Mean Who You Are

I love reading and writing. I read most genres but my favourites would be paranormal romances and inspirational/motivational books. I have mostly started this blog because I love to read so much and want to share my reviews and thoughts with the world or anyone who wants to read it, giving my little bit of input to the world as well as any topics of light that would help and motivate you. I am also an aspiring author, in between reading books and reviewing them, I am writing two separate books, one fiction and one non-fiction. I have too many books and Ebooks, enough to last me probably 2 lifetimes! You can never have enough books... he he

Why did I choose this book/Source?: It is part of the author promotions program I belong to and anything that sounds intriguing and involves angels involved grabs my attention. 
What is the book about:
Even a match made in Heaven can go awry.

The Archangel Jarahmael and the War to Conquer Heaven is an epic three-part story of the Creation of the Universe, told from the perspective of the Angels themselves. 

The first book of the trilogy, "In the Beginning", describes the initial creation and the establishment of the Seven Heavens and the Nine Orders of angels, and also tells of the first Humans, Lillith and Adam. 

Although they are quite literally a match made in Heaven, free will wreaks havoc with destiny when Lillith falls in love with the Archangel Jarahmael. The book begins when Archangel Jarahmael descends from Seventh Heaven in search of Lillith, Adam's first wife. She has been missing for 3 days, and she is in danger. 

Can love, as the very essence of the Almighty's Universe, survive free will, or will love, when exposed to an untethered, will rip the Universe apart, pitting Good against Evil in a battle for all? 
My Review:
The book takes you on a journey illuminating how the Universe, Heavens and Earth were all created. You meet and are introduced to all the Angels, their orders and what role they play in maintaining and developing the Universe. The story is written mostly from the Angels perspective about the creation of everything: what they see, what they observe and how they feel about developments and changes being implemented by the Almighty.

I loved all the research that obviously went into all the types of angels and their orders in Heaven. John has vivid descriptions and a great deal of detail although this slowed the tempo of the book a bit, it has lay a good base for the rest of the series. The chapters were nice readable lengths.

This is a book about love, destiny and the courage to fight. You meet all the angels and I fell in love with the characters that were devoted to the Almighty and remained loyal. This story also covers how free will and jealousy rips apart bonds and allegiances, and it keeps you reading.  
Definitely an interesting read.
