In the reimagining of heaven and earth, Vashti Quiroz-Vega has created a vast and rich story with characters that leap off the pages. Taking names of angels we know from the Bible she has brought them brilliantly to life. Rebelling against God, Lilith seeks to cause discord amongst her fellow angels, in order to rise above her creator. Not to go into too much detail, but the motives, actions, and fallout are well mapped out and give the story believability. 

 With a unique twist on the fall to Ea

"In The Fall of Lilith, Vashti Quiroz-Vega crafts an irresistible new take on heaven and hell that boldly lays bare the passionate and conflicted natures of God’s first creations: the resplendent celestial beings known as angels." This one line from the book blurb gives the reader a hint of the story's direction. What the reader of that one line will not know is the richness and depth of the story and characters. Ms. Vega has taken familiar names from the story of creation in the bible and breat ...more

I don't even know where to begin. This book was so amazing. It took the story of the fallen angels to a whole new level. Initially, I had hoped it was a story of Lilith, the first wife of Adam from Hebrew lore, but I was pleasantly surprised by the story I received.
The book is long, it is actually two books in one. The first is the story of the angels in Heaven. The reader is given a glimpse into the adolescence of God's holy beings. You watch as Lilith learns of her ability to manipulate her s

I found this novel exciting to read. New ideas about Lilith and the angels abound in this tale. Refreshing and entertaining it also makes you wonder a great deal, especially if you have a religious background. Well written and the descriptions were wonderful. A book I would go back and read again after the initial rush of images and excitement. The characters come to life. Lillith makes me angry, which is the sign of a good read. I recommend this book highly.

‘The Fall Of Lilith’ by Vashti Quiroz Vega has been listed as ‘dark fantasy' but I didn’t find it dark as my focus was more on God, the omniscient, the forgiving and the kind but He doesn’t seem to show any kindness towards His “perfect” Angels and banishes them from Floraison because some of them revolted against His arbitrary and oppressive laws. The oath of celibacy and obedience are the two pledges, which the Angels have made but attraction – the natural instinct that they have been endowed ...more

The Fall of Lilith is a high fantasy that delivers the reader into the imaginative realm of Floraison, better known as Heaven. Forget what you learned in Sunday School. This version of events has nothing to do with Lilith, Adam’s first wife, from the Hebrew texts. If you love inventive fantasy, read on!

Book One is dedicated to the lives of the heavenly angels in Floraison where they live under God’s laws. They are required to adhere to the rules, with no questions asked. The young angel’s days a

I read this as part of the #ABRSC read and review.

Amazing, I absolutely loved this wonderful novel by Vashti Quiroz Vega. I rarely read long books but this kept my attention throughout both book 1 and book 2. In fact, it was such a quick read. I’d highly recommend reading The Fall of Lilith if you love high fantasy books with amazing descriptive prose, unique and highly imaginative writing and fabulous characters. The main protagonist Lilith isn’t at all keen on God’s decree that they should be

An epic-story, which will make you reconsider what you thought you knew about angels, demons, and everything in between. I have seen this book described as “epic” and I agree, not only for its length (it is two books in one) but also for its topic. It does talk about all things in Heaven and Earth, near enough, from the creation of the angels and the battle of good and evil to the fall of the angels and their revenge plans once on Earth (that don’t bode well for humanity).

I have not read much of this genre before, so pardon my naiveté. I don't even know what to call it, but it's 'angel fantasy' where Judeo-Christian theology is reworked and retold as fantasy fiction. Oddly, when I read Fall of Lilith, I had just read Kara'a Quest by Pam Funke, in the same genre, so I guess it's a thing. Anyway, it took me a little getting used to. The angels are not spirits, but recast as humans with wings and superpowers, fully flesh and rife with flaws. Clearly, the "flaws" asp ...more

The tale of Lilith takes us into the world above where angels reside in God's kingdom, then ultimately leading to the descent of many of them later on to earth as Lilith's plotting and dire need to gain power and overthrow God's ultimate power takes us on an incredible journey of desire, deceit and seduction as Lilith ensnares some of her fellow angels to join her on her rebellion to overtake God's power.

I enjoyed reading about the various characters of this book, They are angels with wings to fly, one of them has additional abilities to change into different shapes. other one can breath fire, third one can sense the presence of others at any distance from him. There are others too with special abilities including Lilith, who can influence anyone by her words and can see future. All of them are created by God Himself to live in Floraison, with strict rules.

Angels as you’ve never imagined! Quiroz-Vega spins a brilliant tale of deception from the story told by ancient biblical text. Seductive prose written with a clarity of vision describe the foibles of angels as Lilith leads her admirers to the inevitable fall from grace

In "The Fall of Lilith" by author Vashti Quiroz Vega, dark fantasy takes center stage in this reimagined version of religious work from the Bible. The names and settings may sound familiar, but that is where the similarities end as Quiroz Vega takes her readers on a wild ride through multiple worlds and settings with angels steering the ship.

The story opens up in an innocent time as angels playfully fill their days under the guidance of God. It’s not long before Quiroz Vega sets the stage for dr

The Fall of Lilith, written by Vashti Quiroz-Vega, is a fantasy story about some well-known biblical characters. Not being a religious person, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but even before I finished the story, my impression was WOW!

I also didn’t know this book contained over five hundred pages. It contains two sections. The first section is about the angel’s preparation for their service to God, but there were too many rules for Lilith and a few others. I could feel early on that there was goi

In The Fall of Lilith, Vashti Quiroz-Vega has crafted a brilliant story with characters rich in diversity and imagery so vivid the reader is transported to another place and time.

It’s impossible not to feel the tranquility and exquisite beauty of Floraison – Heaven. The descriptive detail is penetrating and offers a divine solace. We are introduced to characters that are celestial, yet relatable to mortal existence. A true testament to the superb character development.

I loved the book's cover, and I'm interested in Angelology, and so I got a copy of The Fall of Lilith.
In the beginning, it felt like I was reading a YA novel, only, instead of teenagers up to no good, they were angels. This book is the story of how Satan and Lilith and the rest of the rebel angels fell from heaven, and what happened after they fell to Earth.

The characterization was superb. That's why I gave it a 4-star. I loved the character development. And this is a politically correct book,

The Fall of Lilith is a creative telling of the biblical story of the dark angels’ fall from heaven. God created angels as sexual beings, gave them free will, and then told them sex was prohibited and would result in eternal damnation. Not a particularly wise decision from the Almighty. Lilith is a beautiful angel who is narcissistic, devious, and sexually manipulative from page one through to the end. She makes Satan seem like a nice fellow and ultimately puts all of creation at risk.

I really enjoyed this book. I love when stories put a spin on biblical/historical stories, and this one definitely kept me entertained. Lilith is a deceptive little thing, and I loved reading about her journey, though I will admit that Gadreel held most of my affection throughout the book (which would probably really anger Lilith...lol!).

The author does an incredible job in character building. Each and every one of her characters is unique and has a voice of his/her own. The author writes in th

As I read this book, I started feeling ill at ease about the theme of the book. First, this is a story about the events surrounding life amongst the angels in heaven, which the author called Floraison, before the fall of Lucifer and his cohorts, and the creation of man on Earth. Although this is a fiction, I was in doubt about the roll that Lilith played.

The book is titled, the Fall of Lilith. I wondered whether Lilith in this story was another name for Lucifer. But then she seemed to control t

I have been wanting to read this book for quite some time and it finally came up on my TBR list. The author's depiction of the fallen Angels from biblical tales is compelling on many levels. How Satan and his small band of supporters got banned to earth was believable. The burning desire Lilith had to overthrow God and make heaven the way she wanted it to be, with her and Satan as the ultimate rulers is a great example of how, in life, misplaced goals and dreams can wreak havoc. Not only havoc, ...more

The Fall of Lilith is a fantasy marvel that I wasn’t expecting to be almost guttural and feral as it was in places. Vashti shows us the creation of the heavenly realm, the angels and eventually Earth. I was very impressed with the personalities of the different angels, and how connected I became with them.

The beginning of the story has a childlike quality with the angels growing into themselves, and as they age, their personalities strengthen. Along with their changes the feeling of the words Va

“Addictive and Amazing”

From the get go I was hooked, it was a shame my workload was so great but every spare moment I had I read. The characters had depth and I found myself not having to keep checking back to know who each character was. The main character Lilith is as beautiful as she is dangerous, she set her mind on a goal and did whatever she could to gain the results she was after.

A Very Good Read!

The story and the plot from beginning to the end had my full attention. The flow of the read could have improved with words that could be understood so that I wouldn't have had to check the dictionary. I loved to hate Lilith because she never understood that what she was trying to achieve was a losing battle. You can't defeat God. The interactions of the various characters led to an entertaining read and captured my full attention to the story. The pace was well done. The ending

This is an interesting and unique take on a well-known Bible story from the old Testament. “The Fall of Lilith” follows a group of angels who rebel against the life they have in heaven, in a place called Floraison. Lilith is the driving force behind all of this as she encourages Lucifer to lead. As expected, the rebels find themselves on earth. This is my favorite part of the story and where it got interesting. I can’t say I rooted for Lilith, but there were others I was hoping things would work ...more

Lilith is the central character about the fallen angels. Ms. Vega tells of the war between the angels who betray God and those who do not under the leadership of Michael. The defeated angels fall to earth with each having their own loss of power, change in form, or actual slow death until the end of time. I loved this book and had difficulty putting it down. All in all it was wonderfully written, but I had to give it 4 stars for a few editing issues and the author does not tell what happened to ...more

Slow at first

The story is slow at first. But is necessary to the story so hang on because once the rebels get tossed to earth. This book you will not be able to put down. The description is vivid. The characters are really relatable.I feel for Gadeel and hopes she finds what she is looking for.

Vashti Quiroz-Vega is a writer of Fantasy, Horror, and Thriller. Since she was a kid she's always had a passion for writing and telling stories. It has always been easier for her to express her thoughts on paper.

She enjoys reading almost as much as she loves to write. Some of her favorite authors are Stephen King, Michael Crichton, Anne Rice, J.R.R. Tolkien, J.K. Rowling and George R. R. Martin.
