NEW REVIEW: Mylow Young - Against The Gates of Hell
Mylow Young - Against The Gates of Hell - Available Now! - 3 out of 5 books -
Two brothers, Kerby and Herby (Junior) Wilson, are twins of same parents raised in the same household
with the same morals. Both travel the
same path, seek careers as police officers, marry GOD-fearing women, witness
gruesome scenes on the job, and take life-altering losses. When these brothers come to the fork in the
road and a decision must be made, Herby continues on the right path, while
Kerby takes a deathly, risky left. Kerby
finds himself selling everything chasing that high, that demon who's voice is
taking over his entire being. He’s lost
so much and every time he thinks he’s the author of his destiny, that voice
whispers something in his ear and the craving that
dominates all of his senses and demands to be fed is back. Meanwhile, his brother counts his blessings
as he continues on with life while looking condescendingly at his brother and
the bad choices that he continues to make.
Against the Gates of Hell proved to be a tedious
read aligned with realistic actions, reactions, consequences and results. The depiction of the struggle between the
addict and the addiction was very well portrayed. After reading for a while, the journey proved
to repetitive as well as the thought. It’s the same song and dance, just a
different day. The author orchestrated
good versus evil, God versus Satan, yes versus no, and love versus self-destruction. They are all too real, with too many living this life in the pits of hell by choice. If Kerby wasn’t tired of his lifestyle, I
sure as heck was. Against The Gates of hell was too long and drawn out. Reviewed by Tazzyt2bossye for Urban Reviews Order your copy of Against The Gates of Hell today!
