I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
Simple synopsis: God has cast Satan (named as Helel) and his followers out of heaven and sent them plummeting to earth for imprisonment. In time, they are released from their captivity and begin their plot to wage war against God and reenter heaven. In the process, God's Word would be proven fallible, resulting in the end of all existence. The book's main characters are charged with the task of fending off the assault of the fallen ones.
Stories of biblical fiction concerning the end times always interest me and this one did not disappoint. The story was very interesting right from the beginning. In many places, the author used a writing style that flowed almost poetically and was very reminiscent of biblical works, and that lent a feel of realism to the story.
The book contains elements of biblical prophecy, time travel and even a romance that is central to the story. It is very complex in nature as it bounces back and forth between time periods. As other reviewers have mentioned, this story requires full focus. There are an array of characters that appear once and are not heard from again until many chapters later. It is very easy to forget about them but it is crucial to keep them fresh in your mind.
Much of the middle portion of the story was concerned with one of the main character's romantic relationship. The relationship plays a role in the story so it was not unnecessary but the story suffered during the time that the romance was dealt with. The story as a whole was difficult to follow at times. The story itself was very complex but also there were instances where something occurred or was said that was not explained, and it was difficult to figure out what just took place.
Day of Rain wrapped up with an exciting conclusion that, admittedly, answered a couple of questions I had about some things that previously took place. That eased my mind quite a bit and helped in my enjoyment of the story.
