#BookReview: Almost Damned by Christopher Leibig

Synopsis: Defense attorney Samson Young has an uncanny ability to get even the so-called worst clients off the hook, as he ably demonstrated in Almost Mortal. In Almost Damned, little does Sam know that his most challenging cases are all leading up to one monumental trial, in which he will lay before the Court the visceral complexities of good vs. evil.

As Sam navigates his cases in Bennet County, it becomes increasingly apparent that his clients-old and new-are surprisingly interconnected, especially when old clients rise from the dead. Literally. He and his office are besieged by death threats and mysterious invitations, each one a clue that compels him to dig deeper into his own past. With each new discovery, Sam leads himself and his team deeper into a nether world in an attempt to bring redemption to his toughest clients of all-the descendants of the biblical Fallen Angels who have been walking the earth as humans for centuries, unable to find peace.

My Review: Reading the sample to this I was so hooked!! I think that my first impression was right on the money. That this book would make a fantastic movie.  I loved the characters and the flow but something about it was just missing something.  Parts of this book was great but others weren't.  I didn't think that it was overly religious even though a lot of this is biblical based.  However, the legal parts did take a little to get used to.  I think that readers that enjoy light religious stories as well as legal thrillers might fall hard for this one.  But for me it was lacking what I was hoping for.  Another thing about this book is that it is a book two. I did not realize that when I started reading it.  So I am kind of wanting to go back to read book one.  Unfortunately, I do not know if I am invested enough to do that. So if you are looking for a new thriller with paranormal themes check this one out.  It might be what you are looking for.
