Editorial Reviews

According to the Mayan Calendar, the end times are coming, and signs of it are everywhere. Abraham Black and his ragtag band of compatriots have to fight the evil forces rallied against them by traveling into the deep past. Colin Moody's performance improves upon Britain's best-known children's writer Celia Rees' dark fantasy, The Stone Testament. With deft characterization and a penetrating, inquisitive voice, Moody makes this audiobook a listening experience that no adult or child will want to miss.

Publisher's Summary

Reports of miraculous phenomena are coming in...a crying statue. A bleeding crucifix. Around the globe, strange signs point to the end of days. Our world is unraveling. As foretold in ancient texts, and marked by the Mayan Long Count, time has nearly run out. Foreshadowed by a sequence of bizarre phenomena and natural disasters, the End Time is fast approaching. Only Abraham Black has the knowledge to stop this from happening, ancient wisdom inherited from those who have gone before him: Edwardian scholar, Aurel Lockwood and American adventurer, Brice Ambrose Stone. With the help of his son, Adam, suicide cult survivor, Zillah, and streetwise Kris, he hopes to outwit the sinister forces ranged against him before it is too late. To succeed, Adam and the others must travel back into the deep past. They must survive in a doomed world, dominated by terrifying Beast Gods, and defeat an adversary of awesome power who is bent on utter destruction. The oldest evil is waiting. It is time.
