Pub date: May 7, 2009
Zach Richardson
Summary: Chronicles of the Apocalypse is a six part urban fantasy tale of how a handful of individuals from radically different backgrounds must band together and spearhead humanity's fight to survive when our world is invaded by the legions of Hell. Part 1, Revenge, Everything is Nothing introduces the first of these individuals; a 36 year old man named Jin Sakai. A man responsible for the deaths of his wife and two children. When an attempt is made on his own life, Jin takes up his sword and sets out on a furious and bloody quest for revenge, never knowing that he is merely one player in a much larger game...

Krystal at Live to read has said: This book is packed with action, the action is constant and the reader will move from one intense scene to the next.  The author writes as if he himself had the same or similar experiences with these fight scenes as Jin.  Jin is an intriguing, complex character.  The reader may have a hard time connecting to him at first, he can be standoffish.  The other secondary characters vary from interesting to meet to despicable.  The reader will have fun wading through this book.  This book is recommended to young adults/adults who love a good action book.
