In an ancient world, a darkness was unearthed. 5,000 years ago, that Darkness walked among men and they were heralded as Gods, and for a season, prosperity was given to the Northern Tribes, until Legion appeared among them and destroyed all but a handful of the Anicent Ones. Today, a hero must take his place amongst his forefathers and rectify the events that changed the world he knows. But will he overcome the darkness that rules his own heart?

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – July 2008
US-BASED PRESS PUBLISHES LOCAL WRITER’S DEBUT NOVEL
Local Australian writer C A Milson’s, debut novel has been published by US-based Amira Press.
The Chosen, the first in a planned trilogy, follows Alex whose life is turned upside down by an accident. Alex becomes an unwitting hero as he attempts to rebuild his life while fighting an ancient evil recently awakened. Alex’s battle is not only with these external forces, but also with his demons within.
The Chosen has been enthusiastically received by the horror writing community, with fellow horror writer Lee Pletzers praising the novel for its strong characterisation. “The Chosen has a lot of promise,” Pletzers says. “Learning the characters is the fun part.”
Milson describes his work as a new take on the supernatural horror genre. “The Chosen touches on different supernatural influences, not just the traditional doctrines that many believe in,” Milson explains. “I explored different theologies and superstitions and decide to write something that would touch on all these idealisms.”
After initially drawing inspiration an eerie picture of a dimly-lit and isolated shack, Milson penned an earlier incarnation of The Chosen as the short story Shack of Evil. It was this story and this exploration of the supernatural that Milson found himself constantly returning to. “I have always been fascinated by the spiritual and the supernatural,” he says. “When I wrote The Chosen, I wanted to write something that had never been done before. I wanted to delve into the world of the unseen.”
Before publishing The Chosen, Milson travelled extensively and worked in marketing management. Now freelancing, Milson devotes the majority of his time to writing the sequel Bloodline of Darkness.
Readers can purchase a copy of The Chosen directly from Amira Press, http://www.amirapress.com.
“I’m warning you again to leave this town. It’s ours,” the voice echoed. Alex froze and glanced around the room in hope of seeing something, anything. But still, there was nothing. “After all, what can you do, a mere mortal, against us? While you are one, we are many.” – The Chosen by C A Milson
