Demons ravage the town of Valera. The attacks are becoming ever more frequent, and the town militia can no longer hold them at bay. As panic reaches the highest appointed members of the Valerian Clergy, the young neophyte Jaxon Moore cannot stay idle any longer.

Their only salvation lies in Father Hampton’s aid, a renowned, demon-slaying priest with powers of the Light. The only problem is no one knows where to find him.

Jaxon sets off on a dangerous journey, not even knowing what Father Hampton looks like or where he’s supposedly found.

Is the Goddess to answer his prayers, or will his clergy be forever lost to the Darkness?

The Redeemed


The Light of Darkness


Novella prequel, #0.6

Outlaw. Thug. Enforcer. Assassin.

Many titles have been granted to Edric’s name throughout the years, more so than he’d care to admit.

Sold as a child to Raven, a cold-blooded mercenary, he’s been long since forsaken by both kin and comrades. A life by the sharp end of a knife is all that remains to him now, as part of the infamous thieves’ band – the Haunted Shadows.

With blood, terror, and death part of the band’s dishonourable trade, Edric is sent to plunder and kill, to satisfy Raven’s innate greed. He scours the capital of the Midlands for valuables, earning his daily keep, yet nothing he manages to bring is ever enough for the ruthless leader.

Raven wants more and forces his crew into an unforeseen direction, striking out against creatures more terrifying than death itself. Men are rattled to the core, and Edric’s fight for survival is wearing thin.

As he clings to life, he wonders how he is meant to go on? And, most of all, will it be worth the effort, to press on and endure? With darkness waiting to claim him, sorrow and despair are all Edric has left. For he seems to have been abandoned by the Goddess Herself.

The Path of Salvation


The Light of Darkness


Book 2

The stench of death within the interrogation cave no longer disturbs the High Priest. Nor do the wails and screams of the demons within.

 

He drives his priests with fanatic fervour to perform more hunts, get him more prisoners for his demonic experiments and slaughter any demon that gets in their path. Not even little demon children are allowed to escape his righteous wrath.

 

Watching her beloved Temple village transforming into an army training camp, Anaya finds herself increasingly torn. Especially since her past encounter with the elusive demon Samael has brought unexpected consequences to bear.

She seeks a course to deliverance, attempting to pave her own way through the blood and gore.

 

Back among his brethren, Protector Prime Samael, of the Panther Tribe is fighting his own battles. Breaking the rules and acting solely on instinct on a fated night has cost him dearly. A primordial bond now sings in his veins, and he fights against its unyielding call.

Torn in between resentment, desire and need, he must pave his own path, in pain, suffering and sorrow.

 

Past horrors returned to haunt the present, ancient prophecies brought to life, and in the centre of it all, two paths forged in both Darkness and Light.

Where will the Goddess lead them?

 

Note: The Path of Salvation is the second book in The Light of Darkness series and closely follows the events of The Power of Conviction. It shouldn't be read as a standalone.

The Resurgence of Light


The Light of Darkness


Book 3

Samael has most miraculously been saved from eternal darkness, and yet he teeters on the brink. The High Priest might be gone, but his terrifying taint still claws at the demon’s mind.

The Prime is struggling to resist the feral, unable to keep the state contained, while the priestess desperately searches for a way to aid him. But the taint is seemingly impossible to cleanse, and Anaya’s efforts only lead to more unanswered questions. To the point that she begins to place doubt in her prophesied fate.

Anguish engulfs the couple as they stand to face their most merciless challenge yet. While unrest abounds within the Panther tribe, foreboding rumours surface, threatening to end a centuries-old reign and bring the House of Fahd to its knees.

But the callous grip of peril is not limited to demons. In the wake of a madman’s quest for vengeance, the champions of Light are left adrift. The Priesthood is shattered, and the Temple village is left in ruins. The priests are lost in a world seemingly overrun by demons. As the survivors attempt to bring together what little forces they have, they know not where to turn.

Until they receive the most unlikely summons.

Note: The Resurgence of Light is the third book in The Light of Darkness series and closely follows the events of The Path of Salvation. It shouldn’t be read as a standalone.

Nefarious Echoes


The Light of Darkness


Book 4

Evil lurks in the shadows. More demon villages are left decimated, and the Panther tribe is torn apart.

In her new role as Matriarch, Anaya fights to keep the Panther demons united, yet trust seems impossible to gain. Especially as rumours surface about the death powder being a Priesthood tactic. Neither Samael’s strength nor the power of the House of Fahd seem to be enough to stem the Primes’ discontent.

Anaya must rally the priests, hunt down those responsible for the rising death toll of demons, and clear the Priesthood’s name.

Samael, in turn, must prove his worth to earn the respect lost when taking a priestess for his Consort. Not an easy task, when enemies seek to destroy the unworthy Matriarch and his illegitimate child.

Anaya prays for strength, and that the Goddess – or whatever She may be – would aid them in their peril. And yet, no reprieve is granted, for either demon tribes or Priesthood.

Will the Panther tribe stand strong under the House of Fahd? And will the Priesthood restore their tarnished name?

With yet another enemy lurking in the shadows, waiting for the perfect time to strike, the future could not be more bleak for priests and panthers alike.

Now more than ever, Light and Darkness must unite and stand firm against the terrifying dangers encroaching on all sides.

Will this be their final hour? Or will they prevail?


Note: Nefarious Echoes is the fourth book in The Light of Darkness series and closely follows the events of The Resurgence of Light. It shouldn’t be read as a standalone.

Wake of Sins


The Light of Darkness


Book 5

Treachery and defamation fuel the raging conflict between Light and Darkness, with trust a luxury neither human nor demon can afford.

The Unn have been captured, but they were just the means to an end. And the Priesthood is no closer to finding the one pulling the strings in the horrifying scheme of the death powder that has claimed countless lives in its wake.

Fearing the rise of a rogue clergy, the Priesthood leaves no stone unturned, regarding friend and foe alike as a potential suspect. Not even the King himself is deemed trustworthy, and an elaborate plot to infiltrate his castle is set in motion.

Anaya and Samael are struggling to piece together what is left of their shattered tribe by hosting the most prestigious games in panther tradition. The Obsidian Trials are their last hope of unifying their people.

But ruthless adversaries lurk in the shadows, ready to strike when the Panther tribe is at its weakest, and end them once and for all.

With their very lives at stake, will Anaya and Samael manage to unify the Panther tribe and save them from extinction?

And will the rogue priests and their employer be found in time, before all of demonkind is doomed?


Note: Wake of Sins is the fifth book in The Light of Darkness series and closely follows the events of Nefarious Echoes. It shouldn’t be read as a standalone.

The Thousand Year Divide


The Light of Darkness


Book 6

A king betrayed. A deadly powder in the hands of a merciless enemy. A ruthless mercenary Queen with an agenda of her own and an army ready to march upon the Midlands.

Alongside the Priesthood, demons are a formidable force. Still, not everyone wants to be affiliated with the terrifying creatures of Darkness. The allied tribes might be the final affront, sparking a war in the Midlands. Yet, demon tribes do not even offer mercy to each other.

The Obsidian Trials provide a unique opportunity for Anaya to earn the support of the Panther Tribe, but not all demons are willing to align their fate with a human priestess... unless she can prove she’s worthy of their trust.

The stakes are higher than ever. Anaya and Samael must stand strong, bring the Trials to a successful end, and prove themselves to the Demonic Council. All the while, they cling to a frail hope that their efforts have not been in vain.

With time fading and treachery lurking at every corner, prophecies unravel, and the lines between enemy and ally blur as never before. Priesthood, demons, and humans alike must trust one another or they will fail. Centuries of prejudice and strife are not so easy to set aside.

In a time when the Light needs the Darkness like never before, can humans and demons bridge the divide between them?


Note: The Thousand Year Divide is the sixth book in The Light of Darkness series and closely follows the events of Wake of Sins. It shouldn’t be read as a standalone.
