This is a book that has had me curious. The blurb alone is interesting and while many a story is based on the basic premise of good v evil in this case the evil having won and are still waging the battle.

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.

This book really blew me away. I really liked the premise of the book, that of a spiritual war that has been fought throughout the ages. There were plot twist and directions taken that kept me guessing where the story would go. The ending left me wanting more. More on the conflict, more on the characters, more on everything! There were questions I would love to see the answers to, and I really want to know more about the main character, the decisions he has taken to get where he is, and where that will take him in the future. Like a great meal, this book filled me up, but left me looking forward to the next time I get to sit down and enjoy such a filling treat again.

First in the Angelkiller Triad, David Blalock's Angelkiller stands alone on its own merits and draws readers quickly and enticingly into a near-future world of ecological risk, governmental control, virtual reality, and... the great Conflict. The blend of slightly changed real-world and curious technology is pleasingly low-key, adding an almost surreal realism to the tale. Time's running out. The bad guys, who won when the Enemy was thrown down to earth, are almost ready to make their victory final. And the Army is out to stop them.

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.

Angelkiller! What a book title this book has and its story background when first saw it on Seventh Star Press enticed me very much. Once I actually read it did enjoy its story and found a very quick attachment to the characters.

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]

This book blogger is grateful to H. David Blalock for writing the Angelkiller Triad Trilogy since for a reader its covering new ground in Fantasy with some Virtual Reality aspects that have not seen before nicely brought to life.

Overall: Touching read
Genre: Fantasy, Speculation Fiction
