The Revelation of Gabriel Adam
Seventeen-year-old Gabriel Adam is used to relocating a lot. When a mysterious assassin burns his home to the ground, Gabriel's father reveals the truth of why they are always on the move: Gabriel is one of four archangels, born human and sent to stop Armageddon. Now Gabe must set aside dreams of attending NYU to try to fulfill his newly discovered role. Racing against time, Gabe and his father travel to the English university town of Durham, hoping the last surviving member of an ancient religious sect can guide them. With the assassin in pursuit, Gabe must shoulder the weight of his new life and an impossible destiny as protector of the entire human race.

"... the Christian lore, shifting realities and demonic gore are entertaining. There's clearly more to come, and it will be interesting to see how these angels get their wings." --Kirkus Reviews "Duncan's novel feels modeled after works by adult thriller authors, such as Steve Berry, using short chapters and various locales (New York, England, Ethiopia), and he also alternates the narrative between two voices: Gabe and his evil enemy, Septis. There's also plenty of quasi-religious history that mixes all manner of things, such as the Essenes with the sword Excaliber. Naturally, this well-paced page turner is the first book in a trilogy, so look for more of the heavenly host." --Ilene Cooper, Booklist "Readers with a passing knowledge of biblical lore will enjoy the Apocrypha of the novel and the tension as Gabe and Micah race to battle an ancient enemy." -- Cheryl Clark, VOYA magazine
