The Chosen Knights: (Secret Knights Book 1)

March 19, 2016
Pages: 329
When teens go missing in Hawaii, a group of demon-hunters—half human and half angel—disguised as high school students, must leave Crossroads, the place where they reside. In a race against time, they uncover the mystery connecting the missing teens, which dates back to the era of the Knights Templar. However, when they discover one of the Templars passed down a book containing all the secrets and codes to finding a particular treasure, they soon realize this forbidden treasure needs to be found before Cyrus, the lord of the possessor demons, acquires it—a treasure which been safeguarded and hidden from him.

There is only one problem: the pages containing the clues leading to the treasure is missing. When the first page is found, Cyrus threatens to kill more descendants of the Knights Templar if it is not given to him by Friday the thirteenth. In the midst of threats and discovery, the demon-hunting angels find they are not alone when supernatural beings begin to reveal themselves. Can they put their differences aside and work together to solve the Knights Templars’ cipher? As they astral travel to the past, they witness a lot more than they have bargained for. And some things are better left unseen.

Teens keep disappearing in Hawaii and three Venators, half human/half angel, are sent to Hawaii to find the connection between the demons they’ve been fighting and the missing teens. This will be the first time Lucia and Zach have lived on Earth, having been raised and trained at the Crossroads. Uncle Davin will be accompanying them so the recon should go smoothly.

A fresh, young adult series that gives a new perspective to angels, demons and the supernatural. The story connects the Knights Templars with the modern-day fight of good versus evil bringing a new twist to an old story. Lots of humor with a little young romance keeps the story moving. If you want a little history on the Venators before starting this story, check out the prequel, The Angel Knights before reading this one. It will give you a little history on the Venators, their lives and purpose prior to heading to Hawaii.
