#NewBook: The Last Drive by John Howell @HowellWave #ParanormalFiction #MysteryThriller
Hi everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. It gives me immense pleasure to welcome friend, author, blogger, and fellow Story Empire contributor to my place today so he can tell us all about his latest book! Grab your favourite beverage and snack and sink into a comfy seat while John shares his good news 😁 …
I am so pleased to be with you today, Harmony. I want to thank you for helping to spread the word about The Last Drive. As a writer, editor, and poet I can imagine you have had some works more or less sneak up on you. This book could be labelled the surprise. I had no intention of writing a sequel to Eternal Road. In fact, I pretty much put the thought out of my head until the characters started calling me collect with story ideas. So, what is an author to do but give in to the demands of those who were created in the author’s imagination in the first place. Yes, I gave in and the end result is what we are discussing today. [Oh, yes! I can sympathise all too well with those pesky characters who refuse to leave you in peace. I have to confess, I’m delighted they pestered you!]
Here is the blurb and then we can get to a short excerpt from the book.
In the sequel to Eternal Road – The final stop, Sam and James are reunited to look for two souls, Ryan and Eddie. Ryan was killed in Afghanistan, trying to avoid a schoolyard with his crippled plane. Eddie Rickenbacker, Ryan’s hero, is to guide Ryan to his Eternal Home, and now both are missing.
The higher-ups believe that there has been some interference in Ryan and Eddie’s journey by Lucifer, so Sam and James have the task of finding Ryan and Eddie to get them back on the road despite the evil interference. Unfortunately, the machinations designed to prevent Ryan and Eddy from completing their journey take the pair to horrifying testing grounds. The places visited represent the best work of the Devil. They are the trenches of World War I in France, gladiators at the Roman Coliseum, the sinking Titanic in 1912, Hiroshima 45 minutes before the bomb, and the Auschwitz concentration camp in 1943.
This book is for you if you like plenty of action, strong characters, time travel, and a touch of spiritual and historical fiction. So, join Sam and James as they try to find the missing souls while staying one step ahead of the Prince of Darkness, who is determined to destroy all that is good.
The Archangel waves his hand. “Whatever. The important point is Ryan and the guide disappeared from that game, and we have not heard from either since.”
“That game happened in sixty-seven. It could be the two are still in that year.”
The Archangel folds his hands and lays them on his lap. “I need you to go there, Sam, and try to locate the guide and Captain Sanders.”
“Who’s the guide? Do I know him?”
“I’m not sure you do. His name is Rickenbacker.”
Sam stands. “Eddie Rickenbacker? The famous airman?”
“Yes, I believe so.” The Archangel shuffles through the papers again. “Yes, it is Eddie Rickenbacker. Sanders had a hero-worship thing about Rickenbacker, so we selected him to escort Ryan down the Eternal Road. I hope Eddie is not the problem.”
Sam settles back into her chair. “No, I’m sure he’s not the issue. Eddie would make a good guide. Lucifer is behind this.”
Sam sits forward. “May I speak my mind, Sir?”
“Of course, my child.”
“I’m surprised God and yourself don’t keep track of this kind of thing.”
