A Mighty Rolling Thunder
When the metaphysical takes on a very real aspect, two-thirds of the world’s population is wiped out. Those who remain find either their inner greatness or their darkest impulses brought uppermost, and in the resulting chaos, Livi finds herself facing off against an obsessed businessman possessed by the darkest side of humanity, intent on owning her, her art, and her soul. With her only back-up her snuggle-loving golden retriever, Beauty, Livi is lucky to find allies in the most unlikely places—and a previously unsuspected skill when it comes to defending herself with kitchenware.
A Mighty Rolling Thunder gives a unique look at one of the oldest stories of all through the lens of a masterfully-written fantasy plot. With overtones reminiscent of a zombie apocalypse, good and evil are unleashed, and civilisation begins to totter on its foundations. The characters are recognisable archetypes, familiar enough to draw the reader in, but deftly given their own individual traits and quirks to set them apart and bring them alive in the pages. The pacing is masterful, coloured with foreshadowing and spiked with violence that has real consequences, adding to the suspense without turning into a Quentin Tarantino set. I can truthfully say that author Kerry Alan Denney has created a book here that will keep you turning pages until way past your bedtime – entertaining, thought-provoking, and highly recommended.
