The Fallen (The Fallen (Original Numbering) #1)
On the eve of his eighteenth birthday, Aaron dreams of a darkly violent landscape. He can hear the sounds of weapons clanging, the screams of the stricken, and another sound he cannot quite decipher. But gazing upward at the sky, he suddenly understands. It is the sound of great wings, angels' wings...more

I liked that there were NOT paragraphs literally describing the shape and leanness of chest muscles. Also appreciated was the lack of smirks, knowing glances, half-smiles, and all that silliness.

It is very much like his more recent book, A Kiss Before the Apocalypse. I can't decide if it's distracting or enjoyable. I generally like when a premise is created and carried throughout different books by an author. I did enjoy Apocalypse and the premise. Some of the questions raised:
-- What happens to angels when G-d stops talking to them?
-- Will we/they recognize His messages wh ...more
However, I was disappointed once again. I received the first two books in this series, The Fallen and Leviathan, in one volume. I had to make myself finish The Fallen.
The writing was very stiff and stand-offish. I could not connect with Aaron at all. When we’re given back-story about the angels, I almost felt like I was reading the Bible because of the way it was written.
I know this boo ...more
Now first of all, this is a very easy read. You can easily finish this book in a day. It is not too long, it is fast-paced and it is very straightforward.
I did like the story and the characters (especially the evil guy, he was quite interseting...and I just have a tendency to like villains). The main character I liked a bit less and for one specific reason: he was in the denial fase just a bi ...more

This book is about a boy named Aaron Corbet who on his birthday had a headache. This headache may have traumatized him because he is able to understand different languages and as well as speak them. He is able to talk to his dog. Aaron is a foster child and was grown up never seeing his real parents. From all his learning, he found out he was a Nephillim. He is also an offspring of angel too. Also Aaron is a earth woman. He in the beginning was kind of ...more
The story is okay. It's starts off quite slow and then suddenly it takes a monster upswing and before you kn ...more
kisah di buku ini yaitu awal dari sebah kenyataan bahwa sesungguhnya Aaron adalah seorang Nephilim, yaitu keturunan dari malaikat dan manusia, ya, ayah Aaron ternyata malaikat dan ibunya manusia biasa.
bercerita tentang malaikat yang terbagi menjadi 2 kubu, dimana 1 kubu ingin membasmi nephilim (karena menganggap mereka aib), dan satu kubu lagi yang membela para nephilim. kubu yang membela ini dikarenakan mereka percaya bahwa ramalan di masa ...more
This book surprised me. I bought the omnibus version of the book with book 1 & 2 because I liked the cover:
I wasn't sure if I would really like the story or not, but I have to admit that the story was pretty good. I especially loved the stuff with Gabriel (view spoiler)[ the dog (hide spoiler)]. I really liked that Aaron not only (view spoiler)[understands all languages, but had full conversations with his dog, Gabriel (hide spoiler)]. That was super cute.
I was kind of ...more

ini seri fallen angel yg lumaya banyak actionnya, dibanding seri lainnya yg pernah aku bca.
gila ya! baruuu aja mulai baca udah ada tokoh yg mati. jadi jgn kaget klo ntar banyaaak banget tokoh yg mati. (ups..! :D)
temanya masih samaa.. ttg nephilim, makhluk stengah malaikat dan manusia. nah para Kekuatan (yg dipimpin ole Verchiel) memburu nephilim-nephilim ini, soalnya menurut Verchiel, para nephilim itu makhluk hina dan membelot, dan udah ribuan tahun si verchiel ini membasmi semua nep ...more
The start to this was very confusing, although it certainly did up the tension. I couldn't read fast enough to try to figure out what was going on. But all it does is set up the tension for what will happen once you get past the prologue.
That was disgusting. I don't care if Zeke is an angel, fallen or not. He killed Gabe! Just to make a point! And it does weird things to G ...more
Aaron tidak menyadari bahwa dia seorang Nephilim hingga ulang tahunnya yang ke-18. Dia bisa mengerti bahasa asing yang tidak pernah dipelajarinya, dia bahkan bisa berbicara dengan anjingnya, Gabriel. Aaron tidak menerima kenya ...more
*Warning: possible spoilers ahead.*
The Fallen 1 (which contains both The Fallen and Leviathan) is an amazing story about Nephilim, fallen angels, and absolution. The Powers are an elite force of angels, doing God's bidding on Earth. During The Great War of Heaven, Lucifer and his followers were cast out of Heaven, destined to walk the Earth among the mortals, until the time that The Powers searched them out and destroyed them.
While they were on Earth, they ‘consorted’ with hu ...more

'Want to play ball now,' Gabriel [the dog] declared in a very clear and precise voice.
Aaron opened his eyes and gazed up into the grinning face of the animal. There was no doubt now. The day's descent into madness was complete. He was, in fact, losing his mind.”
