Publisher's Summary

The war against the forces of darkness continues...

At age 15, Nicole Robertson was possessed by a demonic entity. She survived this ordeal thanks to a successful exorcism. Now, eight years later, Nicole is still haunted by the experience. But the nightmare isn't over. She is about to become the target of an apocalyptic cult led by a former elite soldier with a chilling planned for her future.

Only one man can save Nicole from a fate worse than death. Only one man stands between her and the apocalypse. His name is Mark Talon. And he is about to go up against his most dangerous enemy yet.

Critic Reviews

" Occult Assassin moves like a bullet exploding from Talon's 9mm Glock." (Nicholas Sansbury Smith, best-selling author of Extinction Horizon and Orbs)

An amazing second book.

Any additional comments?

I loved book 1 of this but I have to say that this one was even better! It blew me away. The summary is spot on so let's get to my thoughts.

Talon is back and more composed and able to do his job better. In book 1 he was learning the ropes but here he knows what to do so we see more action from him plus he has a benefactor so there is more weaponry and knowledge.

This brought more emotions to the surface while reading, for me anyway. I felt so sorry for Nicole when she was young, but even more so now because she knows what to expect. I find possession stories to be so extremely scary and this is no different. The idea of a thing being inside you is just so shudder inducing that I was holding my breath at those scenes. Then the author adds in twist after twist and I was left reeling.

Once again, this is high octane action and adventure. Once I started I couldn't stop and listened to it in a day again. It has everything a great book needs and more. This book is pure entertainment and I could see it as a mini series cause it's that good.

In all, a stellar second book. I loved everything about it and will definitely be keeping my eye on this author. Bring on more Talon and co!!!!!

Once again, James Foster gave a flawless performance. He really knows how to bring the listener into the story and keep their attention throughout. Definitely a narrator that delivers all the time.

Thrill ride of a book

STORY REVIEW......

Mark Talon is once again battling evil occult followers. This time he's out to save a young formally possessed woman, Nicole Robertson who is being targeted. This is another great book by the talented Mr. Massa. The character of Talon is a mixture of Jason Bourne and Batman with just a dash of Hellboy thrown in. He's smart, sarcastic, crafty, quick on his feet, dark, haunted and knows how to kick some serious butt. The story is fast paced and really grabs you in.

AUDIO REVIEW......

I found the narrator to be much better this time around. The characters are far better voiced and easier to recognize who is who. Like book one this book was a delight to listen to. Loved the story.

I will most definitely will be continuing with reading the series and highly recommend this book for reading.

YAY for the second time!

What a great sequel. Occult Assassin #2: Apocalypse Soldier is a fun second book in a series i am loving more and more! The author knows how to thrill and create suspense. This novel even raises the bar on the last novel, and that is hard since i gave the last 5 out of 5 too! So if you liked 1 you will love this! I can't recommend this book more! It’s full of twists and tuns and you ride an emotional roller coaster as you hear it. It's pure entertainment!! I am looking forward to more Occult Assassin books.

James Foster does it again! He shows great voice control while the tension of the storyline builds again! It so fun when a man you loved in book 1 returns to read it again! The fantastic voice from Heart to Heart: Ashton Ford, Psychic Detective and Occult Assassin #1: Damnation Code does it again! James Foster is now my official my favorite on Audible! Nothing more, nothing less! 4 hrs and 45 mins with pure good book!

As with the first book, the narration was top notch. There is nothing like listening to a story told by grand performer.

I enjoyed listening to the story and how well it flowed from the first book tot he second. There was a surprise return character that had evolved in some surprising ways. I am confidant that if you enjoyed the first, you will enjoy the second.

Amazing

Any additional comments?

This is an excellent series. I love books with a different spin on my favorite genres and this certainly fits the bill. Mark Talon, ex Delta Force soldier, returns with more action and even creepier demons. The story is fast paced and really draws you in. I like that you get more of a glimpse into the main character Mark Talon the man and what motivates him to do what he does. He's almost superhuman in a way. Great job by the author and by all means keep them coming. I'm in the for ride. The narrator also does an excellent job. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Another fast paced Urban fantasy.

It is a great quick listen, with an engaging main character, a Spec Ops soldier now fighting the forces of the occult after his fiancé is killed by cultists. He uses these specialized skills to stop cultists from raising supernatural destruction and chaos. The plot is fast paced, jetting across the world, with lots of believable action. James Fosters narration is well done, bringing the story to life. Any fan of Heath Stallcup's Monster Squad books should enjoy this series.

Great series, although I enjoyed book 1 a bit more

Would you listen to Occult Assassin #2: Apocalypse Soldier again? Why?

Probably not, I don't tend to listen to audiobooks multiple times... Perhaps in several years...

What other book might you compare Occult Assassin #2: Apocalypse Soldier to and why?

I don't find it fair to compare titles, it doesn't tend to do them justice

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

He's an excellent narrator and brings the story to life. Reading the book just wouldn't be the same, he brings the excitement, along with the authors story.

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

Not really, most books don't bring on many strong emotions for me.

A warrior exorcist

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would to some one who liked this genre.

What other book might you compare Occult Assassin #2: Apocalypse Soldier to and why?

The Mitch Rapp series by Vince Flynn. Talon is a lot like Mitch Rapp. His love got killed by the bad guys and he kicks terrorist's asses. The main difference is that Mitch Rapp fights political terrorists and Talon fights occult terrorists.

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

The drama of hearing a story a story and more personality to the characters.

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

Warrior Exocist

Any additional comments?

Lots of action and edge of your seat suspense. Good vs Evil, Light vs Dark themed supernatural thriller. Not at all boring!!

Rather than Talon being a Lone Wolf warrior, I think the author should consider building a team. There have been some good candidates in both this book and the first book that would make for good team members. Talon is use to working in a team and as he comes to terms with his personal grief I think a team should be developed. Just my personal thoughts.

Tense Action-Filled Supernatural Thriller

What made the experience of listening to Occult Assassin #2: Apocalypse Soldier the most enjoyable?

The performance likely made it the most enjoyable as James Foster's narration enhanced all of the scenes of excitement and tension instead of taking any of the energy out of the story.

What other book might you compare Occult Assassin #2: Apocalypse Soldier to and why?

I would compare it to the original Occult Assassin because it's the closest I've heard in comparison with this one. That was a great experience but this has shown that the author and perhaps the narrator have gotten better at this style of story. I'm definitely interested in seeing where it goes following this point.

Have you listened to any of James Foster’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to the Occult Assassin #1 done by James, and where that performance was pretty great, this seemed to possibly be even a step better. That might be more of a result of the improvement in story by the author instead though. I would definitely be interested in seeing more of his work however.

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

Beware the Apocalypse Soldier? (I've never been good at this question)

Any additional comments?

I received the code for this story for free in exchange for an honest review and it has not changed my opinion of the work.

Better and better

This book was even better than the first! More action, deeper story. Mark comes up against his nemesis. It grabs you in the beginning and doesn't let up until the end. Hard to put down. This one, I will listen to again. Mark's drive for vengeance fuels him and keeps him focused as he racks up the body count in his fight against evil. Good, good, good! The narration was even better. The first one was great too, but in this one, he really settles into the story and characters.

The Return of the Occult Assassin

What did you like most about Occult Assassin #2: Apocalypse Soldier?

This is a great follow on from the first book and moves at a fast pace. In parts, it tells the same scene from three characters view points, which I found interesting.

Who was your favorite character and why?

No contest, the Occult Assassin!! Mark Talon is developing into a good character and looking forward to future books.

What about James Foster’s performance did you like?

Again James delivers a polished performance and keeps the story moving along nicely. It seems more polished than the first, looking forward to listening to more from James.
