This full-length thrill-ride of a fantasy is the first in the Counterpoint Trilogy from Daniel Rafferty.

CounterPoint, by D.J. R

"A novel of epic proportions. "Counterpoint" is an apocalyptic adventure that really took me by surprise. From the cover, it looked like maybe this was some sort of legal thriller, but instead it's a wild ride as angels battle the demons of hell to save mankind. This is a fast-paced read that once the action starts, it rarely lets up. I also enjoyed the quieter moments where the angels exchange some witty dialogue with each other, debating whether or not God will ever return and if He considered "evil" to be part of the experiment. In between the action, this is also a book that makes you think. It makes you think about where we've come as a society. Are we worth being saved, or are we better off being wiped out? D.J.R. may seem like an odd name for an author, and no information is given at the end of the book. I'll definitely be looking out for more books from him/her in the future." -- Amazon reviewer
"Sooner or later, the human experiment will have to be evaluated"

As the world turns on its axis, all but a precious few are aware of the cosmic conflict that has continued since time immemorial between heaven and hell, angels and demons. Angels have been tasked with guarding and administering the Human Experiment since creation began. The Archangel Michael fears the experiment has failed due to the pollution of evil and seeks to salvage what he can. The day of reckoning is fast-approaching, and humanity's blissful ignorance will soon be shattered as these duelling forces come to a head on the battlefield of planet Earth.

High-ranking angel Ariel is made responsible for "securing" the Bassett family, and as the conflict begins to unfold, amidst an unreal, unsettling global tempest that seems never to cease, the family is forced to go on the run.

With the Bassett family and their allies in constant peril, the conflict widens in scope as well as geographic distance, and they find themselves battling angels, demons and ancient creatures on all sides. Led by Mary, beloved Irish matriarch of the family, the Bassett's steady themselves for the onslaught ahead- readying for a battle that will test their fortitude and the survival of the world itself.
