The Fall of Lilith

The Fall of Lilith by Vashti Quiroz Vega

My review follows the author’s book blurb found on Amazon.

“Fallen angels battle for survival in this dark and epic fantasy novel.

Though given free will the angels must pledge obedience and celibacy to God, and dire consequences await any who break their oaths.

At first, the angels are happy in their celestial home and followed the rules. As they grow older, the angel Lilith begins to question these pledges, which now seem arbitrary and stifling. Her challenge of the status quo leads to disagreement, jealousy, and strife among her peers, especially Michael who carried secret feelings for her. As the arguing and acrimony grow, lines are drawn and sides are chosen. War becomes inevitable.

Lilith’s rhetoric provokes an uprising. She eventually seduces Lucifer and persuades him to revolt against God. A vicious battle ends in defeat for Lilith, Lucifer, and their allies. They are cast out of Heaven and exiled to a primitive Earth, changed in appearance and capacity.

The rebel angels thought they could enjoy heaven on Earth, but in truth they had just begun to suffer.”

Where do I begin? I have never before read a book this epic and amazing. The genre isn’t my normal genre but I have come to appreciate other genres as my reading and writing career goes forth.

This book starts with heaven and there are three levels of heaven. God has given the angels free will and He loves all His angels. As the angels grow older, like teenagers, some find they want to have free will on their level of heaven. The angels lived in a paradise called Floraison filled with lush meadows, gardens, waterfalls, and the like. They have no need for food. Lilith decides that she wants more; she wants free will in all ways possible. She becomes evil – quite wicked and very manipulative. She uses that to her advantage and she knows just how to get other angels to rebel.

God decides to show his angels a new creation and from that He makes the galaxy and eventually Earth. During Creation the angels watch as He makes the oceans, water creatures, trees, grass, animals, and flying creatures. He creates a beautiful Garden of Eden filled with the most luscious flowers, trees, etc and then He makes Man. Man shall be the ruler of this domain and He makes this man a woman to be with him. Adam and Eve – they are naked and the most beautiful creatures the angels have ever seen. Lilith starts a revolt and they lose, and are banished from heaven.

The second book is about their life on Earth and the hell they went trough. Lilith wants her revenge against God and she uses any and all means to achieve that goal.

This is a well-written book and I highly recommend this for anyone who loves fantasy, God, and the supernatural. I have intentionally left out details as I want future readers to be shocked by what they read. Five stars.

Heads up: Mature themes.
