Multi-volume, multi-genre author, Travis Hill introduces us to “Diabolus”:
Salvatore Domenico Antonelli is a disgraced ex-bishop, demoted and exiled to the farthest reaches of the Nicaraguan jungles for his sins against God and the Church.
Benito Felipe Castillo is a new breed of tech-priest from the ghettos of Barcelona, freshly graduated from Seminary, ready to serve the Vatican as an artificial intelligence specialist.
Tasked by the Vatican to confront DAMON-1, a nuclear-capable AI that claims to be Satan incarnate, returned to the physical world to bring about Armageddon, the two clergy must battle to restore DAMON and purge Satan from the enslaved AI's core.
The bishop is forced to play a deadly game with billions of lives in the balance, while the young priest must confront Satan's digital persona within the network.
The eternal conflict between good and evil, fought in the space between time, will bring humanity and their AI creations to the dawn of a new age... or to the brink of annihilation.
"The Exorcist" meets "Skynet" meets "The Matrix" in this thought-provoking new science fiction thriller by Travis Hill.
Diabolus is a great read! I judge by how enjoyable the story is, depth of character, pacing of the plot and errors that I find. This was a fairly complicated trick, the mixture of Science and Religion. There are many who think these subjects are mutually exclusive, but I think Mr. Hill accomplished this in admirable fashion.
Salvatore has a great deal of inner pain and doubt he must overcome, he felt betrayed by his Church. Benito, much younger, deals with the tech aspects and follows in the steps of his Lord.
Diabolus, one of my favorite books for 2015, will provide several hours of enjoyment for the Sci-Fi lover, as well the person interested in Spiritual and Christian concepts.
I give Diabolus 5 stars!
