The Revelation by Jason Sheil

They are the light that awaits us in the end... 

For most of her life, Fiona Carter has suffered from nightmares. Within them, she finds herself in a desolate world of ruins and smoke, pursued by a terrifying beast that she can never escape. When a strange package arrives in her office, she begins to question the nature of these dreams–and the horrible truth behind their cryptic warnings.

Further west, a middle-aged shopkeeper finds his vacation ravaged by catastrophic events. Lured by visions that may not be real, he descends into the Earth, only to emerge with a strange weapon and an unusual gift. With no memory of the day’s events, he and his family descend once more into the depths, only to find themselves face-to-face with their own nightmare.

Soon their stories will converge, and they will find themselves facing an awful truth. Something is coming, something old and powerful beyond imagination. When it arrives, it will shatter their worlds and tear their lives apart.

Note: The Revelation contains pervasive graphic violence and harsh language.

A serialized novel, updating infrequently

Interesting Characters… Erractic Story Pacing

By Scott Scherr, author of Don't Feed The Dark

Aug 13, 2017: Note: I’ve read all nineteen chapters currently available and still feel like this story is in the early stages of development. Keeping that in mind, I’ll focus on the build up.

The Revelation starts with its first character, Fiona Carter, having one helluva apocalyptic-type nightmare that clearly foreshadows some major events to come, which future chapters also elude to. Afterwards, we discover that these nightmares are reoccurring and that Fiona is a bit more than just your average everyday girl. In [more . . .]

Solid work, but lots of rookie mistakes

By TanaNari, author of Price

Aug 11, 2017: It’s hard to discuss The Revelation without going into heavy spoilers territory, but I’ll see what I can do. The writing is solid, the characters are interesting, and the author put a lot of effort into making the world feel authentic . . . but for the pacing, and the cat-people.

It hits the ground running with a confusing, trippy sequence that it doesn’t take long for an astute reader to recognize as a nightmare sequence, which is used effectively as a means to get [more . . .]

Not Quite The Revelation I Was Hoping For

By Rhodeworks, author of Not All Heroes

Aug 15, 2018: Because of a WFG issue with posting the review, I’ve had to cut this down to the bone.

IN SHORT: The Revelation, in many ways, feels like a take on the genre I should get behind. It has prophecies, possession, ancient horrors and a blurred line between real and unreal. But, for all of its interesting ideas, it just isn’t up to the task of exploring them in a way that grips one’s emotions or intellect.
