In The God Killers, the first book of The God Killers Legacy, former professional art thief Ivory Blaque is hired to procure a pair of antique pistols and gets much more than she bargained for when several attempts are made on her life. 

Her client turns out to be a shadowy government agent who reveals that she is descended from a race of immortals, and that the pistols are linked to her unique heritage and the special psychic gifts she possesses. He uses the memory of her father to guilt her into working for him. 

Ivory eventually gives in to his request, and in return, he presents her with her father's journal, which was written in an unbreakable code. Bishop believes that she is the only one capable of breaking the code and unlocking the plans of the vampire hierarchy. But when the city's top vampire is a sexy incubus with an attraction for her and she's assigned a hot new lycan enforcer to protect her, she finds herself caught between two sets of rock hard abs. 

To regain her autonomy, clear her name, unlock the secrets of her past, and protect the lives of those closest to her, Ivory must play along with the forces trying to manipulate her. Ivory's life is rapidly spiraling out of control and headed for an explosive conclusion which she just might not survive.

Here's what

Fans are saying

I was instantly drawn to this book. I love books with strong female main characters. And this one came through. It was very action packed and fast moving and for sure left you begging for book two.

It had Vampires, Lycan, incubus oh my!!

Ivory is smart, clever and willing to do what it takes to get to the bottom of things. Allen writes well rounded characters with rich detail and solid histories. Which I found amazing. These were characters you really got to know along the way.

As usual the Seventh Star art does not fail to please either. Enggar Adirasa was the artist on this one and it is stellar. I love that Seventh Star releases have interior art.

As a fan of both Raymond Chandler and Jim Butcher, I very much enjoyed The God Killers. Set in Chicago, the novel follows the sexy adventures of Ivory Blaque, a former art thief turned respectable.

Ivory runs her own gallery and takes on jobs to locate stolen art, and she's the best one for the job, given her background in the underground.

She recovers the legendary Colt pistols known as the God Killers, and she is changed forever. She gains powers and an insight into the preternatural forces in her background - and the attention of powerful vampires and other secret organizations.

In her quest to learn more about the weapons, her origins, and to clear her name, she earns enemies and learns who her friends truly are.

In Ivory, John F. Allen creates an engaging hero you can't help but root for. The world he paints as a backdrop is rich, detailed, well thought out, and is filled with mysterious and intriguing characters, especially his villains: You will love to hate Bishop and Antoine in particular, I guarantee it.
