Publisher's Summary

When Trace took a bullet for his wife’s lover, his life ended...but didn’t.

By the divine promise of sacrifice, he awakened an Ash Angel with a new body, new powers, and a new war to fight. Cassandra, his temperamental trainer, tries to get him ready to battle Ghostpackers and Dreads, but it might be too little too late: for the first time in history, the Ash Angels are faltering against the fury of an evil more ancient than they are.

While he fights to survive run-ins with a Sheid-hunted pop star and a gorgeous but dangerous Dread, Trace realizes his new life cannot erase the trauma of the old. Thrust onto the front lines of a violent war with ancient ambition, Trace finds that the deadliest demons are the ones lurking in his own mind.

genuinely surprising

came for rc bray left loving this new series. extremely well designed storyline. the firearm mechanics are a bit meh but passable dozens of shocking reveal that you were sure you had figured out but hadn't. coming from an atheist author did a great job of making the religious aspects neutral. read/listened to about 300 novels at this point and for quality of story and writing this is easily in my top 5.

What a find!

Just by random I thought I’d have a listen. Couldn’t stop. Very good. Like a drama action version of Paulo Coelho. Loved the lore and the story travelled well. Well done. Thank you for writing it.

fantastic unique take on angels

in general, loved it. Some parts left me dubious whether I wanted to continue such as overwhelming bureaucracy and young earth tropes but I came to enjoy the bureaucratic plodding as the running joke it was and able to ignore the young earth literalism for the sake of the story.

r.c. bray, as usual, was fantastic.

Feels like a Christian genre to me

Made it about three quarters of the way through the book I will say in advance I bought it simply because RC Bray was the narrator and he never fails to impress but overall just not enthusiastic about the read while well done with the characters well-defined and interesting story it feels like a going to the Catholic Church confessional main character beating himself up every time he's torched that along with the lack of profanity from both factions gave it a very strange religious vibe that I found unappealing just my two cents all in all so far I believe that the story is worth the read the reader is worth listening to but I won't continue the series personally

Take my money and give me the crack!

I found this one hard to put down. In fact I was tempted several times to speed the narration up just so I could hurry up and find out what would happen next.
The author and narration make a excellent combination. I’ll do my best to explain why I think this, by starting with the story itself.
The author certainly has a grasp on the the traditional theology of angels and demons. He raises questions such as ‘can angels still fall? Can angels be saved? How do angels compare to humankind? The order or structure of angels? These questions have been discussed by many scholars before and will probably continue to happen. However, the story itself makes this ‘interesting’ aspect of religion more believable… no not sure believable is the correct term. Definitely, more enjoyable anyway!
I loved the themes of sin, forgiveness, revenge, grace. But please don’t go thinking this a religious book. It certainly does have religious tones. I mean it has to given the subject matter. The very human themes creates tension within the characters that are very relatable to all. This along with the twist and turns in the plot made for a very enjoyable listen.
Now the narration. RC Bray once again knocks it out of the park. The guy is a freak.. end of story… nothing more needs to be said it is that good!
At over 17 hours worth of listening, this one has to be excellent value for money. The title does say it is part of a series. If it is I would pre order the next. But unlike so many first books in a series. This one does not leave you hanging for an ending. It just leaves you hanging waiting for more!

I will never look at a McRib sandwich the same way

"I see dead people" ! Then getting run over by a truck is a start of a very bad day. But for Trace, it opens up an entirely worthwhile existence, albeit in a new and entirely unexpected way . I sniffed out this audiobook by following the bread crumb trail of R.C. Bray and he always delivers a sumptuous meal. I am so happy to find this gem and I will get in line for the next one in the series.
Got it all, Action, Love, Regret, Honor and a captivating story line. After binge listening to the audiobook, I woke up to a sweat in my bedroom seeing the red glow of the room and realizing it was only my Digital Clock red numerals illuminating the room. But what a rush of a memory.
The storyline was not too evangelical and was light enough that I enjoyed the plot twists and the final chapters blew me away.
I cracked up at the reference to the age old mystery proposed, Did Adam and Eve have a belly button? Har har.

Good book

Overall it was a good book. the only thing that got to me were little inaccuracies, for example, when you shoot a gun it "recoils". It does not "kickback", a Marine would know that. Marines do not say HUA. They yell Oorah. These are fairly minor issues but they do become annoying after awhile. Everything else kept me listening. Loved the depth and descriptions.

Good for a one time ride

Book had its moments of being drawn out but overall decent story one time ride maybe , maybe a book 2. I don’t think I could do more than 2. Bray was great as always.

Brilliant

Was not sure I would enjoy this as previous similar novels (while fun) have always been a bit camp. This was great from start to finish and really enjoyed the actual story. Can't wait for the next novel!

Brilliant..

Like others I got this because R.C.Bray was narrating it and I’m so glad I did. Excellently paced story. The author really has a distinctive voice.
I can’t wait for the next one.

Exciting but... religion.

I did enjoy the premise of this book, and it was exciting, but I got really fed up with the Christian stuff. Angels, demons, preachers etc can all make for great fantasy, but this is just a bit keen on the Christian message, which makes these angels just too earnestly good.
