The rift between Iowa and the Abyss is thinner than it seems. Modern society meets the power and reality of myth in the new war between Chaos, Order and Maker. A priestess of Order seeking godhood unleashes a virus to mutate and enslave the human race. Those who survive will face the height of her power, but will they bow before it?
[Urban Fantasy, Supernatural Thriller, Post-Apocalyptic]
A fleet of enlarged praying mantises has invaded Des Moines, Iowa. Swarms of cicadas are turning survivors into winged soldiers. Orchestrating the warzone is a priestess of Order, who’s pursuing godhood, and the nation of followers who’ll get her there.
Caroline’s new friendship parts the veil between reality and myth, as a recruiter of Order needs her to hide him from capture. In their escape, the boss she’s loved like a father reveals his elevator into the Abyss.
In this new world, Caroline finds a usurped god and an angry ghost eager to make her their getaway back to power. What if the person her friends will need is heartbeats away from becoming the real threat?

Thrilling Urban Fantasy Horror - Awesome Magic, Great Action
This book surprised me. It is many things all crammed into one book. It was definitely horrific and you could call it a horror novel. And I also might call it an urban fantasy because it takes place in modern times but has a lot of cool magic. It is paced like a thriller. The story moves very fast. Even though the action scenes were a bit too gruesome for my taste at times, they were really well done and I really enjoyed them.
This book reads quickly because it is paced so fast. That said I was really intrigued with the magic system. I'm pretty sure I have a good grasp of it now, but I didn't really understand it until almost the end of the book. I still have questions about it but thankfully there's going to be a second book in this series, so hopefully I'll get my answers in the next book. The way characters gain power and use it was so awesome. There are those who use chaos and others who use order. The way the author came up with the way they use magic was really creative and made for some awesome fight scenes.
I loved the fast pace but I wish that some things would've been explained more. The powers that characters have—do all kinds of crazy amazing stuff but most of it wasn't explained until the end of the story. I kind of felt like I was flung through the story. That's to be expected in a thriller but with all the other cool fantasy and horror elements it took me a while to get a feel for the story. I loved it though. Timothy C. Ward definitely lets you figure it out as you read the story instead of using info dumps and hand holding. I would have personally liked a bit more explanation earlier on but you'll probably appreciate how he sprinkles it in while moving the story forward at a brisk pace.
I'm looking forward to the next book and especially getting to learn more about this awesome magic system and how the different worlds work in this book. So if you're looking for a thrilling gruesome book with a really cool imaginative magic system then check out this book.
