(The Generations a series Book 1)

“A Little Lower than the Angels” by Caryl McAdoo sizzles with spectacular views of heaven, angels and humans faced with life and death decisions. Based upon Scripture, Caryl draws from Genesis accounts as well as other passages from the Bible to undergird this work. Using her creative imagination, she transfers those images to the reader as she crafts a story that captures and transports them to other dimensions of reality, all while depicting an early earth and the first human population.
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. Caryl’s writing reminded me very much of C.S. Lewis’ “Chronicles of Narnia” and his equally imaginative “The Great Divorce.” Although Caryl McAdoo classifies this book as Biblical fiction, and the story rests squarely upon Biblical research, this reviewer believes that due to the imaginative, epic content the fantasy classification fits this work. This well told story made this reviewer eager to read the upcoming sequel “Then the Deluge Comes”. I give “A Little Lower than the Angels” five stars and “a thumbs up.”
Does this text fill gaps, or compound the creation debate?
This author claims only to be a fiction writer, not an angel, not struck with a pillar of wisdom-fire. She ate NOT of THE tree in Eden, but she's a fun/good writer.
A fresh voice in the gluttony of historical Bible novel genre. Worth a look, and first of a promised series. "A Little Lower than the Angels" almost reads like a sci-fi, being from viewpoints in the first human century as well as other-world venues. Not my normal book grab, but it became increasingly compelling as the story progressed. An eForm was provided me with no promise of a review, but it read worthy of a few comments. After the story end, mixed with some discussion/thought provoking questions, were included Caryl McAdoo's Biblical references and reasons for determining certain aspects of the story and characters. That was nice, as enjoyable as the book itself.
You may also like Caryl McAdoo's additional ongoing 5-star series which began with:
Vow Unbroken: A Novel
This first in The Generations Series, titled A Little Lower than the Angels, takes you through the lives of Adam and Eve, and Cain and Abel, and how the choices they each willfully made affected the rest of their lives.
You will experience Abel and his interactions in Heaven with various cherubim, his constant questioning of when the rest of his family will join him, and the biggest question of if Cain himself will be able to join him there.
Watch as Adam and Eve deal with the disobedience and sin of Cain, and his disappearance with his sister and wife, Sheriah. Adam and Eve are again left alone, Eve seemingly unable to bear the burden of her guilt that all of this tragedy her family is experiencing is due to her original sin in the Garden of Eden. Will she ever be able to repent enough and again enjoy a life on Earth with her husband? Your heart breaks right along with her as she buries her son into the ground, not quite understanding her husband’s insistence that they are from the earth, and to it they must return.
The facts in this story are true to the Bible, and come from the King James Version. The story is one interpretation of what life may have been like; what this family may have experienced as they lived through the ups and downs of their lives during this time period.
This story is a triumph for Biblical fiction: it gets everything right, while adding to the story to allow the reader to experience what the early Christians went through for and because of their faith.
I do not think Caryl McAdoo could write the remaining books of this series fast enough for me!
