“The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins.” -Edgar Allan Poe
Louis Sedah, also known as The Angel of Death, is a mass murderer who purposely gets himself captured and sent to the super maximum security prison in Colorado, The Spookhouse. He has every intention of meeting up with six other psychos, that he has hand picked very carefully. While inside the prison and making his plans known to his other associates, Louis sets up a meeting with reporter, David Milton. Nothing he does is accidental and his selection of David is no coincidence. It is not long before a prison break happens and the world begins to discover how horrific these escapees can behave.
The other damaged souls that create havoc soon realize who and what they are motivated by, which triggers a shift in the story. Among the villainous ensemble David Milton, who has always considered himself to be a decent human. Time with this group will test how accurate his opinion of himself actually is, as he is taken captive during the escape.
The World on Fire is an excellent thriller laced with examples of the horror most people are capable of. Especially when led by a monster of a man. Think of mixing Jim Jones, Charles Manson and The Devil himself into one powerful force. Now you have an idea of just how intense our main antagonist truly is. Nothing of value, no morals and highly devoted to actually doing just what the title suggests. setting the world on fire.
Sheldon Woodbury is a top flight talent who’s written an excellent tale here. His writing begins and upholds a pace that kept me reading and enjoying the spectacle. It never for a moment drags on. In my opinion , this book is a legitimate standout.
