Almost Damned by Christopher Leibig

Blurb (as on Amazon):

“An unconventional, absorbing legal thriller with elements of fantasy and the supernatural.” -Kirkus Reviews

Defense attorney Samson Young has an uncanny ability to get even the so-called worst clients off the hook, as he ably demonstrated in Almost Mortal. In Almost Damned, little does Sam know that his most challenging cases are all leading up to one monumental trial, in which he will lay before the Court the visceral complexities of good vs. evil.

As Sam navigates his cases in Bennet County, it becomes increasingly apparent that his clients-old and new-are surprisingly interconnected, especially when old clients rise from the dead. Literally. He and his office are besieged by death threats and mysterious invitations, each one a clue that compels him to dig deeper into his own past. With each new discovery, Sam leads himself and his team deeper into a nether world in an attempt to bring redemption to his toughest clients of all-the descendants of the biblical Fallen Angels who have been walking the earth as humans for centuries, unable to find peace.

Samson Young is a criminal attorney who fights for the rights of fallen angels and demons. The plot in this book revolves around Samson’s fight for justice for a group of exiled angels. What kind of challenges does he face and is he successful in winning this fight?

What I liked about the book:
-> Though I haven’t read the 1st book in the series I could understand what was going on. The book holds quite well as a standalone despite being part of a series.
-> The courtroom scenes are profound and seem authentic.
-> The plot is quite unique and intriguing. Not to mention it throws some unexpected twists just when you get comfortable and think the plot is getting predictable.
-> The book is a complete package of thriller, mystery, paranormality, fantasy, and courtroom (and even outside the court) drama.

What I did not like about the book:
-> There were many characters and sometimes it becomes hard to keep up and recall each of them.
-> The reading of this can be exerting because it requires deep alertness and a fair bit of knowledge around religious scriptures as there were many references from the Bible, the Torah, and the Book of Enoch.
