Great idea that doesn't lead up to my expectation.
Many have heard the ancient Biblical tale of how a third of the angels rebelled against God's commands along with Lucifer and fell to the Earth. Do you often wonder if any of those "fallen" wish they had chosen differently, if they are able to reconsider their actions?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

In the debut novel Nameless by Kyle Chais, this is the premise for the book. A fallen angel is finding himself bored with the same old routine on earth and wonders if angels can continue to fall from heaven to earth, is there anything they can do to get back into heaven again? Stuck in earth since that fateful decision thousands of years ago, a fallen by the name of Nameless wonders what it would be like to be a human.
Seeing an opportunity present itself in the form of a drunken failure of a man called Aurick Pantera, he slips into his body while sleeping to see what it's like to sleep since "fallens" don't get tired and need sleep. Soon his experiment to see what human life is like, lasts much longer than he expects, spending seven years in the body of his "host" before he realizes he has lost to ability to leave. Soon other "fallens" see what Nameless has been doing and some try to take advantage of the situation where Nameless is simply searching for a way back to his former life. Is there a way to use his situation to gain an entrance back into heaven or will he be forced to live the remainder of his years in the body of a dying man?
I received Nameless by Kyle Chais compliments of Gallery Books, a division of Simon and Schuster Publishers for my honest review. At first the storyline was interesting until the drama of being stuck in the man's body dragged out a bit too long and I think left the idea of finding a way back into heaven on the back burner. There are times in the book where other fallens want to use Nameless in an effort to see what love feels like, even if the other fallens are male, and one I didn't care for. For those reasons I rate this book a 3 out of 5 stars in my personal opinion.
