Rise Of The Fallen: A Review
Warning this is the second book in a series!
A six thousand year war rages and now the demonic Fallen are coming for him—the one man shrouded in mystery. Only Validus stands in their way.
Validus is the last and least of God’s angels, but he’s seen much across the millennia since his creation. Empires have risen and fallen as angelic and demonic forces battle in a raging war that will determine humanity's fate – and the fate of his defeated brothers.
Eventually called to be an earth-bound warrior, Validus rises to a position of power and respect, commanding legions of angels through impossible battles and overwhelming odds. But when orders arrive from the Creator's most elite Messenger, he finds himself suddenly demoted to a task of apparent insignificance considering the fierce war they are waging against the demonic Fallen – the covert protection of one unbelieving man.
Validus soon finds himself on a mission that will push him beyond his abilities as he battles to protect Drew Carter, for the Fallen are coming for him. Legions of them.
As Validus races against time to discover why Drew is so important to humanity's survival, can he stand between Drew and all who would destroy him?
The sequel to Cloak of The Light oh boy was I ready. Until I found out the main character wasn’t Drew Carter, I was severely disappointed. I was waiting for the day for this book to come out. Only to find out that the greatest thing about the first book wasn’t showing up in the second.
I mean he does show up but for only about one page every other chapter. I tried not to let that effect the way I was reading Validuss story but it did. This book didn’t continue from the first book, it went into Validuss past and and then to his point of view of what was happening in the first.
Overall I really tried not to hate it but then I ended up finding something wrong. The book is pretty action packed and filled with chaos if that’s someones thing. I just really hope the next book is from Drews point of view or I think I just might skip it.
