My first thought was “o my God, it’s a horror book”, but isn’t just Taylor (main character) had a bad dream…This book is a tale of one evolution, an evolution of not human beings, and an evolution of angels.
In this book is a fantastic story how is generated special species (The Beings):
“In 1846 a young men Clifford hiking in Amazon jungle was attacked by one black snake. Clifford was mutated in some being. Since that day started generations of angels, demons and other creatures.”
Gabriel’s (interesting name) actions could change the course of history
forever. Gabriel is an angel and he is in a college when is involve with other college students like an ordinary boy. When Gabriel and Taylor meet it’s not by accident. Taylor notices his strange glow over his body as no one else did.
Taylor is a college student. She is a girl who don’t like to pretend and want to be “Just-a –Taylor”, don’t wore a make up and she isn’t a fashion girl. Taylor have a nightmares every night when she closing her eyes.
Sam is a Taylor‘s best friend. She is an opposite of Taylor. She is a cheerleader and she is that kind of girl who breaks every boy heart and girl in every boy dreams.
Sam likes to makes friends. She is found a Marla, a girl in next door.
There is interesting mixture of characters and there relations.
As classical philologist I’m impressed by author’s knowledge in classics, especially in Greek mythology. He uses a geek mythology name for example: Dionysius and uses a Latin phrase Seize the day (Carpe diem).
Reading this book it was like a watching movie. I hardly wait two other books from these trilogy.
“New Death and the others” is collection of 44 short stories and 19 poems. The stories are fictional with different topics which vitiated from modern to mythical and folkloric.
I think that all stories contain hidden message or they symbolize something. All that stories have unhidden sarcasm.
Some of the stories are funny and make me laugh like ”A Date with Destiny” it is about one man who has date with Destiny through meetallelgoricfigures.com (interesting name for site and also symbolic),but Ambition was to smart and used the pictures from Destiny and presented herself like Destiny.
Some of the stories made me think deeply and I’d agree with the point of the author, like “The God of the Poor” it’s about how Death became responsible and ruler to Fame and Fortune.
From the poems I like “The Moon Sailed Sadly Through the Sky”.
