“Exciting and fast-paced…an excellent story that teens, as well as adults, will enjoy!” -Lisa Wroble, author and reviewer
The Award-Winning Finalist in the Teen and Fiction: Fantasy category of the 2020 Best Book Awards and the Feathered Quill Awards!
Kalib Andrews leads a typical teen life. He loves his job at the local diner, his childhood bestie keeps things lively with his conspiracy theories, and a girl he likes at school may actually be interested in him.
Yet, Kalib is anything but typical. In fact, he has no idea who he really is—a point he would not argue since he knows he’s adopted. But when those he is supposed to trust turn out to want him dead to fulfill an ancient prophecy. He is thrust into a war—a thousand years in the making—and is forced to face his destiny.
Packed full of exhilarating action, suspense, mystery, and magic, this is the first book in an exciting series that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The Last Angel Warrior is the perfect read for Potter and Jackson Fans.
Targeted Age Group:: 12-18
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
When I was a kid, I LOVED fantasy. Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, the Lord of the Rings, and even the Percy Jackson series (though I was a little older when that came out). But the one thing I never saw as a kid was a hero that looked like me. As an African American, I wanted kids to see heroes that looked like them among the myriad of eurocentric protagonists. I wanted BIPOC kids to know that they are more than just the sidekick. So I wrote a book that reflected the world I wanted to see. When people tell me they read my books, they tell me that they were inspired by the diversity represented in my books. And this inspires me to keep writing.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I find inspiration for characters everywhere! People that I know. People that I don’t know. People on the street. I love observing people. And I love studying their behavior; in a lot of ways, I find myself questioning why they do what they do.
In other ways, I feel as if my characters introduce themselves to me. For example, when writing the story, sometimes a character shows up that I didn’t know I needed until I began writing them.
Writing is a lot like excavating. You uncover it little by little until the whole thing reveals itself, and I feel the same way about my characters.
