The final book in The Dry Bones Society concludes the series with a list of twists and one great final boom. While the end of the world is a concept taken on by many authors over the years, Sofer did so in a way that the Israel of the novel’s was separate enough from the world around it to make these actions plausible. Even though the reality that the reader knows is left behind in the first book with the rising of the main character Moshe from death, the events which occur after this flow between actions of the real world and just what the reader wants to happen. Throughout this final chapter in the character’s lives, all questions are answered in due time while new points of interest arise in time for more action to evolve. As the second book looked more closely at a select set of characters, the final book regains its original focal point of Moshe, where most of the action centers around him and his new position. New tension is constructed as the resurrections begin to occur with different frequency and in accordance with ancient texts, which are described to the reader via Rabbi Yosef. With the plot proceeding with clear and well used speed, the facets of Israel’s position in the Middle East are addressed when additional nation’s interests are exposed. Throughout the book a variety of different “End Days” scenarios are described as the events of the three novels are played out. From these descriptions both characters and reader are left wondering truly what will happen, and just how many of these pre-modern ideas would appear. Just as done in the previous two books of the series, Sofer takes this jumble of possible and sometimes mythical sounding events, and manages to create closely realistic situations for the prophecies to materialize. As the series comes to a conclusion, the mysteries surrounding Irina’s death are brought to a shocking end along with a few more clues to Ahmed’s death. With the plot line of there being the two messiahs of the End Days, the reader is kept guessing as to who that may be; for multiple characters possess traits described of the second messiah in the prophecies. With Armageddon approaching, A Premature Apocalypse has both natural disaster and a resurrection to cause pause about the origin of humans. A Premature Apocalypse covers in more depth both the Old City as well the Israeli nation by means of what occurs inside the Palestinian world, and what the West Bank is like for a Jewish person. As the two cultures are brought together by looming promises of salvation, the final book of the DBS series ends with a satisfying twist to wrap up the remaining conflicts of Moshe’s world. With the world inhabited by those both present and past, there is an unending pool of opportunity available to those the reader has come to know over these past three books. Some additional information: The first two books will be discounted from Sunday the 24th to Saturday the 30th as a promotion for the third book on Amazon ($.99 and $1.99 respectively).
