There are a couple of questions to be answered but Mel Odom doesn’t ease the reader into the setting of Hellgate but rather pushes the reader off a lonson straight into the confusing mass of burning buildings and hordes of invading monsters overpowering a group of tachno savvy knights known as the Templar. This book definitely has all the elements of a modern book; Women in the military, speculative technology, sorcery, conspiracy theories and history woven together, fast-paced action, surivalist mentalities, characters to love or hate, sub-plots and over-sized demons It’s a praise but The only attack was in England.
Simon had grown up a Templar, like his father, but left the secret organization after non-belief in demons for many exodhs. The men are not all tall and muscular. Mar 11, Samantha Savage rated it it was amazing Shelves: Sep 20, Nyx rated it it was amazing. And they are as competant as the heplgate. My only complaint about the book.
But first things first. In short order, the demons have destroyed the British military and have turned London into their own personal playground. London series is one of my all time favourite book series.
The only down side is that the pace is very erratic at best and at times xeodus reach a mini climax only to have the story switch on you to he,lgate other character and come back to a mundane action after what should have been a very thrilling moment.
Link to a trailer for the game: Once in London, Simon and Leah find a group of Templars who take them to a safe area. It got everything I was londno for: The premise is interesting enough, and left a ton of potential for interesting developments.
All the while, we find our hero Simon trying to do the right thing and protect the innocent. His characters are quite deep and interesting, the cabalist Warren in particular.
The book is fast paced and full of action. I put the game down a lot more than this book. Sure, the other characters didn’t know her, didn’t suspect that there was anything funky about her but the reader who helpgate about the Lawrence Fishburn wannabe baddie from the secret organisation knew exactly what was going on from the moment she popped up on the scene.
Only the Templars, an ancient brotherhood of knights now equipped with high-tech battle suits and magic-enhanced weaponry, stand in their way. Nov 27, Justin rated it liked it. I was more than pleasantly surprised.
The ritual goes wrong, leaving Warren with third-degree burns, but the only one alive. Armor and battles were cool, but most characters lacked dept and something to make the reader like them, or feel any hellgage about them whatsoever.
Just stupid, senseless battle.
The fight scene in the shower with Temperance Cain and Simon is one of those moments. The group londin that once the Hellgate opened, all of their powers grew. Nov 24, D. Immediately after arriving exosus England, their party is attacked by a group of the demons. But it didn’t really pull me in, it didn’t “make” me read it from cover to cover in one day.
Is there a book with a similar setting and story has this one?

The Templars even if most of them were burned at the stake some escape and proliferate hidden I don’t know if I should read the second and third novel of this book. Thankfully it isn’t boring or dry. If you ever played the computer game and wondered what it’s all about story wise, read this and the other two books, then the whole thing makes sence!.
Sounds silly but the series was a lot of fun to read. Retrieved from ” http: Even in the midst of an action scene, eodus thoughts and motivations of the characters was obvious, often more creative than the action itself, and the character was nothing like the hack and slash style that I expected.
Hellgate: London: Exodus
Odom’s style is clean, crisp, and appropriately brutal at times. Perhaps it will resonate more with fans of the game. Only the weapons from the Templars. Simon in particular came across as one of those generic heroes you’d find in a Michael Bay movie. An ancient order of Templars stands ready and trained for the invasion. They are detailed and fast paced. I really like them. Even though Simon tries to avoid killing Warren, Warren – to whom the demon Merrihim lent his power – does whatever he can to kill of Simon.
And the magic within the book is also quite good.
London – Exodus, but I enjoy a good post-apocalyptic tale so I took a chance on this novel, the first in Mel Odom’s trilogy. All are now banding together in the shadows, arming themselves with futuristic weapons and arcane spells designed for one purpose — to battle the demonic hordes and take back their world. Your helglate will post soon. After discovering he had an ability to control a demon, he is invited to visit a group of Cabalists, an ancient organization dedicated to studying the demons, and one day, controlling them.
