“Tom Navo is about to end it all. He’s just killed his boss. Feeling that committing suicide is his only option, he jumps.
As he falls, Tom starts to regret his decision. As luck would have it, Tom lands on a balcony, broken and bruised but still alive. As fate would have it, Tom would die soon after- an innocent bystander at a convenience store robbery gone wrong.
Tom awakes in a waiting room of sorts. He’s dead and he is about to decide his eternal fate. But instead of choosing his version of Heaven like everyone else, something strange happens. Tom is sucked into another world. It’s a desolate land with unfamiliar creatures. A world where illusion becomes reality and memories can be implanted with mere words. A whole world filled with displaced individuals who do the bidding of others without even realizing that it isn’t their fight.
The Cry of Havoc has the feeling of an epic novel mixed with agility of a video game. Actually, I can see the story being an excellent video game. I’d play it. Interesting characters and lots of action built upon a really intriguing premise.
