Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy

{January 7, 2012}   {Review} Heavens on Fire by Guido Henkel (Jason Dark-Ghost Hunter #4)

From Goodreads: When our world becomes a mere pawn in an epic battle between Heaven and Hell, Jason Dark faces a challenge that threatens to shatter the very fabric of reality. As immortal angels die and harbingers of death and destruction escape the fiery pits of hell itself, the Geisterjäger and his companions receive a desperate call for help! Will they be able to save mankind in the face of an onslaught of demons or will our fate burn as brightly as the streets of London?


This is the first novella within the series that pulls past characters and accessories from previous novellas.  In terms of characters, Heaven on Fire revisits one of the evil demons within Demon’s Night, the first book in the series.  The cross from Ghosts Templar also plays an important role within this novella.  And, while I still stand by previous statements that Henkel’s novellas are standalone productions, I think the reader will find it extremely beneficial to have read both Demon’s Night and Ghosts Templar before reading this novella, especially as it glosses over some facts that readers may need in order to understand Heaven on Fire completely. 

While I enjoyed this novella on the whole, I wasn’t as interested in the storyline as I had been with Henkel’s previous work.  The writing, of course, is just as well done as all Henkel’s other novellas, but I found I wasn’t as drawn into this story as I’d hoped to be.  Three stars. 

I received a copy of this novella fromt he author in exchange for an honest review.
