Standing tenuously on the side of hope amidst the encroaching apocalyptic doom is Dr. Paul Bradfield, a man conflicted between rational science and matters of faith regarding unexplained supernatural occurrences, and the horrifying deaths of several of his closest friends.
Only Jennifer Dowling, Bradfield’s true love, and Matt Larsen, his slovenly yet brilliant friend, recognize the unholy phenomenon which has fixated on, or perhaps emanates from, Father Joseph, Bradfield’s dearest friend of all.
What will come of humanity when the clock counts down? Can one man make the difference and stave off mankind's ultimate doom, at least for the time being?
All roads appear to lead to one inexorable horrific beginning of the end...that is...The Evilution.

Great narration, sub par story.
Having loved this authors Ian McDermott series, I was eager to read something else by him and started this when I got it! I mean, I'd read it on the cover alone because it's awesome!!! So this was..... weird. I found it confusing and quite long winded to be honest! When they went into the old style talking, it just felt so, so long and unnecessary!! My mind started wandering while listening and I always know that's the time to give up. I did manage to finish the whole book, but it was a massive chore. I'm not sure if I'll continue with the series.
S.W. Salzman did a great job with this. He was the only reason I kept going!! He is clear and concise and had plenty of tones and voices for the different characters.
I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts

Hey, wanna talk about end times? The Antichrist? Dark things growing in power? Then I'm all in. This stuff fascinates me. So, throw a book at me and watch me devour it intellectually within hours. So, this was a no-brainer for me to get.
Let me lay things out for you. I am an honest reviewer if nothing else. This book is part of a trilogy or a series, ans do does not conclude in a way most people like. It has an open ending, one that leads into the next book. Secondly, this book is a set-up or what I like to call a slow burn. It does not come at you hard and heavy, but instead creeps up on you. You get to know the characters, you get to see the threat, and you get to evaluate the chances they really have in stopping it. Don't expect Die Hard type action. In fact, the only way to have made this a fast paced thriller would have been to have it start with the characters ready to make their move, and that wouldn't work because you need to get to know the group. You need to empathize with them, and fear Cardinal Xzytun------to see HIS plans, too. Making this as breakneck thrille would have failed. Also, expect some badthink happening. What I mean to say is, there is some sexist and racist elements in the book, and in today's society some people may get offended by that, but seriously, you are reading about the antichrist! There will be some topics that you aren't comfortable with, but I know people who would be more upset by the racists aspects than they would if cannibalism or incest took place in the book.
My only complaint is that the book really isn't "dark". Sure the subject matter is grim, but I have seen dark, and this feels more like shadowed. I think Aslin could have taken this down a few more twisty roads than he did. That's all. The story is great, and the characters are believable, but it is not a black pit of hopelessness.
You really do care about the characters, their plight, and will wonder if they will be able to save the world. Cardinal Xzytun, prounounced Satan if you do it right, is more than sufficiently menacing and evil. So, we are good on the story/character quality.
Salzman does a fine job narrating; I liked his style. He kind of flowed with the story. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.
