Defiance Publisher's Summary

Creation is crumbling around us, yet we can’t see it. War, famine, carnage - it’s just the beginning. 

Darkness is coming for us all. 

They say evil comes in many forms. For former soldier Gabriel Willis, it looks like a motorcade of SUVs storming his quiet neighborhood, shattering his hard-earned domestic bliss. His loving wife and children watch in horror as he is arrested and whisked away without explanation. 

Accused of terrorism and brutally tortured for information, Gabriel later learns that his family has been kidnapped and hidden away. The madman responsible hands him the arduous task of trekking to the mountains of Afghanistan to find famed archaeologist Othia Morgan and return with her - or his family will die. 

Othia has unearthed a secret truth hidden deep beneath the sands of an ancient Afghan village, a terrifying beginning to the end of it all. The lives of hundreds of thousands of unsuspecting souls are destined to be caught in the middle - including Gabriel and Othia. 

With the weight of the world upon him, Gabriel is left with an impossible decision: When should a devoted family man place the needs of the many above those of his precious few?

    For the uninitiated who discover the dark goals of the puppet masters of the world, only one option remains: run! Gabriel, Othia and Samantha have a single focus: escape Europe and make it back to the United States. A daunting task that seems impossible, considering what hunts them. Yet even the ultra-powerful cannot stop the change from coming. Employing ancient unholy rituals, they hide in the periphery of humanity, manipulating the masses for their barbaric goals.

    Promises of peace, stability, and happiness are lies...war is coming. The thin veil that separates the demonic hordes from humanity has been torn open. For Gabriel and his small group, their race from Afghanistan is nearing its end. Even though Gabriel cannot see what evil lurks around the next corner, he knows that all great moments are born of sacrifice. Meanwhile, in the quiet reaches of the American Northwest, Detective James must solve a string of ritualistic murders before they kill again.
