“With a catchy title, an amazing cover, and a unique premise, author Steven J. Byers presents readers with an unexpected thrill ride in “Son of the Doomsday Prophet … What Byers has done is extraordinary … I am impressed beyond measure with the nature of this work … It is a strikingly profound story with depths as deep as the sea and yet as transparent as crystal … I heartily recommend “Son of the Doomsday Prophet” to those who enjoy historical fiction as well as thrillers, epic fantasies, adventures, and even horror stories.

An Excellent Combination of History and Fantasy

“I loved every minute of it … The author did a fabulous job of telling the story and showing readers how this character grows and changes throughout as he fights for his future and his family. The plot of the story is very creative and the book is so well-written. The descriptive writing makes the reader feel that they are right there and a part of the history that is happening. Each of the characters in the story, from the main ones to the secondary ones, is perfectly developed, and we come to know each and everyone of them. They were all very realistic and we were given the chance to see not only their triumphs but the difficulties that they faced throughout their lives leading up to the last moments of the book … Showing it through the eyes of Jayfeth rather than his father was an excellent idea and really made the story so much more interesting … Son of the Doomsday Prophet is an excellent combination of history and fantasy.”
