Father Pilazzo oversees the renovation of the once abandoned church. He dreams of the flock returning and the ancient church regaining the respect it once had. As the workers tear up the floor, they find a pit underneath inside this man-made excavation is a long forgotten buried wooden crate. The workers excited by their find open the box.------------------ None knew what they have unleashed on humanity. The demon interred is free causing havoc as it leaves a trail of death with every person the monster touches. Father Pilazzo blames himself for liberating the demonic killer as his sin of pride led to his ignoring his nightmares that warned him to stop the repairs. He knows he must end the abomination even if it means he spends eternity in hell for releasing this evil on the innocent.-------------- Although the releasing of an incarcerated buried demon has been done many times in movies and books, Michael Laimo provides an entertaining horror thriller. The demon never rests once liberated while Father Pilazzo is filled with guilt that he knows he will take to the afterlife with him, but also feels accountable as he plans to take the evil one with him even if it means being stuck in hell with this malevolence for eternity. Readers will enjoy this good and evil confrontation as the innocent become casualties.------------- Harriet Klausner

Dark and powerful
Relentless action and terror that builds way past sane levels to a John Carpenter-esque climax of gore, horror and religious profanity that satisfies all the tension of the preceding events.Was this review helpful?

From the same pen (keypad) that brought you Atmosphere, Fires Rising is again set in the seething human story of New York, replete with Catholic zeal, the desperate plight of the homeless and the growing signs that the End of Days is approaching. Only Father Pilazzo and his ragtag band of the desperate can overcome the evil possession of the Construction workers bent on releasing the Dark Chalice to it's Master and taking the Divine Rosary from the forces of Good.
