More About the Author

I write in a number of fields, but always with the hope of telling an interesting tale that will incite a reader to think for himself or herself, to examine his or her own place in the world, and offer a little nudge in the direction of dreams, faith, and personal growth in spite of whatever odds a person has to face. I also believe we were all put here for a purpose. Hopefully, several purposes. I'm a father, a little league coach, a teacher, a friend, and a writer. I struggle to keep that balance, as many of us do these days, but I hold tightly to the belief that I'm doing all I can be doing, and doing what I should be doing.

Customer Reviews

Well too bad he ain't in this book.
Dog of War
There is a major plot twist at the end of the book but that twist is totally in keeping with the subject that is the basis of the story.
Larry A. Culmer
This book is book 4 of the series and I had waited a long time for it to come out.

You can tell that the author must have given up on this series when he started to write this final book. It is HORRIBLE! It is obvious the author knows nothing about how a real US military unit is organized and ran - a captain does not command a Ranger Regiment and a Staff Sergeant would not be a first sergeant in charge of a whole Ranger regiment either, but that isn't the worst part of this book. The worst part is the author totally ignores the other sub plots he had going on in the first three books of the series. Wanna know who cut Baker's throat from book three? Well forget it because his cut throat is never mentioned in this book. Wanna know who Mystic is? Well you won't. Wanna know Carpathia's plans for the reporter? You won't. You wanna know the fate of Navy Chaplain Delroy Harte? Well too bad he ain't in this book. Wanna know how Joey managed to escape the wrath of Zero and his gang? Too bad, no resolution on that one either. Wanna know if Joey and Jenny hooked up? No resolution. Wanna know if Jenny's dad recovered? No resolution. Basically Odom completely ignored everything that happened in the first three novels of this series and thought up some ridiculous new plots for this final novel such as Meagan and other families deciding to fly to Turkey and help out in the war zone and the US military condoning this. I was in a war and I will tell you if my family wanted to fly out there to be with me I would put my foot down and tell them to stay home where it was safe. The author ended this series with a completely ridiculous novel. I am sorely disappointed with this final novel. It is a big let down after reading the first three. I feel like I have wasted time reading this series, especially when the fourth and final novel went nowhere. Save your money and time and don't even read this novel.

There is closure for only one character - Goose - in this last book in this series. Is there to be another book in this series? Or is this all?

I was going to buy some of your other books, but hesitate to do so as I do not want to end up feeling disappointed again at the end, or rather the lack of an end.

Format: Paperback
Books 1~3 in this series: Apocalypse Dawn, Apocalypse Crucible, and apocalypse Burning were all well written, intriguing, well orchistrated works that told the story of soldiers, sailors, and people associated with the military that were left behind following the Rapture of the Church, and events immediately leading up to the Rapture. All of the books dealt with a fictitious war between Turkey and Syria, with the US Army's 75th Rangers and UN Peacekeeping forces caught in between.

The main characters, 1SGT Samuel Adams "Goose" Gander, Captain Cal Remginton, Megan Gander, Joey holder, Chaplain Delroy Harte, Danielle Vichenzo, and Jenny McGrath, are all well-developed characters throughout the novel series. They are shown as real people facing real problems, dealign with real doubts about God and Faith, and Jesus Christ. The settings for the novels are all real places, and the events surrounding each are easily stamped in one's memory. Books 1~3 do well in shaping these characters, telling the story of soldiers caught in between a rock and a hard place on the battlefield, and their dependents and loved ones in the States.

Unfortunately, Book #4: Apocalypse Unleashed, leaves the reader basically feeling empty at the end of the book. There are so many loose ends left untied, so many endings to the story that we are not told and few details left to give us any kind of hint at how this story will eventually end for each individual character. How do 1st Sgt. Gander and his Captain whittle out their eventual adversitiy to one another? What happenes to the CIA agent known as "Icarus"? How does Megan and Joey Gander end up their stories, and what happens with Jenny's Dad? Do 1st Sgt. Gander and Cpl.

I enjoyed the series but at the end of book #4 I felt like there were so much more to be told. It was like a favorite TV series being cancelled in mid season. Mel, find a way to press on.

The books in the series are not bad but it's clear the author doesn't know about the topic he is writing about. That's annoying. A little research would have gone a long way to making this series better.

After having listened to the first three on CD, I was very disappointed that this one wasn't on CD. After reading it though, I was glad that I didn't waste my money on the more expensive audio CD format. Every single story plot was left unresolved except Goose's personal conflict about his faith. As a veteran, I felt most of the military action was very realistic, but it just fell flat when it came resolving any of the sub-plots. Also, it is not realistic that family members would move to a war zone to assist their soldier family members. Very dissappointed and it feels like a television show that gets cancelled in mid-season after you become addicted to it.

Format: Paperback
This was a riveting story although a bit violent which is perfectly understandable in a war book. I don't have any military background but I was still right there in the field with First Sergeant Gander in Turkey and also right with his family at home on the military base in the USA. The emotions of the characters rang true, the mother who has lost her child but understands that it is the Tribulation and that her child is with God; and the soldier who is angry at the lost of his child and doesn't want to believe that he can no longer protect his family and especially his son even though he doesn't want to allow himself to think about it. Now he is in the midst of a war, can he trust those he has always trusted? Was his friend murdered because he was trying to convince the other soldiers that this was Tribulation and that they needed to make themselves right with God? Where will his path lead him, to or away from God? The author's character development is excellent and believable.

This is the fourth book in a series which is based on the Left Behind Series.
