I’m hosting a snippet today from fantasy novel “Counterpoint”. Enjoy!

Book Excerpt

“Things are changing Mr Bassett. A storm is approaching this world and not one living thing can escape it. Events are about to unfold which will place you and your family at the centre. Just remember, nothing is as it seems. Trust no one. When the time comes, stand firm,” he said, before vanishing in front of his eyes. No smoke, no noise, nothing. He simply vanished. David took a moment to breathe, and wipe the sweat from his forehead. He suddenly realised a distinct coldness had overtaken the room as a result of the presence of this creature. His breath made small clouds of vapour in the frigid space. He turned round and looked into the mirror, which was now iced. He was light-headed and sick to the stomach. After splashing his face with warm water, he composed himself and went back to the bar to try and enjoy the rest of the night. That may have been asking too much.

Counterpoint

Counterpoint CoverTitle: Counterpoint

Author: Daniel Rafferty

Genre: Scifi/Fantasy

Move over “War of the Worlds,” we’ve got bigger issues to deal with now!  In author Daniel Rafferty’s “Counterpoint,” things aren’t always as they seem—but what, exactly, does that mean?   Is it time for the fight to the end between good and evil, Heaven and Hell? Is it the beginning of Armageddon and the end of time?

It all starts out innocently enough when 12-year-old Mary asks her father where he’s off to, which happens to be one of mankind’s worst endeavours, a World War.  But the story quickly moves beyond earthly boundaries, with angels, demons, the devil, archangels and even humans with supernatural powers, coming together to fight a battle between right and wrong, good and evil.  And the powers-that-be are acting on God’s behalf, but is he just watching from a distance to see what happens? What’s God’s role in all of this—and will he be back to save the day—does he even still exist?

You may think you know the storyline, with so many familiar biblical names being thrown about like fresh holy water; however, there are strange twists and turns that’ll leave you wondering who the good guys and bad guys really are. Is Lucifer actually the devil incarnate or do we humans have it all wrong?  Is Archangel Michael really who we think he is? Can all angels be trusted and are some demons good? It’s a mixed up dimension of space and time when you’re dealing with supernatural entities and human beings—and whose to be trusted?

Beyond the clear symbolism of names such as Mary, Gabriel, David, Ariel and others, what role does the Bassett family play and why does everyone seem to have plans for them?  Why have they been chosen among all other families on earth to do what they do? What have they been selected to do? Will they realize their roles in time to save the planet and the universe as we know it or are they just pawns in a much bigger scheme?

This epic tale takes places from Liverpool to London, to the Scottish and Welsh highlands and over to Dublin—but the end-game results will either be salvation or total destruction of the entire world—and the outcome is still not certain. Is God’s human experiment over—or will we continue for another millennium?  To find out, you must stop what you’re doing right now and read the pages of this exciting story! Say your prayers and hope someone’s listening!
