Ian Acheson – Angelguard

From the Back Cover:

9781782640035Within a period of weeks, three horrific bomb blasts devastate areas of London, Los Angeles and Sydney. No explanation is offered, no victory claimed for these acts of terror. Yet behind the scenes a Machiavellian European businessman is planning to bring the G8 nations to their knees for his own larcenous purposes, aided by the dark forces to whom he has sold his soul.

Jack Haines, an Australian academic, is grieving the loss of wife and children in the Sydney blast. Against his will he finds himself thrown into a war that transcends the physical world, a conflict in which angelic guards have a special mission for him.

A gripping novel of the unseen forces that throng our world.

Amanda’s Review:

I was looking forward to reading this novel ever since I heard about it late last year. I loved Frank Peretti’s This Present Darkness, so I figured I would probably enjoy Angelguard. And I loved that the author was an Aussie.

While it didn’t quite meet my expectations, Angelguard ranged across the globe with an exciting plot involving terrorism. This was a good novel from Ian Acheson as a debut, especially as it wound up towards the climax with lots of tension. But I did find that there were so many characters, both human and spirit beings, that I often had to stop and remember who was who.

Angelguard does give a good picture of how prayer affects the spirit world, and therefore the natural world, and inspires us to get on our knees and intercede for those who don’t know Christ — and that is a great take away from the book in my opinion.

If you love action and glimpses into the supernatural, you will enjoy this novel. But be advised, there are a couple of words in there that might offend some readers. Overall though, a good read.
