Description
Hellgate: London is the prequel to the video game of the same name, an RPG in which London is taken over by hordes of demons and humanity must fight for survival.

“On October 31st, 2020, man stood against an invasion of demonkind at the battle of All Hallows’ Eve. In the weeks leading up to this decisive clash, as the barrier between our world the underworld dissolved…many people discovered in themselves a calling…”

John Fowler, a college Rugby champ, wakes up from a terrible nightmare filled with demons only to discover he’s late for class. At school his archeology class is uncovering some remains on the grounds of the college. Mostly they find broken pots and household items, but amongst the debris is a skeleton buried face down. The teacher explains that in earlier centuries those believed to worship Satan were buried face down and on unhallowed ground. Near the remains John finds a strange talisman.

The body and the talisman are only the beginning. John and Lindsey, his cricket-bat-wielding sister, learn that their family are members of the Templar Knights and sworn to fight evil. Not only that but evil is one the rise again and they can’t just sit quietly on the sidelines hoping it will go away. Soon the two are on a quest, hoping to discover more about the talisman and their family.

Why is this Here?

This was a really good book. I felt the action scenes were very well done (which is hard to do in a novel), and the plot of the survivors of the hellgate struggling to unify not only within their own factions but also with others while fighting the invading force of demons was superb. The trappings of medieval life, futuristic technology, and apcoalyptic setting blend well. Although I haven't played the game, I'd say the books are better than how the various gaming magazines have rated the actual game itself despite the hype.

I wish more books would be written about this series as I am very curious to learn about what happens to Lord Cross and the Cabalist guy (Can't remember the name).

But why is this book in MangaUpdates? Its neither manga nor novel form of a manga.
