I wanted to check out this ARC from BBT because I'm use to the references of Angels being all well ... angelic. The ones that have wings, halo and gentle kind beings. I know there are some books and movies that does give a look in to the darker side of Angels.
No Rest for the Wicked
Author: Dane Cobain
Genre: Supernatural Thriller
Cover Artist: Ashley Ruggirello
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.
The Angels are naked and androgynous. They speak in a dreadful harmony with no clear leader. These aren’t biblical cherubs tasked with the protection of the righteous – these are deadly creatures of light that have the power to completely eradicate.
When Jones himself is attacked, Father Montgomery knows he has to act fast. He speaks to the Angels and organizes a final showdown where he’s asked to make the ultimate sacrifice.
Available at Amazon
This story was so different from what I had expected. It had me hesitating, even cautious. I'm not particularly a person of traditional religions, but I thought it was kind of refreshing that the Angels wasn't very nice as I know most people would define them.
That they considered themselves judge, jury and executioner. What them seem to me is that they are sin eaters. It's so chilling. I don't know why exactly but they made the hair on my arms to stand straight up. It is dark, grisly and had me on edge the whole time. With each page I turned, my breath would catch in anticipation. Eerie in fact. It made me feel like the very air was crackling as these Angels came to a person demanding to know all their sins.
Mr. Cobain has dangerously thrilled me with the story of these angles reminding me that there is evil in the world; as well as good and he managed to bring a bright & burning light to it.
I would like to know more about the back story between Father Montgomery and Jones as it added to the spice of the story as well as the characters that was being judged. What was it that brought these person to light on the Angels radar? I did find it interesting that Father Montgomery choose to give the ultimate sacrifice.
I would like to see what else Me. Cobain plans to do with his dark side. That would be a book worthy of reading. I have to thank BBT for introducing me Mr Cobain and in light on my honest opinion that I'm giving for the exchange this ARC I give this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars. And I have to acknowledge that it sent shivers down my back again as I typed up this reviews.
