"As hellish webs and divine puzzles intertwine, readers will once again find themselves taken on a ride of mythical proportions that has this particular reader practically panting for Volume #3.

From the Author
Although the core of this story was written as it had been originally drafted, the ending, when it came to me about half way through the novel, took me by complete surprise. As did the moves on the kings' board being made by the players. Characters, just like friends and lovers, sometimes have the strangest habit of heading off in the direction that best suits them, sometimes leaving those that love them behind. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I am never one to connect with characters, I don’t pick up a book and think that I am gone to find a character I can connect with because they are their own persons. I found nothing wrong with the editing or formatting and it kept everything nice and tidy when transitioning between chapters. Being that this is more fantasy and sci-fi which I found it to fit within that genre, as for recommendation I would, just not for children. This is a more mature book based on the subject matter and the complexity of the story.
The story includes a wide variety of fantasy characters in addition to angels and demons along with typical mortal humans. Without reading the first book in this series it will take a little bit of focus and patience to decipher good from evil or maybe a pinch of both!
Kingdoms are fought over by the Gods in the heavens and as usual, lesser creatures are always in the wrong place at the wrong time.
A story of greed, deceit, and revenge amongst the supernatural ranks, all with the desire for more everything, more power, and forbidden love will birth a war. Species will attempt to outdo other species and the battles will become a matter of survival.
Friendships between races weaken to the breaking point as love affairs are ripped into pieces. Death and destruction plague all as a young man leads his people to battle and just at the onslaught of defeat, surprising aid comes from unexpected origins.
Betrayal and trust, melt and mix to the point where the only thing reliable is one’s own survival. Forget prayers to a higher power, the Gods are the deliverers and the worst of all evil.
This author keeps you hooked with all the twists and turns and shocking events. However, I do recommend that you read the first book in the series as this is not a stand alone. I believe I would have enjoyed the first part of the story much more if I had read book One first instead of attempting to develop and decipher the characters on my own.
I do recommend this book for the paranormal and fantasy lovers out there! This story will have a little taste of everything that you crave, therefore giving this tale a BIG 4 Stars!
Obedience and loyalty abound in this story. A century’s long friendship between a demon and an angel is tested as the war between their two peoples escalates. Will it survive or will they feel the compulsion to remain true to their own people? A love affair ends in the most heartbreaking way. A young boy becomes a man as he leads his people on the battlefield. Help comes from surprising and unexpected sources, testing trust on all sides as class classifications go by the wayside. Unnecessary deaths broke my heart and made me want to cry when one called a friend turns into a traitor. One particular god is the vilest of the vile and I wanted to get him myself. The author blends all of this into one of the most amazing and emotional adventures that I have read.
There are several sub-plots within the main story and I guarantee that this book will keep you going. It blew my mind a daughter who had not seen her father for centuries turned into a dog! It is important to keep her identity a secret, so she turns into human form only when it is safe. I recommend this book even if it does not fall within the genre that you normally read. I also recommend reading book one, Fall From Grace: The Scribing of Ishitar, first to understand the characters and their development. You will not be disappointed. Please hurry with the next one!
