As I suspected, our whistle blower didn’t wait long before sending me more leaked files. This one features Halston, enigmatic hero of The Chronicles of Koa: Netherworld.
I have alerted the lady in charge, author K.N. Lee, that she has a breach of security somewhere. Of course, I also told her that as a writer and blogger, I was duty-bound to publish this material. You know, she didn’t seem all that concerned? Hmm…
Anyway, read the file below and you’ll find out that perhaps Halston isn’t as squeaky clean as he appears. Much as I admire him, I always thought he was too good to be true… 😉
Netherworld Division #265
Hair Color: Blonde
Eye Color: Blue
Territory: United Kingdom & Central Dominance, formerly known as Lyrinia, of the Netherworld
Interviewer: Cpt. Patrik Kramer
Reason for Interview: Request to recruit Netherworld creatures for mission.
Mission: Execute the demon named Bund and the vampire king named Greggan.
Cpt Kramer: Good evening General Halston. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to speak with me. Please speak clearly, so Marlina can document everything that’s said in this hearing.
Halston: Good evening to you as well. Let’s keep it short if at all possible.
Cpt. Kramer: Very well. Let’s get started, shall we? How long have you been here on Earth?
Halston: Since the ancient times. Before the Great Flood.
Cpt. Kramer: And why did you leave Heaven to come to Earth?
Halston: Do we really have to go over this? I came to request a specialized team. Why do I feel as though I’m being interrogated?
Cpt. Kramer: Forgive me, General Halston, but my questions were written out by Viktor himself. I’m afraid he outranks all of us angels on Earth, and I must follow orders.
Halston: I followed the traitor Satan from Heaven and I’ve been stuck here ever since.
Cpt. Kramer: But you never swore allegiance to the great traitor, did you?
Halston: No. I was tricked. It’s no secret that I’ve been trying to redeem myself for centuries. No angel has done greater work on Earth to protect the humans and right the wrongs of my misled brothers and sisters.
Cpt. Kramer: Can you elaborate on those wrongs?
Halston: Honestly, Patrik. As if you do not know.
Cpt. Kramer: Once again, I apologize. Please, for this interview, could we keep it formal. Please, answer the question.
Halston: Many of the fallen angels produced dangerous spawn. The creatures we see today, vampires, syths, ghouls, etc, are the abominations of angels. It is my duty to clean up the mess my…I mean our brothers and sisters have made.
Cpt. Kramer: Thank you, General Halston. And you’ve never created a Netherworld creature, have you?
Cpt. Kramer: General Halston?
Cpt. Kramer: Why the hesitation?
Halston: Move on to the next question, Cpt. Kramer.
Cpt. Kramer: Very well. Let’s just get to the matter at hand. What creatures did you have in mind for this mission?
Halston: Of course I’m bringing my second in command, Al. A Metal-Mind is absolutely necessary. I also need a War-Breeder. I have one in mind. An old friend, Tristan, I would like to bring him to this world.
Cpt. Kramer: You’d actually let a War-Breeder loose?
Halston: Why not? It’s not like they are true Netherworld creatures. They are the only natural predator of vampires, created to fight them in the Great War. Tristan is one that I trust.
Cpt. Kramer: And the prophet, a Prince Jax?
Halston: He is a necessary evil. I need his power and knowledge.
Cpt. Kramer: He is King Greggan’s son and rightfully imprisoned in the Ivory Tower. He is too dangerous for this world. So is the daughter, a Princess Evina. She’s a legitimate Temptress. Can you imagine the damage a vampire with her powers could do if she was around humans? You actually intend on bringing them here?
Halston: Whatever it takes to rid the human world of Greggan and Bund. If we don’t stop them, the human world could be thrown into absolute chaos. The Vampire Registration System would be obsolete, humans would be farmed for blood, and I don’t even want to think about what Bund would do if he was free to roam Earth without consequence. I have a plan to prevent all of this. I have it under control.
Cpt. Kramer: How exactly do you intend to destroy the demon, Bund? As angels, we have no power against our own kind, even if they turned to the dark side.
Halston: I have my ways. I know of someone that can take care of him for us.
Cpt. Kramer: Oh yes, you believe the half-blood’s mother has such a gift?
Halston: I do.
Cpt. Kramer: You show great trust in such Netherworld creatures. You are aware that the half-blood, Koa Ryeo-won, and her mother are under surveillance. You know that we cannot actually let them live.
Cpt. Kramer: Did I say something wrong?
Halston: This interview is over. Send my request to Viktor or I will go to him myself.
Cpt. Kramer: General Halston? General Halston, come back here. We’re not done! Halston!
Cpt. Kramer: I guess that’s it for this interview, Marlina. He’s not coming back. Go ahead and shut it down.

Top Secret File #1 An Interview With Koa Ryeo-won for Netherworld agent position.
Intrigued? Want to know more? Read the book!
The world is a dangerous place. Our world is threatened by the creatures of an alternate land called the Netherworld. Good thing Koa and the Netherworld division are there to keep the vampire population in check. Koa is a feisty half-blood with a mysterious past. Her best friend is her boss, she has a cursed mother, an enchanted sword, and an attractive human pet.
Koa also has a problem. A Netherworld serial killer, with a taste for little girls, threatens everything Koa has worked hard to protect. Not even Koa’s boss, Halston can stop him. But he knows one prisoner that can. Too bad that prison is in the Netherworld.
Is Koa ready to journey to the Netherworld to release the one creature that can break her mother’s curse and protect all that she holds dear?
