Book Review - Fallen Angel by J.L. Myers

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Anniek

Lucifer was once an angel and God's servant. Angels are not free to do whatever they want. Everything comes down to the jobs that God has assigned to them. Lucifer fell in love with Gabriel, because he couldn't resist her beauty and her goodness. It's this love that caused Lucifer to be banished from heaven. On earth he has to live a human life, but he soon finds out that he still has more power than he thought. What will Lucifer do about all the hatred he's feeling inside?

Lucifer wasn't a bad angel or human. He just wanted to be free. The fact that his God left him to fend for himself left deep scars on his soul. Lucifer loves Gabriel dearly, but even with her pleading him to do better he can't return to the angel he was before. Lucifer thrives on power and he's a master at manipulation. Although he makes a lot of decisions that are pure evil I still understood where he was coming from. Lucifer's heart is wounded and he feels betrayed. However, Gabriel is persistent and I couldn't wait to discover if Lucifer would eventually be able to heal with the help of her love.

Fallen Angel is a unique and new look on how heaven and hell were formed. It also tells an interesting story about the origin of vampires. I loved the way J.L. Myers brought in a different and unique perspective. Lucifer is always seen as a fallen angel, but this story shows his feelings and indicates that he might not be so bad after all. I love reading about ancient times and J.L. Myers positively surprised me with this beautiful, thought-provoking story. I have been a fan ever since I read What Lies Inside and I can't wait to start reading the next book by this amazing author.

Advice

If you love to read about angels and vampires Fallen Angel will be a perfect choice. The book is part of the Blood Bound Series, but can easily be read as a standalone.
