1000 + Books To Read


“[C]alls to mind such series as Jason Bourne and Indiana Jones, with supernatural/religious overtones thrown in.”

Bookhound’s Den


“An awesome read . . . The writing is polished and evocative, the subject matter fascinating, the characters intriguing, and the pace non-stop.  Spooky and occasionally metaphysical, The Summoner harkens back to The Serpent and the Rainbow in its ability to convincingly portray seemingly paranormal events in a realistic (and therefore even creepier) manner.”
