After struggling for several long months, Jason and Sarah Wyatt are expecting a healthy baby boy. How could they have known that the young child growing in Sarah’s womb is the banished soul of the youngest archangel of heaven? His crime is so unspeakable that it seems unreal. The archangel Gabriel has sworn to watch over him, for he alone knows the truth about why the archangel Omega would defy his eldest brother, Michael, and bring the Antichrist before God. Could one act of kindness save the darkest of souls?
Review by Angela
Wow. Where to start with this book?? I was asked to read this book in exchange for an honest review. The story in this book is pretty complicated. It is easy to get lost and overwhelmed by the characters and how much is going on. However, it isn’t a book that you feel like you can’t finish because it’s so complex. It makes you want to read more. You can’t help but be drawn in by the characters and the situations that arise. The Angels are so awesome in this book and I love all of the history and intertwining that Brandon does with them. I think my favorite angel is Gabriel. He is the older brother you want that takes care of you and mentors you. Or the doting uncle that you can talk to about any subject.
I feel sorry for Damien as he is a misunderstood creature. His father, Lucifer, hates him because he has a soul. How is that Damien’s fault? But, he doesn’t care. He beats him anyway. But Gabriel wants to bring Damien home to heaven where he belongs. The other angels aren’t so sure if he belongs there. Or if Lucifer is just using him to get into heaven so he can take over. Omega becomes friends with Damien but Michael banished Omega into a human child to live as a mortal.
Like I said, this story is complex. There are epic battles, love stories, tragedy, triumph and a very large cliffhanger. If you don’t like vivid imagery, relatable characters, stories about angels/demons/God/heaven/hell, then DO NOT get this book. I have not read the bible. I do not know many stories about heaven and hell, but I love Brandon’s version of both. I can not wait to get the next installment. And I am looking forward to it’s complexity because I for one enjoyed it in this book. 5 books!
