In a post-apocalyptic world, a warrior and his family are driven underground, fighting for their very survival.
When they do emerge, the futuristic planet they discover is very different from the one they left behind. Ruled by an evil presence which dominates and controls what is left of mankind, Earth has been reduced to a violent place of darkness, grief and destruction.
I call him HIM follows the journey of this unnamed warrior as he loses both his family and his mind. As he hits rock bottom, all he can think of is his insatiable yearning for revenge until he meets a young girl called Angelica who shows him the true power of faith. Her youth, innocence and strength of character reminds him of everything he has lost and the things which really matter.
But as the armies of the world rise up for the ultimate battle of good versus evil, can Angelica help him regain his sanity and rediscover himself before it is too late?
Author Scott W Kimak takes the classic theme of good and evil and gives it a modern twist in this inspiring tale of the importance of keeping hope in the bleakest of circumstances.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My upbringing studying the martial arts and learning about the struggle between good and evil. I wanted to show a dark future of what our world could turn into if we aren't careful.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Many of the characters are based on actual people from my life. I imagined how they would cope with such a dire future.
It was like a mouth of impenetrable blackness, as the young girl entered the damp, cold snake that wound its way under the worms and other bugs that crawled above. The echoes of footsteps were the only thing to relieve the loneliness inside the giant serpent as their sound rebounded off the walls. Shadows dissolved as quickly as they appeared, giving her nothing but darkness to look forward to.
The gloom of the unknown penetrated the tunnels as it penetrated Katie’s mind. Step by step, her feet splashed through the water and shit of the bowels of the city. Her only comfort in the darkness was her lighter, which barely benefited her vision. However, humans have a great ability to adapt, and her eyes had begun to grow accustomed to the black tunnels. She could now see several feet in front of her and occasionally even further when she came across another sewer drain.
On these occasions, she would pull herself up and peer through the drain to check her location. Down in the dark, it was easy to lose your way, and she wanted to make sure she was still headed in the right direction. She could see hundreds of demons and slaves on the streets, moving about in their daily activities. The demons were forcing the slaves to rebuild the city. They cracked their whips, punishing and prodding the slaves into obedience. What other choice did they have? The freedom of choice no longer existed. The only freedom that remained was the freedom to die, and in her short life, Katie had seen this freedom carried out many times. Suicide was the one choice the demons could not control, and several people she knew had preferred this means of escape.
As Katie continued moving through the dark sewers her thoughts turned to the past, and the tunnels she traversed bore into her soul. They opened the wet sore that will not heal, festering and growing into something she had tried to forget. Maybe it was the lack of light that let these cold memories return, or could it be the solitude and monotony that cracked her heart and bled emotion.
