It s not easy writing a story already written, much less with characters that most readers will have a preconceived notion of how they should appear and react. This is the book s main weakness, secondary to the unfamiliar terms and different spellings Having the Glossary at the beginning instead of the ending and with the eBook, I didn t even know it was there until I had finished the book would aid considerably in clearing up doubts to the author s meaning I spent a lot of time trying to figure out the real names of people and places, and this distracted from the story. That s why I m giving this four stars instead of five. The writing is good, despite the slowness of the first half and the frustration of the ange JC Lamont s Prophecy of the Heir is an ambitious and daringly imaginative fantasy retelling the Bible s history from the Creation of our universe to the birth of Christ Himself, as seen through the eyes of angels, both faithful and fallen Her novel combines the spiritual warfare and intrigue of CS Lewis or Frank Peretti with heroic action and adventure pulled from the pages of the Bible itself, remaining faithful to the Biblical revelation of a young earth and special creation Lamont s characters are engaging and believable In this imaginative retelling of history according to the Bible, she reminds us that the Bible is a book of adventure and high drama Prophecy of the Heir will make you look at the Scriptures anew through the eyes of warring angels Malakim and devils Shaityrim Throughout the book, the archangel Michael struggles to believe that God s love is behind His The Dead Breathe And The Immortal Die In A World Steeped In Bloodlust, The Avenging Archangel Michael Is Sent To Protect A Sacred Lineage Hunted By The Dark Lord, Hashatan Haunted By Visions Of A Bleeding Tree Growing Atop A Blackened Skull, Michael Kills Priests And Kings In An Attempt To Ensure The Birth Of The Prophesied Heir But Will He Go Too Far Ex Goth Turned Apologist, JC Left Home At Convinced By Her Father A Pastor That God Couldn T Look At Her, Let Alone Hear [J.

My reason for giving this book a 4 star rating rather than the 5 stars I would have liked to give it has to do with some theological concerns, especially about how God is presented First, it s rather clearly written from a Catholic theological perspective the 2nd Commandment is conspicuously missing, for example Angels the LOYAL ones seem to play fast and loose with God s will, sometimes purposely putting their own will first whic
