BROODING:The Heartland Chronicles Book One
Nicholas Goodfellow is not the Devil, but he knows him.
When the high-ranking, aristocratic demon first spies his new mission – a five-year-old orphan named Tyler Davis – he is insulted. But when he sees that his former friend General Valiant, one of Heaven's mightiest warriors, has been charged with the boy's keep, he knows that something is afoot.
Tyler knows nothing of these spiritual beings. As the tenderhearted lad grows up under the twisted rule of his dictatorial grandmother – experiencing physical, emotional, and religious abuse – he runs away at the age of sixteen, collapses on the highway, and is adopted by a benevolent gang of Colorado bikers known as The Brood.
Within this family, made up of wounded souls like himself, Tyler first begins to trust, falls in love, and learns some very effective ways of shutting out the past. But running from demons, psychological or otherwise, is a tricky business – sooner or later they must be faced. As Tyler does so, he becomes aware of the spiritual battle going on around him – a bloody war for his soul which will leave none of The Brood unchanged.
This very human story is about forgiveness, redemption, letting go of the past, and how God can offer beauty for ashes to the most brokenhearted soul.
It is a story for the walking wounded. It is a story for us all.
