Heaven Seeks is the first installment of the Trials of Apocalypse series. I wrote this story with the intentions of creating a good old-fashioned "man versus evil" action, horror. The story architecture is a throwback to the Saturday nights I had spent watching "Creature Feature", and is a tribute to the simpler stories of good versus evil. I hope you enjoy it.  


A Marine seeks his destiny,
A mother seeks her son,
A devil seeks vengeance,
Heaven seeks its scion.

For the past three millennia, each generation of mortals produced an Avatar and an Offspring to recruit followers for an endless war between the Heavenly and Hellish Divine. 

Avatars wielded the lux, the benevolent power of light to help mortals live in harmony. 

The Offspring dominated with the dark powers of the acerbus; enticing mortals through trickery and deceit. 

It is never known where they will manifest, but the Divine are ever vigilant, waiting for their progeny to once again walk the earth.

In the description I was waiting for "then everything changed when the fire nation attacked".

I really enjoyed reading this because your structure just really flows.   I like the story idea.  I thought the section about Scott's wife was excellent description.  The cop interview was flowing like a real conversation.  Well done!
