Starfall: A Novel of America's Destruction by Douglas A. Schrock

indie ebook cover

What if it was your last day? What if it was America’s? What if tomorrow you woke up only to find out that nuclear war had cost countless lives, or that the New Madrid earthquake had finally happened and had ripped a country, a continent, a world apart forever? Would your soul be ready? What if you were a vampire or a shapeshifter or an immortal or all of the above, and were able to watch the decline and fall of great nations and cities over the course of centuries? What if you were even able to witness many such cataclysmic events and even take part in them, even if you couldn’t stop them?

All of these questions and more are posed in "Starfall: A Novel of America's Destruction,” an epic comprised of both historical and mythological elements told over the course of nearly 250 years. It has vampires, it has superheroes, it has supervillains, it has world wars, it has Krakens, it has espionage, it has war and politics and music and drama and introspection. It tells the story of one very wicked, stubborn Scotsman who starts out a shrewd businessman and murderer and vampire, but eventually finds the way to God and follows Him, even as those around him sink deeper into sin and madness, indeed as great nations like America fall apart at the seams as the end of the world draws ever nearer. The book makes the important point that, while there must be grace and Heaven and forgiveness and love, there must also be justice and Hell and discipline and principles.

About The Author...

indie author

Douglas A. Schrock


Douglas A. Schrock is the author of two novels, "City of Lace: A Novel of the Christmas Truce, 1914" and "Starfall: A Novel of America's Destruction." These two books are very different because the first novel presents a call to love and peace and hope, but above all living out one's faith, especially by forgiving others, while the second novel reminds us that we all have to face the consequences of our actions, especially if we don't change. That is true of individuals, and that is true of nations, as we are seeing with our own. The book makes the case that America and the world's current political/military/economic/cultural situation will not improve, and that individuals must prioritize becoming right with God in their own daily lives. The novel uses the mythic vampire as an analogy for wickedness and selfishness in the human heart.

Mr. Schrock was born in Virginia, but has lived in both Virginia and Michigan. He is a Christian, and enjoys reading, writing, music, and travel. Two of his most meaningful experiences in life have been visiting Israel, particularly Jerusalem, and helping immigrants back home in America learn English. In both "City of Lace" and "Starfall" he has tried to defend the notion of a church that is not nationally limited or worshipful of war, and of the need to look beyond oneself to love others--even the very hard cases--and leave one's sins behind. Another common theme in both books, particularly "Starfall," is that some people will never turn from evil, and that we must accept the pain of that fact. Such an idea is controversial, but crucial.
