Praise for The Seventh Seal...

"I think folks who enjoy apocalyptic fiction will like this story. It's intense, it's not pretty, and it was a good story. Definitely check it out."
K. Sozaeva, Amazon Vine Voice, Top 500 Reviewer

"What if the morning after was also the End of the World? That's what happens to J. Thorn's protagonist in this edgy take on the End of Days. What emerges is an edge-of-your seat apocalyptic adventure full of twists and turns. I couldn't put it down! This is an edgy book, however, and not without controversy. If you don't like your religion or your world view to be challenged, then proceed with caution!"

Vicki Keire, Author of Worlds Burn Through

"It makes you gasp at every turn...J. Thorn does an amazing job of flipping every preconception on its head!"

Jack D. Albrecht Jr., Author of Osric's Wand

My Thoughts and Review

I wouldn't say this was the best end of times book that I have read but it is also not the worst. I did like the premise behind it with a religious fanatical group and the military working together as one to take over America and perform what they call a cleansing. Killing off what they consider infidels, men, women, children it didn't matter. One man after a night of Halloween partying is spared because he is wearing a priest outfit and is believed to be John the Revelator. Before he wakes up into this horribly changed state he had broken his vows, though being drugged, he still feels the guilt and now believes his wife has found out.

The entire book is about him trying to get away from this group, to find his wife, and at the same time not knowing if she survived this cleansing. All the while she is trying to find him not knowing if he is alive. Little do either know forces are using both of them for their own motives.

If you can't stomach violence then this one is not for you there is some pretty graphic violent writing within these pages. But I will say that whenever writings from the book of Revelations were written within the pages of this book I could easily pick up my bible and compare them and not be disappointed. I for one do not like it when a writer takes liberty with his writing to the point of changing what the bible says.

Like I said it was a decent enough read that I will read the novella when it comes out I would like to see if John and Alex hook back up with Johns wife and what happens at the end of this book.
