Revelation: Book One of the Revelation Trilogy, By M.J. Mancini

Revelation

Revelation is a story that resembles Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code. If you enjoyed that book you will certainly love this intriguing page turner too. It is a book about murder, betrayal, intrigue, and the holy church.

Michael Gabriel Raphael is a devoted husband and father, enjoying a peaceful and fulfilling life. Then one day, one moment later, he is thrown into an abyss of frustration, torture, and suffering the likes of which is very hard to fathom. Accidents do happen, of course. But few accidents change the course of one’s whole life-like this one did for Michael.

Michael’s estranged daughter is abducted by the Cavalieri di Satana (Knights of Satan), a society of devil worshipers. The Cavalieri plans to possibly kill his daughter in a ritual to prevent the second coming of Christ. Michael is told by Nicholas Nevsky, a religious theologian from Rila Monastery in Bulgaria that his daughter is the Holy Vessel Jesus Christ. There is no apparent coincidence between Michael’s last name and that of the Archangel Raphael. Is Michael’s daughter who they think she is?

Revelation is a unique intellectual thriller. It is violent, torturous, intriguing, and downright scary. The reader will be transported into this dark world of the Cavalieri. It is a nasty place indeed. How could such a good man end up there? How can he make it out?

This book is the first in a series of three novels in the Revelation Trilogy. M. J. Mancini was an only child. He was forced to use his imagination to entertain himself. Now, drawing from his wealth of creativity which permeates his writing, Mancini has become one of the most identifiable and intriguing authors.
