Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Book two of the "The Fallen" series, this novel uses Christian themes of good and evil as the loose basis for a supernatural adventure set in today's world. Eighteen-year-old Aaron Corbet was raised by humans, but has recently discovered that he is a Nephilim, the offspring of a fallen angel and a human. Aaron tries to evade the pursuing heavenly Powers, who have killed his foster parents and stolen his little brother Stevie, and who want to destroy him as well. He is drawn north to a small town in Maine, where his companion, an angel named Camael disappears, and the townspeople begin acting strangely. Ultimately, Aaron learns more about the clash between the powers of Heaven, and must battle the ancient monster Leviathan. Sniegoski's tale is exciting and often entertaining; the comedy stems in large part from Aaron's mental conversations with his dog Gabriel, who is an insatiably hungry golden retriever with the gift of ESP. Although it has Biblical themes as its basis, the novel is not, strictly speaking, Christian (for example, the angels of Heaven are often deeply flawed and power-hungry), and parents who prefer that their children read only Christian books might want to steer clear. 2003, Simon Pulse/Simon & Schuster, Ages 14 to 18.
—Julie Govan
School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-In The Fallen (Pulse, 2003), 18-year-old Aaron Corbet learned that he was a Nephilim (the son of a mortal woman and a fallen angel); lost his foster family in a battle with fallen angels; brought his dog, Gabriel, back from death; and gained the power to understand animal speech. Here, Aaron; his angelic traveling companion, Camael; and Gabriel encounter a vicious Orisha, a goblinlike creature that bites Gabriel, forcing Aaron to find the vet in the small Maine town to which they have been drawn. Katie McGovern, the new vet, has also been strangely drawn there by the mysterious disappearance of her fianc , and she and Aaron quickly unite to investigate the strange goings-on in Blithe. It doesn't take long for them to discover that the townspeople are being controlled by a horrible beast living underground. Confronting Leviathan forces Aaron to recognize, accept, use, and refine his angelic powers. Although the story revolves around angels, heavenly messengers, and otherworldly creatures, it has no clear religious message. The real emphasis is on guts, gore, and bodily fluids of all types. The plot reads like a grade-B horror movie with as many nauseating descriptions as possible and dialogue reminiscent of the comics the author has written. This addition to the series stands on its own, with enough background from book one included to introduce the characters. There is also plenty of foreshadowing of later developments along with hints about the sequel. It's not great literature, but fans of the first installment might want it.-Susan L.

    Fantabulous!

    I literally just finished this, and I happily devoured every word! Fantastic series that was cast to the side along with hundreds of other books with similar ideas, when it should have been read worldwide! Wonderful plot, nothing seems tacky or boring or poorly researched. Will definitely read again! I hardly put it down, read it in 2 days... Amazing!
    P.S. Just 1 problem... the next book in this series, Aerie, is not a NOOKbook on B&N... I want to read the next book, but I have an ereader and would like it if I could purchase it on my ereader... Anyone else having this problem?

    Hard to find good sequels, but the Leviathan clearly is!

    This story gives much more inside on Aaron¿s angelic destiny. We (the readers) watch him grow and develop as he learns to control his angelic nature. With Gabe, the magically enhanced Labrador retriever, and Camael, former leader of the Powers, Aaron sets out on a search to save his autistic foster brother Stevie who¿s been captured by Verchiel, cruel leader of the powers. On the way he encounters an evil as ancient as the world itself including the Archangel Gabriel who also believes Aaron is the Nephilim of the prophesy that says that he will reunite the fallen with God. In the Leviathan, we learn a little more about the structure of the story as well as receive a foreshadowing of the events to come in the next book, Aerie. Just like in the first books, the descriptions are so real that if one allows oneself to, he or she can really feel the pain and anguish of the characters. This makes the book very powerful. I recommend the enter series to everyone who likes a good fantasy, and anyone who¿s read the first book must read this one. My suggestion: keep an eye out for the prisoner from the Serbian monetary. There¿s something about him¿
