I have been a fan of vampires and other supernatural creatures since I picked up one of the Anne Rice books back when I was in high school. I have read a lot of these kinds of stories since then but none as satisfying or written nearly as well as Ms. Rice writes until now. War Eternal: Forsaken Angel by J.F. Cain is written in that deep literary and mystical tradition that I first discovered in those books by Anne Rice. War Eternal is deep and satisfying. J.F. Cain invites you into a world of powerful creatures with problems that match their amazing abilities. Angels, demons, vampires, guardians, and exorcists, all try to push their own agenda forward and sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between the good guys and the bad guys.
I think the plot is what really hooked me as I read War Eternal. It is complex and no one knows the right way to proceed but everyone wants an ending that’s good for them. Abaddon wants to enjoy a life of domestic bliss with his wife and soon to arrive child. Aranes wants that too but she has responsibilities that may be more important in the greater scheme of things. These characters are intriguing not only because of their powers but because of the complicated responsibilities that go with them. J.F. Cain has a way of bringing out the human characteristics in those on the side of good as well as those on the side of evil. In the end, that is what makes War Eternal a great book and great writing.
