The Frasier boys are five brothers born in a poor, working class family who possess a paranormal gift, and they have always believed they would be best friends forever. An unfortunate 'accident' changes that belief, and the intricate plans of mythic entities that have waited centuries for a new hope for mankind. In a single day the boys are forced to grow up and ultimately face the dangerous foes that caused the accident. This coming of age story centers on thirteen year-old Drake Frasier, the brainy, introverted middle brother who is the glue that holds the family together, and his destiny to become the one thing that truly terrifies him, a leader.
From the beginning, each brother treks a different path, and the purchase of a Spirit board game to contact their deceased Uncle Wally spirals out of control. Through a series of encounters with mysterious individuals, an ash zombie, specters, gods, a way too nice librarian with access to an amazing secret room, and an annoying neighbor girl with penchant for witchcraft and a huge crush on Drake, the boys discover that they are part of something bigger. Sinister forces plot to destroy them and covertly fracture their relationships. Through the hardships, obstacles and challenges thrown at them, they reluctantly rely on each other and the guidance of a wizened few.
When nefarious forces launch a fatal attack on them as they finally unite to seek an answer to save their grandparents from a lawsuit, they must overcome their broken relationships and become the Brotherhood of Olympus, an elite paranormal fighting unit that hasn't existed in 800 years when it was a secret order of the Teutonic Knights. If they fail to act, if they fail to become what they were destined to become then the world will be conquered by dark powers and be stripped of its beauty to become a literal hell on Earth.

The Brotherhood of Olympus and the Deadliest Game, is the first of a series of young adult horror/fantasy novels that tells the story of Drake Frasier, a painfully shy, intellectually gifted 13 year old boy growing up in Aberdeen, Washington. On a cold, gray Friday the thirteenth, his favorite uncle is killed in a horrible car collision with a logging truck. Drake's life takes a sudden twist after the accident when his family begins to encounter haunting spirits that bring terror and doom upon them. He soon finds that he has unique gifts and abilities that allow him to fight the apparitions, and that there may be a greater sinister plot afoot. But as Drake develops his skills to combat the ghastly specters, his oldest brother continues to use a Spirit Board Game that invites the evil into their lives. Drake must bring his brothers back together to fight the nefarious forces to save his family, and quite possibly the world.
Ms. Furfur launched her first formal foray into the lives of humanity, utilizing the knowledge gathered in the Grand Library of Gehenna, which she took by force 800 years earlier.
