At three separate times bombs have gone off in London, Los Angeles, and Sydney. Many people were injured and killed. The world is in turmoil and fear because of these blasts. In each of these cities the reader is introduced to people who either survived the bombings, or were apart of the network of terror. There are also unseen forces at work, those who are messengers and defenders from God, and those who are apart of Satan's brute and evil army.
There is a large cast of characters and from several different areas of the world, also included is a list of those unseen forces at work. A list is given in the front of the book of all characters. 
Angelguard is not an end-time story. Rather, it is a stark reminder of what could happen in our world considering the instability and hostility of several foreign countries at this time.

My Thoughts: 
I was quickly swept-up in the hugeness of the story. The large amount of characters in the beginning filled my mind to the point I thought I was going to become lost, but I held on, and was so glad I did. Once the building block of the story was set, I settled down and very much enjoyed it.
I feel it was a huge task for the author to write a book with such a large mobile story and cast of characters. I feel the author did a great job in harmonizing and connecting the story and characters together. 
Our current political climate with various hostile countries in the world gave reality to Angelguard.
Prayer is a huge element in Angelguard. Displays of individual people praying, intercessory prayer, and corporate prayer, are shown. The characters believed strongly that God heard them, and that their labor in prayer made a difference.
