The final battle doesn't consume too much of the entire story. We get to know the characters a bit and how a small group successfully becomes a larger one. Not a bad story.
Some of the thrills include: a cocaine-fueled motorcycle chase, the concept of the murder-hole, and Romanesque torture.
The way that Jacobs has it structured deftly keeps the story moving, and you don't want to put it down. The clever way the narrator shifts from chapter to chapter made me think of "The Sound and the Fury", had Faulkner written it for the end times.
I was a big fan of Jacobs' first book, "Southern Gods", and clearly, with "This Dark Earth", he proves he's got plenty of good tales yet to tell.
