A Necessary Evil…
Mallory Towneson Haulm, financial wizard and consummate ladies man, brings the four horsemen to completion as he reluctantly embraces his destined charge as Death. While struggling to maintain his lavish façade, Mallory witnesses bits of his glamorous world slipping through his hands. How can he balance his earthly paradise with his diabolical calling of the earth’s fate?
There Can Only Be One…
Death Cometh divulges life shattering secrets that move Heaven and Earth as Mallory’s true destined charge transforms him, requiring him to take his rightful place. However, his father, Malcolm is not quite ready to relinquish control.
The battle lines have been drawn and the most consecrated ritual will allow only one to be Death. Who will survive?
This may have been the second in the series, but this is the first book that I have read by this lovely author. And I was thoroughly impressed. T.L. James has crafted a strong story that can stand alone from the rest of the series and not leave a new reader feeling confused.
This is one of those books that really sucks you into the storyline from the very beginning. This book will push the boundaries of your mind. There were a few twists and turns that I really never saw coming.
We have all heard stories about sons taking over the family businesses when the fathers retires. And about fathers who just aren’t ready to retire yet because they feel they have a few good years left in them. What would you do if the family business was being one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse? And your father wasn’t ready to step down but it was his time?
I felt bad for Mallory as he was trying to come to terms that he truly is Death and that he now had to wrestle control from his father.
I definitely want to go back and read the first book in the series before the third comes out. I can’t wait!
TL James graduated with an MBA from LeTourneau University. At LETU, James cultivated an interest in biblical studies and research. Little did James know, but her love for research would become an integral thread in her writing style.
After many sleepless nights, James began writing her first speculative fictional book, with her newly born son tucked comfortably at her side. She developed the family drama storyline that showcases her love of research, biblical studies and literary classics (i.e., Chaucer, Shakespeare and Mythology). The MPire Trilogy was born.
In 2008, TL James revived PHE Ink, a Writing Solutions Firm, after discovering a number of gaps in the publishing industry. James works with aspiring writers, one-on-one, to develop their literary voice. PHE Ink, also, assists entrepreneurs with transforming their business dreams into defined objectives and business plans.
TL James currently resides in Houston, Texas with her son and immediate family.
