It is written that once long ago, God became very angry with the inhabitants of this world. In his wrath, God sent a great flood to wash away the wicked people of this world. Or so the story tells us.

But is this what really happened?

What if something happened back then that was so terrible, no one dared to ever speak of it again, lest by doing so, they might reawaken the evil that almost wiped out the entire human race. The story we all know of as Noah and the Ark might only exist to cover up this terrible truth and the true horrors of what really happened back then might forever remain a mystery.

This story follows the life of a man by the name of Garry Henderson, who is by all appearances an ordinary man with an ordinary life. But he carries a secret known only to a select few. He is a psychic.

Garry has been using this special gift for the last 10 years to aid the local police department in tracking down violent criminals. But when Garry starts receiving strange visions and premonitions, he starts to question everything, including his own sanity.

What Garry does not realize though, is that perhaps these strange visions and premonitions have some hidden purpose. Perhaps there is something more sinister at work than the crimes police usually investigate.

Once long ago, an event occurred that struck fear and terror into the hearts of everyone who survived it and brought forth death and destruction on a scale that no one in the years following could even begin to fathom. This calamity happened before and it WILL happen again, the only question is when.

"A solid fantasy which may borrow from several sources, but is still it's own story."

Reviewer: .


Gary Henderson works in a store by day and by night suffers nightmares. No ordinary nightmares but the last moments of people's lives, helping to solve crimes with the police and with a remarkable success rate. But then, he begins to be freaked out by certain people in the present day and his dreams change to a time long, long in the past. One night, he finds himself witnessing the murder of a police officer as a ghost, who promptly rises again and is inducted by her murderer into a mysterious conspiracy of the undead. Gary flees for his life as they try to kill him, trying to evade the undead while his dreams become stronger and more vivid. These dreams also tell of sorcerers fighting an undead army in the past, the same undead army he is facing now, and Gary realises that if he can stay ahead, maybe he can learn how to defeat them.

I was not honestly sure what to make of this as it seemed to be a mix of a religious tract and a zombie story mixed together. However, the more I read and the more the separate stories intertwined the more interesting it became. The plot was a new one for me, but there are several influences and nods to other stories. I also have to say that there are several points set up throughput and it was interesting to see how and when they came back to be used. I also appreciate how the two sets of stories overlap and interact with each other, giving a fitting conclusion. I'm not sure the epilogue was necessary, but it did provide a useful secondary view on the events that occur. The characters were interesting to follow and stayed true to the way they acted through the story. Gary, and his counterpart Nephal both come across sincerely even as events overtake them and they don't understand the full enormity of the events overtaking them. The minor characters, both good and evil, are not cardboard bystanders but are well defined in what they do. I didn't spot any spelling mistakes or grammar errors, however there is one thing that did not help.

There are several authors notes scattered through the book while reading along. I can see why they were there, but they broke the flow of the book quite badly, when leaving them as addenda might have been a better option. The images included really didn't help as well, especially as they were repeated a couple of times. Also the start is really slow and it does take a while for the full plot to uncover.

A solid fantasy which may borrow from several sources, but is still it's own story.
