Keep reading for a chance to win an ebook copy of The Drifter by Jason P. Crawford.

Book Excerpt

Then it happened – his Second Birth, the gift of his Nature, his entrance into life as an Essential.

His perceptions expanded to encompass the whole of the encampment – he could feel each and every tent, footstep, and fire pit. He knew where each seed lay and where each animal rested.

There was more, however; each of these things knew him. He was connected to them, was one with them, and they recognized him as their master, lord, and father.

To say it was exhilarating would be an understatement fit for the most modest of maidens, akin to calling Leonardo da Vinci a tinkerer; Oreth’s world was shattered and revealed for the flat, weak construct it was, a mere tablecloth, overlying the true reality: the reality of ideas, of ideas made flesh by joining men and women. He felt the snarl from the one who held the GREEN, all things that grow on the Earth, as he stepped into his power, and the clinical detachment of the master of REASONING at this new development. He was flush with strength and possibility, a man made into a god, and the world was his….in a sense.

My thoughts:  After reading Chains of Prophecy, I was excited to get my hands on this excerpt from The Drifter.  My favorite line is, "Oreth’s world was shattered and revealed for the flat, weak construct it was, a mere tablecloth, overlying the true reality: the reality of ideas, of ideas made flesh by joining men and women."  Do you have a favorite line?  Is there something in the excerpt that resonates with you?

What did you think of the book excerpt?


The Drifter by Jason P. Crawford.

The drifter is a man out of time. Plagued by visions of historic events he never could have witnessed, he struggles to understand the strange abilities that seem so natural.

Then Death comes for him. With no choice but to run, he must find allies who can protect him until he learns why he is being pursued.


The keystone of a terrible plan. A society of demigods buried in the rolls of history. Deadly schemes older than man.


Welcome to the world of The Essentials.
