I have a confession. Before reading Wormwood, I was not a huge fan of either post-apocalypse and/or angel storylines. But I heard so many wonderful things about this book that I had to put aside my previous likes and dislikes and give this one a go. And boy am I glad that I did! I cannot say enough about Wormwood. D.H. Nevins did a beautiful job setting up this story to feel like you are right there with Kali as the apocalypse is happening. She is a really strong, independent chick who was put in the middle of a horrible disaster. When she meets Tiamat, all Hell breaks loose. You really feel the fact that he is not completely human, in that he has been compelled to end the world as we know it. He is relentless in reaching this goal, even knowing how much it will devastate Kali. His motivations are not clear throughout, which I though just added to the mystery of the story. This is a sad book, but chock full of wonderful imagery, complex characters and a thrilling love story, to boot. What's not to like? I cannot wait to read the next book in this series (which D.H. Nevins tells me will be a trilogy).

Sometimes a reviewer has a book submitted, and stares at the title, and has absolutely no idea where this will take them. Many look their books titles up on Amazon or Goodreads to not only read the cover blurbs, but read other reviewer ratings. I just like to be surprised, and yep what a pleasant surprise was Wormwood written by D.H. Nevins was.

We meet Kali Michaels, who is a young guide at the Pinecrest National Forest while she attends college. Her group at this time is a corporate one on a team building retreat. Occasionally, some member of the group gets out of line and bingo, one of the team, is really getting on her nerves. It will be the last night camping with them; heading home in the morning. Kali sets them up with instructions for the night and pitches her tent further from them taking a break wandering off to Lookout Peak to be alone. It is there she meets a young man, appearing to be contemplating jumping. He looks sad, as she makes small talk getting him to move away from the edge. His name is Tiamat.

It is now ten years later, and Kali is out on a walk and comes upon Tiamat at Lookout Peak. His arms are out stretched, and as she watches him standing there the earth starts to shake, large crevices open, and trees and boulders fall into giant holes and life as we know it ends.

From their conversation we learn Tiamat has actually caused the earth and all on it to die. He and one hundred of his brothers called Nephilim which are half human/half angel sent from God to do this destruction. Tiamat is horrified at what he is tasked to do, and the relationship between possibly killing Kali and protecting her becomes the focal point of this story.

D.H. Nevins has used Kali Michaels as her voice, as we watch the world end.

I’m truly happy I read this book because it’s completely out of my comfort zone. Normally I don’t like books that are post-apocalyptic because let’s face it, it’s all about doom and gloom. Real life provides enough of that which doesn’t make me want to read about it as well. But I was enticed through Laura Thomas and her blog ([...])…I couldn’t resist.

This book is well written and incredibly descriptive. I felt as though I was in this world created by D.H. Nevins. It’s a dark and scary place with perhaps, redemption in the distant future? I did have a couple of issues with the book. First, it was hard for me to truly believe there was a strong romantic pull between Kali and Tiamat. When Tiamat is sent to destroy earth (I’m talking about annihilation!) and robs Kali of her father, I couldn’t feel the angst that should have brought me to tears once she came to that realization. Instead there was a little push and pull between them and POOF; she’s in-love with him. Really?? The other issue I had was, a few of the chapters were slow-moving but once it did pick-up, I couldn’t put the book down.

There were moments I was frightened and horrified but I became entangled in Kali’s world wanting to know what would happen next. A few interesting characters that were absolutely scary were Richard and Merodach. I could only assume Richard to be the devil but I’m not entirely certain and Merodach is just a power-hungry half-breed with a mean streak. When I think Angels, I think some are good and bad but in this book, it didn’t leave me with too much hope that they’re even good at all. Maybe because they’re half human? While Tiamat and Nathaniel seem to possess some of that goodness we believe Angels to have, I still think it’s questionable.

We got a flawed humanity. We got perfect angels, except they seem more like a self-righteous mob than anything else. We got the devil or something close, and an amazingly tough, effective tour guide. Great cover. What kept me from giving it 5 stars? The sense that "they were gonna get it on" pervaded the plot. Plus, I really have trouble with a vengeful, hateful, punishing God. The God in my universe ain't that way, but the God in this book definitely was. I kind of think God is more forgiving than we are, but suppose that doesn't make for a good plot.
