Publisher's Summary

Out of the smoldering ruins of the war in heaven, the Archangels Raphael and Michael cannot believe the agreement made between God and his Morning Star, Lucifer. Unwilling to either destroy the fallen angel or leave him with a free hand upon the world, God sets in motion a struggle that will span the millennia from creation to present day. Two Sentinels are invested with the ability to bend the laws of creation to their will and each represents the primal forces of Order and Chaos. Throughout the centuries, Micah ben Judah has shouldered the burden of keeping legions of unnatural creatures in check, but no more. The time has come for Raphael to renew the Sentinel's power in another. He has found that successor in current day Atlanta. Kellan Thorne never thought he would ever have an angel come knocking. Sarcastic, irreverent, and prone to fits of profanity, Kellan is more at home making obscure references to Doctor Who and Star Wars than religious introspection. His life will change forever as the veil between worlds is torn free and he is placed at the center of a war of angels and demons in which he may be the biggest prize. Kellan must accept the power and burden of his own free will, but can Micah and Raphael keep him alive long enough to decide?

Fantastic Book!!!

Where does A Power Renewed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

At the top for Science Fiction.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Power Renewed?

The narration is spot on. The references to other books, movies, and pop culture add depth to the story. The character development draws you in and you understand the motivation of each character.

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

The characters come to life and pulls the story along.

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

When the main character kept his promise (don't want to spoil the book).

Any additional comments?

I thought the book had great writing, well-crafted plot and was a joy to listen to. I could hardly wait to finish the story.

5 STARS WELL EARNED

What made the experience of listening to A Power Renewed the most enjoyable?

References, references, references, powers, Angels, and Demons were great as well but all the nerdy references made it a constant joy.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Power Renewed?

Like Harry's Cloak... Gryffindor

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

Sorry, the best part about having Nick Podehl doing this book is hearing Kvothe's voice again. Come on Rothfuss hurry the hell up with book 3!!!!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Wibbly Wobbly.. heaven and hell... stuff.

Any additional comments?

Wow, just Wow. Robert Ross does an amazing job of creating a world of Angels, Demons, God, Man, and numerous supernatural creatures yet to be discovered. Aside from the astounding level of sarcasm and quick wit, which utilized every manner of pop culture reference, my favorite part of this world is the way in which the magic or power is used/explained. Reminiscent of Name of the Wind, the powers utilized within this tail always have some basis in reality (however stretched, twisted, or wibbly wobbly that reality is at times). This modern day setting provides a unique look into how this current generation might react when thrust into a world fantasy. The threads of pop culture references that have been interwoven throughout this tail are both astounding and varied, from Trekkies to Whovians, and from Wizards to Hobbits THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU!!!

New Urban Fantasy favorite

This book is a blast! If, like me, you are a fan of book series' like The Dresden Files, Sookie Stackhouse, Harry Potter, Ready Player One, Brandon Sanderson, and/or other urban fantasy/ sci-fi plus TV shows like Supernatural, Doctor Who, Star Trek etc..you will LOVE this book. This is the first in a proposed series. I can't wait to hear the next one. It's a cool concept, good story, well paced, funny, action packed and with really interesting characters. A total blast!! Nick Podehl did a great job narrating. I became a fan of Nick's narrative talents listening to him bring to life the novels of Patrick Rothfuss. All in all, this was really great fun. I loved it.
