Debilitated in Afghanistan, Angus MacDonald struggles to find peace and escape his nightmares.
He visits Culloden Battlefield, Scotland, where ancient voices traumatize him. They reveal a shocking connection to his ancestors who died in 1746 where he now stands. They compel him to fight again, but this time against an unworldly enemy. Inexplicable and uncanny changes wrack his mind and body.
To protect humankind from slavery Angus must face the past, but more troubling, his future while unraveling the mystery of his heritage. He strives to discover millennia-old truths from Olympus, Greece, and the violent history that produced them. The truth of who bred him to die saving humanity.
The most crucial battle of Angus’s story begins on the same infamous field of his clan’s decimation, but worse, when he returns to Washington, D.C., war follows.

The Blue Pendant by Rob James is an action-packed thrill ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It is complex with many twists and turns, so it is a very hard book to put down once you start reading.
I love, love, love the Greek Mythology mixed in with the paranormal thriller theme. The writing is brilliant and I love the world building, too. I think this is one of the most unique books I’ve read in a while.
The characters are well-developed and drive the plot forward. I really enjoyed following them on their journey as they progressed.
Overall, I really loved this book and I highly recommend giving it a read!
Thank you to R&R Book Tours for the free review copy. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
Rob James is a student of history and geopolitics and writing novels with historical themes is his passion. Dramatic events and tales from history help to create thrills and suspense. They also color flawed but compelling protagonists.
Since childhood, stories of Rob Roy MacGregor, and the ancient Greek heroes heightened Rob’s passion for reading. He knows them and the history of their times intimately, lighting the richly layered backstory of his novels.
When referencing ancient characters, tradition can become repetitive so Rob takes care to provide unique takes on the often-repeated tales. As his plots are set in the present day, intertwining the old with the new demands respect for the old, while giving them a modern punch; a lift to provide relevance and resonate with readers.
