Dominion V: Ascension
Book V - Ascension Summary:
With the power of music at his back, Jimi T. Expo steps onto the political landscape with a singular purpose; draw all peoples and nations together for the glorious transition into the coming age.
The collapse of a one-time superpower sends the entire planet into a series of regional armed conflicts, which threaten to escalate into a nuclear exchange and full-scale Third World War. This crisis creates an opportunity for none other than the Mystic King’s intervention, seeking to broker a seemingly impossible agreement which could offer the world a final and definitive world peace. One man, Sir Thomas Leese, risks all to stand between this rising star and his intended destiny. The world is left to ponder: Is Leese the final proponent of the archaic social/moral construct called “religion?” Or is he the champion and defender of the best principles of Western civilization, holding fast to eternal doctrines that do not sway with the winds of time?
In the midst of the temporal conflict, the revelation of Father Daniel Ananias’ singular purpose in life becomes manifest, placing him on an existential collision course with the world’s newly chosen Messiah. Armed with nothing but his deep conviction in a forgiving God, and the recognition that all in creation are offered the choice, the priest prepares himself for a different kind of battle—one where the battlefield plays out on the corrupted landscape of a human soul.
Will the ascension of the Mystic King provide the world with the true, yet elusive peace it has sought since the beginning of time? Or will the Earth find herself once again in the grip of a much darker sovereign?
Series (Dominion) Summary:
A great monument of the Islamic faith crumbles to the ground in a freak earthquake, setting the stage for mankind’s entry into the next age; an apocalyptic time where right and wrong, love and indifference, and black and white fade into alternating shades of gray.
Fraternal twins, Jesse and Tobias, are born to a deeply troubled Marisha Chardin under the diabolical oversight of a man, known only as Luther, who possesses a darkened presence. Though seeing the fulfillment of his own desires in young Jesse, Luther eventually orchestrates the demise of each child as a world now devoid of hope moves on.
Out of the remote depths of Africa, enter into the arena a mysterious soul, Jimi T. Expo – musician, philosopher, and spiritual leader. Seemingly in a matter of weeks, this man (reverently dubbed the Mystic King) injects the world with a ray of hope – a needed dose of light. Utilizing the power of song, Jimi T. offers his message of peace, liberation, and a true heaven right here on earth to a global audience, all in preparation for our final stage of existence – the full assimilation of mankind into the Collective Soul of the universe.
With the rapid decay of organized religion, and a germane response manifested in The Way of Mystic Realism (a belief system based on relative spiritualism and social truths) the world is left to ponder the question: Is this man the Christ – the promised Messiah who has come to set humanity right? Or might he indeed have a darker purpose? One man, Nathan Page, steps into center stage; facing the maelstrom through the eyes of an agnostic, but with a heart perhaps somewhere else.
The scene has been set in an all-too-familiar, frighteningly contemporary time period. In the final analysis, will mankind choose good over evil? Or perhaps even worse, will he even be able to tell the difference?
To whom… or what… will dominion be granted?
