The God Killers

3.5 of 5 stars 3.50  ·  rating details  ·  142 ratings  ·  19 reviews
Imagine an alternate reality that appears, on the surface, just like our own. However, in this reality, the white light famously reported at the end of our lives is not an escape or deliverance -- it is a trap. A creature calling itself God in a parallel dimension consumes the souls of humans, devouring their energy to sustain itself. This is the reality that Cipher, Han, ...more

OK... Here's the thing. I was asked to review this book, and I agreed, thinking that it was an interesting premise. And it DOES have an interesting premise, one that I was very curious about, but anything interesting about it was buried under the writing.

This book is in desperate need of an editor. I think that with a good editor, this book could be quite good, but as it is, it was just... not. I tried, but I just could not finish this book. I could barely make it the 30% I read. And that was a
I was looking through the list of giveaway books at Goodreads when this one caught my eye. I read the description and thought it might be good. I was wrong. It's not good. It's Fantastic. I've never read a book like it. A very original idea which the author David Simpson handled excellently. Satan, God, Angels, ghosts, fighting, guns. Enough action throughout to keep you glued to the book to the very end. Oh! Did I forget to mention the thermonuclear bomb. This is a book I will gladly pick up oc ...more

A very easy to read book, whilst it didn't leap out at me for the prose I found myself having read half the book in one sitting!
The story is thought provoking and a new (to me anyway) take on the whole religious/paranormal aspects of life and death. Just enough was given of the characters to hold my interest but not so much that it distracted from the story and its action.

Not one I would have normally picked up but thank you for sending me a copy, I really enjoyed it.

I won this as part of the goodreads giveaways. Reading the back of the book, I probably should have known I wouldn't like it. I am a Christian and had a tough time reading all the blasphemy against God. However, I still read the book and tried to be objective in my rating and review, I still didn't like it. Other than the fact that God was the bad guy, I believe that the story could of had some promise as a great book. It did need some major editing help. The story was choppy and didn't flow. Hi ...more
Wow. A super premise poorly executed. I really like David Simpson's writing, but this book felt like it was written in high school. Apparently little editing (whole for hole, etc.). Sneaking onto an aircraft carrier and stealing a thermonuclear device...seriously? There is little to no character development as the characters are constantly fighting ghosts. I see this is being developed into a graphic novel. A graphic novel may be better media than this novel, and I hope Mr. Simpson takes God Kil ...more

"People with limited vocabulary may find this book amazing." Wow, how sad a comment that one reviewer left.

I absolutely loved this book, and I have not said that about a book for a long time. I normally have three to five books on the go at any one time, fiction and non-fiction, and flip between them to save getting bored; I read this book solid at any chance I was given.

I think I initially got this book free from Amazon, after I had seen it on I almost didn't get it due to so

This book was a bit different than i had expected it to be. i don't want to write a spoiler but it has me thinking about many different things you learn about as you grow with religion and god. This is not a religious book it is syfy and very interesting. I recommend it gives a new twist to life and death.
God is actually an evil entity trying to consume as many souls as possible. After a near death experience a couple of friends discover this and set out to "kill God". They pick up a couple other people along the way to help them out, while God sends his evil henchman and goules down to Earth to stop them.

An interesting concept, but falters in execution. Some scenes live up to it's potential. I like the over the top characterizations of the demon tracking the main characters.

Unfortunately none of
This could have been great. The writing is the weak point, but the idea was solid, which is why I'd still suggest this book. The characters are also interesting, but prepare yourself for terrible and predictable dialogue, well depending on how old you are. People with limited vocabulary may find this book amazing.

I absolutely hate giving a bad review. Advice - a proofreader and some editing assistance.

Very interesting concept - God and the angels as beings from an alternate reality who devour the souls of the dead. I really expected this to be a fascinating read. Unfortunately it completely fell apart in it's execution. Loaded with typographical errors and misuse of vocabulary. Inconsistent, sections almost feel like they were written by seperate authors. In some areas the author needs to do research, bu
I liked David Simpson's Post-Human series so when this book happened to be for free, I picked it up on Amazon. While not the worst someone could put out, it certainly was nowhere on the same page as Post-Human. I think there could have been more to the novel's concept and the climax was reached far too quickly for my taste. In total, a quick diversion for a rainy day.
I am going to give this 3.5 stars. This story had a great premise, I just hoped that it would be longer. This could've been so much better if the author gave the time to the story,

Love it.

This book was a very good read. I can't wait to read more from this author. Keep the stories coming.
Well this was certainly a different take on who God really is. I thought it was kind of interesting actually. I won't give away any spoilers, but I will give a synopsis of what the story is about. God is actually an "alien" from a different dimension and he eats the souls of the dead to live. Cipher, Han and Father Hurly know this is the case because they've all died and came back to life so they have seen the real "God" and know what he really is. With the help of "Satan" they try to kill this ...more
Interesting concept. The characters were good. I felt the plot was a bit over the top at times, there was LOTS of swearing (which doesn't bother me, but it might other readers) and the end was a little anticlimactic. Overall a decent read.
Brandon Jones
somewhat good premise of a story. writing was a little cheesy especially towards the end. a lot of book I would probably only give two stars but premise of the story caused me to bump it to three.

It was a neat idea, but Han's character got a little old pretty quickly.

Overall I enjoyed it and would possibly look to other books by the author.
Quick book. Interesting read. Some holes, but enjoyable.
Nice distraction and a novel concept especially for free ! :-)
