Black Angel is a sci-fi teen thriller that tells the story of an average high school kid living with his abusive stepfather who chronically beats his mother. With a dead father, and a mother on the verge of a breakdown, Solomon doesn’t think it could get much worse. One day Solomon gets hit by a car and after dying, a being gives him abilities and a mysterious power. The being gives Solomon his life back and he becomes the Black Angel. Solomon is called to protect those he loves, but becomes entangled in the struggle between power and freedom.
Black Angel was written by Stone Erickson, one of the youngest published authors in the country. He wrote his first full length work at twelve and was offered a publishing deal with Delphine Publications at fourteen. He recently returned from New Orleans where he spoke at the Bayou Soul Writers and Readers Conference about his novel, and appeared on the New Orlean's WWLTV's Morning Show to discuss more about his book and his experience at Bayou Festival.
Stone Erickson will be at Medu Bookstore's Summer Reading Program event on July 20th, where he will talk about his first novel and encourage young people to read throughout the summer.
