A dark psychological thriller with suspense, fantasy and romance. Set in a modern day real world, Death of Ignorance combines mythology and religion from around the world into a unique and spellbinding tale. After witnessing the grisly murder of his father, Alex Sharrock renounced religion and forsook God. Now, nearly thirteen years after the unsolved crime, nineteen year old Alex lives a wild, unbridled existence beneath the neon lights of New York City night clubs and blinding white flashes from paparazzi cameras. Yet neither fame as the lead singer for a popular rock band nor drugs can mask his dark past. Haunted by persistent memories, plagued with relentless nightmares, and on the brink of insanity, Alex attempts to take his life. However, his failure not only results in his record company sending him abroad to rehab, but creates a chain reaction that sends his life spiraling in an unimaginable direction: Death, in the guise of a beautiful young girl is after him, at least so he believes until she reveals herself to him. Her name is Ellie, and she is his Guardian Angel sent to help him in his time of need. Student to the young God, Hermes, Ellie explains to Alex that there is more to religion than an Atheist such as himself could ever imagine, for in a world separate from his exists Gods, Goddess, and Angels who all serve under the Almighty. Likewise, there is another world, one ruled by Satan and inhabited by his bloodthirsty minions, creatures Alex has been able to see since his father's murder, yet believed were hallucinations. With the discovery that his daemons are more than just creations of a sick mind, Alex is confronted with an even more startling truth: he is a Seer, the last of a race believed to have been eliminated by Satan's army centuries before. With this knowledge, Alex also discovers that his father's murder was no random act of violence, but Satan's first failed attempt at destroying Alex before he turned twenty and joined the Gods in eradicating evil's influence in the world. Now there is little time to waste. With his father's killers in fast pursuit and his birthday ever approaching, Alex must struggle to survive with the help of the Gods, all the while combating his sickness and his ever crippling ignorance.
