Author: Angella Graff
The Blurb: Judas’ Kiss haunts him 2 millenia into his unending existence. Torn between petty gods and their hunger for power, a faithless police officer slips further into machinations that have already cost the life of someone he loved. Mark’s story finally begins to unfold in the newest volume of Angella Graff’s well received series: The Judas Curse.
Just as Detective Ben Stanford is ready to put the past at rest, he’s pulled down once again into the chaos of gods, theology, and mystery. Told that his sister is alive and the two immortals, Mark and Judas, have been kidnapped by the treacherous goddess, Nike, Ben must find a way to rescue the pair before she can harness their powers.
While Mark waits alone, forced to write out the story of how their powers came to be, and Judas lay tortured by the angry Goddess, a reluctant Ben must enlist the help of an unwilling being from the ancient Norse Pantheon.
Time is ticking, and the hard-headed detective must use everything he learned in the past to prevent another disaster, which could potentially wipe-out the human race.
My Review: I first have to start out by saying that I was a little leery about reading this series based off of the title as I struggle with religion and religious issues sometimes. I did however, pick up the first in the series The Awakening and immediately got pulled in as it was not a book based on religion as I had thought. I finished book one knowing I had to have the second one and fast as I NEEDED to know what happened further into this series. Book two The Judas Kiss did not disappoint me at any point. I am hooked and am patiently (NOT) awaiting book three. I will forever be a fan of Angella Graff's as I believe her to be a very talented and interesting author. I would be honored to review any book she puts out there. I am not going to give you anything on the story as if I did I am afraid I would divulge any and all spoilers and I can not allow that to happen. So if you must know this story like I did and still do then I encourage you to go and purchase these books as they are worth reading!
