Summary: I thought my boss was just another eccentric billionaire… …but I didn’t realize he was the financier of a global satanic cult, too. No matter how much sleep I lose thinking about my life, I can’t escape the numbing evil that surrounds me. Ever since the Vampires dragged me into this mess, my life has been an uphill battle against supernatural forces I barely understand. I’m not a religious man by any stretch of the imagination, and the mere thought of stepping into a church makes me nauseous. But the insane, unexplainable events happening in my life make me truly wonder if destiny has condemned me to an unholy fate: the Herald of Satan, or the Antichrist himself. When I found out the company I work for is nothing more than a front for a secret human organization that has been financing the end of the world (aka the apocalypse) and the coming of Lucifer Morningstar, well, that was the day I decided to foil the Devil and end it all. Unholy Alliances is the fourth book of The Snakeheart Series (Season 1), a supernatural novelette series about Dante Coranguis and the ancient prophecy of the End Times. Get it now.

Summary: I didn't think things could get worse… …but people started dying, and it was my fault. At first, I thought someone was playing a cruel trick on me, but that didn't explain the bizarre truth that defied scientific explanation: I had unwillingly become part of something ominous and evil. I'm not the kind of guy who cries often, and I'm certainly not a killer. I wouldn't even wish death upon my worst enemy, if I had one. But after losing two of my closest friends, I questioned my morals and beliefs: could I kill to survive? I didn't have time to mourn because I needed to discover where I fit in the supernatural world of Vampires, Lycan, and Spellcasters. If the crazy old priest and the Fae were right, then my place is second only to Lucifer Morningstar himself. Children of the Sun is the third book of The Snakeheart Series (Season 1), a supernatural novella series about Dante Coranguis and the ancient prophecy of the End Times.
