Talon of God is a treat for lovers of the fantasy horror genre. The new book from action actor Wesley Snipes spins a theological tale of suspense and conflict as the fate of humanity—their souls, that is—hangs in the balance.

The story centers around female heroine, Lauryn Jefferson, a young, sometimes disenchanted, doctor at Chicago's Mercy Hospital, who suddenly finds herself ensnared in the battle of good versus evil when she is attacked by one of her patients, a homeless veteran,  possessed by a supernatural, demonic force. Lauryn is spared of certain slaughter by Talon Hunter, a sword-wielding, tall, cloaked figure who instinctively comes off as Snipes' popular comic book character, Blade— but with a message. And it's that message that catapults Snipes new book into an action-packed, cinematic depiction of hell on earth.

With first-time fellow writer, Ray Norman, Snipes manages to deliver one of the most enjoyable and thought-provoking tales this year. With themes of faith, Gospel, inspiration, and religious undertones, Norman and Snipes suck readers in from the first paragraph—especially with Norman's clear and concise writing style that's excellent at setting up scenes and drawing believable characters quickly and efficiently.

The story places the protagonist at odds with her devout Baptist father and rapper baby brother, setting up for an estranged relationship that only faith can heal, which becomes the subplot of the story.

Together, with Talon and her vice cop ex-boyfriend, Will, Lauryn uncovers a diabolical conspiracy launched by billionaire Christopher St. Luke to use a sulfur-laced drug additive to demonize Chicago's Windy City. The action just keeps coming from there—including the very imaginative flying hell fortress, which was an appealing addition to the story's fantasy element.

Ultimately, Snipes doesn't take his readers to Sunday school with this new book. He takes them into a page-turning elation that will have you wanting more even after the final climax.
