Release Date: September 25, 2018
For centuries Gabriel, Michael and Lucifer have worked together, coexisting in the same universe. Gabriel chooses to remain silent and secluded, preferring the garden in the Hall of Souls. He dances beneath the Tree of Life, barefoot and with reckless abandon…until the day he looks into the eyes of another angel and sees the dreams he’s kept silent mirrored there.
Eons have passed since the moment Michael came to be the general of the All Father’s army in heaven, the protector of mankind. Michael has been in love with Lucifer for as long as he can remember, their relationship second only to his bond with the All Father. But lately, Michael has begun to notice cracks in the surface of their love, sensing that his lover is not as angelic as he seems.
Lucifer was the All Father’s first creation, the bringer of light, his Morning Star. He has sat to the right of the throne every day since the dawn of time. Two things were tasked to the Archangels from the start: put no other before the All Father, and protect the humans he cherishes. Lucifer challenges both sacred rules. He puts his love for Michael before his love for his creator, and he questions his creator’s wisdom when it comes to the atrocities he has seen committed by mankind.
One will fall while two remain and grow stronger. A battle of wills is on the horizon, and not only mankind, but the fate of all beings will hang in the balance.

The Messenger by T.M. Smith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is the story of God and his angels. At its center is an all consuming love. Michael loved Lucifer. Lucifer fell from grace. Michael loved Gabriel.
Michael had been with Lucifer since the beginning of time. When Lucifer let the darkness take over his being, he was banished to hell. Michael turned to Gabriel, realizing there had always been a thread between them.
Angels having sex isn’t your everyday type of story. The author took bits and pieces from the Bible and turned it into an interesting love story. As a person who vaguely accepts the theories of religion, I had no issues with the religious aspect of the story.
