It's been slightly over a year since Kellan Thorne first accepted the Sentinel's mantel, and its power was renewed in him. He thought destroying an Arch Demon and banishing his Chaotic opposite would have brought him more respite than it did. Now Creation itself is under threat, by a Cabal of Angels and Demons who have found a way to shatter the foundational pillars of Time itself. This dire warning is brought to the young Sentinel by an unlikely messenger, who risks all to enlist the aid of God's unchecked hand on the world.
Kellan must decide if he will stay true to his dead master's teachings and oppose all unnatural beings, or risk everything by trusting that they might rise above their natures in defense of a common threat. This sets off a whirlwind effort that crosses both centuries and miles, as Kellan, Shannon, Meghan, and new allies try desperately to stay one step ahead of the Cabal. Their efforts will take them back to medieval Scotland and through modern day Egypt, Ethiopia, and Vatican City. Along the way, Kellan will face new threats and form new alliances as his motley crew does its best to prevent the Cabal from destroying all our yesterdays.

Kellan Thorne has been the Sentinel for a year now, learning the ways of the role he took. However, visited by an ancient vampire, Thorne finds himself thrust into yet another universe threatening adventure. A Cabal of Angels and Demons have come together to destroy the foundation of time thus destroying creation.
Thorne must first rescue Shannon who has stayed far too long outside her time period. Aided by Meghan and the being known as Seramai, and many others Thorne travels to defeat the Cabal and save creation. He finds some unlikely supporters in his quest. Kellan’s interactions with Satan, the vampire and vampire’s father are delightfully hilarious!
The conversations Thorne has with himself are engaging, light and fun – almost like listening to “a squirrel on meth” as stated in his book. The characters are well-developed; Kellan, in particular, is delightful given his “gift of gab.” The book is fun, a quick listen and hooks the listener in early. I love this series!
Robert Ross has created a series that has adventure, fun, mischief, and well, one just can’t shut it off until the last word is spoken! Well developed, the plot moves smoothly. Descriptive and vivid imagery adds to the audiobook.
I think because it touches on so much – ancient world to the present day – that it is fascinatingly interesting and fun. I loved how Ross brought in Jarvis (an AI modeled after the AI in Ironman). The interaction between Jarvis and Kellan is hilarious!
The narrator, Nick Podehl is excellent! He is Kellan! He has his “squirrel on meth” conversations down pat; his voice is smooth, calm and draws in the listener completely. Oh my! I loved it! Can’t wait for book 3!
