My Review

I love apocalyptic stories. Especially ones with a paranormal or supernatural cause. Kathryn gives us the biblical war of angels and demons.

Unaware that her “curse,” what she calls her ability to see when a person is going to die or if something evil hides behind a human facade, will play a large part in the war to come, Cassandra just tries to get through her days making a living playing gigs with her brother and taking care of her elderly aunt and uncle.

Cassandra and her brother, Johnny, couldn’t be more different. She’s responsible, faces difficulties head on and takes care of business. Johnny just wants to play music and live a carefree, no worries life. But they have a strong bond and pull together as their life takes a turn for the dark side.

It’s come. The last days for humanity. They’d all heard about it in one form or another, the end of days. Demons and angels are warring, humans are on the list for extinction, and the fight to save souls becomes the mission for Cassandra, her family, and friends.

Reading so many books on this scenario and watching many more movies, you’d think it would become mundane, the plot tired. Not so with Kathryn’s creative mind.

The author gives you some great characters. Packing them all into a motor home and setting them off to unknown destinations with demonic creatures on the trail made this a real page turner. You never knew who would survive, who they would save, and what they’d be fighting.

I felt like I was on the road with them. Planning out every detail of what they’d need, down to how much toilet paper they could pack in the RV. The story isn’t bogged down by these little things. Instead, it’s richer, more believable, not glossed over.

There’s a good mix of characters and what role they play in each others survival. A circus clown, a tarot reader, a musician, an elderly couple, Cassandra, Manessah, an angel, and Rayner, a very confused demon.

Those like Cassandra, the chosen, will be able to see the demons they are fighting, while others will have to put aside their disbelief and fight blindly. Having a guardian angel to guide them gives them an edge, while Rayner, the demon, confuses them.

Rayner is an ancient, powerful demon who has a crush on Cassandra. He should be trying to kill her. Instead, he helps the group, warns them of coming attacks, and actually helps in their battles. Still, he’s a demon, and Cassandra doesn’t trust him. And he’s getting on her nerves.

I can’t think of a better group of people to go through the end of days with.

Having read many of Kathryn’s books, I had no doubt she’d blow me away again. Highly recommend this to all who have a sense of adventure and enjoy end of the world situations with authentic characters.

Synopsis

The world has always been divided into good and evil…and some humans are called to fight for one or the other. If you’re called…would you fight? Cassandra Graystone and others like her are born to battle the proliferating demons as the end-of-days approach. She is fated to receive the sword of the angels, warrior-beings who will stand beside her as she battles the demons for herself, her family, friends, and for the last remnants of humanity–for afterwards those remaining will have one last chance to save their souls. They must fight and they must win. Since she was a child she knows and sees things other people don’t…when someone will die or when a demon lurks beneath a human skin. She sees them. Yet she craves a normal life singing out with her musician brother, Johnny, and caring for her elderly aunt and uncle; to be with her friends, Sarah, a psychic, and Walter, a carnival clown. But when Sarah sees apocalyptic events in Cassandra’s tarot cards and demons are everywhere, Cassandra fears she’s either going insane or something terrifying is truly happening in the world. Rayner, an ancient blood demon is obsessed with her. Never having felt pity or affection for a human before he believes he loves her. The demon realm gathers for the final confrontation, Rayner warns. The apocalypse comes. You and your friends must prepare. Cassandra flees that knowledge until an angelic being, Manasseh, tells her: Your powers will grow. Fight for humanity’s survival after the first wave is taken and seek out others like you. Persuade them to join the battle. Only these chosen can see and challenge the demons until the end when all eyes will be able to see them. She doesn’t want her life to change, be anyone’s protector, doesn’t want to be a nomad who battles demons…until catastrophic events force her to and she can no longer deny her destiny. She and her friends must take to the road; they must fight…or see the remnants of humanity consumed in flames.

About Kathryn Meyer Griffithlook for all my NEW covers! on my older books.

Since childhood I’ve been an artist and worked as a graphic designer in the corporate world and for newspapers for twenty-three years before I quit to write full time. But I’d already begun writing novels at 21, over forty-four years ago now, and have had twenty-three (ten romantic horror, two horror novels, two romantic SF horror, one romantic suspense, one romantic time travel, one historical romance, two thrillers, and four murder mysteries) previous novels, two novellas and twelve short stories published from Zebra Books, Leisure Books, Avalon Books, The Wild Rose Press, Damnation Books/Eternal Press; and I’ve self-published my last ten novels with Amazon Kindle Direct and my Dinosaur Lake novels and Spookie Town Mysteries (Scraps of Paper, All Things Slip Away and Ghosts Beneath Us) are my best-sellers.

I’ve been married to Russell for thirty-seven years; have a son and two grandchildren and I live in a small quaint town in Illinois, which is right across the JB Bridge from St. Louis, Mo. We have a quirky cat, Sasha, and the three of us live happily in an old house in the heart of town. Though I’ve been an artist, and a folk/classic rock singer in my youth with my brother Jim, writing has always been my greatest passion, my butterfly stage, and I’ll probably write stories until the day I die…or until my memory goes.

    My family for sure! ALL of my family, kids, grandkids, siblings, their families, parents…we will party to the end, any time spent with them is a party…I can even see one of by brothers, doing a countdown…yes, a family with attitude!! Fabulous review! I see another book that I NEED!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I feel the same way! I’d want everyone I care about together with me. Attitude would be good and my family has lots of it. LOL

  7. Megan says:

    This is great. I love audio books. Especially ones including angels and the apocalypse! I’d definitely want my family with me and I’d want my dog. He’s family! Why would I leave him behind? I totally love my dog as much as my immediate family and more than some of my extended family so definitely my dog! MsA3179 @ aol

    • Megan
      Your dog, huh? I’d take my cat, Sasha. My husband and I plan on traveling this spring in a camper (my husband retired this year…yeah!) and we’re racking our brains trying to figure out how to take our indoor/outdoor cat with us. That’s going to be fun as our cat loves being outside and of course we won’t be able to let him out on the road.Hmmm.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      Yeah, someone besides me thought of their dog or other four legged family member!

  8. Sounds like a fun read. Picking one person is difficult, but it would be my life partner. Definitely.

  9. Mai Tran says:

    Not just the end of days, it’s mom and my dog I want to be with every day.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      Me too Mai! My mom has been here for the whole summer and we are best friends. It will be so hard when she goes back home. But she’ll be back in the spring. We talk everyday when she’s not here. And my dog, Quigley, he’s my pal and shadow.

  10. Melissa Rowles says:

    I would want my husband with me, he is my partner in everything and if I don’t know what to do he does.

  11. I would have my husband at my side. I always feel safe with him around.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I’m glad you have a husband you can depend on. I’d have to depend on whoever was nearby when it happened.

  12. Anastacia says:

    I should say hubby but I’ll pick my dad as he can kick butt! Anastaciaknits@gmail dot com
