Angels and Demons
By: Gracen Miller

Where does the road to Hell begin?

“Hark the fallen angels sing, glory to the newborn King…”

Did you catch the difference in the stanza? Welcome to the world of the Road to Hell Series, where angels aren’t necessarily looking out for the good of mankind!

With good intentions?

Angels were believed to be messengers from God, as well as protectors of mankind, while offering them guidance. It is believed there are different levels of angels. The most lethal of the lot are archangels, which are God’s warriors. Many of us are familiar with God’s main messenger, Gabriel, who performs acts of justice for God. Most of us know his fiercest fighter, Michael, an archangel with a flaming sword. Two angels were sent to save Lot and his wife from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Angels visited other godly people in the Bible to guide them from whatever crisis was ongoing or about to occur.  But not all angels came with good intentions…

Or demonic design?

The Book of Enoch relates that 200 angels departed heaven and came to earth to marry and have children with human women. Some believe that their offspring are Nephilim and are the Giants from the David and Goliath story. Another accepted belief is that Lucifer was an angel, and he rebelled against God and led a revolt in heaven. We all know that Lucifer is now believed to be the devil or Satan, the one who rules Hell and tempts us away from God.

Hell’s become more than just a playground for the wicked…

But maybe legends aren’t as accurate as history would have us believe…

In a small, sleepy Alabama town the battle for mankind's liberty has begun...

What would you do if your son went homicidal overnight and you learn a demon has designs on your future? It wouldn’t help that your expertise isn’t in supernatural warfare or that you don’t even believe in God for that matter? And how would you handle it if your best friend sold his soul to the devil to save your life?

Madison Wescott from my Road to Hell Series isn’t going down without a fight. Growing up a Baptist preacher’s daughter, she knows all the ins and outs of Biblical scripture, she just stopped believing it all, discounted them as fairytales to keep people scared into righteousness. Discovering that demons are very real and have targeted her family, she won’t let that stop her determination to avoid the blueprint life has designed for her and her son. And when Nix sells his soul to save her life, she’ll do anything to save him, even open Pandora’s Box…but once you open it, there’s no turning back!

Where you can stalk me—not really!—but I would love to meet and interact with you:

Pandora’s Box Blurb (book 1):

Where does the road to Hell begin?

What happens when your son turns homicidal overnight and your husband disappears on his way to work? Do you cower in fear or fight for your life? Madison Wescott fights against the odds. Distrustful of a God she doesn't believe in, she finds herself face-to-face with a world she didn't know existed and discovers her own soul is darkened with demonic connections.

With good intentions? Or by demonic design?

Phoenix Birmingham bursts into Madison’s life in a whirlwind of sarcasm and sexual appeal. A hero for the masses—and for her jaded heart—but few will ever know the sacrifices he has made or the sacrifices to come. Discovering her entire life has been influenced by multifaceted paranormal beings, Madison is determined to defeat the apocalyptic blueprint fate has decreed, but only one man dares to challenge the supernatural forces manipulating them. Even with Phoenix's aid, can destiny be denied? Or will demonic design prevail while they pay the crucial price with their souls?

In a small, sleepy Alabama town the battle for mankind's liberty has begun...

Hell’s Phoenix Blurb (book 2):

Hell’s become more than just a playground for the wicked…

Going to Hell was supposed to save Madison, but knowing she’s dead because of his failure leaves Nix with only one thing to live for. Revenge. With Micah’s help he learns to use his Messianic power. Anything for Mads has become his mantra, even if it means killing innocents to gather the power he needs to succeed. A tsunami he unleashes on a Gulf Coast city is stopped with magical interference, and Nix is more than surprised to feel Madison in the opposing magic. Can he and Micah set a trap to lure her out?

Pandora’s Box…once you open it, there’s no turning back!

Madison has done the unthinkable, opened Pandora’s Box to save Nix from Hell. And failed. She’s willing to risk her own life to rescue Nix, but she worries about the welfare of her accomplice in the mission and leaving her son behind. Following up on a lead, she’s ambushed by Nix and Micah. Shocked and hurt to discover Nix has become a willing participant of Hell, she’s more certain than ever she won’t escape the demonic fate her husband outlined for her. While in Hell, she discovers denying the emergence of her succubus is futile, which means getting Nix out of Hell after embracing her inner demon just became a very real dilemma…
