Judas is bitter as the book begins. He is alone and indigent as the book starts. An angel approaches him with a mission-- he must protect a six-year-old girl for the three days before her seventh birthday. You can pretty much guess who the girl is, but that in no way diminished the story.
As the days pass, Judas battles demons and becomes attached to the little girl, which is surprising to him. He also finds allies in his fight to protect her in a cop and a prostitute. They make a formidable team.
The book bounces between the present and the past as it tells stories from Judas' past, including his role in the crucifixion. There are some secrets revealed that show how Judas became the man he is today. Although this is obviously fictionalized, the narrative rings true and is very intriguing.
As the days pass, Judas becomes very close to the little girl and is empowered by her. They grow to love and trust each other without question. The book ends in an epic battle between good and evil, with nothing less than the fate of the world at stake.
There are a lot of problems with grammar and missing words. Usually I would take a star off, but I liked the book too much. You can also tell the author is British because, even though the book is set in New York, a sprinkling of British words are in the book (bonnet, mate, and bloke are the most common). This should really be fixed because it does make the reader stop for a moment because the word usage is inconsistent.
Even with those problems, I highly recommend this book.
The story of redemption and sacrifice is peppered through out this book. Some times it gets hard to swallow but that's life.
This hero's tale is well down and extremely enjoyable. The theology gets off track in some places but it fits the narrative that Judas is kept immortal for 2000 years. That fact would change the nature of God. So don't bring this book to the seminary, just to the couch or lounge chair, read it and enjoy.
