Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Jim Henry has a master's degree in journalism from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, and a bachelor's degree in communications from St. Joseph's College in Standish, Maine. He is the author of the first book in the Universal Life Force Series, titled Antiquity Calais: Standing at Armageddon. He is the father of four, stepfather of two more, and resides in Florida with his family.

More About the Author

Jim Henry has been writing fiction ever since he learned to read in second grade. He completed his first "book" - a 65-page hand-written story titled "Time Warp" when he was in seventh grade.

He continued to write story after story all through his teenage years, before going to college to study broadcasting and journalism.

Through his 20's and into his 30's, Jim was busy writing things other people wanted him to write. He worked for eight years as a daily newspaper reporter for newspapers in Maine, Massachusetts and Connecticut. In between jobs, he attended Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, where he received an M.A. degree in journalism history.

When Jim was 34, he was seriously injured, and it was during his recovery that he learned of the ancient form of eastern medicine known as Reiki. While he was receiving an energy healing treatment, Jim had a vision of a man dressed entirely in black, with his arms outstretched, standing before the Atlantic Ocean. In Jim's vision, the man conjured the largest tsunami in recorded history, inundating the entire east coast. Every city from Portland, Maine to Key West, Florida was devastated.

Jim opened his eyes with a look of fear and shock on his face, prompting the energy therapist to ask what was wrong. He told her of the vision, and she responded, "You have got to write about this."

That scene, featuring a villain whom Jim named Leviathan Avalon, became the opening scene of the first book in the Universal Life Force Series, titled, "Antiquity Calais: Standing at Armageddon."

Jim has subsequently published the second book in the series, titled "Antiquity Calais Ascending Olympus," and he is presently writing two more installments, titled "Antiquity Calais and the Children of Light," and "Antiquity Calais and the Wrath of the Cryptids."

Jim is a single father of four, and he has two stepsons whom he loves like his own children. Each child will have a book dedicated to him or her, so there will be at least six books in the series.

Jim lives in Florida and teaches online, allowing him the flexibility needed to be a hands-on dad for his children.

A thought provoking and compelling read is what I came away with after reaching the end of author Jim Henry's Antiquity Calais Ascending Olympus. A well-written story that would ascend Mt. Olympus itself while keeping the reader intimately engaged with the characters. Highly recommended.

When Jim Henry wrote this book, he wanted to give it backbone, a story behind each of his fantasy driven characters. This is what good fantasy is made of...the whole picture, not just the main characters. Immediately, you are thrown into a whirlwind of activity with Antiquity Calias. And Leviathan Avalon is one bad guy! Jim Henry builds the story carefully, detailing the events that lead up to the ultimate battle of good vs. evil!

2 very enjoyable books. Kept me wanting to read more and more and of course ... I must now wait for the third installment. I think the idea of astral projection, the chariot, Satan and Avalon, Mundoo Asquith, the Coffee Shack, Hecatoncheires, all come together with the gods of Olympus Mons to create a great adventure.

Format: Kindle Edition
Volume two of Jim Henry's Universal Life Force series picks up where volume one left off. The whole cast of characters from the first volume is back, and we get additional insight into what makes them tick. The story progresses along at a good pace as the characters continue on their quest against evil. These are people we really come to care about, and they clearly care about each other, as well.
The science fiction is still strong, but the spiritual nature is even stronger in this one. I find Mr. Henry's ability to blend the elements of Greek Mythology with Christian doctrine to be very thought provoking, and he does it very well, in my opinion. I truly look forward to volume three when it comes out, as I can't wait to find out what happens next.
