Written in the year 1435, the Book of Chaos predicted the rise of the Devil, coming from the gate of hell and overthrowing the world into chaos and destruction. Creatures from only a nightmare were taken from the depths of hell and thrown into the lives of humans. Vampires, Zombies, Banshees, Werewolves and other hellish creatures now have free roam throughout the world.
It was also written that a magic spell would create a group of fighters that would be given the skill to fight the evil hoards and eventually take down the Devil herself, when the words were written. Passed down through the generations, the Pope of the Catholic Church is given a choice he must take, read from the book. Five lives will be changed in the wake of the words but for the cause of saving the world.
If we wait too long, there might not be an earth to save any more.
Another year has passed after the last choices I made. It did not work as well as I had planned. We did rescue my mother, bringing her to the small hospital in the town I had been staying in. After my choices, the consequences were almost immediate. My father's army rolled into the small town, killing everyone in sight and arresting Kaleb and my mother, sending them back to the castle dungeon.
In my last attempt to take my father's regime down, I have made allies with English, American, Australian and Rebellion Armies. With a plan in motion, now is the time for the ultimate choice.
Do I attack my father, trying to destroy everything he claims as his own. The potential of my mother and Kaleb dying or do I give up and surrender myself, possibly ending in all three of our lives? With one last choice to make, the consequences for this one are life-ending.
It's been a year, the consequences of my last choice are starting to roll in. Saving Kaleb's life not only put me on the traitor list, my mother is prisoner in the castle, people are being killed more often and my ex-best friend has taken my role in the regime.
As I try desperately to save my mother before my father decides to do something rash, I must make more choices that will deal more consequences. Do I save my mother from my father's evil clutches or do I take Kaleb and run away to the United States of America where I can prepare for war, knowing full well my mother will be executed?
More choices, more consequences. Can I handle these ones?
My job description is simple, I am a Contract Assassin in my father's regime. I spend my days at school, getting an education to take on the role of Prime Minister when the time comes. At night, that's when I chase down convicts, traitors and people that are trying to destroy what my family has created in the country of Aurora. They are either arrested and tried or they are executed for resisting arrest. I have been doing this for eleven years, starting at the tender age of fourteen.
I did not enjoy my job, but it kept my father in good spirits, he trusted me with his life. It was supposed to be cut and dry, every contract he gave me was someone I knew would corrupt the regime and try to destroy anything and everything to do with the DeWinter family. That is until my father gives me a contract to kill someone my age, someone that has nothing to do with the cause. He's the son of the Rebellion Leader ... someone I have been in love with for a decade.
My choices are now in front of me; I can finish the contract and kill someone my age, someone I love or I can choose to defy my father, possibly ending in my life. With these choices come consequences, am I ready for them?
In the final installment of the Seasons Experience Collection, Mattie Hawkins fell for the wrong guy. His feelings for Martin Fall got the best of him and he ended up sending the divorce papers to Myles. Once where he wanted him, Martin ran away with not only Mattie's life savings but also his heart. Shattered once again, Mattie leaves the city of Saskatoon, forcing himself to find a better place, feeling lost and confused. He ends up moving to a small town in northern Alberta, far away from the Winters family as well as his almost ex-husband.
This is where he meets Macauley Spring, a man whose life has been destroyed by his religious parents. Feeling vulnerable, both men find solace in the presence of each other talking over coffee. They learn new things about themselves and as Mattie helps Macauley with his life, he starts to learn what it really means to forgive, forget and change who you are to better your relationships with others.
Mattie Hawkins is in love, so in love in fact he doesn't even notice the obvious that is sitting right in front of him. His whirlwind romance to Myles Summers ended up with a marriage for the young man, leaving him with the feeling of contentment and hopefulness after losing Morgan Winters. Although he feels more love than ever, something seems amiss about Myles. Later nights at the office, spending weekends away fishing with his boss, he seems to be away more than he is home. On his twenty-sixth birthday Mattie receives a gift from a mysterious guest which blows the lid on the three year long affair Myles is having with his boss.
With his romantic life in shambles, Mattie is confused and hurt. He spends all his time working in the cafe he opened a few years ago, immersing himself in the smell of the coffee mixing with the baked goods. When a man by the name of Martin Fall comes into Mattie's cafe, he never expected him to be more than just another customer. He soon learns about the heartbreak and destruction of this man's marriage when his husband dies in a freak car accident. He feels compelled to understand and help this Martin fellow.
Is this just a coincidence or could it be fate that brought these two men together? Can Martin make Mattie see the good in his marriage to Myles or is he trying to make Mattie see the good with him?
In this heartfelt romance, Mattie Hawkins, fifteen-years-old, leaves his old homophobic classmates behind when he moves to the town of Saskatoon. Mattie is late for his first day at his intimidatingly large new school, but he isn’t the only one. When Mattie and seventeen-year-old Morgan Winters both reach for the door, their hands touch and electricity erupts through their bodies, and both boys know they have found the one. Mattie is coy, quiet, and easily flustered when he sets his eyes on the cool and collected Morgan. From his constant bedhead hair and carefree laugh to the way he always had a camera attached to his shoulders, Mattie was drawn to the crazy carefree charming and lovable mess that was Morgan Winters.
These two boys navigate friendship, acceptance, growth and love with their two best friends: Jenny, the lovable spitfire, and Julian, the teddy bear jock. Along the way, Mattie and Morgan discover a love so strong, so deeply intertwined in each other’s hearts that nothing can come between them, or can it? A faraway college looms over their heads and an unforeseeable circumstance threatens to break their seemingly impossible bond. Join these two on their journey to see if Mattie and Morgan’s love will prove strong enough to beat the odds or if the love they’re building will come crashing down around them.
