From the back of the book...

Lucifer walks the Earth, set free by the emotionally devastated half-angel, Miranda Gale, who wanders the world alone in a self-imposed exile from the ruins of her former life.

When Lucifer sets into motion a plan that jeopardizes the souls of all of mankind, a figure from his past returns – Miranda’s father, the former archangel Gabriel. Believing Miranda to be his only hope to uncover and stop Lucifer’s plans, Gabriel sets out to find his daughter, leading him to a confrontation with Miranda’s closest friends, Jake Neilson and Lydia Snow. When Miranda suddenly reappears, an uneasy alliance forms as they all confront their turbulent pasts in the face of an uncertain future.

Yet an unseen darkness stirs within the shadows, testing the bonds of friendship and family as the destiny of mankind hangs in the balance…and nothing may be as it seems!

When a young woman sets herself on a journey to discover a past she’s never known, she finds herself facing a destiny that touches the threshold of Heaven, Hell, and all that lies in between.

Miranda Stratton is a fiercely independent college student plagued by the sudden recurrence of a nightmare that haunted her childhood nights, returning more intense than ever before. As her studies begin to suffer, Miranda makes the difficult decision to take time off from school and return to her home in the small northern Michigan town of Native Springs. The day after she arrives at her family’s new house, a package is delivered addressed to Miranda with no return address.

Miranda’s plans to get her life back on track again are turned upside down when the contents of the package set her on a journey into the depths of a past she’s never known, taking her from the rugged and remote wilderness of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to the urban landscapes of the cities of southern Michigan. Coming into possession of an ancient document revealing a very different take on the Adversary of God, Miranda is pursued by the mysterious and violent Mr. Cain and Mr. Skye. With almost no one she can trust except Jake, her high school ex-boyfriend with whom she shares a complicated relationship, and Lydia, her best friend and roommate, Miranda finds herself on the verge of discovering the dark truth about the nightmare that has followed her throughout her entire life – and a startling personal revelation that will forever change her destiny.

Rick Jurewicz

Rick Jurewicz was born in Southfield, Michigan, but grew up and has lived in the northern tip region of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula almost all of his life. While being raised in an environment rich in dense wilderness, filled with lakes and streams in a region of vastly changing seasons, Rick loved to live in his mind in worlds of far away places and dreamed of heroes and villains clashing in desperate battles to save kingdoms, worlds, and often their very souls.

Rick has been writing short stories and poetry for more than 20 years, featuring some works in newspaper publications local to the northern Michigan area, and has shared many of his works via his social media outlets. In the Shadows of Fate is Rick’s first full-length novel.

A lover of dark drama, horror and sci-fi, in both print and film media, Rick has found his greatest inspirations for writing in the modern works of Neil Gaiman, Anne Rice, Thomas Harris & Stephen King, to the gothic writings of the dark and beautiful Edgar Allan Poe and the adventurous tales of the legendary Robert Louis Stevenson.

Rick and his family reside in Indian River, Michigan.

Dreadful Wonders

Blog of author Rick Jurewicz

I'm going to try something a little bit different. I have created a blog page that I will write in on occasion to share thoughts and ideas, stories, poetry, and just my perspectives on random happenings and STUFF. I will try to keep it as light-hearted as possible, although it is at times hard to steer completely away from the more serious side of life. I am calling it "Dreadful Wonders - Blog of author Rick Jurewicz". Click HERE to check it out! I don't know how often I will contribute to the blog, but I will try and make an effort to try and add SOMETHING on a semi-regular basis. No guarantees ;) It's a crazy world we are living in right now, so we will see how it goes!
