Publisher's Summary

The acclaimed actor makes his fiction debut with this enthralling urban fantasy in which a holy warrior must convince a doctor with no faith to help stop a powerful demon and his minions from succeeding in creating hell on earth - a thrilling adventure of science and faith, good and evil, damnation and salvation.

Imagine that everyone you have ever known or loved was forced against their will into a state of demonic possession and spiritual slavery. Imagine an unholy cabal of the world's richest and most powerful men directing this sinister plan in order to cement their unbridled control of the planet.

Imagine two heroes emerging from that darkness to do battle with the forces of evil.

Set in the mean streets of Chicago, Talon of God is the action-packed adventure centered around Lauryn Jefferson, a beautiful young doctor who is dragged into a seemingly impossible battle against the invisible forces of Satan's army and their human agents that are bent on enslaving humanity in a mission to establish the kingdom of hell on Earth.

But Lauryn is a skeptic, and it's only as she sees a diabolical drug sweep her city and begins to train in the ways of a spirit warrior with the legendary man of God Talon Hunter that she discovers her true nature and inner strength. Facing dangerous trials and tests, it's a true baptism by fire. And if they fail, millions could die. And rivers of blood would flow throughout the land.

Imagine such horror. Such pain. And imagine what it would take to fight against it. For only the strongest and most faithful will survive.

Get ready. Armageddon approaches quickly.

Haven't finished yet, but needed to say

The story was good, but the narrator has been extremely bad. I'm going to push through, because I like the story thus far, but in the future I hope this person either works better or a new narrator is chosen all together.

What an awesome book

If you could sum up Talon of God in three words, what would they be?

Best Audible Book

What was one of the most memorable moments of Talon of God?

My favorite moment was when Lauryn pulled St. Luke into the black cube.

What does Malik Yoba bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I didn't like him at all doing Lauryn's voice but I thought he did a great job with the narration and some of the male voices, particularly the Dad and Lincoln Black. BUT, if there is ever book I can't imagine ANYONE other than Mahershala Ali playing Lincoln Black (think Cottonmouth Stokes from Luke Cage). He was MADE for that part. He was the actual embodiment of evil throughout the book and not St. Luke.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The entire book was pretty moving but I think it kicked everything up a notch when Lauryn began to slowly realize her calling.

Any additional comments?

I can't wait for the next book. I think this book was great for Believers, unbelievers, people of various faiths, people who love Sci-Fi, and people who love mystery.

I enjoyed the story...

So, yeah, I enjoyed the story and wish there was a little more to it because I felt like they rushed to the end a little and that the antagonists were very predictable and kind of one note. I could handle those things because I felt like I was watching a movie that was building to a sequel. Isn't everything these days? My biggest disappointment was with Malik Yoba. I felt like his reading of the story had too many unnecessary pauses almost has if he couldn't get the line out in one breath or isn't a strong reader. Whatever the situation it took me out of the story, often. I heard other audiobooks with great readings that made the story fun and exciting.

Great listening, really enjoyed the storyline.

I really enjoyed listening to this book it kept my interest throughout. The characters were easily visable and entertaining. I did however think at times it was more 'goodie-goodie' than true to life in some areas but this did Not deter my enjoyment.

Fantastic read!!!

Fantastic read! I was initially quite skeptic as it was written by a movie star...and this was his first fiction writing at that. On top of it, it was written by two different authors...it felt like having two captains on a single boat. However, I was intrigued at the same time for the same reasons above so I had to find out about it myself and I'm absolutely glad I did it. All my concerns quickly diminished. I first went through Talon of God via Audible audiobook which was exceptionally well narrated. As it's almost twelve hours long, I was planning on taking a couple of hours a day on this title. However, it was near impossible to do so as there was always another suspense around each corner. Perhaps I'm biassed of the fact the Wesley Snipes is a movie star but that surely helped me visualize the reading and my mind was creating mega blockbuster movie scenes as the passionate narrations went on. I just purchased the Kindle version of it so I can actually read it as it was originally intended by the authors. If I wasn't told there were two authors for this title, I wouldn't have known it. Story flows flawlessly and quickly just like Wesley's martial arts skills.
