Book Review of Daimones by Massimo Marino

Dan Amenta woke up one morning to discover the world had changed...the Apocalypse had arrived.

Death, destruction, and disaster were wreaking havoc across the globe. Yet Dan and his family remained untouched and he sensed some sort of supernatural power had left them the only three people alive on Earth. They were not.

The efforts to survive and find others brought Dan to discover the disturbing truth about the human extermination. He met Laura, who brought revelations about the catastrophe, and her presence - a young, sexy, disruptive girl - raised questions about what was moral and ethical in the new reality. Other survivors reported what they had seen, forcing Dan to seek explanations from his own past.

Ancient hallucinations strike Dan with the force of a sledgehammer and bring him face-to-face with his new role in a scenario with roots millions-of-years old. Planet Earth was now in the hands of an older power but not the one Dan had ever envisioned.

"Even with the best of intentions, cruelty is just around the corner."

My Review:

*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review*

I flew through this book! The action started very quickly and from that point on things progressed nicely. I liked the moral dilemmas Dan had to go through and when the reason for all the destruction is given, it is quite interesting indeed! 

As a huge fan of science fiction I feel this book is a must read for all who claim to be fans of that genre. It has a great plot and premise that push the story in ways that just take a normal "end of the world as we know it" story to a new level. 

Dan is a great character to follow as he seems like a typical man, who has a family and just wants them to be safe. I found myself wanting to know more about him and worried for him when danger seemed near. He is a great well developed character to follow in these novels.
