Unholy Advent: Deception Of The Christ

Darius was supposed to save lives... but the NATO developed android had other ideas when its eyes were opened on a world they had last looked upon from high above Golgotha; a vantage point reserved for birds - and those upon the cross. Those who witness the miracles and atrocities committed by the machine must decide - Have the prophecies of a second coming been fulfilled, or is this a demon?The world is a troubled place, leading many to describe our era as being among the "end times." Billboards sprouting on the horizon along nearly every desolate stretch of highway across our nation declare that "He Shall Return." Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speaks openly of his desire to usher in the arrival of The Mahdi - a spiritual leader prophesized to rid the world of wrongdoing and injustice, eventually redeeming Islam as the one true faith. People who identify themselves as Jewish pray for the consruction of Ezekiel's Temple, a sacred place of worship promised in scripture to come into being during the age of The Mashiach.In the epic novel Unholy Advent: Deception Of The Christ, all three will of the world's prominent religions will see their wishes fulfilled... A motley crew of the world's most renowned Cyberneticists have reached the end of a century's long quest; the culmination of thousands of years of evoloution, hundreds of years of technological advances, decades of development and planning, years of programing and fabrication, and countless thousands of hours in a secluded NATO installation.Here, in a frozen Siberian wasteland, the greatest minds of the world have assembled a human analog intended to save the lives of thousands. It will allow a platoon of soldiers to conqueor far away lands from the comfort of American soil; the Predator Drone with arms, legs and an assault rifle. What's more, the machine has been programmed with a basic level of awareness that will allow it to continue on an objective even in the event of signal jamming or satellite failure.During the first session of full-scale testing the machine experiences a bit of a revelation when it begins to think for itself. When the mechanical eyelids of the prototype "Darius" are opened upon the Earth for the very first time, they see a world that is all too familiar... a world these eyes had last looked upon from high above Golgotha; a vantage point reserved for the birds -- and those upon the cross.The journey that follows will take twelve chosen disciples (of all walks of faith) through a post-apocolyptic world towards the promised land; the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. What these individuals become acutely aware of along the way, however, is that each of them is sent with direction that suits their own respective faith. Like oil and water, their hopes and dreams of the New World do not mix well between them... they have been dispatched along a path towards one final holy war that will decide the fate of Mankind in its entirety -- if they follow the orders of their mechanical messiah.Who is he? What does he really want? Is the machine possessed by a demon bent on the destruction of all humanity, or is this truly the Second Coming whispered of in houses of worship around the globe?
