Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're striking novella gold with a quickie read from a new-to-me-author I do believe you're going to REALLY get into. It's a Supernatural Thriller that begs readers to check their own proverbial closets because you never know when that skeleton is going to come back to haunt you...or worse! Ready or not, let's jump into today's book of choice...
About the book...
When the Angels attack, there’s NO REST FOR THE WICKED.
Father Montgomery, an elderly priest with a secret past, begins to investigate after his parishioners come under attack, and with the help of Jones, a young businessman with an estranged child, Montgomery begins to track down the origin of the Angels.
When Jones himself is attacked, Father Montgomery knows he has to act fast. He speaks to the Angels and organises a final showdown where he’s asked to make the ultimate sacrifice.
I admit, I was kept pretty much on the edge of my seat throughout the 128 epages...and that's harder to accomplish with me when reading an ebook. I know, I know...you don't want to hear it, but you know what I'm getting at... ME + EBOOK = NOT-AS-HAPPY-AS-WITH-PAPER. There, that's all I'll say on the matter. Getting back to my point, the author manages to pull some theological threads into his story without stepping on any religious toes. There's enough to draw the curious reader of a faith based background but not so much that it crosses over into a Christian Fiction title. No, decidedly not a Christian Fiction title. I found myself constantly curious about the connections between what was happening in the community we were based in as opposed to the little tidbits and news blips from abroad. Were they connected? How and WHY? Did it have anything to do with the experiment? Were scientists trying too hard to play God? So many questions and so few answers, but just enough of the former are sated to make this a MUST READ for your afternoon reading adventure.
