THE TIME OF THE EVIL ONE IS NIGH...
on 23 August 2010
Jim Stevens is a struggling writer, who is married to his high school sweetheart, Carol, a social worker. Jim is an orphan, having been adopted by Jonah and Emma Stevens when he was little more than an infant. As luck would have it, Carol is an orphan, too, having lost her parents in a head on collision with a semi on the Long Island Expressway, when she was in high school.
After a fruitless search for his biological parents, Jim gets some unexpected correspondence from a law firm, advising him that he is a named beneficiary in the will of a wealthy Nobel Prize winning geneticist. Jim is flabbergasted, when he discovers that his legacy to him is in the neighborhood of eight million dollars. Now that is definitely news, but when he discovers that he is nothing more than a clone of his benefactor, his world begins to come apart.
What happens to Jim and Carol as a result of this revelation is not what either of them ever envisioned. Apocalyptic signs are everywhere. Something evil is underfoot and struggling to make itself manifest. The Chosen are being called upon to do battle, as the time of the evil One is nigh.
While I am a fan of this author, this is not one of his best works. It is simply pretty standard fare with some interesting moments. Fans of the author will get a modicum of enjoyment from this book, as will fans of the supernatural thriller genre.
