Scott A. Lerner - The Fraternity of the Soul Eater - Review & Giveaway



About the Book

It’s been a while since Samuel Roberts was called upon to save mankind, and he’s getting restless. His girlfriend Susan thinks he’s a danger junkie, and he’s worried he has a hero complex. He’s back to his usual small-town lawyerly duties in Champaign-Urbana, handling divorces and helping people beat DUI raps. But then a young fraternity pledge calls. During an initiation ceremony he witnessed the live sacrifice of a young woman, but he had so much alcohol in his system that no one believes him. Except Sam. Lately Egyptian lore has been creeping into his life, his dreams, and his movie preferences, and he’s pretty sure he knows why. Evil is knocking on his door again.

Is the call welcome? Why can’t Sam be satisfied with his comfortable legal practice and gorgeous redheaded girlfriend? Maybe it’s because he knows that, as inadequate as he may feel to the task, he and his friend Bob may be humanity’s only hope against ancient supernatural forces combined with modern genetic engineering. Come hell or high water. Or in this case, the underworld or subterranean pyramids.

The Fraternity of the Soul Eater is the third book in the Samuel Roberts Thriller series, which began with Cocaine Zombies and continued with Ruler of Demons.


My Review

Women are being murdered in an underground pyramid near a college campus.

And Sam is a small time lawyer, hired to look into these bizarre ritualistic killings when a young fraternity pledge turns his fellow brothers in to the police, only to become the focus of the investigation himself. Sam loves danger and situations that take him there and he's totally intrigued by the concept of an evil Egyptian presence in his hometown, so he decides to help the kid.

But Sam's personal demons are quick to resurface. His depression, his reckless behavior, his foundering relationships—his life is turned upside down when he takes the case. And it makes you wonder, do the ends really justify the means?

A suspenseful thriller that grabs you right from the start, it takes you into an ancient world of long held secrets and grotesque murders. A true page turner.
