Lucifer asked the Gypsies, “What is the punishment for killing a Dark Warrior?” There was absolute silence. All the Gypsies were in fear for their lives. They did not want to draw the attention of this powerful demon.

Jal, seeing an opportunity for himself yelled, “Life for life.” Lucifer watched as Rayus tried to warn his dad by tugging on his arm.

That evil grin appeared on Lucifer’s face once again as he said, “Jal, was that you?”

Seizing his opportunity he said, “Yes, my Lord Lucifer.”

In this second book of the God Chronicle trilogy, Thomas, God’s Last Prophet, realizes that the only way to beat Lucifer, and prevent Armageddon is by stopping the birth of the Antichrist. In his efforts to find Lucifer, Thomas gets bonked on the head by the Pope using a religious artifact, gets beat up by Gypsies, and almost killed by demons. Eventually, Thomas teams up with a stuttering genius that is possessed by a fallen angel. The unlikely threesome seems to click on all cylinders as they work together and chase Lucifer through Europe. Will collaborating with a fallen angel prove to be a bad choice?

The One Path is an interesting fantasy read that deals with demons, angels, and upcoming armageddon. Lucifer plans to impregnate some poor girl to make her give birth to the antichrist, which might mean the end of all things good. So God needs a prophet to help battle demons. Unfortunately, he makes a rather odd choice, and picks out Thomas, who is just about as regular and plain as one can get. But Thomas is God’s choice for the Last Prophet, and who are we to argue with that?

Thomas sets out to prevent the end of the world, but luckily, he soon gets help from his sidekick, Myrrh, a genius who is possessed by a fallen angel, which is useful at times, but might be dangerous too. With some help from the Pope, they’re on their way to battle demons, but things don’t always turn out as planned and Thomas finds himself in danger more often than not. Will they be able to halt the devil’s plan?

The book offers an unique blend of fantasy and religion, and stays true to the bible in a lot of aspect while still being original and entertaining. The writing style is engaging, and I could connect with the characters right away. The plot moves fast too, and it managed to surprise me a few times. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.
