Publisher’s DescriptionMarcel Dekrey, angel of The Lord and nine-hundred year old vampire, is a double agent in service to The Most High God. Marcel is charged with a clear mandate; observe and report to the heavenly host events as they unfold in the dangerous world of anomalies–vampires, werewolves, witches, warlocks, demonic creatures, and variations of each–which exists within our own, and intercede if and when necessity demands.

Necessity does indeed demand when Marcel learns a recent attack against him was orchestrated by his ancient enemy, Stefano the Gouge. The assault is part of his enemy’s plan to use Marcel’s duel nature to enact a ritual derived from a powerful artifact which has been in the possession of the human military since the end of World War II; The Book of the Dead.

Possible spoilers beyond this point.

Once again, readers, we have a story with a brilliant premise but the execution fell a little short. So much more could have been done with this than what was. There were times where there were whole paragraphs of useless information and this made the story drag.

It also switches points of view quite often during the chapters and this leads to confusion. One paragraph will be in first person and the next will be in third. After awhile I figured out that most of the first person point of view was for Marcel, but it still takes you out of the story when it suddenly switches.

badge3v4The main characters were interesting and it was neat to learn about how Marcel came to be and his relationship with Kari and Kasz. I was a little sad to see most of the human characters be introduced and have a back story like they were important, only to be killed off.

I am going to give this one three stars.

If you like this book…
