Angelguard Book Review

Picture Credit

Angelguard by Ian Acheson is a supernatural thriller and it is also Ian's first novel.

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. (Goodreads)

I enjoyed this book, it deals with demons and angels in a way that I hadn't thought about before. The story weaves in between many characters. You get to read from each side, the demons, the angels, and humans on earth. The demons and angels are often hovering around the humans or fighting each other. This book made me think a lot about life and what could happen in my own life.  It is quite a unique book that reminds me of Ted Dekker's writing. Ian Acheson is a very talented author and I can't wait to read more from him!
I highly recommend to those who love supernatural thrillers and fans of Ted Dekker and Frank Paretti.
