Soul Dark – Chosen
“The quintessential story of good versus evil, heaven and hell, light against the darkness. Demons, goddesses, druids, a fantasy world set in modern times.”—Vickie Chaisson, Goodreads Reviewer
Lukas Reid is a good-natured, 15-year-old farm kid. He loves his little brother and his parents, and he does okay in school. But he has issues. He can’t understand why the neighbor girl looks at him that way. He sees visions of places far and near in the now and in the past. And in his free time, he practices magic—gifts handed over for 10,000 years in a Druidic tribe that serves an ancient Goddess. Lukas just wants to figure it all out, to just be a normal kid, but…
War is coming between Lukas’ Goddess and an ancient Demon Lord. But the death of his parents shakes his faith, and with the loss of his remaining family it is shattered. Blinded by rage, Lukas turns away from his friends and trains under a deceptive, yet formidable master to hone his magic and prevent the demon’s final objective--obliteration of all life on earth.
War begins! A forged weapon, Lukas rejoins his friends and sets after the Demon King. From a hidden crypt, where evil lies waiting, to the Iowa countryside, they battle to prevent the end of all they know. Lukas must overcome his doubts and allow the Light to work through him--to defeat both the foe of his Goddess and a new more familiar one.
Soul Dark: Chosen is a coming of age tale in the modern-day world when a war between ancient deities and demons culminates in a winner-takes-all battle that could determine the fate of all mankind.

Together. Having lost numerous friends, associates, and even children from our home town over the years to suicide, we wrote Upon Broken Wings. Told from the point-of-view of a young witness, the story teaches that suicide is not an end to suffering, but rather the beginning of unimaginable pain for those left behind and that there is always hope if we choose the path of life.
