Bonds of Fate
by Jason P. Crawford

Two years after saving the Archangel Gabriel, Sam Buckland is feeling the pressure of a world plagued by evil. When the Angels Fall and Heaven is attacked by an ancient Egyptian sorcerer, however, he must put aside his weariness and muster all his powers and those of unlikely allies to turn aside this new threat.

As the angels fall and the world is attacked by evil, Samuel Buckland has to take action and find out what is going on in Heaven. Bonds of Fate is Book 2 in Samuel Buckland Chronicles, a unique series that is wonderfully different from the majority of other series.

The story takes place two years after the first book ends, and Sam is to set on another dangerous journey. Sorcerers, angels and demons, ancient gods – Bonds of Fate is a thrilling adventure, a book with no dull page in it. It’s an easy and hard-to-put-down read.

What I really loved in Bonds of Fate is that even in this supernatural story there are real emotions and feelings. I really enjoyed reading about Sam and his adopted daughter. Their relationship is never easy but a bond between them gets stronger when both their lives are put in danger.

BoF is a unique story created by a highly talented author. Looking forward to the next book in the series.


Chains of Prophecy (Samuel Buckland Chronicles Book 1)

Samuel Buckland is a young man who has it all and is planning for the future. Gregory Caitlin is a businessman and politician. He has designs to bring hope back to a world in need...and he'll be damned if anyone gets in his way!

When the two cross paths, even the angels tremble.

An ancient magic has been rediscovered. Sam must overcome his lack of faith and accept his destiny, or the world he knows will suffer the consequences.

A skeptic who must harness the powers of demons and genies. A zealot who has begun to walk a darker path. Bound together by a stolen secret.

Can any of them escape the Chains of Prophecy?

The first novel in the Samuel Buckland Chronicles, Chains of Prophecy is a fast-moving, compelling story that explores the grey line between good and evil, right and wrong. Fantastic creatures combine with all-too-human failings to produce a story that is both spellbinding and relatable. Fans of Supernatural or Constantine will especially enjoy this book!


Jason Patrick Crawford is a 33-year-old high school science teacher and father of three children who came into writing at the urging of his family. He discovered a primal joy in the act of creation that he had never experienced before. He has also learned of the amazing community of authors he has joined and is proud to be counted among their ranks.

Jason's first published work, Chains of Prophecy, is available in most e-book formats. He had the idea for this novel several years ago when he was getting his teaching credential, but had no idea at the time how to make it work. His inspiration for his writing practices is the great Stephen King; his memoir On Writing was an amazing resource and really helped jump-start Jason's work.

"A wolf knows nothing of revenge, but a man does."
When the smoldering remains of werewolves are discovered the alpha of the Lykaonas Pack has one suspect, Dr. Sophia Katsaros, the only human to learn their secret and live. The Efarmostis, a trio of cinder colored werewolves. A law unto themselves, they have done the dirty work of the pack for thousands of years. Once dispatched, they won't stop until they catch their prey. As the body count rises, Sophia fights for her life and the lives of those she loves. Out of desperation Sophia strikes a dangerous bargain. Will she discover the truth of the dryad? What is the ancient evil that has risen? Will she find the killer before the Efarmostis find her?

Erato is book 2 in The Sophia Katsaros Series, and I loved this book as much as book 1. After Dr. Sophia Katsaros finds out that both her brothers are dead, she returns home, only to get into more trouble. She has an unexpected visitor at her own apartment; a series of murders that follow are chilling, especially as they occur too close to where Sophia lives and works. Sophia decides to go to the pack Alpha where she learns that someone is killing the pack’s wolves, so she offers to help and find the murderer, provided she is protected by the pack. The investigation that she starts will be filled with lots of surprises and danger.
The storytelling is the main strength of this book and of Sharon Van Orman’s writing. Descriptive, full of action, tension, intrigue. The mythological aspect is developed on a larger scale, dwelled on more closely than in Lykaia, which makes this series distinct from any other series. A refreshing read where contemporary parts are followed by stories of mythology and gods; I’d recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading a well-written and structured book.

Lykaia (The Sophia Katsaros Series # 1) 
 by Sharon Van Orman

"We are the terrors that hunt the night. And we have never been human."
In Greek mythology there’s a story of King Lykaonas of Arcadia and his fifty sons who were cursed by the father of the gods, Zeus, to become wolves. The very first Lycanthropes. Forensic pathologist, Sophia Katsaros, receives a cryptic phone call from Greece, telling her that her brothers are missing and leaves to search for them. With the help of Illyanna, her brother’s girlfriend, Sophia examines the evidence but cannot accept a bizarre possibility: Has one or both of her brothers been transformed during the Lykaia, the ceremony where Man is said to become Wolf? Who is Marcus, a dark stranger that both repels and excites her? And what is the real story behind the 5000 year old curse of King Lykaonas?
