BOOK REVIEW: Infernal Gates by Michael J. Webb

As most of my regular readers know, I review books for many of the Christian publishers (Tyndale, Zondervan, B&H, Thomas Nelson, Howard, David C. Cook, Bethany House, Abingdon Press, River North, Minotaur, FaithWords) and I found this new book by Michael J. Webb, which was independently published, to be of the same high quality.

The book begins with several seemingly unrelated stories, each one interesting in itself. I felt the switch from one story to another was perfectly timed so that I didn't forget what was happening in one while reading another. About half-way through the book, the stories begin to come together and we eventually learn how all the stories are related.

I enjoyed the action, the suspense, and the depth of information the author provides. The characters came alive for me and the descriptions were so vivid I could see where the action took place. I was amazed at the level of detail and wondered how one person could know everything that was discussed in the book.

One warning. This is not a book for the squeamish. There is some demonic violence with blood and gore. It, too, is vividly described. I usually don't pick that type of book to read, but I'm glad I read this one and I felt the bloody parts were well done.
