Ancient Evil by Brent J. Griffiths is very unique is design, it could be viewed as three separate stories if not for the fact they are woven together and integral to the larger picture.
Jack Snarkey and Andrew Putts are law firm partners. Putts the down trodden partner, is in kept in place by the constant threat of the operating agreement, which he has never actually seen. He fights his battles, and always comes out the underdog when compared to the massive income of Snarkey, but things are about to change. He has a six figure account, and the arbitrator is just about to call judgement. Or he was. Poor Putts seems flat out of luck, and probably broke to boot. The arbitrator dies before revealing his final judgement. But Snarkey has a plan, a way to cash in without starting the drawn out process again. To settle this account he convinces Putts he must, under encouragement and manipulation, reach into realms unseen in the world of law, pierce the veil and deliver the intended will of the one whose will has been contested. But unbeknown to any of them, there is more to this than a simple ruse, and Putts unlocks a potential he never knew slept within him.
I really enjoyed reading Snarkey and Putts, the characters are entertaining, and the plot is well delivered. This is certainly a strong book in what I anticipate will become an ongoing series. It brings a lighter side to the law, and presents characters so contrasting to each other it creates for a great, and tense, environment. I will certainly be keeping my eye out for the next installment. I can’t wait to see how this will pan out, will Putts finally take his place as an equal partner, rather than his partner’s doormat? We’ll just have to wait and see.

Prophecies, to those deemed unjust, are always a cause for concern, especially when they foretell of a person who will wield ultimate power and bring a new age into existence. A ruler, or many in fact, may even go so far as to outlaw a name, and hunt down all those possessing it. But such acts are inconsequential, only a fool believes they can outsmart fate. After all, it always finds a way to reap what it has sown, even if the means turn out a little unorthodox and boundaries, unbreached for time untold, are crossed.
