A very exciting read that will keep you on the edge of you seat.

The author has a great understanding of genetics and the Book of Revelations which he creatively weaves into the plot along with archealogical findings.

This brilliant and dazzling novel includes a labyrinthine mystery which will keep most readers glued to every page trying to understand and solve the puzzle. The author has a great understanding of genetics and the Book of Revelations which he creatively weaves into the plot along with archealogical findings. His imagination runs into overtime but the science he uses creates very believable scenarios about how Yeshu ben Pandera, the fallen angel called Lucifer, who is the founder of the world famous pharmaceutical company called Genetek, manages to meld angelic D.N.A with human D.N.A. to finally create... after many millenia ... an offspring ... the Antichrist who is his son. After he was deposed from heaven to earth, it really irked Satan how God had allowed his newest creation, human beings to procreate. He was upset that his status was kept in the old form without this ability. However, over the many thousands of years, he learned to clone himself. The only problem was ... the outcomes were often deformed but over time the deformities were not as repulsive.

The author knows how to hook the reader from the start and build suspense and mystery. The beginning of human life as we know it in this book began over 30,000 years ago in Dar Salaam, Tanzania ... in "The Cave of the Red Serpent". It is in this cave that a genetic mutation occured which effectively increased the size of the human brain. This one mutation on the gene labelled ASPM (abnormal spindle-like microcephaly) allowed humans to migrate and spread human life over many parts of the earth. It gave humans an advantage, the ability to deal with multiple seasons and environments and overcome the odds ...

Moving up to modern times, it was Dr.

I always love to read books on the 'End of Times,' so I was quite happy to be presented this read. As I began this one I wondered how the author would present this story and I was absolutely impressed by the telling of his tale. As we begin the read we find that ancient stone tablets are found, some dating back thirty thousand years.
However, the tablets and their place of discovery, brim with not only mystery, but death and destruction for many who have the misfortune to encounter them.
We meet Doctor Law and Doctor Myla de Naci, who work together to find out the meaning of the writings on the stones. What they discover is mind-boggling as they uncover a genetic war between God and Satan.However, this couple does not know that their very lives are intertwined in the greatest war mankind has ever known.
And indeed they are key players in what is about to unfold.
I love Revelations and I totally enjoy reading works about the end-of-times, and I have to say that this author weaved a story that took us on this journey with a twist that you would never imagine. It is definitely good versus evil, but in this book author, James Rutledge, uses modern science to weave together the age old story that one day will play itself out. The twist he throws in this adventure is definitely something you would have never thought you'd encounter. I applaud this author for his use of DNA discovery in this read. Perhaps we are seeing a little tad of Quantum science being injected into the spiritual?
All in all, this book is one block-buster read. He forms the characters in the mind's eye with great description, giving us both physical and emotional attributes, that allow you to merge with them, and almost walk in their shoes, if you will. I loved this book and the ending I believe is merely the beginning of yet another story in the making. Very well done. Recommended.

If you enjoy right wing religious novels, you'll probably enjoy this one. It's based on the theory that "Scientists have discovered divine messages in human DNA and cosmic forces have been set in motion in anticipation that humans will soon be able to read them."

A very exciting read that will keep you on the edge of you seat. While I don't buy into the theory myself, I respect the plot and the writing. It's action-packed.

Format: Paperback
Why would leading scientists, political and religious leaders just readily accept that the book of the end of the world is arriving? They can't even agree on things like climate change or how to provide clean water and food for billions of people. That's just the beginning problem with this novel.

Yes, you must set aside some expectations for reality when you read a work about the end of the world but the view inside the book must be consistent and interesting. I just found myself repeatedly bored by the multitude of characters and the discussions of archaeology, genetics and linguistics. There are some exciting moments throughout the book but with so many characters and so much bouncing around between events and people it was difficult to identify with any of them even to care.

This multitude narrows down to Gideon and Myla who are "forced" to work for Satan in his plan to extirpate the human species and replace it with his own model. That is where this novel raises even to earn 4 stars in my opinion. The idea of genetic engineering to create the antichrist isn't new, I recall even the Sci Fi channel had a movie on it, but this twist that you can replace an entire species is a terrifying idea though frankly not filled in very well.

Given that the book really isn't about the antichrist but all the planning to get him (why does it always need to be a him, huh?) the title and the back blurb don't match. I got the impression that the hope is this will become a series of books.
