Predatory Ethics #1 Author Athanasios – Johns-cycling-diary.co.uk The Antichrist lives He is wanted dead or alive by Satanists the Catholic Church and the Dark NobilityKostadino must save him or let theRent continents and time periods The author seamlessly weaves an intricate Gods Revelation Cancelled PDF #10003 plot that connects an array of fascinating characters that propel the momentum of this wonderfully ambitious narrativeAman S Anan First and foremost let me say that I started reading Mad Gods with than a little skepticism and was fully prepared to have to slog through a written work that I figured was politically coded than the Bible I was prepared to be bored out of my mind Athanasios and you can be annoyed with me for it later but read this review first and perhaps you’ll change your mind about it You see I had interviewed Athanasios at one point and during the course of said interview he had explained what Predatory Ethics means to him His definition was something akin to “Do unto you because I can” and since he’d written a few works about it and I had read the reviews and garnered some small kernel of the plot line from them he asked me to read and review the books Now that I’ve read Mad Gods I must say that I’m glad I have because it was not only an interesting and engaging read it has underlying meaning and morals intricately interwoven into the storyline that are impossible to miss Athanasios seems uite adept at multitasking in his written works and I can respect that I couldn’t help but notice one consistently underlying theme through out the entire story and it was as simple as this Destiny is not preordained or predetermined your life and the direction it takes has everything to do with the choices you make While a person’s path may be set in front of them it is up to them to determine which direction that path goes It’s integral to the story and carved like stone into the plotline I enjoyed the blending of religious iconography with mysticism and mythology as well as occultism Mad Gods was an artful and masterful blend of all the myths legends rituals rites and beliefs to which everyone clings both the religious and the faithful and it painted a vivid portrait of the writers’ beliefs about the circumstances that brought about all our modern day faiths Athanasios has a remarkable grasp on historical religions and myths and legends and their influence on the modern day right down to the everyday choices we make In the end I’d have to give Mad Gods a four star rating because there are formatting issues that took me out of the story at first I thought that it was patterned for dialogue and wondered at it until I noticed that there really was no discernable pattern and I was thereafter able to disregard it and just continue reading There are also some punctuation errors though I want to stress that they didn’t interrupt the story or take from the storyline for me I do believe that this is not a work for anyone who is easily offended or for kids because there are openly sexual encounters and though they’re realistically not terribly descriptive they are not for those who don’t like written illustrations of same sex encounters I really liked Mad Gods and believe that anyone with an open mind will think the exact same thing I did when they read it; Well done Athanasios

The Antichrist lives He is wanted dead or Revelation Cancelled ePUB #9734 alive by Satanists the Catholic Church and the Dark NobilityKostadino must save him or let the world turn into hell on earthWhat I liked about Mad Gods was that the au Athanasios takes a lot of risks in the construction of Mad Gods; some of those risks pan out beautifully and some sort of fizzle especially in the second half Mad Gods is a synthesis of cult favorites seamlessly invoking and intertwining Dan Brown Stephen King and William Blatty along with a ridiculously prolific knowledge of American popular culture from the 1960s and just about every conspiracy theory with any staying power from the time of the Crusades to the present The story follows the prophesied birth of the anti Christ in the form of a small child named Adam in Argentina and the web of individuals from shadowy Knights Templar to zealous Luciferians in their attempts to capture the child and use him for their purposes Guarding the child is a relic of the past Kostadino Paleologos a reluctant hero and a descendent of the rulers of ancient Constantinople before its fall into Muslim hands Mad Gods encompasses centuries of history and is a clever and plausible revision to commonly accepted Church history in the West Along the way there's magic lost tomes and dusty libraries as well as action packed bursts of good versus evil that put many action writers to shame Indulgent and overly explicatory Mad Gods ultimately spends too much time forcibly connecting the dots between disparate historical events and trying far too hard to make everything fit into the narrative from the Kennedy assassination to the popular false pope conspiracies of John VI The novel begins as a historical thriller and the first half is a taut and purposeful page turner with interesting mysteries and sound historical contextualization Indiana Jones meets Robert Langdon in a near Eastern hero who is enigmatic and complicated Kostadino is chased by Vatican assassins and directed by ghosts to ancient libraries that reveal lost aspects of history that are thought provoking and ripe for literary exploitation The emphasis on the fall of Constantinople and the Fourth Crusade was especially appealing to me; as a historian who wrote several papers on the subject I was pleased by the level of scholarship and the depth of the narrative Herein lies the weakness of Mad Gods however In the first half Athanasios manages the delicate balance between driving the plot forward and back building with the explication serving to give depth to the action and his main character In the second half the balance is lost There are simply too many plot lines to follow each with their own massive depth of historical context to delve into which simply distracts from the present plot The tension of the deadly game of hide and seek Kosta and Adam are playing with the various forces looking for them is lost between chapters of explication and backgrounding for characters who in the end didn't really matter all that much and ended up being replaced by a new shadow organization in the Black Nobility who become the driving force of much of the plot only in the last uarter of the book Don't get me wrong the sudden puppet master twist can work well in books of this kind but in this case the many factions are so sub factionalized you risk losing the reader and the labyrinthine connections and double crosses When the narrative finally does return to Adam and Kosta it feels like it's done mostly out of a sense of duty or an afterthought catching the reader up to events that have been happening with this central pair of characters while the narrative was busy focused on developing conspiracy theories and in those intervals the author seems to be stuck on a stroll down memory lane with accountings of whatever music or movies happened to come out in that year taking up 80% of the narrative on this much neglected track Mad Gods does present several very compelling and original ideas and unlike most works in the genre has some pretty darn amazing prose to back it up Athanasios paints beautiful pictures develops interesting characters and makes obliue historical references interesting and entertaining but there's just too much there for one book to stay focused and on point There's tremendous potential here and Athanasios is definitely someone to watch for in the future I have the feeling a good editor could get the second half to focus as well as the first which would make for a page turning but shorter first volume Some of the tangential stories are interesting in their own right but perhaps could be part of a companion volume of short stories that fill in gaps in the main narrative for die hard fans who want to know all the intricacies worked out in the author's mind
