Journey of Josephus by G. J. Phoenix
For one man, the future is now.
The Prester family has been waiting for centuries for the prophecy to manifest. Josephus swore to his grandfather the day the old man died that he would be the one to deliver the Marked Child. For thirty years, he watched his Ethiopia be crushed by famine, disease, and religious conflict. The time for action has come. Breaking one vow to deliver on a greater one, he assembles the brothers who have the unwavering faith and knowledge of what will be necessary to seek out the reincarnated Guardians, those who once shepherded this land to supremacy. It is time for them to remember their heritage and to reclaim their future. The Guardians are the way.
It is a race against time to find the children who hold the key to saving the future before the darkness overtakes them all. Will they succeed? Or will the covenant, the first promise, made to an ancient people remain unfulfilled?
As a child, I got to ride the lightening and a dreamer was born. I stood on the top of the world, and traveled to the lowest point that can support life. I got to swim with dolphins and sharks, some of which were on dry land. I didn’t shoot the Sheriff but I definitely knifed the deputy-he looked at me funny.
My life has taken me to many exotic places, and I was honored to meet some truly amazing people. I learned about God and religion through the stories people were kind enough to share with me, and the books I read.
The truth is, in one way or another, most of my books are based on real people, facing hellish problems, involving intriguing legends or myths, and finding solutions through the power of hope. I have read many great writers in my life, and, it is my hope, they look upon my work with favor-or at least no shame.
I’m G.J. Nice to meet you. Please spend some time and get to know me as well as my family-the characters in my books. You can always find me at gjphoenix.com or on social media.
