Before Dawn by Jess and Keith Flaherty

New Release from Crimson Cloak Publishing


When Mal Sinclair first learned she was the child of an angel
and a Divine bloodline, named in a prophecy of Biblical
proportions, she thought it was the end of the world.
She had no idea that only months later she’d need to know
the plural of apocalypse.

Mal had always believed good and evil were pretty black and
white until Ben Brody, the love of her life and one of the best
people she’s ever known, turned out to be a demon.

Learning more about the Emerald Hill Prophecy and the
lines being drawn Above and Below, greys her worldview
even further. Heaven and Hell both want to force Mal to tip
the scales in their favor as the time of prophecy draws near.
A clash between them in her home city of Burlington,
Vermont sends Mal and her friends on the run.

Mal’s celestial relatives try to help her, but are thwarted at
every turn by the power hungry in Heaven who offer
apparent escape for a price. Hell is breathing down their
necks, sending monsters and legends to push them toward a
destination of Lucifer’s choosing. The Church and the
Knights Templar might render aid, but their allegiances and
motives remain unclear. All Mal and Ben know for certain is
they want a future together on the other side of the
prophecy. An angel reveals there might be a way.

But first, they have to save the world.

Book 1

Ronoven, a demon dreaming of an escape from Hell, finds an excuse for an extended vacation on Earth, where he pretends to be a young drifter called Ben. Everything is going great – until he meets Chris. This unassuming teacher is using an assumed identity, too. Cursed with immortality and named in a prophecy Ben thought was fake, Chris becomes an unlikely friend. Together the two of them discover the main subject of the prophecy, Mal, a young woman not only fathered by an angel, but also the last in the direct line of Jesus and Mary Magdalene. Mal learns her true identity but is determined not to be forced into a corner by circumstances or some ancient scrap of paper. Falling in love was never part of Ben’s plan, but together he and Mal are drawn into conflict that could destroy them. Slippery ancient gods, as well as angels and their fallen siblings bring to bear all of their power to force Mal to their side. With the help of a small band of allies, Mal tries to shake free of the cage of prophecy and end Hell’s hold on Ben. Will any of them find the future they desire?

“In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…And the light shineth in the darkness and the darkness comprehended it not.”
That’s when things got complicated.
