Overview

“All folklore is based on some remnants of truth, the Bible is no exception… The Horsemen are very real, they are immortal, and their only goal is to feed on mankind’s suffering and enslave humanity.”

An elementary school full of kids destroyed by a tornado… A soldier makes it home from the Middle East only to be killed for his wallet… A mother of three diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer… Random events? NO.

Photojournalist Faye Monroe discovers that the ugliness and cruelty afflicting the world does not arise of its own actions: the countless wars, the outbreaks of disease and natural disasters, even the murder of her friends and family—the work of malevolent architects.

THEY ARE UNLEASHED!

War, Death, Disease and Famine… The Four Horsemen have fed the world endless despair for millennia. But one of them has been destroyed and its spirit seeks a new host.

Faye, together with a Mossad agent and a rebel assassin, quickly plunge into danger, intrigue and supernatural adventure as the trio search for the key to save Faye's soul…and hopefully prevent Armageddon.

A break neck supernatural thriller.

Meet the Author

Stacks of comics and episodes of Star Trek: The Original Series and The Twilight Zone paved the way for Ken’s vivid imagination. And while the Avengers, Captain Kirk, and Rod Serling were not ideal role models, his creative writing juices were flowing.

His love of science fiction and fantasy led to a career in the laboratory, where he conducted experiments and published results as a research scientist. After earning a master’s degree in business, he racked up thousands of frequent-flyer miles as a marketing executive and did consulting for the biopharmaceutical industry. But amidst the business proposals and annual reports sat War of the Oaks and Symphony of Ages, among others, nuggets of inspiration and the fodder for fantasy adventures.

Ken lives in the Bay Area with his wife and two children. He enjoys attending sci-fi and fantasy conventions, often in costume, mingling with science fiction and fantasy fans and letting his geek flag fly.

    Loved reading this book. You actually got to know the characters

    Loved reading this book. You actually got to know the characters in this story, and unpredictable this story was. Fast paced, modern with historical reference and somewhat believable. Will be looking for the second book.

    Loved this book

    Absolutely enjoyed reading this book. Admittedly, I was a bit reluctant to depart from my usual list of go-to authors and read a first time author, but I was incredibly surprised by the content, characters and fast paced content of the book. From the moment I started reading, I couldn't put it down. I've never been much of a Sci-Fi follower, but this book opened my eyes to a whole new realm of reading material. I felt like I got to know the characters and hoped that in the end, good would once again conquer evil. The historical references were fantastic and the story line fairly believable - as if the 4 Hourseman could be living in todays modern world wreaking havoc on a global scale. Very impressed with the book and hoping that there is a follow-on book in the works. Love books where the characters continue on facing new adventures and adversity.

    OMG!!!...Fast Paced, Action Packed and Different! - Highly Recommended

    I am not one to review items I purchase online, let alone the books I have read. However, upon reading Ken Smith's Host of the Armageddon I feel compelled to write a review.

    In short, the book is a fast-paced adventure through the modern-day middle east infused with the fast-paced action and excitement of a Clive Cussler novel and the fantasy/mythology of movies like The Mummy. I have to say, this story would lend itself perfectly to a screen play some day....

    Pros:
    - Not your ordinary action/fantasy novel. It takes place all over the middle east
    - Main character is a woman
    - Involves a unique and interesting concept and dark force - The four horsemen
    - Lots of action, detail, and intelligence in Ken's writing
    - The story line is not predictable - lots of plot twists and turns
    - Pages fly by... you'll catch yourself staying up late to finish just one more chapter!

    Cons:
    - Tends to be a bit too much detail in the first few chapters of the book at the expense of good dialogue
    - One or two other nit picks I can't remember - not too many gripes

    WHY YOU SHOULD BUY AND READ THIS BOOK:
    - It is unlike other books of its genere
    - The premise and concept is unigue, refreshing and different
    - It's a fast-paced ride full of twists and turns that are not predictable
    - Book two is in the works!
