CHANNILLO
Hellbound
By Christopher Waltz

Series Description:

"I will execute great vengeance on them with wrathful rebukes. Then they will know that I am the Lord, when I lay my vengeance upon them.” -Ezekiel 25:17

Little does anyone know, the end of the world is about to begin in a small town in southern Indiana, and a sarcastic diner-owner named John may be the world’s only hope to keep from being sucked into Hell…

After a large sinkhole devours Ezekiel, Indiana’s historic gazebo in the middle of the night, John awakens to discover that nearly all the citizens of his small town have begun acting out their most prominent of the seven deadly sins, while those not affected have packed up and abandoned the town with little to no notice at all. Over the next few days, John and his best friend navigate their way through people they once knew acting in unimaginable ways, a group of Bible-thumping citizens convinced the sinners of Ezekiel must pay the ultimate price, and a TV evangelist offering his expertise as a way to cleanse the town of evil… for a price, all while realizing John may be the only person on the planet with the ability to stop the town, and eventually the rest of the world, from going straight to Hell.

The events of HELLBOUND continue in part 2, HELLION:

The end was just the beginning...

It's been six months since a diner-owner from Indiana sacrificed himself to stop the entire world from being sucked into Hell, and things have changed drastically. Faith has been rediscovered, bringing with it mandatory church-attendance laws and dangerously hypocritical hate groups hell-bent on converting everyone to a new form of Christianity referred to by some as “Jesuslam”

But Jude Vale thinks it's all a load of crap.

Having been sent away to a prestigious Christian boarding school in Washington, Jude has made it his life's goal to defy any and all religious laws put in place since "The Ezekiel Incident," to the point of being placed on a watch list by the nation's most notorious religious group, MoOS. It isn't long before Jude finds himself segregated from his peers and questioning his own sanity when everything he says begins to come true and those around him (friend and foe alike) begin dying in inexplicable accidents.

And when a new student with a dark secret appears on St. Dunstan's campus, Jude begins begins to realize he may be the antichrist--the one human destined to bring forth the end times and put the world at risk of apocalyptic destruction... again.

Notes:

Ezekiel, Indiana is a fictional town, and any similarities between it, any of its inhabitants, or the events in HELLBOUND are purely coincidental. Also, while much of the story has roots in the Bible, I never have, nor will I ever claim to be an expert... or anywhere close to an expert... or anyone who has even read the entire Bible... so, take everything I write with a grain of salt. I'm not trying to offend anyone. I just wanted to write a fun horror-comedy about the apocalypse!
