End Times is a deeply involved work of religious ideas, wild chases and celebrity culture, subtitled ‘So begins the final battle between Good and Evil’, and was penned by author Jerry Jay Carroll. In this modern-day imagining of a realistic apocalypse (as opposed to the fire and brimstone kind), we see the machinations of Satan at work to create his own perfect being that will inevitably do his work and destroy the world: the handsome and talented Rex. But when Rex leaves his creator without knowing that Satan is supposed to be his master, the prince of darkness is determined to chase Rex down and get him back, leaving devastation in his wake.

Author Jerry Jay Carroll has produced an interesting and fresh spin on the apocalypse and good versus evil motifs in modern life, taking us away from politics and war and into the vicious and inviting power of celebrity life. This is an astute observation, and Rex’s beguiling persona rolls off the page, dripping with apparent perfection, giving the audience a clever position of insight as they watch the drama unfold and see how other people are taken in by him. I enjoyed the side characters who aid Rex in his unknowing quest, and the plot unravels extremely well to get to the crisis point, especially considering the length of the book. Time flew whilst I was reading, thanks to good editing and pacey plot structure. Overall, I’d recommend End Times as an inviting and thought-provoking read for modern action novel fans.
