In a fight against fate, only the strongest will survive
Welcome to N.J. Simmonds’s The Indigo Chronicles
A gritty and bold saga about love lost and found set against the backdrop of Spain and London, The Indigo Chronicles mixes contemporary fantasy, romance, history, and esoteric mystery, focusing on destiny and the invisible threads that bind us.
“The idea for the series came directly from my own imagination,” says author N.J. Simmonds. “There is a certain ‘truth’ to many of the past life, spiritual, and angelic references. In 2005, I backpacked around Australia and Asia for fifteen months, and in that time I studied a variety of topics, from astrology and gem stones to reiki and meditation. Seven years of research went into this trilogy, and at forty-one years of age, an entire lifetime of fascination with religion, esoteric powers, spirituality, and alternative healing have also contributed. But I’ve added my own twist in places, because that’s the best part about writing fantasy fiction!”
When Son of Secrets opens, Ella has been waiting for Zac for three years. Although she’s convinced he’ll return for her, fate has other plans. When Josh is thrown back into her life, Ella has a choice: step back onto her rightful path, or wait for the one who dared her to rebel. But Ella’s not the only one missing Zac. Luci has been searching for her blue-eyed boy for over two millennia and will stop at nothing to get him back. Even if that means tracking down the only girl he ever loved.
Meanwhile, Zac’s father, Archangel Mikhael, and Archangel Gabriel are plotting to interfere with Luci’s plans. Will they succeed before she can exact her revenge? From Tuscany 5BC to 17th century witch hunts, Ella, Zac, Luci, and Sebastian’s lives have been forever intertwined. The time has finally come to complete the circle.
