Publisher's Summary

An explosive tale of spiritual warfare and the origin story of the most controversial book of the Bible: Revelation. Book one in the shocking controversial series Chronicles of the Apocalypse.
Ancient Rome, A.D. 64. Alexander, a young Jewish doctor, is torn between his loyal Roman citizenship and his passionate Jewish faith. As a personal physician to Roman Prefect Severus, he is ushered into the circle of the evil emperor Nero Caesar, a tyrannical beast with diabolical plans of Christian genocide.
Nero blames the Great Fire of Rome on the Christians, which leads to the horrific persecution of the early church including the martyrdom of the apostles Peter and Paul. Alexander finds himself in the middle of this madness, trying to stay alive and protect the Jews from the emperor's paranoia.
Nero discovers that an unknown apostle has written a secret apocalypse scroll rumored to prophesy the destruction of Rome and the end of the world. So he orders Severus and Alexander to find the author, destroy all copies of his scroll and kill him.
But Severus's servant, a bold Christian woman named Cassandra, holds a dark secret that opens the door to a world of spiritual warfare they're not ready to face. It will lead them directly to the true meaning of the apocalypse, the book of Revelation, and it will change their lives forever.

Not reflective of previous books

First, let me say that I love this author, have re-read most of his books and anxiously await his new releases.

This book was a disappointment all the way up until the last 3 hours. Everything before that was long, boring, and easily forgotten.

I hope the next installment is better!

Great to listen to, but print version is footnoted

Would you consider the audio edition of Tyrant: Rise of the Beast to be better than the print version?

Godawa is great to listen to, but he says this book is heavily footnoted which is not part of the audible version

It was alright

I like the story line. However I would have preferred a more conclusive ending. It left me hanging.
