I don’t care about the planned apocalyptic nightmare because the characters are so loathsome. Jeremy in particular is a foul perverted misogynist who demands Carol have sex with him, lusts after his host’s wife and thinks Carol enjoyed being raped by an eldritch abomination during the book‘s pitiful big climax. Carol still marries him at the end of the book. This novel was ridiculous, foul, offensive, racist and sexist. It is an utter failure so don’t read it.
