The case plunges her into the midst of a powerful church family. Hirshel Lightner, the head pastor, tries to crush her investigation. Even worse, Jayden finds herself attracted to Hirshel’s son-in-law, Adam--a man who could be the killer. If Jayden isn’t careful, she might be the next victim.
It’s not like sixteen-year-old Nathan Terras wants to be evil. A bad boy, maybe—but not evil. Yeah, he can see auras but so what? He’d gladly trade that talent for, say, a new Mustang or a little skin time with Scarlett Johansson. That is until a near-death experience reveals he’s to become the Antichrist.
Forget vampires, werewolves, and zombies. They’re
the lucky ones.
And now his enemies are waking. They’re coming for him, and they’re not interested in a friendly game of Halo. But Nathan’s developing some frightening defenses of his own. A violent power grows inside him. He’d be thankful, if only the dark energy wasn’t so
When his little brother disappears, he’ll do anything to get him back. Embracing his new identity may save his brother’s life, but Nathan could lose his own in the process. The line between good and evil begins to blur, leaving Nathan wondering which side he’s on.
Chastity had the childhood most people dream about--in nightmares. After years of abuse by her father, one day he injures himself on a power saw, and Chastity
watches as he bleeds to death. She refuses to help. The ugliness of her past and this decision overwhelm her. Unable to talk about it, she stops talking altogether. Silence becomes her shelter.
Her luck seems to change when she meets Chuck, an aspiring cage fighter. At first, Chuck protects Chastity
and takes care of her. He even introduces her to the martial arts, and Chastity discovers another side to herself--a stronger side.
But after losing a big tournament, Chuck’s moods grow dark, and he becomes increasingly violent towards Chastity. Chastity will need all her fight training to survive, but if she does, it may give her the power to change everything.
