This book has two stories that merge into one.... one story is a young woman named Jana that lives in a tower for the angels. She is a slave, as are all the other humans who reside there. While she is serving the angels we get to see very different sides of them. And just like humans, there seem to be some of them that are good and some that are evil. But Jana has been trained to do what she is told to do without question, and she has a teeny rebellious streak in her. Her story as she gets to know a couple of the angels was riveting. The first time she saw a garden and the stars was my favorite scene....
The other story was about a group of humans that are on a mission to kill the angels that have slaughtered and enslaved the human race... fighting their way across the land while they plot to take them all out.
This was an really unique story and really fun to read. The ending was absolutely epic and left you really wanting more. I will be on the look out for more from this author.
I would recommend this book to anyone!
On the one hand, you’ve the battle of a few desperate humans, trying to avenge themselves and their lost families. They want to inflict as much damage as possible to the fallen angels who’ve destroyed their world and rampaged the earth. They must operate in small groups because it’s too dangerous to congregate in large groups. It’s guerrilla warfare.
On the other hand, you’ve got a romance between a servant girl and a beautiful angel determined to woo her.
A rebellion occurred in Heaven as the Maker betrayed the angels. The rebels lost the battle and fell to the earth, most of them deeply burnt and scarred. Drunk with their new freedom, the angels rampage the earth, killing humans. Soon after, diseases killed most of the humanity.
Former God’s warrior or guardian angels pledged to serve humans, the former servants are now masters. They took shelter on top of a New York skyscraper in what look like a gnarled metallic cactus known as The Perch.
The angels are brutal if not cruel masters: "anything could happen when they were bored".
Jana, a pretty girl has been a slave (aka servant) to the angels most of her life. To evade her harsh reality, she dreams of a pink and glorious future. Unfortunately, she’ll catch the eye of Rhamiel, one of the few still beautiful angels. From that moment on, her life will change dramatically and she’ll be either threatened by Ecanus, a sadistic angel; warned by Nefta a jealous female angel or pursued by a very enamored Rhamiel. She’ll be frightened perpetually : "How much do they expect me to take? As much as needed to survive. You take, and then you take some more (…) It’s do as they say or die.Read more ›
This book earned a 5-star rating from me for its uniqueness. Take everything that has been ingrained in you from all sources of society, culture, religion and tradition about angels. Now, read They Who Fell and watch as Mr. Kneupper completely turns it upside down. His perspective is refreshingly original and really makes the reader think about what they believe about angels, and why. I was left debating within myself all I thought I knew about the concepts of good and evil, God and man, and angels.
I loved the two-part drama of this story. It has a strong theme of action and revenge, tempered by a beautiful romance that left me bouncing between the stories with great eagerness. Open yourself to this wild ride of a book, this captivatingly vivid masterpiece, and be in awe of what this new author has created. It is a savvy, sophisticated, beauty of a book and I’m so glad to know it’s the first of a trilogy! I look forward to reading more.
Jana understands just how precarious the world inside the Perch is. As a slave, doing the wrong thing, speaking out of turn or just looking her angel keepers in the eye could all result in a harsh punishment or ultimately death. Living in fear is second nature, but being frightened all the time serves as motivation. She wants to survive.
William Holt lives outside the Perch, fighting daily with others in his cell to destroy the angels and reclaim what's left of the world for the dwindling human population. Nothing will stop him: not the Vichies, humans that have pledged themselves to the angels but prey on weaker humans, not the unexpected creatures now roaming the Earth, and especially not the debauched angels themselves.
Holy awesome surprise! Mr. Kneupper hooked me with the first chapter and kept me turning pages until I finished the book in one sitting. Excellent writing, great characterization and a phenomenal plot landed They Who Fell at a solid 5 star rating. I wanted to read the next installment immediately. Since I couldn't (hasn't been released yet) I spent the next couple of days thinking about the story.
By turning the traditionally ingrained idea of benevolent angles on its head and creating a plausible set of circumstances, I seriously questioned what would happen if a second heavenly fall occurred. Would the angels I've viewed as guardians become my worst nightmare? Would God turn his back on all of His creations and let the outcome be determined by the players themselves?
No matter a person's religious belief, Mr. Kneupper's world is well-developed and scarier than hell. I would never want to experience that kind of existence firsthand, but I'll gladly immerse myself in the next story of this trilogy!

Good story, but I wish I was his editor. It's difficult to get past blatant spelling and grammar errors, but I'm still enjoying the tale.Published 5 days ago by Kevin McDermott
This was so different and thought provoking. Let's face it - none of us knows what goes on, if anything, in the heavens.Published 18 days ago by Elizabeth Black
I would give this 5 stars, except I didn't know until I got to the last page that it's a series. It ended with the same type of cliffhanger that tv series do each year. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Nancy Hootman
It was really different but not whst I thought. However its a good story but it jumps back and forth a bit to much. Still i am reading the second one now and its coming together.Published 1 month ago by Kathleen Sanderson
I like the setting. A dystopian world brought about after a battle in heaven between Angels. It is a great start of how the Angels that have "fallen" to Earth have gone... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Robert III
The fallen angels, as depicted in the books, were surprising. I never pictured angels as being devious and evil and able to procreate. Fascinating books. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Bettye L. Mc Coy
