    • Well I just finished reading this book and the first thing that comes to mind is: I hope John Patrick Kennedy didn’t sell his soul to N the Devil in return for the power to pen an intriguing book. The second thing that comes to mind is: why the hell didn’t I think of this great idea first!?Read it. Read it now.Kennedy does a fantastic job creating a wicked setting for his tale about an epic struggle for Heaven and Hell. In fact, I believe the only people who won’t love this book are those [...]


    • I just finished reading Plague of Angels by John Patrick Kennedy. Talk about a page turner! This book took me by surprise, as I expected a story whose main characters are angels with the backdrop of heaven, hell and earth to be too far removed from reality to make for an interesting read. This book went well beyond my expectations. Kennedy takes a very difficult context with some very challenging protagonists, such as Saint Michael, God and a character called the Nyx, who is the self proclaimed [...]


    • This book really had the potential to be awesome, because, let's face it for those of us who aren't religious the "son of God" meekly submitting to his fate is boring, but the son of God being pissed and partnering with the queen of hell to get revenge is awesome. Unfortunately, the execution of the novel is not awesome -the fight scenes read like Michael Bay fan fiction and take up way too much of the plot, the sex and debauchery likewise add nothing to the story. Nyx is creatively imagined, as [...]


    • 1.5 Stars Read all my reviews on urlphantomhiveoklikes I wanted to like this book. I honestly did. I'd won it in a BookLikes giveaway and I'm always hoping those are good books, and the synopsis sounded really interesting. However, immediately from the start the book and I didn't get along.Nyx is queen of the underworld after being expelled from heaven. While she's waiting for her loved one to return she's tormenting a lot of people on earth.Okay, I really didn't like it. It's been a while since [...]


    • Holy Hell's Balls Batman! Most of the time reading this book "I was like WHOA." You know, like the song? Ok, maybe you don't. I digress. This book is pretty dark. I would not recommend this book for people who are: closed-minded, afraid of blood, adverse to reading about torture, uptight, very religious, shy away from cussing, or looking for a light-hearted book. You will probably be very disappointed. Trust me.If you can get past all of these, then I would highly recommend you read this book. I [...]


    • Plague of Angels is a captivating fantasy with a plot based on what we all know to traditionally be "Heaven and Hell". I was completely amazed with the imagination and detail that was put into every single line of this story! I was also impressed with the accuracy of the historical aspect which inspired the writing. The plots continued to grow with unexpected twists and I was feeling like I couldn't get to the next page quick enough. Any author with the ability to pull off a modern-day fantasy c [...]


    • Controversial, challenging, dark and imaginative, first time author John Patrick Kennedy is introduced with his first novel Plague of Angels (The Descended). It gives a twisted re-imagining of the relationship between God and his angels. Devout Christians will no doubt find it insulting, historians will shudder at his impressments of true figures and events into his world, but in all cases he challenges your view of faith and Christianity.The lead character is a fallen angel, Nyx, who was a lead [...]


    • ARC was given for an honest review3.5-4 StarsThis isn't the type of book I would usually read and it took me a good few weeks as I kept picking it up and putting it down, I just couldn't decide whether I liked it or not, so I decided to look at it objectively and note my likes and dislikes (hence we have 4 stars.)Likes1) It was very well written and I found the writing style interesting.2) I loved Nyx I can't put my finger on why, but someone who simply decides she's the Queen of hell Well, she' [...]


    • Literally blew my mind. Word of warning, this book is not for those who are easily offended as the content is graphic and controversial. But, if you are ready for a dark adventure into the world of Hell on earth, then this book is for you.Nyx, the queen of Hell, has a mission to make mortals turn away from God and worship her so that one day earth would become her Paradised she has 1000 years to do it. This plan was planted in her head by a force more powerful than her, one who is looked upon as [...]


    • John Patrick has some serious imagination, action, and description going on in this book. While I read, I could imagine each scene playing out in my mind. It’s fiction about Dark Angels, better known as the Angels that fell from Heaven during the revolution (tribulation, the second coming), but takes a completely different spin. Nyx is the queen of Hell and Lucifer is her second in command. Angels have always fascinated me, so when presented with Plague of Angels, I couldn’t resist. I will s [...]


    • I'm not wasting a bunch of words on this book. With an amateur writing style and cringe-worthy dialogue, this felt like an attempt at being edgy but ended up being downright silly at times. I'm very surprised by all the good reviews here.


    • I’m rating this at 4 stars because of the rating system. I would have given it three and a half. I will get into why further down below. First the positive. Kennedy, writes a brilliant story line, Jesus (or Tribunal) as a bad guy? I would have never thought to check that side of the coin. Sure why wouldn't he be pissed over being a sacrifice. Kennedy did a great job on the research of the story throughout history, or at least as far, I know he did. I'm not exactly a history buff, however he wr [...]


    • Reading this book has been an experience!! WOW!!! I never expected to read something like this. To take the common understanding of Heaven and Hell and the Jesus story and twist it in this wonderful way!! I have no qualms in saying that the moral police should take a hike!This is a modern day take on the traditional stories we grew up with. Nyx, the Queen of Hell, makes the ultimate mistake of falling in love with the Angel who is sent down to live as Jesus! They hatch a plan to destroy God and [...]


    • Incredible story, great writing!Nyx is the Queen of Hell and a dark, descended angel sent to earth to destroy Christianity. Her companions in this mission are a couple of self-serving Goddesses and nearly an entire race of self-serving humans. Not to mention the son of God himself, yes, that's right -- Jesus is the big baddie in this paranormal retelling of history.As evil as Nyx is, the reader learns to respect and yes, even to love her in her quest to bring Christianity and humanity to their k [...]


    • Plague of Angels is a book so well written and engaging that I found myself completely engrossed from the beginning to the end. Each chapter is full of intrigue and imagery. I enjoyed the tale of Nyx, a fallen angel, that calls herself the Queen of Hell. In this story, she hopes that Lucifer, whom she describes as inferior to her, will return Hell back to her. For now though, she will haunt the human race in her many forms. The author crafts this story so skillfully and full of biblical mytholog [...]


    • Plague of Angels has it all! The first night I opened this book I thought I would sit down and read for maybe fifteen to twenty minutes before bed at most. I started reading and looked at the clock and an hour and a half went by! I couldn't put it down! I was sucked in by the words that I consider mentally visually stunning. John Patrick Kennedy is a talented writer who knows how to kick your imagination into overdrive with his eloquently written words and book packed with just the right amount [...]


    • With a story line involving fallen angels, and plots to bring down humanity. The characters in the novel are interesting, and this book provides a different look at history. In the book the Son of God makes a pact with Nyx to destroy humanity, who he hates. It’s an interesting twist in a story that many of us know well. But individuals who are extremely religious may find this book slightly offensive due to this twist. I really enjoyed reading this book because it is so different from the norm [...]


    • Nyx. The banished angels. The suspense. The thrills. The mystery. The gruesomeness. Demons. War. Fantasy. Plot twists. Controversy.Enough said. This book was recommended to me, and now I'm recommending it to you.


    • I bought this book based on the reviews. What a mistake. I should have read the preview before buying. After a couple of pages, I was wondering where all of the great reviews came from.


    • A very interesting twist on God, angels, demons, heaven and hell. If you are easily offended, and can not handle blasphemy, this book if not for you. It's a wild, evil fun read.


    • Ich hatte mir eine Geschichte erhofft, die Angelfall ähnelt, aber noch dunkler und erwachsener ist. Dunkel und erwachsen trifft auf dieses Buch zu, aber ansonsten wurde ich enttäuscht. Der ganze Plot ist ein einziger Müll, wobei man sich tatsächlich auch darüber streiten kann, ob überhaupt so etwas wie ein Plot existiert.Das außergewöhnlich gute Rating des Buches, kann ich mir nur dadurch erklären, dass manche Leute anscheinend einfach auf sinnlose Gewalt stehen und dabei über den fehl [...]


    • This book seems to be an alternative religion/mythology imposed on the first eleven hundred years of humanity following the birth of Christ. In general the writing style is easy to read, although there are an unfortunate number of typos/editing issues. Generally speaking, I am very tolerant of a small number of these, but I found the frequency here to be irritating. Two cautions must also be mentioned. First, this is actually the first of a series, but I did not find that out until the end. The [...]


    • `I'm a creator of worlds with words.'John Patrick Kennedy starts his career as a writer with a deliciously controversial book. Brooklyn born of Irish ancestry, he seems to have inherited the Irish genes for wild tales and has the courage to make his own stories challenging to the conservative readers with such a flair for showmanship that the result of his courageous wanderings through myth, religion, and those oh-so-sacred stories that form our concept of a universe that makes sense (read `crea [...]


    • Everything we think we know about history and the Bible is wrong. The first fallen Angel is Nyx, Queen of Hell, and she was the lover of Jesus. Who was not a savior, but a judge that determined mankind was corrupt and should be wiped from existence. God refused to carry out the sentence, instead leaving mankind to make its own destiny. This infuriates Tribunal (supposed real name of Jesus), and he sends Nyx to corrupt humanity against the rising Christian Church.Several other bloggers I work wit [...]


    • – WARNING – Content is extremely graphic, and those who would be offended by a different perspective on religion – all religion, but especially Christianity - should not read. Now to the Good Stuff!John Patrick Kennedy goes Old Testament on the history of Christianity, Mankind, Angels, Demons, Heaven and Hell. With a little bit of Divine Comedy thrown in for good measure. This dark fantasy is bathed in blood, eroticism and brutal history. The Angel, Nyx, and her army, challenged God for th [...]


    • Wow, a different and beautiful storyLet me start by saying I come from a very strong Christian family and I have always avoided books that I thought would make a mockery of my faith. Then a good friend suggested I give this book a try, and to keep an open mind. I bulked at first but I love a good fantasy so I decided to take up the challenge and read this book. Holy cow am I glad I did!I was gripped from the beginning, pulled in by the vivid writing with such different and interesting concepts. [...]


    • First off, I will take the liberty to forewarn you that this book is definitely not for the weak-hearted and who has frail and wavering Christian faith. This is certainly one of the books that could cause sensationalism because of the unbelievable depiction of every war and battles in human history, as well as the incredible story line about the Son of God as one of the bad guys. The author did a very good job in creating an intricate story, which could keep you hanging on the edge of your seats [...]


    • This was one of those peculiar reads that you are not quite sure how to categorise – I was by turns fascinated and repelled by the story from the first (albeit I skipped some of the rather excessive sex and violence) but no matter what I thought of each of the many plot twists, I couldn't put it down! A totally original take on the story of how the first angels fell from heaven and created hell, the story is fast-paced and generally well-written, but where on earth you'd file it is beyond me! [...]


    • This is a somewhat interesting book with a very non-Christian interpretation of the story of Christ. Angels have been all the earlier Gods and the one God of the Judaeo-Christian tradition sends down a piece of himself as Jesus. He turns out not to be sympathetic with humans and leagues himself, at least on the surface, with Nyx, the queen of the underworld. There is curiously a fair amount of sex in the story, not so many explict sex scenes as through the use of sex between angels and as tempta [...]


    • Plague of Angels (The Descended) by John Patrick Kennedy is a 302 page fantasy novel written in third person, past tense. It had a long prologue, featuring a detailed background of Nyx. The writing was fast paced, full of detailed action and on occasion, jumped long spans of time. The descriptions were drawn out very well. My only complaint was the long passages of narration. I would rather have had dialogue move the story along instead of a narrator telling me. When there was dialogue it was to [...]
