"Different paths are taken by four different people who end up in theexact same place, the place they were destined to arrive at. As with the other books in this series it reads beautifully. The flow and cadenceis once again flawless. I really enjoyed the idea of feeling like I wasreading a whole new story in the first parts of this book and waswondering the whole time how the connection was going to be made to theother books. When the connection was made it was made brilliantly andwith great effect." - William C. Bitner, Jr., Book Review Village

“The Metamorphoses (Kosmogonia Book III)” by Matthew John Benecke reads a little bit differently than the first two books. Actually, it reads a whole lot different if I’m completely honest. In this installment we are introduced to four new characters, Ralph, Samantha, Claire and Kurt. The first third of the book reads like a coming of age piece of fiction as we are introduced to the teens Ralph and Samantha. In the second third we are introduced to a couple misfit adults Claire and Kurt. The last third of the book reads more like the first two books in that it returns to the main storyline and the fantasy and speculative fiction elements; as well as the battle between good and evil. Different paths are taken by four different people who end up in the exact same place, the place they were destined to arrive at. As with the other books in this series it reads beautifully. The flow and cadence is once again flawless. I really enjoyed the idea of feeling like I was reading a whole new story in the first parts of this book and was wondering the whole time how the connection was going to be made to the other books. When the connection was made it was made brilliantly and with great effect. From my understanding there is a fourth book in the works which I am looking forward to reading. It’s been a wonderful journey and up to this point.
Synopsis (from back cover): Ralph & Samantha are childhood friends who find themselves at the cusp of adolescence; for one the change represents an unwanted adjustment--for the other adulthood can’t come quickly enough.
Kurt and Claire are two damaged adults whose lives are forever in flux; one seeks perpetually to outrun the past while the other lives in fear of the future.
Everything changes the day a strange cloaked figure blinks into existence at the Hammermill Mall and performs a miracle--cocooning itself in a chrysalis suspended in the air. Is it merely a publicity stunt for the illusion of the century or the beginning of the end?
As darkness descends upon the small hamlet of Hammermill, New York, these four residents find themselves at a crossroads in their lives struggling to survive against the monsters without while continuing to battle the demons within...
Evil takes on many forms.
