She's the Queen of Hell. He's the Son of God. They'll end humanity... together.
Nyx is the ruler of the banished Angels. When her flock returns home, she's stuck on Earth with none other than the Son of God.
Surprisingly, God's son tells her he was tricked into sacrificing himself for a cause he doesn't believe in - mankind's redemption. As his mortal body dies, the Son of God offers the Queen of Hell a paradise on Earth if she completes a single mission: helping him obliterate humanity.
Nyx launches a 1,000-year campaign of violence, sex, and betrayal to force God's people to worship her instead. From the back streets of Jerusalem to the Pope's bedchamber, Nyx and her companions work to destroy the worshippers of God.
What Nyx doesn't realize is that her arrangement with God's son isn't as simple as it seems. The Son of God has plans that nobody will see coming...
Plague of Angels is the first book in The Descended saga, a series of dark fantasy novels that provide a twist on an old story. If you like fantasy fused with religion, thought-provoking plots, and graphic violence, then you'll love John Patrick Kennedy's tale of the underworld.

I loved this, part paranormal, part love story and part something else entirely. It took a few chapters for me to really get into it but I was completely hooked once I had.
Very gory and strong sexual themes with the abuse of women and children graphically described, definitely not suitable for under 18s!
Good narrator who brought the story to life for me.
The ending is a real gut churner and I can't wait for the second!
I would recommend it to anyone with a reasonably strong stomach who is looking for something a bit different!
"An excellent read"
A cold, dark tale of manipulation, betrayal, lust and surprisingly, love. The narration was excellent as well.
"mispronouncing the main name :/"
mispronouncing the main name :/
i couldn't listen to it anymore. every time she pronounced "nYx" as "nix" my ears was hurting :/
besides that narrator is mediocre. story could be really cool i am guessing (seems like a nice setup) but narrator made it unpleasant to listen to.
