I was totally enthralled. I have read many books on the Templars, the Vatican and the Illumaniti, and this is one of the best. Period. Elliot Malach
Constantine Paleologos does things grudgingly. As a descendant of Byzantine royalty he dutifully returns to Istanbul, the city his family lost centuries before. He is then set on a life-altering course against Satanists, Templars and Dark Nobility to kidnap the Antichrist. Each faction wants to raise the Beast but only Constantine wants to give him the freedom to choose his own destiny.
Mad Gods is the most high-stakes "nature vs nurture" experiment in history. An occult thriller of one man against the End of the World.

Athanasios weaves a great sense of historical reality within a tense quick rambling story close enough to reality to be chilling. Vincent R. Colucci
Think 300 with some Clive Barker and a little bit of the Exorcist thrown in for good measure. The plot will drive you to never stop reading and will have you move to the next page.Albert Robins III
Athanasios seamlessly weaves as intricate plot that connects an array of fascinating characters that propel the momentum of this wonderfully ambitious narrative. Aman S Anand
About the Author
In third person to add a note of deluded self importance. Athanasios has been interested in religion & faith since childhood. This led to studying a bewildering variety of beliefs from pagan, wicca, judaism, christianity, islam, to hindu, buddhism, shinto, luciferianism & much more. The interest made its own momentum & brought Mad Gods & now its sequel Commitment. Other interests include most entertainment, from film, to television & books. He won't try video games for the same reason he doesn't keep his favourite booze in the house; he would do nothing else. There was a short time he was into World of Warcraft but that became the obsession he knew it would be. He left it for a deeper & more engrossing one: Predatory Ethics. http://predatoryethics.com Longtime work in the graphics field has given Athanasios the facility to do his own covers. He has created his own covers and also creates custom work for other indie authors @: www.mad-gods.com/CoverHIRE
