Book Feature – “The Beginning: The Four Book 1” by Margaret Millmore



They do exist and they always have. They live, love, and work amongst us and they are part of us. But they are different too, they are stronger and they live longer. They are the topic of many books, movies and myths, but their existence remains a secret, not everyone would accept them. And like us, they have those that are simply evil. Keeping these evil ones under control is the price they must pay to continue the lives they love. They must protect their human brethren from the Dark Ones, those that would rather kill than preserve.

Century after century the good battled the Dark Ones, always prevailing and preserving the lives of their beloved humans. In the 17th century, two powerful Dark leaders emerged, they organized their forces and a bitter war ensued. It was a fight to the death and the good thought they’d won. Four warriors led the battle, four warriors whose strength was beyond anything they knew, four warriors whose legacy had to be protected…

The good formed a consortium and with the help of a powerful sorcerer, a spell was cast; a spell that would follow the warriors’ lineage in case their power was needed again. The warriors are long dead, but their heirs are not, and now they must fight. The Dark Ones have re-emerged, they are more powerful, more resourceful and they want to control mankind and the world.

The Beginning

Book I

Clare had an ideal life. She lived in the perfect little town, had a great family and four of the best friends in the world.  She also had nightmares, nightmares that plagued her for almost a decade. But these are not ordinary nightmares; they are premonitions, warnings of what is to come and what she will become.

She discovers that she isn’t alone in these vile dreams; her friends are having them too. They are dreaming of their ancestors and their own future…  The discovery of their destiny and the future they must embrace is shocking and terrifying.

What People Are Saying:

When I say I am a voracious reader, I mean just that. I get started on an intriguing book, I stay until its done. I started this today at 9am and finished it at 5pm. I found this story fast paced, which is great with me. The concept is fascinating, and the authors weaving of the legend into the story concept is excellent. I found myself getting attached to Clare and what was going to happen her. The story seemed to end too soon, and diffidently leaves you wanting more. If there is going to be a next book, I am certainly going to be looking out for it. I give it 4 stars because it seemed to short, but worth the read.  – Steven Swem

I really enjoyed this book, I just cant wait for the next volume. The author did a great job of developing the characters in volume 1, you can tell that the series is going to be awesome. I was drawn in by the artwork on the cover and then when I found that there were vampires and werewolves involved, I had to read it. The book was well written, I feel very invested in the characters so I really cant wait for the next one. It was a real easy read, blew through it in two days, and I am not even that big of a reader.  – Vladimir Arbuckle

Excerpt:

Charlie: “You see, we can live for a very long time, but we can also be destroyed. The Elders wanted to be sure that the power of these warriors could be called upon even if they were gone. The warriors were then instructed to find human mates and procreate so that a human heir would be created and in turn continue to procreate, insuring their lineage throughout time. The heirs would not know of their fate until the need arose. If the Dark Ones emerged again, the power of these warriors would be reborn in the current heirs. These heirs would become the powerful warriors that their ancestors had been, thus being able to insure victory against the Dark Ones.”

Charlie had stopped speaking, but we didn’t immediately notice. It was like we were in a trance.

Kate came to first and said, “Are you saying they’re going to change into these monsters?” She looked horrified.

He shook his head, “No Kate, they are not monsters and will not be monsters.”
