About the Author
J.D. Cunegan is known for his unique writing style, a mixture of murder mystery and superhero epic that introduces the reader to his comic book-inspired storytelling and fast-paced prose. A 2006 graduate of Old Dominion University, Cunegan has an extensive background in journalism, a lengthy career in media relations, and a lifelong love for writing. Cunegan lives in Hampton, Virginia, and next to books, his big passion in life in auto racing. When not hunched in front of a keyboard or with his nose stuck in a book, Cunegan can probably be found at a race track or watching a race on TV.

What always gets you hooked on Cunegan's writing (something I love about the Jill Andersen series) is how the seemingly effortless style pulls you right in. Reading the book is almost like watching a movie, with just the perfect amount of description to have you imagine intense battles right before your eyes. Unlike the Bounty series, however, the scale of this adventure is massive: we're in the middle of a holy war, between different planes of existence, connecting different countries and even dimensions.
It's massive. It's epic. What's not to love?
On top of a huge scale end of the world apocalypse scenario, we also have lovable characters you can't help to root for, and a prologue that breaks your heart just two pages in. Jack and his girlfriend Cassandra are professors of Archeology, hired to retrieve a legendary gem from deep inside the Amazon rainforest - only to get thrown into a battle between good and evil that has lasted for millennia, culminating in an epic final showdown on earth and in hell itself. But these two loveable lovebirds are determined to save their world from destruction and will stop at nothing to protect us. Even if it means giving into a prophecy and embracing the role of Chosen One...
What's refreshing is also having the romance portion of this adventure be between two people who have been very much in love for quite a long time. There's no will they/won't they, no awkward flirting: only two committed people supporting each other (quite literally) to the ends of the earth. It's so fantastic to have a healthy relationship in an adventure novel like this!
The supporting cast is also quite amazing. Whether they're displaced out of time, or common people embracing their role in this mess, or even those who have lived at war all their lives, they're complex and steadfast.
And the villain(s) - what's not to love about hating them? Vampires, demons from hell, Gods out of time, giant purple... wait, I won't spoil it for you. How Cunegan has managed to merge so many myths and genres, I will never know. It's masterful!
All in all, if you're looking for fun, Notna is the book for you. Cunegan has entered the realm of fantasy with swords drawn, and you're not soon to forget him! Brilliant and energetic, impossible to put down, treat yourself to a high stakes adventure with Notna.
*I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
‘Notna’ is an interesting take on the world of the Divine and the Underworld, and how it acts and reacts with our own. With a very comic book feel (not a bad thing in the least), we find there is more to the universe than meets the eye. The story was quite interesting and the everyday heroes quite relatable. An enjoyable and fairly quick read.
