About this Book
In East Salem, the elite St. Adrian’s Academy is at the nexus of a satanic apocalypse—and the fatal tide is rising.
When Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights is reunited with the pagans who commissioned it, a dark prophecy begins to unfold in East Salem, beginning with a savage double-murder by hellish creatures straight out of the painting itself. The lone survivor of the attack, a seventeen-year-old Brit, finds sanctuary at Tommy Gunderson’s home—and the place is soon surrounded by demons who seem to be biding their time…but for how long?
Tommy’s pond has been contaminated with Provivilan—an insidious drug that could transform New York City’s children into an army of violence-addicted murderers. But for an occult cabal in the upper echelons of Linz Pharmaceuticals, contaminating the water supply is just part of an ancient conspiracy against all of humankind.
As the clouds gather, Tommy and Dani realize they must infiltrate Linz and St. Adrian’s to stop the dissemination of Provivilan. Even then, it could take a tangible eruption of the battle between angels and demons to save humanity from the supernatural evils that have been summoned to East Salem.
This was a very entertaining series and the final book was excellent. The authors gave us a lot of action, suspense, romance and a few surprises. The authors did a good job with the character development through each story. I enjoyed each of the characters, but I think in this book my favorite was Reese. There was something about his innocence and intellect with a subtle sense of humor in the difficult times that attracted me to him.
This story is definitely a supernatural fiction story. Although there are angels in the story and some talk of God and prayer it is not overtly Christian and would be enjoyed by anyone who likes supernatural or paranormal stories. I don’t think anyone would feel preached out in this story. The hardest part for me is that although a story of God vs. Satan, good vs. evil, yet the characters fight the evil with shotguns and other human items. Although I enjoyed the story for what it is, it’s difficult for me to call it “Christian” fiction.
If you started with this book you might be a little lost on the overall story but the authors do a very good job of giving enough backstory without bogging down this story.
