Christian Author Releases First Installment in Fantasy Series

A California-based writer has released the first book in her adventurous Christian fiction series, which puts forth the fantastical story of a tween-age girl who goes to war against demonic forces with the light of God as her greatest weapon. In "Warriors of the Light: Terrified Tourist," author C. E. Johnson tackles important preteen and teen issues, such as bullying, and delivers a tale of friendship, courage and faith in the face of true evil.

At the outset of the book, 13-year-old protagonist Karah Klarke is unwittingly whisked away to heaven to attend Spiritual Warfare Bootcamp - a special program in which non-human characters will train the young girl to resist and defeat the influences of Satan. Also battling inner demons after the tragic death of her family, Karah works alongside a posse of angels, guardians and other tween-agers and ultimately must learn to listen to God and turn her life over to Him.

"'Warriors of the Light' is intended to teach tweens and teens how and why they need to allow themselves to lean on God," Johnson said. "I believe God will use this book as an entertaining and creative way to evangelize those not yet saved while also providing young people with the opportunity to foster a relationship with Jesus Christ and overcome the pitfalls of adolescence through His grace and power."

"… Karah's story brings many of God's truth [sic] into a tangible perspective," Saddleback Church Pastor Jay Kranda wrote in a five-star Amazon review of the book. "Fun read for all ages."

With an eclectic cast of characters that include a jewel-studded lizard, a supernatural bike and two 14-year-old boys, "Warriors of the Light" will transport readers to surreal settings, keep them riveted as Karah goes toe-to-toe with the Devil himself and demonstrate to them the peace that can be found in surrendering despair, fear and discouragement to God.
