However, the ending was very anticlimatic. Maybe the author ran out of steam towards the end. Nevertheless an interesting book to read for many individuals (Christians and non-Christians alike) who may also be students of Eschatology (the study of end-times theology).
This is a fascinating book written by a very talented author. I think I would categorize it as Science Fiction rather than Horror. What a write! The plot was spellbinding. Mr. Monteleone is a master at dramatizing, setting a mood, building tension, suspense and imagery. The scene in the desert was mindboggling! The mugging scene in which he killed the robber, seared the consciousness.
There were, for me, troubling conflicts in the plot. Peter, cloned from the blood of Christ, was supposedly turning into a monster. Yet, he really had done nothing wrong. Even when Dan died, Peter was not in control of the electric bolt that gave Dan a heart attack - plus Dan was attacking him as Peter warned him to stay back.
Some were saying he had a darkness within him and he was evil. Well, the democrats have been saying that about the republicans for years (and vice versa,) and nobody even pays attention to them.
Was he Christ? In my point of view, if you make a clone of a living entity, that's all it is - a replica. From then on it becomes a question, do we have free will or are we predetermined by fate. Regardless of what you believe, the book makes for fascinating reading.
It's all exactly as contrived as it sounds, but Mr. Monteleone has fun with his premise. My main objection is that he's entirely too cynical and the portraits of religion and the religious border on bigotry. But taken on its own terms, its fairly entertaining.
