Title: The Lore of Prometheus
Author(s): Graham Austin-King
Genre: Urban Military Fantasy/Paranormal
Blurb: John Carver has three rules: Don't drink in the daytime, don't gamble when the luck has gone, and don't talk to the dead people who come to visit.
It has been almost five years since the incident in Kabul. Since the magic stirred within him and the stories began. Fleeing the army, running from the whispers, the guilt, and the fear he was losing his mind, Carver fell into addiction, dragging himself through life one day at a time.
Desperation has pulled him back to Afghanistan, back to the heat, the dust, and the truth he worked so hard to avoid. But there are others, obsessed with power and forbidden magics, who will stop at nothing to learn the truth of his gifts. Abducted and chained, Carver must break more than his own rules if he is to harness this power and survive.
I received an ARC in turn, I promised to submit a true and honest review. From the start, this story pulled me in by the cover. I LOVE this cover. Covers are everything to me, and I am not afraid to admit the truth. The colors used and the images compiled were great. I give the cover an A.
Carver and Mackenzie, who has a special gift that everyone wants. Her story adds more dimension to the novel, and it’s another reason why I couldn’t put the book down.
Now, the story was well written. Carver is a Veteran who suffers from PTSD. The way that Graham displayed Carver's symptoms was realistic (besides the supernatural aspect but who knows)
He has a unique gift that you will have to read this AMAZING story to find out.
The character development was great. Graham put in effort on the world building and it was obvious. The whole story was amazing. I would love to see this as a movie.
This is a MUST READ. It truly is. You like realism, magic and the paranormal then you NEED to read this novel.
