Indie Book of the Week; The Faustian Host by Dave Becker

This week I get to bring you something a little different. Something filled with lots of adventure and intrigue.

This week I bring you Dave Becker's book, The Faustian Host, book one in the Apocalypse Signs series.


Plymouth Rock is bleeding. Day has turned to night. Hundred-pound hailstones level buildings. The small town of Clement seems cursed, and the residents know who's to blame: the new kid, Tony Marino.

After losing his family and his home, 14-year-old Tony is forced to move from Florida to Massachusetts to attend Kalos Academy, an unconventional school for gifted children. Strange things begin to happen the day he arrives, and soon stories of plagues, monsters, and mystical objects surround him. Refusing to believe superstitions, Tony struggles to explain the occurrences logically, until he comes face to face with a satanic cult determined to bring about the end of the world.

My Review:
Dave Becker has managed to create a world filled with mystery, adventure, plagues, curses, cloaked figures, angels, death and yes even religion which all fill this wonderfully written story of one boys adventure into discovering his destiny.

In fact I would go as far to say this is a tale fitting for any lover of a good old fashion Indiana Jones adventure.

This was such a great, different story that truly will appeal to anyone that loves to be caught up in mystery surrounded by legends and myths of old.

This was a fast paced story that kept me turning the pages and interested the whole way through.

I give this one 3.5 to 4 Stars!



  1. Interesting. I love myths and legends and Indiana Jones stories heck I love history. This sounds fascinating. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This is not my normal sort of read, but I love the idea of featuring an indie book weekly. I look forward to discovering some books through your posts.
