The Books of A Throne of Souls
Science Fiction, Fantasy, Romance, and Thriller rolled into one with so much more...
Magic and technology have already met on a world far more advanced than our own only to dispense their most dangerous and hardened criminals, for magic has been outlawed. Their descendants—us, here on Earth, along with the rest of Humanity—are now left to grapple with a Creation undone at the hands of an outlaw mage whose Master Plan affects the seeds of Humanity throughout the known Universe. This outlaw—this Dark Knight of Magic—must accumulate immeasurable power to thwart the fork of consequences that brought forth the making of A Throne of Souls. This story, this execution of his Master Plan originating centuries into the past, begins and ends with a triad of pivotal relationships and evolves through his understanding of his own soul. Within the Master Plan, the dichotomy between hate and hope, across a landscape far beyond epic, is illustrated through vibrant characters developed over two-and-a-half decades.
What if there was just a bit of truth in most (if not all) legends, mythology, physics, chemistry, and religion about where we came from? What if the untold story of Creation was right before our eyes but hiding in plain sight, masquerading as something we thought we knew and understood? Hidden by the nature of its own fragmentation, spread across the universe like tiny individual clues that construct a great mosaic landscape...
This is the untold story of Creation. Are you passionately curious enough to unravel its multiple, complex threads to find answers that will absolutely floor you in a crystallizing moment? An epiphany moment where all the dominoes fall leaving you a never-before-witnessed picture, unadulterated by the filter of our own lens of experiences. Only with the wide-angle lens of an open mind, can we see the great mosaic before us in A Throne of Souls.
This story will stretch the reader with content that covers physics, metaphysics, religion, biology, chemistry, mythology, technology, engineering, and math. This all-encompassing view is brought to you wrapped in vivid descriptions with vibrant characters you'll come to both love and hate. You'll feel the internal struggle with your own emotions as you develop a level of care for characters that have a despicable past, yet who now struggle with the knowledge of the evolution of their own soul. This is not a story of good versus evil or hate versus hope. Good and evil are not simple constructs in A Throne of Souls. They are complex tendencies forged in the fires of our own experiences just as in real life. I'll take you to the edges of the fantastic, but the story will still feel stunningly real to you as you consume the passion built into every page of A Throne of Souls.

The first book in the series A Throne of Souls (ATOS) sets the landscape for the multi-world, multi-planular ecosystem in which Damon's Master Plan executes. The scope, scale, timeline, and veracity of this story cannot be overstated. It is immense! It is far beyond Epic! It is groundbreaking and unconventional in every way.
Normally a novel is written from one perspective (Protagonist or omniscient narrative as an example). This story is written from multiple perspectives of key characters, sometimes in the same scene.
Normally a novel is written with one overriding style and in only one genre. This novel, and this series, is written in a flex-style that changes appropriate to the genre being leveraged in that scene. It is not possible to tell this story, with this scale, scope, and timeline in only one genre. You'll see why as you read.
Bottom line, you have never read anything remotely like this before, because this highly unique and entertaining story has never been told before.
Black Mirrors of the Soul - Book 2 (ATOS)

Black Mirrors of the Soul is the second installment in the series A Throne of Souls, but is unique within its own series because this is the one book in the series that is all about The Cauldron of Hate that forged Damon and the hate he carries with him. Despite it being volume 2, this is the story of how it all began. This is where you’ll read, see, and feel the fuel for the fork—as in the Fork of Consequences. This is the gut-wrenching emotional journey that will have you screaming, crying, and cheering for more.
With over $5,000 USD in artwork in this book alone, you can expect to see my vision coming to life in your hands as you read this bold, inimitable thriller.
There has never been an anti-hero character like Damon until now, and I am going to test your love for this character in chapters like Banished, and A Seminal Moment. Whether you love or hate Damon at the end of BMOS, you'll never forget him! And, you'll never forget Black Mirrors of the Soul! BMOS is now available on all major channels.
And, make sure you have a fresh box of Kleenex by your side before you start reading this book. To quote my Proofreader, "I'm still picking up the pieces of my emotions you just scattered all over the room."

This third installment of A Throne of Souls, The Fall of Hate, vividly illustrates love, lust, anguish, abandonment, enlightenment, adoration, development, deceit, guile, exquisite patience, and prophecy turned on its head. Hard science, mythology, religion, paganism, and the art of magic collide in this daunting clash for Humanity. All the deepest and darkest threads of A Throne of Souls come together in this third book to show you—for the very first time—the breadth and depth of the mosaic landscape that is this story of stories—this engagingly unique tale of Creation. And, as done throughout A Throne of Souls, the dichotomy between Hate and Hope is explored in lifelike ways where good and evil are not simple constructs or boundaries for characters—both beloved and hated—who leap off the page to guide you to places your heart will want to go but your mind will fear to tread. Profound questions will be postulated to you, the reader. Questions that may trouble your belief system and all things you thought you knew with certainty. But, the things we know for certain to be true are often the things most dangerously impeding our ability to see what is truly in front of us. Dare to ask these questions and continue reading this thought-provoking series certain to boldly defy norms and status quo.
The Fall of Hate is now generally available.

The Rise of Hope - Book 4 (ATOS)
I have started writing The Rise of Hope (Book 4 of A Throne of Souls). The Rise of Hope will be beautifully technical, highly detailed, and full of wonder about our place in Creation. It will illustrate concrete examples of our fractoral reflection of the geometric seed of Creation and you'll begin to understand the fulsome meaning behind this great mosaic.
I'm going to introduce you to an unpublished theory of my father (Charles McDonald Sr.), called "Unification." I won't describe it here, but I will in The Rise of Hope and as we transition to The Veil of White you'll see how his 1954 unpublished theory measures up against similar overlapping theories published decades later and how all of them are essentially saying the same incredible thing. They are all describing an incredible tale of Creation and it's not what you think...
This book is dedicated to my father. And, I am deeply grateful for his sharing of this "Unification" theory. He had previously never shared it with anyone before. And, I think when I share it with you, you'll see why. Some things people are just not ready to receive. But, I'm going to show it to you anyway, because you need to see it and you need to understand it as I am still struggling to understand it (and all its implications) myself. Some information is just so radical that the first time you're exposed to it, your first instinct is almost to vomit. But, as you absorb it, pieces that never made sense before begin to make complete sense. As old, traditional outside influences begin to fade away, questions you've secretly held all your life begin to avail themselves with answers that were always just beyond your immediate vision.
A tremendous amount of research has gone into these final two installments of A Throne of Souls, and I know it will shine through. My only hope is that it has a hugely positive influence on your life.

The Veil of White - Book 5 (ATOS)
I have started writing The Veil of White (The Final Book in A Throne of Souls)... I'm not going to say much about this book except that it will shatter all of your preconceived notions and make you want to reread A Kingdom Forgotten all over again to see all the missed clues that were provided at the outset of this journey. This is the book (if the first four didn't do it already) that will test your belief system to its very limits as the research required to write it (and The Rise of Hope) has tested mine.
This book will be dedicated to you. With all my hopes and dreams for you... Charles
