Well-known mystery author Anne Perry ventures into fantasy for the second time with COME ARMAGEDDON (3). Five hundred years have passed since the events that drove Tathea, the Empress of Shinabar, to wander the Lost Lands spreading the teachings of the mystical Book. The Book foretells the final confrontation with the Great Enemy, and the immortal Tathea's destiny is to prepare humanity for this battle. Now the time she has dreaded is approaching, and Tathea awaits the Warriors prophesied to lead the forces of the Light. Continuing her exploration of the origins of good and evil and the search for truth, Perry weaves philosophical and spiritual symbolism into Tathea's quest; however, the characters do not have the depth generally evident in Perry's mysteries, and the thinly veiled religiosity of the novel may turn some off. (Sep., 512 pp., $24.95)
