In the age-old battle between good and evil, who ya gonna call?
Imagine a bold world in which descendants of an ancient mystical order secretly struggle to keep the forces of darkness at bay, utilizing every means and device at their disposal. Magic, mystery and strange technology beckon from beyond the limits of history and belief.
Three stories of power, love, and pivotal decision from the world of The GrailChase! Chronicles. Before the Chase introduces Alessandro, Jordan and Sophia, as they make the choices that will forever change the future.
I like to characterize my stories as "The DaVinci Code meets Steampunk, with Herbert's Dune flavor crystals thrown in for extra conspiratorial yumminess." These 3 stories are the prequel to my GrailChase Chronicles series, that will kick off this fall.
This series is a twenty year long labor of love that I am finally readying to unleash upon an unsuspecting humanity. The series is an epic metaphysical romp through a possible alternative history of Christendom, in which Jesus did not die on the cross, but rather, like in Scott Brown's "The DaVinci Code" fathered a family with Mary Magdalen.
The GrailChase! Chronicles revolve around the fundamental ethical question:
What would happen if an aristocratic Victorian douchebag discovered he was the descendent of Christ & had super powers, which he had to choose to use to help save humanity or use for his own selfish goals?
that's right out of Plato's Republic for you philosophy wonks out there
(and you know who you are!), but with a whole lot more sexy,
Steampunky, heretical fun!
