How far must an angel fall to find his destiny?

Having witnessed one too many senseless deaths, Nikolai, a disillusioned Reaper 3rdClass, resigns his commission with the Angel Forces after a tedious century of gathering souls.

Immediately, another division recruits him with the promise of a more rewarding career, and issues his initial assignments: To bring down a few very dangerous threats to the human race.  In the process, Nikolai falls in love with one of his targets—Hope Matheson, a woman who will lead thousands astray. 
Caught between conflicting agendas, Nikolai chooses to “fall” from his celestial state and become mortal in order to circumvent angel law and be with her.  But for angels and humans alike, things are not always as they appear.  Still a target, the threat against Hope’s life intensifies.

Now, in order to save her, Nikolai must rally the last remnants of his failing supernatural abilities to prevent her assassination, as well as the destruction of an entire city by a nuclear terrorist strike.

But his time and power are running out…

Terminus is a perspective-altering saga that delves into ageless themes of redemption, destiny, and the eternal power of love.

The Story Behind Terminus by Joshua Graham

The inspiration for Terminus actually came from ideas floating around my head over the years, having read C.S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters, and Max Lucado’s Fearless.  The concept of a spiritual dimension in which angels and demons operate has always fascinated me, but where it really hits home is where that dimension intersects and interacts with the physical dimension in which we humans live. 

Screwtape shows us how a great deal of what we struggle with is simply distraction—smoke and mirrors, so to speak—not necessarily the horrific manifestations that you find in The Exorcist. One of the most effective weapons demons use is to make a human believe they don’t exist.

In Fearless we are encouraged to imagine a life free of the fear of death.  One of its chapters deals with living free of the fear of death.  Everyone fears death to some degree, but the key to living a life unafraid, and facing death without trepidation is having an eternal hope.   Eternity is a concept about which I frequently write.  Perhaps all the loss I’ve experienced over the past decade prompted me to think, study, and pray deeply about the subject. 

In any case, as I began to conceive the story of TERMINUS, I felt it not important not only to write a thriller filled with action, high-stakes, and a romance, but to express some perspectives on the subject of spiritual warfare, angels, demons, heaven, and eternity in metaphorical terms as well.

My hope is that readers will enjoy TERMINUS as a thriller, and also find some meaning and hope in its theme as well.  And, I would love it if everyone would sign up for my rare-to-occasional newsletter here:  www.Joshua-Graham.com/newsletter .  I’ll be giving heads up on new releases, exclusive content, giveaways and contests, and other cool ideas.  I don’t do too many newsletters because I’m way too busy writing books, but I will try to make it fun and engaging.

  1. I'm not real big on angles and demons myself, but this looks interesting.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
