Deadline is reporting that Wesley Snipes has a debut novel coming from Harper Voyager. The supernatural thriller–Talon of God–is co-authored by Ray Norman and will hit shelves in July of 2017.
This is what Deadline was able to learn about Talon of God‘s premise:
The novel’s lead characters are Lauren Jefferson, a young doctor who becomes embroiled in an apocalyptic battle between the forces of heaven and hell, and Talon Hunter, a spirit warrior.
Snipes described the premise to Deadline: “There are spiritual warriors that inhabit this planet who are here to help balance out the evil forces, and they are always looking for the next apprentice. And when they find the next apprentice to train — the next heir apparent — then they can move on to the higher realms.” The reluctant Lauren is chosen.
Snipes says that Lauren is a strong female lead, and that the book will have hip-hop and urban elements alongside the supernatural. He also claimed that the book has tonal similarities to Constantine, The Devil’s Advocate, and of course, Blade.
Talon of God will be released on July 25, 2017 from Harper Voyager.
