“Reviewed By Lex Allen for Readers’ Favorite
“Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Emery Merrick presses a pistol to his temple. Then there’s a knock at the door.” Welcome to Emery’s cabalistic world where immortals reign and biblical mythology is rewritten. Billionaire Thaddeus Drake’s secret society works to fulfill biblical prophecy and sacrifice the Earth to a bloodthirsty god. Longinus, ostensibly and historically, is a Roman soldier who pierced the side of Jesus on the cross but is far more deadly and immortal here. In A Portion of Malice by Lloyd Jeffries, nothing and no one is what or who they seem.
Similarities to the horror in many of Stephen King’s novels and the spiritual/religious undertones of the plot lines in Dan Brown’s Angels and Demons are clear. But readers familiar with Dante’s Inferno, and his journey through the nine circles of Hell, will also recognize the poetic justice and a strong emotional “feel” as they travel with Emery Merrick through this fantastic world where nothing is as it seems. Biblical history forms a baseline from which Lloyd Jeffries redefines and simultaneously shocks the reader with a ‘who is really who and why is he doing’ … but, I thought… wait a minute—what the—sense of wonderfully enticing imbalance and surprise. Notwithstanding the apparent comparisons to King, Brown, and yes, even Dante, Lloyd Jeffries’ A Portion of Malice is a must-read, not only for the overall storyline but also perhaps because of the fascinating characters and imaginative “rewrite” of biblical mythology and history masterfully written. Currently the first book, it appears there will be a sequel to A Portion of Malice and that calls for a rousing Hallelujah!”
