When Professor Harrison Standish, a bookish young archeologist inadvertently stumbles upon an ancient burial chamber in Egypt, he is baffled to find symbolism inside that would appear to date from two different historical periods, thousands of years apart. Suspecting the tomb had been tampered with at some point in the distant past, Professor Standish soon discovers the skeletons of ten half-human/half-canine creatures lying in a far corner of the chamber and his initial bafflement now turns to shock. What kind of ancient madman would be conducting such a horrific experiment?
Riveting, compelling and filled with page after page of adventure, chaos and profound action. With each page turned there’s a new road that leads you to another grave journey. In truth, the read will have your heart pounding in anticipation from beginning to end.Me, the reviewer: I like a book where you don’t guess the end. There’s nothing worse than knowing what’s going to happen next. Personally, I have never felt obligated to finish a book that I didn’t like. In good conscience, I lay the book down in a hurry and move to something more inviting.
Now Purgatory Origins: Powers of Darkness is one of those books that you spend every spare moment reading. I even found myself reading in the morning before heading to work and as soon as I got home. I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next. But when I was done, I was saddened by the fact that there were no more enthralling pages to turn. In effect, I cannot wait to read the next Purgatory series. Wow, what a read!
The plot is incredibly allusive and the characters very well formed. Readers will be in a constant state of wondering what lies ahead. Moreover, each character doesn’t just have a name. In fact, as you read you get to know all main characters personally. It’s like you’ve known everyone for years.
And if you like history, you got it. Or real life sci-fi demons, well I won’t spoil the plot. You’ll find archeological digs in Egypt that find half creature and half human skeletons. And in the mountains outside of Dubois Wyoming you have numerous missing people and a Hannibal Lector type character that helps the FBI with their investigation. Hum, I wonder what lies creeping in the woods.
Oh, and let’s not forget to mention purgatory. This book will leave you wondering about the true history of purgatory and its origin. It’s a real life purgatory situation! A Must Read!
