Publisher's Summary

A 6,000 year war rages and now the demonic Fallen are coming for him, the one man shrouded in mystery. Only Validus stands in their way. Validus is the last and least of God's angels, but he's seen much across the millennia since his creation. Empires have risen and fallen as angelic and demonic forces battle in a raging war that will determine humanity's fate - and the fate of his defeated brothers.

Eventually called to be an earth-bound warrior, Validus rises to a position of power and respect, commanding legions of angels through impossible battles and overwhelming odds. But when orders arrive from the creator's most elite messenger, he finds himself suddenly demoted to a task of apparent insignificance, considering the fierce war they are waging against the demonic Fallen - the covert protection of one unbelieving man.

Not a series to miss!

Chuck Black has written another wonderful story relaying the important message of God's love for humanity, His plan for our salvation and the power made available to us through Him. He expertly threads in the history of God's relationship with humanity inside this compelling story.

The story is gripping and Chuck draws us into the world of Drew Carter and the raging battle of angels and demons for the souls of humanity. His storytelling ability is fabulous and appeals to all but especially little men, who need strong characters in literature. My 5 year old son loves all the books by Chuck but especially this series.

It was an adjustment for us to listen to the narrator for this story and his style as it is different than most audio books we have listened to. However as we progressed through the books it became clear that he narrator was a great choice and really highlights the militaristic tone of the story. The narration was slow for us so we increased the playback speed to 1.1 which was perfect for us.

The Powers that Be Behind the Powers We See!

What if the veil between two realities could be pulled back allowing us to see both the spiritual reality and physical reality simultaneously? What if we were given the ability to not only see but participate in the interaction between these two realities? What if a cosmic battle between the kingdom of darkness and the kingdom of light really is taking place all around us, a fight for the souls of mankind? This second book of the trilogy continues to explore what this conflict might look like, and how that war might impact the life we live daily. I loved listening to this story unfold as the author challenged the reader's/listener's perception of true reality.

good read

Where does Rise of the Fallen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

not as good as book one but i am guessing all the explanations in this book must prepare for the final book of the trilogy

What about Michael Orenstein and Leanne Bell ’s performance did you like?

excellent narration

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes
