Jane Kindred is a remarkable writer. The words in The Fallen Queen, book one of The House of Arkhangel'sk, flow eloquently, especially for a very descriptive epic-fantasy story. Some readers cringe at the thought of keeping up with too many details when it comes to stories with completely imaginative worlds, but Kindred spares readers excessive back story and keeps to relevant information.

The Fallen Queen is certainly risqué and stems far from the average novel. The story centers around an angel, Anazakia, and the two demons hired to hide her on earth, Belphagor and Vasily. Based on the book's summary, one would not expect the story to have such eye-brow raising acts of sexuality, but when Anazakia's story begins and progresses the nature of the story's characters becomes clear. The story's themes range from sexual relations between men to BDSM, and almost seems to fall under the erotica genre more than fantasy.

Despite the fact that readers may not agreeing with the lifestyle of the characters or most of their actions, Kindred's originality, and ability to make a complex story readable, gives her an edge.
