Armageddon Bound is the first book in the Demon Squad series featuring Frank “Triggaltheron” Trigg and his demonic and angelic cohorts where the fate of the world is at stake. Frank Trigg is a prototypical anti-hero, the nephew of Lucifer. Frank spurned his uncle’s offer to became the anti-Christ and now spends his time battling demons and stemming Armageddon. In Armageddon Bound, the demon Asmoday makes an alliance with the angel Gabriel. Frank works for DRAC (think Homeland Security battling supernatural forces) with his cohorts of angels, wizards and psychics.
Frank is invariably less powerful than the foes he has to battle and takes a hellacious beating whenever he tangles with them. The good thing is that Frank can take a solid butt whoopin’ with the best of them. He also has a libido that goes into overdrive twenty-four-seven. As if things aren’t bad enough for Frank, his ex-wife, a succubus, has hired assassins to take him out . Our beloved anti-hero has to literally go to hell and back in order to fight the forces of evil and save the Earth. What I especially liked about this novel is the voice that Marquitz has captured. It becomes very easy to picture Frank and the other characters. Marquitz also has done an exceptional job of creating life-life memorable characters. The book takes place at a frenetic pace and the action never lets up. The climactic ending delivers where victory seems impossible for Frank Trigg and DRAC. Armageddon Bound is a must read and I can’t wait to read the other books in the series.
