Scott A. Lerner - Ruler of Demons - Review and Giveaway



About the Book

Only eleven shopping days till Christmas. And less than a week to save the world.

Three nuns—in Chicago, Paris, and Jerusalem—have been killed in a religious ritual. The choice of victims and the macabre details of their deaths indicate that someone is following a recipe provided on an ancient text—a recipe to unleash the forces of hell on earth. The final sacrifice must occur on the Winter Solstice.

Samuel Roberts, a small-town attorney in Urbana, Illinois, knows a bit about the supernatural, having triumphed at least once over the forces of evil. Thanks to a friend who is aware of Sam’s little known previous efforts on behalf of mankind, Sam is hired by a big Chicago law firm to take on a sensitive case. His mission? Nothing less than halting the impending apocalypse.

Sam and his good buddy Bob travel first to Jerusalem then Paris in a desperate race to save mankind.

My Review

This is an intriguing story about a man called upon to stop a misguided individual from summoning the devil. This mysterious evildoer is trying to fulfill a quest which involves human sacrifice in order to bring forth the impending apocalypse.

I found this story to be somewhat scary and unsettling. It journeyed through many devious twists, including murder and torture. It's a race to stop an unknown enemy from conjuring the ruler of demons and what happens on this global trek to uncover that person's true identity.

This thriller is not for the faint of heart, but it's certainly a page turner.
