Catholic Reads declares Honor at Stake one of the best books of 2018

The headline pretty much says it all.
Declan Finn is proving himself to be the go-to guy for the campy fun adventure book that is just smart enough to completely subvert your expectations in ways that never fail to delight.

One of the strongest features of the novel and one of the most Catholic is how it establishes a sense of reality by a great balance of sincerity and dramatic irony. Finn has a way of making things look one way, and then revealing things to be exactly the opposite. It reminds me of Jesus saying he came to turn the world upside-down, and in a way, Finn seeks to do just that for Brooklyn via the lenses of vampire romance action horror (with light sci-fi and espionage elements). I loved its masterful use of dramatic irony and it’s a great portrayal of a young masculine perspective.

This book was also a nominee for the Dragon Award, a feat in and of itself for Indie & Catholic book
Just wait until they read Hell Spawn.

If you haven't read Honor at Stake yet, now would be a good time.
