The Solstice Treaty by David Belltower

Rating 8.7/10
I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to read, period.

Welcome to the Shade.

In the small town of Beaver Hollow, West Virginia, forester Mark Steele has experienced the same reoccurring vision since he was a boy - one that foreshadows a towering tree, menacing premonitions and his own suffocating demise. Tess McCoy is a former captain in the United States Army, harbours a debilitating secret and can't get far enough from her mountain roots to save her life.

When a mystifying accident takes the life of Tess' younger brother, a series of preternatural events are set into motion, propelling the former lovers from the oak-lined streets of the sleepy West Virginia town to an impenetrable hidden fortress within German-occupied France to the ever-changing seasons of an aberrant land − a wondrous otherworld called the Shade. Here, within this tethered realm, they discover an ageless war between two fabled brothers and the terrifying pact made in the closing days of World War II - a pact that will ultimately bring destruction to modern day America.

Review by Dr. Shay Fabro

I was given a copy of David Belltower’s The Solstice Treaty to review. I settled down the other night, fired up the ol’ Kindle, and began this gripping tale. And when I say gripping, I mean that it GRIPS you like the demon on the front cover and won’t let go even after you’ve finished. I won’t lie and tell you that I wasn’t just a bit envious of the obvious amazing talent of this author. I am now his number one fan (don’t worry, I’m not carrying a hammer… yet!) and will read any and everything that this author puts out in the future.

Mark Steele is a forest ranger from a small town in West Virginia. An investigation of a terrible accident with a local mining company unearths more than he bargained for. Along with his childhood sweetheart, Mark embarks on a journey to a mythical world known as The Shade, and finds himself thrust in the middle of a fight between two brothers for control of The Shade.

The thing I loved most about this book was the perfect blending of fantasy, reality, history, adventure, and mythology. And it flowed as smooth as Glenlivet on a cold winters day. Just when I thought I knew where things were going, the author skilfully threw in a twist that had me turning the next page well past my bedtime! And the ending! A cliff-hanger that will have the reader on the edge of their seat waiting for the next installment!

I can’t say enough great things about this book and what a fun, wild ride it was! I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to read, period. You won’t be disappointed!

Paris was supposed to save Hallie. Now... well, let’s just say Paris has other ideas. There’s a strange woman called The Chronometrist who will not leave her alone. Garbled warnings from bizarre creatures keep her up at night. And there’s a time portal in the keg room of the bar where she works. Soon, Hallie is tumbling through...
