A six thousand year war rages and now the demonic Fallen are coming for him—the one man shrouded in mystery. Only Validus stands in their way.
Validus is the last and least of God’s angels, but he’s seen much across the millennia since his creation. Empires have risen and fallen as angelic and demonic forces battle in a raging war that will determine humanity's fate – and the fate of his defeated brothers.
Eventually called to be an earth-bound warrior, Validus rises to a position of power and respect, commanding legions of angels through impossible battles and overwhelming odds. But when orders arrive from the Creator's most elite Messenger, he finds himself suddenly demoted to a task of apparent insignificance considering the fierce war they are waging against the demonic Fallen – the covert protection of one unbelieving man.
Validus soon finds himself on a mission that will push him beyond his abilities as he battles to protect Drew Carter, for the Fallen are coming for him. Legions of them.
As Validus races against time to discover why Drew is so important to humanity's survival, can he stand between Drew and all who would destroy him?
Rise of the Fallen by Chuck Black is the second book in the Wars of the Realm, and what a book it is! I have been waiting for what has felt like forever to read the second installment of this series and I can say that while I wish I didn't have to wait at all, it was worth it! If you haven't already started this series I suggest you do so quickly. Rise of the Fallen is a amazing read that will definitely make you think more about spiritual warfare. I loved getting to 'see' the Bible through angelic eyes. All in all this book, this series, is a must read.
5 out of 5. An angelic Afternoon Snack!
I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review.
