There’s something very wrong with the world. A strange mist settles everywhere. It seems to be causing more than the usual horrors humans like to inflict on themselves, like an organising of those horrors into a plan to end them.
A Preacher with a past challenging his faith and a renowned Ufologist learn something evil is controlling it. They’re being shown signs to discover who it is but what is it?
Is it an alien hybrid, installed for a long-overdue alien takeover and terraforming of Planet Earth?
Or is it the Biblical antichrist, fulfilling its apocryphal destiny?
If they can figure out what it is, maybe they can learn how to defeat it.
Thing is, it’s not easy. The signs of abduction and demonic possession are the same. Descriptions of aliens and biblical demons are the same.
There’s nothing obvious presenting itself but there’s something about the number 37 that seems to have an answer. There is hope.
Meanwhile, the rest of humanity appears to be falling right into its trap.
One way or another, the end of the world is indeed nigh and humans are not required.
Eventually, the only solution is the most unlikely solution.
But it’s all they’ve got.
It really was a stupidly hot 11am in the little wooden church of St. John the Baptist, in the scrubs outside Booker.Letters from Angels by Dominic Schunker
When I started reading Letters from Angels, I was expecting a cut and dry book about four people thwarting the end of the world. I was looking forward to reading it. The blurb sparked my interest. But, having read the book, I can say that it wasn’t something that I would have read on my own.
The plot for Letters from Angels was interesting. A preacher and a Ufologist are brought together by a time-traveling couple to help them defeat the Antichrist. The only problem is that they need to find out how to defeat him and save the world.
The main characters were wonderfully written, and I enjoyed reading about their escapes. But I couldn’t connect with them. I didn’t feel that connection with any of the main characters. Which saddened me because I thought that they were well written and had interesting backstories.
The plotline was also well written. It did take some time to get going, but once it got up to speed, it didn’t stop. There were a few lags in the plotline, but the plot got back on track. I also liked how the foursome went about defeating the Antichrist.
The end of Letters from Angels was confusing. I ended up rereading the last few chapters because I wasn’t sure what was going on or what happened.
I would give Letters From Angels an Adult rating. There is sex. There is language. There is violence. I would recommend that no one under the age of 21 read this book.
I am on the fence if I would reread Letters From Angels. I am on the fence if I would recommend it to family and friends.
