Hellish Book One
Every thirty seconds someone is pushed to the brink of suicide. Every twelve minutes one of these desperate individuals takes their own life. Mental illness, drug abuse, and tragic events all contribute to an ever-growing number of people who can no longer endure this world. But some reach this point through insidious manipulation by a Luciferian force from beyond—a malevolent entity bent on ending humanity as we know it.
Michael is mankind's only hope. Haunted by relentless nightmares that threaten his sanity, he succumbs to the darkness by way of drugs and needles—reaching depths most would never imagine. Until one day, at his lowest moment, Michael faces Belial The Fallen—the embodiment of evil in the realm of man. He discovers he has been chosen to be the champion against the beast and must summon the strength within himself to fight back or else resign himself to the destruction of all he holds dear.
Jacob’s car was a prison of agony. Every station he switched to was a cruel reminder of his shattered love. The songs that once made him smile now stabbed him in the chest. He desperately hit the button, searching for an escape from the nightmare. At last, he found a metal station and turned up the volume to the max. He let the furious music fill his ears, hoping to silence the screams of his heart.
His foot became heavy as he pressed on the accelerator with all his might. He was driving parallel to the large river that ran through the center of the city. He knew immediately what he needed to do. The muscles in Jacob’s arms tightened as he braced himself in his seat, and when the road turned sharply to his left, he simply continued straight.
I just finished this book & I really loved it. The author has a way of making the characters come to life and once I started it, I couldn’t put it down. Small warning: this story is not for the weak, there are a lot of triggers and heartbreaking situations that left me reeling. I’ll definitely be getting the next book.
