Wogan, Top 50 Amazon Reviewer
The battles between Good and Evil can often take place in America’s governmental buildings, but it may turn a bit more literal soon enough. Gog & Magog: The Devil’s Descendants is a Biblical fantasy and thriller as Jerry Pollock tells of Satan’s plots to bring about Armageddon through manipulating the world into a war of the means that has not been seen before. The crisis grows so fast that it seems the death of the world is inevitable, with many of the faithful waiting for God to step in. Gog & Magog is a nonstop and fascinating thriller, not to be overlooked.
John Taylor, Reviewer — The Midwest Book Review
Gog and Magog has the potential to break new ground in literature in the tradition of Philip Roth’s effortlessly smart, dialogue driven novel Deception.
ForeWord Clarion Reviews
From the Bible books of 1 Chronicles through Ezekiel to Revelations, Gog and Magog have been noted as powers of evil prophesied to play major roles in the final days of mankind. For example, in Ezekiel 38:16, these malevolent monstrosities are depicted as doomed pawns on the chessboard of life. “You will advance against my people Israel like a cloud that covers the land. In days to come, Gog, I will bring you against my land, so that the nations may know me when I am proved holy through you before their eyes.” In Revelations 19:19, we are foretold of their disastrous end. “Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage war against the rider on the horse and his army. But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. The rest were killed with the sword coming out of the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.” In Jerry Pollock’s new thriller, Gog and Magog: The Devil’s Descendants, these ancient adversaries of God take on a novel dimension with their appearances on the world’s stage, where past, present, and future collide in the final battle between good and evil. In Pollock’s story, nothing less than the President of the United States–Malcolm Yale Macorley–ascends to world dominance by way of a covert operation called “Code Name Daniel,” becoming a hero to the entire world, even as America slides toward destruction in a downward spiral of decay. Code Name Daniel drives the President toward his messianic destiny while raising him to a virtual Godhead, but his pedestal rests on unsteady ground. In the wake of his path of destruction, a palette of characters that would make a Hollywood casting director envious take the reader on a roller coaster ride culminating in a duel to the death and an electrifying conclusion. The play’s the thing wherein Pollock catches the conscience of the king, and readers will find that Gog and Magog: The Devil’s Descendants unfolds as a play, for the author’s original vision was to present the story by way of actors. “I wrote the book in play format,” Pollack reveals. “A small part of the book became a stage play produced off Broadway in New York in July 2010.” The full-length story develops over 85 chapters spread across 320 pages, carefully blending fact, fiction, and Biblical prophesies seamlessly into a tale that eerily echoes present day newspaper headlines and the often mentioned fear that our world leaders are nothing less than disciples of the Devil. Pollack’s premise unfurls as an entirely believable scenario in this era of secret societies such as The World Affairs Council, the Builderberger Group, the Trilateral Commission, and their combined messages of “global engagement.” The frightening fact of our world mashed beneath the iron thumbs of powerful men and women seems ominously possible. Pollock’s story mirrors real life rumors about those men and women who might have forfeited their souls to the Prince of Darkness in exchange for a flight through fame and fortune, or who cling to clout and control in their fleeting flings as King of the Mountain. When President Clinton was given the Prince of Peace award by the World Affairs Council of San Antonio at Trinity University, the line between Pollock’s fiction and probable fact blurred. Uncanny innuendoes have a way of becoming terrifying truths. In Gog and Magog: The Devil’s Descendants, Satan surfaces on a quest to bring about the End of Days. Traveling forward in time, Satan finds himself in present-day America, where the President and his son, Cain, are his descendants. Standing between Satan and his unholy mission, Abel Slobodkin, a righteous young man, and his future mother-in-law, Dr. Elizabeth Corsini, watch powerless as the President wins reelection in 2020. Cain becomes his powerful Chief of Staff, and Cain and Abel are propelled toward a duel against the backdrop of the Arlington National Cemetery in a harrowing climax that recalls Adam’s sons more than 5,000 years ago. Everything old is new again.
