During Heaven’s rebellion, the angel Renat fell to Hell for loving the angel Emiel more than God. His punishment was harsh: he became a demon. Millennia later, Renat has long given up hope on ever reuniting with his love, finding what little pleasure can be found in the lands of the damned. He's shocked when an angel is found at the borders of Hell, and he quickly realizes ...more

3 Stars - A fallen angel, a life in Hell and to ultimately be saved by the one you love.

I usually like weird tales, exciting new worlds, new types of characters and inventive writer. And how weird this is, because it is - I actually liked the story overall. It's not a great novella, but it was an interesting story to read.
‘With Emiel, Renat longed for more than the simple and distant pleasure that came with the duty of love. Emiel had skin that Renat dreamed of touching, a mouth he burned to ta

Loved this freebie which was from last year's Love is Always Write event, another 4.5 stars.

A shortie review. I absolutely loved Cari's story from this year's LHNB event, and decided to do some tracking down of other stories. This is a story of angels and devils, and in particular two angels Renat and Emiel. Renat is in love with Emiel, but when Heaven is rocked and torn apart by war, Renat and Emiel find themselves on opposite sides of the divide.

How this is resolved, and what happens to the t
If this one really wanted to at least try to be a good story, it would have to stretch itself to a hundred or so more pages, in order to explore fucking something. This way, it's just a quick story of "damnation" where hell doesn't really look that awful and the love is not deep enough to really make people suffer, because hey, there's God. Now, if you're a believer, stop reading right here; I am an atheist, and all this bullshit about the fact that not putting God first will make you go to hell ...more

The way the religious overtones were written & the overall writing style didn't quite work for me. Not that it was badly written, mind you, as it wasn't. Just not for me.

Beautifully done and cleverly maneuvered doctrine in this angel/demon love story.

A beautiful story about love, grace, and trust, this takes the idea of the falling of angels one step further and examines what would happen if one of them fell because of love. The kind of love that is "too personal", and doesn’t put God first. Kind of a difficult situation to imagine happening to an angel, but it is an interesting assumption. I have to admit that the writing pulled me in, the characters had me fascinated, and the idea of "what if" the way Cari interpreted it had me turning the ...more

I’m a fan of Cari Z and loved these two characters during their cameo in the Cambion series (which I highly recommend). The author pointed out to me that Emiel and Renat had their own story and I beat feet to get a hold of it. It was available as a free download on Storm Moon Press’ website and I’ve read it twice so far. It has all the hallmarks of an epic romance but surprisingly compact within a short story. It could easily have been expanded to a full novel but perhaps that would have been to ...more

Really REALLY good story about a fallen angel and his long lost love. Cari perfectly wove the picture into the story which is always nice, since that's kind of the point. This was a beautiful story that had me tearing up at times. Yes it's about angels so there is a certain amount of "our Father's will" and what-not, but given the characters it is completely appropriate and wonderfully done, not at all preachy, it jus
A beautiful story. Absolutely beautiful. While short, it managed to tell a complete story with perfectly chosen language. I felt for Renat, and I loved Emiel's quiet faith in his love for Renat and for God. It's not overly religious, though religion is the backdrop for stories such as this one, and I love how well the worldbuilding was done. All in all, wonderful from start to finish. I definitely want to see the story hinted at between Satan and Michael, though!

I'm not usually a huge fan of angel stories, but I enjoyed this much more than I expected to. Not the usual m/m angel story.
A Girl Has No Name
In All Your Ways is a short story about Renat, a fallen Angel forced to follow Lucifer in the Kingdom of Hell after betraying God's believes by trying to make the man he loves leave Heaven with him.

Renat makes himself a name in Hell and becomes a very powerful demon - the Prince of Hell. Remembering his beloved angel Emiel by the means of a beautiful statue, Renat struggels trough many years of darkness and tries to keep his physical beauty intact.

One day, the paths of Renat and Emiel cross ag
I absolutely loved this (and discovered that I have a soft spot for fallen angel stories lol)! Renat has loved Emiel for as long as he can remember. When Lucifer was cast out of Heaven, Renat tried to convince Emiel to leave Heaven with him. Emiel could not go against the will of God and the two angels were seperated for millenia, Renat becoming a powerful demon in Hell and Emiel continuing his angel duties in Heaven.

When Emiel is captured just inside the gates of Hell, Renat must fight to prote
I suppose liberal and/or gay Christians/Jews could appreciate this short story to its full extent and feel the romanticism that was surely intended to be felt.
As for me I tried to read it like a romantic fantasy or something based on myth as I would read a tale based on Greek mythology but I doubly failed.

First, the religious mysticism on which this M/M tale is based is irrepressible and cannot be neutralised.
Second, even if I managed to do that, I never could stand god-like characters in fantas

For those who are concerned about religious overtones in angel/demon stories, yes, this one does have some. I personally do not find this story to be overly preachy, but the fall of the angels from Heaven plays a part in this story, as does God's Grace and His Will, so if you think that may bother you, you may be right. They exist enough to make you think about their importance in relation to the story and what truth they may hold, but I do not feel like I was hit over the head with it. (Others ...more

God created the angels and they all called him "Father". I wonder if can file this under incest - ha-ha



I do realize that

- Yep, it was God's punishment for Renat to make him suffer for a thousand years for choosing to leave his parent's house fall.
- Yep, it was probably God's intention to cure Renat of his resentment towards humans by making him one.

Stars off

A fine addition to the LiAW series, about an Angel and a Demon, and their journey to find again the love that they once shared. It is about hope, and a love that survives despite unbearable suffering, and that such love can be its own reward.
Very good angel/demon-fallen angel story as part of the LIAW event.
Sweet story of two angels, one fallen and another still shiny and pure finding a way to be together. Renat and Emiel loves each other yet as Angels it's somehow problematic so when the opportunity comes, Renat decides to Fall and asks Emiel to join him so they could love each other freely. Emiel refuses. He loves Renat but is unable to deny God's will. For Renat God comes second to Emiel, yet leaving him behind is not what he thought will happen with his proposal. Thousand of years later Emiel a ...more

This review can be found at Brief Encounters Reviews.

This short starts when all hell broke loose in heaven (ah, religious humour ), when Renat knew that he would be going to the newly formed hell with Lucifer because in his heart he had put his constant companion Emiel first over God. He confesses his love to Emiel and asks him to join him, however Emiel refuses to go against God and Renat spends the next millennia mooning about it essentially. When he hears of an angel arriving in hell, he quic

A story about angels--especially fallen--are right up my alley, so within the first few lines, I felt pretty secure that this story was going to get a good rating from me. That being said, a poorly written or formulated story with fallen angels that screws up still won't satisfy! However, this story is equal parts heartbreaking and sweet, with Renat's struggle as he loves Emiel and is rejected--by him and by God--and is cast down into Hell.

While the idea of some of the fallen angels being cast o

Can I give some advice while reading this story? Do not click underneath the "want to read" link that says read the story. You will only get a preview and then be hugely disappointed because you can't see anymore. What I did was read it via the url link and what I got from that was amazing. This story could very well be the best Angel and Demon story I have read in a looooong time. Yep, that good.

I was surprised by how much I liked this one. It may have had a lot to do with the fact that the mythology in it reminded me much more of the TV show Supernatural than of the Christianity I grew up with. So right from the start, my mind was filled with all of these delightfully lovely images. ;)

I also love that this is the most amazing example of love triumphing over everything, and the power of love to redeem and make us better.

While I admired both of the characters, I didn't really feel like I

This was quite a sweet story. I wasn't too sure what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised. The idea of a second chance when an angel falls from grace. I really love this story.
As I was reading it, I kind of felt like I'd read it before/started it. Maybe it's just the subject matter; I have read quite a few angel/demon stories and when they begin, they all kind of seem the same.
I mean when it began after the little mini prologue-y thing.

Marvelously handled, I'd say. I think the author actually found the balance between demon, angel, human that actually - at least for me - works, and works extremely well. Each is nuanced in its own way and though the ending seems more o

I really liked this one; I've always enjoyed stories of redemption and I don't think you can do much better than the tale of a fallen angel. Unlike some other novellas, I found myself completely satisfied with this and I felt it ended in a good place; I don't find myself sitting here wishing for at least an epilogue. I'd love to see more along these lines in the future...perhaps with Michael and Lucifer? Either way, this was a really enjoyable read and I know I'll read it again in the future.

Hmmm, dark and light come together and love can conquer all! I love angel stories and this one was unique. The detail in the world building was wonderful. Despite the violence and dark overtone to the story, there was something just touching and beautiful to be found as well. I really enjoyed it and hope to see more!!!

this was my first time i read this author. good story, but sometimes when she was describing stuff it got to wordy and started to lose my attention.

but over all a love story of a angel and falling angel, and a side of lucifer that isnt seen.
3.5 rounded up,

very good for being so short. I wanted a quick read and this was a satisfying love story. Angles and the fallen separated for thousands of years, it was a new type of read for me, I just wish there was more.
