Five-star Reviews on Goodreads and Amazon:
"A stunning piece of literary work. Sayers' storytelling and prose have already developed well beyond most. And this is his debut? Unbelievable. Can't wait to see where this talented author goes from here."
"This is truly a great story, a work of art, right from the start the reader is thrown right into the story. This author has taken me by surprise with this story. If I could give this book 10 stars, I would with out hesitation. The characters are very well defined, the flow is great, and the unexpected twists and turns kept me wanting more. But it was the plot which held me captivated even more. Imagine having a guardian angel who actually communicates with you. And of course, if there are guardian angels, there has to be wicked or evil spirits in the mix, and yes, he takes us there. This author has crafted this work of art, which has the reader hanging onto e v e r y word. I really and truly enjoyed this story, and I want more like it! Who is this author????"
"I loved this book. The suspense was amazing and the imagery made it feel like I was in the book and experiencing everything with the characters, at times I forgot I was even reading a book. Each character was super relate able, even the villain. The relationship between Kacy and RG was a very beautiful thing. Overall this book was awesome."
"I was caught up within the first pages! a different take on a horror story because let's face it, if we know we have less then 24hours to live it is a different kind of horror. Really can't wait for more from this author."
"Enticing from the very first page! With RG only having 24 hours to live, puts a 'bucket list' into a short-order perspective...This book awakens part of the unknown spiritual world in a Whole New Way; especially since it is not directly religious. I fell in love with how the inner turmoil roller-coaster was worded, and love of the characters. I have been impatiently waiting for the next book in this series! Thank You Mr. Sayers for an Awesome Read!"
"This was an awesome book. I wish it was longer it was so good. RG and Kacey were magnificent in this book they really pulled it off. I definitely recommend this book to everyone." -Kristina
"Could not put it down! RG only has 24 hours to live and he puts his wife and unborn child first. He's a caring and selfless person he truly is. This book describes the spiritual world in an interesting way without being directly religious."
"A Taker of Morrows is a fast-paced book by breakout author Stephen Sayers. The protagonist has just 24 hours left to live and the book moves at a breathtaking pace as RG navigates a series of 'caretakers' and 'jumpers' who drive the plot forward and really make this book a page turner. In addition to a gripping plot, the author's excellent prose really draws the reader in. With so much terrible writing out there today, an excellent writer like Stephen Sayers really stands out in the world of fiction. I can't wait to read his next book!"
"I am an avid mystery reader but I rarely read supernatural mysteries. Stephen created a totally believable and suspenseful alternative reality. I cared about the characters throughout and rushed to the ending. I am drawn into the world Sayers created and I am looking forward to the next book."
"A thrilling thriller from the beginning - couldn't put the book down and eagerly await Book II - Sayers nailed it!! "
"A real page turner. Great characters and loved the New England backdrop. It's hard to believe this is Mr. Sayers first novel. Really looking forward to the next installment. Makes my wonder who my caretaker is??????? Thanks for a great read Mr. Sayers!!"
" A real original thriller! Best book I've read in years - really loved the unique storyline, and, as someone who grew up spending time on The Cape and Boston area - the local color was fantastic! I can't wait to read the next one. Well done!"
"Quite the enjoyable horror novel! The characters were dynamic and the plot was engaging, and the quick pacing and high tension kept me hooked until the very end."
"A Taker of Morrows is not your run-of-the-mill horror story. In this gripping page-turner, Stephen Paul Sayers delivers a suspenseful battle between good and evil, while simultaneously prompting readers to think about bigger questions: What would you do if you found out you had 24 hours to live? Is there life beyond death? I found myself pausing during my reading to contemplate what I would do in RG's situation. A Taker of Morrows is a thought-provoking novel with relatable characters hurtled into harrowing situations beyond their control. Sayers' skillful pacing, vivid prose, and surprising plot twists had me reading late into the night, and left me wanting to know what happens next. I look forward to the next installment of The Caretakers series!"
"I stumbled upon this book quite by accident, a lucky accident as it turns out. I haven't enjoyed a book this much in a long, long time, and then to discover this is the author's first novel - amazing! I can't help but sing the praises of A Taker of Morrows. Great plot, well rounded, believable characters, perfect pacing and a nice twist at the end. Who could ask for anything more? Do yourself a favor and read A Taker of Morrows!"
"I stayed up all night to finish this book, was surprised and delighted by the revelation at the end, and can't wait for the second in the series. The writing style reminded me in all the best ways of Preston & Childs' Pendergast Series. Any who has spent time in Boston and on The Cape will enjoy the familiar references and have a strong Dunkin Donuts craving while reading. Bravo on a first novel that is hard not to imagine being a movie."
Five-star Reviews on NetGalley:
"This book was a work of art. Absolute perfection. This story will make you think about life and death and what happens after. It will also make you consider the question of how you will handle life and/or death situations. This was a terrific read with terrific characters that draw you in and never let you go! Fantastic from start to finish!"
"Robert Granville has so much to live for. His lovely wife, and his son to be born baby. Then he receives the news his time has come. He needs to live life to the fullest is the briefest amount of time. He won't share wonderful moments with his wife, and he won't be a father to his child. And then....Morrow appears. Did I say appears? Yes I did! He has to hurry and take advantage of the time left to find the solution to be with his family. All he has to do is learn to go from dimension to dimension and frome plane to plane....one more thing....he has to fight a murderous entity. Well written story. One of those where you get deeply involved in the storyline and everything around you ceases to exist"
Five-star Reviews on Goodreads and Amazon:
"Really enjoyed the Taker of Morrows, but this went to another level - keeping me guessing, dreading, hoping for what was next. Can't wait for the next installment!"
"A wildly engrossing novel that I literally could not stop reading, THE SOUL DWELLER is Book Two of the incredible CARETAKERS Series (A TAKER OF MORROWS is Book One). Reading these novels is like finally discovering the untold Truths; or watching through a window on life, a window that has finally been cleaned. Author Sayers gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “through a glass darkly.” RC Granville and his wife Kacey, our protagonists, and RC's father Morrow, see clearly—completely clearly or near enough, and they allow we readers to see through also. The pace is non-stop, the intrigue is complete. This is a series I plan to read over and over again. Mr. Sayers reminds me of the early novels of Frank Peretti. If my idol H. P. Lovecraft were alive today, I think he would read these two novels and say, 'My boy, you got it just right.'”
"Captivating page turner. Couldn’t put this book down!"
"This book was amazing. The first book was great and I loved it. Can't say which I love more at this point. To find out what happened what happened to the chactors in the next book was mind blowing. They grow so much and the nemsis was so unexpected. RG faces the chaallege head on comes into his own. The end was so satisfying. I am addicted to this series fan for life."
"First thing I appreciate is that his is a stand alone story. You can enjoy this one without having to buy the next one to see what happens. Started this book and couldn’t put it down. This story is so different from any others out there. Nice to read a supernatural or outworldly story with no zombies! Story well flushed out and the characters are very individual. Easy to keep them separated. Don’t want to give anything away but the character in the cellar is terrific for giving a little humor when the story is getting scary. Will not be disappointed with this book. Can’t wait to read the future stories."
"The Soul Dweller, second installment in The Caretakers series is a wonderful paranormal horror. I love the characters, especially RG and Kacey and their interesting journey through the worlds. The story just keeps you completely engrossed and I couldn’t put it down. I am impatiently awaiting the third thrilling novel from a great author. Well done, Mr. Sayers."
"Thank you for the experience of following Robert Granville, better known as "RG", through his quest to fight the evil that was unseen by other. I also read a Taker of Morrows, which was the beginning of RG's quest. I have enjoyed the journey, Stephen, you have a reader for life. Keep on writing!!!"
"Loved this book as much as the 1st - maybe more! Original concept with great storytelling. Can't wait to read the 3rd in the series."
-Andrea J. Doyle
"I really enjoyed this book! I liked it better than the first. I must have read the second half of the book in a few hours it was so good. Will wait with baited breath for the next one!"
"This is part 2 of the caretakers. What an amazing tale. A fascinating and entertaining twist on time travel and parallel universes. Very detailed and engaging."
Five-star Reviews on Goodreads and Amazon:
"The Immortal Force, book three in The Caretakers series, is an incredible suspenseful paranormal thriller. The continuing battle between good and evil, caretakers and jumpers, will bring even greater perils to RG and Kacey as well as their friends and family in this engrossing novel. The stories are getting better and better in this amazing paranormal series. I do look forward to the next one."
"I have read the first two caretaker books by Stephen Paul Sayers and enjoyed them very much but I do have to say this was the best yet! The battle between good and evil has higher stakes than ever this time around. With many surprises the story races to a dramatic end with some great twists and turns. Well written with engaging characters and a fast paced story line Sayer is definitely on the mark!"
"I am half way through this book right now and it is my favorite book written by Stephen Paul Sayers so far. I think this book has a leg up over the first two books in the trilogy and I can't wait to see how this one turns out. No spoilers!"
"This is the third installment in the Caretakers series. I love all three books so far. The characters are great and I enjoy seeing them develop over the series. Our protagonists face their biggest challenge to date in The Immortal Force. Incredibly thrilling but also disturbing which is what makes the author's antagonists so gripping. Can't wait to read more!!"
"Stephen thank you so much for letting me continue the journey of these novels. You have drawn me in and held me captive from the first story to the last. Keep the stories coming!! Everyone that reads my review, please read the books. They are mind-blowing!!!"
