Overview

Tucked away in the corner of an ancient Turkish church, a desecrated painting marking a smoke-scarred wall reveals a little-known Apocrypha foretelling the coming of an anointed one who will be gifted with the one divine Grace elusive to all other Nephilim: The Seventh Grace. So when Jacob is witnessed to heal with just a touch of his hand a fellow Nephilim who is wounded one day at Lions Bite, Eden is turned on its head, forcing Anahel to convene an emergency meeting of the White Circle. Could Jacob actually be the Light Bearer who is prophesied to mend the divide between man and angel and deliver a mortal wound to the

Darkness before the Last Great War between good and evil is waged? And, if so, how could such a thing be possible when the prophesy has long been believed to have perished with the tragic death of Gotham's son? With skeptical eyes firmly fixed on him, Jacob is put to the one test to prove beyond a doubt he is indeed marked by such a weighted destiny, and no one is more conflicted by the prospect than the mighty Gotham, himself, as the boy 's position between the Light and the Dark becomes more precarious. He knows it won't be long before the evil forces of the Underneath turn their twisting sights on Jacob, and sure enough a dark, slithering presence lurking deep within the forbidden Silent Forest proves him right. It will be, however, the unexpected traitorous act committed within the walls of Havenhid that will threaten the existence of Eden itself, when a brazen attempt is made to lay claim to the one and all-powerful weapon destined for the hand of the Light Bearer: the Sword of Destiny.

About the Author

August Arrea avoids the spotlight with the same aversion as a vampire does to the sight of the approaching dawn. As a 3rd generation American of European decent, he also has had the good fortune to be born with a name with strong ties to history and cultural heritage over many generations. On the other hand, such names can be a real chore since they are typically an alphabet soup of what often appear to be conflicting letters that don't seem to belong, sprinkled with connecting vowels. As such, he has had to, at times, spend a wearisome part of his life correcting what seemed to be a never ending mass of people, unable to pronounce, spell or even translate his name correctly; even on official documents. For these two reasons, during the process of turning his attention to writing this series of books, he has embraced the christening and adoption of this new and simple pseudonym.

Moniker aside, over the course of the last 25 years, this limelight dodger with a "speed bump" for a name, first made his mark writing as an award-winning journalist who loved uncovering the gems of stories hidden in plain sight on Any Street, U.S.A. He eventually turned his skills of mining for stories by drilling into the unexplored caverns of his imagination; the 'Tales of the Nephilim Brotherhood' series is comprised of the core samples of his quarry expedition.

Today, he is still a working journalist by trade with a national newspaper company. He lives in California's central valley where spotlights are rare, but the butchering of his name remains an inescapable, yet pardonable occurrence. When he's not writing, you'll likely find him with his best girls: two Australian Shepherd sisters named Gracie and Ember with whom he has absolutely no shame in readily admitting he engages in baby talk and the occasional slobbery smooch on the lips.
