Coven of the Worm

Book One: Estranged Earth

Linda Caldwell attends Putty Hill Senior High with her friends Jane and Candy, where she meets and falls in love with an intriguing young man named David Yeng-Chi.

David seems perfect for her, but he has a dark secret. His father Hamaki had trained him to use a deadly mix of martial arts and magic in the service of his god—Chai'Huon Ju, the Defiler. David is a descendent of the Worm Clan of a long forgotten prehistoric nation called Hunjan. There were other gods and different beliefs among these people, but the Worm Clan had believed in Chai'Huon Ju's legacy of evil.

As the relationship between David and Linda grows, Linda begins to have prophetic dreams warning her to stay away from him. The visions are so insistent and frightening that she surrenders to them and breaks up with David. Enraged, David resolves to have revenge by conjuring his god to Earth.

Linda has a secret too, however—one that might help to save her soul from the Defiler. Prophecy was merely the first of her abilities to develop and—she soon discovers—there were more powers to come.


Book Two: Mystic Moon (in progress)

Eric is the son of David Yeng-Chi, who had unleashed Pure Intensity and wreaked havoc on a Maryland town in 1995—all in the name of revenge. When Eric discovers his true identity, he sets out to fulfill his destiny, which is to assemble a Coven and use it to release his evil god on Earth.

Daniel is an Avatar of the gods, and only he knows how to find the others like him. It is his destiny to gather the Avatars and lead them to battle against the Defiler before he can wage war on Heaven. Together with Dawn Lu, Linda Levinston, and FBI agent Carl Timmers, Daniel searches for Eric and his coven—hoping to find them before they can succeed with their diabolical plans.

Tower of Light Issue Two

Well, despite the problems I've had in the past staying online for one reason or another (this last waiting for my ISP to transfer to a new address - which took six weeks instead of two), I have not given up on the Tower of Light Ezine. It is unfortunate that I wasn't able to respond to all the submissions in a timely fashion over the past month, and as a result I've had to close to new submissions until I can get caught up (again). Fortunately, I have received some great stories.

Issue two includes a review of Mark Terence Chapman's The Mars Imperative, and five shorts stories by Alice M. Roelke, Matthew Baron, Eric S. Brown, Ryder Patzuk Russell, and Mischell Lyne. Also, I've given the site a new look; I hope it goes over well.

And I'm so glad to be blogging again, even if my posts are rather short!

Ah, ISP troubles! I hear you! I'm not even going to mention my current status for fear of jinxing myself, as I've done more than once since I moved out of a DSL service area.

But let me just say I totally sympathize, and I hope things are stabilizing for you!

Michael, great job revamping the site! Few things can annoy and frustrate quicker than computers. It's amazing we don't smash most of them to bits.

Leah J. Utas said...

I'm glad you're blogging again, too.

Bunnygirl: Yep, everything has finally settled with the ISP, fortunately.

Jim: Thanks! I'm glad you like it, although I've noticed a few problems with it since I looked at it with my brand new computer (no more dinosaur! yay!). I had no idea it might look different on different comnputers. I mean, I still have the same browser, so I don't really get it.

Thanks, Leah. Now let's see if I can't actually get some discipline here!

Good to see you back Michael. I was wondering where you go off to.

Thanks, David. I'm glad to be back.
