*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
Anyone can get a random message from an unknown entity saying you are going to hell and exactly how much time you have left. At first people think it’s just an urban legend but then a man is chased, beaten, and burned away by hulking demons; fostering religious cults and widespread panic.
I read this before I watched the show but this gives me the same types of vibes Remina should have given me but didn’t quite get there in the horror department. This is really good at showing how crazy people go when faced with a great unknowable force. The point doesn’t seem to be the demons or the prophesies, it’s how people react in different ways as they try to make sense of it all. It is dialog heavy when it’s not violent and gory so if you don’t like violence or don’t have the patience for a lot of talking, then give this a pass. Personally, I didn’t mind those at all. 4 out of 5.
