Synopsis: Three people face down a mysterious government organization in a search for a series of missing persons in this dark, apocalyptic thriller
What is happening to the country—and the planet?
A government bio-lab experiment goes hideously wrong, infecting people with scientifically-programmed madness . . .
Random kidnappings of women and girls proliferate throughout the land . . .
Some people suddenly succumb to horrifically virulent viruses while others become able to read minds . . .
Mysteriously summoned to confront these frightening questions, three people are thrown together on a bizarre cross-country quest: Cheryl Gibson, an LA cop; Billy Howahkan, a Lakota Sioux with seeming supernatural gifts, and Bhakti Singh, a distinguished space scientist. They must track down a pair of children with extraordinary powers. These two young people will determine humanity’s fate—obliteration or salvation.
As the three set out across America, the blood-dimmed tide is terminally unleashed. Anarchy, terror, and death stalk the land.
Review: As soon as I read the summary of the novel, I was intrigued. I must say that we often have post-apocalyptic stories but eventually this one shows us the Apocalypse itself, a change in the world that affects everyone by different methods. How not to be intrigued?
Yet I have not really managed to hang on the story or the characters. I finally read 140 pages (one third of the book) before deciding to put it down… I do not know if this is due to my state of mind at the time, or if I have only failed to hang on the style of the story but I decided to abandon my reading. I must say that from the start I flew over the pages and I found it hard not to be lost compared to characters and the events. But I think that the novel will appeal to others and I’m curious to see what people will think.
