In Halo of the Damned by Dina Rae we meet Andel Talistokov and Joanna Easterhouse.

Beside Andel and Joanna we do meet a few other very-important-to-the-plot characters but Andel and Joanna are our main characters.

Joanna is a recover alcoholic and drug addict that has just got out of prison. She is in need of a job and after going to her first AA meeting outside of prison she meets a woman who gets her a job at The Evil Empire, an advertising agency that is run and owned by Andel Talistokov.

A very rich and well known man for his field of work he owns many advertising agency’s all over the world and started them for a reason: to gain souls for his master, Satan.

Andel is a fallen angel, one of the many that fell with Lucifer. Now they are his people and Satan is all about collecting souls for his army.

Andel, however good he is at getting souls for his master (and he is the best) is getting sloppy and breaking the few commandments that his master has for all of his underlings. One of them being that no humans can pray to anyone but him. Satan is angered by his breaking them and orders Andel home in six months and to find his replacement.

Andel has slowly been gaining his own worshipers from a group of people that are Yezidism, a religion that prays to angels. He shows up for their ceremonies and breeds with the humans (another commandment he is breaking) to crate a race of nephilim. Half-angel and half-human beings.

It is not long before both Andel and Joanna’s worlds collide, outside of work, when she and her sister, Kim, delve into their past and learn of their linage. And the legacy their mother left them.

I really liked this book! It is gory as all get-out, really just the fist few pages are pretty gory, but at the same time the book was a pretty fast paced, violent and interesting read.

The only complaints I have for this book is that every once and a while I would come across a sentence that was worded oddly and it would completely throw me out of the story. When I say worded oddly I mean it was not something I believe someone would say, in those words, in a normal real life conversation. I have an example below:

“What do you mean? Please expand. This is an interesting point you just brought up,” Juliet said

I just do not think someone would say that in real life.

Other than that though (and it did happen rarely) I really enjoyed Halo of the Damned and I do hope there is going to be a second book! We are kind of left with the feel there may be more to come and I hope it is so!

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a good gory, violence filled unique angel/horror read.

*I received a hardcover/paperback/eBook copy/ARC of this book for free to review from the author/publisher/tour site; this in no way influenced my review, all opinions are 100% honest and my own.
