The Fallen and Leviathan (The Fallen #1)
THE ULTIMATE QUEST FOR REDEMPTION
On his eighteenth birthday, Aaron begins to hear strange voices and is convinced he is going insane. But having moved from foster home to foster home, Aaron doesn't know whom he can trust. He wants to confide in the cute girl from class, but fears she'll confirm he's crazy.
Then a mysterious man begins following Aaron. He knows about...more
I couldn't finish it. I read the first part and that was about it, really boring! Normally a book does not take much to please me, it needs:
3. Cool back story
This book had all of this but together they were all really crap. I bought the book for $15 and am now really regretting it. The only reason I read it was because I wanted to read it before I watched the movie. But truthfully really not worth it! Don't both ...more
And then there's Verchiel, our villain. And at times, he can be a pretty bad-ass one. But most of the time he was around, all I could do was scratch my head and wonder why. What's his motivation? I get what he's SUPPOSED to be. He's that self-righteous villain who thinks God wants him to do evil th ...more
This book is filled with absolute nonsense, plain and simple. It's boring, confusing, and the main character was so irritating that I wanted to slap him. I'm really into angel mythology and occult stuff, so I vaguely knew who was who, but if I hadn't done as much research as I have, I know that I would have had ...more
Aaron is one of those characters you immediately endear to when you begin reading. Orphaned and having spent his life in care, he has finally found a family who loves him and is making a place for himself in the world, doing well at school and hoping for a college scholarship.
But things start to get strange. It's starts with the the dreams, but then inexplicably on his eighteenth birthday Aaron is suddenly able to speak and understand multiple languages, and ...more
First - The Fallen:
First, I read somewhere the the author got started in comic books. If that's true - I totally see it. The abruptness with which chapters jumped between our main character, Aaron, and others was hard for me to handle. The character development was almost non existent. In fact, ...more
The first thing that stuck me about the book is Aaron: despite all the angst and woe-is-me stuff, he is a genuinely nice kid who is just trying ...more
After the bore of the firt few chapters I kept trucking along thinking that at some point it would have to get good. About halfway through, I realized that nothing good was going to come out of this book but I insisted on finishing since I have already spent the money on the book and invested my time. Unfortunately for fallen angel lovers everyw ...more
With the help of fallen Angles he is able to crossover into his new found heritage without being eliminated by th ...more
I was immediately hooked on these from the very first sentence in the first book and read all the way through to the end of the second omnibus. They are a FANTASTIC series of four WONDERFUL books with losts of unexpected twists(and a few expected ones) and turns. DEFINITELY a must read for anyone who loves the supernatural! Yes, there are strong Catholic and Christian overtones in the books(it IS a series about angels, after all), but they don't beat you over the head ...more
THE FALLEN is a wildly entertaining, dark, yet hopeful read. Aaron is such a great character – he loves his foster family, does good in school, works at a local veterinary clinic…he’s normal. Except when he isn’t. I really connected with Aaron and the trials he has to face. The story really revolves around Aaron and his journey. Yes, there’s a potential love interest, but it’s realistic and not the overall point of the book.
The plot moves along wonderfully, and there’s some great actio ...more
The whole journey was a bit so-so. Not that exciting but there's a sense of intrigue. I don't know, perhaps I wanted to see what would happen to the Morning Star ...(I mean, c'mon, we all want an insight on the ultimate villain's head...) the writing is consistent and I could really see where things were going..although sometime ...more
The thought of fallen angels, Nephilim and among other things including angels an ...more
Asi ve Leviathan'ı okuduktan sonra kitabı sekiz ay kitaplığımda beklettiğim için suçluluk ve pişmanlık duydum. Çünkü çok güzeldi! Favori melek kurgularımın arasına ve o listenin de başlarına girmeyi başardı.
Asıl fantazya yaratıklarından çok yan türlerini seven bir okurum ben. Vampirlerden çok upirleri, düşmüş meleklerden çok nefilimleri seviyorum. Asi ve Leviathan' ...more
When it does Aaron starts to discover strange things are happening to him, he seems to have developed some abilities that shouldn't even be possible...
This is the first two b ...more
Just finished book 1:1 and I'm not too jazzed to continue reading 1:2, but the ending was promising and that little candle of hope kindled.
The one thing I despise most, is when there is a leading character and they are vehemently against accepting their fate, even when they have proof that it is in fact their fate, they still choose not to acknowledge what it is they have to do or become. Aaaaahhhhhhhh!
Depois de ensinar as coisas que não deviam aos humanos, e vice versa. Alguns anjos aprenderam a amar e a procriar, nascendo o que lhe chamaram de Nephelim.
No entanto as Protestades não permitem que estes vivam, símbolo do pecada e uma ofensa a Deus, estes anjos matam sem piedade todos nephelins que nasçam mesmo antes de estas saberem porquê.
Quando Aaron realiza os seus 18 anos, as ...more

Wow... I just realized that I never gave this book a review! There's not really much to say. I've already read the sequel and everything sort of comes together in that one, but this was a great set-up novel for the big fight at the end. The writing style is a little strange, but after a while y ...more
