Theon E. Rex is no ordinary boy. Discovered as an infant in a symbol-riddled well near Manor Clos Lucé, Leonardo Da Vinci’s former residence, he soon manifests extraordinary powers ranging from the stunning to the devastating, attracting the attention of the Vatican and other powerful organizations bent on exploiting or destroying him. Terrified the secret behind his mysterious origins will reduce biblical doctrine to ashes and crush his empire, the Pope himself orders his death.
Even Satan has designs on Theon. Hell’s fury descends upon him as the Dragon Lord whisks the boy prodigy to his infernal realm, determined to weaponize him and bring destruction and desolation to the Kingdom of Heaven... and to Earth. Of all the echoes - restored human souls - roaming heaven and hell, Leonardo Da Vinci comes to Theon’s aid, helped by Satan’s crossbred daughter and other unlikely allies.
A frantic race ensues across hell and into heaven in hopes of finding a cure to Theon’s explosive curse. But a misguided God swears the boy will not cross heaven's borders. What they discover about his origins, no one - neither Da Vinci nor even God himself - could have imagined.

The boy who set fire to the bible
This was an amazingly complex book.A mother gives birth to a baby who dies.She then finds a baby in a well.He is different.Where did he come from?We go on a LONG journey to find out how this child is related to the biblical Jesus among others.The narrator,Charles Henderson Norman was good ,for the most part.His grating voices were supposed to be irritating,I suppose.“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

Turns the bible on its head
I was grew up Catholic and received all the sacraments, but lately due to personal tragedy, I’ve drifted from God. Because of this I thought I would be open-minded when it came to religion. And hence, it would be perfectly OK to listen to this book.
Boy was I was wrong. At first, I was ok with it. But as time went on I started squirming in my seat as I listened. This book turns the entire concept of God and Jesus on it’s head. If you are religious, this book is definitely not for you. It’s going to laugh in the face of everything you have been taught, believe, and have faith in.
If you aren’t religious, then you will have no problem with the subject of this book. Getting past THAT, there is a LOT in this book. It’s dense. It’s creative. And it’s campy. The author takes a LOT of leaps to connect dots that have heretofore never been connected before.
I have no complaints with the narrator. His comedic timing was spot on and his female voices were realistic. His unique voice, while older, seemed to suit the story just fine.
This audiobook was gifted to me by the narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.
