A Divine Conspiracy

Paperback & ebook, 297 Pages
February 15, 2021


It’s a new world for the first fifty, ever-created, Angels.

They have been brought to life for one reason. To fight evil. But no one knows what evil is or where it's going to come from. The story takes place in Heaven another newly created estate, under construction as the Angels begin training, under the watchful eye of the Archangel, Michael, to become Guardians on a yet to be created planet called Earth. Heaven is something to behold. The Angels are mystified as they take their first tour through the new city. Incredible architecture (Skyscrapers made of seashells and white sand), birds of every color (Golden Eagles), and a city made of libraries (For those who like to read), are just a few of the sights the Angel's experience.

We follow Adlay, one of the Angels, from his first breath, through extensive physical training, his Humanities class with Jesus, and his Worship class with a beautiful Angel named Lucifer, who immediately gives Adlay a foreboding feeling. The Angels work hard for months to improve and graduate from training. Adlay excels above everybody else in training but quickly discovers Lucifer is planning something. What he finds out, makes him question if he actually knows what is right or wrong. As the Angels near their big day, Adlay must make a difficult choice. Does he care only about graduating and moving on or does he risk everything to discover if Lucifer and evil are synonymous.

Alston asked, “Hey, are you guys hungry?”

“What’s that? Oh, you mean food, right?” Adlay answered.

“Yes. I’m hungry.” Josh said.

Adlay began, “I—“

The clamor in the room was extremely high. Everybody was getting to know each other. Loudly. You would have guessed everybody had met each other five minutes ago.

“Excuse me. Excuse me.” Thalzn barked. “Please gather around.

Right over there.” The smoke formed itself into an arrow, pointing to an area by a large gold doorway, circled with intricate etching on the door. A master craftsman had worked on this.

The beings walked to the spot, all eyes on the spirit. He seemed to have taken a more human form, Adlay reflected. There was a big head on top of a broad set of shoulders. Skinny legs and arms dangled down. You couldn’t tell if he was wearing clothes or not.

“Very well. Let me present to you, your mentor and teacher,” Thalzn pointed a large, smoky finger towards the opening door, “Michael.”

A forceful gasp rose from the Angels as a nine-foot giant with incredibly sculpted, white wings ducked into the room. He towered over the group. A piece of light blue linen wrapped around his mass with sizable brown sandals on his feet. The giant had to be close to nine feet tall sporting a large sword and golden shield across his back.

Gold bands glowed brightly up and down his heavy, muscular legs and arms. He had lengthy, light-brown hair flowing onto his shoulders. His emerald green eyes stared stoically at the group.

Adlay, Alston, and Josh stood with their mouths wide open.

I want to look like that! Adlay thought.

From five feet away, Michael stared down at the group through a pair of steely, blue eyes and smiled. “Welcome to Heaven, Angels.”

The group of Angels looked at each other. A soft murmur echoed through the room as if to say, So, that’s what we are, Angels.

Adlay looked at Josh and Alston. He smiled. They both had huge grins stuck on their faces as well.

About the Author

Tom Bruner appreciates books. Over one thousand read. Really. Growing up in Southern California, Tom has had a passion for reading books since his early teens. It’s all about the story is what he believes. Tired of the same vanilla spoonful every time he opened a Christian Fiction book, he decided to write, A Divine Conspiracy. This book is set in the newly created estate of Heaven. It tells the story of the creation and training of the first Angels ever to be. We follow Adlay, a newly created Angel from his first breath, through physical training and classes with Jesus and Lucifer until the day Heaven falls apart. It packs a punch. There is not a dull moment.

Tom considers taking a motley group of boys from the 7th grade through the graduation of high school with Lifegroup a church program to be his greatest accomplishment so far. That and U.S. Air Force Basic Training. That and fraternity initiation. Oh, and running a marathon without training. The boys and Tom met once a week throughout each school year. Spending six years with the same boys going through that period of their life a great adventure. Tom, an avid Christian, volunteers on Sundays at his church in the junior high ministry. Please pray for him.

Tom is a Southern California guy through and through. He loves the beach and writing books. A Divine Conspiracy is the first book in a trilogy. Tom hopes to have the second book out in six months.
