I’m glad you took a moment to drop in on me. Slow down and rest for a moment. Have a glass of sweet tea. I live in Texas now, but I’m originally from Alabama. I don’t know that tea comes any other way but sweet in Alabama. I lived on the Alabama coast growing up, so I forever love the water. I’ve always found being near it seems to bring a calm. Maybe it’s the same for you, or maybe something else gives you calm. As busy as things get, it’s hard to find a moment to breathe sometimes. I get it. I have two kids and a husband who keep everything busy as well. I understand a full day of work, rushing to get the kids, and making it in the knick of time for that school activity. It’s hard to just be still sometimes. So I know what it is taking for you to do that right now, because I know how busy your world probably is. I really am glad to meet you today. I hope the time spent will be well worth it as we travel together. I am enjoying this journey, as I have begun telling this story. I have fallen in love with the characters (well, you’ll see the ones I mean), and I hope you will do the same. Their battles at first look different in their worlds than ours. They are full of spaceships, photon tanks, and sunspears, but the internal battles are the same as we find ourselves in each day. Come to think of it, I’m not sure the weapon of choice has changed either to win some of the battles. See what you think. Enjoy the journey with me. Drop in anytime you need to stop and talk. I’ll have a glass of sweet tea ready.

A galaxy faces the cruel and growing threat of a powerful Dark Lord and his second in charge, the Black Dragon Commander.
With the fate of his people on the line, the truth is his greatest weapon… Eighteen-year-old Dante refuses to let evil conquer the galaxy. And the fact that his own father acts as the instrument of a dark lord’s unrelenting destruction only makes it harder. But when Dante learns a mysterious warrior has strange visions of his family, he discovers she may hold the key to defeating his father.
As sinister attacks threaten more and more planets, he fears their purpose is to prepare for an ultimate showdown. But with clues scarce and the girl’s mission to help him turning deadly, Dante might be running out of time before those he swore to protect are doomed.

He’s the last defense. Will a deadly gamble be the end of the galaxy’s only hope?
Dante is in a tailspin. But the mind-blowing revelation of a tragic family secret doesn’t prevent his desperate attempt to deploy a tracking device to locate the enemy’s new ultimate weapon. Because if he and his allies can’t stop it being brought to bear on the besieged colonies, everyone dies.
With his best ally remaining mysterious, Dante feels ill-prepared to confront his father and free him from the Dark Lord’s control. But when he comes face to face with the fiend’s petrifying ability to twist truth into deception, the embattled warrior may struggle to resist falling victim to the same power.

Victory is buried under the trail of Black Dragon destruction. Can two spear-bearers’ unshakeable connection reignite the flame against Black Dragon?
As the long-anticipated meeting between Dante and the Girl finally arrives, it’s bittersweet.
It’s overshadowed by a shared grief and the anguish that their sacrifice was for nothing as the Black Dragon continues to silently march forth with its ultimatum. Serve them or die. Then comes the terrifying realization that the Black Dragon now possesses the means to make such bondage reality. The two spear-bearers must see beyond the ashes left behind and move forward to face the Black Dragon again.
Yet another battlefield rages, one nearer to their hearts. Dante and the Girl promised their bond would not be broken, that it would see them through whatever lies ahead. However, the Girl is forced to keep her world hidden from Dante, and her tortured past threatens to overwhelm her. Those bindings entice her like never before, dragging her closer to the edge of a black abyss determined to make her its own. Dante, though, is equally relentless in his pursuit to keep his beautiful sunspear-bearer safe from the shadows that threaten to take her.
In the end, will she succumb to the tendrils of Darkness coiling around her, or will Dante’s bond be the stronger claim? Or does it only mark the beginning of the Black Dragon’s galactic conquest turning from a mere shadow to a deadly certainty?

Meet The Characters
His intense brown eyes, sandy brown hair, and handsome frame are usually seen these days with a sunspear flashing in his hands. He has a reputation as one of the best with the sunspear, but he has never cared about that. After all, he doesn’t have another choice as the Dark Lord’s forces threaten everything he cares about. He is the only one left of his immediate family. Well unless you count his father, but he tries not to think about that too much. He vows not to let them take anyone else away from him.
Who is she? Sometimes she wonders herself. She doesn’t like what she sees at times. There have been moments… Better not to think about it. The blue-eyed brunette has a beauty that captivates all who see her, but much more passes through those eyes of hers than anyone would believe. Images that awaken her crying, but she always convinces herself they are gifts. It works. Most of the time, until the next image. Secrets she holds and must carry. Her days frequently see a sunspear in her hand as well, her training is in secret though. She must fight the coming threat as well, but not as he does. Yet she sees him in her eyes. Why? Why him? He’s the one image that’s not unpleasant.
The Dark Lord
He loves deception. It is his cloak as much as the Darkness is. He has mastered it as few have and what he has done with… The cruel games he has played with it, continues to play with… He has savored every moment of it. And the best is yet to be revealed.
