The material appears to be very well researched and presented in a very "cerebral" story. It leaves you with many questions as to the future of mankind and how careful we should be in choosing the ones we follow.
My only negative on the book is the ending. It was very abrupt for me and I was not expecting it. It was like watching a television show and suddenly, 'To Be Continued', pops up on the screen. Of course, now I will have to decide if I want to know the ending by getting the next book.
Sentences and paragraphs are also poorly constructed thus making it a rather boring read as well.
The idea of a second coming is prominent in nearly all religions. The Christians believe that Christ is coming back to judge the world and Satan. He will bring in a period of one thousand years of peace and perfection. Christian believes there will be a seven-year period when all hell breaks lose, called the Tribulation. There will be severe judgment rained down on the earth. It is described vividly in the book of Revelation, the last book of the Bible. Satan will appear in fleshly form as the Antichrist, similar to how the author presents Antiochus in "Something Coming", except with an interesting twist so that we're not sure what he really is.
The idea of an archaeological dig is fascinating. Finding more than just archaeological artifacts makes it even more interesting. Finding something supernatural? The author peaked my interest and had my attention from start to finish. I love to read stories about the second coming and end times. I am a Christian, but of course the novel paints a much wider picture than just what one religion can offer. But it is fiction. The reader must remember that. I hope no one gets hung up on the facts, it is fiction, painted well
I can't wait to read the follow-up.
Again, well done.
