“Imagine a world like George Orwell’s 1984 only without even the pretense of the slightest benefit for mankind. That’s the world that Anthony D. Flores paints a picture of in Lazarus Rising. The powers of evil—pure unadulterated Devil-spawned evil—don’t even bother to try to mask their intention of delivering hell on Earth. Forrest Vance seems determined to completely erase every trace of love, kindness or any other value from humanity. It’s quite a jarring ride.”
--Rick Roberts, multi-platinum artist and author of Song Stories and Other Left-Handed Reflections
“All it takes for evil to flourish is for a good man to do nothing.” —Edmund Burke
