The sequel to the popular The Fall of Lucifer (Book One in the Chronicles of Brothers Fiction Series). The Brothers' trilogy traces three archangel brothers, Michael, Gabriel, and Lucifer, and their harrowing journey from the flawless world of the palace chambers in the first heaven through Lucifer's banishment with his fallen host to Perdition. The brothers' comradeship is shattered.
Lucifer and his fallen horde swiftly enforce their claim to the generation of the race of men, past, present, and future, guaranteeing their demise in the lake of fire with the fallen, at the Great White Judgement in eons to come.
Only one can put a stop to Lucifer's demonic malevolent plans, Lucifer's arch adversary, the Nazarene.

This is a beautifully written book! I love the descriptions of all the characters and settings. I also feel that the amount of characters added to the richness and depth of the story, which I find lacking in a lot of books today.
In most books there's the protagonist, antagonist, easily forgotten victims, and filler characters not essential to the story. EVERY character in this book is memorable and essential. I enjoyed reading it!
1) Wendy loves to spend pages and pages describing her characters and locations. Clearly she had her jumbo sized thesaurus sitting next to her when she was writing it. And I understand that Heaven, hell, and Angels deserve big coverage. But she goes on and on wasting ink on long descriptions of minute details. I found myself jumping ahead several paragraphs at a time to get back to the story. The book clocks in at over around 420 pages, but I'll bet at least 50 pages of repetative, wordy, descriptions could have been cut out without affecting the story at all.
2) The writing isn't that great. Even with the thesaurus in hand, some of the descriptions of the Angels and demons are laughable and juvenile. At one point she even has a demon jump on a broomstick to fly out of hell! I laughed out loud at that one. The names of the demons are hard to keep straight because they are pretty unusual and many of them are similar. The human characters aren't really interesting. I literally put a post-it note on the list of characters at the front of the book just so I could keep flipping to it to remember who was who.
The story idea was pretty good and it does continue the saga of Michael, Gabriel, and Lucifer. Like I said at the beginning, I was really excited to get this book so maybe the problem was my high expectations. Obviously this book is setting the stage for additional books in the series and so I will checkout the next one to see if it is any better. If you have interest in the series of books, then buy the paperback or try and get it from the library. But, be sure to keep your expectations in check.
As a side note, if you liked The Fall of Lucifer (TFL) like I did, another good book is Demon by Tosca Lee. I enjoyed that one better than TFL.
