I’m hosting a guest post today for the book tour for fantasy novel “The One Path”. The author talks about The God Chronicles in his guest post, and about melding fantasy and religion.
The God Chronicles
My concept was to create a melding of fantasy and religion. I have always enjoyed movies such as The Seventh Sign an apocalyptic thriller, Constantine starring Keanu Reeves, The Omen directed by Richard Donner, and who could forget The Ten Commandments by Cecil B DeMille. I wanted to show the epic struggle between good and evil in a book. In all the stories I could remember no one had ever described how Lucifer and one third of the angels went to war with God and got kicked out of heaven.
In book one of the God Chronicles, called The Great Angel War, God has seen enough. He knows the end times will soon start. He sends an Archangel named Raphael to the Earth to identify and train his last prophet. Raphael tells Thomas Mumin, an average, everyday American of Middle Eastern descent, that he is God’s Last Prophet. Thomas thinks that God has made a mistake. Thomas does not even practice a religion. Raphael winds up telling Thomas the story of how Lucifer and his army of angels went to war with God. What Thomas doesn’t realize is that Raphael is actually preparing Thomas for his battles with Lucifer and the Fallen angels and the readers get to see how Lucifer got kicked out of heaven with his followers.
In book two, The One Path, I get more into the fantasy and horror. Thomas decides the best way to stop Lucifer from starting Armageddon is by stopping the birth of the Antichrist. Thomas teams up with new friends and chases Lucifer across Europe. Lucifer abducts a young girl to mother the Antichrist and the race is on. Thomas fights with demons, thugs and even has words with Lucifer in his demon form. A man cannot expect to fight Lucifer and demons without some outside help, so God gives Thomas some powers to help even the score. In the mean time, man continues to move closer to Armageddon. Book two has a prologue so that readers could start with the second book and still understand the story.
In book three there will be a combination of Sci-fi, horror, fantasy, and religion as the good men/women and angels prepare to fight evil men/women and demons. As in book one you will see some strange mutations created by Lucifer to use against God’s angels.
About The Book
Author: Larry S. Gerovac
Lucifer asked the Gypsies, “What is the punishment for killing a Dark Warrior?” There was absolute silence. All the Gypsies were in fear for their lives. They did not want to draw the attention of this powerful demon.
Jal, seeing an opportunity for himself yelled, “Life for life.” Lucifer watched as Rayus tried to warn his dad by tugging on his arm.
That evil grin appeared on Lucifer’s face once again as he said, “Jal, was that you?”
Seizing his opportunity he said, “Yes, my Lord Lucifer.”
In this second book of the God Chronicle trilogy, Thomas, God’s Last Prophet, realizes that the only way to beat Lucifer, and prevent Armageddon is by stopping the birth of the Antichrist. In his efforts to find Lucifer, Thomas gets bonked on the head by the Pope using a religious artifact, gets beat up by Gypsies, and almost killed by demons. Eventually, Thomas teams up with a stuttering genius that is possessed by a fallen angel. The unlikely threesome seems to click on all cylinders as they work together and chase Lucifer through Europe. Will collaborating with a fallen angel prove to be a bad choice?
