“A Conspiracy thriller that morphs into a post apocalyptic futuristic saga”
Behind the pages of history and the rhetoric of world leaders, a game is being played for dominion over the human race by a species we have evolved to forget: those that lie in the shadows and whisper to us when we are at our most vulnerable.
It's been running since the time of King Solomon and has influenced everything we hold dear and central to our humanity: from our major religions, through to the Holocaust even the financial crisis of the 21st century.
Everything has been at their hands and now a winner is in sight. But it's not only humans that are open to corruption. The rules have been broken and the simple game has turned into a battle for survival. Who are they Why are they here? And where does this leave the human race?
We need a champion of our own, someone to win this game for us and save mankind. But a game of chess isn’t won in a single move. What you need is a strategy.

I keep wavering between 4 and 5 stars on this one!
The way the author took different beliefs, legends, and myths, and brought them together for one riveting story really grabbed hold of me and didn't let go!
There were two powerful, emotional scenes in particular that I think might be a trigger for some (I had to put the book down for a bit and walk away), but I honestly felt like they truly added to the story and character development, rather than being thrown in for shock value.
I loved it, can't wait for more!
