CHOOSE THIS DAY WHOM YOU WILL SERVE.
Notre-Dame Cathedral lies in ruins. The mangled corpses of the possessed are scattered in the shadows beneath the pulverized Gothic towers. This is the aftermath of the Manifestation.
Satan has revealed himself to the world, which falls trembling at his feet. Religious genocide sweeps Europe and Asia, and the world's greatest fortresses of faith are smashed to the ground. The New World and Australia become safe havens for refugees fleeing Lucifer's wrath.
Heaven remains silent. The followers of Christ cry out: Where is God?
Patric Bourdon believes in himself. He claims to be a member of the Church of Satan, but in reality, it is his own hedonism that drives him. His zealous and pregnant fiancée waits patiently for him to "man up" and take responsibility for his impending family, but the lure of drugs and debauchery proves too strong...
Until Patric receives a command that he cannot refuse.
Tourec, his self-righteous half-brother, has begun a campaign of terrorism against the forces of darkness. The Church of Satan is paralyzed with fear as Tourec and his band of rogue assassins seek vengeance for the evils that Lucifer has wrought upon the earth, and Patric is commanded to seek out and neutralize his brother by any means necessary...
Or his fiancée and unborn child shall perish.
THE AGE OF APOLLYON will shock and thrill those who enter its world...and this is just the beginning...

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I wasn't even sure what speculative Christian fiction was when I started this book, but now I know...and it's scary! This book that I thought would be more of an end of days scenario, was really the story of a great change in the world as we know it scenario. The devil returns, and the world is turned on its head. What's right is now wrong, and what was heretofore wrong is suddenly encouraged. The Christian resistance, though small in number, are dedicated to their cause, and add to the suspense that flows throughout the book. I had never given much of a thought to a world ruled by Satan, figuring (hopefully) that I would be gone by then. Mark Carver's story of the Appolyon, and its somewhat surprising implementation into our world kept me turning the pages long after I should have been asleep.
