"This is a sledgehammer of a novel, slamming away at the foundations of modern cult religions until nothing is left but rubble to be carted away. It's a powerful story...An intense experience for those who can take it." Booklist
When Harden Campbell wakes cold and beaten in a dirt-floor cell, he finds only three other things in the room with him: the mutilated body of his good friend, an ancient typewriter, and a stack of blank paper, the top sheet of which has a single, typed sentence.
Tell me a story .
He knows the message is from Coyote, his brilliant, megalomaniacal roommate whose lust for power and reverence has recently revealed him for the true sociopath he is. Now, as the founder of a new religion with disturbing rootsRevelationCoyote's most evil side has emerged. From the moment Harden sees that stack of paper, he knows his one chance of escape is through his own words, and only his ability to successfully recount the dark story of what happened over the past year at Wyland University will determine whether he lives to see the woman he loves once again or is silenced forever.
This will be the most difficult story Harden has ever written, and each word must be chosen with the utmost care. Because Coyote will be reading each and every one of them.

This was a good book and kept my attention. I would have left out all the stuff about the father and the mob. I felt it was more of a distraction then the story needed.
Absolutely could not put this book down! My favorite books are books you cannot get enough of, stay up until wee hours of the night and and can't wait to sneek a few more chapters in even if busy. This book checks all of those. I can visualize this book being made into a movie, though all of his books are that way. I really love this writer and hope there can be a sequel to this book!!! Full of suspense! Great read!
I finished Revelation in a matter of TWO HOURS! It is that addicting. I couldn't put it down. I was supposed to watch a movie with my family and had to say no because I really got pulled in. Revelation is a somewhat dark story but has so much humor and fun-filled banter that you can't help but laugh or smile a lot throughout the story. Revelation tells the story of Eve, in her point of view. She grew up thinking she was a normal teenage girl, until she stumbles upon the St. Michael family—Keegan, Asher and Callan—who are supernatural beings and are assigned to protect Eve, especially Asher, Eve's personal protector. But from what does she need protecting? What powers does she possess that makes Heaven want her for the protection of the world and Hell want her to destroy the only thing that could destroy evil? Eve has a sarcastic humor and tries to take things lightly, which got me laughing a lot. Callan...I don't know where to start with this guy. He is the most childish of the characters and the funniest of all. You can't help but love him and love his funny attitude. Asher is so swoon worthy. He is the perfect Adonis. He gives off this vibe of mysteriousness but is a great guy. It sucks that Asher can't love Eve, since it is against the rules for him protecting her; had me frustrated but there are scenes that helped me. There isn't much action happening in this book. It is more filled with information that it is needed so the reader can grasp the concept of it all. The history is very intriguing and captivating. I am positive that Restraint will be more intense and action packed. Revelation is an outstanding story, for both Young Adult and Adult readers. Everybody will be able to enjoy this journey and will be happy to dive in head first. It is a story that will not disappoint.
I really enjoyed this book. From the characters, to the world building it just took me to an amazing place. I couldn't put it down. Take a chance, you won't regret it.
