I admit I got a wee bit lost at one point - having a brain that drains quickly certainly doesn't help - but it didn't take long to get back into the swing of things. What a fantastic start to a series, and I hope the rest is up to the same pedestal-height standard that has been set in this book.
This book was free as part of the author's BOGOF sale. This is an honest review and all opinions are my own.
Thy Kingdom Fall is a novel with hugely interesting concepts that deal with thought-provoking issues. It sets the scene in a Tek Age for the lead up to World War III on September 11, 2125, and although this outcome isn't addressed in Book 1 it is highly hinted at.
The novel almost splits into 2 parts running simultaneously, one dealing with politics and identifies a number of situations, which actually occur in the present day, and what subsequently happens when either no action or incorrect actions are taken. The second introduces the characters who will have an impact on the forthcoming global war.
The President, T. Wilson, is a formidable man, supported by many powerful individuals, who is obsessed with ending religion in order to protect America but he makes a number of enemies when he seeks to implement "Project Purify". The initial introduction of the "Bio Switch" is seen as the answer to a number of problems affecting the population but trouble starts when it becomes compulsory especially with non-pagans, also called Jew-Christians or Faithers (Non-Muslim).
Religion, seen as some as the root of all wars, is being denied to the Jew-Christians. The Jew-Christians is a term used to combine a large number of denominations, including all Jewish factions, Catholics, Protestants, Amish, Mennonites, Calvinists, Lutherans and Baptists etc. With Western Europe falling to the Muslims, the Decline of the Russian Bloc and the Destruction of Palestine Israel, America is ... to hold its own against the CHIN, Chinese-Indian Alliance and the Supreme Islamic Caliphate.Read more ›
Thank you to netgalley and the publisher for the review copy of this book.
Thy Kingdom Fall is the provocative, debut thriller of author Austin Dragon-a dramatic mix of politics, religion, and intrigue set over 75 years in the future.
Right. Difficult one for me this. Extremely well written with an intriguing premise, and the start of a new series, I believe that this is going to very much be what I call a "marmite" book. It has many positives and equally some negatives for me. As anyone that follows me knows, I dislike being about the downside so lets start with the great aspects of this novel..
Firstly characters..probably the best thing to be said for the book is this author knows how to create a character that you will either adore or loathe...and is pretty clear cut about who you SHOULD be loving or loathing (Kristiana being my favourite incidentally) with very little prevarication. And in the context of the story this works very well.
Secondly, the technical, or more "science fiction" aspects of the book are very well done. Certainly seeming realistic (everyone is connected to "the net" in one way or another!) it speaks to a very possible future..
The story moves along apace (some of the back and forth between time periods can be disconcerting but work fine once you are used to how it goes) and there are some twists and turns along the way to hold your interest.
For me though, the religious tone of the book was vaguely disturbing. SOME portions of the novel felt like one long sermon...on the rather shameless way we live our current lives and the possible consequences.Read more ›

The author jumps the timeline around a lot which makes the story hard to follow initially but stick with it, because when it comes together it's well worth the wait!Published on 22 Oct. 2013 by JamieH
From the first, I admit to trepidation about this book. A good premise, but then right at the beginning, the first hints of frankly scary religious undertones. Read morePublished on 1 Sept. 2013 by Greycat
