As Heaven divides and Hell arises, angelic hearts will be broken . . . Devoted to one another, Adryel and Ramael must each choose a side in the brewing war over the creation of humanity: God desires to breathe life into his new creation, but Lucifer is intent upon sabotage. Ramael faithfully serves as second in command of the Army of Heaven; his loyalty never waivers. Adryel-swayed by Lucifer's arguments-casts her lot in with the rebelling archangel. Leaving Ramael and all else she holds dear, Adryel wages war with Lucifer and refuses to renounce him. Finding herself exiled to Hell, she furthers her efforts in support of the cause by tempting the newly created humans to embrace Lucifer's persuasion. Despite the battle lines, Adryel yearns to tell Ramael she loves him still. But how could he ever return her love when she has done more to thwart God's plans than all the other fallen angels combined?

I reccomned this to anyone. You won’t be disappointed. I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

David Burnett writes beautifully the story of creation and the mythical battle between Heaven and Hell. The characters are strong, emotional and as a Christian I was overwhelmed with the author's take on the Christian creation myth. The story of Adryel and Ramael is intriguing, emotional, inspiring and I look forward to discover David Burnett's other books. I highly recommend this book to everyone since it makes you feel the heart of a beautiful inspiring story.

Despite being different to David’s previous books, he didn’t disappoint. First of all you are instantly pulled in from the very beginning with an action packed plot. It’s a very different take on a ‘tale as old as time’ and I really enjoyed that. I loved how well written the book is. You really get to know the characters and join them on their journey of love and deceit. In conclusion, David has done an absolutely fantastic job with this book. Not many authors are able to write multiple books with different genres.

The devil always disguise but he will never win This book is unusual from Mr. Burnett's typical book that I read. It is a unique read. Though I am not religious, this book gives me more knowledge from the book of Genesis and the beginning. It is a very interesting read. The devil always disguise but he will never win. Adryel is such a beautiful angel but she outcast the power of Lucifer. It is a constant battler in real life to choose good from evil. We always picked the good but sometimes we got lost in choosing the evil. Temptation is so hard to resist. I loved reading this book. It gives me views what the "pit" is all about. It is scary to get there in the other life. We have to choose the right path to avoid going to the big pit. This book is fun to read. If you like to read religion and fantasy then Between Heaven And Hell is one amazing book to read.

The story began with a colorful array of descriptive text that could easily be imagined. A meeting of the council of archangels, the hosts of Heaven, had been arranged to discuss a proposed new plan from Adonai, their leader. Adonai's plan - 'The Plan of Creation' was for the creation of 'humans' who would live on 'earth', but unlike the archangels the 'humans' would be given the choice of choosing between good and evil without knowing the difference. Lord Lucifer was strongly against this as he believed this would create an unruly, dangerous world, causing chaos and potential danger to the heavenly world. A debate in the palace square had been arranged for everyone by Lord Lucifer and his team to take place before he sat with the coucil of archangels again to finally decide on Adonai's plan, knowing they would go ahead and approve it. Yet the debate did not go to plan, or did it? Rocks were thrown, chaos begins and war starts! Ramael, second in command in the army of Heaven, and Adryel, a secretary of the council, are paired and very much in love, yet they potentially see themselves on different sides of the debate due to loyalty. Adryel understands Lord Lucifer's logic but does not agree with his methods and finds herself at his side trying to persuade him to use peaceful alternatives, she also has some nagging doubts in her mind on his ulterior motives. Little does she know that she is simply a pawn in his sly and calculated game for power. An evil lie is told which changes Adryel's life and believes the rules have changed, seeing herself and Lord Lucifer's team banished to the burning pit of hell. What will happen with the humans? Who will win the war? Will Ramael and Adryel's love now end? I was intrigued to read this story as it pulled away from the author's usual writing although it still had the underlying story of love and the walls they needed to climb to overcome the obstables in front of them. The authors writing ability shone through as it always does and I found myself pulled into the story and the connecting to the characters. A thoroughly interesting and enjoyable read from the author. I had a huge smile on my face when I was reading the ending and found myself pondering on the lesson it taught.

Since childhood, I have always known the story that Lucifer was cast from heaven into hell being labeled as a fallen angel. In my childhood story, there isn't much detail as to what happens and why. This was a great telling of the story of the fallen angels and the story of creation. The main character is a female power which is like a warrior. You will follow her as she chooses to follow Lucifer and witness all the decisions she makes from that point forward. If you enjoy stories of myth or fantasy you will enjoy this book. No Christianity needed. I give this book 4 and a half stars. It was refreshing for me, considering the books I have been reading lately. It's uniqueness kept me intrigued. Even if I knew nothing of this story I would have still enjoyed it. Love, betrayal, and forgiveness. I received this book free in return for an honest review.

Wow. What an emotion evoking read! I am not a religious person – I don’t know the Bible. I consider myself a Spiritual person and really do not know the story of Lucifer falling from Heaven short of what I learn through the show Supernatural and then asking hubby (who was born and raised in a very religious family.) It was interesting to read the author’s story on how Lucifer was expelled from Heaven. I mean, the overall “Lucifer is evil” is well known, but the author gave it a detailed story for the reason. I found myself getting quite emotional – mostly irritated and angry – with many of the events that occurred with the lying and the back stabbing and down right evil of it all. I did find it confusing and sort of “jumbled” at times (the actual writing/reading of the story) but overall, I could picture everything happening in my head and felt the emotions of the word. It is a book that I enjoyed and if you are open minded to the story, you will enjoy it as well!

In the beginning I was a bit confused but once I caught on-- What an interesting read about what could have happened in heaven before the earth and all it's inhabitants were created. It is the story of Lucifer and how he fell from grace taking many angels with him---using logic, persuasion and lies. There is an interesting take on the Adam and Eve story as well. The love story between two of the angels is one for the ages. David Burnett is definitely one of my favorite authors-there hasn't been a book of his I haven't ultimately enjoyed.

I am a huge fan of this author, but I have to say this book is totally different from anything I've read by him in the past. The description fascinated me, so I decided to take a chance on it, and I'm glad I did. Although it starts out a bit slow for my taste, once the action starts it just keeps going and going. We get a very interesting take on Heaven, Creation, Hell, angels, etc. Adryel is a young angel who, during Lucifer's rebellion, finds herself caught in the middle...and when she believes her mate, Ramael, has died, she casts her lot firmly with Lucifer and has to pay the price. When she discovers Ramael is still alive, will she be able to make amends and to get back to him? While I have trouble, as a Christian, accepting some of the concepts the author chooses to embrace with the angels and Heaven (it all seemed too human and Earthly to me), I was able to put that aside and enjoy the story merely as a wonderful work of fantasy. The characters are very well developed, their relationships are complex and emotional, and the plot is action packed. If you are a fan of this author and/or good fantasy stories, I would highly recommend adding this book to your reading list. **I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book which was provided by the author.

I am a huge fan of David Burnett so when this book was offered to me I could not wait to read it. In true Burnett style I was pulled right in from the very beginning and could not wait to keep reading. Between Heaven and Hell is a different type of story than I usually read and is different from the other books of David Burnett’s that I have read. Adryel is an angel rebelling against God’s creation. When faced with the choice of believing that creation is a good thing or following Lucifer’s path Adryel chooses Lucifer. I found it interesting how she talked herself into believe what Lucifer was telling his followers. I could feel the deceit, I wanted to tell her not to believe, yet… she had to. She had to do what she felt was right. When Adryel was on Earth, seeing the world for the first time, meeting humans, seeing animals, and tasting the fruits I could feel her amazement at all the God had created. I imagined what I would have felt had I been in her place. The awe, the wonder, and the not knowing all of what she was seeing was perfectly portrayed. David Burnett wrote an eye opening, thought provoking story. The ending was my most favorite.

When Adonis proposes the creation of a human, the Council of Archangels convene to discuss the proposal. Even though Lucifer gives valid concerns, the rest of the council seem nonplussed. Adryel isn’t an angel, but only a power, and a professor at the Angelic College alongside Lucifer. Ramael, Adryel’s pair, is Archangel Michael’s second in command. Being caught in the middle, Adryel is torn, as she shares Lucifer’s concerns, and his influence and deceit eventually lead her down a path of no return. This was a very entertaining, imaginative version of the fall of Lucifer and the creation of mankind. I thought it was very creative that Adryel’s actions and thoughts mirrored that of mankind. As usual, Mr. Burnett weaves a tale of love and deceit that will keep you turning the pages.
