Behind the scenes look at Daughter of Illusion
During my research for Home, I learned about the hierarchy of Angels, which was something that I'd never considered. But as I read, I discovered more than I'd ever dreamed to be possible, and it stood to reason that the Fallen remained in the hierarchy no matter their status. Of course, I've always known and believed that there were more than one Fallen Angel besides Lucifer. However, with the reference of the devil or Satan in other text, I thought they were just other names for Lucifer, then I realized as I studied that the terms were lumping all of the Fallen into these two words.
When I finished writing Home, I thought that was the end of my walk with the Fallen Angels, but I was wrong. A few years later, after reviewing my notes for it, I knew it wasn't done and started thinking about how I could pick it up again, and turn more of what I learned into more stories. As I mused and toyed with idea, I grabbed a few characters from Home (I left Cody alone for the most part; he's still freaked out with his encounter with Belphegor) with Eli Thompson being the main character from the past, and I introduced Detective Jonas Wechsler to the world; his name is an anagram for mine.
Being that the majority of the Fallen Angels seem to be male, I had to dig deeper when I began writing Daughter of Illusion to find the perfect Succubus. When I came across Agrat bat Mahlat, I knew she was the one I wanted as the antagonist. Using pieces of what I'd learned about her and adding to her character, I created the Daughter of Illusion.
My short story, The Vow, is the prequel to Daughter of Illusion. For the month of October, you can download it for free by clicking here. Don't worry, if you don't read Home or The Vow first, you'll still understand what's happening.
About Daughter of Illusion
Eli Thompson has witnessed many disturbing things in his life, but when he has a vision of despicable acts, he isn’t sure what to do until he is told that he needs to leave his comfortable home in Wyoming and go to Denver, CO. When he arrives there, he still doesn’t know why he’s there until his senses lead him to a restaurant in LODO where a grisly act has occurred.
After Eli is arrested by Detective Jonas Wechsler for being at a crime scene, they discover that other crimes where the perpetrator has vanished have happened and are entwined with the same Fallen Angel, Agrat bat Mahlat, who desires to bring about change to the world by sacrificing men to Samael. Quickly, they learn that there are other players in this vile plan, one a pawn to carry out the Fallen Angel’s orders, and two siblings, who were separated at birth.
Eli and Jonas, against the wishes of their Watchers, decide to confront Agrat, finding themselves in a precarious predicament.
