Northfield High Grad Will Appear

centurion.jpgJon Lee, store manager at my favorite bookstore, has been busy booking events for the fall and, as always, I try — it’s all I can do, people — to keep you posted on which author is coming and when.

The first-next author appearance on the horizon: Sean Patrick Little, a Northfield High School graduate and author of The Centurion: The Balance of the Soul War, who will read from and sign copies of his book at 7 p.m., Friday, Sept. 7, at River City Books. (Yes, for those of you scoring at home, he’ll appear during the Defeat of Jesse James Days).

The event is free and open to the public. The book is on sale for 15 percent off through the event. If you can’t make it to the event but would like a signed copy, e-mail jlee@acs.carleton.edu or call the store.

Here’s a plot summary:

In 1943, Jerald C. McIntire is supposed to die in a grenade explosion in the Ardennes forest in World War II. He miraculously survives, but from that point on Jerry no longer needs to eat or sleep, he has no emotions, and he never ages. After several suicide attempts, Jerry discovers he can’t die. But how is this possible?

Nearly twenty years after his first brush with death, Jerry learns that he somehow broke the realm of the natural order. Even God Himself isn’t sure how it happened, but Jerry is the only man ever born without a soul. The archangel Michael informs him that in the Soul War, good and evil are bound by certain laws and honor checks. Jerry, however, is bound by nothing and can therefore serve as the Master’s Centurion — an agent of God bestowed with the name Jericho.

Jericho roams the streets of New York City, keeping order between the agents of Heaven and Hell, the angelus and the demonata. When a rogue deity, an ancient Hittite dragon god, comes to Earth and begins preying on both angels and demons, Jericho must step in to maintain the balance. But he stumbles into a much larger plot — one that threatens to irreparably damage the Balance of the Soul War and end all things.
