GENRE: Fantasy


BookCover_Stairway to Heaven - eBook


Corporal Jack Graven should be dead. Murdered by a vengeful angel at his own father’s funeral, Jack is resurrected and returns to life carrying a terrible secret: he is the Archangel Gabriel reincarnated.

Jack’s not the only one with secrets. His older brother, Lieutenant Colonel Tyler Graven “Demon of Kyoto”, has just inherited his father’s fortune and legacy as Lord of War, with no intention of stopping there: Tyler will someday rule the world.

The brothers reunite their elite military unit, “The Four Horsemen,” with Tyler’s longtime flame Colonel Diana Levitas and the mysterious Lance Corporal Jin Xialong. Together they seek to uncover the truth of Jack’s past life and propel Tyler to his impossible destiny.

Thrust into a supernatural war, the Gravens find salvation through the Black Muramasa, a cursed black katana and the only weapon that can destroy immortals. As they uncover more mysteries behind the ancient blade, they come face to face with the Devil himself, but in the most familiar of faces. Their pasts, presents, and futures all linked, the Four Horsemen must end the war once and for all to survive with their souls intact. Failing could mean the end of the world.

A follow up to the explosive first book in the Ballad of Fallen Angels series, “Sympathy for the Devil,” Book 2 is an action-packed, gun-slinging adventure that packs the punch of a military thriller with high-stakes supernatural intrigue.



Her body reclined before me in the soft satin sheets as a pale canvas draped against blood-red curtains. The early morning rays of light warned me that our time together would soon finish, this thought leaving a sadness in me stronger than the sadness of being with her. This sadness rose and fell like her bosom with each breath taken, eating away at my lustful desire to touch her. Instead, I gazed at her slumbering form, wondering if our time together was simply another adventure or if she harbored true feelings for me. Perhaps it was simply revenge for the lies she had been told. Another breath, another desire, then sadness. Then again.


The word echoed repeatedly through my mind.

Seconds morphed into minutes, minutes into hours. I stared cautiously at the beauty of her backside, and her lean body inhaling and exhaling. My own breathing harbored a more physical pain than the betrayal I had wrought, the bullet wounds and cracked ribs popping painfully with every exhale. My pain soon blended into a chaos of emotion that swirled within me, a lustful desire for her competing against the shame of betrayal the act brought.

How can I look Tyler in the eye after this?

Perhaps the betrayal came from Tyler himself.

Did he know it was a trap?

Character Bio: Lance Corporal Jin Xiaolong

 Jin Xiaolong is undoubtedly the most mysterious member of the elite military group The Four Horsemen. At 5 years old Jin watches his Japanese father, Chinese mother, and her entire family get slaughtered by a real life demon. He is taken in by grandparents he didn’t even know existed before the attack and trained to be the perfect ninja assassin. By the time Jin is 16 years old he has killed more men than he can remember. Jin is on a mission to avenge his mother by finding his family’s treasured sword, Kitanai, the demon slayer, and using it to kill the demon that killed his family. After Tyler rescues Jack from the Kyoto Yakuza rumors spread of the Black Muramasa, believed to be in Tyler’s possession. Jin believes one Muramasa will lead to the other and gets close to the Graven family by taking a job as Jack’s retainer, even enlisting in the Marine Corps to fulfill his obligations. Jin finds himself out of his element when he finds himself face to face with one of the Underworld’s most infamous assassins, The Priest. Jin, however, remains by Jack’s side, even when facing The Priest in direct combat. He and Jack are the only two men to ever survive such an encounter. Even after ruining his hands in the fight with The Priest, Jin stays by Jack’s side until he eventually discovers that Kitanai is in Richard’s possession and that Richard himself is a demon. Jin will do whatever it takes to complete his mission.
