Summary

What would you do for love? The sequel to the best-selling book The Third Heaven: The Rise of Fallen Stars is finally here!

Heaven stands decimated by war. Lucifer's exile places mankind at the center of the mad angel's plot to overthrow God.

Meanwhile, Michael must now take on a mantle of leadership that he did not seek and is tested to see if he is worthy of the title of chief prince. Yet, a conflict eats at him as he wrestles with his sworn duty to Heaven and his obedience to God; torn over a vision of a future revealed by the creator himself - a future that shows the death of God. Will Michael succumb to a darker path that once more would plunge Heaven into civil war, or will he trust and yield to the revealed will of God?

For, in order to save humanity and heal the rift to his kingdom, God will make the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of his beloved creation, answering for all time the most powerful questions driving the universe: whom will you serve and whom do you love?

I really enjoyed this book it was a great find.

I kind of love story's about God and his angels plus mankind and the world. even tho it's a story it's fact in some cases. I am definitely a believer in God and jesus. I have looked time and time again for books like this and to be honest there isn't any. I have listened to the first book and also the second and I think they are both great and I really do hope there are many books by this writer he has definitely done a great job

fantastic fiction but helpful and enjoyable

really good book for Christians and non Christians alike though I think it is helpful to know the Bible to fully appreciate the brilliance of the books in this series

relationships

This brings the Bible names to life. it helps me to realize everything was spiritual before it was physical as the scriptures say. Reading the OT after this brings it to life. We are indeed foolish if we think we can ignore Gods word or our eternal purpose and destiny. This is a good way to get our attention

Third Heaven book 2

I think this is a 5 star read because of the performance of the narrator and the imagination of the author. For me it was a bit heavy on the spiritual side of the battle rather than the human, nevertheless I think the author achieved his goal to produce wholesome christian entertainment.

Awesome book - but won’t be buying the next one

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, absolutely!! First experience with Biblical fantasy and I am sold on this author. He is Biblically sound and, while he has a great imagination, he does not stray from traditional Church doctrine - which is usually the case.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Chereon (the guardian of hell) was one of my favorites.

Which character – as performed by Angelo Di Loreto – was your favorite?

El (God)

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

Yes!

Any additional comments?

***I purchased the first two books of this series, but unfortunately I do not plan on purchasing the third book, as the author decided to narrate this one himself. Aside from the writing, the narration was what sold me on the book. I originally returned my first purchase, but was compelled to give it another try based solely on the narration. Di Lorento has an excellent reading voice, perfectly suited for this genre. The author, not so much. If the author ever releases another version with the original narrator, I will purchase it gladly.

Jaw Dropping

The first book was really good but this one is fantastic! It feels anointed and you can feel the presence of God while you listen. The perspective is jaw dropping. When I am finished with the third book I will listen to all 3 again! I never do that! These are masterpieces that should be movies. 5 stars!!

This is why God gave us imagination.

This is why God gave us imagination. Excellent story. This story can spark interest in God's word which will save your eternal soul.

I'm a follower forever

Love the book, love the narrator. The book comes to life. I caught my kids listening while we were driving. I thought they were watching their movie in the back, but they were listening to the story. I love this author, and he surely picked the right narrator. I could not wait for my next audio book credit, so I just paid for this one. I will read everything this writer puts out.

there's good, bad and just plain ugly

The Good: There's plenty of really quotable one liners that could easily be from Star Wars or similar huge movies that truly give character to these literally larger then life characters. Also there's still plenty of good quality character development and story moments such as (SPOILER ALERT) when El asks which angel will deliver him to Mary and none of them are willing to do it. they're all like "Ya, the last time El was gone, BAD stuff happened". I thought this was really perfect (and personally how I would have responded). There's a huge battle that is really well done, with plenty of moments of personal battles showing of how badass the characters can get. there's even a Commando Rescue mission involved 😎. Also Enoch is introduced in this book is is very well done as are the angels various reactions to him.

The Bad: while this starts of strong, about half way through it goes on a tangent of quoting the old testament for several chapters. The first book of this series is nearly entirely Original as a story so why? The second book has a lot of Satan does this so El genocides these people for not knowing that Thier gods were Fallen angels (why not just send a angel to to tell people instead of killing thousands?!). It gets to the point of essentially being a morbid spectators view of humanity being batted back and forth between El and Lucifer with plenty of dry biblical quotations. it becomes difficult to see either as being somehow Better then the other.

The Ugly: HUGE ENDING SPOLIER: Frustratingly the Conception and Annunciation are little more then sidenotes to the huge battle I mentioned. THE ENTIRE BOOK has literally built up to THIS moment and it seems barely given any thought.
this part really needs more attention to give it the proper gravitas. I'm not even a believer and I'm annoyed that these kind of narratives always seem to gloss over the whole Mary being The MOTHER thing. I was hoping this book would be an exception but I was wrong.

Overall: I would give 3.5 stars if I could for the story as there is still plenty of good to balance the bad. And I'm mainly here for the angels.

Good book!

These books have always fascinated me and especially this story. The detail put into and the very descriptive way This was laid out engaged my mind throughout the first two books.. I have never given a review of a book before but the narrator and author are very good and I would recommend this book to anyone who likes biblical fiction..with the historical bible background it gives.. Bravo! Chaps Bravo!

A Very Intense, but Compelling story

Just finished book #2 and have to say I am sincerely enjoying. Love Christian fiction and happy to see someone not afraid to write a powerfully intense story. My only complaint is the narrator for the audible app. Not the best with applying different voices which misses the mark at times connecting me emotionally to very well written parts of the story.
