Under arrest and forced into The Cellar, a brutal prison for the most diabolical criminals, Remy Landolin knows that surrendering was a horrible mistake. Otherworldly spirits and constant mind games drain her sanity as her captors seek her execution. But she is not alone—Arek Rykor, the love of her life, is willing to risk everything to save her and help her fulfill her destiny.
Remy’s story continues in Tessa Van Wade’s second book of the Velieri Uprising series. Velieri and Ephemes become aware of each other and Navin continues to spin his web of lies all the way to the top. If they can’t clear her name, they will never stop him or the rebellion he leads.
Is she the hope of a threatened civilization or an imposter? To figure that out, she must battle not only the Prophets and Powers, but fight a new breed of vicious assassins who can now trace deep into her mind. Will she learn to fight off their unrelenting assaults before it is too late?
You are not who you think you are.A seemingly ordinary existence is shattered when Willow is assaulted and left for dead near her San Francisco home. It is not a random attack, as she soon discovers. The stranger who rescues her tells her she’s part of a hidden race of people whose oppressive government is on the verge of a violent uprising. Against her will, she is drawn into a maze of deception and conspiracy, which defies everything she has ever known. As she attempts to separate fact from fiction, she becomes too entrenched to retreat. Her only hope is to discover the truth before it is too late. In this first installment of The Velieri Uprising, newfound novelist Tessa Van Wade, creates a deeply layered world of unforgettable characters in a fast-paced struggle for survival.

Slinging Freedom All Over the Place
Wayne Jacobsen and Brad Cummings launched The God Journey in March of 2005 to encourage people who were thinking outside the box of religious obligation, those who wanted to follow Jesus even if they had some concerns about the efficacy of religious institutions in our day. They wanted to encourage other people on their journey by honestly sharing their own. As former pastors, authors and counselors, Wayne and Brad offer an engaging mix of wisdom, humor, and compassion for those wanting to find an authentic relationship with God. They talked freely about the failures of religion and the fallacies of secularism in our culture in an open, accessible dialogue that would be helpful, enlightening, and entertaining to believers and nonbelievers alike. They celebrate the adventure of growing in the life of Jesus in an ever-increasing secular society in a way that is intelligently accessible and practically relevant.
They talked about everything—events in their personal lives, their own struggles and questions, and their growing edges. They also comment on current events, religious trends, and Scriptures that have helped them engage God. But they wanted it to be an ever-expanding conversation with those who are thinking outside the box of religious obligation, so they have also added voices from others around the world who are on similar journeys. They also share listener emails and blog comments as they invite others into the conversation. In 2006 and 2007 listeners to the podcast had a front-row seat as Wayne and Brad helped Paul Young re-write and then publish The Shack. The enthusiasm of the audience here helped turn it a world-wide publishing phenomenon as books were shipped out of Brad’s garage.
In the fall of 2012, the podcast took a different direction as Brad became more involved in publishing and movies and Wayne anchored the podcast by bringing in a number of guests and co-hosts. Brad remained a frequent guest, but this allowed the podcast to expand the conversation to other voices. In recent years, his daughter Julie Williams and his good friend Kyle Rice helped with co-hosting duties. Jule brought the perspective of a young wife and mother and Kyle that of a Millenial, publisher, and counselor. You can find out more about our hosts here.
