Reluctant Gods, by A.J. Aaron

"A.J. Aaron is a genius. I loved this book! It had fantastic images but the real story was about Sevilen accepting his power. I understood that everything is as it should be but the author's depiction of this concept is exceptional. The laid-back dialogue and cool characters mixed fantasy with what is usually considered a serious, esoteric subject. Leyna's mindset and sexual exploits are tastefully done. Quotes from Einstein, Toffler and Drucker reinforced the message. This book is highly recommended for teenagers and adults." -- Reader's Favorite


Become a supernatural immortal?...Reluctantly.

Book one of this different fantasy series about reincarnated lovers.

Past lives and past mistakes echo themselves for over five hundred years until an ancient agreement with four archangels manifests itself to remind a witch and a wizard of their destiny. This is Leyna and Sevilen’s last chance to reunite and achieve the godlike powers meant for them.
Sevilen, a former engineer, reluctantly takes on his role to try to save his love Leyna from his past life, since in this life, as in her past lives, she will be dead in months if he doesn’t. In today’s life, he doesn’t even like her, and doesn’t care to save her.

Leyna, a powerful, cruel, and callus executive, runs from Sevilen and the thoughts of becoming a goddess, or falling in love with a man.

The two are dumped into a world of magic where they gain abilities to create and destroy universes, throw a bolt of lightning, change into another body, or use their psychic abilities.

What are the other characters like?
Laugh with the sexy great grandmother goddess, who keeps making passes at her great grandson. Marvel at the ancient, loving, manservant Alexander that makes Jeeve’s look like a houseboy. Love the angels, Michael (Mike), Gabriel (Gabby), Raphael (Rapper), and Auriel (Aurie), who look and act like no archangels you ever heard of.

What kind of a read will it be?
You will be engulfed in this tale of romance, denial, and disbelief, among an outrageous cast of characters. The comedic antics of the diverse and colorful characters will make you laugh while they become as familiar to you as your best friends, in this blend of fantasy, humor, mystery, and romance. Science, beliefs, and real life references will make you wonder, could this happen?

How is it written?
Detailed pictures are created in the reader’s mind as they flow through this tale, vividly told. Journey through Prague in the Czech republic and walk the streets of Mala Strana and Stare Mesto. Visit the fully restored mansion in Chardon, Ohio where they all live.

This witch and wizard series, fantasy romance is like no other you will ever read. Is it really fiction that they attained their psychic powers? Or any of their powers?

BEWARE! Not for those with closed minds, or narrow viewpoints of life.

Meet the Author

I was born in Connecticut, educated as a mechanical engineer in Massachusetts, and moved to Ohio for a job in a Fortune 200 company. I've since left the safety of that career, having been in multiple manufacturing roles, including: engineering manager, plant manager, and an acquisition captain, as well as an internal consultant for numerous manufacturing plants on Lean methodology. I have now set about consulting part time and writing the rest of the time.

I was always a maverick as a child, and an adult, and was never quite able to draw inside the lines or follow certain rules. I did however, figure out how to fit into acceptable society and not be a pink monkey. This, and the engineering training I had, taught me to question everything, and never automatically believe in anything. Consequently, I was always a handful for anyone I reported to. Once they knew me though, they pretty much let me run free with the reservation, "If anyone asks if I knew about this, I didn't." - since the things I did usually didn't fit into the nice neat corporate boxes or standards, but were effective at getting the job done.

This personality trait, possibly due to playing with mercury as a child, influences my writing to be somewhat different than others. My hopes are that it will make reading more entertaining for you, with a fresh approach to viewing the world around us, by removing the usual paradigms and blinders we impose on ourselves through our culture's influences.

I've done some pretty dumb things while learning about writing as a career. The first thing is, how darn hard it can be, and I've taken classes, and read several books on writing. The second is how easy it is to make a mistake, such as over-write a good file with a draft copy and promote it to 35,000 people. Yikes. That was a nightmare. I'm much more careful now.

If you are someone that doesn't always feel you fit in all the time, and sees things somewhat differently than most, or looks at things and says, 'What if?' then you might like my work.

If you like a more lighthearted group of somewhat irreverent characters, you might like my Reluctant Gods Series. If you've been in business and know some cold and cruel characters, you might like Dr. Roland Vandergrift in 'Power, Control, Conformance.'

If you are a person who is set in their ways and beliefs and can only see things a certain way, you might not like any of my work.

I hope you enjoy what I've done. If you don't like it, remember you can always return it, though I've had few returns so far.

Remember, I did warn you.
