Tim Marquitz writes his novels while keeping in mind the most important things…Sex, drugs, humor, and major ass kicking. Frank “Trigg” is definitely a hero with many vices which is suiting seeing as he is the nephew of Lucifer himself, and a former number one pick to be the “Anti-Christ”. Man, I love biblical horror/ urban fantasy… Throw God, Angels, and Demons into any story line, and watch me be sucked right in. The Demon Squad series plays along many of the lines that Kadrey’s Sandman

I may have mentioned I'm a huge fan of Tim Marquitz. Ever since I read his amazingly hilarious Armageddon Bound, it's been my goal to get more people to read his work by any means possible. Yup, nothing is too far when it comes to Frank Trigg.

When Tim sent me a copy of the sequel to one of my favorite books of 2009, I was overjoyed. You may then ask yourself why it took me this long to finally read it. I can promise that it's not for lack of quality, only for lack of time.

Resurrection is the second book in the Demon Squad series, sequel to Armageddon Bound which happened to be the author's debut novel.

Armageddon Bound introduced us to Frank Triggaltheron, nephew of Lucifer, living in a world at the edge of the Apocalypse. You see, God and Lucifer have made peace with each other and proceeded to abandon all creation together, and no one knows where they are. With their disappearance; power voids have come to the surface, dem

I really enjoyed the first book in this series but found the writing/fighting a little repetitive and some of the information a bit "raw"; however Mr Marquitz has certainly polished his skill and this second part of the series is brilliant!
The same characters have become more rounded, with hints as to how they became who they are, I find this very clever writing, as it makes me want more, yes Im hooked.
New characters and creatures are fantastically explained, the details are gut wrenchingly disg

I really enjoyed this one possibly more than the first one with the pesky having to get to know the characters out the way. I really like the way the mythology in these books is progressing and without spoilers you'll have to read them to get exactly what I mean, however I do like it when a book or TV series really starts to develop its on take on mythology and makes it, it's own and I think this really starts in this book and is what makes it such a great read.

Frank Triggaltheron is back-- Lucifer's nephew, willing partaker in debauchery, conflicted demon. He remains a curiosity-- a demon with affinity to, and empathy for, human beings. Part of the attraction is that Frank is not an 'anointed one'. He is largely unremarkable, without any special, dormant power, and must rely on his own wits and resourcefulness. He is scrappy and you can't help but root for him even as you shake your head in disbelief at many of his actions and thoughts.

He fights, albe

Armageddon Bound was a fun little novel, giving us a new urban fantasy series with a Judeo-Christian mythology theme. God and the Devil have made peace, leaving the universe to humanity and their former servitors high and dry. The chosen candidate for the Anti-Christ, Frank "Triggaltheron" Trigg, is happy about this change and has devoted himself to the human monster-hunting organization DRAC in protect the world from the unnecessary Armageddon.

The premise is Frank, after a disastrous attempt
I won this novel in a giveaway hosted by

This book did not begin in a good way: I knew Frank was always horny from the first book in the series, but in this one he seemed the main character of City Hunter. A lot of people love him, but I am not a fan. I was a bit annoyed.
But when the story started to pick up I forgot about it and enjoyed the adventure.

Starting a second in a series is always a bit of a crap shoot, first book pulls you in and you have high expectations for the second and ...well in this case I still had an amazing amout of fun reading this novel as well as the first!
The world Tim has made is very action packed with a sharp wit and great battles, the characters grow as well as the overall situation or people are in, the addition of a few new ..err "faces" are great : for example : we have a zombie head' yes just the head who si

Tim Marquitz’s debut novel, Armageddon Bound, introduced the world to Frank Trigg—the ex-Antichrist, Satan’s Nephew, and all-round snarkophile. I read the book with almost no expectations and was rewarded with a darkly humorous and action-packed story, which ended up being one of my favorite debuts in 2009. So when I got the chance to read the sequel, I was very excited. Of course, this time around, my expectations were much higher as I wanted to see more of the world created by Tim Marquitz and ...more

I must admit, I did not love this one as much as the first one. Armageddon Bound (AB) was a surprise sucker punch to the jaw, and my expectations in the second were probably a little too high. Despite this seemingly negative statement, Resurrection delivered an evolved style of writing, better characterization, and introduced my new favorite horror character, Chatterbox -- the Iron Maiden singing severed head.

Tim's dark and very funny sense of humor is here. Tim's gruesome visuals are here too.

Some guys get all the hell. Frank 'Triggaltheron' Trigg, having barely averted armageddon two months before in the previous Demon Squad book, is back in the soup when he's beset by several near-simultaneous crises--a zombie-resurrecting necromancer, a called-in favor that means killing a being that already killed a powerful demon's top enforcers, and the rumored resurrection of the Antichrist. He's got to deal with hidden agendas, long odds, dire consequences, apocalyptic endgames, and worst of ...more

This was a very quick read for me and was LMAO all the time.

I have mentioned it before and will mention it again, I have found very few authors with the ability to genuinely mix in humor in a tense or action packed sequence and Tim does this quite naturally.

Unlike your standard books where the "hero" is the paragon of virtue and cannot possibly go wrong, I hardly remember any part of this series so far where Frank "gets it right". Even though, the action sequences are good and the pacing is just
Marquitz is a hilarious author, and no matter how serious, gritty or intense the action got, he managed to keep me laughing. Resurrection itself has a rather surreal quality that is truly enjoyable. It’s part braincandy and part over-the-top noir that somehow works perfectly. Marquitz only seems to improve with each book released. Equal parts badass and hilariously irreverent, Marquitz always manages to scratch my literary itch.
Seriously, if you haven’t read this series yet, what are you waitin

I am a big fan of this series, and each book keeps getting better and better. Full of snark, wit, action and characters you can really get behind, especially as the bullets fly, you can't go wrong with this series! This book has it all. Zombies, Necromancers, Demons, Angels, 2 different Anti-christs and the first woman in creation! What more can you ask for? A huge conspiracy is at play, all to bring about the resurrection in the title. I wont ruin it, but you wont see the twist coming until the ...more

In February 2010, I reviewed Tim Marquitz's Armageddon Bound, the first installment in his Demon Squad urban fantasy series. I found it to be a good example of an off-the-beaten-path gem the small presses like Damnation Books can provide that the large publishers simply don't have the want or stomach to make available for readers. It was pulpy, prurient, and a little perverse. Resurrection is no different.

Some people say the first book you ever write is the hardest, some say that the sequel is much harder. There are a lot of reasons for why people say the sequel is harder, from realisation that you have to start things all over again, to the unrealistic expectations you place upon yourself to better the reception you got for your first book. For me it seems like Tim Marquitz must have found the first book the hardest because my reading of Resurrection, the sequel to Armageddon Bound, was so fluid ...more
...Marquitz once again delivers a fast paced novel, full of action and Trigg's self-depreciating humour. He has managed to raise the bar quite a bit, resulting in a stronger second novel, that builds on an interesting premiss. There is still quite a lot to uncover in this setting. Most of the struggle between Angels and Demons seems to be limited to one city for instance. As of yet, there is no clue why this would be the case. Fortunately Marquitz clearly intends to write a third book and judgin ...more

The first line actually made me roll my eyes. While the story might make a good late night action flick, it didn't make the type of book that I like to read. The writing was decent, but I didn't like the storyline or characters.
