Book Previews - K.A.C. Book 1: In the Village of the Devil's Daughters

Welcome to an exclusive sneak peak at the audiobook version of my Christian (yet accessible and badass for everyone) dark fantasy/horror/mystery novel "Kill All Christians Book 1: In the Village of the Devil's Daughters".

This novel (currently available in both print and e-book format on Amazon) follows the exploits of Saint Sword Moon and his Dark Blood companion Fox as the pair are called to the Village of the Devil's Daughters to investigate the abduction of a child and the targeting of two others by a dybbuk demon.

Moon and Fox live in a world where all forms of Christianity (and indeed even those God based religions such as Judaism) have been outlawed with nearly every professor of the faith hunted down and slain without exception regardless of race, age, gender, orientation, identity, class, etcetera. In the entropic world that remains humans pay homage to the demon barons and warlords who have become Earth's new gods in the eyes of man.

As one of the few survivors and one of the fewer still possessing divine power, Moon must partner with Fox to investigate these demon abductions while surviving grim politic with the twin sisters Hellana and Amahli who serve as the goddesses of the village.

Can Moon and Fox save the children before its too late, or will they too fall prey to the deviltry in the village in the frigid mountains up above? Only time will tell.

Hope in Hopelessness

A lot of my narratives deal with protagonists in extreme or seemingly hopeless situations. I’ve been told by some that my narratives have perhaps dour sensibilities, and lean towards darker adventures and struggles for their heroes. The thing about the thing, as I like to say, is that while some of my narratives for older readers certainly fall into the “dark fantasy” genre, I prefer to view them as “Psalm 23 narratives”.

Psalm 23’s arguably most famous line comes from verse 4; “Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” I really like how verse 5 goes on to say “thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.”

The purpose of narratives like “Kill All Christians” and “Tribus Dulce” as well as several completed but not yet released novels is to take heroes who are in the midst of the valley of the shadow of death, or as John 1:23 says, “John replied in the words of Isaiah the prophet, "I am the voice of one calling in the wilderness, 'Make straight the way for the Lord.'"

Rejoicing is Hard...

Rejoice in the Lord always, again I will say rejoice. Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious for anything, but in all things by prayer and petition with thanksgiving present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me (God) or seen in me—put it to practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Sometimes, a lot of times, that’s easier said than done though. I’m a minister of the gospel, a knight of divinity, sixteen years a believer and nearly three years a minister and yet I still struggle with the peace that surpasses all understanding. More and more the world we live in is one in which I wonder, is there no love for, and of, Christ left? But I’m not here this Sunday to drive you into existential depression, no. I’m here this Sunday to give you the Jeremiah 29:11 promise.

Spotlight on Tribus Dulce

Available now on Amazon with a limited time sale price of $4.99 for the Kindle Edition!

What is it about?

The name Tribus Dulce translates to “Three Sweets”, and represents the distinct flavors of each short story in this novel. The first narrative carries the taste of “Bitter”, and follows the struggles of seventeen year old high school senior Abra Ostberg and her best friend Judith Lee. Abra has endured a violently abusive household at the hands of her father from the time that she was very small, and takes refuge in Judy’s house whenever the maelstrom of her life grows too much to bear on her own. Abra remains in this environment, hoping that by serving as a lightning rod of sorts she can protect her mother and younger brother, even though her mother has never intervened in her father’s abuse.

One night, Abra experiments with a drug known as Hyperion, and what follows is a whole new world of horrors as the drug awakens Abra’s latent power to World Walk into the depths of the soul.

What is it about?

Kill All Christians Book 1: In the Village of the Devil’s Daughters is a story about a young man named Moon and his dark blood companion Fox trying to survive in a world where all forms Christianity has been outlawed. 99.8 percent of Christians in the world were slaughtered in a three-month massacre known as The Liberation, and the world left behind is shaped by demons and their followers.
