Evil Rises opens in 400 AD, as courageous King Tiridates of Armenia and his seven sons, empowered by God, turn back Satan’s plan to stop the spread of Christianity. Ever since this epic defeat, Satan has been plotting his revenge. Now he is ready to unleash a diabolical plan to destroy man once and for all. He will spawn seven children from around the world who will grow into young musical geniuses and coalesce into a superstar rock band. Harnessing the hypnotic charisma of popular music and the power of modern media, Satan will make this supergroup so popular, so influential, that the youth of the world will fall under his spell – and soon everyone else. Satan is convinced faith and courage are powerless against him. But sometimes faith and courage are all it takes to turn everyday people into heroes. In Ireland, Thomas O’Sullivan, family priest to Grew and Katherine McClosky, is horrified when Katherine is raped and visciously beaten. Clinging to life, Katherine gives birth to Chloe, who fills the delivery room with the sound of angels singing. . . .
In Los Angeles, music producer Avery Johnson and journalist Bentley Paxton become suspicious of hotshot music mogul Robert Best, whose strange behavior, and even stranger clients, leave them cold. . . .
Evil Rises presents blistering, page-by-page terror, unexpected heroism, the inside world of pop music and an epic struggle that will leave you clamoring for Book Two, Vasallus!
