5 Days of Captive Souls
Thursday, July 9th, 2009

Over the next five days, I’m going to introduce you to the three novellas that begin the Captive Souls series. My friends, Kimberly Kaye Terry and Vivi Anna, have written the other two stories in this trilogy. The covers are gorgeous, aren’t they? Our ladies’ adventures are even more intriguing, I promise. And there will be prizes along the way, so be sure to post comments. Click on the covers to learn more.

The Legend

Bacclum, a descendent of the Grigori (angels sent to Earth to be the companion of man) used his inherited abilities to increase his power through spells and enchantments. Carried away with his successes, Bacclum tried to call upon a powerful angel to force him to add to his arsenal of abilities by using his name—something forbidden and dangerous. A simple mispronunciation of the name summons instead, Malvo, a powerful ancient demon, one suffering a long ennui due to his disillusionment with mankind.

Unknown to Bacclum, a guardian gargoyle, Octavius, had been assigned to investigate Bacclum’s sins and punish him if he could not be dissuaded from his search for forbidden power. Octavius, bound to watch over Bacclum, is brought into the battle when Malvo reacts angrily at being awakened by the arrogant mixed-blood angel.

After a long, hard battle, one in which Bacclum is aided by Octavius in fighting the powerful demon, Bacclum believes himself the victor over the demon. However, Malvo, in a last rush of power, uses an enchantment that binds himself, as well as his enemies—Bacclum and the gargoyle Octavius—inside Bacclum’s mansion in an isolated Louisiana parish, but in separate dimensions.

For a century and a half the house sleeps, waiting for another selfish soul to serve it.

    I’m really excited to read these stories. Seeing each author’s take on the different characters in the tale should be very interesting. Are they all released on the same day? :cool:

    Paula!
    They will all come out together next week. And while each can be read as a stand-alone title, I think you would enjoy them even more read in this order:

    1) Dominique’s Release
    2) Stone’s Embrace
    3) Demon Lover

    Ooh, very cool, Delilah! What a great concept–was it fun to work together with Kimberly and Vivi? Did you have to meet at the beginning to figure out the basics? I love the whole seeing-things-from-different-perspectives idea!

    The covers look good enough to eat. The little bit of the story I’ve read so far sounds intriguing. Have a great day.
