Add to Wish List
One hundred and fifty years have passed since the tenure of
the Archangel Gabriel and his angelica Rachel, a time of
peace and stability. But now, great storms are sweeping the
lands, the deserts flood, and the skies rain down death and
Then the proud and beautiful Archangel Delilah
falls victim to the rage of wind, as she is torn from the
sky, her wing broken. She can no longer soar in the
heavens, guiding and guarding those below. She can no
longer be first among the angels.
Never before have the
oracles had to choose a new Archangel while one still
lived. And though Jovah's anger blows all about them, still
they must consult him. His choice - the angel Alleluia, a
solitary scholar of undistinguished lineage. Now the fate
of the planet rests with the reluctant Archangel Alleluia,
who believes in her duty and her god. And her fate in turn,
may well depend on the mortal Caleb, a man who believes
only in science - and himself.
Interesting tidbit: What I find intriguing about this book is that there's no villain. There's no power struggle between ambitious individuals. It's all about man vs. the environment, with a healthy dose of man vs. faith.
My favorite scene: Alleya's second trip to Jehovah and their discussion about religion.
