Présentation de l'éditeur

HOW FAR MUST AN ANGEL FALL TO FIND HIS DESTINY? Having witnessed one too many senseless deaths, Nikolai, a disillusioned Reaper 3rd Class, resigns his commission with the Angel Forces after a tedious century of gathering souls. Immediately, another division recruits him with the promise of a more rewarding career, and issues his initial assignments: To bring down a few very dangerous threats to the human race. In the process, Nikolai falls in love with one of his targets—Hope Matheson, a woman who will lead thousands astray. Caught between conflicting agendas, Nikolai chooses to “fall” from his celestial state and become mortal in order to circumvent angel law and be with her. But for angels and humans alike, things are not always as they appear. Still a target, the threat against Hope’s life intensifies. Now, in order to save her, Nikolai must rally the last remnants of his failing supernatural abilities to prevent her assassination, as well as the destruction of an entire city by a nuclear terrorist strike. But his time and power are running out… Terminus is a perspective-altering saga that delves into ageless themes of redemption, destiny, and the eternal power of love.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An unusual but thrilling ride 6 juin 2015
Par N. Budden - Publié sur

It's hard to put into words my thoughts about this book, but I broke my typical rule and read a few reviews as my mind was formulating my own opinions. I read a couple of positive reviews, then looked at the negative reviews. I understand subject matter not being in someone's interest because that happens with any subject but some of the reviews I read made me feel bad for the author who read them about a work he published. There is such a thing as tact and it goes a long way...

That being said, I started reading this book, not remembering what the storyline was about since I had bought it a few months earlier. However, I was quickly absorbed in the story and took it for what it was - a fiction story - and went along for the journey, which turned out to be an amazing and breathtaking ride. I didn't care that some parts of the ending were predictable; taking the journey from beginning to end - seeing how all the pieces of the puzzle fit together in the end - was a reward, in and of itself.

I was drawn to the characters of Nick and Tamara immediately, though Tamara was more of a background character for most of the book. I couldn't embrace Lena - feeling she was off somehow, not exactly what she claimed to be - but I enjoyed the glimpses into her past life, how some of the blanks about her were filled in. I was drawn to Hope and wondered if she was who I thought she was - and it turned out that I was right. What really blew me away towards the end of the book was the revelation of why Hope's second husband and daughter ended up in the predicament they found themselves in at the beginning scene of the book; I did not see that coming at all.

The book deals a lot on the subject of supernatural beings with agendas, but not all of those agendas are good. Trying to sort the wheat from the chaff is challenging, at times, but Terminus brought to the forefront of my mind the battle that rages between the forces of good and evil for the soul of every person. The story took creative license in terms of how we perceive the behavior of angels, but it was a fantastic story with some truths interspersed that could definitely enrich a human's life. Hope's speech alone was inspiring when she stood before the masses and I enjoyed the opportunity to witness lives being changed from the inside, even lives many people might think are beyond redemption because of decisions made in the past.

If you're not into reading about supernatural characters, there's no point in buying this book, reading or trying to read it and ending up giving it a bad review. However, if your mind has ever wondered about the existence of angels and demons - what may go on in a realm we are not privy to hear or see - this just might prove to be an entertaining read. I could never come up with something of this caliber in my wildest dreams.

Who'd have thought that angels could be more fun than vampires, but in this intriguing novel that's the case. The author sets the hook in right away, as a man and a child are gunned down in the street. Cleaning up this mess, or at least transporting the spirits of the departed is the job of angel Nick (odd name for an angel, more often associated with Satan). Nick is an angel stuck in a dead-end job. His only task is transporting sprits to a location called Terminus, where they are processed for eternity. Nick longs for something more. He thinks of himself as just a "cosmic chauffeur."
Things weren't always so mundane for Nick. He has a sterling resume, a millenium or so before he was a warrior, an angel on the way up. But then he became involved with a human, something strictly forbidden in the angel code. The union of an angel and a human can produce a Nephilim, a being that has super powers equal to or greater than your regular angel, and can use them for good or evil. A Nephilim gone bad is something you never want to meet in a dark alley.
Nick gets a second chance. His new supervisor, Lena, assigns him three tasks, deaths in which he must intervene, not to save them, mind you, but to make sure they die. Nick messes up again. Not only does he rescue those who are to die, he falls in love with one of them. He should have known better.
Nick's new job involves a number of subplots and new characters. There are also a number of POV shifts early on that I found a bit confusing. These subplots are all interconnected, and somehow the author manages to tie together a number of different story lines.
What Nick doesn't know is that his assigned tasks are part of a Nephilim plot to establish a new world order, triggered by a nuclear explosion in a crowded stadium. But Nick, when he finds out, is a weakened angel, because of his attachment to the human female, Hope.
The denouement is complex and full of surprises, an epic battle between angels and demons. It evolves by a deus ex machina sequence in which deus is really deus, that is to say, God.
Nick, because of his compassion for humans, is reinstated with even greater superpowers, and rides off with the archangel Michael to fight evil.
There were a bit too many story lines for me to stay on top of, but that's probably due to my short attention span. This is a highly imaginative and entertaining book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Writing, interesting plot 12 août 2013

***** Mild spoiler contained in final paragraph *******

Christian fiction that evokes the spiritual realm is not easy to write. It is very easy to come off with stilted characters. Angels fascinate humans and Graham does a good job in reasonably extrapolating what might be true without ringing any bells in my Reformed sensibilities. I am reminded that, in spite of their Supernatural abilities, angels are limited, created beings, closer to humans than to the divine. I don't think that it spoils anything to say that the author explores what it means to fall as an angel. He explores How fall can you wander and still What does it mean to be a fallen angel or worse?

What I liked: the writing was interesting and the characters were discernible. I've read a number of new authors in the past year and Graham avoids a common problem: secondary characters tend to be hard to tell apart, especially in dialogue. Graham has a good cast of characters that stay interesting and distinctive.

***** Mild Spoiler Follows *****

I dinged one star from the rating for this reason (Mild critique and spoiler): I don't understand the need for the nuclear device sub-plot. It was effectively handled given the length of the story, but it felt like Graham used a nuke when a rifle would have accomplished the same effect. There was a hint at a global conspiracy brewing, but I don't recall any resolution of that plot thread. On the upside, I felt like there could have been an interesting sequel to the book developed from that thread.

This is my second Joshua Graham book to read. His writing style is raw and compelling. Terminus had me scratching my head, wondering where he got some of his concepts. Though he reveals a twist toward the end that helps explain part of his thought process, he still leaves many Biblical questions unanswered. This book is hard to put down, but I strongly recommend that you don't exchange it for serious Bible study of the topics it introduces.

Terminus is very Joshua-esque. The story moves very fast, the action is pretty close to non-stop, there's tension, drama, romance and some spiritual food to enjoy as well. The narrative moves at a break-neck speed and makes the reading experience one where you sit down and read for a while and realize you've just read 30% of the book already. While this story telling pace makes for a riveting reading experience most of the time, it also detracts from my ability to really connect with some of the characters or believe some of the things those characters do.

For instance, the main character, Nikolai, is an Angel who's sent to help 3 people die who if they do not, will supposedly cause great harm. Overlooking that the orders should have been an immediate red flag that he should have balked at, he accepts the assignment. One of these is a young homeless, suicidal woman. He goes there to assist her dying, ends up saving her, puts her up in a hotel, buys her a bunch of clothes, checks on her the next day, falls head over heels in love with her AND decides in the span of these last 24-36 hours with her to give up eternity as an Angel to be with her after revealing (and proving) to her he's an Angel??? For me personally, the pace of the story telling doesn't allow for relationships/decisions like these to be believable.....people complete total 180's from their current beliefs/outlook in the span of mere minutes and that's just not realistic 99% of the time, IMO. Real change usually takes real time. Finally, most of the characters aside from Lena and Nikolai seemed pretty one dimensional for the most part. We don't get to live in the others heads or be in their worlds enough to make them anything more than just pieces that are moved around in the narrative.

I know this seems like a negative review, but it's really not intended to be. I just think Joshua already does a lot of things really well - plotting the story, the twists/turns, the action, etc - that I just think the stories would be that much better with a bit more fleshed out characters who acted a bit more believably than the 180's that many of the characters do in minutes or hours at most.

All in all, a 3 1/5 to 4 star effort and one I would recommend.
