- Customer Reviews:
"An enthralling thriller ... Wilson infuses his terrifying plot with intricate twists and turns, all totally credible."
--Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
"This is a sledgehammer of a novel, slamming away at the foundations of modern cult religions until nothing is left but rubble to be carted away. It's a powerful story ... An intense experience for those who can take it."
"Revelation will test your talent at turning pages quickly. As you go, you will be reading a story about a story that holds the key to one man's salvation and accounts for another man's warped and violent attempts to establish new truths based on the power of storytelling. Revelation is a cautionary tale about the intensity and demands of religion, except 'cautionary' and 'tale' both sound much too tame. Follow Harden Campbell on this harrowing journey and watch your knuckles whiten as you try and hold on."
--Mark Stevens, Denver Post best-selling author and Colorado Book Award winner
"Revelation isn't a book you should begin at night if you plan on sleeping."
--The Big Thrill
"Suspenseful words will keep the reader turning page after page, long after the light by his/her bed should have been extinguished. Carter Wilson's third novel, The Comfort of Black, won four literary awards."
"Revelation is one book that will have your pulse racing."
"This novel grabs the reader by the throat, becoming tighter and tighter as the story progresses making breathing difficult and fast page-turning a must. There are twists and turns galore, and the grip doesn't lighten up until the very end. Wow, Mr. Wilson."
"Carter Wilson's Revelation is a thriller with a capital T."
"a dark and brooding thriller."
--The Denver Post
"[Revelation] offers fascinating insight into leader-follower dynamics, showing us how easily faith and trust can be misplaced by us and abused by those we allow to be in charge."
--Quiet Fury Books

Coyote didn't care about others only about his next conquest. "I'm going to be a great man, or I'll be a horrible man. But I can't be both." After reading an excerpt of Harden's English lit paper on religions, Coyote decided to test it. An experiment, he called it. He wanted to play a messiah of sorts. He was convincing. A carnival barker with fancy parlor tricks. Coyote needed followers. To see how many apostles he could convince. A new religion. The Revelation. However, with too much control comes chaos. With Coyotes' level of narcissism, came danger. If you no longer followed, you would be eliminated.
~ An intense and pulsating diary of a madman. Of those willing to follow and those that dare to resist. Incredibly written, where the characters come to life. Captivating until the end.
