THE BLUE PENDANT
Angus MacDonald is a 26-year-old Marine injured in Afghanistan and medically discharged. On a recuperative trip to Scotland, he visits Culloden Battlefield, where his ancestors died fighting against the British. There, he has a vision in which the ancient gods warn him that Hades, the malevolent God of the Underworld, plans to make humanity his slaves. They choose Angus as their champion and grant him supernatural abilities. His world changes forever. A dazed, and dismayed Angus returns to America where he must hone his skills and new God-given strengths to battle the vengeful Hades. Out of his depth, unsure of whom to turn to and struggling to control his new mystical powers, he finds himself confronted by Hades, who, punished by Zeus for his growing ambitions, turns the attacks personal. The stakes are raised even further when he discovers Angus is no normal human, but a bringer of light and bound to upset the universe’s balance.
