Originally published at Book Lovers Inc.

What goes around, comes around. Not exactly profound, but there is definitely a sense that everything, good and bad, from The Fallen Queen and The Midnight Court comes back around in The Armies of Heaven.

The chickens all come home to roost. Chickens and angels both have feathers, right?

The House of Arkhangel’sk is the heavenly reflection of the House of Romanov. And both were manipulated by the Snow Queen, Aeval, because she didn’t get what she wanted when

THE ARMIES OF HEAVEN is the third installment in Jane Kindred’s The House of Arkhangel’sk series. I cannot stress how highly I recommend you read this particular series in order as the character and world building are intricately detailed throughout the books, layering jeweled information, bitter rivalries and political infighting between the demons, angels and arkangels of Heaven. There is betrayal between friends and family; the powerful and the elite; the slave and master. To which

Anazakia has accepted the role that's been thrust on her as the "Fallen Queen" and now seeks the throne of Heaven. However, she is not the only one vying for power, and the people of Heaven are split amongst the various factions. In order to restore the House of Arkhangel'sk, Anazakia must make bitter decisions as a queen leading her forces into battle.

I really enjoyed watching Anazakia grow over the course of the series. Initially a sheltered princess blind to the growing dissent of th

I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The Armies of Heaven is the third book in the House of Arkhangel'sk series. I had not read the other two books previously and though I think it would have clarified some things in the story, I didn't have any problems following the plot and getting acquainted with the characters.

There is war in the heavens. Murder, manipulation and betrayal nearly obliterated the ruling family and only now is the true heir to the throne, Anazaki

Jane Kindred has written a wonderful novel that completes the trilogy of The House of Arkhangel'sk. The characters are compelling and complex. Each of them gives a different prospective of the power struggle for the throne of heaven. Anazakia makes many sacrifices to follow her destiny. Heartbreak and danger surround her as she leads her troops into battle. She is conflicted between duty to her people and her role as a mother. She has endured much suffering and loss. Her family is gone and her d ...more

I can't praise this book enough. It comes as the end of a trilogy, and I highly suggest reading them all. I've rarely delved to the fantasy genre, but I love fiction. I found the characters to be remarkably developed and pushed throughout the series. The book showcases good vs evil, and through true to life twists in perspective the black and white notions break down and challenge the reader to question their own feelings. Revolution is portrayed like the violent chaos it is without losing the r ...more

For a full review, see:

The beginning of the book seemed a bit slow to me, but the pacing picked up, and I read the last two thirds of the book in one sitting, frantic to see how the story would be resolved. There are so many things about this series that make me happy, and this book did not disappoint. I love the way that Jane Kindred intersperses her writing with Russian phrases, especially when describing Belphagor’s relationships with his various submis

I absolutely LOVE this series!

Each book had a satisfying conclusion even though the greater arch was yet to be resolved.

And something that many fantasy writers miss, but Jane does exceptionally well... when something fantastic has to happen to save the day, you truly believe that it IS a fantastic thing, not an easy thing that they could have done all alone.

Read it. You'll see what I mean.

Er... read the first two first!

This book kept my attention the entire time. It is about a war among the angels and demons. It was extremely well written. The characters were easy to follow and they all seemed to have a purpose in the story. Defiantly recommended!

A fitting ending to a heavenly series I would never have imagined capturing my interest. I was happy to see the.relationship between Beli, Hazily, Nenny, and Kae became a lasting one.

Jane Kindred is the author of epic fantasy series The House of Arkhangel’sk, Demons of Elysium, and Looking Glass Gods. She spent her formative years ruining her eyes reading romance novels in the Tucson sun and watching Star Trek marathons in the dark.
