it was amazing

A downward spiral into madness of a sprawling, demented architecture. A byzantine plot that can only be the work of a true master of the craft. There is so much to see, so many directions to go, that you never know what to think, who to trust or where to look. APOSTLE RISING reads like a furious, unleashed wave of creativity and talent. While I cannot really say it was controlled, it's a psychological thriller that is crazy in all the right ways. Count me as a fan of this guy.
