Advance Praise

It is a post-apocalyptic vision that is stunning in its breadth and complexity. It easily rivals the power of Stephen King’s THE STAND and Neville Shute’s ON THE BEACH.

I don’t remember an apocalyptic story this hair-raising since my first reading of Philip Wylie’ s TOMORROW! over five decades ago.

Marino pulls together an episodic and dystopian past history of mankind, and the promise of a new galactic spirituality for our species. Erich Von Däniken, Philip K Dick and Arthur C Clarke might all have been sitting around a table collectively weaving together the elements of the new start instigated by the Daimones. I can see Marino sitting at the end of the table rapidly scribbling notes.

Daimones is a also philosophical book. Dan is constantly thinking, questioning, and at times second guessing himself as he searches for answers. The scenes are simple, but the context is rich. There are many underlying meanings in the writing, and you will be forced to ponder the seemingly endless possibilities as you read. You will be hit with many questions and dilemmas. There are no easy answers as the characters struggle to build a new reality and determine how they fit in a world that they no longer recognize.

NYT BestSeller Author Jennifer Blake
In this post-apocalyptic story for the thinking person, Marino explores a myriad of moral and emotional issues as well as the mechanics of everyday survival. The timeline is natural, unforced and the European setting adds a fresh perspective. The exploration of human relationships and their importance, of personalities and memories, provide real heart for the tale. Though sci-fi is not my usual genre, I enjoyed Daimones, and look forward to the next two books in this intriguing trilogy.

It is a post-apocalyptic vision that is stunning in its breadth and complexity. It easily rivals the power of Stephen King’s THE STAND and Neville Shute’s ON THE BEACH.
