Rapture - Phillip W. Simpson

by 9:25 AM 3 comments

"The Rapture has occurred - the end of the world. The faithful have risen up to Heaven. Those left behind are in a living hell.  

Armed only with his swords and his wit, a teenage boy wanders this post-apocalyptic world alone, separated forever from everyone he loves. Cursed by his demonic heritage, he must now embark on a quest that will take him across the US to the City of Angels. There he will confront his destiny. There he must fight to save a friend ... and for the souls of the living."

Rapture is a story about a half-demon trying to protect and save the innocent after the "Rapture" occurs. Along with flashbacks to his past, you see the main character Sam, and how he gets to be on this journey, and all the things he has to deal with.

I found this book, which is obviously slightly religious, may offend certain people if taken too seriously. I also thought it started off quite slow, with a lot of action scenes. They are very well scripted, so you feel like you are there, however after awhile it felt monotonous, reading them over again. However by the end, I was excited to see where the story led, and what happened to Sam.

Overall, depending on the person, this should be a favourite with most YA readers. 

Until Next Time, Keep Reading! C  x
