Between Heaven and Hell by Brandon M. Davis is a thrilling science fiction story. The story begins when Daniel struggles to fall asleep because of the grisly nightmares that kept him up at night. In these dreams, he finds himself in hell, tortured, and taunted. At ten years old, Daniel was involved in a car accident in which he believes he died and went to hell. When he shares his convictions with his parents, they do not believe him. Fortunately, his psychiatrist believed him and referred him to a priest she felt was better equipped to help him.

The priest opened Daniel up to another world. There are three camps in this world; the human’s (Guardians) camp, the angel’s camp, and the demon’s camp. Daniel leads the Guardians in a war against demons and angels. Fighting against these powerful creatures would not be an easy feat for the guardians. However, they fought with all their might and left their hearts on the battlefields.

The book had a generous amount of characters that played vital leadership roles from all three camps. Distinguishing between these characters was difficult at first. Fortunately, the characters had distinct features, making it easy to tell them apart. For instance, Guardians had red blood, the angels had black blood, and the demons had green blood.

The book is suspenseful and filled with captivating scenes. From the introduction of the complex characters to the build-up, the scenes were well executed. From time to time, waves of astonishment swept me off, and the long-awaited climax did not disappoint. My only gripe with this part of the story was that it was a rather drawn-out experience. My sentiments could be because the camp I was supporting was receiving way more blows than I would have liked. The ending was well-paced until Daniel dropped a bomb on his family. This ending left me with more questions than answers.

This book contains substantial amounts of violent scenes and explicit details of injuries sustained by the characters. Although the book is based on biblical characters, it is also suitable for non-religious readers, as it does not delve into any specific religion. I highly recommend the book to readers who enjoy action and drama.

The book contains a significant number of typos and grammatical errors. As I was reading, I came numerous across profane words. However, considering the characters and the storyline, they were not out of place.

Given the errors mentioned above, I am deducting a star and awarding the book a rating of 3 out of 4 stars.

Thanks for your informative review. This sounds like an interesting sci-fi book that employs the concepts of angels and demons. I'm surprised to see that angels have black blood. Normally, this is assigned to demons.

I'm a big fan of science fiction, so I'll be adding this to my shelf. What Daniel is going through is quite horrible and, I hope he comes out safe. Thanks for the review.

I was thinking that the angels had white blood, but the author had his reasons. The war must have been intense. I've always loved that aspect about the sci-fi books. Good job on the review.

I'm a little confused on how the priest would open up this world and how a young boy was fighting angels and demons. It does seem pretty intense for anyone but particularly a young boy. Thanks for your review. I may have to read it to answer my questions.

I also expected demons to have black blood but maybe it is because the angels in this book were angels of death.

It was a harrowing experience for the little boy. As for the priest, let me just say he had traveled the same path.

I was also taken aback by angels with black blood. But, this book is interesting and offers a somewhat different approach to the "norm".
