That being said, I started reading this book, not remembering what the storyline was about since I had bought it a few months earlier. However, I was quickly absorbed in the story and took it for what it was - a fiction story - and went along for the journey, which turned out to be an amazing and breathtaking ride. I didn't care that some parts of the ending were predictable; taking the journey from beginning to end - seeing how all the pieces of the puzzle fit together in the end - was a reward, in and of itself.
I was drawn to the characters of Nick and Tamara immediately, though Tamara was more of a background character for most of the book. I couldn't embrace Lena - feeling she was off somehow, not exactly what she claimed to be - but I enjoyed the glimpses into her past life, how some of the blanks about her were filled in. I was drawn to Hope and wondered if she was who I thought she was - and it turned out that I was right. What really blew me away towards the end of the book was the revelation of why Hope's second husband and daughter ended up in the predicament they found themselves in at the beginning scene of the book; I did not see that coming at all.
The book deals a lot on the subject of supernatural beings with agendas, but not all of those agendas are good. Trying to sort the wheat from the chaff is challenging, at times, but Terminus brought to the forefront of my mind the battle that rages between the forces of good and evil for the soul of every person. The story took creative license in terms of how we perceive the behavior of angels, but it was a fantastic story with some truths interspersed that could definitely enrich a human's life. Hope's speech alone was inspiring when she stood before the masses and I enjoyed the opportunity to witness lives being changed from the inside, even lives many people might think are beyond redemption because of decisions made in the past.
If you're not into reading about supernatural characters, there's no point in buying this book, reading or trying to read it and ending up giving it a bad review. However, if your mind has ever wondered about the existence of angels and demons - what may go on in a realm we are not privy to hear or see - this just might prove to be an entertaining read. I could never come up with something of this caliber in my wildest dreams.
Things weren't always so mundane for Nick. He has a sterling resume, a millenium or so before he was a warrior, an angel on the way up. But then he became involved with a human, something strictly forbidden in the angel code. The union of an angel and a human can produce a Nephilim, a being that has super powers equal to or greater than your regular angel, and can use them for good or evil. A Nephilim gone bad is something you never want to meet in a dark alley.
Nick gets a second chance. His new supervisor, Lena, assigns him three tasks, deaths in which he must intervene, not to save them, mind you, but to make sure they die. Nick messes up again. Not only does he rescue those who are to die, he falls in love with one of them. He should have known better.
Nick's new job involves a number of subplots and new characters. There are also a number of POV shifts early on that I found a bit confusing. These subplots are all interconnected, and somehow the author manages to tie together a number of different story lines.
What Nick doesn't know is that his assigned tasks are part of a Nephilim plot to establish a new world order, triggered by a nuclear explosion in a crowded stadium. But Nick, when he finds out, is a weakened angel, because of his attachment to the human female, Hope.
The denouement is complex and full of surprises, an epic battle between angels and demons. It evolves by a deus ex machina sequence in which deus is really deus, that is to say, God.
Nick, because of his compassion for humans, is reinstated with even greater superpowers, and rides off with the archangel Michael to fight evil.
There were a bit too many story lines for me to stay on top of, but that's probably due to my short attention span. This is a highly imaginative and entertaining book.

A few twists and turns in the plot to keep one absorbed.
I am pleased I did continue with the reading as spiritual truths and lives experiences were extremely well portrayed.
