THE END IS COMING! Maias 26:14

Two writers, tell two very different stories detailing the same event.

Griot. Raconteur. Bard. Jongleur. Skop. Spinner of yarns. Rabbi. Named by a thousand words, storytellers and those who crave them know one thing as true: that every truth has two sides.

This is a simple truth that has not been denied.

*I was given a complimentary copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.*


That was my reaction as I read the closing words of The End is Now by Connor Titus. It's a post-apocalyptic book with angels, demons, and various other groups which finally come together at a place called Mt. Empyreal which is near Fates Keep. What's unique about this particular novel is that there are actually two books by two different authors which detail the same events, but different points

The End is Now, grabs you by the throat on the first page and doesn't let go! The story starts with a small town with no power. A snow is falling that is poison and a dead body is in the middle of the road.... and it only gets better after that!

Her writing style is really unique... quick paragraphs that expertly blend into the next one... with writing so descriptive that you feel like you are there with them peering out the windows watching the scenes take place. I was totally absorbed, and gett

What an amazing book! The Foothills of Mt. Empyreal: The End is Now is so captivating and adventurous. I decided to give this book a try after one of my friends recommended it to me. She had told me how great that the book was, so I thought it would be a great read for me as well.

The book is filled with fun and memorable characters. One of the most interesting parts about this book, is that it is being told from the perspective of two different authors. Each author is telling the story of the s

First, we start off with a small, isolated mountain town. Supplies are scarce, and in the depths of the winter, toxic snow is killing off any pets that get outside. Only the crows seem immune. And there is a dead body laying in the street. No one knows who this poor soul was or how he got there.

Fates Keep is being invaded by a powerful, evil force, foretold in the most secret of prophecies. In this humble town, where the mountain holds deadly secrets, a long forgotten holy book may hold the key

A sweeping “The end of the world is here. Are you ready?” story.

Angels and Demons are at war. Humanity struggles in the middle of these two warring powerhouses. Can humanity be saved? I don’t want to spoil too much of Connor’s epic tale of Armageddon, but I can see where the two authors’ visions diverged. And the ending will stun you. I mean, wow…

What begins as a technological Armageddon quickly descends into the actual final battle. Crystal’s version is printed in a way that is reminiscent of

In the quietness, darkness existed, but in a blink of an eye, chaos erupts. The world as we know will never be the same again . . .

At the middle of winter, all of the technology of the world had been wiped out by a geomagnetic storm. It was predicted that within a year that majority of the global population would freeze, starve, or die. The people caught in this hellish existence felt that the end was near.

Is there hope for their survival? How do those that are left to endure this grueling situa

As far as horrors go, this had everything I like. I learned something new, and there was a massive amount of imagination put into religious history. There was also a complete set of flawed/awesome characters.

The story begins with a set of characters in a unique situation. They stayed in their houses respectively. Two of them played charades and other games from their windows to pass the time. The world, as they know it, was changing. The sun created a mass of changes that isolated much of the wo

“Everyone who has read the Bible thinks they know this story. But they do not.” This is one frightening and absolutely convincing story. The horrifying end of the world is coming.

Angels, demons, humans, wolves, werewolves, and unimaginable creatures are part of this bestseller. Each side argues over tactics and strategies of winning, to end in a crescendo with all sides in an epic battle. With traditional military tactics, weatherized warfare, magic and biblical prophesies, the combat starts ove

In The Foothills of Mt. Empyreal The End is Now is a collaboration between Crystal Connor and Lori Titus and is quite simply about people in a small town called Fates Keep dealing with the apocalypse. This book starts with a bang and doesn’t let up. We have angels, demons, wolves, a witch and lots of people hoping to survive. While the story is deceptively simple, there are a lot of characters and viewpoints to keep track of.

One way I would describe The End is Now is as ambitious. The way the bo

Exciting, Action Packed, and Chilling
This book is not your usual apocalyptic, end of the world read. First of all the authors did an excellent job at giving the same story while telling if from the different sides. The story is epic and includes fierce battles and angels, demons and other paranormal creatures, things that nightmares are made of. The action and adventure is practically non stop. There are so many twists and turns and bits and pieces that really keep you on your toes. I was really

What a wild, kick-butt action backed read!! Connor Titus not only opened one's mind to the history of what the End really means, but the plot twists left me astounded. Rythy wears her crown proudly and Lilth is as she always should be, awesomely wicked, I enjoyed their development although I was praying for the good guys. Great read, plenty of Biblical kick but with a respectful touch to all religions and their aid in the final battle of the end...or is it really the end? :) ~KL approved

I grew up telling spooky little campfire style stories at slumber parties. We’d make a tent in the bedroom, and the only source of light would be from a flashlight that was about to die. I’d tell my tale of doom and then while everyone was jumping at the tree branch scraping against the window and I’d be sound asleep!
