You fool. Armageddon is weeks away, right under the Church’s nose, and the Order that is appointed to watch and protect the world doesn't even realize it.
Through The Pelagius Game series, R.J. Jerome introduces the reader to Valstain, the magical realm between Heaven and Earth.
Valstain follows the life of Timothy Anderson as he reveals his haunted past to Father Michael Olshefski, the new headmaster of The Pelagius Order. The Order’s seminary is the training ground of a secret religious society whose job is to find and prepare gifted warriors to fight evil.
But someone on the inside has a different idea.
Now, Tim must expose the true wicked desires of the Order’s leaders to the kidnapped priest. He needs this man’s trust and permission to enter the Holy ground so he may once more venture into Valstain and claim his revenge on those who betrayed him. However, Tim knows mere words will not convince the priest—only tasting the memories locked inside his magical blood will.
It is said once a man has entered Valstain, and experienced the horror within, he is never the same again—that is exactly what the forces of evil are depending on. The Pelagius Game has begun, and the journey into Valstain is only the beginning.
Valstain is a must read for anyone interested in fantasy adventures with plenty of sword fights, vibrant characters, and intricate plot twists.

Valstain is a place between heaven and earth, and I was almost immediately drawn to the story when I opened this book. R. J. Jerome created a world unlike no other, and I found myself traveling to a completely different world as I got into this book: that's what I expect when reading a fantasy, and the author didn't disappoint. This book is full of action, a compelling cast of characters, and plot twists like no other. While it's not exactly a short read, at more than 300 pages, I found myself gripping onto the author's every word. All I can say is that I cannot wait to see what is in store for the second book.
I think many will enjoy this well written fantasy book The Pelagius Game by R. J. Jerome. It tells how the main character, Timothy Anderson finding his way to fight against the The Pelagius Order's evil leaders. The characters are well developed and certainly have a lot of depth to them. There are certainly quite a few twists in the plot. While this is a big book, I still managed to finish it over 3-4 sittings over a few days. It is a wonderful fantasy adventure and is one that stays in my mind long after I have finished reading it. Highly recommended for all fantasy book lovers.
Splendid start and magnificent finish! Interestingly, this exciting book is raging like a bull with diverse twist and turns. Indeed it is a knock-out! This phenomenal book readily blasted off with a captivating prologue. The exquisite characters were shining with glamorous descriptions and flawless execution. This articulate author has easily crafted a whirlwind of unpredictable suspense with his distinguish use of words. Unquestionable, it is one of the best thrillers I’ve read this year. Indeed I enjoyed every millisecond of this exceptional tale.
I enjoyed this book very much. R.J. Jerome really has taken a different approach in his signature world, Valstain. The main character Tim is clearly a tortured soul who has had a run of bad luck, but this dark cloud is offset by the humorous Scotsman who will keep you in stitches. If you like sword battles, giant spiders, and action, the Pelagius Game series is for you.
R.J. Jerome takes the world of Fantasy Fiction by Storm! What can I say about “The Pelagius Game: Valstain,” by Author R. J. Jerome other then WOW! Truly the work of a Master Storyteller, Jerome will simply sweep you away into his world of Fantasy. For the past few nights I have found myself thoroughly engulfed into vivid imagery and multi-leveled character development the likes of which I have not seen since J.K. Rowling and her “Harry Potter books.” Unlike cheep renditions of a long played out fantasy genre, this book presents a unique and original twist that I feel makes it stand out above the rest. Biblical mystery, a torn past, secret societies all set the stage for what is going to make for an amazing series. Main characters, Timothy, and Father Michael Olshefski are described to perfection with interesting and intriguing personalities that are likable and easy to relate to. What they think, feel and experience leave you in awe and have you wondering what is going to happen around the next turn. Then, just when you feel you have everything figured out, Jerome throws in a new twist that will have you turning the pages of another chapter deep (very deep) into the late night hours. Simply Brilliant! Cant’ wait to read the next volume in series. No spoilers but the end blew me away. If you like High – Fantasy then this is the book for you.5 Stars!
