Extreme Prejudice: Imogene’s Message
When extreme religious fundamentalists known as the Phineas Priesthood led by Ezekiel Yates and his three cousins, target Xantara Pembroke because they believe she is a witch, they launch a major conflict between unworldly disciples of good and evil. This 60,000-word, action-packed thriller shows the twists and turns of both sides as they try to destroy or save the souls of earth.
Xantara is a Guardian of Avebury Circle, an ancient monument near Stonehenge. For over three thousand years, wives of eight village families have performed ceremonies to heal local people, with power handed down from first daughter to first daughter.
Xantara’s first daughter Imogene is “accidentally” killed on the Isle of Angels, and her father Braeden is distraught. Ezekiel persuades him to join him, to ensure his daughter’s home in heaven. The doctor quickly realizes he’s made a mistake, but it’s too late.
Imogene is brought back to life by the Light Beings at Avebury Circle. Ezekiel’s family commit several atrocities in the name of God, and vow to destroy Imogene to stop her delivering a message from the Council of Elders.
The fast-paced battle which follows pits the Phineas Priesthood against the Pembroke family, and the evil entities against the Light Beings. An explosion demolishing a church apparently wipes out the Priesthood. But did it, really?
Will the world believe Imogene’s incredible message?

On a more scholarly note, I did a lot of research into animistic religions in graduate school, and for this book, Sherborne hits it on the head. She does an amazing job staying true to the beliefs and values of New Age religions. I only wish that she made more of an effort to offset the violence of the extremists with the goodness of the true believers in both the Christian and Muslim religions.
