5-star by Christopher Dagg for Readers' Favorite
Daimones by Massimo Marino is an apocalypse book with a difference. It is attractively written and the language flows well. "Daimones" explores some difficult themes. Yet the plot didn't tire but shifted gear to an exciting finish. A great read.

Greenleaf Book Group, LLC
Daimones Trilogy. A story that is compelling and offers a glimpse into a realistic world that soon becomes something more. The elements of the plot allow the reader to explore human condition as well as a paranormal existence. 

The story offers a consistent flow, continuity in scene purpose, and progression of events. The characters are well developed and Dan is a solid, yet complex, main character that anchors the story.

From the Author

"Even with the best of intentions, cruelty is just around the corner."

The Daimones Trilogy deals with many themes, from survival and the rebirth of the race of man after an alien apocalypse, to love and romance in a dying world, and the rise of new ethics and morals. 
The Prologue starts with a list of events happened in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Excerpts are from newspapers articles around the world. 

You can search for each of the news articles on google. Also, comments from "officials" are verbatim. Similar strange animal deaths continue unresolved.

The story, on purpose, starts with the confusing life--and manifest lack of information--of characters that, as with the vast majority of us, live their life focusing on a very little world around themselves. Then something happens, and the "heros" arch starts.
The novel, to the more shrewd reader, describes what our world is: we focus on money, we are not looking at what happens around us, we already live in the apocalypse, our real life world tells us we live in a spiritual apocalypse.

Why on earth does Earth become Eridu in the "Daimones Trilogy"?

Every name in the trilogy bears a symbolic meaning.

Eridu was long considered the earliest city in southern Mesopotamia, and is still today argued to be the oldest city in the world. Located 12 km southwest of Ur, Eridu was the southernmost of a conglomeration of Sumerian cities that grew about temples, almost in sight of one another. In Sumerian mythology, Eridu was originally the home of Enki, who was considered to have founded the city, later known by the Akkadians as Ea. His temple was called E-Abzu, as Enki was believed to live in Abzu, an aquifer from which all life was believed to stem.

Eridu, also transliterated as Eridug, means "mighty place" or "guidance place".

This is quite simply a brilliant sci-fi novel and story.

It is a post-apocalyptic vision that is stunning in its breadth and complexity. It easily rivals the power of Stephen King's THE STAND and Neville Shute's ON THE BEACH.

Animals are suddenly and mysteriously dying by the thousands and soon the people follow. Only Dan Amenta and his wife and daughter seem to have survived. They find themselves alone on the planet in Switzerland and begin the search for other survivors.

Massimo Marino has crafted a powerful and entertaining novel that has suspense, action and plenty of anxious moments about the future. It is difficult to stop reading until you find the answer and whether or not they are in fact alone on the planet. The ending is also one of new hope and could easily make for a sequel.

The first edition I read suffered from some significant editorial issues which hampered the reader's enjoyment. The author, to his credit, recognized this and the book underwent some serious revision and line editing by a professional. The newly edited version is stellar. Anyone who loves post apocalyptic sci-fi should read this book. I think now it is even better than Stephen King's The Stand.

I now revoke my earlier conditional 5-star review and give it an unconditional one. The book is so much better. What a jewel!

It was a real pleasure to read that book! Suspense, action and anxiety, they make it very difficult to stop reading until you reach the end, and then make you ask for more! On the other hand, you read emotions, doubts, and love in every page with modesty, very simple and touching words, which makes the story even more concrete and "true". I rediscovered Geneva in a way that I am almost surprised to see living people in the streets now :)

I could see myself in Dan's shoes, finding out that all is the same while nothing is the same anymore... The richness of details about the real Geneva, CERN and surroundings - where I actually live - made me have difficulties to split fiction from reality. What if... crazy world. Are we not the Daimones of all other animals on this planet?!
Brilliant, very well written!

That's exactly what happens to Dan, his wife Mary, and their daughter Annah, in this debut novel by Massimo Marino. This book gives the reader a different view of the apocalypse.

Dan and his family had the almost-perfect life in the French countryside until a mysterious windstorm in February. Nobody realized that anything unusual had happened until it was time to drive Annah to school. Vehicles of every type littered the highway, their dead drivers still behind the wheel. Dan decided to return home and instructed Mary to stay put instead of going to her teaching job. No one was answering the phone at any of the emergency departments. The family didn't know what happened, so decided to go check on their friends next door only to find more death.

Once they discovered that they were the only survivors of some catastrophe, Dan decided it was best to stock up on emergency supplies. Therefore, instead of looking for a new job, which was the plan, he went to the mall and began to collect food, medical supplies and other things the family may need, not knowing what was coming later.

Luckily the internet still worked, so Dan decided to launch a massive campaign to find any other survivors in hopes of learning more about what they were facing. While they waited for a response, not expecting any, they continued to collect supplies, even going as far as befriending some neighborhood dogs and arming themselves with survival gear.

At first, it was hard to simply go into the stores and take things without paying for them, but of course, there was no one to pay. The whole world had become a ghost town. After awhile that got easier and Dan even allowed himself a few luxuries, as well as the needed supplies.

Massimo Marino's Diamones, is a superbly written post-apocalyptic novel. Set in lovely Geneva, Switzerland, the author's portrayal of the area is so descriptive that I felt myself walking through his office building, strolling through the neighborhood, and traveling along the highways.
The story opens with Dan, a man who is unhappy with the administration at his place of employment. He is still in love with his wife, Mary, and actively participates in the homeschooling of his daughter, Annah. Before the end of the day, he has lost his job. He could never imagine just how much his life would be changed after falling asleep that night. Dan woke to chaos, and the world as he knew it had vanished. What happened to all of the people? Were they the only survivors?
I did not read this book quickly - rather I savored it. I had to let each bit digest before I could continue, because I didn't want to miss anything. I have never read a book quite like this one. I cannot recommend this book highly enough!

In this post-apocalyptic story for the thinking person, Marino explores a myriad of moral and emotional issues as well as the mechanics of everyday survival. The timeline is natural, unforced and the European setting adds a fresh perspective. The exploration of human relationships and their importance, of personalities and memories, provide real heart for the tale. Though sci-fi is not my usual genre, I enjoyed Daimones, and look forward to the next two books in this intriguing trilogy.
