And the monster is...God Himself.

An incredible twist on Biblical history and extremely well handled. The pacing, storyline and characters were all very close to spot on. Unfortunately Brookside misses some opportunities for sub-plots and greater character delineation which take away a little from what is really an extremely good book. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a good solid read.

If not for getting the chance to read this book for free (yay Amazon lending library!) I might never have picked it up because it's self-published and well, I'm a snob. But I'm also really interested in fiction about the ancient world. It's rare to find a novel set during biblical times that doesn't have an agenda, and even more rare to find one that doesn't let its agenda get in the way of quality writing. Thomas Brookside manages to avoid both these traps and tell us another side of that story...more

This is Thomas Brookside's follow up to his incredibly creative and well executed "De Bello Lemures or The Roman War Against the Zombies of Armorica". Let's make one thing clear. Thomas Brookside may be self-published, but his writing is as crisp and descriptive as any big house publisher. Both stories take place in a very particular historical setting, and Brookside nails the narrator's tone and leaves readers with an extremely genuine exposition.

"Last Days of Jericho" tells the story of the fa...more

I have a longstanding fascination with the so-called history of the Old Testament. In fact, the first question that ever caused me to examine my religion of birth was how a God of Love could command his servants to directly commit genocide by their own swords, down to every last child and animal, when He (biblically-speaking) had the power to exterminate by supernatural means, thus psychologically sparing his followers?

This portrayal of the events in Joshua speaks to that speculation. The habir...more

To me, this book is a great example of what can be gained from independent authors and self-publishing. I purchased this book because it had one of the best concepts I've seen for a novel and it was executed very well.

I was expected it to come across as a horror more than it did, but that did not seem to subtract at all from my total enjoyment. The point of view of Sakal was a perfect and sane companion to the plot and all the characters - even when flawed - came across as very human and so elic...more

The Last Days of Jericho is an excellent read. I enjoyed the story from the perspective of a resident of Yarich, it offered a fresh take on an old tale. The author did a good job developing the main character and developing the story at a pace that made it hard for me to put down. I would reccomend this book to anyone looking for a dark fantasy set an a historical period.
