Beckoning Darkness (The Damned and The Pure #1) by J.D. Stonebridge


Beckoning Darkness: A Supernatural Suspense Thriller (The Damned and The Pure Book 1) - J.D. Stonebridge

God left humanity in the care of the angels. Centuries have passed, and Heaven is preparing for His return.

After centuries of imprisonment in Heaven, Ariel is given a chance to redeem herself in the eyes of the archangels. Years after her last descent, Ariel must return to the mortal land to fulfill her mission for the coming of God. But the memories of her past sins catch up to her, and Ariel must decide where her faith truly lies.

The city of Chicago was the chosen residence of the eccentric demon, Caelum. His taste of entertainment sets him apart from the rest of his kind, driving him to walk amongst the mortal men. But when he is presented with an opportunity to have a hand in Hell’s grand plan, temptation beckoned him to take the risks. Walking through shadows and nightmares he crosses paths with an angel from Heaven, and the memories of his forgotten humanity begin to resurface.

Both Heaven and Hell have plans for the End of Days with the angel, Ariel, and the demon, Caelum, at the center. When faith is threatened, two natural enemies become unlikely allies in a war for all Humanity.







I fell behind writing a review for Beckoning Darkness but this book has really stood out to me since receiving a copy of it for review from its author.

I'm actually glad the author requested a review because this book has easily become a new favorite of mine.

Granted it needs a lot more development in character and plot but I really believe this could be a trend setter in the fantasy genre. 

You have a lot of self conflict, self doubt, faith, community and family drama, spiritual growth and a whole twist to the angel myth that many really haven't brought to the table before.

I really liked the fight scenes and I really wish the author had really gone for it and just went wild because its ground work is there for some epic battles. I really hope Stonebridge decides to go back and revise this book and add more to it because its really going to be great when he does.

There is so much that is going on in this book that I hope that Stonebridge really dives in and branches out in the next installments to this series as well. Absolutely fantastic. Could be a five star book its got the potential.
