Synopsis: How can you possibly prepare for the end of the world? The end of everything? Armageddon is right around the corner, and there’s no guarantee that Heaven’s going to be the victor. Hell is real, it’s clawing at the edges of the Pit, and its demonically possessed servants are right now gathering powerful artifacts as weapons of war. The End Times are coming. Are you ready?
Hector Shaw isn’t. A former soldier suffering from PTSD, he’s been recruited to work for a clandestine security company under strange circumstances. What do they really want him for? Siobhan Dempsey isn’t, either. She’s only just gotten her life together when she finds that she can do magick. Real magick. Why now, and why her?
Connecting multiple characters and building to a shattering climax, this is the first novel in a trilogy focusing on themes of supernatural horror, western occultism, and Biblical apocalypse.
Review: THE BLESSED MAN AND THE WITCH is an end-of-days thriller told in multiple points-of-view. It’s sometimes hard to get the whole picture as we are jumped from character to character abruptly, which is perhaps the point. The appearance of The Blessed Man has triggered something huge – people are being born with prophetic abilities and the ability to perform real magick. Anyone The Blessed Man has come in contact with has their lives forever changed. His appearance has also triggered the beginning of the apocalypse and two opposing factions are doing their best to push the world where they want it to go. There are a lot of characters to keep track of, as well as what is going on with each of them. THE BLESSED MAN AND THE WITCH is not for the faint of heart as there is strong language and graphic scenes. There is a lot of action and overall the plot was good, I just felt there was so much going on it appeared to detract from the message of the story. As the first in a trilogy, THE BLESSED MAN AND THE WITCH certainly raises readers’ expectations for the next two books!
