A Portion of Malice

Ages of Malice, Book I

An ancient evil rises…

A brazen, edge of your seat tale of God, humanity, and the battle between good and evil.

A Portion of Malice is a fast paced, supernatural thriller that explores the razor’s edge between sanity, lunacy, and the cost of every choice.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Emery Merrick presses a pistol to his temple. Then there’s a knock at the door. Billionaire Thaddeus Drake hires Emery to write his biography. But Drake has a dark secret, and Emery soon discovers he heads an ancient, secret society which aims to fulfill prophecy and sacrifice the Earth to a bloodthirsty God. Deep and emotionally stirring, Emery finds himself plunged into an immortal world of darkness, deceit, and barbarity.

This thought-provoking thrill ride chronicles one man’s explosive journey into the apocalypse and one man’s epic quest to confront God as an equal. A captivating odyssey through history and time that is full of suspense, A Portion of Malice changes the conversation about spirituality, redemption, and the world in which we live.

Consistently compared to works by Stephen King and Dan Brown, A Portion of Malice will blow you away with its controversial plot and surprise twist ending. It’s the first book in the epic series,  Ages of Malice.

Humanity hangs by a slender thread!

Will one man make a difference?
