Gabriel didn't expect his return to Heaven to be filled with trumpets and celebration, but he thought he would do more than sit at Michael's side, listening to endless catalogs of unfulfilled prayers. He's tried blending into every aspect of Heavenly life, but he can't help but feel that the constantly praying Faithful and flower-dispensing Handmaidens lack the motivation to do any true good in the world. Some days, he longs for nothing more than to return to Earth and tell his beloved Cassia how he feels about her.
When Heaven is suddenly attacked, all the angels become trapped in their own nightmares. With Michael gone on an angelic mission, Gabriel must rally the remaining seraphim to rouse the sleeping angels and discover who seeks to take the agents of Heaven out of the celestial battle. All fingers point to Bedlam, but Gabriel can't believe the ex-demon would threaten his salvation so soon after gaining it.
With few people he trusts, Gabriel must rely on all the lessons he learned on Earth to save Heaven, Bedlam, and maybe even himself.

Gabriel has been called back to heaven and finds that he doesn’t fit in anymore. He has been given the role of listening to endless prayer alongside of Michael. When Michael goes to earth to help Carrie heaven is attacked. Everything looks like it is new angel Bedlam’s fault. Gabriel is in charge of figuring out what is going on, who is responsible, and how to stop this attack. Thankfully Bedlam knows what has happened to the angels and how to stop it. They just need to figure out who is behind the attack and stop it. This is a great series but one that you need to read in order. There is a lot of information that you will be missing if you don’t. This story is told through three POV: Michal, Gabriel, and Bedlam. Of course Gabriel and Bedlam have their hands full with the attack in heaven. But the book is really about Michael and Carrie. Michael hates Carrie and has always been a jerk to her. In this book we see that it is because her ability came from Lucifer. As you learn about this you start to warm up to Michael and see that he is not the jerk that he has come across as through the other two books. It is actually funny to see how this big powerful angel is more human than I thought he could be. This is a great addition to the series and a wonder fresh point of view with Michael. There are a couple things left open which make it possible to have another book in the series. This is definitely a series with checking out. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
*Book source ~ ARC. My review is voluntary and honest. After two thousand years on Earth Gabriel has returned to Heaven. And Bedlam has been turned from demon back to angel. That means he has access to Heaven after thousands of years and not many angels are happy with that fact. When Heaven is attacked while Michael is away on Earth meeting with the Oracle, everyone except Gabriel believes Bedlam is behind the attack. Not only is Bedlam not behind the attack, but he figures out what has happened and how to wake up from the nightmares that are afflicting the other angels. Now they just need to figure out who is behind the attack and why. I love coming back into the world of the Earthbound Angels! In this story there are several POVs and for the first time we get an extended look inside Michael’s head. Um, he’s a bit of a mess. Who would have thought?! Anyway, there are a lot of flashbacks and they fit into the present very well. An advantage to the flashbacks is there is a lot of expansion on characters we haven’t seen much of, so the world becomes a bit deeper and more fully rounded. Plus, there’s Bedlam - my most favorite character. I’m not exactly sure where this series is heading and I really don’t care. I’m thoroughly enjoying the journey.
