Mesphisto's Seed 2:
The Apocalypse of Silence

William P. Haynes

Page count: 177

Reviewed by Lee Pletzers

After reading the first book in this series of three, The Curse of Mesphisto's Seed, the Day of Awakening, I was desperately awaiting this second book. And book two delivers in two ways. First it is better written than the previous book, it is so much easier to follow the characters. And secondly, the pace is incredibly fast from the get-go. Mark and Peggy are married, and Elliott is believed dead, at the end of book one. Book 2 shows Elliott alive and well and in the presence of his father. But this book focuses more on the dark prince--Mesphisto than the first did, and naturally our heroes struggle.

Mark, Peggy, Josh and Anne find themselves in the presence of The Devil and Elliott and on trial for mankind, from the first line. Naturally they are quickly found guilty and are locked up in Hell's death row.

Mark's wedding present from Josh was a set of lock-picks and with this set Josh frees them, only to discover they may still be on trail as they check doors in a hallway looking for a way out. Each door they open leads somewhere and each one is sucked into a time in their past where they questioned God. Usually in times of great turmoil and fear and Peggy gets a glimpse of the future, a bad future, a future without Josh.

They finally get out of Hell to discover 16 years have past and doppelgangers have destroyed their lives. Debt is an ugly beast facing Mark, Anne has left him. Peggy has a terrible hairstyle and Josh owns a lodge. The Devil has finally put them out of the way, via the doppelgangers. Our heroes decide to find out why.

We also learn that Mesphisto has a weakness thrust upon him by God. Once every three days, his powers are stripped from him and he is suddenly mortal. And to help him past the time, he has taken a human woman, Denise, as a lover. Problem: he has something akin to love for her.

From the introduction of William, a detective from the twenty-third, the story jumps into an even high gear and fantasy takes a firm hold as we delve deeper and deeper into the apocalypse of silence.

This book far outweighs the first. The author has come a long way since the first book, the style is his very own but the story has more power, the words bring up emotions that most mass market books fail to attain. Reading the first book is a must, if only to discover why our heroes are in the situation they are in, learn about Elliott and his discovery of whom his real father is. Book 2 can almost stand on it's own--almost.

Wait until you meet, Lifthrasir…
