How curious to think that we live our lives and what with wars and religion being such big players in the lives of humans that we assume that good has won when in fact they have lost. You start to think of the world differently. I love that the story played with my head that way. I love that it's short only about 200 pages but breezes by such an easy enjoyable read. The end in particular I couldn't stop till I was done.
In addition to this interesting story point was that the Angelkillers yes they are the good guys hunting down evil would communicate in a very WOW like cyber world. The fact that this was how they stayed in touch was interesting in particular at the end with the big reveal. A story based on the age old good v evil played out in cyberspace was a fresh spin and one I really enjoyed. I like how out of the box it was, I really appreciated the uniqueness the author brought to the story.
Two things about the book. It is part one of a trilogy so character development was basic, in 200 pages the story was the focus. Not something that was bad or I could fault the author for simply that I found it more story driven than character focused. Second sometimes I found the characters confusing Azrael and Azazeal being the main issue.
I'm really looking forward to the next books in the story and hope that the good guys finally win. Yes I'm one of those people.Total must add to the TBR list.
Except, of course, in this dark age it's hard to tell who's good and who's bad. Called an Angelkiller for his long years of service in this Conflict, Jonah Mason seeks to balance the needs of his colleagues against the needs of the Good and finds himself making deals with the devil.
Future history is nicely given with short intriguing details--the "fall of Israel in 2037 to... the new Persian Empire" for example; political analysis is wisely kept to a minimum; and the Enemy has made its grab for "the power structure of humanity itself, increasingly a tool" in its hand. In this battle between Good and Evil, Evil won long ago and Good is fighting a rearguard action, but the elusive Master demands a curious mix of faith and obedience--a mix Jonah struggles to correctly attain.
When Knights step in, the Conflict ratchets up. Lives might be lost. Virtual betrayals might become real. And somewhere behind it all a wondrous truth might shine through the veil--too bright for human eyes.Read more ›
First off with Angelkiller the story begins with Mason a fighter for The Army's side who has lived for centuries. He has been in conflict with the supposed bad side known as The Enemy. The Enemy are conspiring to lure humanity into their web and away from the Creator's light( guessing God). For many years and now in the present they have achieved just that so what we know as good is really bad and vise versa. Besides Mason there are other characters that make an appearance in Angelkiller which are: Tripp, Martin, Overguard, and Meeker. Tripp is a long-time friend of Mason's who has huge loyalty toward him. Martin in particular of the group is a fascinating to read about since he's very much intrigued with computers and tech making him the computer expert, so it's interesting to see his side of things at times. Then finally there is Meeker and Overguard who while they are in The Army together its obvious they are romantically involved. This conflict that "rages" is mentioned several times to break up couples since many don't survive. For a reader, you are in for a very suspense-charged Fantasy that even includes romance. All of the before mentioned storylines of the characters are intriguing in Angelkiller.
[Angelkiller, by the way, switches through different character perspectives in a well-balanced way that accentuates the story's overall flow]
