The prologue provides a stunning beginning--even more so because it is based in truth, on Pope Leo XIII's frightening vision that occurred in 1884 . After reading this vivid prologue, you will forever have a devotion to Saint Michael, the warrior archangel.
"Sons of Cain" is a cleverly-written, well-plotted, solid story that deals with the battle between Good and Evil--but not merely as a vague, abstract concept. On the contrary, physical and spiritual battles erupt on very personal levels. Nick Rieper, ex Navy Seal with a tumultuous past, has formed a band of warriors, the Knights of Longinus, who dedicate themselves to fighting Satanism. Father Picora, who has risen above his own broken past, is Rieper's confessor and friend. Together, these strong Catholics must stop the Cainites from destroying America, even if it costs them their lives.
Interestingly, while "Sons of Cain" is geared for male readers, I can attest that females will enjoy it, too. One of the main viewpoint characters, Robyn Alexander, is a beautiful, smart young woman who faces some mighty challenges. After circumstances bring her together with Father Picora, Reiper (whom she is attracted to), and the Knights of Longinus, Robyn will find her life forever altered.
While there are many characters in this book, they are all believable and intriguing. The author includes in-depth background, insight, and motivation.Read more ›
Nick Rieper and his merry band of knights (don't laugh, these guys live as close to the knightly ideal as possible) must stop not only the humans trying to wreak havoc upon the U.S. government, but also deal with their demonic leader. This is slightly complicated by the fact that they must also protect those they care about, including a gorgeous journalist who is just beginning to live a life of faith and a priest who has a checkered past to say the least.
This is told in straight forward fashion with no frills, except for some explanatory sections which were a bit too long and drawn out for my taste. That aside, the book heads straight for an adventure steeped in good versus evil, with angels and demons doing their fair share on the appropriate side.
If you aren't Catholic then my guess is that you may not like the book because the good guys are steeped in it, can't shut up about it, don't mind stopping to press rosary beads into a dying woman's hand, and are quick to gather in prayer for someone in danger before it's time to race to the rescue. Did I mention they talk about it? A lot? Now, as I said before, that's a turn on for me, but your milage may vary. As for the rest, you'll have to read it. All I'm gonna say is we now have the ultimate conspiracy presented about what's been keeping America down in recent years.
On a personal note, it was a good reminder of the implacable hatred that demons bear to mankind. The book's opening which tells of Pope Leo's vision that led him to write the St.Read more ›
The story itself is so very relevant to the goings on of the world today. Yes, we do live in a dark place, but there will always be forces fighting against evil. Join the character Nick Rieper and his Knights on a quest to battle the legions of the dark one. You will find yourself on the edge of your seat and you will feel your pulse quicken as the stakes get higher and the battles with the demonic grow more fierce.
As for what one of the other reviewers wrote in regards to the plot being pieced together badly, they must have been reading a different book. The plot was woven together seamlessly. I had absolutely no problem understanding and following what was taking place. As for it being boring, I think not.
I've read a lot of fiction and this is an excellent fast paced read for anyone......
