So The author readily admits he takes certain liberties...And I for one am greatful he did. He admits this part of his storyline did not have the fast action, fast pace of fighting for survival as the first, but in this installment, he gives us behind the scenes of each group as they rise to power; the preacher, who even as the world falls apart believes he is the one to lead the masses and will do whatever it takes to keep that power. The biker who also believes he is chosen for greatness and does his best to hold his group together, the false Colonel and the ruthless, dictorial actons he takes to keep his seat of power. The group that found their way into the Colorado bunker, surviving on hope and faith and the few that are protected behind a veil. Some are believers, some just accepting neither a miracle nor a true explaination just quiet aquiesence. And while War, Famine and Disease have withdrawn, Death still roams...and he waits. After all, man is very predicatable.
John O'Brien has done a masterful job giving us behind the scenes that needed explaination, not hurried but detailed, before the enevitable conclusion of the coming war if not the outcome--- or maybe it is the other other way around; the outcome if not the conclusion....
(Since we know the reason why this battle is being fought and the players, all of them, this might not be a surprise to you but this is another possible spoiler)
I particularly liked his explaination of the hierarchy of both demon and angel which I found very interesting. Now I'm really looking forward to the next installment....or two
Now that I've made that revelation and gotten it out of the way I want to say this is his best book, so far. I say "so far" because I expect more best books to be in the works. This volume gives us a picture of what it might be like being hunkered down, underground, waiting till it's safe to venture outside. Each character handles it in their own way from their different locations. I don't like giving so much information that it spoils it for those who haven't read it but I will say that you will be amazed by the protection the group in Montana receive. It takes a vivid imagination to come up with that scenario, and a lot of talent to put it into words. I hope everyone enjoys this book as much as I did. At the end John provided us with a nice synopsis of the different heavenly beings and their proposes. I appreciated having that bit of information.
Thanks for another great book, John O'Brien.
As always, happy reading.
In this book, the good people and bad lock themselves away to insure their own survival. (Not together)
One community remains outside, but has Angels keeping the harmful toxins and freezing temperatures away.
The novel gives us dedicated readers an insight to the way good characters think and bad. We can feel what they feel through John O'Brien's
descriptive storytelling. This story builds on the first and foreshadows the next like the calm before the storm.
This is a must read for folks that enjoy apocalypse stories. I do believe that hardcore Bible readers need to realize this isn't the Revelation of John,
but a fiction novel by John O'Brien. It is a story with many facets. How would I, the reader do if locked in the fallout shelter with the good people or bad? How well would any of us do? Enjoy!
