“In a world seething with anger in search of so-called justice, James Kimmel, Jr., spins a heartbreaking story that delivers a rebuke with courage, intelligence, and elegant prose.” —Bryan Gruley, author of The Skeleton Box
"In his first novel, Kimmel has created a thrilling and fantastic world, a heady combination of the movie What Dreams May Come, John Grisham’s best work, and Dante’s Divine Comedy. Sometimes dreamily lyrical and sometimes harshly realistic, Kimmel’s authorial voice is undeniably compelling. Raw, tender, and intelligent, The Trial of Fallen Angels is a fascinating glimpse into the judgment of lost souls and recovered memories." --Booklist (starred review)
"Kimmel pays readers a supreme compliment here by inviting them to take seriously the theological question of the Last Judgment.... An intriguing, intricate ,and metaphysical novel—not your typical fare." --Kirkus Reviews
"This powerful debut from lawyer Kimmel ... explores a myriad of spiritual concepts expressed in various religions. He deftly unveils each new charactyer and cleverly balances the positive and negative aspects of their lives. Building upon the memories of multiple generations, Kimmel has written a storring spiritual thriller" --Library Journal
