 Book Review of Halo of the Damned sponsored by Enchanted Book Tours

Title: Halo of the Damned
Author: Dina Tosto
Genre: Paranormal, Horror, Romance

A chain of advertising agencies, a new breed of humans, and a fallen angel to worship…

Andel Talistokov is known for his slick advertising agencies across the globe. He is a fallen angel that uses advertising as a weapon for Satan's work. His growing power emboldens him to break several of Hell’s Commandments. Furious with his arrogance, Satan commands him to return to Hell after finding his own replacement. Yezidism, an ancient angel worshiping religion, quietly expands throughout the West. Armaros appears as a guest of honor during their ceremonies. He mates with young women to produce nephilim, a mixed race of humans and angels. They are alone and unprepared for their supernatural power. Joanna Easterhouse, a recovering drug addict, steps out of prison shortly after her mother's fatal accident. She and her sister, Kim, unravel their mother's secretive past. Intrigued, they learn their bloodline is part of a celestial legacy. Both worlds collide. Halo of the Damned is a horrifying tale that weaves research together with suspenseful twists and turns.

Book Review:

At first I was confused by the two different story lines, but eventually they cross.  Still I was a little hazy as to how they were connected, but boy when they connect…fireworks.  One story line is about Andel Talistokov and his servant Marcos.  It starts with Andel killing a girl and then licking up the blood and eating parts of her.  Eventually he saves her head in a freezer in his basement… can you say creepy?
The second story line is about two sisters, Joanne and Kim, and Kim’s daughter, Maria. It starts with Joanne being released from prison for intent to sell drugs.  Joanne has been using drugs trying to silence the voices in her head, now I’m thinking schizophrenia because that’s where my mind goes, but later you learn that her mother also heard voices before she died in a car accident shortly before the story started.

Turns out Joanne, Kim, and Maria have angel blood in them, they are Nephilim.  This story is an interesting view of the fall of Satan and his angels/demons.  The story is unique in that most stories about angels don’t talk about the fall; just differentiate between angels and demons.  This story actually makes an attempt to explain the fall and how that has impacted everything.

I give this story 4 out of 5 clouds.
