Hallowed Promises is about such unintended consequences, about mistakes made, and the lengths that people will go to in order to right their wrongs.Pride, ego, peer pressure, and disrespect for long-standing traditions can all play a role on the dramatic paranormal stage, just as the rigid adherence to the status quo stifles natural creativity and innovation.Hallowed Promises is the fourth stand-alone book in W.J. Cherf’s series entitled, Adventures in Paranormal Archaeology. It is a thoughtful tale of archaeological discovery, coven espionage and high-diplomacy, and lost love. Once again the Austrian Egyptologist Erik Reissen plays his part, as does the beautiful Egyptian witch Melaina Makris and her husband J.J.

Lew Armistead Holmes’ life was about to get better…much better. Part of the crew of the salvage ship Remnant, she just got a contract to go further into space than she’s ever been before, to retrieve a satellite that is so big it will take two ships to bring it back. The payday is equally large, and her share is big enough to get her off Remnant and away from her peculiar captain and his secrets.
Unfortunately, the captain of the other ship tasked to the job harbors a grudge against Remnant’s commanding officer from the last time the two worked together on a project. Separately, they are each like dynamite—ready to go off at any time. When they’re together, it’s like lighting the fuse.
But the payoff on the unknown satellite is huge, leading both crews to wonder what the satellite holds, and what they aren’t being told about it.
Both crews must work together to bring the satellite back to Earth, but there are plans within plans, and no one is exactly who the others think they are. Who will come back with the satellite at the end of the mission…and who won’t come back at all?
