Once again, C. J. Bilbrey has captured the essence of life where I live in the depths of the Quad Cities. He has built for us, even more, the concept of an unsung and almost unwilling hero, overwhelmed in his desire to stop evil in its tracks where the homeless, the poverty-stricken and the gangs all live. He captures perfectly the people who live here, as he did in The Good Soldier. Initially, I had started the second book on the heels of the first. The opening scene in the second book stopped me dead in my tracks. Who hangs a 9 year old! I had been so involved in the first that to see this opening was far too much for me. Bilbrey’s ability to bring this description to life goes well beyond my near-addiction to the television series Law and Order. I had to wait a few weeks before I could pick it up again.

This hanging was the first of several described in this book, all with a unique connection, but this particular hanging started a gang war. Still, the sinister motive behind the hangings may prove gang war to be the least of our hero’s problems. As Bilbrey says, “A new presence has revealed itself, challenging Vanguard’s ability to protect his home, and Angus’ ability to balance his life.” Based heavily in religious fervor and interpretation, this story, a follow up to The Good Soldier, is just as intense and good as the original. What, in Angus, will prove to be his strength and key to survival for both his family and himself?

It surprises me that neither of these books has been converted to a graphic novel and/or a marvelous piece of anime. While I was never a comic book collector or a fantasy fanatic, I would buy them both in a heartbeat. ( )
