I received this book free in exchange of an honest review. Librarything.com is a great way to be introduced to new talent.
And Krisch has talent! Once the characters were introduced, the action took off in such a run-away shock-fest. There are doomsday ideas and then there are the Arkadium, who have been planning for the end of civilization. Ultimately to become one with nature or some such rational.
So for all the years of planning and their explosive burst of their own come to Jesus society, they forgot to plan on the evil Power can generate so quickly and fundamentally to the deepest new religious core.
Strong characters, fast action, surprises. Whats not to like? Oh.... I guess the wait for the NEXT installment, is all.
