Jonathan Ryan is a novelist, columnist, and blogger. He has earned rave reviews from the Library Journal, Midwest Book Review and a TIME Magazine journalist. Jonathan grew up poor in Indiana and spent two weeks every summer with his grandmother, who allowed him to check out library books on Bigfoot, the Mothman and ghost stories. He explored all the dark and spooky places of the Midwest, including the mysterious mounds that dot the landscape there, developing a love for the weird, scary and strange. Jonathan's adventurous spirit has led him to live in many states and travel the world. He has given much of himself in an effort to help others, many times at his own risk. He was mistaken for a member of the IRA while encouraging dialogue in Belfast between Protestants and Catholics before the Truce. He has worked among the Navajo and Tohono O'odham nations as well as brought together a group of atheists and Christians to contribute to relief efforts in Biloxi and New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Jonathan has spoken to thousands of people on writing and religion. His writing credits include The Huffington Post, Christianity Today, The High Calling, TAPS ParaMagazine, Intrepid Magazine and the renowned interfaith blog site, Patheos.com.

For a very cheap download this was an excellent read, at the heart of the story was a priests quest to rediscover his faith and love in Jesus...but don't be fooled it was also a great fantasy read for all Harry Potter fans...but with a bit more bite!

3 Gates of the Dead by Jonathan Ryan is a tour-de-force unstoppable horror fantasy that grips you by the scruff of the neck and won't let go until the final page.
