After reading the first book in this series of three, The Curse of Mesphisto's Seed, the Day of Awakening, I was desperately awaiting this second book. And book two delivers in two ways. First it is better written than the previous book, it is so much easier to follow the characters. And secondly, the pace is incredibly fast from the get-go. Mark and Peggy are married, and Elliott is believed dead, at the end of book one. Book 2 shows Elliott alive and well and in the presence of his father. But this book focuses more on the dark prince--Mesphisto than the first did, and naturally our heroes struggle.
Mark, Peggy, Josh and Anne find themselves in the presence of The Devil and Elliott and on trial for mankind, from the first line. Naturally they are quickly found guilty and are locked up in Hell's death row.
Mark's wedding present from Josh was a set of lock-picks and with this set Josh frees them, only to discover they may still be on trail as they check doors in a hallway looking for a way out. Each door they open leads somewhere and each one is sucked into a time in their past where they questioned God. Usually in times of great turmoil and fear and Peggy gets a glimpse of the future, a bad future, a future without Josh.
They finally get out of Hell to discover 16 years have past and doppelgangers have destroyed their lives. Debt is an ugly beast facing Mark, Anne has left him. Peggy has a terrible hairstyle and Josh owns a lodge. The Devil has finally put them out of the way, via the doppelgangers. Our heroes decide to find out why.Read more ›
In The Apocalypse of Silence, Haynes takes you immediately to hell. The heroes of the first novel have been taken prisoner by the devil and sentenced to death for their "crimes." Mark Talbot, who gained unworldly powers after his "death" (in the first book) finds himself momentarily stripped of those powers, but he, his new wife Anne, best friend Josh Riley, and Riley's companion Peggy are never to be found without a trick or two up one of their sleeves, and they effect a breakout - but only after coming face to face, individually, with their most private fears. Unlike what readers found in the first novel, the devil rather than Elliott himself is the true antagonist in these pages, and as such we learn much more about him and his ways than we knew before - such as the fact that he spends some of his days in human form and that he can be, if not blinded, certainly distracted by an obsession that might be considered love in a different context.
You don't leave hell and return to Earth without paying a price.Read more ›

"The Apocalypse of Silence as a book full of energy, imagination and stunning imagery, not to be missed. Keep your eye's peeled on Mr Haynes' progress, he is definitely one to watch..."
Back in the sixties, Josh Riley, a sheriff, and Mark Talbot were tied up in Jim Franklyn's murder case and it involved devil worship. Years later, during Mark and Anne Talbot's wedding, Mesphisto, the devil and his son Elliot trap Mark, Josh, Anne and their friend, Peggy, in hell, for their trial and sentencing. The devil, with all his contempt for humanity and its eternal suffering, finds them guilty, imprisons them in cells and condemns the incarcerated to eternal punishment.
Upon their escape from the confines of their cells they discover other members of Anne's Wedding party are held captive too. One by one, their true journey for deliverance begins as they search for a way out. Hell is a labyrinth of corridors and difficult to flee. These passages lead them to only where the devil wants them to go. Every door opened teleports each member of the cast into their own private turmoil, taking them to different points in their past, back to times they'd rather forget. The devil attempts to break their spirits, hoping not only they will loose faith, but the battle also.Read more ›
