The premise is a creepy familiar yet, the story is a fascinating unique blend of a believable potential, and the prophecy that spawns it. The five main characters are a sensational group of interesting outcasts. Several times, Dr. Loeb the quasi-leader made me laugh and wrinkle my forehead. In my opinion he carries the story and provides the perfect personality and resume' to make it happen. His interaction with polar opposite, Bowen is entertaining and adds dimensional depth.
A fast-moving, quick read, this story is a clever scenario as the characters mirror the foundations of beliefs that surround the phenomenon. Please read, you will not be disappointed.
