I interviewed Dina Rae on my website and she was incredibly personable. I liked her attitude so much, I bought her book 'Halo of the Damned.' Here is the link to her interview.
[...]

This is a simple, yet fun and twisted read. The basic story is about Andel,one of the fallen angels who is in cahoots with Lucifer. Here on Earth, Andel runs an ad agency in Chicago. He's done a fantastic job using advertising as a means to manipulate and deceive people away from salvation.

Although Andel does eat a lot of people, he is the central villain of this story, and not the hero.

The heroine in this story is Joanna, a cocaine addict fresh out of prison. She is just getting out when we meet her and her sister, Kim. Their mother has recently died and the two women are trying to get Mom's estate in order. Things about Mom begin to be uncovered around the same time as Joanna is getting hired by Andel to fill the shoes of someone he ate earlier in the story.

Dina is a very methodical writer. Her research into angelic lore shows itself clearly. Dina wasn't afraid to get her hands bloody with this story, and I got several grim chuckles from the poor sods receiving undeserved horrors. I'm sick that way.

This story made me think about soap operas. Once you think you have a character pinned and you think you know what's coming next, the next thing you know you get the next level of dirt. The dirt just keeps on getting dirtier.

Read with a smile and don't take yourself too seriously and you'll find 'Halo of the Damned' to be a fun read. If your looking for 'high-brow' literature, this might not be your book. Did I remember to warn that people get eaten in this book?

Dina Rae's Halo of the Damned, a different type of paranormal, is published by Eternal Press. Instead of the retelling of Gods and Goddesses, Ms. Rae decides to go with one of Satan's own. As many of you have suspected after bombarded by images of perfect slender females in commercials, there is pure evil in advertising. This happens to be a devil named Andel's tale.

Andel shows up in Wheaton, Illinois to do Satan's bidding, or at least that's the plan. Andel head up an advertising firm named Evil Empire. He's so successful because he really knows how to use subliminal advertising to feed into people's fear and inherent greed. Think Mad Men only more modern. The story opens with a recent murder, and not much rationale behind it. Perhaps, murder is what dark angels do. Like all advertising executives, Andel becomes full of himself and does not feel the need to follow his original orders.

Enter our female characters, who more than what they seem, and more than what they know. Joanna Easterhouse, talk about a telling name, her sister Kim, and her daughter Maria are a bit different. Unaware that they aren't fully human, their psychic gifts come as a surprise, not necessarily a pleasant one either.

As you would expect Joanna takes a job at the Evil Empire and becomes involved in Andel's machinations. A battle for domination ensues. It takes place on the world stage and culminates in Wheaton. This fast paced, and sometimes gory, story takes advantage of the Yezidism, angel-worshipping religion to support its premise.

Halo of the Damned does have dark romantic elements rather like Wuthering Heights. Horror, paranormal, dark romance fans should all enjoy this book. From his creative cover by Dawne Dominique to its unusual storyline and stunning ending, it is a tale that is sure to stay with you.

Armaros, or Andel as he likes to be called, has been around for a long time. If you asked him he'd tell you, "I was made at the very beginning, with all of God's angels.... So to answer your question, I'm as old as old can be."

Andel is one of the fallen. He was sent to Hell along with one-third of the rest of the angels, those who stood alongside Satan in a war to defy God. Which they lost.

Now he's got this huge advertising company, The Evil Empire, which he uses to trick and steal the souls of thousands. He sends these souls to his master, who adds them to his army of evil warriors.

Andel is despicable and so horrendous. He doesn't have to eat his victims to obtain their souls. He does it because he enjoys it, revels in it.

This scene from the beginning shows his real colors behind the suave business man facade he presents to others.

You'll find him sitting in his office, calmly gazing at the young woman lying dead on the floor in a growing pool of blood.

After he licks his knife clean, he slithers over, slurps up all of her blood and consumes most of her remains. He'd had high hopes for his daughter, but, she didn't work out.

Then he calls in his trusted assistant, Marcus, to clean up after him.

Marcus is the worst of humanity, if you could call him human. He's been killing since he was 10 years old. And now he'll do whatever Andel asks of him, with pleasure, because of the promise to be made like him.

Next, you'll meet Joanna, fresh out of a two and a half-year prison term for intent to distribute cocaine. At least one good thing came of her incarceration. She's clean for once.

Her sister, Kim, picks her up outside the prison and takes her to their mother's house.
