THE FLESH OF FALLEN ANGELS by Roy C. Booth and R. Thomas Riley (2012 Grand Mal Press / 178 pp / eBook)
Booth and Riley have saddled up a wild cast for this pulpy blast that's a cross between a spaghetti western and Tales from the Crypt's DEMON KNIGHT film.
Gibson Blount travels from town to town, attempting to protect citizens from the fallen angels who are bent on destroying everything in their path. Told in a Now/Then format, the authors slowly reveal why Blount does what he does, culminating in a gory, action-packed finale that had me on the edge of my seat.
While demon-themed horror stories get tiring with the appearance of "Legion" in almost every one dating as far back as Blatty's THE EXORCIST, this time we're treated to a new take on demons and even hell itself. Blount's allies--from a priest to a prostitute to the legendary confederate guerilla William Quantril--are all as interesting as he is, as are the several fallen angels attempting to take down the town and then the world.
