“Brad, Congratulations and all blessings on The Melting. You know the secret;
it’s courage. We need you and your work.”

metaphysical powers that develop with each year of his life. By his 28th birthday,
he has acquired full power and ceases to age from that moment on. This story
spans his lifetime up to the year 2005.
Brad is currently at work on his third Novel; a story of deceit and mystery called
“DAMEN BRIAR.” Due out in July 2012.
READERS FAVORITE BOOK REVIEW was quoted in saying: “Brad Rieman’s THE
MELTING leads the readers in many directions, with twists and plots that keep the
readers interest. Like Stephen King’s books of horror, the reader has no idea where
the plot is going and yet cannot stop reading.
The Melting is an over the top journey into the unknown. While Rieman is not at
the top of the genre yet, Stephen King may want to watch out.
