Overview

He thought he'd never find heaven again . . . until he met her.

Matthew Gallow is a fallen angel, cast out of heaven for daring to disbelieve. Furious, frustrated, and empty, he roams the earth, pretending to cast out demons and preserve souls. He doesn't have faith in anything—or anyone—until the night he nearly dies fighting a true fiend. His whole world is shaken. And when he meets Natalia, he isn't sure if he can trust her...or the attraction he feels for her.

Natalia works for Cain, a rocker living on the edge, and she invites Matthew to be a part of his wild stage show. It's perfect—an exorcism for a man who says he's sold his soul to the devil. Only Cain really is in league with Lucifer, and all mankind is at risk. Matthew never before cared whether or not the world went to hell. But as his passion for Natalia grows, he'll fight to the death to rescue her from evil's grasp...and realize that love is the one thing that can save a fallen angel.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Margaret Weis (Dragonlance) and daughter Lizz's fantasy romance succeeds mostly in the fantasy department. Matthew Gallow, burned at the stake as a Christian martyr, fell from grace, returned to human form and now drinks too much and performs fake exorcisms for money. After he casts out a real demon from an adolescent girl, he becomes an overnight celebrity. Natalia Ashley, who manages rock star Cain, offers Matthew big money to "perform" nightly exorcisms while the rocker sings his hit song, "Possession." Neither realizes that Cain's possession is not metaphorical; he signed Satan's dotted line and promised to turn his fans into hell's army. Matthew, a compelling, tortured hero, is aided by an archangel with a black sense of humor, a dormouse and Natalia's grandfather Woof, a Dead-head ghost. Natalia and Matthew's romance is more explained than demonstrated in this otherwise intriguing supernatural thriller. (Nov.)

I couldn't read this book fast enough! It had a great story line and the plot started right from the start.

One of the best books I've read. I've read several of Margaret Weis' works with different co-authors and have enjoyed all of her writings. I read Warrior Angel and enjoyed it very much. Both are part of my permanent library.

I agree with "It Was OK...¿ There didn't seem to be much of a pinnacle point in the story and what little there was, wasn't climatic enough for me. I couldn't get how there could be chemistry between the main characters, when one of them had a phone permanently attached to her ear. Also, Cain felt like a focal point on almost every page. This got tiresome and I would have like to learn more about the Natalia (with out the phone to ear) and Matthew, instead of the muscian. I didn't get the grandpa ghost either. Seem to be a "Lets just throw him in..." last minute. Matthew seemed to be a week character. Not much to make him stand out, other than he could live forever and heal quickly.

I do say that I like the writing style very much, as it was well written, but the story was rather slow. I would not totally recommend this book unless you can get it at a discounted price. Yes, maybe the other books by these authors might be better...hmmmm

Fallen Angel started out well, but then as I read more and more it got boring for me. The plot was original and creative, but the real action didn't take place until well into the book. I haven't read any other books by Margaret and Lizz Weis, but I want to and hope they are better.

He was a martyr when he was burned at the stake. However Matthew Gallow devout Christian in life fell from grace in death. He was sent back to earth as a human. --- In his second reincarnation, Matthew is a drunken con artist. He makes money to pay for his alcohol as a charlatan shamming clients by performing phony exorcisms. However something goes wrong when he actually succeeds in casting out a demon from a teenager. He becomes famous with everyone wanting him. Music Manager Natalia Ashley hires Matthew to perform when her superstar Cain performs his mega hit ¿Possession¿. The money is too good to say no. However, neither the manager nor the FALLEN ANGEL knows that Cain signed another contract with Satan in exchange for fame and fortune, he will convert his fans into the devil¿s army. --- The second angelic collaboration (see WARRIOR ANGELS) from mother-daughter Weis is a terific and spellbinding character driven paranormal possession thriller. The Faustian story line is exciting, but the strong cast makes it a fun tale and not just the tormented title star. On Matthew¿s team besides Nat is an archangel who must have worked the borscht belt-burlesque circuit with deprecating gallows humor the shtick, a dormouse who must have come from Alice¿s Wonderland, and grandfather Woof the Dead-head ghost on the other ¿Faust¿ side is Satan, Cain, and their fans. The team Weis fans will enjoy this superb supernatural. --- Harriet Klausner
