Rise of the Fallen

Back Cover: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 just love Chuck Black's books. So when I saw I could get his new book I jumped at the chance. (Again) :)
In the first book, the story is shown through the eyes of Drew Carter, who, after an accident, was able to see the spiritual realms of angels and demons. In this second book of the Wars of the Realm series, you see the story from the perspective of Validus, an angel who is sent to protect Drew from the fallen angels. As Validus struggles to understand God's plan for humanity, and why Drew is so important, you get to see "behind the scenes" of what Drew Carter is only beginning to see, and understand.

I really enjoyed this book, though with each chapter switching from the past to the present, it sometimes was confusing. Chuck Black did a great job writing this book, and I really enjoyed how realistic the fighting was, as the author was once a pilot in the airforce. 
I would definitely recommend the Rise of the Fallen.

I received this book free from Blogging for Books for an honest review.

I would rate this book 9 out of 10 stars.
