I’ve been running from my past for one hundred years. And I’m still just a teenager.
I was selected by my teacher, Sensei, to train in The Dimension: a secret place of refuge for the ‘anomalies’ of past, present, and future earth. Here I would learn to connect to my ‘warrior within’ as Sensei calls it - to channel energy orbs, commute between realms, and even shape-shift into an alternate form. But never did I guess that my training would include taking on an anomaly student of my own: a loose cannon of a college guy named Ion.
Late one evening, I invite him over to Sensei’s house for a little chat; one that will turn his life upside-down. Shoving him into the broom closet turned portal, I drag Ion into the Dimension, opening his eyes to his true homeland: a realm of anomalies. His kin.
As we train to become Protectors of future Earth, battling each other as well as our own demons, I begin to realize that there’s more to Ion than I originally thought: a darkness he’s spent his life running from. And beyond that, a looming threat hidden in plain sight - something that could destroy me, him, and the future of Earth.

"It made me think, left me gasping from truths, and nearly in tears over the raw, emotional power of the story. From the first word, I was swept away on a wild ride that I won't be forgetting anytime soon."
“I haven't read such an original story or one that completely captivated my attention in a long time. I'm intrigued, excited, scared, and more. And I have missed that feeling.”
"The Blood Race doesn’t shy away from controversial issues. I love the diversity of races, origins, and backgrounds in the characters, as well as the book’s candor about struggles each of us face, such as temptation, deception, fear, and anger. The spiritual depth in this book is rare among young authors. I felt myself resonating with each word of wisdom spoken by Sensei, each truth that Hawk and Ion learn, each battle won. The Blood Race is a prime example of transformational fiction, entertaining but also expounding spiritual truth."
