Excerpt from Lamp of Darkness #books #teasertuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, read the rules at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

Did you miss my exciting announcement? Take a quick click over to see my news. I’m very excited about it!

This week’s teaser comes from The Lamp of Darkness by Dave Mason. It is a young adult book set in Biblical times, and my only complaint is that it ended too soon, before the story was fully told. It is the beginning of a series, and no other books are yet available. So be warned before you start it! It is a freebie right now.

I winced at the word devotion. Uriel used the same word to describe the Way of the prophets. I pictured Yambalya drawing his knife across his own chest. Is that what devotion looks like to you, Zim?

Unlock Your Past, Unleash Your Future!

The Age of Prophecy series transports you back 3000 years, to the epic battle between the Israelite Kings and Prophets. Lev, an orphaned shepherd boy, begins a journey of discovery when he’s hired to play as a musician before the prophets. He soon learns that his father’s knife holds a deadly secret about his hidden past. As he is drawn deeper into the world of prophecy, Lev fights to unearth his true self while the clouds of war gather around him.

Rooted in the Ancient Oral and Mystical Traditions

Authors Dave Mason and Mike Feuer spent years researching the Oral and Kabbalistic traditions detailing the inner workings of prophecy and the world of Ancient Israel.

The Epic Story Brought to Life

The backdrop for The Age of Prophecy is the epic conflict between King Ahav and the Prophet Eliyahu (more commonly known as Ahab and Elijah in English). Learn the inner story of the battle, in a way that will reframe all you’ve ever heard about the Israelite Kings and Prophets.
