Edge Of The End by Suren Fant [ 1 stars ]

From the Description:

Jonathan wakes up in a desert, his past wiped from his head. He’s alone having no clue who and what he is, where he has come from and where he should go. There is only one way – forward when he spots a little town in the distance.

Empty streets, old houses, the town seems abandoned. There’s no one to ask for help, there’s nowhere to go. Jonathan wanders the town in search of any sign of life trying to bring his lost memories back, but odd visions haunt him from time to time. Soon Jonathan comes to the realization that he’s moments from death as absolutely evil dwells in the town seeking fresh souls to suck up. The seemingly dead town is only outwardly empty.

Grey skies, no sun, no days and no nights. The town is stuck in time. With only one entrance and one exit, but the way leading to the exit is filled with creations that Jonathan has never envisioned, even in his worst nightmares.

Who is he? Who brought him here? With a female resident – Elizabeth, Jonathan has to work his way through the horrendous town, figure out his past and find the exit.

Let me start off by saying that I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I spent a good bit of this book wondering wait, what? Every time I thought I knew what was going on the main character received a new superpower and had to rescue the damsel in distress. Because evidently the only strong women in this town were demons. I found the storyline hard to follow and when I could follow it it was condescending and preachy. And if you hadn't figured out that we are all sinners destined for hell by the end, there is a handy authors note to let you know. I just can't recommend this one to anyone. 1 star.
