Bonds of Fate is the second book in the Samuel Buckland Chronicles. Sam is the Keeper of the Keys of Solomon on Earth, and this gives him control over demons and other earthly creatures. Sam spends a lot of time doing God's work and is mentally exhausted. His secretary encourages him to take a vacation, and he decides to take a trip to Jerusalem, along with Sara, his adopted daughter. On the plane, Sam sees angels suddenly begin to burn and fall from the skies, crashing down to Earth. It is now up to Sam, and a few unlikely allies, to help save Heaven from destruction. This novel by Jason P. Crawford combines all the elements for an exciting and unpredictable read!

Bonds of Fate by Jason P. Crawford is an intriguing novel. It contains a combination of religion, myths, mystery, adventure, and so much more! It is an excellent read and hard to put down once you have started. The characters are interesting, well developed and have human failings, which makes them easy to relate to. You find yourself carried along on the tidal wave of action in the fight to discover the mystery of what is happening in heaven. A strange occurrence has caused Earth to be shut off from heaven, and the quest to discover why and return things to normal is a breathtaking journey, woven through richly with mythology, strange creatures, and interesting powers that Sam possesses as Keeper of the Keys. Jason P. Crawford has written a beautifully woven tale of religion, mythology and heroism in a wonderful read. I eagerly await the next installment in this scintillating series!
