Age of the Fallen: Origins

(New Series of Blogs on the Origins and Inspiration for AGE OF THE FALLEN by Mark Olmos, a spiritual thriller)

"No doubt, the first ideas for this book came from the temptation of Jesus by Satan in the wilderness. In Matt. 4:1-11 Jesus faces three temptations from the devil and in response to each attack Jesus quotes scripture. Since the Bible is called the "sword of the Spirit" elsewhere in the New Testament I saw the whole episode as a sword fight between them.

So one day I sat at Starbucks and wrote a paraphrase of the passage making it out to be a samurai sword fight between Jesus and Satan. Although this sword fight doesn't appear in the first book (there are two more coming), it lays the foundation for what Aiko and her friends have to do to push back the evil that is trying to take over their city.

In it's most simple form, what you will find in AGE OF THE FALLEN is the battle between truth and lies. Satan and his demons work in lies and the followers of the Master wield truth. And when they oppose each other...the sparks start to fly!
