Volume One - The Pelagius Game: Valstain, rapidly became a bestseller.
Now the narrative, “a magical realm between Heaven and Earth” continues in Book 2 -
Excerpt from Press Release:
Levittown, PA – While most authors use their debut release to do nothing but test the literary waters, R.J. Jerome quickly made it clear that a first novel also presents an opportunity to rival a genre’s bestsellers. After hearing two Catholic Priests whispering during a class, Jerome couldn’t escape a burning question – what if there was a secret realm to the Biblical order that only few would ever get to experience? His ‘The Pelagius Game’ series was born.
Volume one was a roaring success, climbing the bestsellers lists and spawning a growing band of dedicated fans. Volume two, ‘Born Villain’, is finally here.
There’s no real way to compartmentalize this book or series,” explains the author. “It boasts all the hallmarks of intricate fantasy, while also attempting to explore many of the mysteries that exist in the Biblical world. As mentioned, I was inspired after witnessing two priests whispering very intently at a class on Catholicism, and my mind started racing with the possibilities that could make up their conversation. Perhaps it was about something they didn't want the rest of humanity to hear?!
Continuing, “Initial feedback to this second installment has been overwhelmingly positive, and I’m fiercely writing volume three. There’s still plenty to explore.”
Jerome isn’t exaggerating; his readers have praised the book with five-star success. Veronica comments, “What an epic fantasy tale filled with mystery and intrigue! I absolutely loved it! I am a huge fan of this genre of fantasy writing and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by how good this story was. It is of the same quality as any of the big fantasy realm stories such as "Lord of The Rings" or "The Hunger Games". The characters have been brilliantly developed... each with its own unique identity and aura. The story line flows nicely with plenty of twists and turns and cliff hanger moments that keep you fully engaged. All in all this was a great book that kept my imagination locked in. 5 big stars!”
Another reader adds, “I loved the first book but this book is even better. I can't wait for the next.”
