Meet My Character: Alex Manning from The Chosen Series
Posted by authorcamilson
Welcome to the Meet My Character blog tour! Emmy Z. Madrigal invited me to this blog tour, and she is an amazing author. Go check her out here: SweetDreamsNovel.com
Is he/she fictional or a historic person? Fictional
When and where is the story set? This story is set in the very not to distant future
What should we know about him/her? For those who has read previous books in The Chosen series, you will know that Alex has a very hard time dealing with anything that he cannot control (Yes, he’s a bit of a control freak). He hates conflict. He hates what lays in the darkness. He despises that he was “chosen” to put an end to the oncoming Apocalypse. He would rather spend his Saturday afternoon watching the football and have a few beers with his mates, or hitting the clubs and picking up girls.
What is the main conflict? Alex has been Chosen to make a stand and stop an oncoming Apocalypse before it starts. At the start of the series, he is an ordinary bloke, with a 9 to 5 job, and a real shitty life. A real underdog. Before he really knows what is going on, he in thrust into a world of one supernatural incidents after another and soon discovers that he is the “one” pre-destined to save humanity. From that point on, he must face demons, fight imaginations, and loose his life in order to regain it. What really messes him up is, not only is he fighting demonic forces that make the Antichrist look like a Sunday School picnic, but is his own fold he has people who set out to betray him. There are 2 main characters in Alex’s life. Karen, who decides to hook up with Alex for her own best interests, and ends up staying with him for years, and Jamiesonn.. A supernatural being who has a personal vendetta against everyone.
There are other characters along the way in the main three books (Rise Of The Darkness, Bloodline Of Darknesss and Prophecy’s End), such as the fallen angel Tanzac (Who was one of the angels cast out of paradise at the beginning of time). Tanzac is a supernatural being who has the notion that if he can destroy the Chosen One, maybe.. just maybe, he can unleash Hell on Earth and make humanity suffer an eternity of torment.
So not only does Alex have Jamiesonn to content with, but also Tanzac and his horde of demons.
What is the personal goal of the character? His personal goal – or hope – is that this is just a bad dream and someday he will wake up. Failing that, then he hopes that one day the Apocalypse will be stopped and he can get back to a somewhat normal life.
Is there a working title for this novel, and can we read more about it? Prophecy’s End is the title. Snippets here and there are released on my blog from time to time.
When can we expect the book to be published? The first three books are available now in Print and Ebook. I would hope that this final chapter in Alex’s life will be released in 2015. Then again, it is a matter of when I can get my own thinking in line and get my focus back on finishing this story 🙂
