From inside the flap

"What I am about to tell you is going to be difficult for you to understand, but it's going to be even harder for you to believe. I do not even know where to begin, but you need to at least know the basics. Fairytales are real, Monsters are real. Everything you've ever heard about magic, mythical creatures, and the supernatural is all true. It exists in a world beyond this one…"

When Nero Cassidy first heard these words, he couldn't believe his ears. After all, he was a normal teenager living in a normal city in America. But after only one week from hearing these words, Nero had battled nightmarish creatures, had befriended a little girl with the ability to appear and disappear at will, and had nearly been eaten by a carnivorous flower. It was enough for him to know that the yellow-eyed man, Soto, had not been lying.

Now Nero just hopes that Soto is mistaken about everything else, because if Soto is correct and Nero is the “Living Light,” Nero will never be normal again.

The Living Light (Excerpt)


Prologue

Fairytales are real. Monsters are real. Nearly every myth and legend about fanciful creatures, horrific beasts, magic and the supernatural are true. They exist and thrive in a world beyond our universe, in a place called Pantheya. The people of Earth have forgotten Pantheya since, over the centuries, forces beyond their comprehension have kept its existence quiet, stemming it from influencing our culture any further, but that influence is not gone.

In Pantheya, there is a story of a prophecy that has been passed down from generation to generation, a story of a child that will be born from what the ancients called "Living Light." It is said that this child will grow to be the deciding factor in what they referred to as the "Nechronos" or "Dark Times," though what role the child will play was always unclear.

Some say that the child will be the most powerful being that Pantheya has ever seen and will use his ability to awaken the ancient power known as the Knight of Ages, a weapon for good, constructed from the collected souls of those sworn to protect at any cost. It is said that once the Knight of Ages is awakened from its long sleep, it will cast evil from existence for all time.

Still others say that the child born from Living Light will be a force for the greatest darkness. Through his abilities as a terrible warrior, he will bring about the Nechronos, casting not only Pantheya but, Earth as well, into suffering and sorrow until the end of days. No one is certain which path is true but the time has come when they will discover the reality.

The following is the story of that child and, like many epic tales, it begins with a boy who has no idea how important he will be. However, unlike those tales, it begins in a place that no one could have guessed.
