I started this series thinking that it would be a simple read to distract me for a short time before moving on to something of more stimulating value. Torn between whether this series would be silly and filled with teenage angst, hoping that if it was it would not be to the depth for which Twilight saga force fed to an almost nauseating extent, or if it would just be a great waste of time. I was proven wrong on both accounts. This series deals with Aaron Corbet a child of the system, tossed around between foster families until he is sheltered by a family that truly cares for him and raises him as their own. Aaron struggles to overcome his past, making plans towards graduation and searching for the right college while working for a veterinarian and helping in the care of his autistic half brother Stevie. His life takes another turn when he turns 18 and the Angelic side of his nature begins to manifest. Aaron discovers that he is a Nephilim, the child of a human woman and a Fallen Angel. As he struggles with his emerging abilities he also learns that he is the prophesied one that will bridge God's forgiveness and allow the Fallen to return Home. With his dog Gabriel, Aaron relives the Fall and struggles to find a way to right the wrongs of the fathers. I was impressed with the depth that the characters have and the skill with which they were brought to life on the page. Although there are many books that tell the story of the Fallen and Lucifer's role, this series takes a fresh look at the tale. Hell is not a place, it is not a burning pit of misery, it is the sorrow and pain that was caused from the war in Heaven, it is the confusion and hurt that was felt during the Great War. Aaron teaches us that redemption is possible.

All in all I thought it was a pretty good book. It provided an interesting twist to the whole Angels and Demons, Heaven and Hell theme. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the fact that it seems to move really slow in some spots and the storyline could have been better developed. It seemed to just jump into certain things which made it seem awkward and corny. That being said, The Fallen 2 did a much better job developing the characters, building the world around them, making it easier for you to be drawn in. I found myself laughing at Lahash, morning the loss of comrades and rejoycing as the angels are welcomed home.

The Fallen: Aerie and Reckoning by Thomas E. Sniegoski, is about an 18 year old boy and his new life full of fallen angels and nephilems. This book is full of fire wilding action and the romance between Aaron and Vilma. Aaron Corbet is back, with his companions Calam and Gabriel in their search for Aaron’s 7 year old autistic brother, Stevie, and the hidden community of Aerie. A safe haven for the fallen angels hiding on earth from the powers, a group of angels that hunt fallen angels. The point of view is in third-person-omniscient. This allows the reader to see into the minds of all the characters. This book contains a large number of characters, from Aaron’s magikly altered dog to his mentor Calam, even Lucifer himself is a character. After traveling the east cost of the U.S. Aaron and his companions stumble across the hidden community of Aerie. Aaron is now finally able to learn from the fallen angels how to properly use and control his powers. I love how the author uses the point of view to show all the emotions in the characters. Also you can see both sides of the view of the nephilem. The setting and characters were both well developed. I could actually visualize the characters in the battle sense in the gym of the high school and in home of the Malakim. The protagonist on the other hand I thought wasn’t as well developed. The only time he is given a physical description is in the beginning of the first book and that isn’t even a very good description. Despite the lack of a physical description the protagonist is a well put together character. This book reminds me a lot about the maximum ride series by James Patterson. It tells a story about teenagers with wings that are experimented on and hunted. Also like fallen it is a mulity book series. The theme of this book I fighting for the ones you love. Throughout the book you see Aaron constantly fighting and saving the people he loves and cares about. “We’re going to look for an angel- a Malakim they’re called- and I think he might be able to help you.” This is what Aaron said to Vilma, his girlfriend, before they left in search for the Malakim, Raphael. I give this book 4.5 stares out of 5 for the well-developed characters that Sniegoski brought to life, but with the lack of physical disruption and large amount of death of major characters is what keeps it from getting a full 5 stares. I recommend this book for teens and young adults, for it graphic descriptions and minor use of fuel language.
