Author Stephen Zimmer writes to the point where there is no doubt what the place, characters, story is all about. The detail with in the pages of this unique amazing book is so vivid you feel you are there. I will be looking forward to reading more from this outstanding, unique author.
The Exodus Gate has some realistic views of the different characters and the worlds they live in. And if you are into urban unique fantasy this book and author are for you.
Seventh Star Press has a Gem of a saga and author here....
As usual I don't want to give away any thing specific in this awesome fantasy world but for me I am looking and wanting more.
I recommend this book as a MUST READ for ever to all my fantasy readers. So pick it up today and let me know what you think!
So due to the above, I am giving this book a Breath of Life ratings of:
Five Clock Rating!!!
Disclosure: I did receive this book for my honest opinion and review. But these opinions are my own and yours may differ.
The setting is a thinly veiled USA after 9/11 and the Patriot Act, with monitors on every corner to watch the citizens and a GPS required in every vehicle, spying by the fictional equivalents of DHS and NSA on folks' computers, mail, workplace, etc., where the big banks rule the world and the economy, where there is an effort to bring the entire world into one big religion, and basically bring the entire world under one government, an event that is referred to as The Convergence. Trouble is, the real powers behind the throne are not the government, but demonic forces hell bent on taking back the earth and deposing the Almighty (referred to as Adonai). Jesus is the Liberator, Christians are referred to as Saviorans, Christmas is Saviormass, etc. -- you get the picture. Add into the mix some time travelers from the Noah's ark era -- some good (the An-Ki) and some not so much (the Nephilim, the offspring of demons and humans.) I think the author must be Catholic, since there is a middle land between earth and heaven referred to as Purgatorium, clearly a reference to Catholic Purgatory, which is also the scene of some fighting between the forces of darkness and those awaiting "purification" in Purgatorium (apparently Jesus' sacrifice isn't enough for this author.)
Anyway, I bought the remaining two books in the series to see where it goes. It's not a "keep you up all night" page turner, but it's not a bad book, either.
Of course all fantasy novels have good-versus-evil at their core -- as does EXODUS GATE-- I really liked the way Zimmer weaves that epic struggle with myth, fantasy, religion with a sense of modernity which, for me, made the fantasy genre much more accessible.
I'll definitely be picking up the subsequent volumes of this series.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
