Archon Greta Sanchez and Strategos Evan Nubia struggle to hold together the Manhattan Union, amid Acolyte Possession Attacks, factional strife, and Database cartel crimes, while Sister Consuela Grajales tries to provide spiritual guidance to the people after she has renounced violence. But, when the Acolyte Possessions threaten all of their families directly the former Apostates consult Simon Schrubb about this mysterious threat. Simon Schrubb directs them to seek out Paradise, a hypothetical super backup server that just may hold the key to the Acolytes. And so, they set off in an armored convoy across the radioactive city ruins and dead tree littered wastelands on their perilous quest.

Little do the Apostates know that Apedemak Nubia and his Nubian Braves fight for control of their home, Sulfur Springs, which is said to hold Paradise, against the Trinity, a being that somehow controls the Acolyte Horde. As the Nubians split up to search out allies east and west, the Republic of Ukiah finds unlikely allies in the Nubian Braves, and the former Prelate Ayane Inoguchi, who struggles to reconcile her past, while helping to defend the Republic from an all-out Chinese invasion of the West Coast.

But, amid all the chaos the Lake of Fire burns deep below the Earth and threatens to undue all labors to consume the world and usher all souls to Paradise in the name of the Trinity and the Proxy Messiah.

The Apostates Book Three: Lake of Fire 
by Lars Teeney
The Apostates Book Three: Lake of Fire (#3)Are the final battles of the remnants of a shredded nation finally coming? Will the political machinations of the different state/countries and their power-hungry leaders bring the final curtain down on what is left of civilization? What of paradise? Does it exist on the plane of reality or is it a state of mind or machine?

Lars Teeney is back with The Apostates Book Three: Lake of Fire where the quest for absolute power in a world devastated and lost will bring deceit, back stabbing and behind-the-scenes treachery. Meanwhile, there are those who fight for justice, the love of a higher power and peace. These are the ones who begin suffer under threats and vile actions. As they turn to one man for answers, they are told to find Paradise, where they will discover the answers and power they need in a mythical super server that may hold the help, understanding and answers they seek. Who guards such a treasure that may hold the answers to regarding the Acolytes, what their plans are and how to thwart them. The questions remain, are they searching for something that does not exist or will they unlock the secrets behind a world about to implode on itself?

Take a long and arduous journey with Lars Teeney as countries fight their neighbors, old bonds are shattered or reinforced and mankind is on the brink of destruction, because of their vile ways. The stage has been set for action, and the reader is swept into each page, only to watch heroes fall, and the secrets of time and the unknown are revealed. Is this what we can expect should our world fall apart?

I received this copy from Lars Teeney in exchange for my honest review.
