Please welcome Carrie.

About The Sounding
The Sounding is a supernatural thriller about an early Armageddon. But, unlike a lot of Armageddon stories out there right now – which feature zombies, vampires or natural disaster – The Sounding is grounded in real history and real prophecy. Based in both Catholic and Jewish theology, The Sounding gets its plot from the final prophecy in the book of Revelation, and what would happen if events today could force that prophecy come to pass – and the horrific judgment it brings – early. The Sounding has its band of good characters fighting to keep the prophecies in order. But the evil force they face comes from the devil himself to thwart God’s final plan.
If you enjoy Stephen King (particularly The Stand), Dan Brown, Dean Koontz, or Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, then you should definitely add The Sounding to your reading list. Although The Sounding is anchored by history and prophesy, it is first and foremost a suspenseful thriller that will keep you up late at night…
2,000 years later, Father Chris Mognahan is a member of the Hetairia Melchizedek, a secret society within the Catholic Church that studies Biblical omens. The society asks Chris to investigate an unusually grotesque crime – a murder on a college campus where the killer's hand literally burned off the victim's face. While the killing seems isolated at first, the society ties the murder to the final Biblical prophecy and a terrifying omen that the order of the prophecies is about to be disrupted. The final battle is coming too soon – long before humanity is prepared to win it.
Suddenly, Chris finds himself fighting against time and hell to keep the prophecies in order and stop an early Armageddon. He is joined by a band of unlikely allies, and together they find themselves in Rome above the Vatican Necropolis – the city of the dead – where the future is revealed to them in ancient texts.
They are not alone, however; an evil as old as time itself hunts them. As they travel across continents on their mission, the demonic force follows relentlessly, waiting in every shadowed corner, and every dark place.
As Armageddon descends, Father Chris finds that his only hope lies in a young woman within the group who has a secret gift – and their belief that God Himself may have sent her to keep the final angelic trumpet from sounding out the early end of the Earth.
I hope you enjoy my novel The Sounding.
