The Solomon Chronicles is a wonderful journey through time. Both beauty & tragedy combine to make for an excellent read. Am excited to begin the 2nd book in this series to see where the very likable characters find one another again

Pedraza hits his groove as a writer in this second book in the series. The story continues with time travel and magical subplots that keep the story fresh but riveting. Its a great read for fantasy readers with wonderful imagery. I could not put it down and can't wait for third book.

The best kept secret! This book is incredible. Wow!
I can actually feel myself riding horseback down the same dirt trails,
meeting the same knights and royalty, witnessing the same romance, and
fighting in the same battles (which can be very intense) beside my brethren.
It's written as if I'm physically in the middle of a large movie scene and
a part of history, and the characters come alive leading me through time
with a mesh between real history and fantasy. It is very intoxicating and
hard to put down.
I am definitely looking forward to the next book to be introduced. And, I
won't be surprised that if this book gets in the right hands, it ends up at
the movies and is an Academy Award Winner! Kudos to the author!
2020 is turning out to be a busy year for us here at DB Media Entertainment. I have some amazing music coming out on the new Nights Calling album, "Spread the Love" and I am blessed that Michael and I are still creating and trying to make our mark on the world. I could have no better business partner and co-creator.
On top of the new music release in San Antonio, here in New Mexico we are working hard on our new television production "The Route 66 Interviews: Foodies who Rock!!" Unfortunately , with the Corona Virus pandemic striking the entire world, we too have halted all production. We are working hard on rescheduling our amazing guests and we look forward to bringing a trailer or two very soon.
Now on to novel news, I do plan on getting back into book three of The Solomon Chronicles. The third edition has yet to be titled but there is still much to write so something may pop out soon. No expected release date yet but will keep you posted.
