Take Me Now
The First installment in the Dark District series.
Imagine a place where you can hide and no one will ever find you.
Imagine a place where rules can be broken to serve your needs.
Imagine your needs and darkest desires met and fantasies fulfilled.
Fuse these conditions with a little magic and you have entered the Dark District.
Alvin has been looking for love in all the wrong places and when he is finally brought to the District, he finds himself getting more than what he bargained for. But such things of and from the District are never what they seem. From nocturnal visits to sensual surprises during the day, Alvin may have just found the right condition in his search for love and sex, to take him...now.
Sometimes being a fish out of water can be a good thing. Only two things can happen. Either one adapts to the environment or simply peters out from intractability. Enter David Lansing, a half-Filipino call center trainer whose normal life took an unexpected turn when he suddenly woke up and is presented with visions and a spirit guide to boot! Why was he seeing things? Who is the Guide and what did he want from him?
Peppered with appearances like the Tikbalang, Aswang and even the White Lady of Balete Drive, all part of Philippine folklore and urban legend, the story traces David's existential journey of becoming; from his skepticism, to a new sense of self and of the world that he lives in. All operating with the promise that the prize he seeks is waiting just around the corner; a visit to a place where people like him are common and living the most normal of lives; a place that is known only to a few and yet is the most sought after; the magical community of the Dark District.
Felix is destined to become a mage in the Order of the Light, one of the magical organizations tasked to safeguard and monitor magical events and incursions in the Dark District.
But before his journey can begin, he needs to hear another person's story about the world of Magick and a piece of Philippine history that has helped shape the Dark District.
Here he reads about the life story of one of the most powerful mages of the Order of the Light. His predecessor. His Master.
