Seven deadly sins have been unleashed, and the only one who can defeat them is the boy who set them free.

Read more in this exciting young adult debut with a Christian theme:


Nicholas Blackwell has no idea he is supposed to fulfill a destiny. All he knows is that he draws trouble like a magnet. Orphaned at seven when two demonic men killed his parents, he copes with the strict rules of his new home, St. Christopher’s academy, unaware that he has been the real target for the killers and that his guardian angel has saved him in the nick of time. And now, his problems are only beginning when a mysterious serpent lures him into the woods and tricks him into a demonic ritual that will unleash the Seven Deadly Sins to destroy the humankind. Nicholas has no choice but to correct his mistake–or die trying.

Aided by Amy, a shy but determined girl who seems to know more about his task than she should, Nicholas’s quest is to travel into the City of Demonio and defeat the Seven Guardians of Sin. To succeed, he must confront demons, monsters, and lost souls, learn the mysteries of the Chapel of Dreams, discover the true meaning of friendship and love, and face the darkest secret of all: the Blackwell Family Secret.

MEET THE AUTHOR: Jonathan L Ferrara


There were two things that have always really interested me, religion and fantasy. I’m fascinated by people’s belief systems, and how they make a relationship with God. I also love a good fantasy that can take me off to a far away land filled with heroes, terrors and fun. As a writer, I love to combine both of these worlds. This how I started writing The Blackwell Family Secret: the Guardians of Sin.
I grew up as a Catholic, going to church every Sunday, being an alter boy, taught to avoid sin. Even as a young boy I was interested in the Seven Deadly Sins. What I find to be even more interesting is that everyone in the world can relate to one of the Sins over the rest. I, myself have felt seduced by a particular sin during specific moments of my life and can easily relate to one of the Princes of Hell in this novel. I wrote this book as a way to give life, history and true meaning to the Seven infamous words: Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, and Pride. Throughout this series you learn the origin of where the Seven Deadly Sins come from, who they are, and most of all…what they plan to do.
