A Doctrine of Fear by Paul JC Edge is a highly imaginative vision of the end of human civilization. It is part 2 of the Summer Haven series. At the beginning of this book, most of humanity has already been wiped out by a deadly virus that turns people into flesh-eating creatures. In Doctrine of Fear, we find out the virus was caused by aliens who are headed to Earth to inhabit the planet. We meet a man named Joe who will play an important part in mankind’s defense against the alien invasion. Although Joe appears to be just an average person, he is suddenly being hunted by evil forces. None other than the Pope himself comes to his aid by assigning an elite group of soldiers to protect him from the brain-washed assassins who will stop at nothing to kill him.

In A Doctrine of Fear, Paul JC Edge did a spectacular job of upping the ante this time around by adding demonic beings and aliens into the mix with the crazed zombies of the previous book. There are new characters and new plot twists that give this book its own unique personality while it also ties in nicely to the groundwork established in book 1. I found A Doctrine of Fear to be an exciting story that was difficult to put down. The pacing is fast and furious. The large cast of characters is well defined and easy to relate to. The author has a fertile imagination that keeps his storyline fresh and unpredictable. If you’re looking for a run-of-the-mill zombie book, you’ve come to the wrong place. A Doctrine of Fear is a wild ride that flies through unexplored territory at incredible speeds. I highly recommend A Doctrine of Fear as well as the rest of the Summer Haven series.
