Rise of the Fallen Review

About the Book
A six thousand year war rages and now the demonic Fallen are coming for him—the one man shrouded in mystery. Only Validus stands in their way.

Validus is the last and least of God’s angels, but he’s seen much across the millennia since his creation. Empires have risen and fallen as angelic and demonic forces battle in a raging war that will determine humanity's fate – and the fate of his defeated brothers.

Eventually called to be an earth-bound warrior, Validus rises to a position of power and respect, commanding legions of angels through impossible battles and overwhelming odds. But when orders arrive from the Creator's most elite Messenger, he finds himself suddenly demoted to a task of apparent insignificance considering the fierce war they are waging against the demonic Fallen – the covert protection of one unbelieving man.

Validus soon finds himself on a mission that will push him beyond his abilities as he battles to protect Drew Carter, for the Fallen are coming for him. Legions of them.

As Validus races against time to discover why Drew is so important to humanity's survival, can he stand between Drew and all who would destroy him? (Goodreads)

 My Review

 I read the first book in this series, and while this is not a genre I usually read I found it refreshing. This book on the other hand was a little slow from the start. The story line jumps around a lot and there are so many characters it was hard to follow at times. Drew in also in this book as the first just ended rather abruptly, this story seems to carry over. It's challenging to think about angels being around us and not just hanging out in heaven, but we know that it's true because it's written in the Bible! At the end of the book the author includes a lot of details on the many topics and ideas used in the books. He backs his ideas up with verses so you can see where he is coming from. It takes a great imagination to come up with this story line and I am impressed by his writing. This book jumped from one thing to the next a lot and at times a bit slow. I still enjoyed this type of storyline and encourage others to read these in order!

Four stars.
