Talisman Of El Excerpt

‘Hey.’ Charlie chased after him.

‘Charlie,’ Derkein called. ‘Charlie, get back here.’

Charlie didn’t stop. With the burning stick still in his hand, he raced through the forest after the boy. ‘Stop!’ he yelled. ‘I just want my bag.’ The boy was a good thirty feet ahead of him. What do they feed this kid?

‘Charlie,’ he heard Derkein call. It wasn’t until a loud cry reached him that he stopped.

It was Alex.

He turned round but saw no sign of the others. Panicked, he looked back at the boy, who had also stopped, and then he turned and ran back the way he had come.

It didn’t take him long to spot Derkein. When he got closer, he saw Richmond, who was now on his feet, Alex’s burning stick slowly fading on the ground beside him. But where was Alex?

Seeing Derkein and Richmond glancing up into a tree, he followed their gaze and spotted Alex trapped in a rope net.

‘It could be worse,’ Richmond said. Charlie and Derkein glanced at him. ‘What, it could.’

Derkein’s gaze shifted to Charlie, and the lines on his forehead smoothed out, his expression stern. ‘Didn’t we just have a conversation about you running off?’

‘I know,’ Charlie said, ‘but I was trying to get my bag back.’ Derkein looked confused. ‘It’s not just going to fall out of the sky.’

‘What? No, that kid –’

‘Ah, hello,’ Alex said hotly. ‘Girl in a rope here. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m thinking whoever set this trap might come back.’

Charlie looked up at her, her body bent in an uncomfortable sitting position with her legs reaching high above her head, and a faint smile crept onto his face. ‘Hang in there, Alex,’ he called up to her.

‘You just wait till I get down, Charlie Theodore Blake,’ she threatened.

Richmond snickered. ‘Your middle name’s Theodore?’

Charlie looked at him, his smile fading. ‘Shut up.’

Derkein cleared his throat to refocus their attention. ‘How are we going to get her down, boys?’ he asked.

Charlie glanced back up at the tree. The distance between Alex and the ground was at least twelve feet, twice Derkein’s height. To get her down, Derkein would have to hoist Charlie onto his shoulder, and then some.

As Derkein pondered a strategy, Charlie’s focus shifted to the thudding sound he heard coming towards them. Before he even had time to panic, the sound died almost as soon as it had begun.

He turned round and froze, his heart thrumming in his ears as he stared at the line of people armed with shiny blades and arrows pointed at his head.

What was shall no longer be. Was was not shall now become. 
 
Despite having the protection of the talisman and the Legion, a reforming force of warrior angels and elementals, guarding his every move, things are not looking good for Charlie Blake. Tasked with the responsibility of saving mankind, finding the four diamonds to restore the talisman is all he can think of, but when his prophetic visions start to invade his reality and he suddenly can’t distinguish the dream world from the real world, the pending extinction of mankind becomes the least of his problems. Everyone assumes Charlie’s dormant powers are activating, until he starts showing symptoms of a deadly disease.

With his nemesis, Gaddis, threatening the lives of his loved ones, he faces a race against time to locate the Stone of Raphael, the air diamond, before an imminent pandemic destroys civilization. As he ventures into dangerous lands once again, he unearths shocking revelations about his past life that forces him to question his allegiance. With no one to turn to for answers, he can’t help but wonder if his purpose is truly to save mankind.

Blackout Excerpt

‘Hey, Becks,’ Charlie whispered to Rebecca just as Group B moved around the tree to inspect the other side.

Rebecca stopped and turned to him. ‘What?’

Charlie looked back at Alex and Josh, who had just grabbed Alex’s arm to stop her from walking off. ‘Does that seem odd to you?’ When Rebecca didn’t respond, he glanced sideways at her and saw her gawking at him with an undesirable look on her face.

‘I should care because?’ she responded.

‘Would it kill you to be nice to me for one minute?’

‘Anything’s possible.’

Charlie stared her down.

Rebecca rolled her eyes and glanced in Alex and Josh’s direction. ‘They’re talking, so what?’

‘So what could they possibly have to say to each other? They can’t stand to be in each other’s presence for longer than ten seconds, so it makes you wonder.’

‘Not really. I could care less. Maybe they’re trying to get your attention.’

Charlie paused. ‘Why would they need my attention?’

‘Why don’t you ask them and not me?’

Because I need to prove to her that I can do this. Charlie watched as Alex walked away from Josh, who remained where he was, staring after her. ‘She probably thinks I’m weak, but I am going to break the veil.’ Another realisation hit him. ‘Maybe there is no veil. Maybe she just wants me to think there is –’

‘Are you on something?’ Charlie looked at Rebecca and saw her watching him with a furrowed brow. ‘You’ve been acting really weird all day, and now you’re talking about some veil thing that I – I just – I actually don’t know what you’re talking about.’

Charlie stared at her in shock. He hadn’t realised he had spoken aloud.

Rebecca narrowed her eyes at him. ‘You’re trying to distract me, aren’t you?’ She nodded to herself. ‘You’re ticked off that I answered your question –’

Charlie tuned her out. Rebecca had given him an idea. I need to draw her out. He glanced around the surroundings. He could make out Alex and the rest of Group A some distance away, but Group C weren’t within his vicinity. All he needed was a little distraction. He looked back at Rebecca, who was still yapping away.

‘Becks,’ Charlie said, cutting her sentence short, ‘I’m not trying to score points here, so chill.’ He patted her shoulder and gave her a smile. Rebecca stared at him as if he’d lost his mind, and then she turned round and walked off to rejoin the group.

Charlie’s smile faded, and he took a deep breath. He felt a tingling sensation crawling up his arms as the heat within him took its course. The voices around him were the first to fade, and then it was complete silence. The earth drummed under his feet. The wind rose; a few dead leaves latched onto him as they moved across the ground.

His fellow students and teachers stopped what they were doing. He had their full attention. He felt a vein twitch in his neck as the heat inside him rose to his head. Papers whisked in the air, dancing with the wind. It all seemed like a performance of some sort, a theatrical show. He watched the students grabbing for their papers in a frenzy as they attempted to retrieve their data. Only six individuals remained where they were, astounded by the event taking place. Only one had eyes for him: Alex.

Her eyes were wide with shock.

Charlie shot her a knowing smile.

And then the mist engulfed her.
