Synopsis

An apocalypse threatens human kind. A highly infectious, lethal, genetic, virus is detected that attacks mankind and mammals. The Government must act, and whilst the authorities struggle to find a cure, they have to plan for the worst. As the disease spreads it is not clear how many will, or will not, survive, nor what the survivors will have to do to live. They will have to cope with their grief and loneliness before they can attempt to rebuild society. They will need to find water, food, shelter, and power and then face the other threats to their survival. If they survive, there may be hope for human kind. If they survive…



This is not horror genre and there are no zombies, and no asteroids, so if you prefer these types of post apocalyptic scenarios, look elsewhere. This is a story about surviving.



WARNING: This book contains violence, death and some sexual scenes that some readers may find disturbing.

Synopsis

An Awesome Indies Approved novel - your guarantee of quality writing.

Book 1 of the Realm of Dica series.

An epic mystery set within the exquisitely realised ‘created-world’ realm of Dica. At its heart is a story spanning the millennia – from ancient myth and legend to the realm’s turbulent present – all seen through the intimate vision of its idiosyncratic characters. These are folk who’ll become as real to you as friends or family, and whose revealing and somehow contemporary story will stay with you for ever more.
This is the kind of fantasy you might have expected to have come from the pen of Mervyn Peake, peopled with fully fleshed out characters reminiscent of those so joyously created by Terry Pratchett. The story at times, though, may seem to owe more to CS Lewis as it weaves its way through a rich, deep and multi-threaded tapestry of a plot that would have pleased the science fiction master Olaf Stapledon. And of course, there’s one character who mustn’t be overlooked, and that’s Dica itself – so real, immediate and all-embracing that you could be forgiven for thinking it had sprung from JRR Tolkien’s own hand.
Don’t be misled, though, for this series is entirely Clive S. Johnson – the author, the poet, the artist. Unique, inventive, idiosyncratic and thought provoking, this series will push you away from the shores of the everyday and into a delightful voyage of discovery. You will find wonder, surprise, dry humour and some gritty truths as you’re inexorably drawn into the pure joy of such a rich, poetic and deep tale, so well and beautifully told.

At the end of a long, slow decline, the huge castle realm of Dica seems to be drawing close to its final days, but few of its remaining inhabitants are aware of this. Even when stirred into some ineffectual action by the arrival of an unexpected army - amassed before its gates - the true meaning of what’s really happening only comes slowly, and only to a small group of oddly assorted characters. Follow their journey as they travel the realm’s vast and convoluted ways, as they eventually unearth a complex and strange past, and much about themselves.

This is the first book of the Dica Series, a leisurely introduction to much of the weird and wonderful that marks this out as a unique 'created-world' story. This is, however, a world wrought with mystery, a world of the unexpected, a world of vast vistas and intimate observations. It’s also a compelling tale, one that builds to a most unexpected and thought-provoking conclusion. At times lyrical, the rich prose will steadily draw you into a totally fresh yet seemingly familiar place and time, one that will stay with you forever.

View full details

Synopsis

Will the New Messiah or the Anti-Christ be born?

In the year of Satan, 2066, the structure of the physical world is cracking, and inexplicable paranormal forces are interfering with humanity. The Trinity Investigation Organization, or TIO—a paranormal detective society—is the last protection against the demons, evil spirits, fanatical criminals, and sadists who are trying to destroy the world.

The 92-year-old Pope is pregnant. Although he hasn’t undergone any medical procedures, he carries a human fetus in his abdomen. Is this a case of self-cloning, or is it a mutation? Is this an immaculate conception, or is it Satan’s work?

Claire, Travis, and Prescott, the members of the Capuchin Trinity Team of TIO, are tasked with uncovering the truth about this unusual case and resolving the mystery of whether the Pope is carrying the new Messiah or the Antichrist, and who did it. Their job is to go beyond the physical world into the mind and the spiritual realm, discover a thousand-year-old connection, perform an exorcism, and fight the devil Zepar, while evading the villains who keep trying to assassinate them.

Synopsis

A mysterious man walking the earth for millennia...
And a discovery we might not be ready for...
UK #1 BESTSELLING CHRISTIAN FANTASY

With the success of his UK bestselling religious mystery, The Lazarus Succession, Ken Fry once again crafts a cunning and explosive historical thriller unlike any you've read before. If you love codes, legends, and the excitement of discovery, this book is definitely for you.

__________________________________________________________________________________________

ON TO THE STORY...

Tel Aviv, Israel. Archaeologist Joshua Agar makes a stunning discovery when on one of his excavation sites, they unearth an ancient ossuary, untouched since the day it was buried. Evidence and analysis reveals that the contents of the find appear to be the six of the Seven Seals mentioned in the bible's Book of Revelation.

The Seventh is missing.

Meanwhile, a mysterious man has been walking the earth for millennia. He waits... amassing knowledge and power, seeking to bring about the one event that would release him from his endless existence. With the discovery in Tel Aviv, his waiting might soon be over.

Joshua Agar and his team, Professor Simon Rockwell and Dr. Rachel Carver soon realises the significance of their find. An ancient society known as The Keepers awakens, and they are after the Seven Seals. For it has been told, that whosoever breaks the seven seals will have unimaginable power and control over the new world promised through the Second Coming of Christ.

The frantic hunt for the Seventh Seal begins. Through dusty caves, ancient churches, and even within the most secretive vault on earth, they search for clues to the possible resting place of the missing seal.

The archaeologists are not alone. Another ancient secret brotherhood called the Guardians have long protected the Seven Seals, since the time John of Patmos entrusted to them the Seventh. Using their resources, they attempt to discover the identity of The Grand Keeper and impede his plans for global upheaval.

As scientists, the archaeologists perceive their discovery as a historical relic and not a religious find. But with the forces aroused by the unearthing of the artefact, they start to question if there is indeed truth in the story.

The Patmos Enigma will take you on a journey of wonders and thrills as it hurtles from dark truths to enlightening revelations as the war between science and mysticism commences.

Synopsis

The third book of the Stone Quest Series finds Luke Stone and Beth Rutledge's marriage teetering on the edge of dissolution as their daughter Bridget Grace at thirteen, the spitting image of her father, struggles to break free of parental restraint, especially her father's attempts to guide and constrain her "second sight," the same psychic abilities he has, but which in her are ,if anything, even more pronounced. Now, adding to the tumult, is the case of three missing girls, all vanished from the Lower East Side of New York City -- the area where Luke in his teens lived as the disciple of the black magician and now his nemesis Armand Jacobi. As Luke is drawn more deeply into the girls' case, his investigation takes him back to Alphabet City and the raging Vampire Club scene. Ominous signs develop pointing irrefutably to Jacobi's involvement. But as Luke immerses himself in the case, staying longer and longer away from home, the relationship between Beth and Bridget Grace simmers more and more toxic. Unknown to either of her parents, BG has developed a secret, powerful relationship with a mysterious young man whom she first met in an online chat room. One day, as Luke is on his way to NYC , and after yet another blow up with her mother -- BG, like the three other missing girls-- vanishes, leaving behind a cryptic note. As Luke's investigation into BG's disappearance gets underway with the help of retired NY detective Stan Banor, Luke's world is further shattered by the sudden appearance of a beautiful older woman, a woman's whose face he knows but whom he cannot quite place. The woman is Danuta Dabrowitz, his mother, and she brings with her many memories and painful secrets. Though her cause, so she tells him, is but one: to join her powers with his in order to find Bridget Grace and bring her home, Luke cannot fully trust the woman who had so betrayed him as a child by leaving him alone in the hands of his abusive alcoholic father. With each passing day, the investigation grows more gruesome, and more deadly--even turning up the skeletal remains of a victim murdered twenty-five years ago, Matthew, whose murder has haunted Luke all his life. Working closely with Stan and his men, and with retired Sheriff Esther Rinaldi, Luke grows certain the girls' case is no longer a missing persons but a homicide. Then Danuta tells him of their heritage to an ancient people, the Neuri, who possess enormous powers, including the power of shape-shifting-- a power that Armand Jacobi himself may share. Once again, Luke Stone finds himself pitted against Armand Jacobi.. Surrounded with warriors he is not sure he can trust-- the most pre-eminent of whom is Luke himself.-- Luke must race against the greatest enemy of all -- time-- in this battle against his adversary to save his daughter's life.

When the castle realm of Dica again draws close to its final days, the ancient power long placed at its heart appears to be giving way to a new era, as the knowledge of the old founding fathers is methodically unearthed. It brings about a fresh mechanicking world, one seemingly bright with hope. All it lacks, to exploit these riches to the full, is knowledge long ago secreted to a distant colony, a place of safekeeping beyond the Gray Mountains. Travel with an oddly assorted party of both familiar and new wayfarers as they seek out that knowledge, as they strive to return the old power, but in service to a new future. Journey also into mystery and intrigue, as those familiar characters discover much more besides.

This is the second book in the Dica Series, a faster paced pursuit of the weird and wonderful 'created-world' introduced in Leiyatel’s Embrace. Although still a world wrought with mystery, a world of the unexpected, a world of vast vistas and intimate observations, it is also a compelling tale, a journey of individual journeys, all made beyond the vast confines of Dica. At times lyrical, the rich prose will carry you into a totally fresh yet seemingly familiar place and time, one that will stay with you forever.

The ancient engers knew it as a theoretical entity, one so remotely implausible that the idea only survived in an obscure verse. How could an ages-old poem give rise to the reality of the days of the Cold Angel, days that threaten the realm’s very future? And why does a woman’s determination to do right by her sister put her at the heart of a mystery, one that threatens to destroy the only love that sister has ever known?

Someone’s lost memories lead her to a strange meeting with a man in an even stranger tower, one that pricked star holes in the sky until but a few days before. What of it now, though, and its keeper’s determination to put things right at all costs? How is she to deal with the painful dilemma he draws her towards - when she’s asked to weigh the love of her sister against a duty to save the realm?

Stella has grown up harbouring a secret – a view of her world no one else can see.

Being a Starmaker, working alone at the top of the Star Tower, seemed like the job for her. Maybe so, but the view constantly reminds her how unique she really is in this realm of Dica.

She finally resolves to find out why, and thereby begins another enthralling episode in this much loved created-world’s turbulent history. It’s a tale seen through the eyes of Stella, a fresh, new Dican character, the daughter of Geran and Falmeard – two readers’ favourites from this singular series.

Follow Stella as she uncovers the truth not only about herself, but about the true nature of her world, and of all those held captive within it. It’s a path to discovery fraught with dangers only she and some few beloved Dican characters, like Lord Nephril, can overcome.

Even Stella’s own life comes under threat when she decides to challenge the realm’s established order, when she becomes one young woman against the might of the certain power of Dica.

With the ancient castle realm of Dica seemingly set upon a bright path into a brave new mechanicking future, flaws become evident, flaws needing time to put right. The old knowledge cannot be taken up fast enough to offset the loss of the ancient power of Leiyatel, and so plans are set in motion that aren’t to everyone’s liking. Follow both familiar and new characters, all embroiled in their own intrigue and deceit, as they chase often conflicting ends, each convinced they know what’s right for the realm

This is the third book in the Dica Series, one that steps out smartly on the road to revelation, uncovering all about the weird and wonderful 'created-world' introduced in Leiyatel’s Embrace. By it, a more compelling story develops, one that reaches out far further than even the vast confines of Dica. Still at times lyrical and rich, the prose now promises to carry you beyond the weird and wonderful, beyond the idiosyncratic and idiotic, into an understanding that will truly stay with you for the rest of time.

Don’t be misled, though, for this series is entirely Clive S. Johnson – the author, the poet, the artist. Unique, inventive, idiosyncratic and thought provoking, this series will push you away from the shores of the everyday and into a delightful voyage of discovery. You will find wonder, surprise, dry humour and some gritty truths as you’re inexorably drawn into the pure joy of such a rich, poetic and deep tale, so well and beautifully told.

On the day Prescinda leaves the fishing village of Grayden, and her marriage to a man she’s never loved, her return to the old family home of Blisteraising Farm is interrupted. A surprise visit by Nephril brings with it a strange request that he seems reluctant to explain.

“I know thou hath heard talk of a distant city,” was how he broached it, which seemed more benign than his last request that she "scare someone almost to death". This time she was asked to help Falmeard spy out a rare sight, but one which could very well foretell the end of the realm of Dica, and thereby of existence itself.

There begins a most strange journey that turns into a race to a discovery that should never have been possible. What finally comes to light places Dica and its people in their true perspective, and reveals an enemy within, an enemy they must defeat.

But even if Prescinda and her friends succeed, has Dica already been taken too far awry for the damage to be undone? Can they find a way to bring the realm back onto the path to a safe new future, and so keep true to the artist’s eye?

A man wakes to find himself in a train carriage, unable to speak or interact with his fellow passengers. He has no recollection of his past, no memory to speak of, but can somehow still engage with other passengers - the thoughts of whom he believes he can hear.
There comes a realisation, both personal and spiritual, surrounding the man’s personality that points to broader significance in terms of human identity and the nature of self.

Book cover image for Voices: a novel of the end times
View full details

Synopsis

Terrorism rising in Europe and the Middle East...global economies in disarray...tiny Israel threatened by enemies on all sides. Is this old world finally about to die?

In Voices, this question festers just below the conscious level all over the world, especially in light of an event thirteen months earlier when millions of people simply vanished from the earth.

Most of those remaining comfort themselves by playing along with the more or less official explanation—that UFO’s came by and beamed certain people aboard for reasons unknown. But deep inside they realize that explanation is nothing but a convenient fantasy and that in reality an event of Biblical proportions has occurred.

Daniel Goldman is among those who try to ignore the Disappearance. Consistent with his life-long commitment to rigid self-determination, he has pushed the matter out of mind and become even more fanatically focused on his work as an international investor.

But on a Monday morning in late September events outside his control begin to chip away at his comfortable ignorance. Everywhere he goes he finds himself hotly pursued and people wanting things from him he’d never contemplated. As he travels the globe negotiating the largest oil deal on the planet—and as an ancient empire gradually re-awakens—he meets and falls in love with a beautiful Israeli woman. She, together with her family and their rabbi, help Daniel discover he has never really been the “captain of his soul.” Instead, all his life a variety of “voices” have guided him to a single decision with eternal consequences. The Biblical Apocalypse is upon them and, one way or another, Daniel is destined to play an important role in prophesied events.

This novel, the first of a series about the end of this age, shows the world is not coming to an end—only this current evil age is. It also treats the Bible as the inerrant Word of God and presents a plausible picture of the end times according to a literal reading of its prophetic revelation.

Book cover image for Citizens Not Slaves : The Rise Of The 99%
View full details

Synopsis

All over the world, the 99% are slowly awakening to their enslavement by the 1% Power Elite. The internet has empowered ordinary people with more freedom to exchange information than ever before. The worldwide web could be described as a ‘get out of jail card’ from the constant barrage of misinformation and outright state propaganda that spews forth from the mainstream media on a daily basis. As the gap between the ultra-rich and the poor ever widens; as corporations increasingly dictate their agendas to governments who in turn clamp-down even further on their citizens basic human rights and privacy – then no wonder the world looks to be spiralling downwards into a state of total chaos. That’s how things look on the surface at least; but within these pages I’ll present the case that the global turmoil we experience every day is actually being controlled by unseen hands. This book also highlights positive activism; focussing on the concept of ‘Citizens Not Slaves’ as a growing global idea open to anyone who wishes to embrace it. Each chapter details a multitude of social-political problems; including brief historical outlines of how and why they happened. I also put forth possible solutions to those problems as well. It doesn’t have to be read ‘cover to cover’ – feel free to delve in at any chapter and read it in any order that works for you. If you’re already well versed in a particular historical background, simply skip that part and move on to any part that tweaks your interest. Simply take what you like from this book and disregard the rest. I hope the contents might also inspire you to do your own research on any topic within or lead you on to investigate something related and at the end of the day, draw your own conclusions. Throughout the following pages, I hope to convince you that we can be either free ‘citizens’ [pro-active] or ‘slaves’ [passive] by our own choosing. I will also be putting forth that ‘democratic-meritocracy’ is the best political model for the future that fills all the seismic gaps in the aftermath, left by every underground call for revolution. Seán Gearárd McCloskey "This heartfelt work discusses how the 99% has been kept down by the 1% “Global Power Elite,” looking at historical examples primarily in Great Britain and Scotland, and how the 99% might change the future to level the playing field..." - The Book Review Directory [www.bookreviewdirectory.com]
