The Azeman is a work of Christian fiction penned by author Paul Mikos, which focuses on the legend of an undying monster who puts the lives and souls of others at risk. Our adventure takes place in the Amazon jungle as a group of volunteers comes together with the idea of setting up a safe haven to protect native people who have been enslaved. There are killers who would see that the haven never gets built, and dangers from nature in the forest itself. But beyond this is the legend of the monster, and when the group comes face to face with a creature of pure evil, their lives will never be the same again.
One of the things I appreciated about this novel was its pacing, and how it takes the time for the characters to have interesting and conflicting debates about human nature as they struggle to survive together in the jungle. I liked Dan and Chet in particular for their honesty, and when the danger came in full force all of the characters had something to offer to overcome each problem they faced. The central plot of the creature was chillingly created, with the atmosphere of the jungle surrounding and heightening the terror there. Author Paul Mikos cut a fine line between the quiet moments and the sudden danger, giving a sense of the unexpected to the novel which married perfectly with the types of dangers they were facing. Overall, The Azeman is a suspenseful and unpredictable work with plenty for any drama fan to enjoy.
