Through the pages of this exciting novel, we will find out that the world was created by 22 Gods who created the different human races to use them to increase their power. By playing a game created by the Light and the Darkness, we watch the Gods use the 22 Major Arcana Cards of the Egyptian tarot as a method of increasing their power and control over all the human race.
In the middle of all this power struggle for control of humanity, there is an unknown political and economic group named SCAN that controls all the power resources on earth. When Denise Richards, a front runner to the presidency of the United States, confronts SCAN by challenging them, they have no choice but to kill her.
In this fascinating novel, past, present, and future are intertwined. Readers will discover the times of Jesus Christ, Pythagoras, Cleopatra, Napoleon, Hitler, and Martin Luther King, among other influential historical figures, to determine which tarot card was played by each to please the Gods in this long-lasting war between the Light and the Darkness.
Imagine if you can, that the world and everything in it was created by 22 Gods as a playing field for an elaborate competitive game. Our lives, our choices, our deaths; successes, failures, war, famine, love, hate, all there for the amusement of otherwise bored super immortals.
Now you have the setting for 22: The War of the Gods.
So now imagine that a human being on earth, a candidate for president, may just be catching wise to the whole thing and she is none too happy about it.
I like the way it weaves in religion, politics and new age thought seamlessly. It is full of fresh takes that give you something to think about for a long time. This is a book to go back to again and again.
At well over 700 pages, this novel is an epic to say the least.
The basic idea is that the world was created by 22 Gods which us it as a playing field and humans as the playing pieces in the ultimate card game. Every moment in world history decided by what cards the Gods played at what point.
Enter a female candidate for The President of the United States who challenging the political and econimic powers on Earth, making her a liability that needs to be eliminated to maintain the status quo.
It would take 3 movies to cover everything in this book. Or maybe a 12 part mini series. Either way it would be well worth watching.
