BROKEN ANGEL by Sigmund Brouwer

Broken Angel is an imaginative tale that twists tyranny on its head. What would happen if a group of Christians separated themselves from the world and created a culture that combines advanced technology with Old Testament law?

With echoes of George Orwell's 1984 and M. Night Shyamalan's The Village, author Sigmund Brouwer weaves a frightening story that establishes a society where Christian beliefs are imposed through earthly power. Instead of purging sin, a new kind of evil is unleashed and freedom is stripped away.

At the heart of the story is Caitlyn, a woman trying to escape the nation of Appalachia and reach the Outside. But she's being hunted by a demonic bounty hunter named Mason, a killer who knows a dark secret about Caitlyn's past.

This is the first book in a series of stories by Brouwer. The action is fast-paced with lots of secrets and no unrealistic surprises. The faint of heart should be warned that there are a few scenes of torture. I look forward to the second installment of this series, Flight of Shadows.

4 out of 5
