Daimones
Daimones - Massimo Marino I was given a free copy for an honest review.

This book desperately needs a better translation. The copy I received had numerous wrong words and tenses, not to mention the spelling.

Overall the book was decent, if a bit cliched. The part with Laura really bothered me, but I must be in the ""old way"" of thinking. The women were pretty much useless, and they went into hysterics whenever Dan left the house.

The ending was abrupt and rushed, and I hope the next two books explains the aliens and why they did what they did.

Daimones
Daimones - Massimo Marino More than just an apocalyptic tale, Diamones is a superbly crafted novel which explores the importance of relationships, especially with regard to the moral and ethical choices we make. Reading Dan's story reminded me of the truth of what it means to be human. I felt what he felt and struggled as he struggled. Amazing character development. Bravo to Marino for crafting such a fantastic read. Highly recommend.

Daimones by Massimo Marino - Review.
Daimones - Massimo Marino

Thank you to the author for the review copy.

 

Dan Amenta woke up one morning to discover the world had changed…the Apocalypse had arrived.

Death, destruction, and disaster were wreaking havoc across the globe. Yet Dan and his family remained untouched and he sensed some sort of supernatural power had left them the only three people alive on Earth. They were not.

 

Post Apocalyptic novels are my favourite kind and this one was in the way of being slightly different to the norm. The end comes quietly and the whole book I would describe as quietly contemplative.

 

A beautifully written story which begins with a look at our society that is both frightening and real, this had the benefit of immediately grabbing my attention. After the event Dan and his family believe they may be the only people left alive. As they prepare for this possibility this is an extremely compelling look at human nature and our reactions to impossible circumstance.

 

I do not want to give much away. The author weaves a haunting  authentic feeling end of days tale using his characters to drive home the horrors of it all. I read this fast – it was difficult to leave behind and I look forward to more.

 

Recommended for fans of Post Apocalyptic fiction.

 

Happy Reading Folks!

A New World Order
Daimones - Massimo Marino
 
 
4.0 out of 5 stars A NEW WORLD ORDER, September 24, 2013
This review is from: Daimones (Daimones Trilogy) (Kindle Edition)

Dan Amenta and his family wake up one morning, just like every other that had come before it. To their surprise, the world as they knew it was no longer. Venturing out to find out the extent of the catastrophic event that has taken place, they realize that no one else had made it through the night alive but them. With no knowledge of any other survivors, their entire way of life changes as they acclimate themselves to what he later understands is a world order that humans were not aware of. With no indication of what took place, who caused it and why, Dan must take the helm and find a way for he and his family to survive under the circumstances. In the midst of this transition, Dan stumbles upon supernatural beings, who he eventually remembers encountering in his youth. Although afraid and unsure of their origin, he cannot contain his curiosity and seeks to uncover the purpose of these mysterious creatures. Learning how their presence and authority influences the earth changes his life forever.

Diamones by Massimo Marino was my first sci-fi read and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. It was nothing like what I expected from this genre. The events that took place in this title were not too animated or supernatural that I was turned off. I could actually picture everything as I read because of the detailed descriptions. For instance, I could see the trauma to the area around them as they searched for signs of life. There was one portion that seemed a little too "scientific" with details of what had taken place on various planets in the past, but other than that, I was able to remain engrossed in the storyline. What I loved about this book is that it addressed so many issues related to the human existence - fear, love, loyalty, survival, various dynamics of relationships, isolation, the need for security and so many others. I would definitely suggest this title for sci-fi lovers and those who want to give this genre a try.

Daimones - Massimo Marino
Dan Amenta wakes up one morning to discover the world has changed...the Apocalypse has arrived.
 
Death, destruction, and disaster are spreading around the globe. Yet Dan and his family remain untouched. He begins to fear they are the only three people left alive on Earth. They are not.
 

Efforts to survive and make contact with others reveal disturbing truths about the human extermination. Dan finds Laura who discloses even more. Her presence - a young, sexy, disruptive girl - adds questions about what is moral and ethical in this new reality.

 

Then supernatural experiences reported by other survivors force Dan to seek explanations from his own past. Memories of childhood hallucinations strike him with sledgehammer force, bringing him face-to-face with a secret millions of years old.

 

Planet Earth is in the hands of an older power, one Dan never envisioned and dares not disobey...
