Hawaiian Kahuna Sorcery
Posted by Literary Titan
Sorcerers’ Prayer: Book 2 follows the Judge as he slowly fills his new role and guides his flock to the apocalypse. What were some new ideas you wanted to introduce in this book that were different from book one?
The two parts of Book 2 were written concurrently with their predecessor – Book 1 Sacred Idol – in an endeavor to emulate the tryptic formula successfully embraced by Dan Brown and James Rollins. However, I didn’t pull it off.
In the second book, I wanted to give the backstory of how the Judge attained the ranks of immortality and Hawaiian kahuna sorcery. In addition, I needed to justify the bloodthirsty revenge enacted by the Judge in Book 1, as ritual mayhem was committed upon his Hawaiian brethren.
Judge Kaona goes through a large transformation in this book. What were some sources that informed his character development in this book?
The loss of his wife and unborn child predetermined Judge Kaona’s alternative career aspirations of pastor and everlasting sorcerer. In his quest to alleviate the intense depression and eventual bipolarism, he sought solace in the realm of narcotics. The Judge’s addiction to opium—which he called “God’s medicine”—instigated his kindred relationships with Priestess Kalehua and the party hearty King of Hawaii.
What do you feel draws you to the dark fantasy/horror genre? Or do you feel it is incidental to the story you want to tell?
The primary motive for writing this thriller series was to chronicle the recorded history of a Honolulu judge who had morphed into a pastor and mass-murderer. So, there weren’t too many options available for a suitable selection of genre.
What can readers expect in book three?
I currently possess extensive notes for Books 3 and 4 of the Sorcerers’ Prayer series. The third book is called Strego Scarpelli – which transports the Professor back to the middle age Venice inquisitions. In Book 4 – named Eutropos – the Professor and Judge tag-team to create a tropical utopia, which later engages its anti-thesis or antithesis. Priestess Kalehua is the name of the last novel of the planned Sorcerers’ Prayer series; those nocturnal ruminations are currently on the proverbial back burner.
