the voice Jul 7, 2009
My kids love Bill Meyers, I am a librarian in a small rural library in Mi. I try to have books on the shelf for my teens that they will love and aren't X rated. The teens and now several of the adults are reading him.
A Fast-Paced, Take-No-Hostages Story Jun 10, 2009
In this stand-alone sequel to THE VOICE, author Bill Myers continues telling the story of the three main characters in his newest release, ANGEL OF WRATH, kindly offering readers a brief background on these protagonists. Charlie Madison, former Special Ops agent who lost his wife and daughter to terrorists, has since become a burned-out recluse; Jazmin, the 13-year-old deaf daughter of Charlie's sister, now lives with him; and Lisa Harmon, a friend to both Charlie and Jazmin, is also a former FBI agent whose painful past has her fearful of commitment.
Myers opens his fast-paced, take-no-hostages story with a physician (who performs abortions) relishing time with his young daughter before bedtime when suddenly a laser beam hits and destroys her dolls. That, after receiving a cryptic church bulletin that had the words "THOU SHALT NOT KILL" highlighted, and the doctor is right to be afraid. Before the first chapter ends, the killer has dutifully carried out his own private revenge. The killings continue, and after each one, a commandment is placed close by the victim. Whoever is after the "sinners" isn't playing around, and no one is safe...especially those who claim to be Christians.
Enter Lisa, who is called upon to help solve the murders by her estranged pastor/brother Tom. When these occurrences begin happening to people from his congregation, it's hitting a little too close to home. His home. Tom's son, Will, is also a struggling soul who's dabbling in drinking and whatnot...not knowing how a single poor choice will land him in the middle of a demonic ritual and in the clutches of the otherworldly monster himself.
Soon Charlie and Jazmin join forces with Lisa, and it is Jazmin who realizes that these murders definitely have a spiritual force behind them. Though deaf, Jazmin can feel pulsations and pieces together that when believers praise God in worship, whatever demonic power is at play is diminished. Too bad no one listens to the teen until lives are at the brink of disaster and many have been killed.
With little fact to go on, the team of Charlie, Lisa and Jazmin rely on gut instinct and their faith. Each one faces inner demons from the past that must be reckoned with and overcome. The question is, how do they fight against both the physical and spiritual forces coming against them? Is there one unifying factor that will lead the group to the killer? Before the final page, readers will be surprised how Myers manages to bring to a successful conclusion these divergent characters' individual faith struggles. In seamless fashion he combines real-life heroism, spine-tingling demonic warfare, back-to-back action scenes, and a healthy measure of comedic relief.
Fans of Myers's previous work will enjoy this latest novel of suspense and will be waiting for the next installment.

Angel of Wrath rates high on the creepy scale Jun 10, 2009
It seems that Lisa Harmon's brother Thomas is the pastor of a thriving megachurch, and his members are being murdered in really freaky ways. The book opens with a doctor putting his daughter to bed. This doctor performs abortions, and earlier in the day he had received a cryptic note on a church bulletin: THOU SHALT NOT KILL. He appears to die from a heart attack brought on by fright, but the words THOU SHALT NOT KILL also appear on the daughter's wall. The next victim is a businessman whose car stereo suddenly plays the song "Money" on every station, and whose car stalls out on the railroad tracks. The doors lock and he can't get out. When the train comes rolling towards him, he can not escape. On the seat beside him is a note on church stationary: THOU SHALT NOT STEAL.
So Rev. Thomas Harmon calls on his sister, Ex FBI, and Charlie Madison Special Oops turnes to minstry, to help find whoever is killing his church members. Meanwhile, there is also a cult going on in the woods: teenagers in the town are gathering, sacrificing cats, and calling on some forces that they don't understand. The guy who is behind the cult teaches that Jesus and Satan are acting together to bring revenge. These rituals in the woods call up something no one expected.
The book is teaming with supernatural occurrences, and the hair on the back of my neck bristled more than once. It definitely held my interest all the way through. There are so many stories going on at the same time and lots of baggage that needs to be unloaded, lots of problems that only God can handle. I can't say I am in complete agreement with some of the theology, but it gives a reader plenty to think about. Hopefully it will not only entertain the readers, but bring them closer to God in the process. It certainly made me think a bit more about certain areas I need to pray about more. It also should make us think about the power of worship and praise, and the need to really mean it when we sing those powerful songs to the Lord. I feel like the power of prayer is downplayed a bit too much in order to emphasize what true praise and worship are, but, nevertheless, some good points are made.
With an emphasis on teenagers, this book certainly qualifies as Young Adult, but it is most assuredly a good one for adults, too.
Spiritual Warfare Extreme! Apr 18, 2009
I am always pleased to find a good book that deals with an important often overlooked subject - in "Angel of Wrath" Bill Myers does an excellent job of delving into spiritual warfare. It is reminiscent of Frank Peretti's "This Present Darkness" and Shaunti Feldhahn's "The Veritas Project". This is book #2 but can stand alone (although I do plan on going back and reading the first one "The Voice") and it is based on those characters, with many returning. New characters are introduced and enrich the story. One of the things I loved most was when Jazmin describes how she feels when evil is near, and another lady describes how it feels to her - they feel it differently, but it accomplishes the same thing - makes them aware that something is wrong and they need to do something about it. The resolution in this book is fantastic, but the journey getting there is enough to keep you on the edge of your seat.
Another Great Myers' Title...Tense and Tight Apr 4, 2009
I've whipped through every Bill Myers title I've ever read, from the Wally McDoogle series I read when I could snatch a book from my son, to the Fire of Heaven Trilogy. Whether Myers is going for humor or suspense, he cranks it out into a great read.
Angel of Wrath is not a departure from this MO or the expected Myers' skill with plot and character development. Though I didn't read book one in The Voice of God series, I'm intrigued enough to go back and pick it up because Myers, as he did with the Fire of Heaven Trilogy, introduces just enough speculation and scientific questioning into Biblical fact to make me stop and think a bit and want to read beyond the story I held in my hands.
Written in multiple POV Myers melds Satanism with a twisted "Christianity" and comes up with a horrifying religious blend from the pits. Honken Chicken Club members may find some creepiness just a little too creepy. Very conservative folks may find some of the slang language a bit trying or toe stomping. Overall, this is an entertaining and thought-provoking read. Parent warning...I'd rate it PG-13 because of some intense subject matter.
