I read the first part a few years ago. Still have yet to get to the next. It's just not very interesting. ( )

Different covers would help this series appeal more to its target audience - guys. Lots of battles, gross descriptions of Leviathan's entrails, and no romance. Story was good, but girls picking it up because of its outward resemblance to Lauren Kate's books or the Twilight books will be disappointed. ( )

The Fallen:

Supernatural YA with angels, fallen and otherwise, as the supernaturals du jour. Starts out with a familiar premise: ordinary teenager starts noticing something's odd, gets told he's not so ordinary after all, doesn't believe it, and eventually does when something big makes him do so. I'm cool with that premise; I knew that was what I was getting when I picked up the book. But somehow I just never quite got hooked into the story. I like the set-up with the angels killing off the Nephilim as they reach maturity because they think that's what God wants and a prophecy saying that one of the Nephilim will bring the fallen angels back into the fold. But I dunno. I felt like this book, even though short, took too long to get things moving. And none of the characters do a super lot for me. Since I do like this kind of thing (and I've been wanting an angels story (instead of vampires or werewolves or sommat)) and it was written well and the set-up is promising (and since I already have book two because omnibus edition), I will probably read the next installment and see if things pick up for me.

The first book, [b:The Fallen|523424|The Fallen (The Fallen, #1)|Thomas E. Sniegoski|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1175526577s/523424.jpg|1754696] had potential with a good idea but the characters were transparent, they were so thin. We were never with the characters long enough to truly care about them so that when they died I felt nothing and wondered why it took so long for Aaron to get angry about this when generally he was short-tempered anyway. And why did it take him so long to embrace what came with his anger, his angel heritage, his power which could've saved them?

Verchiel as an adversary was so blind to his own madness it was comical at first until it became inexcusably pathetic. He knew what he was doing was his will, not God's and yet he continued with every goal he tried to achieve only hastening his own failure. Could he not get a clue from that alone that God was unhappy with him? Plus, I don't understand how his blasphemous actions: hunting, torturing and killing innocents in the name of God -haven't seen him lose his wings (literally and figuratively). All he received was a lousy lightning strike which may have cooked his ass but didn't kill him. I don't get it. Please let me in on that piece of reasoning. Others have Fallen for a lot less.

Aaron's yellow Labrador companion, Gabriel was mildly amusing and it would've been nice to see more of Zeke (Camael was a poor substitute in my opinion -very wooden) but the budding attraction between Aaron and Vilma although forced was also sort of sweet and realistic at the same time. However, the language created a very slow pace so that there was no immediacy to any of the action. 2 stars.

The second book, [b:Leviathan|730978|Leviathan (The Fallen, #2)|Thomas E. Sniegoski|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1177774247s/730978.jpg|717172] was meaningless trash. B-movie stuff which reminded me of old movies like The Blob or a weird non-episode of The X-Files. I skimmed my way to freedom. There was no way I could read every word without my brain exploding in revolt. 1 star.

I doubt this book will charm the [b:Hush, Hush|6339664|Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1)|Becca Fitzpatrick|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1275621186s/6339664.jpg|6525609] crowd though it might snag the interest of young boys of about 10 who are easy to please with monsters and fire and swords, oh my.

I give up. I'm tired now having stayed up most of the night to finish this rubbish and feel I'm turning into a vindictive b*tch so I'm going to stop writing now. ( )

This book contain the first two books in 'The Fallen' series. Eighteen year old Aaron starts hearing strange voices and is convinced he is on the brink of insanity when he can suddenly speak and understand multiple languages. When he brings his dog, Gabriel, back to life the dog is changed an Aaron can now understand and speak to him too.

A mysterious man begins following Aaron; one who knows about his past and his the changes taking place. Eventually he convinces Aaron that he is a Nephilim; the son of a mortal woman and an angel. As well as that, Aaron has been chosen for a special task: to redeem the Fallen. To achieve this he must battle the group of angels known as the Powers led by vengeful angel Verchiel, along with otherworldly creatures.

This book had the elements of a good book, but just didn't really pull it off for me. ( )
