Overview: Judas the Betrayer, is on the run after betraying his master. The whole world is hunting him down and just when he seems to be catching a break he is taken by an angel to a flying ship to be recruited as a messenger of Chaos. We follow his training and missions, and pass his great test of “The War of 12 Messengers.” He lives over a thousand years doing work for the angels, and one of them betrays him, leading to him being cast out of the flying ship to live as a human and ultimately transformed beyond that of a simple human.
I think I said that with minimum spoilage.
What I think: Action and adventure run flawlessly through this great book. The story line is amazing and has a great concept of where it wants to go but has some issues. Some of the chapters were told out of order, which got more confusing as it went on. Towards the end of the middle, things were being rushed and there was no concept of what happened between years.
The big kicker for me was it centered a lot around religion and faith, on it’s own the story would be great but for me I just couldn’t quite get past those to truly love it. I do, however still recommend it to those who enjoy religious sci-fi crusade types of books.
