To give you some sort of literary perspective, Apocalypse Rising is what you get when The Prophecy movies meet Terry Brook’s Word & Void series and stays firmly grounded in current times. Eric adds just enough of a slant on the traditional aspects of the elements he manipulates to keep the whole story from tumbling into a void of clichés.
It’s a short novel that’s well worth a read. I want to say more about it but fear any lengthy analysis may throw out spoilers that will ruin it for you.
