About The Book

Title: The One Path
Author: Larry S. Gerovac
Genre: Fantasy
Lucifer asked the Gypsies, “What is the punishment for killing a Dark Warrior?” There was absolute silence. All the Gypsies were in fear for their lives. They did not want to draw the attention of this powerful demon.
Jal, seeing an opportunity for himself yelled, “Life for life.” Lucifer watched as Rayus tried to warn his dad by tugging on his arm.
That evil grin appeared on Lucifer’s face once again as he said, “Jal, was that you?”
Seizing his opportunity he said, “Yes, my Lord Lucifer.”
In this second book of the God Chronicle trilogy, Thomas, God’s Last Prophet, realizes that the only way to beat Lucifer, and prevent Armageddon is by stopping the birth of the Antichrist. In his efforts to find Lucifer, Thomas gets bonked on the head by the Pope using a religious artifact, gets beat up by Gypsies, and almost killed by demons. Eventually, Thomas teams up with a stuttering genius that is possessed by a fallen angel. The unlikely threesome seems to click on all cylinders as they work together and chase Lucifer through Europe. Will collaborating with a fallen angel prove to be a bad choice?

Author Bio
Larry was born and raised in the Midwest. He is a first generation American, U.S. Navy Veteran, ex-Air Traffic Controller, and a retired nuclear worker. He loves science, science fiction, fantasy, and horror. His goal is to entertain readers for many years with some truly out of this world stories.


Book Excerpts

Thomas thought he would put everyone at ease, so he looked at Brother Dominique and said, “You call the young man Myrrh, that’s a very unusual name. I’ve never heard of it before.”

Brother Dominique started to laugh gently as he shook his head and looked at Thomas. “He was a gift given to our brotherhood twenty-two years ago. The Magi gave little Jesus gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.”

“Myrrh! A Gift! Now I get it,” said Thomas.

Brother Dominique said, “Myrrh is a savant. He does not see the world as we see it. He sees everything as a probability. He is simply amazing, and with the information that he finds in the computer, his accuracy is a gift from God. That is how we knew you would be here. We know who you are, Thomas. God speaks to Myrrh in probabilities. We have seen the signs. We know the end-times are upon us. You are God’s last prophet.”

Thomas swallowed hard. He thought, How could this happen? He still couldn’t guess his role in this new development, so he asked Brother Dominique, “Why were you waiting for me?”

Brother Dominique patted Thomas on the hand with his one hand while he held Thomas’s arm with his other and said, “God has blessed me by allowing me to meet you.”

“I am no one special. Only a sinner chosen to do a task.”

“Spoken like a true prophet,” said Brother Dominique. “You still do not understand. We know you, Thomas, unlike anyone else could ever know you. Myrrh has watched your probabilities. He believes your and his path in life are linked. Myrrh, what is the probability that you and Thomas must walk the same path?”

“Ninety-nine point two percent.”

“See there, Thomas, you must travel with Myrrh. But first, there is much that you must learn. I don’t have much time. Will you please come to my monastery where we can talk privately?”

Thomas thought this whole incident was unbelievable, but it was foretold, so he had better see where events would lead. “Yes, but I make no promises. My task could be very dangerous. I can’t protect myself, let alone another person.”


            This was a fascinating book.  It started out slow and I wasn’t sure I was going to like it, but I was quickly sucked in to the tale.  There is religious underpinnings which may make some people uncomfortable but I found it very interesting.  Some of the religious underpinnings were new to me and things I am not sure are doctrinally sound, but it definitely is worth considering.

            I think the underlying story is one that should be considered.  While written as fiction it has much to teach us about faith and remaining on guard against evil.  I strongly recommend everyone read this book and consider the ideas put forth.

            I give this book 5 out of 5 clouds.

Grief changes people.

Brittany used to be a normal teen. She ate like one, slept like one, and had typical teenage mood swings. But after she found her best friend dead, everything changed.

Grief might explain her loss of appetite and her lack of sleep. It might even explain why she sees her dead friend everywhere she goes. But it certainly won't explain why everyone she touches develops bruises or why she's attracted to the smell of blood.

And, she's pretty sure grief dosen't make you want to rip apart your boyfriend just to get closer to his beating heart.

But what happens when it's the choices we make, not the creature inside, that proves the monster is in us all?


Aviva Bel’Harold writes young adult fiction: Horror, Science Fiction, ­Urban Fantasy, etc. — as long as the ­characters are young, full of life, and out for adventure.

When she’s writing, you’ll find her curled up on a sofa with a pen and a pad of paper, ­surrounded by her adorable puppies.

Born in Winnipeg and raised in Vancouver, Aviva Bel’Harold ­currently resides in Calgary with her husband, four children, and six dachshunds.

Rihaan gave a wry shrug.

“Okay, then let your mom choose your wife and live happily ever after with my blessings,” Rudy said, grinning widely.

“No! Never! I can’t!”

Rudy looked puzzled. “What do you mean?”

“I can’t get married to someone she chooses. I’ll be finished. All those obligations, parties, demanding wife and in-laws. No way, man, I’d rather kill myself.”

“But that’s what marriage is all about—compromise.”

Rihaan nodded. “Exactly. That’s why I’ve kept away from it this long. I don’t want to compromise. I have no interest in assuming the role of a dutiful husband and son-in-law. What I want is somebody who will stay out of my way. Mind her own business while I mind mine.”

“You don’t need a wife. You need a servant.”

“Don’t get me wrong,” Rihaan said. “I just want someone who will comprehend me and my work. I want to continue like I am now…without any distractions. She can do what she wants; kitty parties, pujas, whatever. Just don’t expect me to be a part of it. We’ll get a bigger place. She’ll have all the luxuries she wants.”

“If that is so, I agree. You won’t find a girl like that here. Even if you do, her family won’t leave you alone.”

“Then what am I to do?” Rihaan asked, feeling desperate.

“Maybe you’ll find someone suitable back home?”

“Really?” Rihaan was unconvinced. “Are girls less demanding there?”

“Well…that’s for you to find out.” Rudy shrugged. “Besides, a guy like you is a dream catch. Any father would give his right hand to get a son-in-law like you. Plus, the perk of coming here to the States. Anyhow, that seems to be the only reasonable option for you now.”
“How am I supposed to find this mystery girl? Fly to India and search with a bloody microscope?”

Rudy shook his head in mock disbelief. “Pal, haven’t you heard of the world wide web?”


            A traditional love story in a non-traditional setting.  I loved it.  It had all the markings of a romance…boy meets girl, boy does something stupid and loses girl, boy comes to his senses, problems happen, boy gets girl.  But nothing else follows pattern.

            The story takes a nationality that often has arranged marriages and turns it on its head.  The Indian culture is fascinating and this story takes all that is best and mixes it in.  It is the perfect read for romance.

            I  give this story 5 out of 5 clouds.
