The Council Of Twelve Series – What Should Be Next?

The Council of Twelve series so far includes the first three books in the series.

You can find them here:

Katie is the sweetest angel we can imagine, a fantastic consort, emotionally stable, and still responsible, helpful, and caring. She’s Raphael’s perfect second half.

Sundance is the second female angel we meet in the series. She’s an exceptional angel in many ways, the first warrior angel in three centuries, she is blessed with many gifts and talented beyond her young age.

Zepheira is a strong-willed, stubborn woman, so far the fiercest female character in the series. As a half-angel, she is a raw diamond, and due to her nature, the only one holding Uriel’s fire.

During the entire series, we will recognize recurring characters and meeting new ones; in particular, are we going to meet ‘The Council of Twelve,’ including the twelve most powerful individuals existing, each one of them holding unique talents and powers.

Michael, Raphael, Gabriel, Uriel, Benadrel, Zachariel, Deonur, Tsechirel, Santanael, Centriel, Anghariel, and Simael.

The fight Good vs. Evil is present within each book, the tension climbs higher with each story.

In your opinion, what should happen next? Tell me in the comment. If you have an idea, want to write a short story that you think might fit the series, write it, please and send it to me: aurorajean.alexander@aol.com. Write ‘The Council of Twelve series on Writer’s Treasure Chest’ in the subject line.

I look forward to your emails.

Soul Taker Secrets: Interview With Nathan – Who Is He And Do We Meet Him Again?

To the readers of ‘Soul Taker,’ Nathan is a known character. He only shows up briefly at the beginning of the story. He takes Katie’s spot when she accepts her new tasks as a Guardian.

If you haven’t read ‘Soul Taker’ yet, it is time to read: I added the universal link where the book is available.

Below you will find an interview with Nathan. Read it and find out more about an Angel we only know by name – and by a perfectly tailored suit.

Excerpt from ‘Soul Taker’:

He looked over my shoulder, and I turned around, watching two beautiful looking men walking toward us. One of them was dressed in a suit and tie and looked elegant and chic like a businessman. The other one wore old jeans, cowboy boots, and a long-worn leather coat.

Joseph smiled. He introduced me to the business-like guy. “This is Nathaniel. He’s your replacement and will take your job over from here.”

The Guy shook my hand. “Please, call me Nate,” he said with a laugh.


Hello Nathan. It is great seeing you again. How are you doing?

Hello AJ. Nice to see you too. I’m doing okay. Unfortunately, I’m far too busy. Sometimes I wish I had more time off.

 

We know you took over from Katie when she wanted to become a Guardian and met Raphael. 

Yes, I did. I was quite surprised to hear the two fell in love. I was invited to their wedding but unfortunately couldn’t go because of an emergency.

 

Why were you surprised? From what I hear, Katie is breathtakingly beautiful, and Raphael, from what I heard, has celebrated quite some success with the ladies.

Yes, but we were taught that it is almost impossible for an Archangel to find his consort.  Raphael found his consort, and now we all are curious to see who of the Council Of Twelve is going to be next.

 

How about you? Is there someone special in your life?

I admit, there is someone I love. But I am not permitted to talk more about all that, remember? You told me to keep my mouth shut about that.

(Oh, yes. *AJ laughs* I forgot)

 

But now, tell us a little bit about you. Who is Nathan?

I am a Soul Taker, as you know. I have been one for about a millennium. I pick up souls and take them to their respective final destinations. Usually, it is Heaven, but occasionally I have to take them to the gates of Hell. Rarely we Soul Takers are attacked by the other side who try to steal the soul we are working with.

 

Now, we know Katie got tired of doing this job for three hundred years. Aren’t you tired out by that job?

Well, Katie and I are two completely different personalities. She is younger than I am, for one thing. Also, she is quite emotionally sensitive. I could easily imagine that a soul she takes to the portals of the Underworld is trashing, crying, regretting, screaming, is almost breaking her heart.

And we shouldn’t forget: We are taking all kinds of souls… not only bad ones, not only good ones, and in particular, we do have to pick up innocent souls too. That was very hard on Katie.

I had to harden my emotions and heart against this kind of compassion, or I could never have done that job to my satisfaction and the satisfaction of my bosses.

 

We met you briefly in Katie’s story. And now we learned a bit more about who you are. Are we going to meet you again?

Yes, you will meet me again. You will learn more about me. Just be a bit patient. I’ll be back.

 

Thank you so much for dropping in as my guest today, Nathan. We really appreciate it.

Thanks for having me. It was my pleasure.

Cover Reveal Sundance – 2nd Book Of The Council Of Twelve Series

I am very excited to get up in the morning and celebrate the cover reveal of SUNDANCE with you.

SUNDANCE is going to be released Mid August on Amazon and Smashwords.

Let me tell you how thrilled I am to be able to reveal another beautiful cover of the second book in ‘The Council Of Twelve Series.’

In this new book, we will meet a beautiful little girl, the only child of a couple who longed for a son or daughter. The girl tells her own story. She describes her childhood and how suddenly her entire situation changed when she had to say goodbye to her parents, her youth, and her entire known life. Find out how she develops and what becomes of the girl we knew as ‘Cara.’ Meet her, know her, love, laugh and cry with her and follow her every step into an existence where she needs to fight for everything she loves…

My cover was again designed by the talented Kathryn Jenkins, of KJ Magical Designs :

The cover shows our protagonist, Sundance, in a self-confident pose, before a ring of the fires of Hell. Even though Sundance looks innocent, almost shy, she is still one of the most unusual and most talented individuals. Trained and prepared for the battle ‘Good vs. Evil’ she is a valuable asset to the ‘Divine Army’ and therefore highly supported and protected by ‘The Council Of Twelve.’ The fires represent the opponents, the blue wings symbolize Sundance’s individuality and gifts.

I love this cover just as much as I love the first one.

Cover Reveal Soul Taker – 1st Book of The Council Of Twelve Series

Today I’m super excited to celebrate the cover reveal of SOUL TAKER, releasing Mid December on Amazon and Smashwords.

Before I get to the cover please let me express how thrilled I am to be able to reveal the awesome cover of my soon to be released novella Soul Taker, the first book in The Council Of Twelve Series.

In this book, Kate tells the story of how she wished she had another job instead of the one of a ‘Soul Taker’, which she did loyally and conscientiously for several centuries. She informs us how she got a different task and how from that moment on her entire existence changed. Let her take you to her world and meet the Good side with the Council of Twelve as well as the Other side and the darkness Kate suddenly is drawn into.

My cover was designed by the wonderful Kathryn Jenkins, of KJ Magical Designs :

 

The cover shows Kate, lost in thoughts about the ‘man’ she meets during the changes in her existence. The man with the black hair and the unbelievable eyes, an individual beyond our imagination, representing the Good in this world and standing by Kate’s side. Their work is taking place on Earth, represented by the city in the background.

I LOVE THIS COVER!!

A tribute to ALL Women…

Thank you very much Story Reading Ape, for mentioning my name when publishing this amazing tribute to women. It’s unique and it touches my heart and I’m sure the hearts of many others too. You’re a gem!

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

My thanks toAurora Jean Alexander  for sending me this

it’s one of the best tributes to women I’ve read

When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day…….

An angel came by and asked.” Why spend so much time on her?”

The lord answered. “Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her?”

●She must function on all kinds of situations.
●She must be able to embrace several kids at the same time.
●Have a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart.
●She must do all this with only two hands.
●She cures herself when sick and can work 18 hours a day.

The Angel was impressed” Just two hands…..impossible!

And this is the standard model?”

The Angel came closer and touched the woman.

“But you have made her so soft, Lord”.

“She is soft”…
