Marcel Dekrey, angel of The Lord and nine-hundred year old vampire, is a double agent in service to The Most High God. Marcel is charged with a clear mandate; observe and report to the heavenly host events as they unfold in the dangerous world of anomalies--vampires, werewolves, witches, warlocks, demonic creatures, and variations of each--which exists within our own, and intercede if and when necessity demands. Necessity does indeed demand when Marcel learns a recent attack against him was orchestrated by his ancient enemy, Stefano the Gouge. The assault is part of his enemy's plan to use Marcel's duel nature to enact a ritual derived from a powerful artifact which has been in the possession of the human military since the end of World War II; The Book of the Dead.
Three Boundless Stars
I was asked to read Vengeance Obtained in exchange for an honest review. This is the story of Marcel, a double agent for Angels and vampires. I know, it sounds kind of weird…it was. I found it hard for me to get into, as I was confused with the format at first; I found myself becoming more interested in some chapters than others. It was easier for me to read the story by skipping the chapters and reading by the different point of views, than in the order it was written. For example, I read all the chapters about Marcel first, the ones about area 51 second, and so on. Once I did this, I like it.
The characters were well developed; the concept was unique and well thought out. Once you get into it and figure out what’s going on, it’s a good read.
Vengeance Obtained is a well written, uniquely brilliant concept, with a severe lack of organization. Overall, I give it 3 Boundless Stars; “it was good, but could have been better.” If written in a format that is easier to follow, this could have easily been a 5 star book.
