First page Trench enters a town to get food, ammo and gas however quickly learns the town's people capture people and steal whatever they own. Trench barely escapes and is saved by old man who takes him to Las Vegas which is owned by The Sheik. After learning a wanted bounty is on The Phoenix, Sheik makes Trench a deal to enter in his death sport or be sold off to his enemy. Trench enters in a Death Race like sport with muscle cars covered in armour and weapons. Trench wins the race taking out all the other drivers then makes a escape and almost getting killed again when a fighter jet shows up and fires a missile hitting his car and crashing into a tunnel yet somehow walking away unburned or uninjured.
And this is where things get messed up. Trench is told by a group of people mostly women called Earthwomb stating he is the choice one to fight the evil and to proof this he must have sex with Earthwomb leader and then the story starts jumping all over the damn place! This is one thing I can't stand what some authors will do they'll write the first book right but when it comes to 2nd or 3rd novel they'll screw something up! I'm not going to lie there were parts which I felt would fix the messy beginning of this story and would have a nice ending to make me read the 3rd book but things fall apart! Also I hated how the writer kept using the words "slut" & "whore" when both good & bad characters are talking to women. Is it that hard to say woman that much in the story? Does every male character in this story have to always acted like prick?
"Sign" Despite the nice detail in the story with a very interesting setting and characters this sequel fails to have all the fun in Dark Messiah.
This was also published on the same year 1987 was the author in a rush to get this sequel done or didn't know how to make good as his first book?
One last thing the villain lacks background I was wondering how Dark Messiah started this whole war but each time the book goes back to him, he keeps stating he is getting stronger and building his army out of mutated children and watching people being killed in gory ways.
I'm very disappointed!
