Children Of Ankh Series Universe



Kim Cormack is the dark comedy loving author of the Children Of Ankh Universe. She worked for over 16 years as an Early Childhood educator in preschool, daycare, and as an aid. She has M.S and has lived most of her life on Vancouver Island in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Currently, she lives in the gorgeous town of Port Alberni. She's a single mom with two awesome offspring. She has a son in grade 10 and a daughter in University at VIU. 

     If you bump into this author, slowly back away. Toss packages of hot sauce at her until you escape. 


A Note From The Author.


I began writing this series shortly after my M.S diagnosis. I had many reasons to fight. I had incredible children, family and friends, but this series gave me purpose. Whenever things become dark, I use my imagination to find the light within myself. No matter what life throws your way, you are stronger than you believe. I hope the character's strength becomes an inner voice for the readers who need it. Stand back up, and if you can't stand, rise within yourself. We are all beautiful as we are. We are all immortal.


All heroes are born from the embers that linger after the fire of great tragedy.


She slept a dreamless sleep free of dragons for she had slain them once again.

 

Fantasy adventure, magical realism, non-stop action with laughter, tears and a coming of age paranormal romance that will capture every reader's heart. A story of a teenage girl who overcomes tragedy and evolves into something she never knew possible as her immortal destiny comes to light. This paranormal fantasy will leave you breathless as it takes you through the darkness and leads you back out into the secret world of immortality triggered by choices in the afterlife.


         The end of her life is only the beginning of her story.


     This series is what would happen if Hunger games and Divergent hooked up and had a baby!


     A comic romp through the afterlife with three Clans of naughty, certifiably insane antiheroes who battle while collecting partially immortal teenagers as they survive the exterminations of their family lines on their sixteenth year. If they've impressed the Guardians of the in-between with their bravery, they shall be granted a second chance at life as sacrificial lambs for the greater good. They must join one of three Clans of immortals living on earth and can be stolen at random by any other Clan until their eighteenth birthday. 


    She had never coveted the role of princess. She'd always wanted to be the hero. 


Would you live your life differently if you knew the Correction was coming for you? They have allowed you to live until the age of sixteen because they want you to fight back. Your family line will be erased from this world sometime around your sixteenth birthday. You and your twin sister were never meant to be born. There will be no place to run and nowhere to hide. You won't even know they are coming. Could you survive your Correction?

Do you have what it takes to leave your humanity behind?

If your answer is yes, then hold on tight.



Behind The Series ☥


One thousand years ago, procreation became illegal under the immortal law. Any suspected offspring will be allowed to live until the age of sixteen. At this time, a Correction will be sent to erase their family line.

The symbol of your Clan will be branded into your flesh, and with this mark, you will no longer be permitted through the hall of souls each time you die. At eighteen you will be sealed to your Clan. They will train your partially mortal brain to adapt to immortality. Your next feat will be, Immortal Testing where you will be dropped into a floating magical Crypt the size of New York City into a Testing fuelled by your worst nightmares.

Luke Murphy's Red Zone








I'm always happy to share upcoming exciting news for Author friends. 


The prodigal son…

Calvin Watters hasn't been back to USC since the day his scholarship and humility were stripped from the former running back. Calvin had cut all ties to the school, but now finds himself pulled back, when a woman's dead body is found on the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum football field.
…returns home
Detective Charlene Taylor's new homicide case, a freshman cheerleader’s murder at USC, is complicated. Charlene knows that the USC football team is a close-knit family, and getting inside the trusted circle, as a cop, is unlikely.

Calvin Watters is a game-changer…
When Calvin and Charlene meet up on the Coliseum turf, Charlene sees an opportunity to use Calvin to penetrate the Trojan family circle. Little does the detective know, Calvin is now an outsider at USC, no longer welcomed—with many who will go a long way to see the former football star fail.
Can Calvin and Charlene work together to uncover the truth, or will their egos interfere with what could be a powerful partnership?

     The monster hadn't come for her during the night as she'd imagined a monster would when she was small. Those were the childhood rules. You only ever had to be afraid of monsters in the dark. Now that Kayn was grown up, she understood anyone could be a monster on the inside.


     This series is what would happen if Hunger games and Divergent hooked up and had a baby!

COA Series Order

The COA Series Order.

 Endearing antiheroes, wickedly titillating paranormal fantasy warriors and a heartbreaking, magical realism tale of survival against insurmountable odds. She was broken to fulfil an immortal destiny and granted a second chance as a sacrificial lamb for the greater good as a hitman for a Clan of immortals. They needed to create a Dragon, her sanity was collateral damage. It’s a hard knock afterlife. 

     Some people are born into this world, kicking and screaming. They calm down and manage to find a way to fit into society with a mother, a father or perhaps only one of those two. Alexandria Abrelle was the name on her birth certificate. Lexy had never known that girl. She’d come quietly, subserviently into the world. Born to a mother in a coma during her gestation, she’d been taken from her womb as she slipped away into her next life. Lexy had been living in group homes and foster care for as long as she could remember. There had only been a few that felt right, but either she’d outgrown them, or perhaps, they just hadn’t wanted her anymore. She’d never been given a reason. She decided to run away with a few of the older ones. Tired of allowing someone else to control their lives, they planned to hitchhike across the country. It seemed like a brilliant idea at the time. 
     She had been reborn in a place far worse than any version of hell, one could imagine. After many years lost in places void of humanity, Grey found her. He introduced her to a partially immortal family. She’d been saved in so many ways by the Ankh. They were the family that she had always been destined to find. They would teach her to embrace the Dragon residing within.

    A  comic dark fantasy romp through the afterlife with three Clans of naughty certifiably insane antiheroes who battle while collecting human teenagers as they survive the exterminations of their family lines. If they have demonstrated an impressive level of bravery during their brutal demise, they shall be granted a second chance as sacrificial lambs for the greater good. They must join one of three Clans of immortals on earth and can be stolen at random by another Clan until their eighteenth birthday. Plot twist... to prove their partially mortal brains are capable of grasping immortality, they will be dropped into an Immortal Testing, which is a simulation of their personal hells. Like rats in a maze made of nightmares and other ghastly depraved thoughts best left locked behind mortal happy place filters, they must come out mentally intact after being murdered in thousands of increasingly creative ways. 

      No matter how far she ventured from this farm, she would always be the monster created within its walls of timber and shame. They would see what she really was. She was a murderer, a psychopath and a victim. She was all three of those things. 
    
      She’d an unapologetically feral hitwoman for a Clan of immortals, and sometimes just a girl in love with a boy destined to be her Handler. The only thing standing between them is cannibalism and intimacy induced amnesia. What could go wrong?
    
     She slept a dreamless sleep free of Dragons for she had slain them once again.
