Born from the fear of nuclear annihilation and painstakingly researched for over twenty years, Robert Gleason's End of Days is a thriller unlike any other.

Lydia Lozen Magruder--the great-granddaughter of a female Apache war-shaman--has seen visions of the End since childhood. She has constructed a massive ranch-fortress in the American Southwest, stocked with everything necessary to rebuild civilization.

Now her visions are coming true. John Stone, once a baseball star and now a famous gonzo journalist, stumbled across a plan to blast humanity back to the stone age. Then he vanished. Lydia's only hope of tracking him down lies with her stubborn, globe-trotting daughter, Kate, Stone's former lover.

Kate is about to step right into the plotters' crosshairs. Stone has been captured by a pair of twin Middle Eastern princesses, hell-bent on torturing him until he reveals all he knows.

Meanwhile, a Russian general obsessed with nuclear Armageddon has also disappeared...as have eight or more of his Russian subs, armed with nuclear-tipped missiles.

The world is armed for self-destruction.

Who will survive?

A female Apache war shaman? Male Apache war shaman? The last Apache war or raid ended in 1883, or so. The premise is as absurd as all the Cherokee Princesses every tom dick and harry used to have for ancestors. Probably there are as many Cherokee Princesses as Apache war shamans, though. Anyway, this is a truly lousy way to waste paper and ink. The fact the author didn't bother to learn anything about the Mescalero, the Chiracaua, the Mimbres Apache is only the beginning of why this book is a waste.

I found the beginning of this book extremely hard to get into. It was very chaotic and didn't seem to have much of a story line.

End of Days seemed to be trying to be too many things.

I did not finish it but went on to other books instead.

I gave up at page 117. A 700-page book should tell an epic story, not be an excuse for lousy pacing and a meandering plot line. Who edited this?

Still cannot get over the horrible layout of this book. Some parts of it made me wonder if there was symbolism I wasnt understanding or the author was under the influence while writing it. Stopped at page 75 and wish i had earlier.
