Angelic Heroes: Child of Light

In a fictitious world called Gaia, explore the city of Arcadia during its Great Depression.  Despite a convoluted history of war, religion, and corruption, an ancient prophecy points to this city as the One’s birthplace for the second coming.  When the child of light appears, he or she will be the beacon to reveal the second coming and a vessel to thwart the evil brewing in this autocratic society. 

Only God has the power of creation, but during this time alchemists not only have the power to transmute metals, but also to transmute human beings into superior beings.  No one knows exactly how the superior beings acquire their power, but once the dormant power is unleashed it is unstoppable.  From childhood to adult years, follow the life story of several Arcadians some of which belong to the superior race.  Those who believe the prophecy believe the child of light will be one of the superior beings.  However, with the House of Lords interfering with the lives of Arcadians the believers will have to find the child of light before they do. 

Child of Light is the debut novel from the author D. C. Cowan is the second story in a series of three. Chronologically, the first story, Book of Omni, starts hundreds of years in the past during the Arcadian Revolution occurring during the time of the One’s first coming.  The third story, Mount of Truth, finishes the trilogy with an epic journey around the world to discover the truth of the mystical city hidden in the mountains said to be the dwelling place of the One on earth.
