When Kingdom Come
D H Blake
Juan Reyes thought he was normal, though he dreamed of being something more. He sought out the spotlight, on stage and screen, and thought he had found where he truly belonged. Until one day, dragged along on a misguided adventure in the woods by a group of friends and acquaintances with too much time on their hands, a strange and violent encounter turns his life upside down.
Juan learns that he once had another name, another race, and a whole other reality that he can hardly accept―a reality in which alien civilizations exist, and men can shake off the bonds of gravity and fly free. But there is a cost, and it is paid in blood.
Offered the chance to rejoin his people, accepting their strange and sometimes brutal ways at the expense of his conscience and the woman he loves, Juan has to make a choice. Does he side with them against the only people he has ever known―people who are determined to eliminate the alien threat―or side with humanity, and turn his back on who he really is?
It's an impossible choice, and he's running out of time.
D. H. Blake has always been fascinated by history, psychology, astrology, and the idea of altered realities. When Kingdom Come is his first novel, and the culmination of years of study and rumination. A professional musician, drummer, and songwriter, Blake finds inspiration in the human condition and draws deeply from that for his writing.
As the father of five children, he considers himself truly blessed, and works hard to ensure that he never takes them, or any of God's gifts, for granted. “Every minute of raising them has been a miracle,” says Blake.
He currently lives with his wife, an illustrator, and their three young children.
