Product description

About the Author

My name is Jason Patrick Crawford, and I love to write. I discovered writing at the urging of my wife and my sister-in-law and discovered that there is little I like to do more. I have honed my creative skills as a long-time gamemaster of various roleplaying games, and have three children and a teaching job which provide me endless fodder for creation. I hope you enjoy reading my work as much as I have enjoyed writing it!

This book was recently entered in The Wishing Shelf Book Awards. This is what our readers thought:

FEEDBACK

Author: Jason P Crawford
Title: Chains of Prophecy

COVER: 8/10
In general, the readers thought the cover was excellent. They liked the fantasy/gothic feel to it and the imaginative lettering. They also thought the blurb was well written and enticing.

CONTENT 7/10
The readers enjoyed many aspects of this story. They liked the central premise: an average guy battling evil. And they liked the two central characters. The readers felt they were well-rounded and interesting to follow and the rivalry between them often electric. Most of the readers were drawn quickly into the story and many of them enjoyed the strong religious feel to it.
However, a few of the readers felt the religious element of the story was a little too strong and over-bearing. Also, a number of the readers felt the plot: an average guy battling evil in the form of a super rich politician was not original. One reader (man, aged 54) put in his feedback, ‘Why is it the evil fellow is always super rich and successful? It’s sort of annoying. I understand this book has a strong religious undertone and, I guess, the antagonist had to be rich to fulfill the ‘eye of the needle’ mentality of Christian worship, but it still felt forced and unoriginal. I guess everybody in the Vatican with all the priceless artwork hidden in the vaults also won’t be fitting through the tiny eye of that needle.’
Many of the readers commented on the speech in the story. They felt the author handled it well and introduced a strong element of humour, particularly for Sam.

EDITING 7/10
Generally, the readers thought the editing was good.

Format: Paperback
Newman kindly gifted me a copy of this book in return for a honest review. Let me start by saying this is not a book that would usually catch my eye to read as I'm usually a very girly reader. However, Chains of Prophecy was very Angels & Demons-esque, which is always a good thing.

The story is told focusing on two main characters Sam Buckland and Gregory Caitlin. Sam is a young man whose world begins to fall apart when curiosity kills the cat and he cannot stop himself from prying into accountancy files at work belonging to Mr. Caitlin, and soon gets sacked for that very reason. On the other hand, Gregory Caitlin is a business man at the pinnacle of his career and looking to start a political career, but, he has a secret to his success, inside information which has helped him get to where he is and Sam is determined to find out what it is.

Crawford delves into a mystical world of angels, demons and genies with what I took to be a religious twist (however, I have been informed it's actually based on mythology I'm just not clued up on that), when Sam comes to inherit a magical book of transcript and spells.

There were many twists I thoroughly enjoyed throughout the book, one in particular being that Satan and the devil were two separate beings, Lucifer the devil the angel who fell from heaven, and Satan an angel used to tempt individuals to prove their worth. However, I did find myself sometimes getting lost in the action not quite keeping up with the pace feeling like it was a little disjointed.

That being said, there is something in this book for almost everybody (just no romance for us fairytale princess delusionists), lots of fire, death, mystery and fantasy.

This book was recommended to me on Goodreads and Wow, I can't quite put my finger on exactly what it was, but this book was amazing. I loved Samuel, the story was utterly enthralling and it was very well written. I just couldn't put it down; Jason p. Crawford is an author I will definitely keep an eye on!
