After 2000 years walking the earth, Judas Iscariot, has seen more horror than he had ever hoped to see.
Punished by God for the betrayal of his son Jesus Christ, he is forced to live out the existence of a broken man for eternity, unable to die. Although immortal, he has been bound by rules; never allowed to find love, raise a family, or make use of the items of wealth that he has acquired over the two millennia.
Throughout time, God has given him tasks that he could not refuse where his skill with a sword has proved to be invaluable in smiting wayward demons and, at the end of 2012, an angel, the messenger of God presents him with his greatest and most important mission. For three days, he is to protect six-year-old Charlotte Hope as she approaches her seventh birthday. She is 'The Light', whose purpose it is to shepherd humankind out from its hedonistic ways. However, the forces of Hell also wish to acquire the child for their master, Lucifer, so that he may drain her light and become unchallenged in his crusade to dominate the kingdom of man.
With the aid of the unlikely pairing of police detective Gary Cross and prostitute Abi Colter, can Judas protect Charlotte so that she may save all humankind and in turn release him from the curse allowing his entry into the White Kingdom, or will Lucifer succeed and bring forth the Apocalypse?
Judas is a dark fantasy, supernatural science fiction page-turner to engross fans of James Herbert, Shaun Hutson and Dean Koontz. A sword and sorcery, action-adventure epic that will leave you yearning for more as you follow our gruff and uncompromising antihero in his quest for redemption and salvation.

A child brought to womanhood within an alternative reality in order to become a devastating weapon.
A demon sword of immense power that must be controlled by an angelic warrior to have any hope of winning an impending war.
Together, they face the biggest challenge to mankind’s existence, within a universe soaked in the blood of battle, where epic tales of the struggle between good and evil play out at a breath-taking pace.
Prepare to open the gates of Hell.
In a decisive move, Judas and Charlotte travel to the one place he vowed he would never enter under any circumstances: the bowels of Hell itself. To end the war that rages above them, they must battle their way through terrifying creatures of titanic proportions to use the holy relics contained within Charlotte against Lucifer to put the Lord of Hell down for good.
Meanwhile, on the surface a weary band of survivors lead by Gary Cross and Colonel Nathan Taylor mount an expedition to gather vital data in the hope that it will provide a scientific solution to a supernatural problem.
And above them all, the forces of Heaven wait with bated breath, eager to receive the command to enter the conflict and prevent humanity from annihilation at the hands of the forces of Hell.
