Read a little Snippet of Chapter 6 “To Save a Soul”

I decided to post a piece of Book One of “Legion of the Moonlight”.  I don’t see why it would spoil anything to let people see an short example of the book, so I grabbed a snippet of Chapter 6 entitled ‘To Save a Soul’ and posted it here.  Just a little peek into the book one of the series.  Book 2 is not quite finished.  Pick up Book One today:


***Start Snippet***

shotofmeadow2The dogs are on a trail that seems to lead Police to a location where Dylan might be.  They are searching on a hillside that is almost outside their jurisdiction but they let the dogs lead anyway.  Now while overlooking the plain below, and with the dogs still leading the way, a member of the search party spots a man with no shirt on by a creek side. He is taking some water to drink in his hands.  They hunker down and keep quiet.  “Okay I think we see our guy, everyone keep quiet and just let the dogs lead.”  A member Mack Green says as he then radios to Corporal Young who is overseeing the search.  “Jessie, Sir, we got him in our sights.  Well not exactly in our sights but we saw him getting a drink and the dogs are leading us to him now.  We are at the northeast hillside, where you can track our signal and back us up.”  Mack exclaims with covered up excitement.  “Okay ten-four Mack, just keep trailing him, we are on our way.”  Jessie replies.  As the dogs lead the team down the hill and the others start heading to that area, Dylan who is not in control of his body has gone back into his hideout.  It’s a farmer’s land they are on, and this farm has an old irrigation pump house that has been out of service for a long time now.  It is that shelter where the crazed Dylan has been hiding in.  He still knows not what he is doing nor does he have much memory of his Mom or the attack.

Legion had grabbed a hold on the helpless Dylan Evans during the séance they held over a week and a half ago and it had become restless from within him and decided to take action and began to energize through their new host.  He is now at the verge of death and the demons that live within Dylan know this.  They want to go into someone else that is healthy but they have to pass through in a ritual type way.  Something they cannot do without help.  Now with the search party at the bottom of the hill where their subject was spotted getting a drink, the dogs lead searchers toward the pump house that can now be seen from the break in the trees.  “Everyone wait right here!”  National Guard member Mack Green orders.  They all stay back where there is cover and begin to surround the small shack.  “How do you know he is in that little shack?”  Jessie Young who has now arrived asks.  “Pretty sure he is sir; the dogs are on his trail.”  Mack replies with confidence.  “We have men on the other side as well surrounding this guy.”  He tells Jessie.  Jessie then speaks through his bull horn toward the shack, telling Dylan to give up.  “End of the road Dylan, you are surrounded.  Now if you just come out and keep your hands up where we can see them, we can end this thing and get you the help you need and a nice warm place to relax.  What do you say?”

****End Snippet****

If the section of text from the book has you confused, it was kind of meant to.  In other words I have picked some of the writing that leaves one wondering how it got to that point.  You should be wondering what Legion is and how Dylan got himself on the run.  Who Dylan is etc…  Get Book One of Legion of the Moonlight here:

It seems impossible that anyone could remove just pieces of someone’s face right on down to the bone in a matter of seconds without some kind of object.  At least that is what investigators think.  The people think it is being done by an animal like someone’s half-crazed escaped chimpanzee.  It has been known that chimps would do this when attacking;  that for some reason they go for the removal of the face.  But who’s got a chimp that escaped?  There is no one in the town that is known to have such a pet and they certainly don’t inhabit the place naturally. Heather Taylor has just been released from Prison and had been declared ‘Time Served’ from her 25 year sentence after serving only 12 years.  She was locked up because she had stabbed her husband almost killing him but then snapped out of it and called for help.  They saved her husband and she went to prison for the crime.  Now all the town’s people convince the Police that Heather is the killer and that they must get her and lock her back up.  But eventually Police findings are as such that Heather is not their attacker.

So a big mystery remains in the small California town that has people super frightened and no one is caught yet.  This is the works of some evil monster many are proclaiming, so they call in a Bigfoot or Sasquatch expert to see if there could be any relation to such a thing but no squatch evidence is found either. But the pattern that investigators do uncover is that these gruesome mutilating killings are done by an animal, and it is something that tends to happen only during a full moon and under its light!  Paranormal investigatorsLegionofMoonlightCover suspect that it may just be the remnants of a case that had them driving out a Legion of Demons from one man early on in the story. There could be a connection to the fact that Dylan Evans had almost killed his own Mother before Police had to tranquilize him and confine him until they could determine what was causing him to go nuts.  A bazaar story of a mysterious terror in one town located east of the Sacramento Valley in California.  Twain Harte California can not rest until they find Legion of the Moonlight!
