Here’s my job,
Get the idea,
I make fear happen,
Darkness and demons,
I scare people—
Because it makes them,
And they will deny it,
Happy to be afraid.
Haunted houses and scary movies—
They like the jump,
The adrenaline rush of being scared.
I give the people what they want,
Because what they really want is to be disturbed,
And I am very good at it,
I can make people shiver,
I can make them wilt backward.
The dark may bother you,
It may make you uncomfortable,
But it’s my craft,
I paint with my words,
Is it my fault that I only use black and red?

“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.”
