with her struggles I would listen to this song while writing.

Today’s Secret: Asclepius’s confession about his history, in which Zeus kills him for the resurrection of Hippolytus, is true. Artemis paid Asclepius to raise her lover. You can learn more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asclepius

Epione and Asclepius were married in Greek mythology. They had nine children together: six daughters and three sons.

Today’s Song: You are going to love this song! I don’t think it needs much in the way of introduction, but it certainly epitomizes Asclepius and his wife.

Today’s Secret: I love Latin. Often in my books I use the language to hide clues for my readers!

When Starling visits the cemetery she is met with a headstone that reads, “Avi Mortem.”  In Latin, this means Bird of Death. If you know the secret, it can change your reading of the book.

The Catharterian’s motto: Mortem. Genus. Honor.

Translates to: Death. Family. Honor.

Today’s Song: This song was the theme of a chapter following the introduction of the Avi Mortem archangel (no spoilers here)!
