Time’s Up by Annette Santiago
On Halloween night, revelers gather in Salem, Massachusetts, to celebrate as they do every year. But this night won’t be like any other, as spiritual forces of darkness unleash themselves against the world. In a true apocalyptic battle of good vs. evil, angels and a saint of old fight against Lilith and her beasts, a resurrected Hitler, and even the snake from the Garden of Eden. But the only ones who can truly overcome the demonic forces and save the world are Adam and Eve, as they seek to overcome past temptations and restore themselves to what life was like in Paradise before their fall.
Time’s Up was referred to me as a “controversial novella” and boy did it not disappointment. It is quite short, about 72 pages, and is written as a screenplay. I don’t usually read plays, but the story sounded like something I would be interested in.
I give this novella three stars.
I liked the pace of the book and it is written well. There were several disturbing aspects in the novella and I felt myself cringing as I read. (That’s not a bad thing.) I was definitely engrossed in the story. It’s just a bit of a stretch for me and probably isn’t the sort of thing I would normally read.
I’ve included a preview, just in case this book sounds like something you would be interested in reading.
Peace and Love to All
