Product Description

Product Description

In the next Installment of The Judas Curse, Detective Ben Stanford is ready to put the past at rest. Without warning, he’s pulled down once again into the chaos of gods, theology, and mystery. Told that his sister is alive and the two immortals, Mark and Judas, have been kidnapped by the treacherous goddess, Nike, Ben must find a way to rescue the pair before she can harness their powers.

While Mark waits alone, forced to write out the story of how their powers came to be, and Judas lay tortured by the angry Goddess, a reluctant Ben must enlist the help of a hesitant being from the ancient Norse Pantheon.

Time is ticking, and the hard-headed detective must use everything he learned in the past to prevent another disaster, which could potentially wipe-out the human race.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Coontinuation of an epic series! 19 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback
The Judas Kiss, Book Two of the Judas Curse series does not disappoint! Graff picks up right where she left off in Book One. The mix of religion, mythology, and skepticism makes for a very intriguing and interesting read. Character development is fluid and natural. The back story of Mark, Judas, and Jesus is well done and ties the past to the present nicely. Ben continues his battle, both internally and externally. It's his human experience that kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next. I was pleasantly surprised to see him turn some corners and open his mind a little more in this book.

Graff's writing is engaging and I found it very easy to lose track of time reading her work. I kept thinking to myself, "just one more chapter." I strongly recommend giving this book, and the entire series, a look. I'm eagerly anticipating Book three. 5 well-deserved stars!

The Judas Kiss

I have finally finished this book! That isn't a bad thing, it was an easy book to read, perhaps now I can get some sleep at night, as it was very hard to put down.

In the first book; The Awakening; Angella created a story where mythical Gods are interwoven into modern religion. A very interesting and; in someways, brave; premise.

This the 2nd book in the series, starts where the 1st book left off, and immediately you are drawn back into this semi-mythical drama. As you are drawn back in, the feelings and sympathies you had for the characters re-surface and new ones are brought to light.

It is a very well written book, as I said drawing you into the story and not really letting you back out, even when I wasn't reading the book I did find myself thinking about the story. Even now having finished reading, I am curious, excited and baffled as to how the next book will pan out. Obviously the heroes will win the day eventually, but it is the journey more than the actual destination that is the key; although if the bad guys won wouldn't that be the most amazing twist ever ;-)

The bit I really liked was Mark/Markus/Makabi's story that was interwoven within the modern day story-line, an alternative version of Christ and his life.

The philosophy and knowledge behind the books premise are exemplary, with Angella drawing on her own passion for theology and creative writing, this is the book that Dan Brown can only wish The Da Vinci Code could have been, it is more 3D than The Da Vinci Code, you seem to care for the characters more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read 28 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Angella Graff's The Judas Kiss is an interesting an novel read, with a theme and story line unlike any I've read before and kudos to the author for that feat alone. Where mortals and mythical Gods collide to make the story a fascinating fantasy the jobs of the characters and roles they play bring it down to earth to move the story along in what is a well crafted and believable read. I particularly liked the flash back to the background of Jude, the characters that the story revolves around which is intelligently and courageously written drawing on the authors background in religious studies. Graff weaves an interesting tale that is never offensive while diving into an alternative theory of how it may have actually existed some two thousand years ago. Credit is due for the author's brave and out of the box story telling which I enjoyed reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 22 Feb 2013
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
"The Judas Kiss" by Angella Graff is the second in her Judas Curse series. The first instalment, "The Awakening" introduces Ben, the detective who gets stuck with helping Jude and Mark, two Immortals chased for their powers by ancient Gods who `ride' in human bodies. For the fan of action packed thrillers and fantasy stories this book - like its predecessor - is great fun with a lot of suspense and enough unpredictability to make you turn those pages as quickly as you can read.
On a more serious note it is a very ambitious enterprise to mix and match genre's and bring together elements from different mythologies and religions and something I was curious to see how it would develop in this second book. While the first book might have suffered from being the first in the series which introduces the storyline, characters and themes, "The Judas Kiss" allows Graff to exploit her solid set up from before and be playful with the characters and the supernatural elements.
While one thread of the book continues in modern day San Diego where immortals fight over Jude, another thread tells the story of Jude [Jehuda] and his twin brother Jeshua [Jesus] two thousand years ago - through the eyes of their `adopted brother' Mark. In this part of the book Graff's background in theology and history comes out splendidly in that she paints an accurate picture of the times and characters, but she also introduces teachings, theories and alternative beliefs about Jesus and his story. Luckily not in the flat and fast way the Da Vinci Code used to exploit such themes but in a much more solid and founded way.
