The Council Of Twelve Series Continues

After quite some waiting time now, many life changes and a lot of traveling, I can finally come up with some news:

The Council of Twelve Series will continue soon.

Check out the four books that are already available:


A. J. Alexander’s Books

SOUL TAKER

After long years in the line of duty as a ‘Soul Taker’, Kate is worn out.

When she gets a new job offer from the ‘Powers Above’, she accepts her new job as a Guardian gratefully without knowing that her teacher is one of the most powerful beings in existence, the Archangel Raphael.

Along with Raphael, she takes on her new task and the connection between them grows.

Raphael helps, protects and supports Kate, but suddenly, she becomes a target for the Demons of Hell.

Raphael realizes that Kate means more to him than he expected, which causes him to fight furiously against danger. If he fails, Kate’s future will contain eternal darkness, evil, and torture.


SUNDANCE

Sundance is a promising young Warrior Angel, the first in centuries to join the Divine Army. With the help of one of the most powerful Archangels, her skill and talent develop, allowing her to master some of the most difficult tasks that face her kind.

Sundance, under the supervision of the ‘Council of Twelve’ seeks to prove that she deserves her unusual gifts in the eternal fight between good and evil. Follow her adventures as she discovers love, fights the good fight, and finds herself in the heat of battle trying to keep her wings from being singed.


DEMON TRACKER

Zepheira is the best Demon Tracker working for the Good side. With her unusual looks, her phenomenal sense of smell, and her bravery, she quickly draws ‘The Big 7’s attention to her talent. They hire her to find one of them. Leaving her familiar surroundings and regular work environment unsettles Zepheira at first. But the challenge to prove herself and to increase the reputation of her infallibility tempts her. She is convinced she will be a great asset to ‘The Big 7’. Little does she know she will be a much greater asset in Heaven’s fight against Evil. Zepheira suddenly becomes more than a hired tracker. She finds herself an important pawn in the game of love, heat, and fire. Will her courage and sacrifice be sufficient to dance with the flames?


Bounty Hunter

When Centriel roams the Earth in a dark mood and atypical despair, in a mountain clearing, far from humankind, he unexpectedly discovers a runner, followed by a petite hunter. The way the woman treats the giant fugitive amuses the Archangel, but he quickly learns that neither of them are what they seem to be.

Simin Arnatt is an extraordinary woman. Her occupation as a Bounty Hunter takes her all over the world, as she follows her prey to the most unusual places. She would have never expected to meet the famous Centriel while on a hunt. When he offers to help her, she feels the enormous attraction, but she knows, with the secret she holds, she could never dare to hope for love.Neither of them could guess that with her next assignment, Hell is breaking loose…


There still needs to be some work done. The filing for the copyright will be done, knocking on my Beta-Reader’s windows was done this week, and I was in contact with my cover designer just now. She will start working on the cover of the new book.

It’s time book five will be published, and you will find out who is the new addition to our growing consort circle. I will keep you updated!

Soul Taker Secrets – Who Would I Cast For My Characters?

I have been asked not once, not twice, but many times: “If Soul Taker would become a movie, who would be your dream cast?”

Now that ain’t easy…

See, there are quite many characters, and in my case, I would hope every single actor of the ‘leading crew’ would stay through the entire series, which, of course, ‘The Council Of Twelve’ is.

Who are the leading characters in this particular book? I would say, we got 14 of them. Yes, fourteen. The entire Council Of Twelve, plus Katie, of course, and their main opponent, Lucifer.

So, let’s get started:

Michael – Chris Hemsworth

 

 

Raphael – Christian Kane

 

 

 

Uriel – Anthony Dale

 

 

 

 

Gabriel – Steve Howey

 

 

 

 

Benadrel – Laz Alonso

 

 

Tsechirel – Dwayne Johnson

 

 

 

Zachariel – Jason Momoa

 

 

Anghariel – Ian Somerhalder

 

 

 

 

Centriel – Ryan Reynolds

 

 

 

 

Deonur – Aaron Taylor Johnson

 

 

 

 

Simael – Orlando Bloom

 

 

Santanael – Daniel Dae Kim

 

 

Katie – Arielle Kebbel

 

 

 

 

 

Lucifer – Chris Pine

 

 

And of course, there is that one character in my series. A character I would never show or describe. But I secretly dream about His voice is the one of James Earl Jones.

Of course, this post was born in an overtired good mood – and maybe tomorrow I would switch them all or replace them. But right now, these are my favorites.

That doesn’t mean I won’t be open to some recommendations or suggestions. Let me hear them in the comments.

Have you ever thought of casting your books? I’d be curious to hear that too.

 

 

Soul Taker Got Its Third 5-Star Review

I’m very excited to let you all know that ‘Soul Taker’, the first book in ‘The Council Of Twelve’ series, got its third 5-star review. This is wonderful, I’m literally bouncing through my day.


Nice Debut!

New author A.J. Alexander excites us with her debut novella Soul Taker. Kate is an angel of death, taking the soul into the afterlife. After a job that went bad Kate wants to call it quits. Her request is granted in that she is now a Guardian angel and will learn under the tutelage of the great charming, and alluring Archangel Raphael. While Kate is being trained to be a Guardian demons attack kidnapping Kate. She has something they want. After her rescue by the Council of Twelve, we learn Kate does not have something hell and Lucifer want she IS what they want. You have to read the rest of the book to find out why.

Soul Taker is nicely written. Alexander pulls you into her world that is warm and welcoming. The characters are well written. Kate is written with a large innocence and vulnerability, yet it is also her strength as well. Lucifer is luxurious and I love him and Kate’s banter. This book is to be a series and it’s a nice beginning. Alexander is on my radar and will be interested in what else this series brings.

Soul Taker Got Its First 5-Star Review

I’m very excited and grateful. ‘Soul Taker’ got its first 5-star review. This is amazing. I catch myself smiling all over the place.


“a wonderful start to a series”

REVIEWED BY: LINDA TONIS
MEMBER OF THE PARANORMAL ROMANCE REVIEW TEAM
Kate’s job as a Soul-Taker has been weighing heavily on her especially when there are children involved. Now she is given a new job as a Guardian Angel and her teacher is none other than Archangel Raphael (Rafe). Rafe and Kate will be working together for at least three or four years while she learns everything she needs to know.

A fight between demons finds her in Hell in the hands of Abbraxxas whose nickname is “The Butcher” because of his love for torture. When the Archangels finally rescue her she is near death and Rafe is always by her side. When she is well enough she is put through weeks of vigorous training to get her back in shape and during this time Kate and Rafe’s feelings for each other grow.

Kate appears to be a constant target for evil and the reason is finally revealed by Kate herself when she remembers something from her childhood. Of course there is no way I will reveal this important piece of information. The very next time she is caught off guard she finds herself face to face with Lucifer himself and he knows what she is capable of and wants her. Archangels to the rescue once again but there is much more to this story that I can reveal without giving too much away. There is no fun in reading a book when you know all the answers in advance.

I loved this book, a book about good vs. evil and a book filled with wonderful characters and a beautiful romance. I look forward to more in this series and truly highly recommend it. I actually read this book in a few hours that was how interesting it was.
