Excellent read. Beautiful. I've never read anything by M. King before but if this is any indication of her quality, I'm all in.

King creates powerful thoughts in her characters...contemplations of heaven and hell, of humanity, of damnation and forgiveness.

Prior to the casting out of rebellious angels and Lucifer, Hael and Xaphan were lovers in heaven. Hael was content being an angel while Xahpan wondered why they shouldn't be given the same benefit that God gave humans...the benefit of choice and

Teeny, tiny little story about heaven and hell, angels and demons and their 'relationship' with we 'mere mortals'. Beautifully written, the story of Hael and Xaphan is intriguing. 5 stars.

I'm just starting this book but already I can tell the writing is exceptionally good. If the plot stays strong and the storyline ultimately delivers this will be one of my all time favorite m/m romance reads!

Half way through and my favorite line is when on of the angels says "Love is not love that is not freely given, and obedience is not obedience if there is no choice."

Even though there are 'good' and 'evil' angels in this story, it is not one sided. All too often the vilian is two dimentional
Love is difficult, even for those created by the very hand of they Angel, Demon or Human!

This was the first book I read by M. King. It shall not be the last!
