The balance of good and evil has been left in the hands of a thirteen year old…
Since the beginning of time, Karmanic matter worked silently and unassisted keeping good and evil in balance, until growing greed in the world meant Karma couldn’t keep up. As World War I rages, the secret Karmanic Sovereign Legion works behind the scenes to help Karma.
A suspicious train accident and an odd stone-shaped object that belonged to his father thrust Cole McCarthy and two schoolmates into the middle of this battle to keep dark forces in check.
With only the powerful stone, a letter, and grandfatherly Norm to guide them, the trio must unravel clues and tap into unknown strengths to discover who Cole’s father really was and keep themselves and those they love safe.
Includes chapter 1 of book 2 in the Karmanic Sovereign Legion series!
AUGUST 1, 1918
One mile outside Durham, New Hampshire, Richard McCarthy sat in his private coach, blind to the luxury around him, mind churning, willing the train to move faster.
He clutched the single object that had driven him all these years, costing him the life of his first wife, Marie. The pursuit of his enemies knew no boundaries as long as he maintained its possession.
But now that possession threatened his only son, Cole.
The train jolted and slowed as the engine suddenly lost power. Just as he rose to investigate, the locomotive lurched forward again. Richard knew better than to believe the interruption was a random occurrence. He quickly slipped the object into a small leather pouch, knelt down, moved the rug, and hid the pouch in a steel box beneath the floorboards of the car.
The instant he dropped the rug back into place, the window exploded in a shower of glass. Richard bolted for his desk, shielding his eyes from the spray of glass and the gust of hot air.
A large, ghostlike figure appeared, staring through the open space where the window had been.
The desk cabinet flew open, an upturned metal crescent nestled on a stand. The air rippled between its tips, opaque and distorted.
The car sped up, then shuddered on the track. The apparition burst into the car.
“You’ll never get it from me!” Richard shouted, reaching for the crescent.
And then the creature was on him.
