Abomination Desolation by Alan Thompson is a supernatural thriller and is the second novel in the Creation Abomination series. What would you do if you knew the end of the world is near and you can stop it? Once upon a time, William Mears was an excellent research scientist on the verge of something brilliant. Now, he is just a man in a mental hospital going through treatment because nobody believes him. He knows the end of times is upon them all, but no one is taking him seriously. However, the apocalypse is coming and it is approaching fast. It seems like William is the only one who can save the world from the impending end, but for that, he has to get out of the hospital. William is ready to do whatever it takes to save humankind and keep it safe from danger. But can he do it? Or will he perish at the hands of his supernatural adversaries?

Anyone who is a fan of action, drama, and supernatural fiction will love Abomination Desolation. William is a smart man; he knows how to weigh the pros and cons, think about his actions and then make a decision. He is analytical, he is observant and all of these qualities come in handy when he is trying to save the world. The plot itself is very rich, it is detailed and every sentence has a purpose. The flow is incredibly good; I never felt like stopping or wanting to pause. The situations created by Alan Thompson are believable and scarily real. He has the magical ability to weave pictures with his words. The moment I started reading the story, I was transported into William’s world and I didn’t want to get out of it. I enjoyed the descriptions because these made me feel and experience the story like it was happening around me. This is a great story, one that deserves attention from everyone!

In Alan W. Thompson's Abomination Desolation, William had sacrificed almost everything to destroy Cenetics. Even his wife had looked upon him with disgust as she realized what he had done. He had been labeled a terrorist and placed in a facility where visitors were forbidden. A vision warned him of what is still to come, that all he had done had not produced the results he needed. Somehow Cenetics was as strong as ever, continuing the research that they had stolen and twisted to their own design. By the time he is allowed a visitor, he worries it is already too late; heaven and hell are at war and the end is coming. They cannot prevent the inevitable but, perhaps, if they act now they can delay it.

Alan W. Thompson's Abomination Desolation is the second book in the Creation Abomination series. Although I have read the first book, I can confidently state this one also works well as a stand-alone read. The merging of Christian fiction, sci-fi, and thriller genres is perfectly executed. Despite its Christianity-orientated vein, I never felt like religion was forced or oversaturated the story. It was used as a means to create a compelling narrative and advance the plot which focuses on the approach of the end of days. I thought the translation of other languages by annotation was a really nice touch, allowing the reader to see the meaning without having to load up translate on their kindle or pc.

With high stakes, action, and a growing threat, William, Rich, and Tara are thrust into a fast-paced race against the Devil himself. Its descriptive narrative leaves no question as to the settings and events as they unfold, and while you meet characters from the former book, you are also introduced to new and interesting beings as events unfold. Action, suspense, and a ticking clock ensure you won't want to look away while the unique plot and great characters keep you engaged. The end of days was always predicted, but can their actions delay that which is inevitable?

Abomination Desolation is a work of darkly thrilling supernatural fiction penned by author Alan Thompson. Written as the sequel to Creation Abomination, we are now set to discover what happened after scientist and researcher William Mears unwittingly opened the doors to a terrifying malevolent force during his work. When the forces of the Devil had taken over and abused his work, William sought to destroy the lab that it all came from in the first place, and we now find him facing life in a mental institution. Escape is the only way to continue the fight of good versus evil, but William will need the help of those he loves to break free and save humanity.

It was easy to pick up the previous story from the way in which author Alan Thompson writes, which delivers smooth exposition in the dialogue and narrative without overdoing too many details at once. William is a fascinating character to encounter after his initial experiences with the dark forces, and his mental journey during this novel is a wonderful exercise in character development. Readers of supernatural thrillers are sure to enjoy the biblical themes and the good versus evil spirit of the piece, as well as the obvious talent which Thompson has for ramping up a cinematic and emotive atmosphere where it counts. The plot is not too complex, and it runs with some fun twists towards a really enjoyable conclusion. Overall, Abomination Desolation is definitely a recommended read for fans of the supernatural genre seeking a new apocalyptic fight to enjoy.

In Abomination Desolation by Alan Thompson, William Mears is a brilliant scientist who wants to cure the world of injuries that, at this time, are considered unable to be repaired. His work includes the use of embryonic stem cells that must come from the person who has the injury. William must discover how to create a human embryonic clone. We all know where the path paved with good intentions leads, however, and William soon finds himself needing to take on the Devil himself.

I love good sci-fi and this book is a GREAT sci-fi read. William Mears is a genuinely good guy who wants to do a good thing. I mean, tell me one thing bad about wanting to heal injuries that can’t be healed. Yet, as this book shows us, humans will be humans and, of course, it all goes wrong. Not only does it all go wrong, but a good man must now have a showdown with Lucifer! This book really delivered on all levels for me. It is well written, flows beautifully and has a great pace. The characters are all engaging and you really want to get in and become invested in this great battle of good and evil. Most of all, it delivered something in a new way for me that I really enjoyed. I have never seen the perfect blend of sci-fi and the supernatural as I did here. If you would like to dive into a great world and forget about what is going on right now, Abomination Desolation by Alan Thompson is the book for you.

Abomination Desolation by Alan Thompson is a spellbinding blend of science fiction and the supernatural. William Mears is a brilliant research scientist who has successfully found a way of curing the most difficult and incurable diseases by harnessing embryonic stem cells. While his intention has always been that of bringing good to humankind and using science to improve the human condition, his work drew the attention of malevolent beings who will stop at nothing to get control of his scientific discovery and use it against mankind. After destroying the laboratory that stole his work, he finds himself a prisoner in a mental hospital, and when he discovers that he never destroyed everything and that the evil work continued elsewhere, he knows he must escape. He is the only one to stop Lucifer from bringing about the apocalypse. Can his wife and father-in-law, together with the benevolent spirits, outwit the cunning of the evil one?

Alan Thompson has crafted a stunning story that has a very strong appeal to both fans of science fiction and the supernatural. The characters are exceptional and they are elaborately developed; multidimensional and real. I enjoyed the way the author develops the conflict in the story. William is a genius who thought his work can help advance humanity, but he unwittingly created a tool that the evil one will use to destroy the very humanity William wants to save, and in this lies the very premise of the psychological conflict that dominates the story. The writing is beautiful and I loved the way the author describes both scenes and the setting. The image of Los Angeles, the City of Angels, feels like a corona moment: “The city streets were mostly devoid of traffic, except for an occasional car or city vehicle here and there, or a sparse scattering of pedestrians.” Abomination Desolation is a fast-paced, tightly plotted story that ramps up quickly to an explosive denouement, an exploration of the conflict between good and evil.
