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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
