Editorial Reviews

Review

The story begins before we are born and goes until the end times. Parts of this book can be very disturbing. I liked this book and it gave me a lot to think about! Anyone concerned about the future should read this book. --KrazyK77

Lavanway has the courage to envision what seems at first to be an entire cosmology, and that's no small undertaking. He has a vigorous talent for description... --Kirkus Discoveries, Kirkus Media LLC

A taxing text, but readers prepared to do the work will find some grand and gripping concepts here. --Kirkus Discoveries, Kirkus Media LLC

From the Author

Few fiction books describe events of the last days with sufficient detail, breadth, and depth to profoundly stir the reader. Earth Sink drills it home. This book is not an easy read. It does not flow like a regular novel. The author's dreams are injected into the story like islands in a sea of prose. Hidden in the prose are imperative messages and deep, thought provoking concepts. If you have been following the news lately, then you will find this book all the more relevant. If you have not been following the news, then you definitely need to read Earth Sink. It puts a perspective on world events, past, present, and future. It's only fiction until it's not. Earth Sink is a uniquely unconventional, apocalyptic epic intended for readers with at least a high school education and some interest in world affairs and signs of the times. The book is a penetrating dramatization that links mankind's pre-mortal existence to events of the last days leading up to the second coming of Jesus Christ. It is written with an Isaiah-like voice of warning. Concepts addressed in the story are framed in such a way as to be understandable to non-religious and religious readers alike. Earth Sink is technologically visionary, socially relevant, and spiritually applicable. Earth Sink is in the WorldCat library database and is being circulated in print in several libraries across America. Earth Sink has received a professional book review from Kirkus Discoveries. The Kirkus Discoveries book review follows: A war erupts on a heaven-like planet and spills over to Earth, embroiling a cast of characters in the desperate birth of a new age for mankind. Early on in Lavanway's complex, problematic work, a main character has a dream. When he wakes, he finds the dividing line between dreaming and waking disturbingly blurred: "It had been going on before I dreamed it, and it had continued after I awoke." Readers who grapple with Lavanway's dense, incantatory prose for more than a few chapters will feel the same way: the threads of his narrative are often completely lost in the profuse detail of his imagined alternate reality--but the ultimate sensation also has some of the good qualities of being trapped inside a dream. On one surface level, this is a very old story of rebellion in Heaven. In the perfect alien world of Antecedeon, all is peace and harmony among its older and wiser inhabitants, when gradually younger spirits, dubbing themselves the New Order, grow impatient with the perfection all around them (and with Antecedeon's wise and benevolent solitary male patriarch--no explanation is offered why a perfect world would need such an anachronistic feature). As the New Order spreads its resistance across space and dimensions to Earth, a story evolves that is both evocatively detailed and maddeningly vague. Lavanway has the courage to envision what seems at first to be an entire cosmology, and that's no small undertaking. He has a vigorous talent for description, which is often pitted against sentences such as, "One of the main reasons behind the World Order's campaign to bring immortality and immersive interconnectivity to the global population was to preserve the World Order's bank of human assets and ensure control over the human resource pool upon which the World Order elites floated." The work shares the apocalyptic, phantasmal sensibility of the biblical book of Revelation, and includes a section at the end citing specific religious passages that inspired much of the story. A taxing text, but readers prepared to do the work will find some grand and gripping concepts here. -- Kirkus Discoveries, A KIRKUS service for self-published and independent authors, Kirkus Media LLC
