CHANNILLO
Kosmogonia Book I: The Lion in the Desert
By Matthew John Benecke

Series Description:

The Kosmogonia series is a collection of five speculative fiction novels that feature a classic struggle of good versus evil set against an ever-evolving backdrop. Each novel culls from different genres, including horror, science fiction, fantasy, and supernatural thriller, creating a unique, cohesive whole from its diverse elements.

The Lion in the Desert is the first novel in the series and it introduces the primary protagonists and antagonists. It is largely a supernatural thriller with horror and occult elements. Its shifting perspectives ultimately coalesce into a unifed, climactic conclusion, leaving readers in shock of what has occurred and anticipation of all that is to come.

Novel description:

"There is a thin line between reality and the world of nightmares; for Tim Channing, that line is beginning to blur. Tormented by a recurring apocalyptic dream, Tim struggles to maintain his hold over his life as insomnia slowly overtakes him. When a supernatural encounter occurs on his way into work one morning, he finds himself questioning not only his sanity but the very nature of what is real.

In a desert bunker hidden halfway around the globe, Dr. Calvin Brody holds the end of the world in his hands. An American expatriate hellbent on revenge, Dr. Brody finds himself on the verge of fulfilling his dream of destroying the country he once called home. What began merely as a quest for vengeance though might forever alter the face and future of the planet.

Amid the ever-present threat of terror attacks on his native New York and growing tensions between global superpowers, Tim must decide whether his nightmare is merely a dream or an omen of what is to come."
