Coming Savior (A DiujPa Novel) by B.K. Amodio begins with the graphic depiction of a slave being shot by his master. When you are Adsu Gulden -- the former general of Atlantis and heir of Babylon -- you will stop at nothing to achieve your ultimate goal: Ruler of the new world. Captain Nimmo, a former enemy, suffered a "tragic" death and so must Cayce Taylor, a teenage boy who threatens Gulden's acquisition of the DiujPa. But Lilith, a ruthless, shape-shifting creature and Gulden’s lover, can easily devour him whole. But why hasn’t she? The Shumanchi-Chai text foretold about a world on the verge of chaos. Is that why blood-red water is flowing through the rivers, birds are falling from the sky and earthquakes are killing hordes of people?

Coming Savior is a masterfully written novel that reveals B.K. Amodio’s nautical background. I reveled in 406 pages of action with mythical elements and the overarching theme of good versus evil.

During his six years of service, he received several prestigious awards including the National Defense Service Medal Sea Service Deployment ribbon and two Humanitarian Service Medals.

Coming Savior is highly recommended.
