The Child of Chaos

Nothing can break the stranglehold the gods of Order have on the world . . . except a roll of the dice.

An irresistible longing drags young Galen to an ancient vault where, long ago, the gods of Order locked Chaos away. Chaos promises power to the one destined to liberate it, but Galen’s dreams warn of dark consequences.

He isn’t the only one racing to the vault, however. Horace, the bully who lives to torment Galen, is determined to unleash Chaos–and he might know how to do it.

Galen’s imagination always got him into trouble, but now it may be the only thing that can prevent Horace from unraveling the world.

“This is no ordinary sword and sorcery story. This is what fantasy fiction should be. [Glen Dahlgren is a] novelist who I think will become more widely known as his skill is appreciated.” –Piers Anthony. New York Times best-selling author of Xanth

The Devil’s Pit: Dark Paranormal Reverse Harem Prison Romance

The Devil’s Pit: Dark Supernatural Paranormal Prison Romance - ASIN B0896SJDRZ

A Vampire, a Shifter, and an Elemental walk into a bar…

Okay, I’m kidding. This isn’t the set up for some bad joke. This is the set up for my life in a world that has gone mad.

After my parents were murdered in cold blood, I took to the streets alone. I hid in fear of my life, keeping my head down and harnessing my powers. That only worked for so long. Eventually, I was caught and brought to the worst place on Earth…The Devil’s Pit.

It’s a supernatural prison camp with one purpose – to take advantage of and experiment on those gifted with supernatural abilities. Prisoners are nothing more than fleshy guinea pigs that are victims of assault, inhumane testing, psychological abuse, and eventually… execution.

If I’m going to survive this genocide, I’ll need help…And that’s where the Vampire, Shifter, and Elemental come in.

Zane, Gray, and Elliot are 3 bad and ruggedly handsome supernatural beings. They unlock something within me that I’ve never felt before and our bond is only growing stronger. With all four of us together, I think we have a fighting chance at surviving…

My name is Raven, and this is my story.

(LOCK DOWN ?: This 100,000 word supernatural prison reverse harem romance contains sizzling hot scenes, a 5-star story line, an HEA ending, and a stronger-than-life female protagonist.)

Only two weeks to get everything set. When the big night comes, bullets fly and friends become enemies. This job is going to end in a test of all Joshua’s skills, and a reckoning with all his demons.
