Urban fantasy or miraculous reality?
What do you do when the hero and heroine's lives are real, yet so fantastic? Truth in heroic urban fantasy-what a concept. We start with Denzell Trujillo, a new college freshman art student in Albuquerque, falling asleep in church when the Lord talks to him-so clear he was sure it was out loud. Within three days, he's a new creation powerfully reborn into a life of wonder. Even more startling, the people he respects think he has powerful things to do-soon!
Then there's Raquel Henstrum, a young female computer genius tied up in the evil he's learning to battle. She becomes a real trial: a strong temptation and a target of intercession. But the intercession won't work unless he remains pure.
Raquel is hooked deep into the evil world of her boss, a black magician, and terrified by the demon who controls her. But she finds unexpected times of clarity and freedom. What is going on?
More than that, the evil coming upon Albuquerque is nearly beyond the people's comprehension. Where's it coming from? Who can stop it? Only the anointing of the Lord…
__________________________ Author notes:
Yes, these are Christian superheroes. The Lord gives them help. But it's the kind of help available to all of us if we'll draw near to Jesus in faith. I have experienced everything these superheroes go through in my forty six years of walking with Jesus in my day-to-day life-not the actual events, but how the walk of faith works. I write about the edifying parts of their lives. But, there is no flinching when talking about the evil of the enemy and his minions. This is not a bummer tale. It is a realistic portrayal of what would happen if the Lord brought these characters together. It will lift you up and bless you, by the grace of God. My experience is that if I draw near to Jesus, He draws near to me, and the results are amazing. The supernatural becomes commonplace. That's why, if the genre existed, I would put it in the miraculous reality genre.
