Wesley Snipes is adding author to his resumé.
The Blade actor has inked a deal with HarperCollins for the release of his supernatural thriller, “Talon of God,” co-authored with Ray Norman.
Here’s the scoop via Deadline:
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.
“The lead character Lauren is a very spiritual person,” Snipes said. “A spiritual woman, and her father is a minister who is put to the challenge. Lauren has been chosen to be a Holy Warrior here on Earth. She’s a doctor; her father is a Baptist minister.”
“Talon of God” arrives on July 25.
