Darkness Devouring (The Cry of Havoc, Book 2) by John Hennessy

From the biting peaks of Lo’Darrow to the sandy shores of Hell, blood drenches the land. The Northern soldiers regroup with reinforcements after their defeat, ready for the long march ahead. The Southern realms prepare for war with no hope of triumph. And a call deep within Leterra quakes as Mount Ti’Marro spits plumes of molten fire and ash, threatening to blanket the globe in death.

The Battle of Hell is over but the misfortunes and struggle for Tom, Bravis, Keltin, and their friends continue. The group is ripped apart to face their own trials among strange and dangerous races. New allies are met and fresh blood is spilled from the necks of new foes. Tom faces the terrible challenge of killing to stay alive while risking his soul as sacrifice to the cursed armor. Will the group be able to face the devastating odds against them and come out to see each other once more, or will tragedy be their last memories? For when darkness devours, no one survives.

About the Author

Born in 1988, John Hennessy became entranced by the world of fantasy and sci-fi at a young age, playing video games and reading books for many long nights/early mornings. He started writing his debut novel Life Descending during his junior year of High School in 2005. He wanted to write something different for fantasy readers, something without any stock copy/paste characters, supreme evil lords, who you never see and who are just evil because they are evil. A story without class-defined skills, mana potions, and the usual D&D adventure group out on the same old quest. He wanted to write a new story that gets away from the stale fantasies with farmer boys, blacksmith apprentices, and peasants who turn world heroes. Oh yeah, and he really wanted to get away from stories with prophecies and 'chosen ones.'After he graduated from Western Washington University in 2011, he hired Sara Stamey, the editing/publishing professor at Western, edit Life Descending (The Cry of Havoc, Book 1), finally releasing his debut after six years of crafting, learning, rewriting, and absorbing caffeine as fuel so he could stay awake at the keyboard. Life Descending has since been praised by reviewers, even earning a finalist spot in ForeWord Magazine's 2011 Book of the Year Awards. Darkness Devouring (The Cry of Havoc, Book 2) has since been released in late 2012.In 2012 he released At the End (The Road to Extinction, Book 1) as a self-published book. Having spent all his cash on Life Descending (sadly without return), the book went unedited by a professional editor. Despite this major flaw, At the End was well received by most. In February 2013, Permuted Press approached him with an offer to re-release At the End and publish the rest of the trilogy. A second edition of At the End (fully edited!) is forthcoming 2013.John now lives in the Rose Lands of Portland, Oregon, with his wife Katherine, their furry feline Phoebe, and their two budgies Lola and Pablo. He is now at work finishing The Road to Extinction Trilogy. Visit his website at: johnhennessy.net

I must admit I was a bit confused in the beginning but once I start a book I finish it. I have been reading novels for over 45 years. I only remember one book that I just couldn't finish and that was over 30 years ago. That being said I am glad That this book took only a little over 100 pages to get me hooked. I just purchased book #2 and I hope book #3 follows shortly. The story is interesting in its concept. I enjoy sci-fi of all types. This one is a little different than any other I can think of. However I read about 3 books a week so who knows? What I do know is that this book has an unusual ellement to it. I find it great to find a book that is a little different and this one is. I recommend it. I can't wait to see where it goes from here. Give it a chance. I don' think you will regret it. Sanna7125
