Multi-volume, historical-fantasy-thriller author, Rob Samborn introduces us to the third volume in the Painted Souls series:
A relentless pursuit.
The brink of world domination.
With her husband imprisoned in eternal purgatory, Julia O’Connor and her friends must use every tool in their arsenal to stop Salvatore della Porta from completing his plan of global supremacy through Veritism—the one veritable religion—and save millions of souls from a similar fate.
Della Porta’s men doggedly track the team across Europe to Asia and back to Venice, as they seek an age-old journal that will either catapult della Porta to triumph or crush him for good. To free the souls and end the madness, they must also unearth an ancient relic that can destroy the Sun Crystal—the key to our past, present, and future.
In a final, desperate gambit, Julia and her band of renegades have one last chance to save her husband, liberate the imprisoned souls, and stop della Porta from gaining boundless power. Their every move is a race against destiny in this gripping, globe-spanning historical thriller.”
I was on the edge of my Kindle for nearly the entire story!
The author's writing is superb! He paints such a wonderful picture in my mind with location details in the right amount. That is an important balance to find difficult to maintain because too little detail and the reader is left in the dark, too much detail can muddy the story or plot.
I am babbling because I don't give spoilers but this time it's so hard because I want to exult about the ending! I loved it.
You will just have to read it for yourself. Do yourself a favor and start with the first book, you can thank me later.
I give this story 4.8 stars.

Multi-volume, science fiction, horror author Craig Crawford introduces us to his fourth volume in the Project Threshold series, “Project Threshold: Finale”:
Greed releases something without compassion or care. Its sole purpose is to cleanse the Earth of humans. Starting in Canada, it destroys everyone it crosses paths with, making its way to bigger settlements. Weapons won’t kill it and the only group who might be able to save humanity is Project Threshold.
An amazing story! I hope it is not real. The characters seem quite realistic to me. Facing an unknown foe, people are dying left and right. The creature seems to not be hampered by the laws of physics. Will the PT organization survive this threat?
I love this series and this book. The author has a very deft hand and pours out the words onto the page with the utmost care. There is not an extra or unnecessary word in the story. Fabulous writing!
If you like short stories, you will love this series. Each adventure can stand alone.
If you like long stories and intricate plots, you will derive plenty of enjoyment because all of these stories are connected in multiple ways.
I am excited for the new batch of stories!
