Since starting our podcast back in 2011, Ben and I have had a lot of requests to read self-published authors’ books. Sometimes the books are bad. Sometimes the books are good. "Flight of the Angels," however, is outstanding. The story behind the creation of the book is as interesting as the book itself. "Flight of the Angels," a novel written by father and son duo, Allan and Aaron Reini, has been in the works for over ten years. We recently had a chance to sit down with the authors and discuss b ...more

Flight of the Angels is an engrossing, action-packed science fiction novel with a cast of intriguing and believable characters. If I had to sum it up in terms of other sci-fi works, I'd call it Battlestar Gallactica meets Left Behind with a dash of The Terminator thrown in.
Set in a world where Christianity is outlawed and believers have fled to safe havens throughout the far reaches of space, the Reinis give us a tale where dark forces hunt down the faithful, where brave pilots struggle to prote

Good start, but it loses steam towards the end.

It's the far future, and Dex D'Felco is commander of a small wing of starfighters charged with guarding a secret colony of Christians. They prevent drone ships from intruding into their airspace, and coordinate supply runs with a mysterious benefactor named Baker. Meanwhile, a harried yet up-and-coming exec Darik Mason is forced to investigate the disappearance of several mining robots for the corporation he works for, which leads to a quiet conspi

If you enjoyed the Left Behind Series but wanted a little more character development with a lot more futuristic technology, then this is the book for you. Corporate espionage, Hyper space dog fights, moral conflicts between good and evil, all wrapped up in my Kindle. I can't resist. It has caused me to forego my favorite shows so I can spend just a few more moments in the world that is Flight of the Angels. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to escape into another world.

I hope there is a sequel, there is so much left to resolve, but what was there was tightly written and fast paced. Aliens meets Top Gun meets Short Circuit, reading it would be easier than understanding how that combination works.

Very good sci-fi. I'm looking to see how the authors and series develop in the next volume. 4 stars. Watch my full review here: http://thescifichristian.com/2013/10/...

"Flight of the Angels" is Christian sci-fi, an uncrowded genre. The premise is that, with Christianity now illegal, a colony of Christians must remain hidden to stay alive. Some work to secretly help them, others to find and kill them.

The writing is solid, and the authors avoid being preachy, the biggest trap of Christian fiction. The world is fleshed out while leaving plenty to explore in future books.

A good book mixing sci-fi with Christian chapters. The pace kept the plot moving, and I didn't get lost in the plot. The battle at the end kept me reading, giving suspense to what would happen to the main characters. The book left me wanting a sequel.
