After the creation of the Earth and the birth of Man, the Presence seemingly vanished from existence. Once the angels and demons discovered that mortals possessed souls, they became locked in an endless conflict for ownership over mankind. But Gabriel, once the leader of Heaven's forces, felt humanity should be allowed to live in peace. For his transgression, he was stripped of his wings and expelled from Heaven. Now, centuries later, the wars of man have brought the world to ruin. Man's once-vaunted technology has regressed. Lance Kells, a drifting writer with no direction in his life, inadvertently stumbles upon this war and finds himself trapped in the middle of it. As Lance tries to uncover the truth, he will encounter a host of intriguing characters, from a hard-drinking, pink-haired avatar of death to an elderly Native American mystic. During his journey, Lance will discover a method of ending a conflict as old as time, as well as a disturbing secret which links him to Gabriel.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Coming across Percival Constantine's books, the cover of Fallen grabbed my attention. Its simplistic and gorgeous at the same time. It's the cover that made me open the book, but that's all a cover can do. This was not 'just a book I enjoyed' but a novel that I was impressed by because of the author's style, his ability to make words have texture, breath air into the lungs of his characters, and develop a solid plot. This author did not go for the snappy lines, he went for quality which made Fallen a moving and interesting read. But it is not just the cover and the story that held my attention but also Percival Constantine's work projects his potential to grow as a writer. Take a chance and read someone new. Take that chance on an author in a herd of authors who can break from the pack and that writer is Percival Constantine.
