Angelguard by Ian Acheson
From Kregel Publications:
Within a period of weeks, three horrific bomb blasts devastate areas of London, Los Angeles, and Sydney. No explanation is offered, no victory claimed for these acts of terror. Yet behind the scenes a Machiavellian European businessman, aided by the dark forces to whom he has sold his soul, is planning to bring the richest nations to their knees for his own evil purposes.
Jack Haines, an Australian academic, is grieving the loss of wife and children in the Sydney blast. Against his will, he finds himself thrown into a war that transcends the physical world, a conflict in which angelic guards have a special mission for him. But how will Jack respond when angels turn out to be more than precious porcelain statues? And will he accept that he has been chosen to fight for the future of mankind?
This fast-paced supernatural thriller by debut novelist Ian Acheson mixes faith and nonstop action to spin an unforgettable tale.
My Take: I really liked this book. It reminded me alot of Frank Perretti's book This Present Darkness in the way that it showed the spiritual Warfare going on while people here on earth are just living their lives. The characters in the story were many and at times it was a bit hard to keep everyone straight but the action in the story kept you moving along and kept you turning the pages to see what would happen next. This really is a book about good and evil. Demons and Angels fight a spiritual battle around us and books like this help to remind us of that fact. I am looking forward to reading future books by this author.
I received a review copy of this book from Kregel Publications in exchange for my honest opinion.
