Apocalypse (Rapture Trilogy #1)
The seven years of the Tribulation are almost over. The Apocalypse - the final battle between good and evil - is almost upon us and with it, the end of the world as we know it.
For the last seven years, the half-demon Samael has battled his inner demons as well as the very real demons that inhabit the desolate, ash-shrouded Earth. Betrayed by Heaven and Hell, cursed by the surviving humans that he strives to protect, separated from all those he loves – Sam’s existence is filled with death and despair.
Now he must make a choice. Continue to fight for those he swore to protect or leave them to their fate and join his father in Hell. The Apocalypse is coming and it isn’t going to wait for Sam to make up his mind.
"I was looking forward to the ending at the same time I was wishing it wouldn't come, and one of my pet peeves are endings that are either too quick, or leave questions unanswered, but in Apocalypse there is a perfect balance of build up and climax, followed by an ending that fit completely with the feel of the series."
"The Rapture trilogy holds together really well. The world is built on biblical mythology and stays faithful to it throughout all three books, while weaving in its own unique legend. The characters grow, but remain true to their origins. The promise of the first book is realised in the last. Sam’s part in the war is creative in a way that I wasn’t expecting; his mother is brought into the novel finally and more of the ideas of Heaven and Hell are explored."
