About Author:

Laurence MacNaughton

I grew up in a creaky old colonial house in Connecticut that I was pretty sure was haunted As a kid, I was a choirboy in a church that was built in 1754 I also pounded out stories on a black manual typewriter until I sold my first magazine article at age 19 Over the years, I ve been a bookseller, typesetter, printer, copywriter and somewhat randomly a prototype vehicle test driver When I m not writing, I bike and hike the Colorado Rockies, explore ghost towns and wrench on old cars But the whole time, I m usually thinking about the book I m going to write next.

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2016/08/16/I knew I was going to have fun with this book, but I ended up liking it even more than I expected. I’ve reached the point in my reading where I already have several go-to authors or series I seek out whenever I want my routine Urban Fantasy fix, so for me to jump into a new UF, something has to be unique or special about it to catch my interest. I’m happy to say that It Happened One Doomsday was just that—fresh, original, and extre [...]


  • Barb (Boxermommyreads)

    This book was so much fun and I'm glad I finally got around to reading it. Dru Jasper runs a crystal shop where she helps people solve problems with magic. She has never considered herself a sorceress like her mother, but instead sees herself as a geek who dabbles in magic and longs for normalcy. That's until Greyson walks into her store and into her life. Once they meet, sparks fly, literally and figuratively. Greyson is turning into a demon and has no idea why, not to mention that the previous [...]

    4 starslynns-books/2016/07/10/itIt Happened One Doomsday is, I think, the first in the start of an urban fantasy series with sorcerers, demons and possessed cars! I must say from the outset that I really enjoyed this, it was a very easy read, I thought the characters developed well along the way, it had plenty of pace and I genuinely hope there will be more books down the line. Basically, this reads like the start of a UF series and it ends on a note that promises more to come – but I genuinel [...]

    First of all, let's get the disclaimer out of the way: I won a free, signed copy of this book in a giveaway. Dru Jasper runs a new age shop, The Crystal Connection, in Denver. She sells enough books, incense, and crystals to get by. She has some innate magical ability, but little training. She dreams of marrying her dentist fiancee and settling down to a nice, quiet life. And then Greyson walks into her shop. He’s handsome, wears a leather jacket, and drives a possessed muscle car. Attempting [...]

    I've had so much fun reading this summer that I've almost made the 5 Batty Moons rating meaningless. It's not hype, I swear; when I give it, I mean it. But sometimes I read something that makes me wish I had an extra-batty Batty Moon to give to books that were such standouts, that I knew I was going to have to get hold of a paperback for my Keepers collection, HOPEFULLY with a signature from this fantastic author. (And I'm not just saying that because he was born and raised in my home state of C [...]

    Oh man, this book is excellent. A great mix of humor, tension, drama and sarcasm. Mr. MacNaughton is an expert wordsmith, weaving together sentences in a way that makes you feel the wind in your hair as it rushes down the alleyway. I can wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who likes smart literature. I can't wait for book 2.


  • Gina

    Could not stop reading. Incredible story with well developed characters. I can't wait to read what will happen next.


  • Guy Ohl

    Incredible story! Very well writtenexciting twists and turns! Cannot wait to see more of Dru and the gang!


  • Mindy McIntyre

    What a fun ride! The story has a little something in it for everyone--muscle cars, humor, spells from beyond, otherworldly creatures hellbent on destruction, and just a smidge of romance. Definitely a quick read with lots of action.My only complaint would be how fast and hard Dru fell for Greyson, but the crazy journey they take afterwards made it totally forgivable. The characters were quirky and enjoyable (Rane was my favorite), and I'm definitely intrigued enough to read sequels. Bring on the [...]


  • Steve

    I received this from Edelweiss and Pyr in exchange for an honest review.DNF at 19%, no rating given.Very fast read, but definitely not my cup of tea. The biggest issue I have with urban fantasy is that they are too heavy on the romance, especially "insta-love". This one is no different, and is filled with the same old stereotypical characters and clichés. Bleh.And why do the main characters in these types of books always do things the hard way, when an easier way always presents itself? O_o


  • Breane Ross

    Great start to a new series! Loved this. Took a little to get into the book but great story and character growth. Now, the wait for the next one!


  • Richard Knaak

    It Happened One Doomsday (Dru Jasper, Book 1) Pyr Books July 12, 2017 by facebook/laurencecI'm starting off this page with a book for which I wrote a blurb a short while back. The first in Laurence McNaughton's modern fantasy series introduces us to Dru Jasper, whose powers revolve around a fairly unique system involving crystals. She's the kind of person who prefers staying low key, which of means that's not going to happen. When a good-looking drifter named Greyson comes into her life seeking [...]


  • All Things Urban Fantasy

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy HAPPENED ONE DOOMSDAY is without a doubt light, quirky, and entertaining urban fantasy. A quick read, IT HAPPENED ONE DOOMSDAY has a heroine more comfortable surrounded by books than doing magic, and a hero (anti-hero?) who drives a muscle car. It is not your typical urban fantasy, and that's one of the things I loved about it!My one big complaint about IT HAPPENED ONE DOOMSDAY was the insta-something between Dru and Greyson. She discovers early on tha [...]


  • Tiffany Peterson

    Overall I really liked the book and would recommend it. The beginning was a little hard to get into but the more I read the more I got into it. The best part of the book was definitely all the action because it kept the metaphorical pages turning. I liked all the characters by the end of the book but took a while to really get Rane's character, but I think that's just the kind of person she is. I also liked that the focus was on the story and not so much on the love between Dru and Greyson. Not [...]


  • Tanya Davis

    Dru Jasper has only a little bit of magic compared to other sorceresses. Her strength is in crystals and she has the ability to give each crystal a little extra power boost. She uses this ability as she runs her store selling crystals. She's struggling and worried about keeping the store open.Then one day a gorgeous guy in an amazing black muscle car visits her shop. His reactions to some of her crystals has her believing he is a demon, but really he is so much more. Greyson needs Dru's help to [...]


  • Nissanmama

    It Happened One Doomsday is a quirky little read. It has sort of a campy feel to it. Clearly this is the first in a new series and I will likely read at least the next installment when it comes out. It’s not an outstanding first book, the writing flips between excellent description and repetitive metaphors, but it did get me to suspend my disbelief—which is no small task in contemporary fantasy. I laughed when the main character Dru acknowledged that fact saying, “I can’t expect Nate to [...]


  • Fantasy Literature

    It Happened One Doomsday is the first book I’ve read by Laurence MacNaughton. It looks like most of his other work would be classified as supernatural thrillers, although Conspiracy of Angels has a definite urban fantasy vibe. It Happened One Doomsday lands on the border of urban fantasy and paranormal romance, with a brisk plot and characters who are, for the most part, likeable. The story relies on the old biblical story of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and by far my favorite thing in [...]


  • Shelley

    *Source* Edelweiss*Genre* Urban Fantasy*Rating* 4.0*Full Review Pending*I guess I am a very different reader from others because I really liked this story. I liked Dru, and Rane, and of course, Greyson. I also liked Hellbringer, and not because it reminded me of the story of Christine, the demon possessed care. This was such an entertaining story, that I plan to read the next installment immediately! (Publisher) July 12th 2016 by Pyr


  • Nicole

    This was the best urban fantasy I've read in a long while. It started off slow but then you hit a point where it's non stop action, beautiful world building, stunning descriptions - it's everything you could want in a book. And that cliffhanger ending! I can't wait to read the sequel.


  • Rage

    this was a fun read. the main character (Dru) is a low-level magic user (sorceress) who works with crystals. she has an encyclopedic knowledge of magic, and especially the magical properties of different crystals (and how they interact), which was really interesting and innovative. it's clear that the author has a very clear image of how this magic would work and what it would look like. the story moves along quickly, introducing nigh-invincible enemies and continuously escalating the car chases [...]


  • Amanda

    Okay, first I should mention that I received this ARC in return for my honest review. Having gotten that out of the way, let me say that I really liked it! This book was very entertaining, and I definitely want to read more.That's pretty much my rating system right there. I give three stars for a book that was okay, but I would read the next one before giving up on the series. I give four stars for a book that I predict I will want to read all the way to the end of the trilogy, or however many [...]

    Magic is real, most do not know about it, like most UFs then. But this sure did not feel like most UFs, and I can't explain what made it so. It's so clear in my head, it is not like the UFs you might imagine right now. Dru is not kick-ass. Mythical past. She does have some magic and she sells crystals. Her boyfriend is a normal guy who knows nothing about magic. She is pretty normal herself.The world is never them and us. It's our normal world, people do what they normally do.But yes, then she m [...]


  • Cindy Atkins

    I have a love/hate relationship with this book. I hate that I have finished it already and have to wait until 2017 to read the next one. This is one awesome story. If you like sorcerers, good against evil and trying to save the world from destruction, then this book is for you. I am not going to tell any of the story, get the book and read it. You will not be disappointed.


  • Katherine

    What a rollicking adventure! This was such a fun story, full of humor, action and witty dialogue. I absolutely loved the three main ladies in this book. They are the driving force behind the success of this novel- their friendship, witty banter and solid determination despite the fact Doomsday is bearing down on them. Urban fantasy isn't normally my cup of tea, but I have found that UF that is written with a heavy dose of humor is more likely to be alright with me. When I first discovered this b [...]


  • Mandy Weeks

    Magic is real. A handful of sorcerers wield arcane power against demons and the forces of darkness. These protectors of the powerless are the best magic-users in the world. Unfortunately, Dru isn’t one of them. She’s got magical potential. She uses crystals to see enchantments, and she can research practically anything in the library in the back of her little store, sandwiched between a pawnshop and a 24-hour liquor mart. She sells enough crystals, incense, and magic charms to scrape by. Eve [...]


  • Jennifer Conrardy

    Argh! Cliffhanger! This book was an excellent read. Fast-paced and full of action. Enough world building that you understood what was going on and not too much that might bog the story down. I can't wait to read more about Dru and the gang!


  • Jillian Getting

    The story begins with our heroine Dru Jasper in her occult shop that sells supplies to dabblers and legit sorcerers alike. Her speciality is crystal work and she enjoys helping customers solve supernatural problems, even if they don't believe their problem is actually supernatural. Dru's world exists from page one which is a great way to start a book (and a series). Sure, we learn more about what actually exists in her world - demons are real and so is the potential for an apocalypse - and she i [...]


  • Brian Palmer

    A quirky owner of a whimsical-sounding magic crystal shop complains about lack of business to her girlfriends when a smoldering mechanic comes in and volunteers to help fix a car . But then the author manages to steer it away from pure romance into a fun, comedic Buffy-esque paranormal romance. It was amusing and light, even as it does go off in the predictable directions. Read the first chapter or two and you'll know if you'll like it.


  • Leah

    I won a copy of this book through a giveaway on, . I felt that the story was a touch slow going at times towards the beginning, but I couldn't not finish it! It really drew me in during the last half & left me wanting more at the end! Took me a long time to read because I didn't have a lot of time, but no matter how long it had been, I kept going back and I'd just jump right back into the story. Love, love, loved the cliffhanger ending, which is not usually the case with me if I don't have t [...]


  • Krista

    Fun book - full of magic, cool crystals, and demon-driven cars. What's not to like?
