Devil's Dance by Jeff Altabef is the second book in his Nephilim Thriller series and features the first person account of Steven, a Nephilim, born of a fallen angel father and a human mother. Steven has chosen to side with the angels in a war against demons, a curious decision as he freely admits enjoying his avocation… killing. Still, an angel promised him redemption for even God needed warriors on his side. In a sleepy tourist town, gruesome murders are occurring and Steven has been asked to help solve the mystery. Somehow, they're connected to the war and an amazing new technology engineered to make people smarter… but does it make them smarter or deadly?
Though part of the Nephilim Thriller series, Jeff Altabef's Devil's Dance is a stand-alone novel that combines action and adventure with aesthetic wordsmith skills equal to the literary masters of our time. "I'm lost in the moment—her eyes are an emerald sea—the sparkle, the life, and the pain she'd endured all swim in the water" is but one example of the expressive prose smoothly integrated into the fast-paced action. Altabef mixes a mystery thriller with a character-set right out of biblical lore, without a hint of religiosity, and makes it work to perfection. The protagonists are easily empathetic and familiar; the villains are exceptionally nasty and abhorrent. Readers of science fiction, fantasy, and action, with references to heaven and hell, will surely find Devil's Dance the first step into a growing love affair with the Nephilim Thriller series and the writing of Jeff Altabef.
