Book Description (via Goodreads): At the end of WWII, certain Nazis concoct a plan to keep their dreams alive. It was a secret kept alive by the escaping officers of the Third Reich. Their plans were running smoothly until a file named “The a Messiah Project” somehow had found its way to Ariana Newton, a reporter. In it was a startling discovery about Martin Voors, governor of Texas. If the file became public, it would devastate their plans. Jacob Black’s whole world was crumbling. He had been the senior aide to Governor Martin Voors, but now he was out. Arianna Newton, a local TV reporter, had been telling him for the last two years the National Society of the Phoenix and its leader, Martin Voors, were deeply flawed, but he never believed it until now. She told him she had been raped and next time they would kill her. They had gone too far. He had to help her. Arianna isn’t too sure she could trust him, but what choice does she have? They seek refuge with a group calling itself Remnant of Christ, but it doesn’t take long before now-president Martin Voor’s tyrannical government finds them and they are on the run again. Can Jacob and Arianna escape from the tyrannical government of Martin Voors? Is Martin Voors the new Antichrist?
I have received this book in exchange for an honest review. I have given Chronicles of the Anti-Christ by J. M. Harrison two out of five stars ⭐️⭐️
Unfortunately I found it quite difficult to connect with this story. I’ve said this once before, I do believe historical fiction isn’t really for me. This book has elements of WWII and refers to Biblical views, Nazis and the Anti-Christ being amongst them, which I didn’t manage to follow that easily.
I enjoyed the descriptive writing of Harrison’s throughout this book, however I thought the structure of the paragraphs were sporadic as the writer tends to jump between the past and present quite a lot. This, for me, overall was the biggest fault of this book as I struggled with trying to adjust myself to Harrison’s writing style.
There were quite a few grammatical errors I came across within this book, and I also found myself having to re-read over certain parts to either put the missing word into the sentence or to take an extra word which wasn’t needed out of the text.
There were several characters that we follow throughout the book, however I didn’t think they were well-developed into the story enough for me to feel connected and to get a better understanding of each of them.
Furthermore, the chosen artwork for this book cover wouldn’t draw me in normally to pick up this book and read it, I don’t think the colours and photos used for this book cover looks particularly good for a political thriller.
