Blood of Angels

cover

A present-day young adult urban fantasy romance adventure novel where vampires, werewolves, mermaids, witches, seers, shapeshifters, angel-like beings and other supernatural beings exist, roaming freely in our midst, engaging in a secret paranormal warfare that threaten world peace.

SUPERHERO — that’s what the dorky sixteen-year-old orphan, Hope Danielles always wanted to be. Ten years after her father left and witnessing her mom killed, it seems she is finally getting her wish.

One strange day filled with dreams and visions, while trying to help someone she doesn’t even know, Hope was nearly killed. Coming to her rescue was the mysterious cafe customer, who right in front of her transformed into a being with black and white wings like that of an angel. His name? Ashbel Saunders. He says he’s an ELIOUD, a descendant of the Nephilim — meaning he’s part angel and part human. And according to him, SHE IS, TOO!

In order to protect Hope, Ash keeps her in his care, until they find out who is behind the attack. But the longer she stays with him, not only does she meet more eliouds like her along the way, she also gets more entangled in the web of strange events unfolding, the more she discovers her abilities, the more dangerous things become, and the more they realize it’s not just their lives at stake but others’ as well. Will they be able to save those people while they too are on the run? Will this be her chance of becoming a superhero? Or will she be the one who needs saving this time?

In the MacGyver challenge, their neighboring town is being overrun by a rare colony of Egyptian Gas Ants. Will you be able to build a mechanism to deliver the antidote from the lab surviving a 6-foot drop?

The missions are standalone activities that provide just enough information and reference all the relevant resources to complete. Give your children permission to succeed or fail on their own merit. They’ll have fun doing it and feel a real sense of pride and accomplishment at the conclusion. Technology use is minimal and if included is only for mission planning. We crafted the tone and language of the individual missions for boys but there is no reason girls can’t take part. Most of the missions would be relevant and interesting for boys and girls alike.

While the cadet is completing the missions, they are earning Man Points. At the conclusion of the missions if they’ve earned enough points they qualify for the Celebration of Man, a fun-filled event to reward their achievements.

The Android Sisters: Volume 1: Identity Crisis

cover

All androids are not alike. Especially if they’re teenagers…
By the 2070’s, most humans have interacted with androids in either a servile or sexual relationship. Dr. Bryan Galloway wants to tip the scales. So, he’s engineered two sisters who not only share a synthetic form of DNA, but a sentience and individualism no android has enjoyed before.
Like human teens, the android sisters develop not only by nature but by nurture. For Nyx, the red-eyed robot finds life to be a journey you experience a step at a time. For Dayna, the violet-orbed android, she sees life as a game to be won through emulation and manipulation. But Nyx’s journey is a whole lot less passive than she imagined, especially when she suffers bouts of what humans call PTSD.
As Nyx becomes convinced her programming is unable to separate past from present and reality from virtual experience, she begins to doubt her creator Bryan Galloway and his sudden disappearance from her life now that she faces school, boys, and the pressure of planning a future in a still very dominated human population.

Is Nyx defective, or maybe this is what it’s really like to grow up as a human female. Perhaps, there is a third alternative she and her sister know nothing about…

The Monster

cover

Josh Soule’s premiere thriller, The Monster, follows the psychological decline of a nameless narrator who tells his tale of being stalked and framed by a local serial killer. His relationships with friends and family deteriorate, and he soon is required to fend for himself. As days tick by, the time must come to find his way out of this problem before he ends up in prison or worse…

The Monster follows a young college student who has strained relationships with his mother, best friend, and ex-girlfriend. When an attack from an unknown puppet-themed assailant at a Halloween party leaves the protagonist seemingly at fault, he decides to flee rather than face consequences.

This starts a chain reaction of bad luck for the protagonist, who soon finds himself the perceived perpetrator of more crimes committed by the now titled “Puppet Man”.
The clock is ticking before the protagonist finds himself in jail or dead, unless he can clear his name before it’s too late.

The Treasure of Capric

cover

A fabled treasure disappears.

Can a failing order of warrior-monks stop a tyrant from gaining ultimate power?

When he was seven years old, Kurian Abramson entered training with the legendary Capric Monks, vowing to protect the Capric Treasure with his life. But he doesn’t know what he’s guarding. The treasure veiled in prophecy is a mystery even to the monks.

Every day of Kurian’s youth swings between brutal combat training and quiet study of the Order’s religious teaching. He knows the withering monastery doesn’t live up to the heroic legends he heard as a boy. But he longs to prove he’s worthy of the honor that protecting the treasure still affords.
But when an ambitious, tyrannical noble razes the monastery, they discover that the treasure is missing. Kurian must get it back or lose everything he trained for.

The only clue points to an outlaw known as the King of the Caves.

Guided by a female spy with a secret and hunted by the noble’s top officer, Kurian’s journey becomes a race that pits him against soldiers, witches, and deadly mythical creatures. His quest will test his training, friendships, and faith.

Can Kurian restore the treasure? Or will his world fall under the curse of 1,000 years of darkness?
Brandon M. Wilborn’s debut novel combines the high epic fantasy of JRR Tolkien with the deep allegory of C.S. Lewis to craft a compelling new coming of age fantasy full of adventure and steeped in values of enduring friendship and rediscovering purpose.

Readers have likened it to the epic heroes quest of JRR Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, and the magical sword and sorcery of Terry Brooks’ Sword of Shannara Trilogy or The Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson.
