Perfect Prophet by Diane M. Johnson is dark and gripping, a tale with strong spiritual and physical conflicts. Alexander B. Lowell, also known as Alec or Alexander the Great as he was called by the hippest punters of his fledgling fandom, is shot on stage by a satanic fan, while he is playing the guitar in an underground club. An atheist, he starts believing in God, thanks to his miraculous recovery. But a trip back home opens his eyes to a reality he never imagined, even faintly, about his father. His hypocrite of a father has very dark and deadly secrets and a powerful link to a local satanic cult in which he plays a vital role. When Alec’s life is in even graver danger and the safety of those he loves is in jeopardy, he finds help in unexpected places, but can he survive what is heading his way?
Diane M. Johnson’s writing is beautiful and the characters are awesome. The characters are well explored, including Alec’s father, the prophet Brent Lowell, Alec, Lucas and a cast of other characters. The reader is pulled into a powerful conflict, the fight between good and evil, and themes like family, murder, crime, faith, and hope are written into the story in a brilliant manner. I enjoyed the prose and the author’s gift for descriptive narrative, scenes that are focused and insightful. Character development is top notch and the strong plot points make the story a gripping one. Perfect Prophet melds elements of thriller, horror, and the supernatural into one fascinating tale that is as edgy as it is dark. You can’t put it down.
