The Fall of Lilith is a fantasy marvel that I wasn’t expecting to be almost guttural and feral as it was in places. Vashti shows us the creation of the heavenly realm, the angels and eventually Earth. I was very impressed with the personalities of the different angels, and how connected I became with them.
The beginning of the story has a childlike quality with the angels growing into themselves, and as they age, their personalities strengthen. Along with their changes the feeling of the words Vashti puts on the page match, leaving behind the sweetness of childhood, and bringing forth emotions that were relatable as they grew into adulthood. When Book 2 begins the grittiness intensifies as the fallen angels come forth transformed by their punishment.
I love reading imaginative books no matter the genre, and The Fall of Lilith by Vashti Quiroz-Vega is one of those books, and I give it 4 out of 5 Stars.
About The Fall of Lilith
In The Fall of Lilith, Vashti Quiroz-Vega crafts an irresistible new take on heaven and hell that boldly lays bare the passionate, conflicted natures of God’s first creations: the resplendent celestial beings known as angels.
If you think you know their story, think again.
Endowed with every gift of mind, body, and spirit, the angels reside in a paradise bounded by divine laws, chief of which are obedience to God, and celibacy. In all other things, the angels possess free will, that they may add in their own unique ways to God’s unfolding plan.
Lilith, most exquisite of angels, finds the rules arbitrary and stifling. She yearns to follow no plan but her own: a plan that leads to the throne now occupied by God himself. With clever words and forbidden caresses, Lilith sows discontent among the angels. Soon the virus of rebellion has spread to the greatest of them all: Lucifer.
Now, as angel is pitted against angel, old loyalties are betrayed and friendships broken. Lust, envy, pride, and ambition arise to shake the foundations of heaven . . . and beyond. For what begins as a war in paradise invades God’s newest creation, a planet known as Earth. It is there, in the garden called Eden, that Lilith, Lucifer, and the other rebel angels will seek a final desperate victory—or a venomous revenge.
“A compelling narrative that . . . strays far from traditional biblical text . . . A well-written, descriptive, and dark creation story.”—Kirkus Reviews
