“The graphic details of the story brought me into every event as if I was there. ...I would recommend anyone who enjoys fantasy stories and reading about Native American culture to pick up The Pyres of Destiny.” ~ Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews, Stephanie Chapman
The trial that captured the world’s attention has ended, leaving in its wake a path of humiliation and broken hearts. Jake and Dakota emerge scarred, but free from the shackles of both his past and her guarded secret, anxious to turn the page on a new chapter in their lives. Yet some wounds fester.
Behind the closed doors of the privileged, depravity and dark desires prevail. In a world mired in insatiable appetites and fueled by sins older than mankind, an ancient, evil entity gains strength.
Caught in the crosshairs between two worlds, can Jake and Dakota connect what was to what is? Can they bridge the physical and the supernatural? The Destiny of mankind may well hang in the balance.

“Author D.M. Earley’s word selection makes The Pyres of Destiny hyperrealistic. I fell in love with the narrative style and how each description was painstakingly vivid. The transition between Jake’s visions and reality, the conflict of The Six, and Jake’s dilemma are all handled with perfection. The pace of the story is fast without being overwhelming. The narrative style is intriguing as well as simple; a nice combination that keeps the attention of readers on the story. The suspense was alive in the story, in fact, it was almost the protagonist. Rowtag plays a very important role in the story (and he is, perhaps, the main source of suspense), and his riddles confused me. The author adds just the right number of twists and turns to make sure readers can never guess what will happen next in the story. D.M. Earley did a lot of research about the Native American culture and spirituality, and you can tell that by the depth with which he handles those themes. I would highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a good suspense novel.”
“The Pyres of Destiny impressed me by including references to Native American spirituality with visions, medicine men, and names like Storm Walker and Running Horse. D.M. Earley created seamless transitions from each character’s perspective, and the timeline of events is easy to follow. Jake's and Dakota’s frustration equaled mine when Rowtag would never give an answer to their questions and spoke in riddles. This provided suspense throughout the book. I wasn't able to predict what was going to happen next because of the unexpected turn of events. The graphic details of the story brought me into every event as if I was there. The conclusion was almost painful because of the cliffhanger for the sequel. I would recommend anyone who enjoys fantasy stories and reading about Native American culture to pick up The Pyres of Destiny. The content has extreme violence and explicit scenes, which make this book appropriate for adult readers.”
“As the second installment in the ‘Call of Destiny’ series, The Pyres of Destiny continues to deliver the goods you expect the way its predecessor has delivered. D.M. Earley continues to make Jake and Dakota develop as characters as well as meticulously represent Native American culture. It is a storyline with a strong connection to the first book in the series. If you started reading The Pyres of Destiny, you will be enticed to read The Temptation of Destiny (Book 1). The real inward journey depicted in this second installment is how Jake is struggling to break free from the horrors of his past and trying to live a normal and peaceful life—something that his past would not allow. In the course of facing the demons that plague the life he is trying to build with Dakota, the story becomes even more focused on its theme. The Pyres of Destiny is a potent supernatural drama that stays committed in its depth.”
