Kidnapping, corporate espionage, and betrayal are some of the intense themes you can expect from this latest addition to Elijah’s concept line-up. BLACKLOCK features a young woman, named Peregrine Blacklock and her involvement in an unprecedented time of consumer activism: bordering on corporate terrorism.
As the daughter of an executive and true “wolf” of the stock market, she is underestimated and an easy target for those wishing to hurt her father, the famous Charmichael Blacklock, CEO and founder of Blacklock Industries. However, the love of her father is proven cold when Peregrine is kidnapped and Mr. Blacklock refuses to pay her ransom: assuring her execution.
Barely escaping from the clutches of her captors, Peregrine is now determined to make a name for herself and possibly earn the respect of her father… that or tear him and his company down to the ground: she hasn’t decided yet.
In his first-ever, and possibly only, attempt at writing Paranormal Fiction, Elijah brings forth the mysterious and miraculous in this cunning and witty tale. Kaitlyn Rose is the daughter of a deceased Catholic priest and is no stranger to exorcisms and the supernatural: except she hates everything in that realm of belief.
Kaitlyn has made it her life’s purpose to debunk the paranormal and to prove all priests, psychics, and miracle-workers wrong: to expose their lies and shed the truth on the world: there is nothing beyond.
Her most recent case has her investigating the “resurrection” of a boy. In the dramatic, faith-filled, God-fearing, and emotional tale of forgiveness and truth, Kaitlyn herself is forced to come back to life.
Elijah promises nothing sketchy nor demonic: this is a tale of the miracles of God.
