3rd in the Hellgate: London Trilogy
on October 8, 2008
This last installment in the Hellgate: London trilogy follows three people. Templar Knight Simon Cross has been trying to protect civilians from the invading demons as well as try to keep them fed. As scientists discover some startling revelations from the Goetia Manuscript, not only do the Templars gain a powerful weapon against the demons, but also a hope of a hidden Truth that may save Earth from devastation.
Leah Creasey's secret organization allows her to try to convince Simon Cross to lead the Templars and form an alliance. But she discovers Simon has hid something from her. And when Leah is captured by a demon with a powerful machine, no one is safe once they fall asleep.
Warren Schimmer has once again been reluctantly recruited by a powerful evil force, this time the legendary Lilith. Warren trusts no one, but must depend on his companions to help keep each other alive.
With the action and intensity heating up, this latest installment is the most exciting yet. The demons are meaner and stronger, the humans are getting more desperate, and the Goetia Manuscript begins spilling its secrets just in the knick of time. Odom has created wonderfully fascinating characters, each with troubling decisions that have to be made, with lives on the line. But with all of humanity struggling for survival from the demon infestation, can separate human factions join forces to discover the Truths, the only hope against the demons?
As events culminate towards a climactic ending, it soon becomes obvious that the entire story cannot be resolved in this latest book. I really hope that Pocket Books decides to pick up another trilogy to follow the hunt for the Truths storyline. This has been a fabulous series based on the computer game. And author Mel Odom, has brought the story alive on print, artfully blending fantasy, futuristic science fiction, and intense military action.
