Overview

At the dawn of time, two ancient adversaries battled for control of Earth. One man rose to stand at humanity's side. A soldier whose name we still remember today...

Mikhail awakens, mortally wounded, in his crashed ship. The gold-eyed young woman who saves his life has abilities which seem familiar, but with no memory of his past, he can't remember why! With his ship destroyed and a shattered wing, he has no choice but to integrate into her village, a task made difficult by her jilted lover.

Ninsianna's people have prophecies of a winged champion, a Sword of the Gods who will raise armies from the dust and defend her people against an Evil One. Mikhail insists he is no demi-god, but her dark premonitions and his uncanny ability to kill say otherwise. Even without the technology destroyed along with his ship, the sword he carries is a weapon of mass destruction to a people who still throw sticks and stones. When young women start disappearing, Mikhail must organize her people to fight back against an enemy who remains unseen.

Evil whispers to a sullen Prince. A dying species seeks to avoid extinction. Two emperors, entrenched in their ancient ideologies, cannot see the larger threat. As intrigues roil the heavens, a tiny Mesopotamian village becomes ground-zero for this fantasy fiction retelling of mankind's most epic story about the battle between good and evil … the clash of empires and ideologies … and the greatest superhero to ever walk the Earth. The Archangel Mikhail.

Meet the Author

Anna Erishkigal is an attorney who writes fantasy fiction under a pen-name so her colleagues don't question whether her legal pleadings are fantasy fiction as well. Much of law, it turns out, -is- fantasy fiction. Lawyers just prefer to call it 'zealously representing your client.' . Seeing the dark underbelly of life makes for some interesting fictional characters. The kind you either want to incarcerate, or run home and write about. In fiction, you can fudge facts without worrying too much about the truth. In legal pleadings, if your client lies to you, you look stupid in front of the judge. . At least in fiction, if a character becomes troublesome, you can always kill them off.

Started off a little confusing but clears up quick. Loved that there were so many characters. Great story line. Looking forward to the next piece of the story. Long. Over1300 pages. Worth it. Long not full of useless story line like most long novels. Story skips along at a great pace.

This was a new author for me. I enjoyed this book enough that I decided to follow the entire series and ordered the Prince of Tyre too. Now I anxiously await the release of Agents of Ki (book 3).

A 580 page free book of a amnesaic Seriphim Angelic being crash-landed on a seed-root planet while on black ops for his Air Force, and the tribal apprentice healer woman who saves him with the help of She-Who-Is. A very well-written story with a mix of paranormal, Book of Enoch, science fiction, and everyday survival. Danger, angst, the mystical, drama, romance, rough language, and sexual overtones ie. Breeding, birth, mating. An excerpt for the next in series also included. The cover art does not do the story justice; he is an Angelic and her head rests on his heart when they embrace.

I was hesitant to start such a long book, but it is well worth the time. It' s a wonderful mix of angels/demons meet sci-fi. I couldn'tput it down. I will be continuing the series.
