Book 1: Arianna’s Choice
When Alexandria Grace Groaban was a child, she learned she was very different from others she encountered. She saw and heard things that no child should ever bear witness to. She knew details of things and people long since passed, and she could hear voices and repeat them in whatever language she heard during the scenes which played out before her young and impressionable eyes.
Through an encounter with one she thought to be her guardian angel, Alexandria was given a reprieve to know some normalcy in her childhood. But at the age of twenty-one, Alexandria returned home to her family’s small estate outside Oxford, England for Christmas, and learned the hard way that her grace period was about to come to an abrupt and vicious end.
Now, she will find herself on the edge of a great precipice. One that will call her into action and into a world that she could never have fathomed existed. For Alexandria to know who and what she truly is, she will have to rise to the challenge of a battle waged for millennia by beings first spoken of in Genesis, and embrace that which has lay dormant within her since childhood.

And just when she was sure that peace had settled over her family, as they await the birth of Wallace’s child, danger strikes in the blink of an eye.
On an innocuous night in London, Alex is stunned to find herself at the center of a coordinated attack by children of the Fallen – while she is alone. She valiantly defends her life, only to discover that her life is now the prize in a brilliantly spun game by those vying for power within the ranks of the darkness.

Book 7: The Choice to Overcome
A perfect storm – that is what the Fallen and their children called it, and what they have been patiently waiting and watching for where Alexandria Grace Marcus is concerned. Through all her trials and tribulations as she returned to the Lord’s Nephilim, the dark ones have anticipated such a period in Alex’s life. Banked on it, in fact. A time during which they might seize advantage and make it count in their favor – not the Lord’s.
Even Alex’s dear friend Jackson Campbell sees the coming dark tide. And his observation, that the generals don’t march until the foot soldiers have already advanced across the field, resonates deeply with Alex and her brethren. For they feel the shift in the struggle between good and evil just as she does. Something more is looming over the horizon and something, somewhere, is very wrong.
Now, Alexandria and Gaius must join forces with their angelic fathers and fellow Nephilim in ways they have never imagined before, to not only hold back the encroaching tide of evil, but also defeat it. Mankind is counting on their bravery, as well as a new immortal compatriot whom Alex will befriend in startling new ways for both sides – proving, once again, that good will always triumph over evil.

The last few years have brought so many changes and trials into Alexandria Marcus’ life, yet so much joy and love as well. She’s come to understand what it means to lead the Lord’s Nephilim, and grown in many ways, becoming stronger, wiser and braver than ever before. And it is these qualities which Alex must now draw from as a new threat erupts and overshadows her temporary reprieve.
Alex knows the fallen still hunt her and want her power. Yet never would she have imagined the lengths they would go to, or the new and despicable game they’ve instigated, in order to claim her. As Alex, Gaius, and their brethren face the new traps set to ensnare Alex and her newest friend, Than, Alex is startled to find that the biggest threat is actually coming from within. For the deaths are mounting and weighing heavily on her soul as it soaks up all of the emotions and energy she encounters – both good and bad.
To triumph over Abaddon and Danyul, Alex must make difficult decisions and costly personal sacrifices with far-reaching consequences. But as she has learned before – the Light will outshine the darkness every time. It is that unfailing faith that will see Alexandria, Than and a few other dark immortals through. Those who, like Than, just might be ready for a change.
“This book continues to teach us that no matter what the darkness brings, we can still call on the Name above all Names…..JESUS! And know that God allows His Heavenly Host to watch over.”
CIR: What inspired this trilogy and series?
WILSON: As a child I heard about Nephilim in church and was always intrigued by the idea that the ‘heroes of old’ truly existed. A few years ago a piece of instrumental music caused me to visualize some of the critical scenes in the first three books which lay the groundwork for the series.
CIR: Do you have a target audience in mind?
WILSON: I am truly writing this series for any adult. They are for any person who likes to let their mind escape into a fantasy world, but who also likes to feel goodness, kindness and strength in the main characters. I’ve written the series for those who like to see the struggle we face in our daily choices and how free will factors into those choices.
CIR: Is there any content our readers need to be aware of?
WILSON: Throughout the series there are battle scenes that involve sword fighting and may include injury, beheading and death, but no graphic descriptions are included. There is the occasional use of a swear word, but these are used very sparingly. Love scenes do exist, but they are tasteful, respectful, and not graphically described.
