About Rise of the Fallen

A six thousand year war rages and now the demonic Fallen are coming for him—the one man shrouded in mystery. Only Validus stands in their way.

Validus is the last and least of God’s angels, but he’s seen much across the millennia since his creation. Empires have risen and fallen as angelic and demonic forces battle in a raging war that will determine humanity's fate – and the fate of his defeated brothers.


Eventually called to be an earth-bound warrior, Validus rises to a position of power and respect, commanding legions of angels through impossible battles and overwhelming odds. But when orders arrive from the Creator's most elite Messenger, he finds himself suddenly demoted to a task of apparent insignificance considering the fierce war they are waging against the demonic Fallen – the covert protection of one unbelieving man.


Validus soon finds himself on a mission that will push him beyond his abilities as he battles to protect Drew Carter, for the Fallen are coming for him. Legions of them.

As Validus races against time to discover why Drew is so important to humanity's survival, can he stand between Drew and all who would destroy him?

I really liked this book, it was a great continuation of the first book. I loved how the book when back to the beginning of times and explained what happened with Lucifer and all the other angels. Also, I loved the fact that we got to know Validus more, where he came from, what he went through and how he ended up where he is today. I also liked the transition, one chapter would be present day and another would be either AD or BC. As a...

This is the 2nd book I have read by Chuck Black, the first being Clock of Light, and I have yet to be disappointed. The tremendous things God has in store for all of us, from the least to the greatest. This book takes place at the same time as Cloak of Light and after so you really need to have read the first one already to really enjoy how intricately Black weaved these two stories together. Black created...

Rise of the FallenWar of the Realms 2By Chuck BlackRise of the Fallen is the second book in Chuck Black's Wars of the Realm series.  This book though a sequel is in many respects a prequel and at the same time a synchronized story told from an alternative point of view.  In this book we see through Validus's eyes rather than Drew Carter's.We are taken to the early days when Creation was still in its holy perfection.  Validus the last angel...

Validus is an angel, the least among them. He was always ready to fight for the Lord, but didn't think it would happen. There were so many others! But, over time, Validus had seen so much war between demons and angels, that when he got the chance to lead, he did it well. He became respected as a leader. But then there was another job he was called to do, something he thought was menial. Was Validus right in feeling demoted, or was there a...
