    A mysterious alien presence unexpectedly bursts out of sacred sites all over the world and begins to rip human souls from their bodies, plunging the world into a chaos it has never before known. Courage meets cowardice; loyalty meets betrayal as an entire world struggles to survive this incredible end-all war. Heroes emerge, villains reveal themselves, and in the end, something completely new and unexpected happens that at once lifts the fictional characters into a new life and sounds a haunting real-world warning for the future.

    Overall

    This book started out slow but seemed to be building a tempo that had promise of really being masterful. I was sadly mistaken. The whole inter-dimensional plot got so convoluted that I nearly quit listening for good, several times. This author tries to weave too many theories together in describing the final outcome of 122112. There were some intriguing ideas that this book presented but they were thrown in almost as filler and not well developed. It was also a frustration that the author used biblical passages to reference the apocalyptic events, but the book is far from having any evangelical Christian eschatological foundation. When the main character finally enters the demonic dimension toward the end of the book things got especially weird; i.e. the reason for my review title.
    This was a book written for the secular masses who only want a good sci-fi story to somewhat tie together the 2012 speculations. Apparently this book is making it to the big screens as well. Go figure.
