In bizarre acts of terrorism, a priest, a rabbi, and a bishop, well-known for their caring attributes, turn on their followers, and only the son of Lucifer can stop the growing madness in the phenomenal supernatural novel, Devil's Day (A Nephilim Thriller Book 4) by Jeff Altabef. The son of Lucifer, and now the proclaimed Anti-Christ, Stephen is endeavoring to prevent the end of days. While attending a mass, Stephen arrives in time to see the Bishop possessed by a malevolent conjurer and thwarts the good man's attempt to blow his congregation to kingdom come. The Fates believe the possession of God's men is in direct alignment with their loss of Sight, and they contact Stephen for his help. They confirm he has magical capabilities lying dormant beneath his angelic powers, and offer him a deal. For his help in defeating the voodoo practitioner possessing the holy men and blinding their Sight, they will assist him in discovering his magical abilities. In accepting their terms, not only is Stephen caught in the conflict between the dark and light angels but now he also has two factions of the magical world vying for his allegiance and the use of his powerful unnatural abilities. With the end of days at hand, and so many elements after him, can Stephen survive? Or will he become the ultimate sacrifice?

Devil's Day (A Nephilim Thriller Book 4) by Jeff Altabef is a phenomenal supernatural novel. Filled with action, drama, extraordinary characters, and a mesmerizing storyline, Mr. Altabef has created another brilliant masterpiece! Including the three sisters of Fate, Lucifer, Archangel Michael, Apollyon, and assorted magical beings, the unique characters along with the stunning plot create an unforgettable story. Engaging, witty, and relatable, the main characters are the cornerstone of the book. Having different perspectives on killing, both Stephen's and Hank's characters walk the fine line of good versus evil, making admirable protagonists and, at the same time, formidable adversaries. As a Harry Dresden fan, I found Stephen and Devil's Day to be comparable to the James Butcher Dresden Files series, and I loved every page of it. As the fourth book in a series, it is a thrilling adventure that I highly recommend it to everyone who loves fast-paced, action-packed supernatural novels with roguish heroes.

Devil’s Day is the fourth book in the Nephilim Thriller series and Steven, half-fallen angel/half-human Anti-Christ is up to his neck in light and dark angels, Magics, the Fates, and a pain in the butt sheriff as he tries to find the villain that is possessing priests and pastors, turning them into terrorists. The Fates are eager to involve Steven in stopping the evil being that, by using voodoo, hides their Sight and saps their magic. If that’s not enough, Steven’s father – Lucifer - has a plan to stop the end of the world. Steven isn’t sure he can trust him and devises his own plan. With his side-kick, priest Hank and bar manager Quinn, a beauty that has her sights set on Steven as more than just her boss, the adventure continues, but it doesn’t look to be a happy end for any of them.

My third book in the Nephilim series and Jeff Altabef has, once again, surprised me with new characters, a new adventure, and some of the best thriller writing I’ve ever read. Especially impressive for me is his skill in writing first-person narratives. Authoring great reads is no easy task and doing so in the first person is doubly difficult as the author has only one point of view with which to show all the action and motivation of several characters—Altabef brings it all together without, apparently, breaking a sweat! Devil’s Day is, for me, the best in this series and that’s saying something. Steven’s problems in finding and stopping the voodoo madman are compounded by more than crazy magic, flighty Fates, and light and dark angels; he is also emotionally strapped by competing loyalties and a potential romance that maybe isn’t what he'd hoped. Another roller coaster ride, directed by Jeff Altabef, starring some of the most memorable characters you’ll ever meet, in situations that will boggle your mind. I won’t even hint at the ending. It’s too emotionally charged to risk even the slightest spoiler. Suffice it to say that there is a strong indication of another book, another adventure in the making. That’s always good news and a happy ending for me and all fans of the Nephilim series.

Devil's Day is the fourth book in the Nephilim Thriller series by Jeff Altabef. The struggles of Steven continue as he tries to find a way to stop the End of Days. He has a big target on his back and now has to fight for his life while also fighting to protect everyone. Only the Fates can help him out, but their help can cost him a lot more than what he is prepared to give. Steven needs to find a madman who is using voodoo to possess the holy people of New York City and make them do horrible things. The Fates want Steven to stop him before he can wreak any more havoc. But one thing Steven has learned is that nothing is easy and nothing is simple. What will Steven do? Can he find this man? Or is this the end of the road for him?

Fast-paced and action-packed, Devil's Day is an absolutely brilliant novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat and wanting more. Steven is a smart man; he understands when the odds are not in his favor and makes decisions according to what is best for him in the grand scheme of things. Jeff Altabef handles the mystery behind the antagonist (I call him voodoo man) and allows readers to get lost in it. Now, voodoo man is equally smart and an opportunist like Steven. The two make great adversaries, and that makes the story even better. I am intrigued by the Fates as they are scary and a little flaky, but they are powerful players in the story. To say I loved this book is an understatement!
