Review by E. Lucas - Bold, Well-Written Fantasy Shocks and Entertains (click on link to see complete review )
"...is the first in a fantasy series that may prove controversial but is nonetheless entertaining and very well written. It begins at the beginning of mankind, when the Angels freely interacted with humans, either choosing to help them or wreak havoc—and then God makes a decree: the Angels are to step back and cease all interference..."
Since I love controversial topics, especially when it comes to religion, I knew this book was a "must read" for me. It is very well written and I am enjoying it. And...I must say the book cover is fantastic. Read book description below:
Nyx is Queen of Hell and ruler of the Angels who were banished there - the Descended.
And when the rest of the Angels are called home, Nyx finds herself stuck on the Earth with the Son of God. To her surprise, she learns that he is no happier than she. God's son thought he was sent down to judge humanity. Instead, he becomes a sacrifice for a cause he does not believe in - their redemption.
After his mortal body dies, the Son of God makes Nyx an offer: a new paradise on Earth if she will help him destroy humanity.
With two of her fellow Angels by her side, Nyx launches a thousand-year campaign of violence, sex, betrayal and intrigue to bring down God's people and have them worship her instead. From the back streets of Jerusalem to the palaces of Rome, from the temples of Egypt to the Pope's bedchamber, Nyx and her companions work to destroy the worshipers of God.
But not all is as it seems...
John Patrick Kennedy was born in Brooklyn, New York, to immigrant parents. His first novel "Bugs Ain't So Bad," was written when he was only four years old--unfortunately, it was never published, and even more unfortunately--the original manuscript has since, been lost forever.
Now recovered from the loss of his first novel, John has finally decided to get his butt in gear and share his work with people other than his wife, mother, and mother-in-law. He's been writing all his life, and now realizes that it would be fulfilling to receive any kind of feedback--good, bad, or even something in between. Anything really.
