Editorial Reviews

Review

"APOCALYPSE CULT may sound like a religious novel of the end times; but in fact it's so much more: a gripping thriller packed with twists and turns of plot that are powerful, unpredictable, and compelling... Thriller writing at its finest!"
- Midwest Book Review

"This was a fast read and definitely piqued my interest to find out what other adventures the author has in store for the Gray Spear Society. Readers of thrillers and action adventure will thoroughly enjoy this book. Recommended."
- Two Ends of the Pen

"The Society might be as unruly and chaotic as those they face. Their members have dark secrets, foul tempers, and struggle with their own survival. It was a captivating read of mystery, fantasy, and the imperfection of dark fantasy that I enjoy. The boundaries these characters cross and the problems they face are as inhuman as they become. I look forward to reading more."
- Literary Sweet

"I recommend this book and have suggested it to friends. If you like action and books that make you think, go get it!"
- Divine Books

Fast paced action/adventure with a major link to the paranormal. Quick, entertaining read but the character development was somewhat superficial and I found it difficult to relate to the indiscriminate killing.

The justification that anyone who discovered the identities of the 'enforcers' had to be killed to protect their anonymity seemed insufficient to explain the killing of significant numbers of police officers, FBI, Coast Guard and other law enforcement personnel.

I just read this book off my wife's kindle. The description makes it sound religious, but it's not. It's more like hardcore action with a supernatural twist. Or maybe crime novel with holy warriors instead of cops. It's hard to describe the genre, but I liked it.

I got this for free on my kindle and I did enjoy it but there were definitely some issues. The romance aspect was too fast and wasn't needed for a first book in a series. It seemed like it could have built over time. It really seemed too forced. Other interactions between characters were also rather wooden or one-dimensional. The plot was engaging and fast paced but there were some holes. I also was disappointed in the ending - the last scenes dealing with the cult were cheesy. It is almost like the author got to a point where he/she just wanted to finish it. I will probably try the next book and see where it goes. If the character interactions get more realistic then I might continue with the whole series...

First and foremost, this is a novel driven by action, and it never lets up. Aaron Glade is a real - though not always sympathetic - protagonist on an almost believable and honest journey. He is authentic, true to himself, and smart enough to avoid the stupidities that keep me from rarely finishing thrillers. The reader is quickly drawn into his story, the plot is packed full of action, suspense and surprises. The writing is a little rough around the edges at times, but never enough to distract from the build-up to the explosive finale. If you enjoy secret societies, large scale destruction, unexpected plot twists, and an occasional sprinkle of dry humor, this is a fun read.

Aaron Glade is a PI who is hired to rescue a fifteen year-old girl from a cult. The job turns out to be less than straight forward, and Aaron's life will never be the same when he is asked to join the Gray Spear Society - a group of God's secret warriors.

Overall, this is a decent story: well-written, well-conceived, and well-executed. There is a lot of blood and death - a little too much for my taste, but still a good read. The genre for this book is difficult to categorize. There are elements of film noir, spy vs. spy, and supernatural combat - all played out by holy warriors who follow the Christian god. The main characters are described well, and each is unique. The rapid-fire pace of the action is a little dizzying and makes the reader slow down to savor the story. The drawback to this story for me was the inconsistency that as "agents of God," the characters demonstrate no empathy, bear no responsibility, and experience no repercussions for killing, maiming, or torturing. It was also hard for me to reconcile the need for secrecy with the killing of government, civil service, and law enforcement personnel.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I must say that I didn't think I would like this book when I saw the cover. But I started to hear some very positive comments from other reviewers, so my curiosity got the better of me and I started to read it. And I was hooked from the start. The premise is really interesting, a secret group of warriors who work for God. The author really draws you in with his well-developed characters and fast-paced plot. I found myself reading it every night.
As I read this, I could visualize it as a movie. The author provides such vivid descriptions of both of settings and the characters. And the characters in this are unforgettable. I cannot even tell you which one was my favorite, they were all so engaging.
I was also happy to discover that this is a series. I really want to read more stories with these characters and see what others are in those. From the author, he indicated that the others have really interesting "gifts" and he even uses his fans as inspiration for them.
If you are an action fan, this is certainly a book you will enjoy. They move from one dangerous scene to the next. The characters intelligently figure out how to get through them by the skin of their teeth. I was on the edge of my seat seeing how they would survive yet another predicament.
There is even a little romance...not too much but it sets up a very good scenario for the future installments. I love the fact that the main character's romantic interest is such a strong and flawed character. She is both scary and vulnerable.
If I "had" to pick a favorite character, I would pick Ethel. She is the boss of this little group and she is awesomely frightening. I think there is more to her story and hoping to learn more about her. I liked her because she was smart, brave, and seriously could fight.
