Avery Cates is a very bad man. Some might call him a criminal. He might even be a killer - for the Right Price. But right now, Avery Cates is scared. He's up against the Monks: cyborgs with human brains, enhanced robotic bodies, and a small arsenal of advanced weaponry. Their mission is to convert anyone and everyone to the Electric Church. But there is just one snag. Conversion means death.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastically Entertaining Great pacing, a ton of fun, and an amazing world put together for imperfect characters to live in. Nobody lives forever, and the ones that do are left regretting it. You'll read the story too fast and pick it up again after a few months to enjoy all over again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty Electrifying In a futuristic, dystopian New York, Avery Cates is a gunner and one of the oldest people he knows (at 27 yrs.) and fighting for his life. Not only is the world rampant with corrupt police forces, but there are The Monks. They are the robotic forces of the new religion, The Electric Church. The Church takes 'recruits' brains and implant them in the robotic body so they can become eternal preachers for the Church. The Monks are what, in my opinion, really make this book. Action, adventure and excitement - I crave these things, and got it with this novel. Oh yea, and the Church's motto? "Salvation Through Eternity"
