Samyara’s Hidden Chapters: Password

Here are a couple of chapters written from Samyara’s Point-of-View because I was asked the question about how he knew to plan his attacks. Happy Reading!

WARNING: contains spoilers. Please read Angelstone completely before you read these chapters…

The password is the name of Balthazar’s sidekick (who wears a lot of purple) who helps Alyx and Jordan outside of Purgatory (starts with the letter J).

Angelstone BC2

* * *

After escaping from the Hollows and the Michaelea lightwarriors, Jordan takes Alyx and Israel to Aradale, a secret Rogue community, where they appear to be safe − for now. But did they bring the enemy with them? “Mini”, the strange and speechless young girl they rescued from the Hollows, is not as she seems. Why was Elder Michael keeping her locked up? What is she hiding?

Alyx and Israel are driven further apart as Israel continues to obsess over making Adere human and Alyx hides two secrets from him: that he may be part-demon and that she may be carrying his child, a tri-blood keye that can be used to unlock Hell.

Out in the mortal cities, pieces of Black Stone, the only material that can disrupt the angels’ healing abilities, continue to be stolen to make weapons for Samyara’s dark army. Alyx and her friends must stop them, but this means infiltrating holy and guarded places to steal the Black Stone − a monastery in remote China, a mosque in Saudi Arabia, an art gallery in Florence and a cathedral in Peru.

Can they win this deadly race against the Darkened?

Wingless angels battle off the cliffs of Australia

Against the backdrop of a pure blue sky, two angels battle each other along the stooped and weather-beaten cliffs along the Great Ocean Road. One of them lashes out with her blade. The other tries to pull herself out of its way but the sea winds, already batting them like toys against the rockface, knocks her forward.  The edge of the blade slices along her skin. The smell of coppery blood hits her nose before it is overpowered by the salt in the air.

But no one else can see it but me…

I had this idea for the setting for a scene, an illegal night race that occurs in Angelstone, book 2 of the Dark Angel series which I am currently writing. At my request, my brother drove his girlfriend and I along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia.

Split Point Lighthouse

(Shout out to Ben, my bro, for taking these wicked pics with his new camera. They turned out so much better than the pics I took with my crappy phone camera)

We stopped along the cliffs around the Split Point lighthouse and explored and soaked in the place, the weather conspiring to create a flawless day for us.

The Great Ocean Road

When creating a scene set in a real place, I usually have to recreate the backdrop using photos to help pull the details into focus. But photos can never get you the smell, the sounds, and the ‘feel’ of a location. So, to stand, to actually stand before a place where the scene is taking place… yeh. that was cool.


The characters that I brought along with me felt the energy of the place too. I felt almost like a parent at times, clambering along the thin strip of shore at the base of the cliffs coaxed along by their excitable calls (“look at me… look at this!) and displays of how this chapter could play out (“…and what about doing this here, and this, and this..!”).

Even my brother got excited about it. (“What if you had one of them taking of here and the other ‘running’ sideways off this cliff face here…”)

Can you see it when you look at these photos? Isn’t this a perfect spot for an illegal race? I think so.

After taking it all in I sat for a bit and wrote. Man, I can’t tell you how cool that was 🙂

Writing the scene

I am so excited to for you to read this scene, nay, the whole of Angelstone! Soon, I promise.
