Lex Allen is the author of the Imagine Trilogy, which includes the speculative science fiction thrillers No Heaven, No Hell and No Religion.
A Texas expatriate, Lex settled in Germany after long stints with the U.S. Army and civil service with the U.S. Department of Defense. He began his third career - full time author - in 2012 and has published two novels and a short story anthology under the pseudonym, Alex Eldrich.
A semi-professional musician from the early 1980's through the present, Lex wrote, recorded and published fourteen songs with MCP Records in Austria, that led to accolades from the European Country Music Association as "Best Band and Best Album" in 1997. He currently performs with an acoustic trio at clubs and private parties in Germany. His all-time, favorite musician? John Lennon.
Raised in a Southern Baptist home, Lex quickly became disenfranchised with organized religion. He studied Buddhism and learned the concepts of spiritualism. Over the past several years, he has developed a solid, layman's understanding of quantum physics theories, particularly the string, entanglement and multiverse theories.
Combining religion and spirituality with science hypothesis and conjecture (as well as a large dose of artistic license), Lex formed the foundation for the Imagine Trilogy... and works that are planned beyond the trilogy.
More than ten years of reading and research into these subjects, and the history of monotheistic religions and mythology, provided the foundation for many of the concepts found in the Imagine Trilogy.
Lex is currently working on his third novel, No Religion.
on Dec. 07, 2013 :
No Hell is the second book in the Imagine Trilogy by Lex Allen. It was every bit as engrossing as No Heaven, the first in this series. Though not as impactful as the first book, the story was every bit as interesting as the first.
Since I had read the first book, I already knew the characters, so it was easy to pick up where I had left off and follow along as they got into one scrape after another.
Still persued by the CIA and FBI- as well as one who would be the equivalent to the Antiichrist, they try and stay one step ahead of them all as they help Eloah (Jesus) complete his mission on earth.
I was really grateful that the author did not leave this book hanging as so many series writers do. He closed the book at the perfect spot, and I won't have to spend the next few months until the final book comes out in constant wonder about what will happen next. I'm content, for now.
Mr. Allen is a superb writer, and fantastic weaver of fiction. He kept track of all the characters and their stories so that none fell off into oblivion. Personally, I look forward to seeing other books- and subjects, from him in the future.
I recommend this series, but if you haven't read No Heaven, yet, you must do that first. Both books tie in together perfectly, and you'll miss so much if you start with this one first.
