PRAISE FOR TERMINUS

 

 

 

"Joshua Graham's TERMINUS is a fantastic read in every definition of that word. If Tom Clancy had written a novel of fallen angels and creatures that go bump in the night, this would be it: blisteringly paced, high-tension suspense, characters you bleed with. I can't wait to read more!"

—James Rollins, New York Times bestseller of The Blood Gospel

 

 

…A fast paced, adrenaline pumping, spiritual epic…

…Terminus will have you gasping for air, yelling at the characters, and questioning everything you thought you knew about angels…  


Suspense Magazine

 

 

…Highly recommended!

… Powerful and fascinating…

…will keep you riveted while you’re reading and then keep you thinking long after you've turned the last page.  


International Bestseller, M.J. Rose

 

 

 

…Graham has taken stories of old and given them a new spin.

…The characters are richly developed

…Graham left the door open for more stories within this world, and I for one look forward to it with eager anticipation.


Rhodes Review

PRELUDE

 

 

THREE SECONDS.  THAT WAS ALL.

The man in the black leather jacket had looked down for just three seconds to read a text message on his phone.  And in the interim, his five-year-old Houdini of a stepdaughter Chloe had unstrapped herself, climbed out of her car seat, and slipped out of sight—nowhere near the doorway of the office where he was to meet his contact.

Just three lousy seconds!

His mouth went dry. 

He scanned the streets, sidewalk, between cars, to the left then right then a quick three-sixty.  Despite the thorough sweep, which took all of two seconds, he didn’t see her. 

“Chloe!”

She didn’t answer, but he spotted her.  Way down the street, her auburn pigtails bouncing with each step.

“Chloe!  Wait!”  He slammed shut the back door of his Focus.  Didn’t bother to lock it.  Ran up the sidewalk—fast.  But the little stinker was fixated on a black cat luring her across the imaginary border that separated the gentrified arts district of Carleton Village and the slums of East Brentwood.
