before them on the altar, Shovar could no longer hold his disguise. Anouxia’s
potion and magic were strong, but not stronger than his lust for quickening.
the Celts, he manifested his identity as Lord of Death. Streams of light flashed
between the victim on the altar and Shovar. Druids knelt in fear before the now
transformed white skinned, hooded figure, The Lord of Death. Shovar’s body
quaked with ecstasy as the power of the sacrificial quickening entered him. His
piercing silver eyes glowed with energy. Shovar turned to the crowd in
drunken revelry; pointing his finger reminding them all that he held the power
of death over them, taking whom he would, young or old, when he would and
where he would.
The now sober crowd, fell upon their faces in submission to the Lord of
Death wailing and pleading to be spared. Shovar laughed cruelly reminding
them of the bravery and courage one little maiden possessed as compared
with the spinelessness of the cursed cowards pleading before him.
He scolded them saying, “Worthless swine! You cringe at death. None of
you are brave enough to save your own lives in battle, yet you sacrifice a
young maiden hoping to spare yourselves a poor harvest. You are to be pitied,
cowards! I will come for each of you in my own good time. Remember that!”
With this, the Lord of Death vanished into the night of the forest. His words
hung like clanging bells in the air. No one moved, fearing he might return. The
mood changed from celebration to somber fear which gripped each man’s
heart with hoops of cold steel.
I took great pleasure in writing Destiny's Warriors. Celt myth and the
wonderment of Pagan gods sent me on a journey that took 17 years to
write the first 3 books in the series. The brutality of human sacrifice to
appease the gods is a part of history that is horrific. And, the idea of
Gods having to deal with the same emotional issues as mortal man was
fascinating for me to create. This wonderful journey into mystical realms
guided me to continue the saga. I tell of enchanted warriors, mystical
creatures and monsters such as Crimson Death and Banshees. The
struggle to survive, heartache, betrayal and rivalry are what my
characters have to face in this fantasy. You'll cry, cringe in fear and feel
in awe at the romance as you read my tale.
I hope you enjoy reading Destiny's Warriors The Beginning Book #1,
Destiny's Warriors The Last Sacrifice 2nd in the series and Destiny's
Warriors Pure Evil 3rd in the series.
A work in progress:
Destiny's Warriors The Black Shadow of Death Book #4
Both Michael and I enjoy the idea of what motivates people and how far
they are willing to go for their ambitions. We wanted to take this book
down a different path than the previous books. In real life, the hero does
not always win or make the best choice. Moreover, everyone has an evil
streak; for the most part suppressed. Going into our “what if” mode we
were curious to see the dark side of the best, the wisest and the loyalist.
Are there limits to what a person will do for power and knowledge to
proclaim themselves superior to all others? In addition, we became
curious as to the ancestors of our characters and dipped into their
history to wreak havoc on their present time. This tale is a
fantasy/adventure filled with unexpected plot twists, betrayal, lust,
insanity and deceit; spiced with slavery and gladiator competitions all
surrounded by the evilest of magic and the shadow of death.
May a Rainbow be your guide down destiny's path.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun, fast-paced fantasy read!
By Deborah A. Prestwood
In "Destiny's Warriors," R. M. Putnam has created an epic, multi-generational story of myth, magic and Celtic lore. In a
tale spanning thousands of years, the reader is carried back in time to a mystical realm of gods, goddesses, druids, fairies,
elves, and mortals.
The storytelling is fast-paced and action-packed, filled with scenes of battle, betrayal, anger, revenge, love, and lust. The
characters are developed and complex, drawing the reader into their worlds and making us care about what happens to
Further enhancing the story are realistic dialogues and detailed descriptions. Sights, sounds, and even smells seem to jump
off the pages, creating complete sensory immersion. It is obvious the author relished her story -- I hope she had as much
fun writing it as I did reading it. Thoroughly enjoyable!
4.0 out of 5 stars An epic lies between these pages
By Lez Lewis -
This book is one I would suggest to all those lovers of fantasy who would stay up late reading. This is most obviously the
beginning of an epic fantasy that will drag readers through many volumes. Kudos to the author.
