It’s a recipe for heartbreak.
In a war that pits Lucifer against the Army of Heaven, it’s a recipe for disaster.
The lives of Adryel and Ramael, two young angels who are in love, are altered forever when God determines to create humans.
His decision is met with scorn from Lucifer, one of the archangels. The humans, he asserts, will cause evil and chaos throughout creation. God’s proposal, he says, is flawed. As Lucifer debates the plan’s merits with another archangel in Palace Square, their discussion turns into argument. Argument leads to insults, rocks are thrown… and battle lines are drawn.
Ramael is second in command of the Army of Heaven. His loyalty never waivers.
Adryel casts her lot with Lucifer. Swayed by his arguments, she leaves Ramael and all else she holds dear. She wages war for Lucifer’s cause and, refusing to renounce him, is exiled in hell. From there, she tempts the humans to join their cause.
Adryel yearns to tell Ramael her love for him has not dimmed. She will risk any punishment, even hell’s lake of fire, in order to speak with him. But how can he return her love when she has done more to thwart God’s plans for humanity than have all of the other angels in hell combined?
I am a huge fan of David Burnett so when this book was offered to me I could not wait to read it. In true Burnett style I was pulled right in from the very beginning and could not wait to keep reading. Between Heaven and Hell is a different type of story than I usually read and is different from the other books of David Burnett’s that I have read.
Adryel is an angel rebelling against God’s creation. When faced with the choice of believing that creation is a good thing or following Lucifer’s path Adryel chooses Lucifer. I found it interesting how she talked herself into believe what Lucifer was telling his followers. I could feel the deceit, I wanted to tell her not to believe, yet… she had to. She had to do what she felt was right.
When Adryel was on Earth, seeing the world for the first time, meeting humans, seeing animals, and tasting the fruits I could feel her amazement at all the God had created. I imagined what I would have felt had I been in her place. The awe, the wonder, and the not knowing all of what she was seeing was perfectly portrayed.
David Burnett wrote an eye opening, thought provoking story. The ending was my most favorite.
