        Everyone needs a hobby And, like most people, I hope one day that my hobby will liberate me from my mind numbing day job I chose writing Not one of the easier ones I chose it at the tender age of 14, churning out terrible science fiction novels that heaped on the cliches and barely hidden tropes of all space operas Thankfully, those creations reside in the prison of an old Commodore 64 hard drive and several 3.5 disks kids, ask your parents in a landfill somewhere And, let me be clear, the world is better for it Along the way, I kept writing Through college Through grad school Through the beginning of my career, such as it is I like to believe I picked up skills I wanted to write novels that had things I wanted to see Fantasy novels that showed magic as a perverse abstraction of the forces of nature and as a weapon of mass destruction, producing action sequences that dive deeply into the surreal And also contain references to Immanuel Kant, but that s just because I m obsessed with Immanuel Kant Because he s awesome But I digress I also wanted to write novels that did genre blending For instance, in Hand of Chaos, my debut novel, I smoosh together elements of a spy thriller and a police procedural with dark fantasy And it s set in present day Try explaining that in a query letter I also wanted to write genre novels that have characters brimming with personal problems, professional problems, and that had lots of sex Sure, novels that do this exist I m not trying to say they don t, I just think too few of them are out there and I intend to do my personal best to increase their numbers Hand of Chaos is first, with to follow in the fictional universe it occupies I encourage you to read it if any of the above didn t completely lose you Thanks for reading.

    1. Note: I was provided a copy for reviewWhen I finished this book I was trying to find the words to describe it and interesting is what I came up with. Hamlet has created a story that is curious and engaging by giving us a supernatural aspect to our world that also looks at religious figures in a different way. Nothing is explained in detail to you, instead snippets and hints are referenced throughout and while there is a lot untold, what is revealed is adequate for the events in the story and sti [...]


    2. If you are into dark magic, arcane weaponry, blood, gore and countless ways to pervert death, then this is the book for you.Sadly, it wasn’t for me. Opening with a hung over character and then piling on an endless array of arcane weaponry descriptions as she tools up to go fight the bad guys did not grab me, nor endow me with sympathy for Anna. The first big scene was undoubtedly fast and gory and really easy to visualise (this would translate well to TV or film), but I got no sense of any rea [...]


    3. I've recently finished reading “Hand of Chaos” by author J. Hamlet. And even though I had the ability to interview him one-on-one prior to reading this title, I must say that I was still surprised by the book. (This is, of course, a good thing)…So, let’s talk about the story In “Hand of Chaos,” Hamlet begins his tale in the wee hours of the morning. Anna, one of the main protagonists, has had a rough night due to some over-indulgences of a more…personal nature. Unfortunately for An [...]


    4. Reviewed for The Masquerade Crew:Hand Of Chaos by J.Hamlet is a cool Fantasy/Supernatural thriller that will appeal to those with a lust for action.What I loved: The vast array of characters are creative and well written. The lead, Anna Wei, is tough and gritty - someone well worth her salt. She possesses arcane powers, fascinating to become involved with if you are unfamiliar, and isn't afraid to use them! I'm not usually a big fan of lead female characters, but in Anna's case I'm happy to make [...]


    5. Hand of Chaos is an action packed thrill ride filled with magic, mentalism, supernatural entities, and more than a few of the walking dead. Anna Wei and her team find themselves one step behind the necromancer, Ethan Morgan, at every turn as he leaves a swath of death and destruction in his wake. This is a highly detailed and well crafted fantasy story. However, it was a little heavy in arcane language for my taste. Of all the characters in the novel, I found myself drawn to Ethan most, even tho [...]


    6. I've been a fan of urban fantasy ever since I read the first book in the Dresden Files series, and Hand of Chaos is a great addition to the genre. It took off from the beginning, and didn't let up through the whole way through. What I absolutely loved about this book was the world building, especially the magic system. While the “traditional” ideas of spell casting are there (spells based on the elements and so forth), I thought J. Hamlet created something really original in the way he went [...]


    7. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Hand of Chaos tells a very complicated story about various realms, characters, gods and entities. At times it can be a bit complicated to make sense of all of the different powers at play in the story and who is fighting for "Good" or "Evil." Having said that though, the characters in the story are very likable and have extreme depth and personality. I really liked the dynamic of all of the varied powers, curses, and magic that are [...]


    8. Hamlet postulates a world where the US Government agencies are covertly affiliated with different world views, i.e. that the CIA is affiliated with Lucifer/Hell, the DOD with God/Heaven and the NSA with Chaos who opposes both of the other two. Anna Wei is an agent of Chaos whose team is facing zombies,a necromancer running wild, super-powered religious zealots all while she is trying to fill out government paperwork, attend training and have a life. There is plenty of action, some world building [...]


    9. Highly detailed and filled with characters that have depth. The writing is good with a good editing job. The characters feel nicely fleshed out with some development. I like the way Anna uses her arcane abilities. It feels fresh and relevant to the story. I received an evaluation copy through Masquerade Tours in exchange for an honest review.



    10. Anna Wei, a mage, works for the NSA division that handles magical incidents. The forces of Hell sponsor the CIA, the forces of Heaven sponsor the DoD, and the NSA is caught in the middle, serving Chaos and making sure neither side prevails. What’s already a complicated situation gets worse when a rogue necromancer sponsored by Plague goes on a killing spree as part of a catastrophic ritual.This setting covers familiar ground, but the author does a good job of putting a spin on it that makes fo [...]
