From the Author
Az is one of the archangels of God - Michael, Gabriel, Lucifer, and Az. But he's the only one who doesn't have a job, a position. Michael is the Protector Warrior, Gabriel is the Messenger, Lucifer is the Day Star, and Az is a nobody. So he tries very hard to become someone and finally succeeds when God asks the archangels to get the clay to create Man. The others fail, but Az manages to appease Mother Earth and so retrieves the clay from which Man was made.
So now, he thinks of himself as the The Angel of Life. How wrong could he have been! Almost immediately, Cain murder's Abel and Az has to take his first soul. He is shocked at the brutality of it all and his thoughts and ideas about this heavenly creation collapse. He also realizes that his brother, Lucifer, is his nemesis and that his responsibility as the savior of Man's soul means that he's actually The Angel of Death.
As Az tries to defeat Lucifer, he finds himself becoming more and more like Lucifer. His anger and disdain for Man reach a point where he begins to neglect his responsibilities until he meets a little girl who shows him the light once more. But now, Lucifer has leverage over him and will stop at nothing, including using the girl, to cause Az's demise.
About the Author
Life for Amir became an adventure, from going to school in an ancient castle in Firenze and playing tennis on the famed lawns at Wimbledon, to dribbling a soccer ball on the white, sandy beaches of Brazil. However, what he did not realize at the time was that his roots had been permanently upheaved, that the life he knew and the family and friends he had left behind would only live in his memories. It was a new start, and although fortunate to be among the ones to get away, he was unwittingly catapulted into a new sense of identity and a lifelong journey in search of that ever elusive feeling of belonging.
After high school in Brazil, Amir moved to the U.S. and majored in computer systems engineering with a concentration in creative writing. He met his future wife in engineering lab and got married soon after graduation. Together, they moved to Brazil and started a successful post-production and desktop publishing company.
