The Lumen Chronicles
What makes a hero?
Alexander Kane, a high-school boy simply aching to finish up his education and move on with his life, never thought much about the topic. Being a hero is kind of hard when you suffer from OCD, after all. Alex accepted his fortunes and found himself okay with mediocrity.
Or he WAS, until a normal weekday afternoon broke his life apart.
Now, his OCD-teenager existence has been turned upside down by a betrayal of stunning proportions. It turns out that his adoptive guardian isn't exactly the man he claims to be, and Alex isn't who he thinks he is either.
With eyes opened to a supernatural world beyond this plane, and with that, his own magnificent birthright, Alex must find and develop the strength of character, heart, will, body, and mind in order to become the hero--the famed and Legendary Lumen--that he must be just to keep himself grounded in circumstances wildly beyond his control.
But it's awfully difficult to defeat the enemy when he knows every part of you.
A story crafted of gray psychology tones, the tenuous line between good and evil, and the ultimate struggle to live and find satisfaction in it.
"A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is brave five minutes longer." -Ralph Waldo Emerson.
