PRLog - May 22, 2014 - SYDNEY, Australia -- He was an entrepreneur, a thrill seeker and a man of vision. Tempting Fate is a new e-book novel by author Matt Eliason, based on historical events and follows the adventures of Henry Giles during the late 1870s.

Drawing on historical records of a real life man, the fictitious Giles takes the reader of this book through a series ever escalating high rope adventures around and on Sydney Harbour.

It is easy to imagine you are there with the characters and the bustle of the young Sydney, the sights and the sounds of busy Macquarie St contrasted with the pleasure of the Australian bush.

Fate turns Henry’s efforts to a new form of adventure with the opportune availability of a balloon that leads Henry into new heights, both financial and in elevation. With every rise there is a fall, and Henry’s is spectacular.

Through it all, our hero is supported by best friend and business partner Tom and along the way he is lucky enough to meet a beautiful and smart young woman who helps Henry in unexpected ways.

‘Tempting Fate’ is available for purchase and download as an e-book at matteliason.com (http://www.matteliason.com/tempting-fate-a-historical-adv...) (Sample chapter available)
