In an apocalyptic world with demons on Earth, it can be hard to imagine the shift from normal as usual to unanticipated disaster. How does that happen? The author does a surprising job of scene setting and transitioning characters to their new normal to the point I felt like I needed to watch my back for demons and be wary of lurking threats. Opening with a dramatic foreshadow in the prologue, I buckled down for this reading.
The main characters– Arthur, Aram, Michael, Daniel, and Harris– are your average, mixed group of guy friends who look out for each other. Gradually, their trust in each other erodes. Everyone has disappeared aside from them, it’s dark and cloudless outside. It gets weirder and weirder. I wanted to know immediately where everyone went but, of course, that would end the story too quick and ruin it. My first thought is the Rapture or these guys must be the chosen ones for some sort of apocalyptic duel. Being stripped from their families out of nowhere is the perfect plot for intrigue.
