Their love could save the soul of a fallen angel or damn an archangel to an eternity in hell.
The realm of angels was created as a paradise where angels could watch over the earth as mankind took his first steps. For the archangel Michael, it is the only home he has ever known and he could never envisage another life. Michael’s life changes the day his path crosses that of the favoured son of the morning. From the moment he saw him, Michael wanted Lucifer for his own. When the two angels come together the passion surprises them both.
Their love is forged in heaven, but is doomed the moment Lucifer falls from grace to become the leader of an army of demons.
Separated by war, the former lovers know the time will come when they must face each other in battle.
Their confrontation will set in motion events that neither could have foreseen. For Lucifer it is the chance to persuade Michael to stand at his side, as his partner as leader of the demons. For Michael, it is a mission to save his lover's soul, while risking his own.
Torn between his love for Lucifer and his duties as an angel, Michael walks a fine line, where one wrong step could result in his own fall from Heaven, and an eternity in hell.
This book… Where do I begin? There was so much happening in this story and it takes place over centuries! Yes, centuries. It begins before Lucifer’s fall from grace and follows him long after. It’s told entirely in Michael’s POV however.
Archangel Michael begins with admiring Lucifer’s beauty and when Lucifer realizes Michael’s love is everything to him he never lets him go. When this book started I immediately wondered how this could possibly work. The ruler of the Underworld and the leader of the Archangels? I read it with that in mind. I tried not to be surprised when choices were made and decisions were followed through. But, it’s a very emotional story.
Lucifer and Michael, I’ll admit, are smoking hot when they are together. The level of sex in this book is off the charts. But, there’s so much more to this story than the sex. The passion is scorching, the plot is layers upon layers.
While reading Falling Into Darkness the author weaves us through time and circumstance. We visit many situations, tragedies, epic love, and drastic falls. We see birth, rebirth, death, and destruction. At times this book consumed me and dragged me into the pits of Hell with Michael and Lucifer, and just as easily is had me souring into the heavens with them.
There’s no question you won’t be able to put this book down. You’ll not only want to know how this can possibly end, well, you’ll NEED to know.
This is an amazing, powerful, and gripping book!
