Guest Post – The Last Drive, by John W. Howell #newbook …

I am so pleased to be guesting with you today, Chris. I am very grateful to you for helping spread the word about The Last Drive. You have always been so supportive of authors and are a fine one yourself. I think you can understand quite well the changeable mind of an author. For example, I never intended to write a sequel. Once I was into it, though I had to figure out what title to use. I didn’t want anything with the words Eternal Road in the title in order to not confuse anyone or lesd people to believe the story was the same. I finally settled on The Last Drive which describes the nature of the book. There won’t be another so James’ and Sam’s adventures will be the last drive in their Oldsmobile

Here is the blurb and then we can get to a short excerpt from the book.

The Blurb

In the sequel to Eternal Road – The final stop, Sam and James are reunited to look for two souls, Ryan and Eddie. Ryan was killed in Afghanistan, trying to avoid a schoolyard with his crippled plane. Eddie Rickenbacker, Ryan’s hero, is to guide Ryan to his Eternal Home, and now both are missing.

The higher-ups believe that there has been some interference in Ryan and Eddie’s journey by Lucifer, so Sam and James have the task of finding Ryan and Eddie to get them back on the road despite the evil interference. Unfortunately, the machinations designed to prevent Ryan and Eddy from completing their journey take the pair to horrifying testing grounds. The places visited represent the best work of the Devil. They are the trenches of World War I in France, gladiators at the Roman Coliseum, the sinking Titanic in 1912, Hiroshima 45 minutes before the bomb, and the Auschwitz concentration camp in 1943.

This book is for you if you like plenty of action, strong characters, time travel, and a touch of spiritual and historical fiction. So, join Sam and James as they try to find the missing souls while staying one step ahead of the Prince of Darkness, who is determined to destroy all that is good.

An Excerpt.

“Thank you for coming, my child.”

Sam dips her head. “Yes, Sir. I don’t often ignore the summons of the Archangel Michael.”

The Archangel smiles. “You are funny. I do appreciate your humor.

Sam frowns. “Is something wrong, Sir?”

“Why should there be something wrong with me wanting to talk to you?”

“You’re so busy, my Grace, that to take time for idle conversation seems a waste of resources.”

“Of course, I should be the judge of that.” The Archangel looks out the gilded window at the brilliant-white landscape. He pinches his eyes, which water.

“I meant no disrespect, Sir.”

He turns back to Sam. “And none perceived, my child.” He clears his throat and looks away again. “There is a small problem.”

“Yes, Sir?” Sam’s mouth upturns at the corners. She catches herself before a smile appears. This isn’t the time to broadcast being correct about trouble.
