Overview

At the end of the 21st century, the future of humanity hangs in the balance, caught between the radioactive waste of a half century of nuclear wars and the repressive authority of the Republic. Angels sacrifice their wings to join a secret fraternity of freedom fighters, risking classification as mutants and consignment to the Republic's slave dens. Each warrior is a volunteer, but no angel anticipates the full cost of his fall.

Overview

At the end of the 21st century, the future of humanity hangs in the balance, caught between the radioactive waste of a half century of nuclear wars and the repressive authority of the Republic. Angels sacrifice their wings to join a secret fraternity of freedom fighters, risking classification as mutants and consignment to the Republic's slave dens. Each warrior is a volunteer, but no angel anticipates the full cost of his fall.

The eyes of the Republic are everywhere.

Having sacrificed his wings in a bid to save humanity, fallen angel Armand has a bold plan to assassinate presidential candidate Maximilian Blackstone. When things go awry and his partner is gravely injured, Armand fears he will fail and forever lose the chance to rejoin the angels in heaven.

Theodora is a wraith, a woman who officially doesn't exist. She lives in the shadows, taking risks to earn bounties-bounties that buy new life for those she loves. Captured when her latest hit goes horribly wrong, Theodora finds herself the prisoner of a strong, arrogant stranger.

Soon enough, Theodora and Armand find their missions-and their hearts-entwined. But in their desperate attempt to save the world, will they be able to save each other?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This threadbare dystopian sequel to 2008's Fallen and 2009's Guardian never approaches the heights attained by Delacroix's better-known historical romances (The Snow-White Bride, etc.). Armand and Baruch are a pair of fallen angels determined to assassinate an evil politician and thus inspire beneficent angelic intervention in human affairs. Unknown to them, the mercenary and astoundingly hypersexual assassin Theodora is planning a hit on the Oracle--Delilah from Guardian--at the same event. Both marks escape, Baruch falls into the hands of the Institute (affiliated, naturally, with the Society and the Republic), and Armand and Theodora are left to figure out how to accomplish their goals and make a clean getaway. Delacroix is no world-builder, slapping together half-baked prognostications with tired paranormal tropes. The feeble speculative elements will annoy SF fans, the superficial use of religious themes will annoy believers, and there's more romance and character development in your average obituary. (Sept.)

    Excellent Paranormal Read

    Claire Delacroix' Rebel is a powerfully original jaunt into a future world. and for its principle characters, it's a case of 'back-to' an Earthly realm, instead of off to some fantasy realm.

    The physical realm has little appeal (or none) to Armaros/Armand, one-time angel. Deceit landed him in this realm of dirt, but we see that from the first, he holds himself to a golden standard. He will not stoop to sin, even to get rid of evil. His companions are an odd lot, the also-just-recently-mortal Baruch, and the suspiciously confident (and bossy) Tupperman.

    'Armand' is rightly suspicious of his companions' personal agendas (to say nothing of their modus operandi), but nevertheless, immortally - a return to the celestial - depends on fulfilling his mission. He is motivated. and we are intrigued. Rebel kicks into action right from the first line, and with a unique set of circumstances, too.

    In order to save the world, they must prevent the ascension of a new, and horrible, president. Their Mission: Kill Maximilian Blackstone. But isn't it a sin to kill? We are confronted with Armand's conundrum at once. Later, we start to wonder. It's unclear if there is anything in this despicable radiation-infested world worth rescuing. As we - through Armand - become more involved in the odd political struggles of New Gotham, we gain a picture of the widely different groups. The abrupt introduction of Theodora the wraith, shocks Armand. At first, she seems to envelope evil, as she plots to kill. well. can't give that away! Then we discover the sub-human that make up some part of the populace; the poor Shades. Even the 'police' are far from what we would consider 'normal.' At times the odd characters don't know quite what to believe - so readers feel rather the same way!

    Throughout, Delacroix uses references like New Gotham, fallen angels, and wraiths, to say nothing of some medieval type settings, which evoke emotional responses on the part of the reader. No one could miss the Gotham/New York/Batman hint. but it is just that, a hint. Symbols and references to old mythologies bring a subtle depth (sometimes in a conflicting way) to this tale. When the trumpets sound and the angels splash down from heaven - is it the worst thing possible, or the best? Lucifer has his theories. but we may not, (by then) agree.

    Delacroix deserves congratulations for the extreme originality, both of setting and in her characters in Rebel. I have to confess the plot seemed a little convoluted, but you never for a moment consider not reading further. Rebel weirdly captures an almost-religious fantasy and makes believable even stranger superstitions. These mix with compelling characters to create the unusual.

    I would call this a 'must read' just for its originality alone.

    I Also Recommend:

    The final installment of Ms. Delacroix's trilogy is an amazing finish. Just remember "The Eyes of the Republic are Everywhere".

    Angels have voluntarily surrendered their wings to live as humans and to help earth regain some sanity and humanity after leaders of the Republic have insidiously removed it by creating a sub-human labor force and in this the 3rd and final episode is the story of the fallen angel now known as Armand and the wraith Theodora whom we have met in the earlier novels. They will take it upon themselves to destroy the status quo and hopefully bring about a new beginning for the entire human race.

    Those of us familiar with the previous works of Ms. Delacroix will not surprised by the amazing storytelling ability she has and she outshines even herself in this horrific look at a post apocalyptic USA now known as The Republic. Her plot is unique in this time of many such popular novels and I love how she intertwines the regular dialogue with snippets from supposed news articles and other publications to give her audience a better and fuller look at the world she's created. With her direly descriptive dialogue and horrific glimpses of what the world has become, her readers will be able to picture every frightening experience her characters live and some don't live through. Her characters are all amazing and clearly thought out and portrayed from the smallest part to the main protagonists and finally to the vilest villain, where she gives us a peek at the ultimate of evil doers, Lucifer, and I like the fact that we catch up with the lives of the characters of the previous novels in the series. Her hero Armand and heroine Theodora are exquisite examples of her vivid and brilliantly creative mind as they will literally jump off the pages and into her reader's hearts as they torturously find their way to each other and out of harms way. Her romance is full of heat and innocence in equal parts and her love scenes are descriptive and physical and yet tender and endearing.

    So if you like me love that romantic suspense with an urban fantasy twist, this is definitely the one you should choose as you won't find anywhere out there more vivid imagination that this series will give you. And finally you will love the exceptional climatic ending that will bring tears to your eyes and make you believe in the power of the divine. So I urge you to take a chance if you've never read her, and I know once you do you like me will become a fan for life.
    This volume stands well alone, but I suggest to get all the history and events from the series read Fallen and Guardian also.
    Also check out her other works in her alter ego Deborah Cooke as well as the many works as Claire Delacroix.
    Claire kudos to you for one of the best in this genre that I have ever read!!

    a great tale

    In 2100 Armand is a fallen angel who knows what he must do to regain his wings that he sacrificed to save mankind. To rejoin the exclusive club, Armand and his fallen angel partner Baruch must assassinate Maximilian Blackstone, who is running for president of the Republic. Nothing goes right and Baruch is severely hurt.

    If the credit is right Theodora the wraith will kill. However, though her clients assume she is a hedonist seeking blood stained credit while ignoring the fact they hire her to do their dirty work; she has a secret motive to provide for her loved ones that if revealed would make her vulnerable to nasty sorts; so she hides from everyone while doing the kills others prefer not to do. As the government's eyes are everywhere, Armand and Theodora team up. They soon begin to understand what is divine and what is human.

    The third futuristic angelic post-apocalyptic thriller (see Fallen and Guardian) is a great tale due to the pairing of the fallen angel who gave up everything to save humanity but wants a second chance at heavenly redemption and a hit woman wraith with a hidden altruistic agenda. Both sacrificed a lot for others, but their call for duty brings them together as The Republic is at a crossroad with the pending election as are Armand and Theodora.
