Book Review: Sons of Cain by Val Bianco

From the Book Description:

“An ancient group of twelve unspeakably powerful men are prepared to implement mass suicide in the United States. Already in control of the Congress and the Presidency, all that they lack is the Supreme Court. The only thing standing between these SONS OF CAIN and the lives of the Court is a small group of dedicated warriors.

Wealthy ex SEAL, Nick Rieper and his dozen “Knights of Longinus” have pledged their lives and fortunes to battle international Satanism. Battle is joined as they engage the Cainites and their demon leader, Namon, in mortal combat.”

My Thoughts:

What can I say possibly say about Sons of Cain? I don’t even know how to review the book. IT’S THAT GOOD. A few words to describe the book that come to mind:

Riveting.

Thrilling.

Page-turning.

Crazy good.

Captivating.

Scary.

Sons of Cain holds your attention from the Prologue to Epilogue and every page in between. The reader doesn’t just witness the fight between good and evil in the book – the reader experiences it.

What makes the book scary isn’t that fact that it clearly points out the spiritual battle going on around us, which many of us are completely clueless about. What makes it scary is that Sons of Cain gives a very realistic picture of how the battle could be played out in real life; especially since this, this and this, is in fact real.

One of the things I loved about this book is how naturally and seamlessly he weaves in various teachings of the Catholic Church, without being preachy or overbearing. The protagonist and his men (including the priest in the story) are unapologetically Catholic, and openly share and talk about the faith often throughout the book. At the same time, the characters are realistic and “normal”. I also loved reading the transformation of the female character. All the characters were like “friends” to me by the end of the book.

Oh, and How Val portrays the evil characters is eerily realistic. When he talked about some of the evil men and angels the reader can almost smell the stench of evil coming from the book. I always try to fall asleep while praying, but while I was reading this book I was absolutely clutching my rosary and praying for spiritual protection!

In short, if you enjoy reading fast-paced, thrilling Catholic novels, you will LOVE this book. 🙂

I can’t thank Val Bianco enough for kindly offering me a copy of Sons of Cain to read in exchange for a review. Thank you, Val!

I give this book my first ever five (5) star rating.
