Review: Fallen – Christine James
For as long as he can remember, the birth of the ‘chosen one’ has been foretold. Be it male or female, he or she will put a stop to Lucifer’s intended reign. Traveling long and far for centuries, Angelo has done his best to find the one whose birth has been foretold. He knows the ‘chosen one’s’ arrival is imminent. He just doesn’t know when the birth will be. Never-the-less, he is determined to fulfill the duty that has been assigned to him.
When he comes across the beautiful Erin, something about her draws his interest. While he can’t quite put his finger on what sets her apart, he knows he must do his best to protect her. It soon becomes apparent that she’s the one he’s been looking for all this time. Sadly, he’s not the only who’s come to the realization that the ‘chosen one’ has finally been born.
Lucifer’s minions are intent on putting a stop to what the prophecy has portended. They now know Erin is the key. Her safety and security is Angelo’s utmost goal, something he will give his very life for in order to achieve. He promised long ago that he’d make sure the duty he was given would be carried out, and now he has the chance to prove himself worthy of that task.
While Erin may not trust him completely, he’s delighted to find that she’s willing to give him the benefit of a doubt. Granted, she doesn’t want to believe that she is what he says she is. If they’re to outrun Lucifer and his guards in hopes of putting a stop to his sordid reign, they’ll need to set aside their differences, and work together to make that happen, once and for all.
The premise of this story captures the reader’s attention from the get-go. I’ve read quite a good many stories about angels/fallen angels, but nothing like what Christine has put together for us. It was honestly a very nice read. I did encounter a couple spots where typos were present along with some missing punctuation, but I didn’t let that detract from reading. The ending was a nice little cliffhanger that certainly keeps the reader guessing as to what happens next. Looking forward to book two.
Synopsis for Fallen:
Angelo searched for the one to save them for centuries. Never in his wildest dreams did he expect it to be a girl. From the beginning, he was drawn to her, but how could such a slip of a girl be the one to save mankind. He was supposed to train her and explain what she was, but how could he do his job and resist her at the same time? Could he put attractions aside and focus on his job and what he needed to do?
It was just supposed to be a fun night at their small town carnival, but a bizarre encounter with a mysterious fortune teller changed Erin’s life forever.
Then there was the stranger, the man who she literally ran into. A beautiful stranger that wouldn’t leave her thoughts and who suddenly haunted her dreams. Something about him pulled her to him, like an anchor sinking to the bottom of the ocean. Little did she know her life was about to change when he revealed to her that she wasn’t exactly human, and that she was destined to fight the most powerful evil on earth.
Erin’s life collided with Angelo’s, and now they are both in for a ride as they fight for the world, and fight their attraction for one another.

About The Author:
I’m a born and raised small town girl. I love fishing, camping, big and loud trucks, but don’t let my boots fool ya, I can slip out of my boots and into a pair of heels in no time flat! I love books and movies and it seems that there is never enough time to read or watch them all. I bake and decorate cakes (in my free time) pffft what’s that right?
My husband is my world. He has been my cheerleader as I strive to achieve my writing goals; he’s helped pick me up and dust me off when I get rejected; he laughs with me, and more times than not he laughs AT me, and he lends a shoulder for me to cry on. He’s my rock but more importantly he is my best friend. We have two beautiful sons, Dillyn (8) and Traben (2). They are my angels and by becoming an author I want to show them that their dreams can come true. I have something that not many people can brag about. I have my parents (both amazing God Fearing people married 31 years) and my AMAZING in-laws (married 44 years) these two couples are part of my inspiration. I am also fortunate to call my three younger brothers my best friends. I have a few close friends that have helped me come so far.
I value my relationships and treat them all like rare gems, because they are all special and unique in their own way. I love making people laugh, no matter what. Life is too short to be so serious all the time.
Writing has always been a dream of mine. It’s been a comfort when I’m hurting and an outlet when I’m mad. It is my security blanket.
