Excellent book! A pretty tough awakening for the Nephilim in this book, a lot of danger, and not understanding what's going on. Very exciting, and heart-touching at the same time. ( )
  Lexxie | Apr 23, 2013 |
Grade 8 Up-After suffering a splitting headache on his 18th birthday, Aaron Corbet discovers that he can not only understand different languages, but also speak them. He can even talk to his dog. So begins this fast-paced fantasy. He learns that he is a Nephilim, an offspring of an angel and an Earth woman. Long ago, several angels decided to give up their wings to live among the humans. "The Powers" were sent to destroy all the fallen angels and their offspring. Legend has it that one Nephilim will be born and he will have the power to bridge the gap between the fallen angels and heaven, and Aaron is that one. The author spends some time explaining how the angels fell and why they are being hunted, but the action will keep readers interested. The climax of the book comes when Aaron faces Verchiel, the head of "The Powers." In the ensuing battle, his foster parents are killed and his autistic foster brother is taken as a slave. The book ends with Aaron beginning his search for Stevie, leaving the door open for a sequel.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 141693877X, Mass Market Paperback)

Aaron Corbet isn't a bad kid -- he's just a little different.

archangel

On the eve of his eighteenth birthday, Aaron dreams of a darkly violent landscape. He can hear the sounds of weapons clanging, the screams of the stricken, and another sound he cannot quite decipher. But gazing upward at the sky, he suddenly understands. It is the sound of great wings, angels' wings, beating the air unmercifully as hundreds of armored warriors descend on the battlefield.

Orphaned since birth, Aaron is suddenly discovering newfound -- and sometimes supernatural -- talents. But not until he is approached by two men does he learn the truth about his own destiny, and his role as a liaison between angels, mortals, and Powers both good and evil, some of whom are hell-bent on his own destruction....
