By Ivan Amberlake

Book One of The Beholder Series

Publisher: Breakwater Harbor Books (December 4, 2013)
Urban Fantasy

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.

Book Two in the Beholder Series
Coming September, 2014


An urban fantasy writer, an avid beta-reader, proofreader and editor who enjoys reading fantasy, crime and thriller books.

I love active protagonists who get into a lot of trouble on their way to the truth, and never give up whatever happens to them.

I love watching action movies like The Matrix, Harry Potters and have a soft spot for sitcoms like Friends and The Big Bang Theory.

"The Beholder" is my debut paranormal fantasy novel. This is what Joe Kovacs, #1 Amazon Bestselling Author of "Ginger the Gangster Cat", said about it: 'THE BEHOLDER is a tight and fast-paced thriller combining the crawling claustrophobia of Stephen King's "It" and the exciting arcane symbol-hunting of "Celestine Prophecy"'

A HarperCollins editor said in their review of The Beholder: "[Amberlake] shows a real passion for language in his descriptions."

 If anyone told me a few years ago I'd write and then publish a book, I'd give them a quizzical look and scoff in their face. Well, one can never guess what life has in store for them. After reading all sci-fi thrillers and whodunit novels from the local library, I made up my mind to create my own character, the one that I'd love to read about and that hopefully other people would love. I could have never guessed this character (Jason Walker from The Beholder series) would stay with me for so long. I enjoy writing, but real life is often in the way. Writing gives me peace, even if I'm in the middle of a breathtaking action scene.

I'm a member of a writers' group called Breakwater Harbor Books, a.k.a. BHB. They are like a second family to me. Google them!

I love hard rock music, sitcoms, sunsets and the sound of rain pattering against the roof.

I also adore getting reviews, whether raving or scathing. They show that readers do care about the work the author put into their book. Don't hesitate to post one if you've read a book. Reviews let writers know that their hard work isn't in vain.
