The Sacrifice Series - Volumes One - Three
by A.C. Heller
Volume 1 - Fate
Chasca Leon grew up in foster care and never spent a lot of time making friends. There were things about her people just wouldn’t understand. Things even she didn’t understand. She lived a very quiet life, going to work, and going home, never intentionally seeking adventure. This is, until she was kidnapped. Chasca cannot comprehend why someone would kidnap her and she only discovers why once she is rescued by two gorgeous militant men. While under their protection she learns that she is not human and that the strange things that have been occurring all her life were all because she is of the Nephilim bloodline.
Fate has never been a thing Chasca has concerned herself with but once she learns that she is part of an ancient prophecy she begins to understand that she is truly in danger. Her protectors do everything they can to keep her out of harm’s way but there’s only so much that can be done when your ward is a headstrong mouthy woman.
Volume 2 - Chance
Pandora has been under the care of The Sapient since she was a young child. This is the life that she knows. When an army of men from The Order led by Aiden Ripley break into the prison in which she is kept, she is forced to make the decision to stay or leave. What The Order does not know is that Pandora’s captivity is for the good of all men. Once her abilities have been unleashed, terror and death will rain down on everyone around her.
Convinced that she can control her abilities and live as normal as is possible within the care of The Order, Pandora leaves her captors. Pandora comes to be known as simply Dora to those she befriends. She forms a fast bond with those around her while hiding her capabilities for fear of dismissal. However, when the lives of those she loves are endangered by the very same men she had escaped she is forced to make one of the hardest choices of her life. All decisions are based on possibilities and chances. Whether the results are joyful or dire rests in the hands of a young woman who knows nothing save for the life lived as a captive with clutches for the control to reign herself and her abilities.
“Chance knows not of the divine, nor the strands of fate. It is but a ripple in our precarious existence, easily overseen, seldom noticed.”

“One’s mental fortitude, one’s mettle, aligned with one’s will is the most formidable human attribute. No man, machine, nor divine intervention can supersede. The will to persevere, no matter the odds, ignites the soul like a beacon. Illuminating the obstacles on their path and turning them to dust in its wake.”
