I always read a lot, and science fiction, fantasy, in addition to the classics. Stories have always filled up my mind and never found their way to be written ever.
"Daimones" is part own experience and true facts with an added "what if" to provide an explanation to current and past events. The story is about 100,000 words. Genre is Post-Apocalyptic Fiction, with a mystery, suspense, with adult target audience.
It came out as a flood, an uncontrollable eruption, sometimes writing as if in a trance.
I hope you enjoy it and the whole sequel and universe that it is building up in my mind after Daimones.
Dan Amenta and his family woke up one morning to discover the world had changed. Apocalypse had arrived.
They were surrounded by horrible disaster. They were surrounded by death, yet they were untouched by it. More and more they sensed that some sort of supernatural power had left them the only 3 people on Earth. They were not!
The efforts to survive and find other people brought Dan to discover the disturbing truth about the human extermination. Dan and his family met Laura, who brought revelations about this catastrophe.
The presence of Laura, a sexy, young, and disruptive girl, raises questions about what is right and ethical in this new reality.
Other survivors report what they have seen, forcing Dan to find explanations in his own past. Ancient hallucinations strike Dan with the force of a sledgehammer. They bring him face-to-face with his new role in a scenario with roots millions of years old.
Earth is in the hands of a higher, older power, but not the one Dan had envisioned throughout his life.------
