    Unfortunately, "Omen V: The Abomination" ends the series on a sour note. Gordon McGill's writing remains solid, but there's little energy left in the tale. It takes almost 100 pages (out of 219) for an actual Omen-style death to occur, and even then... it's disappointingly humdrum. The body count is low and almost nothing happens in the story. Damien's pouty offspring (unimaginative named 'Damien II') makes one last attempt at world domination, while our hero, a Hemingway-type writer researching a book about the Thorn family, tries to figure out how to work a high-tech word processor. The (anti)climax reads like a watered-down version of the "Omen IV" ending, which was only so-so to begin with. What's most interesting about the book is that it takes place after a portion of the planet has been destroyed by atomic bombs. McGill gives us a few intriguing glimpses of what life might be like in this post-apocalyptic world (weird weather patterns, mass starvation, political chaos, religious fundamentalism), but it's never fully developed. Which is too bad, because at least we haven't seen that stuff a dozen times before.

    This book was an abomination.

    Weak if not downright terrible. Why didn't they just end this story in part four?

    Thank god this is the last one, because these books (especially the ones not based on the films) were not good. Plus, he manages to fuck up his own continuity from the previous book.

    Took itself way too seriously. The prior book, Armageddon 2000, was fun but this one is a nope.

    A good finish to a great series. The first three books were the best but still the last two were a good read.

    Not a bad conclusion to the Omen series. Kinda wish the ending wasn't so abrupt though...
