Ans different continents and time periods The author seamlessly weaves an intricate plot that connects an array of fascinating characters that propel the momentum of this wonderfully ambitious narrativeAman S Ana. Mad Gods is a Christ vs antiChrist novel featuring some very dark and disturbing scenes blended seamlessly with some very loving and honest parenting by Kosta the man who steals the newborn antichrist and raises him to make his own decisionsThe evil of the dark church is portrayed through religious sacrifice homosexual sex torture and sickly death and in many cases betrayal by individuals thought to be of the Christian God s church The ability of the author to be so willing to attack the very foundations of the Catholic church and demonstrate how it rose to power on the backs of the repressed murdered and scammed is a work of pure courage When the novel places a Pope in power that is working for the Luciferians the case for corruption is complete and the argument is firmly made that religion is not the wholesome goodness that it professes to beThe most enjoyable of this novel s features for me personally was its exceptional historical background Immaculately researched and choreographed in terms of historical events this novel must fall at least in part under historical fiction The depth and breadth of the author s research of the church and its history as well as the past lives of the antichrist as written are very impressive and speak of many hours of meticulous learning This gives the novel such a deep historical impact and such a smooth allegorical association with our actual world that a reader may very well find themselves asking could this really be happeningLast but not least is the antichrist himself both in past lives and in the present day who somehow never manages to accept his role as the devourer of humanity Rather he always seems to find mentors teachers and reasons that allow him to be the best of humanity In the current incarnation of the antichrist Adam he is stolen from his home and the Luciferians who would raise him to do their bidding by a Greek gentleman named Kosta who finds him and rescues him and raises him with love and affection in a way that was never planned by Adam s father and his minions When push comes to shove Adam cannot be bought by the greed and lust that is said to move those of his kind and remains loyal to Kosta and his love and teachingsIf there is a singular flaw in the book it may simply be that I found the author s descriptions of the mood of a speaker often placed after the speaker had said their piece I kept wishing that it was moved to the front of the dialogue to set the mood first An almost negligible concern however that barely distracted from my enjoyment of this novelFinally the author leaves the ending open in such a way that we cannot be sure if over time the antichrist will not be finally swayed to take his mantle of power and so doom humanity An opening for the next round of talesThis reader gives Mad Gods Redux a full 5 out of 5 stars and recommends it to readers of historical fiction dark and occult readers horror readers and anyone who enjoys an epic story

Mad Gods Revelation Cancelled? Predatory Ethics #1

The Antichrist lives He is wanted dead or alive by Satanists the Catholic Church and the Dark NobilityKostadino must save him or let the world turn into hell on earthWhat I liked about Mad Gods was that the autho. Athanasios takes a lot of risks in the construction of Mad Gods some of those risks pan out beautifully and some sort of fizzle especially in the second half Mad Gods is a synthesis of cult favorites seamlessly invoking and intertwining Dan Brown Stephen King and William Blatty along with a ridiculously prolific knowledge of American popular culture from the 1960s and just about every conspiracy theory with any staying power from the time of the Crusades to the present The story follows the prophesied birth of the anti Christ in the form of a small child named Adam in Argentina and the web of individuals from shadowy Knights Templar to zealous Luciferians in their attempts to capture the child and use him for their purposes Guarding the child is a relic of the past Kostadino Paleologos a reluctant hero and a descendent of the rulers of ancient Constantinople before its fall into Muslim hands Mad Gods encompasses centuries of history and is a clever and plausible revision to commonly accepted Church history in the West Along the way there s magic lost tomes and dusty libraries as well as action packed bursts of good versus evil that put many action writers to shame Indulgent and overly explicatory Mad Gods ultimately spends too much time forcibly connecting the dots between disparate historical events and trying far too hard to make everything fit into the narrative from the Kennedy assassination to the popular false pope conspiracies of John VI The novel begins as a historical thriller and the first half is a taut and purposeful page turner with interesting mysteries and sound historical contextualization Indiana Jones meets Robert Langdon in a near Eastern hero who is enigmatic and complicated Kostadino is chased by Vatican assassins and directed by ghosts to ancient libraries that reveal lost aspects of history that are thought provoking and ripe for literary exploitation The emphasis on the fall of Constantinople and the Fourth Crusade was especially appealing to me as a historian who wrote several papers on the subject I was pleased by the level of scholarship and the depth of the narrative Herein lies the weakness of Mad Gods however In the first half Athanasios manages the delicate balance between driving the plot forward and back building with the explication serving to give depth to the action and his main character In the second half the balance is lost There are simply too many plot lines to follow each with their own massive depth of historical context to delve into which simply distracts from the present plot The tension of the deadly game of hide and seek Kosta and Adam are playing with the various forces looking for them is lost between chapters of explication and backgrounding for characters who in the end didn t really matter all that much and ended up being replaced by a new shadow organization in the Black Nobility who become the driving force of much of the plot only in the last uarter of the book Don t get me wrong the sudden puppet master twist can work well in books of this kind but in this case the many factions are so sub factionalized you risk losing the reader and the labyrinthine connections and double crosses When the narrative finally does return to Adam and Kosta it feels like it s done mostly out of a sense of duty or an afterthought catching the reader up to events that have been happening with this central pair of characters while the narrative was busy focused on developing conspiracy theories and in those intervals the author seems to be stuck on a stroll down memory lane with accountings of whatever music or movies happened to come out in that year taking up 80% of the narrative on this much neglected track Mad Gods does present several very compelling and original ideas and unlike most works in the genre has some pretty darn amazing prose to back it up Athanasios paints beautiful pictures develops interesting characters and makes obliue historical references interesting and entertaining but there s just too much there for one book to stay focused and on point There s tremendous potential here and Athanasios is definitely someone to watch for in the future I have the feeling a good editor could get the second half to focus as well as the first which would make for a page turning but shorter first volume Some of the tangential stories are interesting in their own right but perhaps could be part of a companion volume of short stories that fill in gaps in the main narrative for die hard fans who want to know all the intricacies worked out in the author s mind
