” … deep, frightening and full of suspense …” ****

World War III turned the world into a post-apocalyptic field of debris. The few survivors have gathered in small communities and struggle within the ruins and devastated land for their meager livelihood. Marauding gangs, wild animals, deadly radiation and the hellish legacies of war are just some of the dangers facing them.

In Rome, a mad priest is gathering a horde of raiders and his influence has already spread across Europe. His disciples murder and pillage in the name of his mad gospel, and few have the strength to stand in their way.

In the midst of anarchy, despair and decay, there arises a conflict, the outcome of which will determine the future path of mankind.

How far will one go to survive?

How far will one go in the name of the good cause?

Reader´s Voices (Referring to the German edition)

– I’ve read a lot of post-apocalyptic books and I especially like this series. It’s written in an exciting way and you really get drawn in. At first it may seem challenging that there are two narrative strands, but in the following volumes it becomes obvious why. Can recommend all without reservation …

– Finally, an end-time epic in which the protagonists are not too stupid to close the door behind them and are then overrun by zombies. If you like decent plots, you really can enjoy this novel and enjoy the apocalypse!

– Thrilling with a desire for more was clearly my first emotion after I finished the first book.

– All-out recommendation! I stumbled over it because I am from Frankfurt … and what can I say – I find it very cool to rediscover the city of Frankfurt in an “alternative” scenario … but besides Frankfurt the work is also very successful! Thumbs up!

Whenever I need to communicate in one sentence what The Gospel of Madness is all about, I usually say something like:
“It’s like The Walking Dead, but without zombies and in Germany.”
However, that is not quite the whole truth, because The Gospel of Madness has got a very own and quite dark edge.
But of course, there are parallels. The destroyed, post-apocalyptic world, the various groups of survivors with their very own interests and ways of dealing with the collapse. The almost complete decline of civilization, the relapse into archaic behavior, and the inner conflicts that arise in the characters – all these images of decay and the brutalization that make postapocalyptic settings so exciting.
Similar to “Day By Day Armageddon,” my story is initially written in first-person perspective (changes later on), but the inspirations are a bit more diverse. We have the elements of the zombie genre, we have Mad Max and S.t.a.l.k.e.r, we have some “Metro 2033” and much more.
All this mixes up into an arc that actually fits more to a fantasy novel. The quest, the dangerous way to Mordor – everything that I think is awesome, can also be found here, told in its own way.
Rugged, tragic and drastic, sometimes over-the-top, cruel, bloody and somehow noir.
