WINNER: Pinnacle Book Achievement Award - Best Literary Fiction

“Suspenseful, intriguing and powerfully tense, this is a dark fantasy work like no other. Fans of many different genres, including crime, horror, and mystery will all find something they can enjoy in the pages of author D. M. Earley’s psychologically chilling vision of how the future can affect the present. The characters are well developed, and Jake in particular presents as an everyman whom most people could aspire to or relate to for his peaceful little life. His journey is harrowing, with highly atmospheric and torturous moments of narrative as his psyche is invaded by what he sees and what he thinks he knows about his own destiny. The graphic content is shocking but appropriate to the dark nature of the plot. Overall, The Temptation of Destiny is a masterclass in tension and supposition.” ~ Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews

Jake has the perfect life—a successful marriage, three great children, and a plan set in place for his future. Yet with one tragic twist of fate, all he has achieved is threatened. A glimpse into a bleak existence forces him to make decisions, and sends him on a journey that will forever alter the lives of those in his path.

Dakota, a recent graduate from law school, is eager to start her life in Wind River, a magical place to her since childhood. Legends of strong warriors and beautiful maidens, in a majestic land steeped in lore, have always captured her imagination. This is her piece of heaven on earth.

The Spirits dance across the night sky as the most vile, violent, and darkest of humanity's secrets invade Wind River. Prophetic visions warn of a great battle, and the dead tell tales as the past and future collide.

As the struggle between the Spirit and Mortal worlds tear at the fibers of humanity, everyone has a decision to make. Is it time to tempt Destiny? Can its path be altered?

About the Author

AUTHOR: Like many new authors, I said for years I wanted to write a book. Life, careers, and other necessary evils seemed to always derail that goal. Then, last year, on a road trip out west, I found the spark that ignited "The Temptation of Destiny." My journey began in Hazleton, Pennsylvania. After high school, I joined the U.S. Coast Guard, spending the better part of eight years busting holes in the sky on C-130s. After the military, my career path meandered through the financial services industry, auto industry, bar industry, and construction management. I am excited to start my next adventure with a move out west, and begin work on my second book. New Mexico, The Land of Enchantment, will provide the rich Native American mythology to take readers on another roller coaster ride (as "The Temptation of Destiny" does). In my downtime, I enjoy hiking and other outdoor adventures with my wife. Hunting, fishing, and doing everything possible to stay from falling into the "status quo," fuels me. When it's time to wind down this adventure we call life, I hope to be sitting in a cabin high in the alpine forests of the Rockies, spending the days with my wife, children, family, and friends, reminiscing about the blessings this life afforded us all.
