(Sons of Old Trilogy, Book 1)

Author: Annabell Cadiz

Genre: New Adult, Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, Supernatural

Synopsis: Have you ever wondered what could be hiding in the shadows?

Well, for eighteen-year-old Zahara Faraday, she doesn’t have to wonder. You see she comes from a lineage of Light Witches, those who have chosen to help protect and serve between the supernatural world and the human world. The only problem is Zahara, like her father Solomon, is as human as a human being can be whereas her mother, Mia, and her Aunt Catalina, were born as Light Witches. As a family they hunt down rogue supernaturals—creatures who harm humans or who have committed an act against their kingdom. 

Zahara’s hunting skills are usually kept dormant since her parents would prefer she live life as a normal human girl without knowledge of the supernatural world. She plans on doing just that—except when she finds a couple being attacked by fairies, she has no choice but to step in. Before she can return to pretending to be blissfully ignorant, Zahara encounters a problem she isn’t the least equip to handle: Bryan Hamilton, the good looking new co-worker she has to help train. In a heartbeat, her best friend, Becca King, has set her up on a double date with herself and her new crush, Rekesh Saint-Louis, who happens to be the most powerful leader of the biggest Imago Coven in South Florida –supernatural creatures with the ability to control water . . . and suck out human souls. 

Zahara has no time to focus on how she’s going to explain her double date with her best friend and the enemy they have a tentative truce with to her parents because soon one of the members of Mia and Catalina’s coven is found murdered with a strange tattoo of a snake with wings carved into his arm.

Zahara is then thrown into a whirlwind battle with an angel determined to have revenge against God, an Imago coven she doesn’t think they should trust, and slew of dream-eating fairies and powerful Nephilims, hybrid children of angels and humans, more than happy to rip her to shreds.

Normal just got a deadlier definition.

Hawt Boys, Oh My!
By Author Annabell Cadiz

Check out the hawt male leads featured in Annabell Cadiz debut novel, LUCIFER, the first book in the SONS OF OLD TRILOGY!

One of the best aspects to writing a book is the characterization and some of the best fun with characters come from the male leads *hehe*

Whether he’s the nerd with a cool style and a good heart or the muscle toned, leather clad male jock or the mysterious bad boy with unresisting charm, a story just isn’t the same with a guy to swoon over, drool over, or giggle over.

When I approached writing the male characters that star in LUCIFER, I wanted them to be smart, funny, cunning, dangerous, and easy on the eyes *wink* (Yes, I’m a shallow person. The first step to recovery is to admit the problem. I’ve never lied about oogling over a nicely muscle toned guy when he walks in the room. No judging people!) I wanted characters that couldn’t be defined as simply bad guy and good guy. I wanted them to have strong qualities and flaws. I like the good of a character and the darker part of them. I like to explore both sides and see what a character would do if presented with the chance to change from one path to another.

So without further delay, allow me to introduce you to the lovely gentleman in LUCIFER.

Bryan Hamilton. He stands at six feet even with a mess of golden brown hair and crystal blue eyes inside an oval shaped face. He has a defined jaw and long eyelashes. He’s chivalrous and sweet with a sexy edge to him. He loves messing around with Zahara and bonds instantly with Becca. Those two together drive Zahara crazy! Bryan is the boyfriend parents would be happy with. I mean the first time he meets Zahara’s father he asks for permission to go out on a date with Zahara, how can you NOT swoon?! *giggle* For some reason I thought Freddie Storma would be great to portray Bryan in a movie. He’s just so humble and sweet but has that look like he’d be the type to sneak you into a concert without paying as a way to impress you *wink*

Rekesh Saint-Louis. Stands at six feet two inches in height with long limbs that glow silver when touched by the moonlight. He has a head full of thick dark brown hair and chocolate colored eyes set in a diamond shaped face with angular cheekbones and full lips. Rekesh is definitely yummy *giggle* He does everything with style, class, and patience. I LOVE the way Rekesh dresses. In every situation he is so put together and so elegant. He is the leader of the most powerful Imago Coven in Florida and even though he runs a rogue supernatural coven, he does it with honor and respect. It’s no wonder Becca fell for him ;) I think Bryton James could make a good fit for Rekesh in a movie adaptation.

(Imago Definition: During the day, they look as normal as any human being. Except they can move ten times faster than a human and have ten times more strength. At night their skin turns to silver due to their connection to the moon. Imagoes were born of a mermaid and a fallen angel who fell in love and gain the power to control the element of water because of their ancestry. )

Solomon Faraday. Solomon stands at six feet two inches with lush, blond hair, dark chestnut-colored eyes in an oval-shaped face framed with high cheekbones. Solomon is an awesome father and husband. He protects his family with every ounce of strength he has and loves his family with the same passion. He’s laid back, charismatic, loving, and dependable. I love how close he is to Zahara and how open he is with her. He’s the hot dad women can’t help but pay attention to ;)

 Adam King. Stands at five feet eleven inches with dark brown hair, lovely brown eyes inside an oval-shaped face and has a straight nose. He is the father to Becca and the husband to Ariel. Adam is outgoing, straight forward, and bold. He passed his unique fashion sense down to Becca. He is always true to who he is and a loving father. Adam’s just so loveable. I thought Eric Bana might be a good fit to play Adam in a movie adaptation. He just has the right vibe.

Leanian. Stands at five feet ten inches with forest-green colored eyes, a blue Mohawk, and pierced ears. He’s an Imago and Rekesh’s second in command. Leanian is agile, fast, and terrifyingly quiet. I wouldn’t want to be an enemy of his! Leanian has such a quirky and awkward personality so the nerd in me just adores him *hehe* Aaron Johnson is an AWESOME actor and he’s so versatile. I’m pretty sure he’d do a great job playing Leanian in a film.

Charles Stephens. Stands at six feet six inches, with a head full of thick auburn hair, bright, clear, hazel eyes, and chiseled jawline. He is a fallen angel and a gorgeous one at that! He has this old world feel to him and carries himself with patience, grace, and sexiness. But sorry ladies, he’s already taken! Charles also runs a school for the children of rogue supernaturals who have either been orphaned, abandoned, or who have run away from home and need sanctuary. Charles wanted to do something to redeem his actions. Rick Malambri would fit playing Charles role because he’s seriously hot enough to be an rebellious angel *swoon*

Jason Pierce. A sixteen-year-old Nephilim, half-angel, half-human—who stands at five feet seven inches with a head full of dark-brown hair in a tangled mess and haunting, gray eyes. Jason is a young kid who has lost the only parent who ever took care of him, his mother, and is living at the school Charles runs. He is a lost kid trying to find his way and has a good heart. I thought Jake. T. Austin would be a good actor to portray Jason.

Dustin Michaels. Stands at five feet ten inches with mocha-colored brown eyes, a head full of thick light-brown hair and well-built body. He’s a Cadtellus and has such a sweet bond with his wolf, Bandit, who has a huge personality all his own. Dustin is hell on wheels in fight! I would totally love to have him as a teammate in a battle because he can kick some major butt. He’s got a good heart, mean set of fists, and a quick tongue. He’s a lot of fun ;) I had originally chosen Jesse Williams to portray Rekesh in a movie adaptation of LUCIFER but decided he worked better for Dustin. He just looks like he could play a supernatural creature that can merge with a wolf ;)

(Definition of Cadtellus: The first part of the name is derived from the first three letters of my last name, an idea provided by Hello Kitty (Eve) which I thought would be fun. These supernatural creatures were created from the fallen angel Cathetel. He married a human girl who was bitten by a wolf when she was pregnant and the wolf’s DNA merged with the child. Cathetel became so angry he cursed the existence of wolves and poisoned any wolf he could find with his power. It backfired though because any human the wolves bit would be turned into a Cadtellus. Cathetel was ordered by the Seraphim Council to locate every wolf who contained his power and return them to the Angel Kingdom. Cadtellus have the power to control the element of earth since Cathetel had the ability. They can also merge with the wolf who caused them to change being able to essentially become the wolf. They have incredible speed, sense of smell and hearing, and strength.)

Samyaza. Stands at six feet in height, powerfully built, with broad shoulders, eyes a dark shade of coffee, with bronze circling the irises, and short black hair. Samyaza is a fallen angel and Lucifer’s right hand man. He is the silent type. You can never really tell what he’s thinking. He never gives himself away and always manages to remain calm in any situation, but he’s certainly deadly. Sean Faris just has that set fixed gaze that makes him perfect for the role of Samyaza.

Chamuel. Standing at six feet four inches, body made of pure muscle, eyes the color of rainstorm, and thick spiky black hair. He is a fallen angel and a member of Lucifer’s crew. Chamuel screams sexy! He loves to flirt with anything that resembles a female and wears a skirt. He’s definitely the dangerous bad boy every girl should stay away from but won’t be able to. Colton Haynes was chosen as the actor to portray him because well, just LOOK at him! Would you really argue against seeing him on screen? ;)

Ashadeus. Stands at five feet nine inches with a lanky yet fit frame with long limbs, shaggy light-brown hair, and mesmerizing light-green eyes. He’s a fallen angel and another member of Lucifer’s crew. Ashadeus is so strange and quirky. He isn’t very fond of the human race and has no real patience for them. He’s quite deadly with the powers he possesses and has an awkward sense of humor. David Henrie seems like he would be good to portray Ashadeus in a movie adaptation because he looks like he could play a weird, quirky, hot, fallen angel.

So have I enticed you enough yet to give LUCIFER (SONS OF OLD TRILOGY, #1) a chance? *wink wink* *nudge nudge*
