This book has two stories that merge into one.... one story is a young woman named Jana that lives in a tower for the angels. She is a slave, as are all the other humans who reside there. While she is serving the angels we get to see very different sides of them. And just like humans, there seem to be some of them that are good and some that are evil. But Jana has been trained to do what she is told to do without question, and she has a teeny rebellious streak in her. Her story as she gets to know a couple of the angels was riveting. The first time she saw a garden and the stars was my favorite scene....
The other story was about a group of humans that are on a mission to kill the angels that have slaughtered and enslaved the human race... fighting their way across the land while they plot to take them all out.
This was an really unique story and really fun to read. The ending was absolutely epic and left you really wanting more. I will be on the look out for more from this author.
I would recommend this book to anyone!
On the one hand, you’ve the battle of a few desperate humans, trying to avenge themselves and their lost families. They want to inflict as much damage as possible to the fallen angels who’ve destroyed their world and rampaged the earth. They must operate in small groups because it’s too dangerous to congregate in large groups. It’s guerrilla warfare.
On the other hand, you’ve got a romance between a servant girl and a beautiful angel determined to woo her.
A rebellion occurred in Heaven as the Maker betrayed the angels. The rebels lost the battle and fell to the earth, most of them deeply burnt and scarred. Drunk with their new freedom, the angels rampage the earth, killing humans. Soon after, diseases killed most of the humanity.
Former God’s warrior or guardian angels pledged to serve humans, the former servants are now masters. They took shelter on top of a New York skyscraper in what look like a gnarled metallic cactus known as The Perch.
The angels are brutal if not cruel masters: "anything could happen when they were bored".
Jana, a pretty girl has been a slave (aka servant) to the angels most of her life. To evade her harsh reality, she dreams of a pink and glorious future. Unfortunately, she’ll catch the eye of Rhamiel, one of the few still beautiful angels. From that moment on, her life will change dramatically and she’ll be either threatened by Ecanus, a sadistic angel; warned by Nefta a jealous female angel or pursued by a very enamored Rhamiel. She’ll be frightened perpetually : "How much do they expect me to take? As much as needed to survive. You take, and then you take some more (…) It’s do as they say or die.Read more ›
This book earned a 5-star rating from me for its uniqueness. Take everything that has been ingrained in you from all sources of society, culture, religion and tradition about angels. Now, read They Who Fell and watch as Mr. Kneupper completely turns it upside down. His perspective is refreshingly original and really makes the reader think about what they believe about angels, and why. I was left debating within myself all I thought I knew about the concepts of good and evil, God and man, and angels.
I loved the two-part drama of this story. It has a strong theme of action and revenge, tempered by a beautiful romance that left me bouncing between the stories with great eagerness. Open yourself to this wild ride of a book, this captivatingly vivid masterpiece, and be in awe of what this new author has created. It is a savvy, sophisticated, beauty of a book and I’m so glad to know it’s the first of a trilogy! I look forward to reading more.
It's hard to be interested in characters who are two dimensional. There's no background, no description as to what the characters look like---we the readers are simply told they're beautiful and expected to believe it because the author says so. Because we know so little about these characters, it's impossible to tell whether or not their actions are believable. The main female protagonist, Jana, goes from timid and sweet to easily able to defy her "masters" then back. There's no evidence to show this build up, this sudden urge to rebel---all we know is that Jana is a sweet girl who suddenly doesn't want to do what she's told. It feels as though she's trying to "follow her heart," yet the author didn't write a believable enough attempt.
The love interests are forced, they're only apart of the plot simply because the writer wanted it so. Jana's childhood friend, Peter, declares his love for her. But there is no real reason for this declaration. We as a reader don't see any interaction between them other than a few bossy pieces of advice that Peter gives Jana at the beginning of the book. There's no hint of a friendship or budding romance. In fact, in the first few pages involving Peter, he is written as though he is a second thought (not of the character but of the writer) that it's a surprise that he makes another appearance later in the plot. The main love interest, Rhamiel, feels just as out of character, context and forced upon the reader. It's out of the blue that he takes such a fascination with Jana---we as a reader don't see where the allure is.Read more ›
