Review for Fire, Fury, and Faith by ND Jones – Audible version
First, let me state this book is for mature audiences only. The sex scenes are graphic. Normally, I don’t like graphic scenes, but in this book they are meaningful to the story, so I was okay with it.
This is a story of warring tribes, angel and demons, dark and light, the bond of love, and the terror of hate. While the demons prove to be consistently bad, contaminating those around them, the angels come in different flavors. The warrior angels hunt demons and can be as blood thirsty as the demons they fight. And if they go too long without spiritual healing, they can lose their way. That is exactly what happens to our hero. When he becomes an angel, he seeks revenge on the demon who relentlessly tortures his beloved wife, but revenge has a long and terrible cost to himself and his wife.
I was impressed with both the maturity and beauty of the writing and the layers of meanings hidden within. I highly recommend this for adults who like a book that leaves you thinking about the deeper meanings beneath an intriguing tale.
And the narrator was fabulous, using many different voices to tell the tale!
I give this 5 stars
I was born and raised in Queens, NY, and I currently reside in Los Angeles, CA.
During my formative years I mainly expressed myself through art and music. Highlights include performing in the all-city Queens band as a saxophonist and copyrighting my own comic strip character. Later I was accepted in to a five year architecture degree program at the esteemed Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA.
Unfulfilled with architecture alone, I found new artistic outlets in the performing arts at CMU, while simultaneously studying architecture. I choreographed and danced in dance shows, modeled in runway shows, and acted in short films and mainstage plays.
Determined to follow my passion for performance, I went straight from CMU to CalArts in Valencia, CA, where I earned an MFA in acting.
Everything I have learned - from my early years of drawing and music, to my architectural years of spacial planning and design, to my time at conservatory acting training - continues to feed the art that I create with each project that I’m involved in.
