A Guest Post from Annabell Cadiz

Sons of Old Trilogy wasn’t necessarily where the story of a fallen angel hell bent on revenge began.

I had begun work on a different series featuring characters from Sons of Old Trilogy, primarily Endymion and Michael. I got stuck on the third book, third way through writing and realized something was missing. I felt as if I had run out of ideas and the story was no longer connecting the way I wanted it to.

I decided the best thing was to step away from working on the series—The Fallen Angel Series—and work on something else for a time.

It was during that time that I started to gather glimpses of ideas for the Fallen Angels Series. But those ideas turned out to fit better for a series BEFORE the Fallen Angels Series took place and so was born the Sons of Old Trilogy.

I wanted to tell the story before the big, epic war began between Heaven and Hell, before the world was overrun with powerful supernaturals, all vying for survival and the human race thrown right smack dab in the middle of the fray.

It began with the story of the fallen angels found in Genesis (6:4). It’s a very small mention but it awoke my curiosity. It’s not as if I hadn’t heard the story before but I never quite paid attention to the fact that angels and humans had actually had relationships with each other. Not just meet and greets but sexual relationships with each other that led to hybrid-children.

That’s where the idea for the trilogy sprang up like a root: What if Lucifer had been one of the fallen who had a child?

Which led into: If Lucifer had a child, WHO would he have a child with? Who in the world could he convince to have a child with him? What happened to the mother? What would happen to the child? HOW would a child born to the darkest angel ever born and a human survive? Who would that child become? And how would Lucifer respond to that child?

Exploring those answers is how I built the foundation for the trilogy. Lucifer’s fall from grace meant he had to betray His creator and it set a perfect stage for revenge. Pride is powerful and crippling weakness and Lucifer has that in droves—although he would never see it that way.

He has a child through lying and scheming and manipulation because that is the only way the angel of all lies knows how to operate. He uses his child to create a war but does not win that war. His drive for vengeance—for his version of justice—grows ever more deeply because of his loss.

Sons of Old Trilogy follows Lucifer’s first steps to recreating that war again but this time he has plans to win and set everything in his path ablaze in his wrath.

Synopsis

Gia Kearns would rather fight with boys than kiss them. That is,
until Arik, a leather clad hottie in the Boston Athenaeum, suddenly
disappears. While examining the book of world libraries he
abandoned, Gia unwittingly speaks the key that sucks her and her
friends into a photograph and transports them into a Paris library,
where Arik and his Sentinels—magical knights charged with
protecting humans from the creatures traveling across the
gateway books—rescue them from a demonic hound.

Jumping into some of the world’s most beautiful libraries would be
a dream come true for Gia, if she weren’t busy resisting her heart or
dodging an exiled wizard seeking revenge on both the Mystik and
human worlds. Add a French flirt obsessed with Arik and a fling with a
young wizard, and Gia must choose between her heart and her
head, between Arik’s world and her own, before both are destroyed.

About the Author

Brenda DrakeBrenda Drake, the youngest of three children, grew up an Air Force brat and the continual new kid at school until her family settled in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Brenda’s fondest memories growing up are of her eccentric Irish grandmother’s animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. So it was only fitting that she would choose to write young adult and middle grade novels with a bend toward the fantastical. When Brenda’s not writing or doing the social media thing, she’s haunting libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops or reading someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).
