Book Review - Between Heaven and Hell by David Burnett plus $20 Amazon / Paypal Giveaway

Book Review
Between Heaven and Hell 
by David Burnett 
Book Description
One war….
Opposing sides…
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?

Our Book Review
The story began with a colorful array of descriptive text that could easily be imagined.  A meeting of the council of archangels, the hosts of Heaven, had been arranged to discuss a proposed new plan from Adonai, their leader.  Adonai's plan - 'The Plan of Creation' was for the creation of 'humans' who would live on 'earth', but unlike the archangels the 'humans' would be given the choice of choosing between good and evil without knowing the difference.  Lord Lucifer was strongly against this as he believed this would create an unruly, dangerous world, causing chaos and potential danger to the heavenly world.

A debate in the palace square had been arranged for everyone by Lord Lucifer and his team to take place before he sat with the coucil of archangels again to finally decide on Adonai's plan, knowing they would go ahead and approve it.  Yet the debate did not go to plan, or did it? Rocks were thrown, chaos begins and war starts!

Ramael, second in command in the army of Heaven, and Adryel, a secretary of the council, are paired and very much in love, yet they potentially see themselves on different sides of the debate due to loyalty. Adryel understands Lord Lucifer's logic but does not agree with his methods and finds herself at his side trying to persuade him to use peaceful alternatives, she also has some nagging doubts in her mind on his ulterior motives.  Little does she know that she is simply a pawn in his sly and calculated game for power.  An evil lie is told which changes Adryel's life and believes the rules have changed, seeing herself and Lord Lucifer's team banished to the burning pit of hell.  What will happen with the humans?  Who will win the war? Will Ramael and Adryel's love now end?

I was intrigued to read this story as it pulled away from the author's usual writing although it still had the underlying story of love and the walls they needed to climb to overcome the obstables in front of them.  The authors writing ability shone through as it always does and I found myself pulled into the story and the connecting to the characters.

A thoroughly interesting and enjoyable read from the author.  I had a huge smile on my face when I was reading the ending and found myself pondering on the lesson it taught.

  1. I so glad you enjoyed Between heaven and Hell! Thank you for the kind review.

    David Burnett

  2. If I were an angel my name would be Michael because my fave angel is St Michael, the archangel. He is the leader of all angels and of the army of God.


Always lovely to hear your comments xx
