Author Jonathan J. Drakeabout this book: Do you ever wonder if there is such a thing as fate?

Does it matter which direction you take in life?

Are you judged by your actions?

The answers to these questions lurk in the chilling depths of Hoelbrad Barrow, a place not of this world but now linked by a dark, sinister magic.

Live-Action Role-players Dale, Katie, Jane and Gavin are soon to step foot in this ancient barrow as part of their new role-playing campaign. With only latex weapons and armor they soon discover that they have to use their wits to survive the perils that lurk within.

Barrow of the Damned is a story about human survival. It's about overcoming terrible, dire and desperate situations in an environment akin to our most vile and disturbing nightmares.

The story was good fun to write. It's a dark, twisted tale filled to the brim with action and adventure. There are also elements of dark humour, mythology and a fair chunk of blood and guts splattered throughout the pages.

Jack Magnus from mentioned an interesting observation in his recent review relating to the story-line:

"I enjoyed seeing the parallels between the four friends' efforts to navigate and escape the mazes, and the efforts of Theseus to escape the maze King Minos had designed to keep the Minotaur in check -- and Bloater makes a neat modern-day Minotaur."

Barrow of the Damned was also presented with a Literary Titan Silver Book Award in June 2017.

So, if you enjoy a bit of jeepers creepers horror or chilling tales with dark, twisted elements, Barrow of the Damned might well be up your street. If you enjoy it, please do let me know.
