The Light at the End of the World"
by J.A. Cummings

Alexander is the son of a (mostly) human man and a Succubus. He was born & raised in Hell, but now his mother is bringing him to the Earth’s surface to keep him safe. Approximately every 500 years, an attempt to produce a child who will be the Antichrist is made. Alexander’s mother believes him to be the one they have been waiting for. A prophecy claims that there will be 3 potential children born who might be the True Antichrist. But the truth as to which is actually the one the Demons have been waiting for has yet to be determined.

At the same time, a woman by the name of Jessica learns from her doctor that she is pregnant. There’s just one problem... it’s been over a year since she last had sex, so how can she possibly be pregnant? At this time, she starts getting phone calls from a man she has never met. When she keeps refusing to talk to him, he suddenly appears in her apartment one afternoon. He claims to be an Incubus and the father of her unborn child. Hers is the second child of this prophecy. The Third Child, the child fathered by Satan himself, has not yet been located.

But hope is not completely lost, for there are also Angelic forces at work who have been sent to protect Jessica and the others involved in the potential arrival of an Antichrist meant to challenge Heaven and God’s dominance. As is to be expected, there is far more at stake here than is immediately obvious even to those involved. One thing to keep in mind is the question: can those who have Fallen be redeemed and returned to a state of Grace? Is Hell’s punishment and damnation truly eternal or can even the worst of Hell’s Demons also be forgiven and Saved?

I honestly did not want to put this book down to sleep at night, I was enjoying it that much. It brought up questions that had never occurred to me to wonder about before. This was one of the most original stories that I have read in a long time. The plot twists kept me guessing throughout as to what would happen next. And even though many of the characters and much of the plot involved sex demons, everything was handled in such a way that I feel quite comfortable allowing my 13 year old daughter to read this book. (And yes, she has asked me if she may read it.) There are no graphic depictions of anything inappropriate for younger readers in this book. Anything truly inappropriate happens “off-camera.”

I greatly enjoyed reading this book and would strongly recommend it to anyone. This was an excellent book that told an amazing story. You should definitely give this one a chance.
