The Cry of Havoc

  • Dec 16, 2011

Tom Navo is about to end it all. He’s just killed his boss. Feeling that committing suicide is his only option, he jumps.
As he falls, Tom starts to regret his decision. As luck would have it, Tom lands on a balcony, broken and bruised but still alive. As fate would have it, Tom would die soon after- an innocent bystander at a convenience store robbery gone wrong.

Tom awakes in a waiting room of sorts. He’s dead and he is about to decide his eternal fate. But instead of choosing his version of Heaven like everyone else, something strange happens. Tom is sucked into another world. It’s a desolate land with unfamiliar creatures. A world where illusion becomes reality and memories can be implanted with mere words. A whole world filled with displaced individuals who do the bidding of others without even realizing that it isn’t their fight.

The Cry of Havoc has the feeling of an epic novel mixed with agility of a video game. Actually, I can see the story being an excellent video game. I’d play it. Interesting characters and lots of action built upon a really intriguing premise.

About this book


John Hennessy truly writes a masterpiece on paper. This book is complex and intriguing at the same time. It challenged my way of thinking logically and sent me into a whole new universe. The cover of the book is captivating and truly catches the reader's eye. The chapters flow nicely and are filled with action, excitement and adventure. I found this novel to be very enthralling and I felt accomplished once I had finished the entire book! What is extraordinary is that the readers are able to feel as if they are in the past and in the future in unison, not knowing if it is fantasy or reality. At first, I thought the book would be over my head, but as I got into it and read on further, the plot came together nicely and I was able to comprehend the meaning quite easily. I loved the descriptive words and imagery used in the novel as I was able to feel like I was with Tom on his journey. This novel is well thought out, very creative, and contains all the adventure, creatures, legends, and lands that a person could dream of. From dragons to kings, leprechauns, trolls, gnomes, elves, aliens, creatures and secret maps; this novel has it all. The icing on the cake is the surprise ending that you won't see coming. This is truly a book that all Science Fiction fanatics will want to pick up and not put down! -- Reviewed by Rita V for Readers Favorite -- 5/5 stars
