Fresh Fiction Review

The Trial Of Fallen Angels
James P. Kimmel

Reviewed by Audrey Lawrence

Even highly successful lawyers need to worry about getting to the daycare centre on time and Brek Abigail Cuttler is no exception. After a busy day working on client files, Brek feels a little guilty about being the last parent to arrive, but is happy to pick up her beloved daughter Sarah and inhale her sweet baby smells. But, her reality as a successful lawyer and happily married wife to a news anchorman soon fades away as Brek suddenly arrives at an unusual and deserted place called Shemaya Station, her smart black power lawyer suit covered in blood.

Greeted by an older man called Luas who seems to look like an old mentor of hers, Brek slowly starts to remember the details of her life, but the happenings around her death elude her. Getting used to this new unusual and fantastic world with its four season environment takes time but as Brek gradually realizes that she has in fact died, she finds it in some ways liberating -- no more deadlines, rushing to appointments or worried about financial penalties for arriving late at the daycare. Having lost her right arm as a child, Brek finds she still looks the same -- except for the three bullet holes in her body that seem to vanish over time.

Brek is told that due to her success as a lawyer on earth, her new role in heaven is to be a Presenter for other souls, so justice can prevail. To do this, she needs to absorb all the memories of the other person's life, so a balanced and objective editing for a verdict can be made. Brek is shocked about how the process works and rails against it, yet, she also realizes that she needs to participate in it. As she feels and experiences the memories of others, Brek discovers some astonishing intersections in their lives' paths and past secrets that she and they had blocked from others. Decisions made with unforeseen consequences. Can she really give a just accounting to those who have committed heinous crimes? Will she find what she longs for the most?

With his exceptional background in law and spirituality, debut author James Kimmel, Jr. has written a powerful and intriguing account of a symbolic and unusual afterlife that examines in differing ways the centuries old questions of justice, forgiveness, love and crime. While part philosophy, part mystery, part spiritual, THE TRIAL OF FALLEN ANGELS revolves around a world of legal presenters, trails and judging. Ultimately, however, it is about the choices we make in life and their effects on ourselves, our loved ones and on the future. As people are sure to react to it in differing ways and from different points of view, it will be a great selection for a book club.

I loved the story and the imagination in THE TRIAL OF FALLEN ANGELS and am definitely going to recommend it for my group for the fun of debating it. Do check it out! It is an incredible, page turning thought provoking read! Enjoy!
