David Valensky's book "Omega Days" drew me in as if passing the event horizon of a black hole. That's the point when the gravity of "Omega Days" pulled so strongly, so compelling, even the idea of placing the book down temporarily was no longer an option. I was "hopelessly doomed" to forego any other plans I had for the day necessitating me to spend hours engulfed within this masterpiece. When I first picked up this book I was perplexed. I noticed the hand-drawn title with the original colored pencil drawing cover art of a meteor or asteroid streaming to earth while winged angels take flight, imagery clearly foreshadowing apocalyptic doom. Then opening the book I was further surprised by the galley text being entirely laid out with 2 columns per page and terse 4 line copy text each sequentially numbered. So my eye randomly picked out one verse and I read it to myself. "Lambic pentameter" I thought, "with a clever and mature rhyme pattern." I flipped some pages and was further intrigued by the complete layout of the entire book, each page displaying the same 2 columns of 4 line numbered poems. "So much for character development," I whimsically thought to myself. How wrong I was. There are characters - humanity and God. There is scenery - the earth, space and the surroundings within one's mind. A plot, certainly - time itself with existence, survival and the future. Most of all, the matrix of words, the skill of conforming to such a tight structure of poetry, the succession of thought is clearly awesome literary art. It is as of "Omega Days" is written with the skill of a crossword puzzle, whereas under the surface reveals even deeper structure. Such an immense amount of work has obviously gone into the writing of this book. David Valensky demonstrates a talent for such a style like Mozart stylizes Baroque music. I thought to include an excerpt in this review however picking my favorite is an impossible task. Each time I revisited the book I again gravitated into reading David Valensky's work for hours due to his compelling literary attraction, finding even further brilliance as encore readings reveal new thoughts. This book provokes discussion, and sharing with those close to you is unavoidable. Intellectually he demonstrates acumen of talent and spiritual wisdom. David Valensky has a sound foundation in faith and shows the tenuous superficial world in which mankind resides is as frail as a flash of light, whereas faith in God will remain mankind's only beacon of hope. According to Bible prophecies, we are already living in the "last days." I certainly recommend this book to anyone that finds themselves wondering and worrying about the way things are in the world today. In fairness for the reader it should contain a warning label, "Caution: Opening "Omega Days" may result in your inability to put it down until completed, thus altering your plans for the rest of your day." It certainly will change the way you think for the rest of your life.

The author, an accomplished poet, has used his talents to give readers a deeper understanding of spiritual truths. The rhyming couplets are pleasant to the ears; however, the words are challenging, intriguing, informative, and in my opinion, God-inspired. This exciting book presents truth without apology, recognizing the need for people to know what is prophesized to happen in the latter days. David Valensky writes about the temptations of the world and how we need to turn to God for help. All through his poetic selections, we see that prayer is emphasized, suggesting to me that our prayers should be interwoven, spiritual threads of communication with God that strengthen and sustain us. Whether readers have questions about the ravenous beast, four horsemen, bear, dragon, eagle, antichrist, pestilence, disease, and the horrors of war that nations will face, Omega Days, with its unusual creative form, will inform readers and challenge their thinking.

There is nothing more important, as critical, as significant and vital as accepting that we are the most uncertain of times in human history. The consequences of the afterlife are enormous. David Valensky has taken the subject of the end days and Christ's return, and put it in such a way that the reader is awakened to the most importance reason for being. A must-read for Christians, but non-Christians will be challenged in ways they never imagined through the genious yet total readability of Omega Days. If you are interested in eternity, please take a look at this book.
