By Ward Kelley
Underworld Conspiracy Plot
Join Warren and Zoe as they visit the underworld in this conspiracy fantasy. Reviews say: Ward Kelley’s Divine Murder is an odyssey on a par with Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.
Ward Kelley’s first novel is a deliriously inventive theological thriller. It’s sassy, intelligent, charming and phantasmagorical. – Tony Grist, New Hope International
Divine Murder is a fascinating look into humanity’s relationship with God and its own destiny. – Elizabeth Burton, The Blue Iris Journal
Ward Kelley’s Divine Murder is an odyssey on a par with Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. His style of examining circumstance and perpetuity and the graves we dig in terms of soul is a cross between C.S. Lewis and Dante, an engaging mix of speculation and inner truth. Kelley’s poetic pen has an eroticism reminiscent of Nabokov, where scenery is more than scenery. It is a playground for temptation and a test of moral cues.

Kelley opens the novel near the sea, travels through a veritable galaxy of emotion, and the reader falls in love with the complexity of both his protagonists and his villains. In Divine Murder, you will meet both the devil and the god, the beams of light and the complex shades of darkness, but they are at times indistinguishable, and rightly so. It’s the reader’s job to intuit and draw the line, which adds nothing but fascination to the experience of reading this book. Science fiction has never seen such a startling command of both the earthly and the imaginative.
– Janet I. Buck, author of Calamity’s Quilt
A preternatural foray into the very depths of human nature and the soul, Divine Murder elicits disbelief suspended by the vivid resonance experienced by the reader. You’ll meet up with demonic devils and perfect angels. Ardent infidelity and steadfast loyalty will bring philosophical epiphanies, and there’s ample underlying treachery with an appropriate dose of graphic violence. After all, the task at hand is the murder of God, a deed so diabolical it floods the mind with metaphysical questions.
