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.

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.
