Who Can Stop the Apocalypse?
Jack O'Conner is lost, alone in the world. A year after the tragic death of his soul mate, alcohol is his only companion. He spends his nights drinking, angry, blaming God for his misery. Jack seems to be an empty vessel full of bitterness...and he catches the eye of a small demon scout named Max, who is searching for a soul to be consumed by his partner, Ike. The two demons determine that Jack would make a good vessel, and the consuming of Jack O'Conner begins. But there is more to Jack than the demons bargained for, and soon after the consuming, Ike finds himself trapped in Jack's body, without the control he needs. Max realizes he must find answers to free his helpless best friend. On his own for the first time, Max must risk his life to traverse different realms, seeking guidance from other demons. While on this quest, Max learns about a warrior demon named Garrock, and his terrifying plan to overthrow Lucifer and start the Apocalypse. Many of Lucifer's lies are revealed to Max, including the surprising truth about Jesus. With a new perspective on the value of mankind, and in a last-ditch effort to save his friend Ike, Max befriends Jack. The future of the world lies in the unlikely hands of two demons, and the man they have conspired to possess, as the three of them must work together not only to free Ike, but to thwart Garrock's plans for the Apocalypse. An intelligent and inventive blend of science fiction and religion, The Consuming provides a unique viewpoint on good and evil, with imagery and characters you will remember long after you turn the final spellbinding page.
