Is it possible for a (written) novel to read like graphic art? John F. Allen’s The God Killers certainly does. Scenes are set with clear clean descriptions. Characters move fast, with that visible blur of speed pouring out through the words. Guns are drawn and fired. Walls are leapt from. Buildings climbed. And it’s all great fun, as ex-art-thief gone straight, Ivory Blaque, sees her world crumble down, then rises from its ashes. From Chicago to New Orleans and back, Blaque, whose skin color is unexpectedly white, tracks bad guys, art and guns, is chased by bad guys and vampires, ponders the Night Shift, indulges in retail therapy, and leaps from the page as assuredly as from the wreckage of her well-wrought life. Loved, or at least lusted after, by creatures of the day and night, filled with conflicting desires, haunted by Vodun and its Catholic roots, Ivory Blaque learns that her decisions may not be entirely her own, and fate may have more than just two guns called the God Killers in store for her. The novel’s filled with mystery and suspense, fast action, great characters, and great visual artistry. It’s dark, but a wilder and crazier ride than the usual urban fantasy. And it stands alone as a well completed story, leaving the reader eager for book two. Disclosure: I received a free ecopy during the author’s blog tour and I offer my honest review.

Art gallery owner Ivory Blaque is a former art thief turned mercenary recovering stolen art It's her way of making up for her past. She's smart, highly skilled, and equipped for trouble. Then she takes a job with a mysterious client to retrieve a pair of antique Colt 45s, and as soon as she puts her hands on them, she knows she's connected to the pistols, and there's no way she's giving them up. Suddenly, she's fending off angry vampires, werewolves, and other super-powered beings who either want the pistols, want her allegiance, or both.As if this weren't bad enough, her former partner in crime is released from jail, and he's out to ruin her professional reputation as a prelude to extracting revenge. As a read, The God Killers has a lot of moving parts. It's never boring, constantly shifting. The protagonist is confident, strong, and smart, though often too stubborn to know when she's in over her head. I was rooting for her the whole way, cringing when she took her lumps, cheering during her victories. The plot is complicated, but it's applied in layers and the author never tackles too much in one chunk. The most surprising thing when I finished is to look back and realize how much Allen covered in one volume, with more to come, Check this one out. You won't be disappointed.
