Damien, whose own father tried to kill him seven years ago... Damien, whose loving foster family is learning the meaning of hellish fear... Damien, who is leaving behind the seeming innocence of youth to fulfill the terrifying prophecy foretold long ages ago... Damien, who is discovering that it is not, after all, the meek but the master of ultimate evil who shall inherit the earth!
I was on the second book of one of the most famous fiction antichrist Saga's known the Damien Omen saga, there was 6 book's written by different authors i'm not going sit here and say the book's were based on the film or vice versa when I don't know. The thing I do know though, is the sega is amazing!! It has that kind of retro Horror feel about it that has been copied a lot, but this is the original and it's held it's craze as a classic.
Damien is now 13 in this book. And for some reason doesn't actually know he's the Antichrist. To me that seemed a bit out of place as I'm sure in the 1st book he is actually told.
The plot, it's self was fantastic, it didn't quite focus on the main protagonist Danien but mainly on those around him and for the family he was adopted into the 'Thorns' and the Thorn's corporation, it had a quite of up to age feel that I liked considering this book was written by the author in 1978! It didn't have a drudging polt and the paperback was slim and easy to read. I'm actually so hyped I now own this whole collection! As it really is classic horror read. I just have to watch the films now!
