More About the Author

Ike Hamill writes fast-paced horror novels with strong, relatable characters. Since 2011 his books have gained a steady following amongst readers who enjoy his blend of sci-fi, paranormal, occult, and suspense. His first series, "The Hunting Tree," became popular enough for Ike to leave his day job and focus entirely on writing. Since that series, Ike's popularity has grown, with "Extinct" becoming his most-read book to date. In some of his books, Ike takes on the entire world. With his recent book, "Migrators," Ike presents a story that focuses on a small family. In either setting, Ike draws compelling characters whom readers are sad to leave behind when the book is finished.

Reviewers compare Ike to Dean Koontz and Stephen King--two of his favorite authors. His narrative often jumps between interwoven stories, presenting readers with a fresh perspective and keeping them guessing until the last chapter. Join Ike's mailing list at and he'll send you a free copy of his next book. Most of Ike's readers are repeat customers. Pick up one of his books to learn why.

Doing the best we can with the cards we're dealt; that's all we can really hope for. But what if that card involves waking up dead, with your organs removed no less, seeing supernatural auras trailing behind possessed toddlers, or channeling spirits from other dimensions in the backwoods of Maine? Hamill takes these situations and more, and weaves them together into a pretty incredible story that kept me turning pages well into the night, day after day.

Lies of the Prophet was a gripping read which incorporated many pop-culture themes, but with really unique twists and new perspectives. Much like his previous book, The Vivisectionist, Hamill creates characters with depth who really drive the story: the friendly neighbor lady who takes a dark turn when touched by fame, the weary diaper-changing widow with a two-year old who actually IS possessed (unlike most two-year olds, who just act that way), or the career-driven man behind the scenes trying to manage an unlikely celebrity persona... these vivid characters come to life on the page, and again left me picturing the scenes on a high-def movie screen with a $13 box of popcorn on my lap. I really enjoyed the twisted journey of Lies, and look forward to my next glimpse into the dark mind of Ike Hamill.

The only reason I generously gave this book 2 stars is because it starts out well. We are immediately dropped into what seems to be a murder investigation. One of the investigators, Lynne, is the new partner. She has no idea what she's supposed to do. It turns out that she's not there for her investigative ability, but because of a special skill she has.

The book jumps back and forth from the present to two years ago which is sometimes confusing. Two years previous, a man named Gregory returns from the dead at his funeral. This isn't a case of someone being accidentally pronounced dead. Gregory was an organ donor and no longer has a heart. He doesn't know how or why he's alive again, but he learns how to turn it to his advantage by becoming a motivational speaker. And, oh yeah, he's immortal. He can't be killed. People begin keeping their loved ones' corpses unburied, hoping that their dead will also return to life. Ergo the investigators, Lynne and Jenko. They work for a company that's also trying to figure out how this happened so they can capitalize on it too. Lynne is involved because of her ability to see 'sparkle,' which isn't really explained but seems to be some sort of electrically generated life force.

So far, so good. An interesting premise. But the story quickly devolves from a believable paranormal tale into an inconsistent collection of the bizarre. Toddler changelings can enslave adults with mind control, but can be captured and tied up. A woman develops the ability to kill by empathy and starts killing whole neighborhoods simply by liking a dog or a child. A cat is brought back from the dead by Lynne-it turns out that Lynne is a Healer, but can't actually resurrect people--and this cat now has special powers too. Somewhere in there, people become zombies.

This is the second book from Ike Hamill that I have been lucky enough to read and I can tell he is quickly becoming a favorite author for me.

What an incredible story that has been put together in "Lies of the Prophet". I have no clue where he could have come up with some of the plot points; I kept finding myself having repeated "holy $#@!" Kind of moments when I would read something wild that was going on. The book is fun/crazy/chilling/creepy/jawdropping...everyone has their own likes and dislikes but I think a lot of people will be glad for having read the book.

I read a lot and one of my favorite things is to find a new writer that just writes in a fashion that makes the reading something that just flows easily; pages fly by and comprehension of the subject is high because you can tell the writer works hard to make sure that the content makes sense and has a flow.

Have you ever had to read a book and you find yourself going over the same paragraph repeatedly not understanding what is going on? You think to yourself that the editor must have gone crazy and used Google to translate the text to Chinese then back to broken English and then randomly moved sentences around just to screw with you?hi

For me Ike Hamill is just the opposite of that; so easy to read and follow. He makes it fun to read his books and get completely wrapped up in the world he has created...characters that are developed well that you care for and worry about them.

There is action that keeps you turning page after page. I don't know how the author comes up with some of these plot points and twists! There is some very crazy stuff going on in Lies of the Prophet. I don't want to spoil anything because when you read this (You really should. You will not regret it) you will see how wild a mind that the author has.

You will have a great time...go for it!

There's a lot this book has going for it: interesting premise, gripping pace, and some really unique ideas.
Changelings switched at birth
Evil toddler babies
Undead but not zombie undeads
paranormal skills
fascinating not-dead cat
mysterious organization investigating the not-dead phenomenum

And then it has its problems:
really major typos and grammar issues.
a plot that never resolves
answers that never come
and an end that makes little sense

I can understand spending most of the journey not quite sure of things: our protagonists are seeking truth, and until they know, we, the readers, shouldn't be expected to have all the answers. The problem is, once the journey ends, we never understood the point of it all in the first place.
We have people dying like crazy, but WHY? Nothing is resolved, no real answers are found, and in the end this is treated to be expected.... and it just died. Like we were on this journey, but we never went anywhere.

*note* as people do die, etc. my questions from here on out my have spoilers. You have been warned.

So here's the main issues that I was left with:

WHY was Lynne being bodyguard/chaperoned?
What happened to Jenko? (or whatever his name was, it seemed to change)
WHY and WHAT was Andrew to Gregory? We hear about how he's 'different towards Greg' when the cameras aren't watching him, so what exactly was the point of all that extrapolation and suggestion?
WHY does Andrew run off into the sunset with Carol?
WHAT is up with the nuns? There's a whole big conspiracy hinted of 'end of the world fanatics' and baby-napping/creating and everyone just ignores it in the end? Really?
Where did Don disappear to?
