The Battle (The Four, Series) by
Reviewed by R. Murry
If you like morphing of humans into werewolves and vampires feeding, then The Four, Series is for you. Those readers who shun away from reading about hearts being extract from bodies and heads being ripped off humans and non-humans should jump right in and enjoy themselves. The Battle is much more.
“…today will be the beginning of the end of mankind, as we know it…,” noted the leader of the Dark Ones, while in the middle of a predicament. This is the underlining story of the novel. Who will control the world – good or evil?
Yes, this theme will be used many times more, because of popular demand. Ms. Millmore’s twist on this ancient story is well written using modern intelligence devices that make the story seem plausible. Most of her characters are ageless with strength of a bodybuilder. A few are intelligent humans who understand what would happen if evil prevailed and help in fighting The Battle.
The Battle is fought around the world. However, ancient command posts are the center of concern for both sides. A major part of the plot is that The Four and their comrades have never seen the leader of the Dark Ones or know of his whereabouts. There are many sub plots that will entertain the reader – battles won and lost by the warriors on both sides of the line.
All in all, I had an enjoyable read for a non-believer. If you are a believer, the series should be started with The Beginning, Book 1. It’s fast pace and introduces you to The Four. However, The Battle stands alone as a read.
If you’re a non-believer in this genre, you don’t know what you’re missing.
