Second Chances – A “Chosen” Short Story by Jeff Altabef and Erynn Altabef
3D-SecondChances 
Precious and rare, second chances must be earned, but has Ayden done enough to win his?

~~~~~

One night changes everything.
One chance meeting forces a young man to make a choice.
Will he do what’s right?
Or what’s easy?

Ayden is forced to remember old secrets he’d rather not reveal when his daughter returns home with questions about his shadowy past and dangerous legacy. Will she understand when he tells her about the night mysterious strangers came to his sleepy Arizona town looking for a local medicine man?

As his tale unfolds, Ayden pieces together the mystery that connected a recent murder, the strangers, and the medicine man’s bizarre behavior.

Will he allow old demons to rule him, or will he get a second chance?

AND SO….

We hope you’ll take advantage of these wonderful opportunities to spread the joy and power of reading to the younger set in your life. And as always, we thank you so much for your support.

Up Next

Watch for the third book in the “A Nephilim Thriller” series of fantasy thrillers to release November 4, 2019.

It turns out that hell and Lucifer aren’t what I imagined. That’s a good thing, although I’m still forced to make a deal with the Devil, one that might trigger the Apocalypse. Not at my best, I’m compelled to walk a tricky line. I’ve already sworn an oath to Father Paul and the light angels, but if that oath was based on falsehoods, does it still bind me?

Hank’s best friend sends him a message that he’s in trouble, and we return to Charleston to sort it out. We suspect the worst, but what should be a simple case turns out to be anything but. A terror they call the Vampire is killing kids. I can sense that he’s not human, but he’s not an angel or a demon either. He’s something else.

Hank and I will put everything on the line to figure out what happened to his friend, and shut down whoever is terrorizing his hometown. I’m suspicious this is all tied to the End of Days and my untenable position between light and darkness.

Hopefully, the Fates will be kind to me.

EVOLVED PUBLISHING PRESENTS an intriguing, thrilling look inside a great battle between good and evil, possibly leading to the End of Days, with the third book in the award-winning “A Nephilim Thriller” series.
