    I loved it!

    This story had everything I was looking for in a quick read. Full of romance, adventure, and mystery.

    I'm always intrigued by stories that feature an angel-demon dynamic and interweave Biblical beliefs. I won't lie - I have a degree in Biblical Studies so I'm a bit of a snob for when things are taken and twisted to be something else. However, those that either do it well or create their own world are the ones to be really admired.

    Demon's Fall creates it's own world; I was never certain what time period to call it, which made it all that much more interesting. The bulk of the story takes place in Hellsgate, a city of mixed mortal and demonic population just this side of Hell. Here demons and mortals co-exist. The worldbuilding was really cool; the author acknowledges the self-serving nature of both angels and demons; angels want humans to go to Heaven because it's better - demons want humans souls to commit to hell, because in both instances the angel or demon gets something. There is also a reference to a third path humans can take but it's only mentioned in passing.

    Demon's Fall does take some Biblical prophecy and craft it to its own purposes. This could be cliché; I know I've seen so many things that twist the book of Revelations that I almost squirm and fight to not roll my eyes - but the way that it was done in Demon's Fall was just really cool. It no longer seemed as if the author was twisting Christianity to fit the story, but that we were talking about something completely different - a whole other pantheon and prophecy.

    The novella is, despite my long winded assessment of the setting and prophecy of the story, a love story. A demon purchases a caged angel and proceeds to fall in love with her. The story is told from Kenan's point of view, which I thought was interesting because in the long run it was Jahel who had more to lose. My biggest problem with most romance novellas is that the actual step to falling in love rarely feels plausible. I will admit that the romance didn't 100% convince me that they were in love, and perhaps that was why - oh wait, that would be a spoiler ;D about three fourths of the way through I was liking the build of the romance, but it's that last chapter that sealed it for me and made me wanna go - aawweee.

    Demon's Fall is also an erotic novella, so yes, there is sex and it is graphic in nature - it's erotic. But despite the titillating factor it is motivated by the story, it's not just sex for the sake of having sex depicted on the page. On a purely logistical nature, it's interesting to see how one would manage wings and sex.

    Not for younger readers, or readers who are easily offended by warping traditional Christian beliefs. But if you like a short romance that is both erotic and fantastical - read it. I liked it a lot.
