Book Description

Imagine an alternate reality that appears, on the surface, just like our own. However, in this reality, the white light famously reported at the end of our lives is not an escape or deliverance -- it is a trap. A creature calling itself God in a parallel dimension consumes the souls of humans, devouring their energy to sustain itself. This is the reality that Cipher, Han, Natalie and Father Hurley inhabit in The God Killers. Each has had near death experiences (NDE's) and each was resuscitated before their souls were consumed, coming back to Earth horrified by the truth: there is no exit. 
Now they must attempt the only course of action available to them: they must kill God. With the help of satanic messages decoded from the nonsensical ramblings of the possessed, the group must evade ghosts and demons on their mission to not only save their lives, but, more importantly, their afterlives as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the concept September 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a book about a God that is not at all what we think of him... The new concept of God introduced is quite an interesting one. This is not a religious book at all by the way, even if God is involved. It's a really good book for those who like ghost stories with a little bit of paranormal, but not too much super power and stuff. I enjoyed it a lot and it was very hard for me to stop reading when I needed to.

Only three things bugged me (SPOILERS here): first, I did not like how technology was the solution to a ''supernatural'' problem. It didn't feel right. Secondly, and this is not a very important thing, I don't get why Nathalie's child aged (from not even born to 6 years old) while every other ghosts and spirits didn't... Also, this is the third book I've read from this author and I don't like how no character ever truly dies. Honestly, I wasn't even sad when one of them died because I knew he would come back in some way...

Overall, I did like the book and I do think that it deserves 5 stars. I would recommend it to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different yet Entertaining December 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
With a setting and writing style very different from the Post-Human universe, The God Killers is a standalone tale about a small team seeking to kill God. Yes, you heard me right. In this book, God is quite the malevolent deity that actually means harm to humanity, not help. The Bible has been interpreted completely incorrectly, and there are a few people, like Cipher (the book's protagonist) and his recovering-druggie sidekick, Han, who can see into alternate dimensions, giving them the ability to see ghosts, demons, angels, etc. It is through their "Third Eye" that these few humans can see God for who he really is. Since God is not really who we thought he was, our band of gun-toting heroes aren't exactly the type of heroes we'd expect, either. Though what you can expect is over-the-top action and quite funny conversations, despite some of its flaws.

For those of you who did read the Post-Human trilogy, The God Killers is not in the same category at all. You will notice familiar Simpson tropes revolving around some omnipotent authority turning out to be corrupt, characters dying and coming back to life, etc., but that's about it. No universes to craft, and no futuristic technologies to expound upon. Personally, I found the P-H trilogy to be more of a page-turner overall in the end. However, that doesn't mean you shouldn't check this book out.

In truth, I found TGK to be very entertaining. Granted, for the first 20-30% of the book I didn't completely understand what was going on, but it was fun the whole way through! Being extremely dialogue-driven, I couldn't help but get the feeling this needs to be turned into a movie with Quentin Tarantino at the helm directing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative! October 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I gave this book five stars because it was one of the most imaginative books I've read thus far! It was frightening, funny; with unforgettable characters! The book isn't for religious zealots, but for those who can think outside the box! Enjoy the ride of the story!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and thought-provoking October 25, 2013
By AliKat
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoy reading this author's work. I would consider this more fantasy than sci-fi, but it showcases and intriguing take on God and Satan and Heaven and Hell. Some would call it blasphemous, but I truly enjoyed the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Thriller that Keeps You on the Edge of Your Seat! October 7, 2013
By D. Haus
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished reading "The God Killers" and all I can say is "WOW!" The main characters are flawed but likable (well, Han is a bit of a whiner, but he gets the job done eventually), and the plot just keeps moving along without letting up. My only complaint is that I don't agree with the book being classified as horror. Even with the supernatural elements, it still felt more like an action/adventure/thriller, but that's a very small criticism.

I'm not really going to go into the plot to avoid any spoilers. It's enough to say that in this book God is a monster who consumes the souls of the dead to feed off their energy. Our heroes have seen Him and what He is, and the book is about their attempts to kill Him.

It's a great read and very hard to put down. If you like supernatural adventures then this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars I liked it!!! July 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really liked the premise of the book. So it read a little far-fetched at times like the part about the aircraft carrier heist, but overall, I really liked the idea of killing god. I think if you look at it philosophically that we tend to do this when things go wrong. I don't review books on grammatical errors as tiny as a typo so those things are minimals and petty complaints about it are a waste of time, but the story is good. If you can follow it without bringing in silly complaints, then you'll enjoy the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A neat turn on God and Everything else October 14, 2013
By Ruth M.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really like this book because it's such an interesting and, for me, unique take on God and the afterlife. I don't normally approve of such material, as my faith has enough holes in it, but putting that aside, the story was a new, fresh spin on the whole shebang. Well done, Mr. Simpson.
