In Lieu of Light
by Wayne Jackson
Available May 2008
Chantelle and Sabrina Le’Noach are two sisters brought up with unyielding ideas of good and bad, sinful and honorable, moral and immoral as they embark on a journey into unimaginable evil.
In Lieu of Light Volume One begins with Sabrina, Chantelle and their brother Philip living relatively charmed lives as the offspring of a former slave and her master. One night their tranquil lives as protected children are shattered by lusty wanting and racial hatred. As they race to escape their pursuers they find centuries old evil in the night searching for sanctuary. Soon the predators pursuing them become the prey unleashing a furious flash of death; Sabrina is taken, Chantelle is left battered and bruised and their brother lay dying on the riverbank.
In a story that spans centuries, Wayne Jackson weaves a tale of evil seeking redemption as the sisters take different paths in a search for some measure of peace in souls emptied by an unquenchable thirst for blood and power
