TheMoreSupernatural, Adventure, Romance, Young AdultSince the creation of men and angels, the light has battled against the darkness. This struggle gave rise to The Chosen, human beings gifted with one of three divine gifts to aid in the war for souls. The Key of Ages, composed of the thirty pieces of silver Judas was paid to betray Jesus, is destined to tip the scales of the war in either direction, because it unlocks the beginning of the end. Only a member of The Chosen who wields the gift of light can purify the key. Judah Cross was the last warrior brave enough to attempt the task, but he only managed to retrieve one of the thirty pieces before his mysterious disappearance sixteen years ago. Falyn Cross sent her daughter Haven away when she was only six, because her lineage made her a target. Ten years later, shes forced to return home with every devil in Hell hot on her heels, and a destiny to fulfill.-Excerpt-I cast my eyes to the sky. Sure enough, it had darkened even further. That darkness was now accompanied by swirling, gunmetal-gray clouds and flashes of lightening. “Storms coming,” I said by way of explanation. If the storm had been predicted by the local weatherman, that would also explain why everything looked so deserted.“Sure is, Rookie, but not the kind of storm that youre thinking of.”“Rookie?”He sighed in exasperation as if he was a long-suffering algebra teacher explaining how to solve for X to a room full of kids fresh from summer vacation. “Get in the truck.”I stopped walking altogether. “U-um, excuse me?”“You heard me, Rookie. Now, get in the truck before you get yourself killed. We dont have a lot of time.”I was sure that, by this point, I was staring at him like hed lost his mind. Hadnt he? Or did he think Id lost mine? What else would have been the explanation for me actually agreeing to get into a truck with a stranger. “Im not going anywhere with you! I dont even know you, Buddy.”“Sol,” he said offhandedly, with a glance at the watch on his wrist.“Huh?”“Names Sol, not Buddy. You getting in, or what?”“No! I just told you that.”“Suit yourself,” he said as if he didnt care one way or another, and then began driving away.Well, that was weird, I thought as I continued my trek home, my nose now polluted with the copious fumes from his exhaust pipe. What was he going on about anyway? Half a mile or so down the road, I felt a fat drop of moisture land squarely on the tip of my nose. “Ugh!” I groaned. This day was just getting better and better. I pulled the hood of my sweatshirt over my head, and swiped the back of my hand across my nose to remove the offending droplet. Just before my hand moved out of my peripheral vision to return to its place at my side, I noticed a black sheen smeared across it. More droplets vacated the sky, and I extended my palm in front of me out of curiosity. My eyes widened when instead of clear droplets of water hitting my skin, a puddle of inky black began to form in the center of my palm.I shook my hand toward the ground, but the inky liquid began to congeal into a sticky sludge. A blood-chilling, animalistic shriek came from overhead, causing me to rip my hood back, and turn around to gaze at the sky. I squinted against what was now pretty much a downpour of the black sludge, and gasped at what I saw.-End of Excerpt-
