Between Heaven and Hell By David Burnett

27. October 2016 Reviews 2

One war….
Opposing sides…
It’s a recipe for heartbreak.
In a war that pits Lucifer against the Army of Heaven, it’s a recipe for disaster.

The lives of Adryel and Ramael, two young angels who are in love, are altered forever when God determines to create humans.

His decision is met with scorn from Lucifer, one of the archangels. The humans, he asserts, will cause evil and chaos throughout creation. God’s proposal, he says, is flawed. As Lucifer debates the plan’s merits with another archangel in Palace Square, their discussion turns into argument.

Argument leads to insults, rocks are thrown… and battle lines are drawn.

Ramael is second in command of the Army of Heaven. His loyalty never waivers.

Adryel casts her lot with Lucifer. Swayed by his arguments, she leaves Ramael and all else she holds dear. She wages war for Lucifer’s cause and, refusing to renounce him, is exiled in hell.

From there, she tempts the humans to join their cause.

Adryel yearns to tell Ramael her love for him has not dimmed. She will risk any punishment, even hell’s lake of fire, in order to speak with him. But how can he return her love when she has done more to thwart God’s plans for humanity than have all of the other angels in hell combined?


My Review

Since childhood, I have always known the story that Lucifer was cast from heaven into hell being labeled as a fallen angel. In my childhood story, there isn’t much detail as to what happens and why. This was a great telling of the story of the fallen angels and the story of creation. The main character is a female power which is like a warrior. You will follow her as she chooses to follow Lucifer and witness all the decisions she makes from that point forward.
This was a wonderful book in my opinion. I truly enjoyed recognizing characters as I read along and seeing how everything would play out, The changes in the original story were interesting. Lucifer was an angel that was very emotional and his emotions lead to him being cast out of heaven, but from this point of view, you feel as though heaven is less as important as the Christian faith believes. The way the biblical characters were written into the book was also very creative. As with the story in Christianity the first two humans were manipulated and cast from the Garden of Eden. This manipulation was just the beginning of what Lucifer had planned. He was determined to show Adonis that creating humans would be a bad idea.
If you enjoy stories of myth or fantasy you will enjoy this book. No Christianity needed. I give this book 4 and a half stars. It was refreshing for me, considering the books I have been reading lately. It’s uniqueness kept me intrigued. Even if I knew nothing of this story I would have still enjoyed it.  Love, betrayal, and forgiveness.
I received this book free in return for an honest review.
