Summary

Out of the smoldering ruins of the war in heaven, the Archangels Raphael and Michael cannot believe the agreement made between God and his Morning Star, Lucifer. Unwilling to either destroy the fallen angel or leave him with a free hand upon the world, God sets in motion a struggle that will span the millennia from creation to present day. Two Sentinels are invested with the ability to bend the laws of creation to their will and each represents the primal forces of Order and Chaos. Throughout the centuries, Micah ben Judah has shouldered the burden of keeping legions of unnatural creatures in check, but no more. The time has come for Raphael to renew the Sentinel's power in another. He has found that successor in current day Atlanta. Kellan Thorne never thought he would ever have an angel come knocking. Sarcastic, irreverent, and prone to fits of profanity, Kellan is more at home making obscure references to Doctor Who and Star Wars than religious introspection. His life will change forever as the veil between worlds is torn free and he is placed at the center of a war of angels and demons in which he may be the biggest prize. Kellan must accept the power and burden of his own free will, but can Micah and Raphael keep him alive long enough to decide?

5 STARS WELL EARNED

What made the experience of listening to A Power Renewed the most enjoyable?

References, references, references, powers, Angels, and Demons were great as well but all the nerdy references made it a constant joy.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Power Renewed?

Like Harry's Cloak... Gryffindor

What does Nick Podehl bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Sorry, the best part about having Nick Podehl doing this book is hearing Kvothe's voice again. Come on Rothfuss hurry the hell up with book 3!!!!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Wibbly Wobbly.. heaven and hell... stuff.

Any additional comments?

Wow, just Wow. Robert Ross does an amazing job of creating a world of Angels, Demons, God, Man, and numerous supernatural creatures yet to be discovered. Aside from the astounding level of sarcasm and quick wit, which utilized every manner of pop culture reference, my favorite part of this world is the way in which the magic or power is used/explained. Reminiscent of Name of the Wind, the powers utilized within this tail always have some basis in reality (however stretched, twisted, or wibbly wobbly that reality is at times). This modern day setting provides a unique look into how this current generation might react when thrust into a world fantasy. The threads of pop culture references that have been interwoven throughout this tail are both astounding and varied, from Trekkies to Whovians, and from Wizards to Hobbits THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU!!!

Entertaining and fast paced.

This was an enjoyable listen. The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars was that it seemed like some chunks were cut out of the plot. I felt like there were at least another few hours worth of story that should have been included in this book. I assume the author will address these missing parts in future books, but it made the plot pacing and the depth of the story feel too fast and a bit too flat in the second half of the book.

Still well worth the credit though.

New Urban Fantasy favorite

This book is a blast! If, like me, you are a fan of book series' like The Dresden Files, Sookie Stackhouse, Harry Potter, Ready Player One, Brandon Sanderson, and/or other urban fantasy/ sci-fi plus TV shows like Supernatural, Doctor Who, Star Trek etc..you will LOVE this book. This is the first in a proposed series. I can't wait to hear the next one. It's a cool concept, good story, well paced, funny, action packed and with really interesting characters. A total blast!! Nick Podehl did a great job narrating. I became a fan of Nick's narrative talents listening to him bring to life the novels of Patrick Rothfuss. All in all, this was really great fun. I loved it.

awesome

Loved it! at first i thought I was getting annoyed at the main character because I felt he was so rash and well stupid...but then as I continied to listen to the story I slowly started to love...his rashness, his act first think later approach made him feel real with all his faults. I dont think all the pop references were bad...i didnt even understand most of them but i think the frequency which he says it really just adds to his personality and made him feel more real..besides who doesn't have a friend who makea obscure jokes that goes over your head. either way give it a listen...it was well worth it for me !

So rich in characters!

I will admit it started a little slow for the first 45min. But this is now one of my top 5 books. I have not seen some of the Referenced TV shows but I still was able tp follow along. This author made every character come alive. I have listened to and read alot of books. He did a great job.
