One of the things I love about many of Top Cow’s titles is the somewhat supernatural aspect to their heroes. Speaking of supernatural, some points in this story had me thinking of the television show Supernatural. SPOILERS:
The story starts off with what would seem a cop drama, which Top Cow is also good at portraying. But, as you get a couple of pages into it, it is apparent that there is much more to it than that. We have angels and demons apparently breaking a treaty by fighting each other, and angels named Michael and Gabriel, and a Council of Angels and Demons that have tried to keep the peace. The main character, Jonah is a cop who is pulled into the middle of everything, as he discovers similarities between something that happened to his partner and his own father.
If you enjoy cop dramas, and love stories with a supernatural twist to them, then you should definitely pick this book up. While not necessarily the most original idea, I can see this possibly becoming as big of a book for Top Cow as Witchblade and the Darkness.
