Seventeen-year-old Jack Kulinski is the best mixed martial arts fighter of his generation. So why does fighting scare him so much? In the ring, the sound of swarming bees mysteriously fills his head, and it takes all of his effort to not flee in panic. But when his best friend disappears, and Jack, alone, discovers that he’s been magicked to a terrible land ruled by a murderous god and his violent people, he needs to learn how to face his fears and to fight better than he ever has before.

About the Author

Stephen Murdoch is a writer and impact investor. In the early 2000s, he wrote freelance for a number of publications, from Newsweek, to the Washington Post and The Washington Lawyer, culminating in his history book about IQ tests. In the 2010s, he turned to the kind of fun fiction he gobbled up as a teenager. The first result is The Fire Priest, a book about two California boys who unfortunately come to the attention of a violent and rapacious god in an alternate universe. Stephen is a generalist investor, but particularly likes to invest in the areas of health, carbon reduction, and the circular economy. Before becoming a writer and investor, he was a human rights lawyer in Cambodia. He was born and raised in California to British parents, but now lives in the UK with his wife and three daughters.

Seventeen year old Jack Kulinski is a top MMA fighter but he has a secret, he is afraid to fight. Then one night his friend Denny disappears. Jack was supposed to be responsible for Denny and goes on the hunt for him. This leads him to Tenochtan, a world with a Fire God as a ruler. It seems the god’s priest and priestess have been watching Jack for a while and have plans for him. I have to say that I was completely immersed in this dark world that Jack and Denny find themselves in. I liked Jack as the hero. He has problems, he is afraid of fighting, and has father issues. But he steps up and does what needs to be done. It doesn’t help that Denny seems to find trouble for both of them at every turn. This is a fantastic story that sucked me in, had me reading until late, and sad at the end because I had to leave this dark world. I can’t wait to find out what Stephen is going to have planned for Jack in the next book. If you like good fantasy stories you need to check out this book. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
