    Fascinating!! This was definitely very well thought out. How one links all these lores and stories together is beyond impressive. I can just imagine the amount of research this requires! Anyway, I gave this only four stars because it wasn’t a smooth read. It’s a lot of things to digest and remember so it took some effort to read the book. But the story was well crafted.

    I love the world Adrienne Wilder created here - demons, palets (demon hunters for the uninitiated), nephilim, an unsteady truce between heaven and hell...it's fantastic. Indigo is a Palet. He has the ability to see demons and the training to hunt - and kill - them. He is one of the last in a dying breed. Things are done differently these days, a covenant set up between heaven and hell - or at least, the church and demons - means that it is no okay to just go and kill demons any more, even if they I love the world Adrienne Wilder created here - demons, palets (demon hunters for the uninitiated), nephilim, an unsteady truce between heaven and hell...it's fantastic. Indigo is a Palet. He has the ability to see demons and the training to hunt - and kill - them. He is one of the last in a dying breed. Things are done differently these days, a covenant set up between heaven and hell - or at least, the church and demons - means that it is no okay to just go and kill demons any more, even if they are using humans in nefarious ways. In writing it all seems to be on the legitimate side, humans are the only creatures gifted with free will, the right to make choices, if the choice they make is to mix with demons...well it's their bed and they must lay on it. Except demons are sneaky bastards not at all averse to tricking human, trouble is, tricked or not, if the human made the choice with free will there can be no intervention. Basically it's the church trying to find the easy way out of a bloody horrible problem. Of course things are never that simple. Indigo gets dragged into a fight that seems impossible to win, even with the back up of his true love, fallen guardian angel, Ariel. I loved the intricacies of this story. The whys and who's. The struggle for power that is being fought by the demons and church alike, and the struggle for love that is the centre of both Indigo and Ariel. True, it's a love Indigo is ignoring and denying for a good part of the story, but really it's the back-bone of his actions and reactions. He believes in good and he believes in love. He believes in humans and doing the right thing, even when the price is high. A complex world and a story full of twist and turns. It definitely falls into the spectrum of three dimensional characters. Are the 'good' guys always good? Are the 'bad' guys always bad? Whose right is it to decide good and bad and right and wrong? The human soul, that =which gives us free will, so coveted by those who don't have one. If it is free will though, do other humans have the right to decide for us what we can and can't do? It's complicated, beautifully written, engaging and I really, really want to read more in this series. Adrienne Wilder is an author I've had the pleasure of reading a few times in the last year - and I'm getting more and more drawn into her writing style and the wonderful worlds she creates. A recommended read from me! A copy of this book was given in exchange for an honest review. Reviewed previously at BMBR

The novel tackles Heaven, Hell, angels, demons, and the nature of free will. The end result is a well-written and occasionally chaotic narrative. Upon starting The God Code, I felt as though I was dropped into the middle of a novel already in progress. The author clearly expected me to hit the ground running, and though everything is eventually explained, it took some work to keep up with the plot while trying to untangle the complexities of this new world. Doing so was worth the effort though and the storyline moved quickly, never lagging as it built to a menacing finale. The characters are engaging and I found myself drawn to each of them for different reasons. The relationship between Ariel and Indigo is beautiful, and the tangled mess of guilt, desperation, and absolute love they share feels authentic. Indigo is an angry, driven man who feels betrayed by God and Wilder has done a good job fully realizing the inner conflict Indigo is forever battling. Ariel is the epitome of grace and his devotion to Indigo, in spite of all that he has endured, quickly made him my favorite character of the book. Read Sue’s review in its entirety here.

    The angst-o-meter was set to extra high for this one. A very tortured and angst-ridden Angel romance with a to-be-continued ending (not quite at cliffhanger level, but enough to be sad that the next book not out yet). Generally stories involving Angels, Demons and Religion are not my thing, but Ms. Adrienne Wilder is most definitely my thing! She really can write anything and make the story so incredibly unique.

    I really had a difficult time rating this one. I 'want' to give it 4 stars as I am a huge fan of Adrienne Wilder, but this one just didn't grab me like many of her other works have. Plus, I noticed a lot of unexpected editing errors (mostly lack of commas, rampantly so). I'll still continue on with the series as it gets released, but I'm going to say it was really only worthy of a 3 star rating from me this time. :( I really had a difficult time rating this one.

In the world where this story is set, Chaos and Serenity have been battling it out for dominance for millennia, and now the Church has intervened and brokered a deal, the Covenant, between the warring factions…the trouble is, only one side is sticking to the deal. The Palet, humans who are able to sense the Demonic and are used to being able to hunt and kill them, are now more or less redundant but haven’t stopped keeping watch over things. Members of the Church are dying including one that Indigo Black, a Palet with vast experience was very close to named Dante, and good man that he was, Dante has left some hidden clues as to what is going on and why. Indigo and his lover Guardian Angel Ariel sense something new ‘in the force’ one day…a Nephilim named Nekoda, supposedly the result of an Angel and human mating, but as Indigo rescues Nekoda against impossible odds from a demon power gathering where he’s being raped in order to bring forth the superpower demon that’s waiting to make its entrance on Earth, he realises that Nekoda is something else entirely which explains why the Demons want him. This is where I’ll leave my review and my picture of Ariel, the Guardian Angel..... I have to say I love this author’s work, both this the first in the God Code series and the book Seven have got 5 stars from me, and I can’t wait to see what happens next in both series. Yes, there are little niggles that need ironing out, but both stories are gripping, tense and action packed with dollops of sex thrown in….a mug of coffee and these books, great escapism.

    I never thought I'd say that a fantasy/erotic read would have too much sex, but this one does. The sex scenes were all quite similar and really just ended up making me feel like putting the book down. I almost, almost started to skim the sex scenes. Indigo Black (yeah I also wasn't a fan of his name) is a broken and angry man. Shackled by the church, he writhes about in the human realm and pretty much pisses everyone around him off. Happily, he's not the stock standard 25yrs old. He's in his 40s, I never thought I'd say that a fantasy/erotic read would have too much sex, but this one does.

Happily, he's not the stock standard 25yrs old. He's in his 40s, which was a pleasant change for most fantasy reads. The Nephilim that is alluded to in the synopsis was an interesting character. I enjoyed reading about the preparation that the Demonic took part in to ensure a successful possession. That aspect of the demonic story was quite interesting and different. The Palet felt a bit like a club, rather than an official organization that is meant to protect humankind. I did enjoy Adrienne's descriptions of the Angelic, they were quite beautiful, in a too beautiful for reality sort of way. Overall, and Adrienne does acknowledge this in his profile on Goodreads, the book was dark. A little too dark, and all doom and gloom for me to enjoy. The book needs another serious edit. There were just too many issues for me to capture as I was reading, but the ones I did notice are below: 7% - ...and seeing at (delete at) it never got easier. 8% - Humand (Humans) saw what they... 19% - ...they were a leaf (in) the wind, 20-58% some incorrect/weird punctuation.

At times, I was totally picturing this as a movie playing in my head. x) This is very plot-driven, focusing on three well-drawn enough characters, Indigo, Ariel, and Neko. Though I gravitated towards Ariel and Neko mostly, since it's so easy to sympathize and suffer with them, while Indigo was being a stubborn and (albeit rightfully) bitter bastard. There are some familiar aspects in the storyline, in regards to the whole Serenity vs. Chaos (basically Heaven vs. Hell), corrupted Church and the Covenant, warriors/Palets who have lost their purpose, and a rising sense of war (which doesn't happen in this book yet). But Wilder keeps it fresh enough with some new and interesting concepts, like the "artifact", what the hell Neko exactly is, and the Seraph. There also is enough emotional angst for your heart's content in the epic, tortured romance between human Indigo and Ariel, his fallen angel and Guardian. I wouldn't mind seeing a prequel detailing the start of their 25 year relationship, when Ariel was first assigned to a much younger and still idealistic Indigo. Present Indigo is wracked with intense guilt over his part in Ariel's now mangled wings so he spends much of the book in constant emotional turmoil while pushing Ariel away again and again. His guilt is understandable but he treats Ariel rather horribly and I wanted to strangle him with my bare hands more than once. His constant angst-ing did start to get to be a bit too much. But their angsty romance hit the guilty pleasure spot for me and the love scenes were hot and emotional enough, so romantic me was satisfied on that front. Although, (Don't look if you're seriously thinking of reading this!) (view spoiler)[ I kind of wanted Ariel to stay dead. I mean, at first I was all Noooooo this can't be. But then after Indigo's...transformation happened I had time to accept his death and how Indigo willingly condemned himself to an eternity of loneliness...Only for Ariel to come back in the last 5%. :S (hide spoiler)] Then again, if it wasn't an (view spoiler)[ HEA, (hide spoiler)] I probably would be complaining too. This book can stand on its own, there are enough hints for you to figure out how this Second War will play out. Ch. 36 is a good ending for Indigo and Ariel's story. Except for that last damn chapter. (view spoiler)[The revival of Jake! As a BLACK-winged angel to boot! (hide spoiler)] Having flashbacks to that dude from DN: Angel now. You just can't dangle that in front of me and leave me all anticipating. I am sensing so much angst for poor Neko and I want to see that! :( I can't find any news of a sequel...? So solid 4 stars for now, I'll be sorely pissed and disappointed if she just added in that last chapter and is not planning to follow through..

    The God Code has an interesting take on the world of angels and demons. Indigo is a human that has the ability to see demons and fight against them. Ariel is his guardian angel and the two have worked together for years in the war between good and evil. Neko is a young man who is a nephilim with a soul and both the angels and the demons want to make him their own. He is unaware of his what he is as both sides fight to take control of him and Indigo tries to protect him.

I really enjoyed the three main characters. They were all very different from each other but all were engaging. There are two love stories going on at the same time. Neko and Jake and Indigo and Ariel. Both sets are complicated and filled with problems. Both were sweet in their own way. Indigo and Ariel were also had some pretty steamy scenes. The plot moves at a fast pace and had a lot of action in it. It read like an urban fantasy which is a genre I like a lot. My only issue with the story was that the world building did not make a lot of sense to me in places. I found parts of it overly complicated or just not logical for me. That being said I think the good parts out weighed the parts that bothered me and I liked it enough that I will read the next book in the series when it comes out.

    What the author surely manages to do with this short novel, the first instalment in a yet to be published series, is to rely heavily on Judeo-Christian imagery without any religious overtone. This is not necessarily a good thing in itself but it is certainly a feat and it spares the reader unwanted and unnecessary musings about the essence of faith, religion and belief.

The plot is well thought of; characters are likeable and fairly well rounded, but their inner turmoils sometimes feel in the way instead of adding to their depth; villains are good enough but not unforgettable; action scenes are good but few; sex scenes are many, explicit but lacking in imagination (curiously enough the scenes preceding or following the "deed" are emotionally intense). The end result is a fairly entertaining but by no means memorable read.

    2.5 I enjoyed the setting and liked the start. The world Wilder creates is a dark one and reminded me a bit of the original Blade Runner. Of course there are no replicants but demons and no one knows about them but the church. I could easily imagine the same gloomy blue light, the dark buildings and a society corrupted by ignorance and greed. There is also a Harrison Ford kind of guy: Indigo Black, a detached, bitter warrior against the demonic who is more or less out of work since the church and 2.5 I enjoyed the setting and liked the start.

There are other intriguing characters and roles and even some of the rules the demons, angels and the clerics are operating on are quite promising. So everything was set up to enjoy a good story and I could have enjoyed it or at least liked it more than I did at the end if the author made me feel but mostly she only told me what the characters are feeling and quite often I found myself accepting those statements for the sake of the story. The only connection I could feel was the one Neko had with Jake though the one of Indigo and Ariel ... and it certainly didn't help that those 2 had to have sex everytime they meet or maybe I should phrase it that way: Ariel let Indigo use him everytime they meet (while later it wasn't so clear anymore who's using who). Wilder tried to explain the reason for their behavior but explanations only make me rationalize those actions and on a rational level I couldn't understand them or came up with different reasoning. So the romance that was supposed to be at the core of that story failed. Might still have been a stable 3 star read for me because I still enjoyed the world setup but in the end that setup promised more than the story delivered, so I closed the book disappointed.

This is my first MM Romance Angel/Demon story and it was everything I could have hoped for. I loved the world building. The descriptions of the different characters, AMAZING! The horror element *Shivers* --perfect. The character development was good, well rounded, and they were likable. This is a little darker than your standard Angel/Demon story, and as I am not Catholic, I am unable to attest to the accuracy of the mythology used. The imagery that was conjured up in my mind was stunning. I was excited to read these new descriptions of the Angel Hierarchy. Indigo - I'm not sure what to say about Indigo. I love him, but wanted to punch him in equal measure because he was WASTING TIME with his Guardian. This Angel Fell for you, and you tell him to fuck off? No, just no! But the angst tied in well with the plot, so I will go along with it... for now. Ariel is Beautiful, beyond Angelic, and patient. Sexy too ;) I love me a sexy Angel. While we didn't get to know him as well as I would have liked, he held his own in the story when required. The Nephilim - poor kid (sorry, not a kid, just looks like one). I was a little disappointed in his character, simply because I expected that he would become a little stronger over time, but he didn't really. I understood the hurt portion, but not the wallowing. It didn't help the plot along. He was still lovely, but I want him to be more. There are lots of erotic scenes in this story, and they were smokin' hot. I won't say more, because I don't want to start adding spoilers. There are some supernatural elements but it is not heavily bogged down with descriptions of powers, limitations etc. This Author is new to me, and I am hooked. This story hit the spot and I want there to be a whole extended series of it. I'm thankful there will be at least one more, but I hope he writes lots and lots! The story could use some additional editing. One or two Betas would probably pick up the missed grammar errors. I wanted to get out my red pen, but got side tracked with the amazing descriptions. Some readers aren't able to ignore those sorts of mistakes as easily. This is why I haven't given 5 stars. Recommended for those who like their stories a little on the darker side. Get excited over Angels, Demons, and all the stuff in between. There is difficult subject matter, and some hurt/comfort elements. Trigger warning in tags.

    I really was unsure of this book. It looked a bit complex and at times it is. The writing was excellent. The descriptions used were detailed without being overwhelming. I thought the world building was very interesting considering the immense complexity of the world being created. The characters were each unique. They grab your attention and hold it. They aren’t pure characters. They show their individual good and bad sides. In overall I would say the overall feel to the story is more on the dar I really was unsure of this book.

I enjoyed the whole of the story but was a bit disappointed with the end. I’ve become too complacent with simple HEA endings. This isn’t necessarily one of those. I won’t say it is an unhappy ending but it wasn’t all smiles and rainbows either. I am thrilled there will be more books for this world. There is no doubt I want to see what will happen to these men.

    This was pretty good. Although, I did start skimming through the sex scenes... I just wanted to get on with the story and find out how things turned out. I think the story could stand on its own without so much sex in it. I wonder if there's a rule for certain publishers that say you need so much of your story to be erotic? It would be interesting to find out. This was pretty good. Although, I did start skimming through the sex scenes... I just wanted to get on with the story and find out how things turned out.

    I am a dork. There, I said it. I tell friends regularly that I don’t read books that contain a religious theme and that’s not actually true.

THIS is what I don’t like and why I tend not to opt in on reviews for religious-themed books – because once I agree to review a book, I try my hardest to finish it and I prefer the option to discontinue a book if it gets to preachy. Don’t get me wrong because I am not anti-religion. What I am is someone who prefers not to be preached at when reading fiction. All that said, when The God Code: Nephilim Prophecy came up for review, I had no choice but to take it because Ms. Wilder has done right by me in every book of hers I have read. And I am tickled pink to report that she has continued to deliver with this book. Unlike her other books that I’ve read, Nephilim Prophecy has two love stories – Jake and Neko’s and Ariel and Indigo’s. Jake and Neko work for Eami – Jake is one of Eami’s whores and Neko is the virgin who dances but is off limits to all. While Jake and Neko cannot indulge in physical intimacy beyond kissing, this does not prevent them from falling in love with one another. When Eami tells Neko he can have whatever or whomever he wants on his 21st birthday, Neko chooses Jake and sets into motion the fulfilling of a prophecy that may bring an end to humanity. Ariel and Indigo are servants of God – or they would be had Ariel not been cast out for saving Indigo’s life during an act of free will. The angel (fallen) and the warrior (disillusioned). Both love stories are heartbreaking to witness as the young (Jake and Neko) and the old (Ariel and Indigo) learn that love does not conquer all and that evil will use it against them. I found the main characters fascinating. Despite questioning God’s existence and his lack of faith and trust in the church, Indigo remains true to his calling as a Palet and continues to fight and destroy demons – even if he goes against the church’s edict to do so from time to time. Why? Because he believes in his calling to protect the innocent. It is because of this that he breaks more rules than normal when he rescues Neko from Eami’s club, subsequently stumbling upon a demonic plot that will violate all of the Covenants between Serenity and Chaos. His quest to save Neko and thwart the plot brings Ariel back into his life and their history is as beautiful as it is heartbreaking – but the sex is otherworldly. As this is a fight between good and evil, there are deaths on both sides – some you’ll be happy to see happen and others you won’t. The God Code: Nephilim Prophecy is an action-packed read that had me constantly wondering what could happen next and I loved every page of it. It is the first book in the series and the battle is just beginning, so while the author provides us a bit of foreshadowing of what is to come, I don’t consider the ending to be a cliffhanger per se. I do hope that Ms. Wilder is able to release the next book in the series later this year as planned because she has hooked me on this series. I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. Reviewed by Angela at Crystal's Many Reviewers!

    This is one of those books that while I enjoyed so much of it the words to explain why seem so far out of reach. The first thing that I must point out is that there really isn’t a perfect genre box to stick Nephilim Prophecy into. Wilder has combined fantasy, paranormal, and touch of romance in this fascinating read. There was a point in Indigo Black’s life when he knew exactly who he was working for and what he was protecting.

The first thing that I must point out is that there really isn’t a perfect genre box to stick Nephilim Prophecy into. Wilder has combined fantasy, paranormal, and touch of romance in this fascinating read. There was a point in Indigo Black’s life when he knew exactly who he was working for and what he was protecting. Since he came into the Church as one of the Palets many things have changed and his beliefs have followed in these changes. The things he is supposed to be protecting innocents from seem to have more power than he does. He is frustrated by the fact that the Covenant that has been put in place ties his hands more than protects the innocent from the Demonic and their evil ways. He has also seen the destruction that punishments can hand down when the lines that are crossed are blurred. Indigo is still suffering the guilt of his Guardian, his Angel, his lover, his Fallen, his Ariel’s punishment for a deed Indigo committed. So many things are black and white for Indigo. He sees good and evil. He sees things as right and wrong. The death of a friend makes him start questioning things more than ever before. Things are not as they appear and with the creation of something that shouldn’t exist, someone that needs protecting, Indigo soon finds himself thrown in the middle of the beginnings of the biggest war Chaos and Serenity will ever face. The future that has been foretold states who will not be the victor of this battle. All of the elements for epically awesome read are here. Good vs evil and the wild card that will change everything ever known. I’m beyond eager to get my hands on the next God Code book. There are so many different directions this series can go and I have no clue which direction it is headed at this point.

    The God Code is an exciting, dystopian story based on Christian mythology. Much of the story is rather bleak (although there are some quite bright moments) and characters are various shades of grey. I think this quote from Indigo describes it well: "There are no good guys, Neko. Just mortals and immortals. Chaos and Serenity." All of the characters are interesting and well drawn. My favs are Ariel and Luci. There are several great smexy scenes. There is also a lot of violence, which is necessary The God Code is an exciting, dystopian story based on Christian mythology.

I enjoyed Adrienne Wilder's writing and how she revealed details of the "hidden" world throughout the story. I did find that there were more typos (such as missing or extra words) than I have seen in her other books that I have read. However, it was still a terrific read. I look forward to the next installment in the series, which the epilogue sets up nicely. At the time of writing this review, this book was available for loan from Amazon Prime and Unlimited programs.

    I think the plot has already been satisfactorily summarized. After reading a second 5-star book (SEVEN) from Adrienne Wilder, I had to go back and write a short review about this talented author's work. What follows is a short snippet from a private message I sent to the author: "I stayed up until nearly 2am finishing the Nephilim Prophesy on Halloween night. Holy wow! Well crafted and well edited. Beautiful, heart wrenching, exciting, heartwarming, unique. As a recovering catholic..., I nearly p I think the plot has already been satisfactorily summarized.

Beautiful, heart wrenching, exciting, heartwarming, unique. As a recovering catholic..., I nearly put it down a few times as I am not fond of 'anything with a religious bent'. But Indigo, Ariel, Neko, and Lucy kept me reading and on the edge of my seat (or rather bed)." It was a completely satisfying romp; I felt like I'd been chased along with our heroes. It is not a Judeo/Christian tale, but a supremely intelligent paranormal romance. Yes, it has a happy ending. Highly recommended.

    This book. I don't really even know where to start. Wow. I mean, holy shit. My mind? It's blown. If Goodreads gave the option of an infinitum amount of stars, holy hell, this would get them all. Everything that I've ever loved in a book, and I mean every single thing, be it in the M/M genre or not, was in this story. Angst? Check. Angels and immortals? Check. A beautiful love story that doesn't happen overnight? Check. Characters I could, and did, get emotionally attached to? Check. I loved this This book. I don't really even know where to start. Wow.

I fell in love with Indigo and Ariel, and am anxiously awaiting Neko and Jake's story!

    This booked pulled me in almost immediately and never let go! I love the way the author explained this reality without ever force-feeding the reader a huge chunk of backstory. It all progressed very naturally. The angst was definitely high here, between all the main characters. I expected to have trouble connecting to Indigo after first meeting him, but it was so easy to empathize with him and understand why he did what he did. And poor Neko just couldn't catch a break!

    Different This one started slow because of the information dump. You have to get through all the different characters to finally get to the story. Since this is a series then it will make the rest easier. I love the characters in this story. Neko is innocent but listens to what he is told. Ariel is the man, a fallen angel who will do anything for Indigo. As the story progresses I couldn't read fast enough. It was a good read and I look forward to the rest.
