Publisher's Summary

In a future uncomfortably close to the present day, the apocalypse has surpassed all expectations. Hideous demons roam the streets in an orgy of terror, drawing pleasure from torturing humans as sadistically as possible. Ira, a young San Francisco artist, becomes involved with a strange group of scientists and philosophers desperately trying to end the bloody siege. But the most shocking revelation is yet to come.

    Story
    "Too vague."

    I like a story that leaves you wondering about right and wrong, good and evil, etc. However, this one left too many questions about what was going on, and the two books seemed artificially joined after the fact.

    The demons, their background, philosophies, etc., could and should have been explained in further detail. That would have been fascinating enough to keep me excited.

    The Deus Ex Machina is also pretty heavy handed in both books, and kind of cliche'd as well.

    Over all, it wasn't BAD per se', but just kind of disappointing.

    The narration was quite good; I didn't find an inappropriate moment.

    Anyway, my 2 cents worth.

    "the flaming liberals fight monsters"

    Oh god what junk. I couldn't finish it. Anytime a book bases its story around pseudo intellectual fringe groups of academe, forget it. I was waiting for one of the whiney narrators to muse, ?but don?t the demon?s have a right to kill us? After all we are dirty usurping, power drunk Americans; that have never done one good thing for the world.? Stale liberal propaganda with a smidge of LSD induced way out sci-fi, and some sex thrown in for good measure. Trust me this isn?t horror; just horrible. It?s merely a political statement masked behind a horror/sci-fi story. It?s Pravda with a light show. I knew I was in trouble when I heard super scenic Harlan Ellison did some of the narration (is there anything that man doesn?t hate?oh yeah?he loves himself that?s right) do yourself a favor, get anything else?anything!!!

    "What a waste..."

    If you are in for several hours of why capitalism is bad and how philosophical academia is going to save the world, be my guest.

    The premise of the novel seemed very interesting. Unfortunately, as the book progressed, the author's true intentions became clear and it was difficult to even follow the story.

    Don't waste your money or credits on this garbage.
