"What have we here?" cried Lyndon, noticing Anthony for the first time, crouching next to Marion on the other side of her chair. Drink in hand he strode past her, still sitting, and stood there, looming over the boy squatting beside her.

"I must measure his skull," he said, glaring down at him. "And white hair no less. Let me see what you look like." He reached down and lifted the boy's chin, forcing him to show his face. Carefully he examined him as Marion watched horrified. Suddenly she saw what Lyndon saw. The boy is an Elvis. "I'll have to take a DNA sample."

"No, you won't!" she cried, springing up from her chair. Taller than Lyndon, she loomed over him. He let go of Anthony and stepped back. "You're not allowed to take anything from my property without my consent. Those are your laws, not mine."

An orphan uprooted by war, Anthony journeys to Kingdom City, the center of a would-be empire based on violence, slavery and a phony post-apocalyptic religion dictated by an ever-changing Now Testament, only to discover he's an Elvis, a clone of the long-dead pop star, the King of Rock and Roll.

About this Book

Elvis Rex follows the adventures of young Anthony in the heartland of a barren North America depopulated by a mysterious plague.

After the Army of the Lord destroys his village, Anthony journeys down the river to the capital of the fake millennial kingdom based in Kingdom City, the center of a would-be empire based on organized violence, slavery, and a phony post-apocalyptic religion dictated by an ever-changing Now Testament.

The horrors and the truth he encounters compel him to flee for his life.

A Review

Feel free to use all or part of the following, and edit to suit. This content was prepared for your use. We ask no acknowledgement of any kind.

Larry Kickham's novel, Elvis Rex, is one both chilling and haunting. At the same time, it shows the power of the human spirit; humans struggling to come to grips with their place in the world.

An orphan uprooted by war, Anthony journeys to Kingdom City, the center of a would-be empire based on violence, slavery and a phony post-apocalyptic religion dictated by an ever-changing Now Testament, only to discover he's an Elvis, a clone of the long-dead pop star, the King of Rock and Roll.

Anthony flees for his life, encountering danger at every turn. The reader is adeptly drawn into his deep despair and loneliness. Where he ends up makes for a driving tale.

This is truly an original read you'll not forget.
