Her guardian angel was the only thing she held onto from her religious upbringing. She stifled the voice in her head and grabbed her briefcase. There was too much to think about, too much that could wait for another day. Right now she had to confront one of the reasons she’d spoken to Janine in the first place: her client who claims to be the Angel of Death. Taking a deep breath and opening her office door with briefcase in tow, Sophia walked out of her office and into the big, bad world.

From the Author:

Dear Reader,

Thank you forpurchasing the first book of the Last Prophet series. I hope you enjoy readingThe Last Prophet: Guarding Sophia. This has been a work in progress over thepast year, but ultimately began in 1999 when a colleague and I were talkingabout angels, and I began to write ideas for stories about the archangels. Igrew up as a "cradle" Roman Catholic, and as a young adult I developed afondness and love for angels, specifically the archangels. I continue tobelieve the angels to be supernatural creatures of such great holiness, beauty,power, and intelligence that no one can truly describe what they are like. WhatI do think I understand or know is that they are not like human beings. Theyare not like us, and yet they somehow love us because God loves us. It is avery comforting thought to know that they want us to love God as He loves usand as THEY love and adore Him.

This first bookwas originally intended to be a standalone novel, but as I continued to writeideas for stories on the archangels, I realized that the last prophetcharacter, Sophia, was embarking on a journey that should not end with just onebook. It was as if Sophia herself was telling me to let her tell the storieswith me. The next books in the five book series will not only cover Sophia'sjourney as the last prophet, but will include five archangels as guardianprotectors at some point when they encounter a soul in need of an angel.Various characters will aid the last prophet on her mission to convey God'smessage to the world somehow, as well as the struggle of the people she willencounter with her archangel and other archangels along the way. I do hope youwill read the other four books, and enjoy reading the story I have writtenhere.

I am an avid readerand a writer, but by training I am a counselor and an educator. I firmlybelieve that every person has a story to tell, but sadly so few people want toshare their story because others have not expressed interest in hearing it. Ialso believe that so many of our young people today would be in a much betterplace mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually if the stories theywere told and tell themselves were positive, encouraging, uplifting, andloving. Lessons learned are wonderful, and not every story has a happy ending.However, not every story has to end in tragedy either, and not every lesson isa hard one to learn. It is my hope that the story you read here will not justbe a good read, but a touching experience that inspires you to continue withyour own search and developing the story that is your life.

Thank you againfor purchasing this book. I love meeting new and interesting people, and wouldlike the chance to interact with readers who are moved by this book. I am anemail, internet, Facebook, and smartphone junkie, so you can reach me at starofsolitude@gmail.com, or check out mywebpage at clairegager.weebly.com. I look forwardto meeting you, and to bringing you many more stories.

Happy reading!
