Book image did not loadFor years I have thoroughly enjoyed books that kept me up at night, reading way past the time when I should be sleeping.  I did have to work at 6am so it was not wise to read as late as 2am, was it?  No, but I love books that captivate me so much that I find my heart pounding at the thought of getting that story in my hands again as my eyes devour every precious word of the adventure I am being allowed to join.  I finally hit a point where I could not find a book that would keep me craving to learn more about the characters and story, so what did I do?  I decided to create one of those stories myself.  I dove in and here I am on the fifth book of The Divine Series.  

About my book:

I wanted to be unique in the magic I create so I designed a system where the power source is deadly to those that use it.  I call it The Divine.  It's an ancient energy that very few can feel, much less wield.  As time moves on, those that can use this powerful force are slowly dying off.  To make matters worse, there is an unknown hunter that is searching out and killing those that can still channel the Divine.  My main character, Kade, finds himself in peril, but with a deadly dragon and a very beautiful Essence Guarding at his side, he may just have a chance at survival.  I do not want to spoil the book for those that want to read it, so I will not give any more details, but for anyone that wants a taste of my style of writing, I would suggest going to Amazon and reading the first few chapters for free.  I have discounted the first book so people can see if they like what they read before diving into a series that will be expanding for years to come.  

From the back of the book:

Kade looks up at his executioner with no fear or hate, watching . . .waiting. At six months old, he could hardly do much more as his grandfather agonizes over the task of taking the life of his only grandson.

Born with the rare ability to control the Divine, Kade has the potential to become one of the most powerful Chosen to ever exist. Taken from his parents at the age of ten by his grandfather, a Master Chosen, Kade is taught to harness the power of the Divine for good. After a decade of training, Kade learns the harsh reality of the dangerous world he is about to be thrust into, as his Master is brutally murdered right before his eyes. Kade soon realizes he is next.

With the help of a dragon, a species thought to have been a myth, and a feisty Essence Guardian, Kade must discover who – or what – is trying to eradicate his kind, before the Chosen are brought to extinction.

P.S.  I must give one warning.  My story can be bad for those that have a weak heart and for those that prefer to sleep at night.  Enjoy!
