From the Back cover
It’s been almost two years since Philip left Hell and returned to life—this time for good.
But things have changed and so has Philip. He’s haunted by terrifying nightmares and has never felt so lonely. Lonely and angry.
Then one day the impossible happens and Philip is brought back to Hell. Not by the Devil, but by the Almighty himself.
Although the Great Devil War ended a long time ago, the battle is far from over—and the worst is yet to come.
THE GREAT DEVIL WAR is a gripping, humorous, and dark tale about good and evil seen from a different perspective, set in a world beyond your wildest dreams. Or nightmares…
My thoughts on The Fallen Angel
After the ending of the previous book, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but Phillip gets back to Hell. I was a little worried about him considering how the last book ended. If you remember, in The Angel of Evil, he was warned that he couldn’t go back and forth anymore and I knew there was going to be book six to conclude the series, so this couldn’t be his final death.
This time around, Philip is brought back to Hell by Jehova, but nobody knows why. In the first half or more of the book, we see Phillip catching up with everything that happened in hell since his last visit because, although on Earth had passed two years, time flies differently in Hell and many changes took place.
The Devil War changed everyone, including Philip, who’s now struggling to figure out who he is.
The Fallen Angel is more about Phillips’ struggles and teenager angst. It continues in the same dark tones set by the previous book in the series and Phillip is not easy to like most of the time. He’s meaner and bad-tempered in the beginning.
My favorite part of the book was the ending. The plot picks up in the last third of the book, the plot twist is fantastic and it ends with a cliffhanger. Now I must read book six.
So far, I think I gave 5-stars to all the previous books. The only reason I gave The Fallen Angel 4.5 stars was that it felt like a filler, a necessary bridge to get to book six.
It’s still a great read, and I recommend it to fantasy lovers.
