Around the world, people
die under mysterious circumstances. Each has a sign. Each is a piece of
a jigsaw puzzle. A NYC interior designer Jason Walker receives a
message saying he is the final piece.
Emily Ethan, a startling
beauty with supernatural powers, appears and tells Jason that powers
dormant within him are about to wake. He is the only person who can
prevent darkness from enslaving the world. He is the Beholder whose
advent has been awaited for many years.
Setting out on a journey
with Emily, Jason discovers the world he could have never imagined, but
the greatest surprise arrives the moment he realizes he has fallen in
love with Emily.
The Beholder by Ivan Amberlake
My Rating: 5 Stars
Complex, with intensely vivid scenes, The Beholder by Ivan Amberlake takes the reader down a dark and twisted journey into a world beyond our reality. We are invited to follow Jason on a path he reluctantly must follow as the world as he knew it will never be the same. Jason has fallen victim to inexplicable nightmares that end in death for those he dreams about. As he begins to question why he can’t rid himself of these horrific dreams, he discovers that somewhere in the world, real people are dying just as he dreamed it and they are all connected to Jason on an otherworldly level. Is he to be the next victim of Pariah, an evil supernatural being with an agenda of darkness and death?
When one of the characters in his dreams comes into his life in person, he has no choice but to believe and trust in this beautiful, supernatural woman, Emily, who tells him he plays a pivotal role in the future of “both” worlds, along with his two closest friends. He has powers that are awakening and his destiny is about to change. How does a New York designer go from the normal day to day grind to being supernaturally gifted and remain sane? Jason is not a superhero, how can he be the one called The Beholder, the only one powerful enough to stop Pariah and his minions of death? Not only has Emily rocked Jason’s world with her revelations, but Jason finds his heart has awoken, too, but is Emily really who she claims to be or is she hiding an important secret?
Suspend your hold on reality and let Ivan Amberlake take over the controls as he leads the way through this truly complex and uniquely different fantasy tale. Pay close attention as Mr. Amberlake stitches together this fast-paced adventure with unlikely heroes, otherworldly battles and a fight for survival against evil. Like nothing I have ever read before, I find myself wanting to know more about these characters, the chaotic world they have entered into and where Ivan Amberlake will take them next!
