Why do bad things happen to good people? Simple. In the ancient war between the Angels of Light and Darkness, the Dark won. Now it is the job of an undercover force simply known as The Army to rectify that.

Using every tool available, The Army has worked to liberate our world from The Enemy for thousands of years, slowly and painfully lifting Mankind out of the dark. On the front of the great Conflict are the Angelkillers, veterans of the fight with centuries of experience.

Jonah Mason is an Angelkiller, and his cell is targeted as part of a plot to unseat a very powerful Minion of The Enemy. Mason and his troop are drawn into a battle that stretches from real-time to virtual reality and back. The Conflict is about to expand into cyberspace, and if Mason is unable to stop it, The Enemy will have gained dominion over yet another realm.

My Thoughts:
This was a great good vs. evil story. This was a short read but by no means a light one. It was pretty intense. It was very plot driven and I am looking forward to more in the series for more character development. I am stickler for in depth characters which sometimes I found myself wondering more about some characters and I am betting that was a way for them to be aloof and mysterious. Which is what they felt like to me and which drew me in wanting to know more. I loved that this was a futuristic story, a Fantasy and a what if story all rolled into one. There are tons of good vs evil books but in Blalock's created world evil won but good did not just lay down and take it. I was surprised when I got to the parts that were battles fought in a Warcraft like setting. I have to say I love that it was a classic good vs. evil story but totally told in a new nontraditional way. I can not wait for the next book. I recommend this book to fantasy lovers, gamers and action lovers. I am very impressed by Blalock's writing, style and mastery of storytelling. This is an author to add to the must read list.

Rating 4.5 out of 5. This is a solid, well written book.
