''A New Beginning'' is the fourth volume of ''Literature/TheSpectralChronicles''. The Stone Cutters, the Champions of the Light and their allies' victory over the [[FallenAngel Dark Stone Cutters]] 25 years ago has founded the Platinum Age, a time of global peace and prosperity. However, this has not stopped the demons' imperial gaze on planet Earth as was hoped in all these years. [[Literature/ArsGoetia The Spirits of the Goetia]], 72 of hell's strongest demons second in power only to [[{{Satan}} the Dark Emperor]] himself, elect Duke Berith to lead the newest attack on the Earth. His plan is to divide the Champions of the Light by resurrecting the worst enemies Demetrios and Lily had in their mortal lives, leaving the Stone Cutters' city of Kinardas defenseless against the demonic legions. To combat this terrible new foe, the Champions of the Light ally with another team of heroes: the Red Knights of Kingsport. Will their unity be enough to combat a Spirit of the Goetia?

Not to be confused with [[VideoGame/ANewBeginning the video game]] [[RhymesOnADime of the same name]].

!!Tropes:

* AllAnimalsAreDogs: The wolf spirit Zerron is the ancestor of dogs, and thus [[NobleWolf dedicated to protecting humans from evil]]. When interacting with people, he acts more like a BigFriendlyDog.

* DarkIsNotEvil: The Red Knight Cameron may be a dour and aloof necromancer, but he seeks to preserve and restore order from the chaos the demons leave in their wake.

* EvilIsDeathlyCold: Jessica's evil presence causes the swamps of Louisiana to freeze over. [[NoOntologicalInertia Defeating her brings them back to normal]].
* FlippingTheBird: Allen does this after Anne-Marie's team survived Daniel's death trap with [[Myth/ClassicalMythology the hands of Midas]]. Aislin pulls him away [[BullyingADragon before Daniel dislodges the hands and throws them at the heroes]].
* HowlOfSorrow: Will gives one when [[spoiler:Aristotle dies from the terrible wound Melissa kills him with]].

** [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness He does say it right during the final battle, though]].
* MultinationalTeam: The Red Knights.
* NiceCharacterMeanActor: Daniel was one of a sorts. He was telling everyone he was going to become a great charity director, but he was actually using the money he collected to fund criminals instead of helping those in need. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Michael:

* PromotionToParent: Thanks to the familiar Kroisus, Felicia gave Michelangelo a new home and now considers him her own son.
* PsychoExGirlfriend: Melissa to Demetrios. Cecil was one in a way as well to Lily, though more of a StalkerWithACrush.
* PublicDomainCharacter: Not only the Goetia, but Raguel, the archangel who founded the Red Knights. Parts of Daniel's Nightmare Dungeon are guarded by [[Myth/NorseMythology Garm]] and [[Myth/HinduMythology Mahesasura]]. A couple succubi also mention their mother and progenitor Lilith.
