Overview

Zeus is the third book in The Balance series - a collection of paranormal thrillers dealing with the unseen world of balancing powers.

Too often life is viewed in terms of good and evil, black or white, and the balance point tipping in either direction is ignored. Why should the afterlife be any different? We are given a choice when we die to move on to the Source, stay on earth and slowly evolve into more of what we were (good people become angels and bad people become demons), or a chosen few can work to keep the Balance between them. The title character Zeus is such a warrior who works to maintain that balance.

After his little brother’s sacrifice to save a friend and fellow angel, Zeus left his service to the Balance and has wandered the globe looking for a way to make Malign pay for all those she had harmed – including his lost brother. The other Balance warriors continue to do their jobs and at the same time try to track down Zeus to help him. Zeus, hiding from them, not wanting to tip the Balance with his own actions turns to the only source of help he can safely utilize, a former enemy and vicious demon to help him take on Malign. Is the enemy of his enemy now his friend, or is it still his enemy?

The novel is written in two styles. Each chapter begins in a soliloquy from the title character Zeus, where he tells pieces of his backstory intertwined with philosophical musings on his family, friends, life and dealing with loss, with the following bulk of the chapter told in a third person narrative.

Meet the Author

Nick Shamhart was born in Sandusky, Ohio on the winter solstice in the years before Americans started electing actors as President. He still lives in that mostly vowel state under protest from half of the voices in his head. The other half could care less where they reside, because they are too busy yammering on endlessly about everything from Sit-Com theme songs to theology and metaphysics. The voices help Nick Write his books - especially his highly acclaimed Balance series. If you like his books please tell your friends all about them. The voices have many other stories yet to tell. They keep...what?....hold on please....yes, I was just getting to...no...no...look, do you want to do this?...well you can't....no....no....yes, alright. The voices say thanks for reading.

    Exciting and Emotional

    Zeus is the third of the Balance Series books. The main character, Zeus, is complex and emotionally torn by his past. His actions and decisions in the storyline make the reader get attached and involved with his dilemma very fast. The other characters are well developed and multifaceted, even those who are evil have reasons for their disposition that are revealed throughout the story. It is a well-written, well-planned and exciting read!
