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.

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
The Daimones Trilogy deals with many themes, from survival and the rebirthof the race of man after an alien apocalypse, to love and romance in adying world, and the rise of new ethics and morals.
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.
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".
