The Fallen and Leviathan
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
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
I really struggled with reading this book. It was boring. And the final battle against Leviathan was the most boring. I skimmed it.
I've been on this since basically the beginning of January and even though I don't do supernatural type books and this did end up sounding pretty good, I feel now that I have to force myself to read this, I wasn't getting into it much, and it got a bit weird for me when I got into a little into Leviathan and had to quit at chapter 3.
Also it just got too slow, too confusing, and just kept getting into a reading slump and I hate not finishing a book. But I want to get to other books and th ...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
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
To enjoy this book you need to have a reasonable working knowledge of Christianity else half the terms aren't going to make a lot of sense to you.
The Fallen isn't at all a bad series however it is difficult to read, the POV jumps around frequently and can be difficult to remember who's point of view you're reading, and you're going to miss points about both the characters and the terms if you don't already know you Christianity, but it does have an interesting story line and is far fro ...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

I wanted to read these books because I enjoyed the tv miniseries Fallen where I first discovered Paul Wesley of Vampire Diaries fame. I'm not ashamed to say that I struggled through reading this book. It took me about two years! This is just the first combination of two books. The series has four. You would think that a series about angels and demons would have a lot of action but I didn't find this to be true. It was slow. It was wordy and too descriptive of surrounding ...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!
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
