The Chronicles of the Adonai: The Colony

A Novel by Braxton Hunter


What would happen if a generation were raised with no knowledge of God?

In a dystopian society, led by leaders who call themselves The Adonai, that question is answered.  Avoiding a worldwide destruction known as The Great Darkness, a colony was established by social architects in an ice-covered landscape of wonder and mystery. All references to God have been intentionally removed. Nevertheless, the colony's group of peacekeeping defenders are about to be sent on a journey that will throw their world into chaos, and begin a search for the truth.


Apologist and author, Dr. Braxton Hunter, delivers equal parts adventure, romance, philosophy, and mystery in this intense novel set in an intriguing environment that echoes current worldview issues.

The Colony exists in what was once (before the great darkness) an exquisite ski resort for the wealthiest of vacationers. It is surrounded by a wall that serves to protect the colonials. Beyond the wall is nothing but death. Those who tread beyond this barrier have committed departure from The Colony and are usually presumed dead. The highest point of The Colony consists of The Inquiry & Enlightenment Academy, The Administrative Lodge and The Central facility. In the midst of these is The Creed of the Adonai Monument. Trailing down the hill from the monument are residential apartments. Surrounding the Life Circle are shops and cafes. Life inside the Colony, though remote, is festive and pleasant.
