BOOK ONE – THE FALL OF LUCIFER
Throughout history, Lucifer has been heavens favourite Prince, the devoted and gifted angel. Until Yehovah announced his praised creation, a creation unlike angels. A race created of a 300 billion DNA sequence that generate a human being. A new race is born. To Lucifer’s horror, Yehovah has included his own gene into the race. Why should they?
BOOK TWO – MESSIAH
Jesus is about to be born which was Yehovah's plan to save the sins of the world by his own son. Lucifer realises that the star shining in the sky is a sign of Yehovah’s plan to save the Race of Men. Lucifer puts the Messiah to the test with 40 days and 40 nights of trial. Lucifer hopes to win the battle in this chilling, mouth-open-wide cliff hanger.
BOOK THREE – SON OF PERDITION
The Son of Perdition is a character-driven drama about three brothers from the inordinately wealthy Illuminati family, set against the backdrop of the Angelic and the vast landscape of the events in The Book of Revelation.
BOOK FOUR – A PALE HORSE

Featured Video Transcript
“The dark imperial figure stood on a ragged outcrop beneath the towering granite slopes of Saint Michael's mound. His indigo cloak billowed in the violent gales that blew up from the raging winter storm of the English Channel. ‘Our father...,’ Lucifer murmured his soft cultured tones barely audible. A bolt of lightening flashed illuminating the soaring pyramidical mound crowned by its medieval castle. ‘Who art in heaven...’ The heaven's opened and a driving, lashing rain hammered down. Lucifer inhaled deeply and raised his hands in exhilaration to the darkening skies, six monstrous black serried wings rose behind him. ‘MY KINGDOM COME!’” “His will be done,’ a soft voice echoed from behind him. ‘Michael’, he murmured, his back to his brother. ‘You are late.’”

For Previous Books in the Chronicles
“A plot that leaves the Da Vinci Code in the shade.” – G.P.Taylor, Bestselling Author.

What Real Readers Have Said
“The lavish descriptions of Heaven, the universe and all the angelic hosts are captivating and the story centered around the breaking of the brotherhood between Gabriel, Michael and Lucifer is a really unique take on what could have happened before our world.

“If you like well written books you must give this a chance. I came across it by fluke and have since bought it for 3 of my friends. Please do not be put off by its religious theme. I am not and my friends who have read this are from no denomination to Muslim and they are all taken by it. This shows the skill of story writing when it transcends both heart and mind.” – RS, review from Eden.co.uk
“This series has me hook, line and sinker. I can't wait for book three and feel that I am actually involved in the story. It has gained my total attention and I must say the story, although slightly biblical, this does not detract from an Outstanding story. This will end up being a fabulous film, this I am sure of.” – Abbi J D, review from another retailer.
“Be prepared for your eyes to be opened and your thoughts and opinions challenged as you read this book!” – Winsome, review from another retailer.
“I quite literally could not put it down and read it from cover to cover in about 4 hours one evening.” – Jailbird, review from another retailer.
EDEN ARTICLE: THE CHRISTIAN FANASY FICTION GENRE
There have been plenty of objections to the whole idea of Christian fantasy fiction, probably because of the tag ‘fantasy’. Perhaps a title less likely to provoke this reaction would be ‘fiction of the imagination’. But then isn't’ all fiction imaginary? The stories Jesus told are essentially fiction – a fiction made in God’s mind. The tales we tell our children – from Aesop to Grimm to Hans Christian Anderson to Disney , and dare we mention the name ‘Harry Potter?) are equally fictions of the mind – they are all fantasies. Fantasies are made real in the minds of the readers, and it’s here that meaning, relevance and application to life is also made real.
The stories of Jesus and of Aesop have obvious application and contain obvious truth, wisdom and application. But that’s only because we know how to read them. If they contained any falsehood or words and teachings out of tune with our knowledge and experience of God, we would spot them for the lies they were. And even in the stories of Disney, Blyton, Rowling, Pullman and G P Taylor if we spotted a falsehood we’d be quick to reject it no matter how good or popular the story. Though in a way, all stories deal with falsehood. There is always a misunderstanding, a lie, a misleading or a mistake that must be uncovered, fought against, defeated or resolved before the tale is done. Story tellers from ancient times have always known that this is the best way to test and prove the power of truth. This is just what happens in fantasy sagas like Wendy Alec’s ‘Chronicles of the Brothers’ and in this ‘Pale Horse’ novel.
The problem – and it’s more a feature than a problem, is that fantasy deals with the most profound misunderstandings, lies, misleadings and mistakes. It deals with the very source of real evil. This often means naming the root of that dark power – Satan himself. But in Christian fantasy, the source and power of real goodness, truth and grace is also named – God the creator spirit and father as revealed in the man Jesus, his son. Christian fantasy fiction brings this epic battle into the minds of its readers. It makes the differences between God and Satan real. In the minds of those who understand the language and imagery of fantasy fiction, the message is clear, the truth obvious and its application imperative.
Christian fantasy epics, like ‘Pale Horse’ and the other books in the ‘Chronicles of the Brothers’ series offer a direct route for taking the gospel and delivering it into the homes and hearts of fantasy fans. Christian fantasy fictions are not books about evil, they’re books about he fight against and ultimate defeat of evil in the name and power of Christ. Rather than reject the genre, Christian writers and givers of Christian books, should embrace the opportunity to deliver their message to a wide and growing audience. If there’s a fear that fantasy readers might not ‘get it’, the answer is not to hold back with the books, but to go forward with the real, living examples of Christian truth. To set before readers the example of Christians who claim and live out the principles promoted in the novels, who show the nature of Christ in their relationships, who know the power of God’s Word and who turn stories into faith into fact. – Les Ellison
