About The Book

Death’s plan for revenge is derailed by his lust for one of the Creator’s angels.

Being second to Michael has never sat well with Allerio. Feeling slighted, he travels beyond the heavens, meeting a creature who informs him of his Father’s secrets. With curiosities niggling him, he challenges his god, seeking freedom from stringent rules. Though the prize might look wonderful on the surface, it comes with a heavy price the angel will bear for eternity. 

Death’s banishment was only the beginning of his descent. Since then, he’s concocted a scheme to overthrow the highest being, proving him to be a liar. Although confident his plot will succeed, he convinces one of High’s top helpers to assist him. However, Death never intended for feelings of affection to consume him. Suddenly wrecking God’s perfection isn’t as important anymore. 

Two gods join forces and become bonded in more ways than one. Can they overcome their emotions to achieve their ultimate goal? 

Death’s Angel is the prequel story to Immortals, chronicling the very beginning of Lucifer’s ascent as the god of the third and fourth planes. This story involves male pregnancy and mating. 

Warning: On page violence, extreme torture, and death. Look inside for further triggers. 

The Review

This is the tale of the fall of Lucifer like you’ve never seen it.  For one thing, this version of Lucifer would never have called his exit from Heaven a fall of any kind, but rather a freeing!  Beginning life as the angel Allero, he soon realizes he wants more. Here enters Death.  

The relationship between he and the being that is Death is in turns disturbing and unexpectedly sweet.  This quick novella definitely sets up the coming series well by introducing a cast of characters that include angels and demons galore.  

This is a challenging read. It takes all those biblical tales and turns them on their head.  Getting past the ingrained stories was critical in being able to enjoy this perspective.  

My favorite part of this story was that even though the characters were literally angels and demons, there were redeeming qualities and damning qualities in every one. This was a great introduction to this world and the following stories should be an interesting adventure.

The Reviewer

In writing this bio I am taking a rare break from reading! I always have a book on hand just in case there is time to sneak in a chapter or two. As a military spouse and a mom of two boys, it is amazing how often I am hurrying up to wait. Luckily for me I don’t have a favorite genre so I get lots of fun authors to choose from. My education was in sociology and mental health counseling, so stories with strong character development are my favorites. Happily Ever After is the best part of romance for me because real life is hard enough.
