Publisher's Summary

Humanity is plunging down a slippery slope of morality. Righteous attitudes abound with malice, hatred, and discontent prevailing in the currents riding through humankind. In the spiritual planes, battles between the light and darkness are being fought over souls for their very existence. Assailed on all sides, heaven is left with no choice but to open the seven seals. 

The horsemen are summoned and ride forth. Conquest, the drums of war, hunger, and death are felt by all. 

Humanity is left standing on the brink where the slightest tremor will send it plunging into the abyss. Will humankind survive the tribulation placed upon it? Or will it vanish into oblivion?

Read, it scared me...

...listened to it and it is giving me nightmares...This is unlike any tale John O'Brien has woven for us and it is truly terrifying because of the state of the world today. Mixing current events with biblical verses and all the mythos we have grown up with make you think about yourself, your family and friends and those you do not know. Will it make you change your attitude, the way feel about things and poeple around you. Would you behave differently or do you feel that it is just a great story fabricated by a great author. You decide, either way it is a fantastic tale he has woven and I look forward to the next installment.

One of John O'Briens best books

What an amazing book. From start to end I enjoyed how well he was able to combine religious history regardless of your faith and what society is going through today, with a sprinkle of what could possibly happen in the future. I can not wait for part two of this book.

Well written

I truly was touched at times. It avoid a lot of the agenda driven motives of similar book.

It gives a good foundation for later novels.

Started off with a bang ended with a whimper

Started off with a bang ended with a whimper. I really thought I was going to love this book and didn't.

A little too much detailed description and no real characters to care about. The characters in the book, I'm sure, are to be developed in later books, but this first book should have given us someone to care about. Which it doesn't.

The writer, who writes very well by the way, beats an opinion to death, which unless you are somewhat of a zealot is just plain boring. He also broached politics and frankly, I read to escape politics, and was disappointed.

If you are a religious person, you will probably not like this book. I sure the writer took license with the Bible. But so does every religion I know.

I was just plain disappointed.

Something totally different from John O’Brien

You need to check this book out. John O’Brien takes you on a downward spiral that will make you think and horrify you. Will humanity embrace the light or will darkness prevail? John has the perfect voice for his stories. Mark Gagliardi brings the characters to life just the way I believe John envisions them. For me a great audible book is nothing without an outstanding narrator. Mark is definitely one of the best.

Oh My Oh My Oh My !!!!

What to say about this book. I only hope it's not a blue print for things to come! Very unsettling and sadly reads like a daily newspaper from well pick any day lately. Oh John you have really freaked me out! Do not read (listen) to this book and think you're going to sleep afterwards. You just keep surpassing even your own high standards - though I think I'll go back to some light listening like the "New World Order" zombies seem tame right about now!

As always Mark G. was fantastic!

Fallen is well writing and good story telling of fall of mankind. John O'Brien hits one out of the park with this one. I cant wait for more books.

Good but not my thing

I love John O'Brien's books and loved the look of this. However, I just didn't enjoy it. The long periods of exposition with no real action or interaction made the story drag for me. I lost interest sadly.

A must read for everyone

I loved this book. It has opened my eyes to my actions and how they impact others. It may be a story but there are lessons for all in this book. It’s your best book so far John, thank you!
