The Last Plague Sep 4, 2008
A mysterious girl is brought into the ER. She is mutilated. One of her ovaries has been surgically removed. The other has turned hard and black. Soon after, other young girls are found, all with black ovaries. Later on in the story, we learn that they all had the AIDS virus as well.
These black ovaries, the mountain people, secret medical experiments in Nazi Germany, and the creation of the AIDS virus. Is there a link? So begins a mystery that will change perception of everything. It's a conspiracy beyond all comprehension.
The Last Plague is an incredibly detailed work. The cast of characters is vast, each with secrets from their past and valuable pieces to the overall puzzle. A solid premise. Great for those that really want to dig into a deep story with a web of intriguing plot threads.
Great Book! Sep 1, 2008
I love when a book opens up with a dark mystery stirring your thought life before you even finish the first chapter. That is what I found in this outstanding novel by, Glen E. Page. A young girl is brought into the ER covered in blood. Dr. Douglas Hunter finds that one of her ovaries is gone and the other is hard and black. When other young girls are discovered with the same Dr. Hunter realizes something sinister is going on. Our caring doctor does not understand at first the danger that he is putting himself and his entire family in. As he probes deeper into this mystery he uncovers things that send tremors in every area of his life.
The box that is opened concerning this mystery is full of vile, and shrouded in deception, mystery and secrets that dare not even be whispered. From family history to war crimes in Nazi Germany, supernatural beings, and military intervention, the answer to what is happening to these young girls is far more sinister than anyone could possible imagine. What a ride.
I really enjoyed this book. Our author did an exceptional job of layering mystery upon mystery. He craft fully introduced each player and the role they had bringing with them more mystery and questions, giving just enough answers to keep you reading. The characters were both intriguing and sinister, loveable and detestable, but all needed to fulfill the drama that was playing out. Of course we are left with a cliff-hanger here and have to wait until the next book to see what will transpire, but Dr. Page definitely gives you more than enough storyline to leave you wanting more. Is this truly the beginning of the end and why were young girls ovaries stolen? I have to know, and you will too after completing this read.
Well written, page turning read. One you do not want to miss.
A plausible work sure to please those who enjoy the genre Aug 18, 2008
"When God called Moses to free the Israelite slaves from the Egyptians
God gave him eleven vials. Each vial's release caused a plague. After the release of the tenth vial the firstborn son of each Egyptian family died. The Pharaoh then released the Israelites from bondage and Moses never used the eleventh vial. To protect if from evil forces, he hid the eleventh vial in the Ark of the Covenant. But today Lucifer wants this vial. He knows if he controls the eleventh vial, the earth will become his. This vial will bring about the Apocalypse, and led to the world's final battle, Armageddon. For the release of the eleventh vial will cause 'The Last Plague'."
It is July 6, 1986 in Stanley, Idaho when the circumstances recorded on the pages of The Last Plague book one the Apocalypse Series begin.
Apprehension shone bright in the girl's eyes. Overhead the fluorescent lights reflected off tears rolling down her bloodstained face.
Abandoned on a country road, a young girl is brought into Dr. Douglas Hunter's ER one night. Her abdomen has been cut open.
Nurse Edith Crockett threw a sterile surgical drape over the girl. She wondered out loud how a black child had been left up on Yankee Fork. The only thing the girl had said was something about a beautiful lady and some tigers.
Before long Dr. Hunter realizes the girl is missing an ovary, the other ovary is black and withered.
And then more bodies of young girls are found also missing ovaries. Dr. Hunter tries to find out how or why this medical condition came about; before long he is thrown into a world of not answered inquiry and perilous conclusions as he and his family of adopted nonconformists discover they are being unintentionally thrust into a sinister scheme of government stratagem and biblical divination.
As Dr. Hunter searches for causes for this mysterious plague settling over so many, he and his family begin to come across disconcerting connection with their own at times painful pasts. Then they learn there is something about war crimes in Nazi Germany and events from as long ago as the days when Christ was alive.
The Last Plague the Apocalypse Series is a chronicle of a collection of social nonconformists and their voyage along a course leading to the Apocalypse. Ultimately they will come to the final battle of Armageddon. The narrative is written in apocalyptic manner centered on an epidemic of infection and contamination filled with coarse aspects of health ambiguity and uncertain conduct. Sun Valley, a lady with wolves, a jealous husband and a fight at a dance, children of Lucifer, a high meadow, an investigation, a mole, bending space, former army intelligence operatives, and a confiscation of bodies all carry the reader along on a bumpy read.
Hunter's investigation attracts the attention of a group of ruthless people with mysterious powers who are determined to keep the plague a secret. But as more secrets come to light, Dr. Hunter realizes his family may be facing the last plague, the beginnings of the Apocalypse.
Filled with compelling well drawn characters, settings filled with detail, premonition and foreboding, in addition to a storyline unlike others; Dr Page has taken an interesting hypothesis based on eleven vials containing plagues as the premise for his work. Opening of each vial in the past has released a new plague causing death and destruction. The last vial was never opened. It was guarded in the Ark of the Covenant.
Each of the characters portrayed in the book is presented with their own story of personal recollection, life and battles in addition to the primary plot line. Writer Page indicates that, that last vial containing one last plague, is the thing desired by Satan in his quest to control the earth. And, that is the principle behind The Last Plague, the first of a seven-part series. Page relates that the first three books have already been completed.
Writer Page is a compelling story teller, he has produced a plausible work sure to please those who enjoy the genre. Writing is well crafted, apprehension is offset with humor, characters are believable for the genre.

This book is well written and it keeps your attention. I couldn't put it down. Several characters are introduced and it is exciting to see how they are linked together. As a young girl is brought to a hospital after having her abdomen cut open, the author's words are intriguing in how he keeps you wanting to see what happens to her next. He takes you on a journey through her life to see if she survives. This is a must read.
great start to a new series May 14, 2008
Dr. Hunter is asked to operate on a young girl who was abandoned on a rural road in Idaho. She has been cut open and is missing an ovary, the other ovary is black and whithered. The doctor tries to find out why this medical condition might happen and is plunged into a world of unanswered questions and dangerous outcomes.
I heard that this series was getting published about a year ago and I was interested in what it was all about. The book provides mix of Science Fiction and government conspiracy coverups. For a first time author The Last Plague was a great page turner. I can't wait for the second book in the series to come out and to see the next part of the story unfold.
