Something evil this way comes, unfortunately for it, Peter Saints is waiting.

Seventeen-year-old Peter Saints' life stinks. But things are about to get much worse. First, his parents are murdered in front of him. Then another victim dies in his arms. 

Visions plague Peter with warnings that something wants him for a sinister cause. It desires the one thing that Peter refuses to give - his blood. 

On the run with Angel, a scruffy kid, Peter starts to unravel the mystery. It's the one secret the heavens sought to hide from the world. Unfortunately, when Peter finds the answer he hopes that will save the girl he loves, he opens the door to a great evil that happens to be salivating to meet him.


A sickening thump made Peter jerk around. His face crinkled with
fury. The car threw the sparse girl’s body upwards into the air, and sped
off down the street. She bounced several times on the pavement. Peter ran
and knelt beside her. Blood dribbled from her lip. And he felt like gar-
bage, being the cause of her injury.

She smiled at him. “Petah. I…knew you would come.” Her dazed
eyes never left his face. “Take me home, Petah.”

He shook his head and searched around. Surprised the street was now
deserted. Tendrils of guilt filled his chest. Another one…my damn fault.
My fault.

Extended Excerpt: 

Pastor Finn pushed a black bag into his hand. “Take this. It’s got money, some fake IDs, keys to the motorcycle and a gun.” He sighed. “Also, directions to a safe place. Don’t stop till you get there. You can only stay the night on holy ground if you don’t want them to find you. But I can’t promise that even with that…you’ll be safe now.”

“Who are you talking about? What. The. Hell is wrong with you? With everyone. Even Hanna was talking crazed!” Peter ripped a hand through his tight curls, refusing to take the bag.

“Truth is son, I don’t know who’s after you. All I know is that the Decretum Venia has been protecting you and others since your birth. They’ve been hiding you, only the higher levels of the order know why. You were given to me by my elder when your mother contacted them at your father’s death. The Decretum Venia was trying to get you to me when one of your protectors was attacked. They met up with a contact at a church near where your mother was. Then you were transported here once it was safe.” Pastor Finn jabbed the bag at Peter once more.
