about

Set in the modern era, an aged Yeshua ha-Nostri (Jesus) journeys to a surreal ‘afterworld’ called Timorous to confront Lucifer, whom he suspects of closing the gates to Heaven; a pre-cursor to war. On Yeshua’s arrival in Timorous, he encounters Camille, whose soul has materialized there as her body lies suspended between life and death in a London hospital bed. Their journey takes them from the forlorn Beaches of the Condemned, across the vile Sea of Diminishment to the notorious Halls of Punishment, where every soul is purified before it can enter Heaven. Yeshua’s belief in the veneration of Man is severely tested along the way as he and Camille travel through nightmarish landscapes and interact with mixed-breed monsters and other unworldly creatures. Flashbacks to Yeshua’s early years provide an illuminating account of the key events in his life, including a worsening relationship with his brother James which eventually leads to tragedy. Meanwhile, Lucifer deliberates on the price he is paying for his commitment to a non-interference pact he has made with God, concerning Man’s free will. Lucifer perceives Man as immoral and dangerous to his planet, and possibly to the Heavens, and in need of eradication; a view not shared by ha-Nostri. Unknown to Lucifer, his vengeful concubine and femme fatale, Lilith, plots a rebellion against him, and ultimately intends to invade the Heavens with Lucifer’s armies, whose generals have fallen under her charms. Back in the hospital, Camille’s ex-boyfriend Max, is at her bedside protecting her from ‘phantom’ attacks on her person, while Camille’s spiteful mother points an accusatory finger at him. In the Megiddo series, the author blends high fantasy with biblical fiction, and provides an unrestrained and imaginative tale, both alarming and uplifting at the same time, which questions the wisdom of Man's free will and introduces some new perspectives on the afterlife
