Product Description

Product Description

He thought he'd never find heaven again . . . until he met her.

Matthew Gallow is a fallen angel, cast out of heaven for daring to disbelieve. Furious, frustrated, and empty, he roams the earth, pretending to cast out demons and preserve souls. He doesn't have faith in anything—or anyone—until the night he nearly dies fighting a true fiend. His whole world is shaken. And when he meets Natalia, he isn't sure if he can trust her...or the attraction he feels for her.

Natalia works for Cain, a rocker living on the edge, and she invites Matthew to be a part of his wild stage show. It's perfect—an exorcism for a man who says he's sold his soul to the devil. Only Cain really is in league with Lucifer, and all mankind is at risk. Matthew never before cared whether or not the world went to hell. But as his passion for Natalia grows, he'll fight to the death to rescue her from evil's grasp...and realize that love is the one thing that can save a fallen angel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Angels, demons and rock stars 2 Jan 2009
By Helen Hancox TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Mother-and-daughter writing pairing Margaret and Lizz Weis have produced an interesting book with an insight into the busy and stressful life of concert promotion. Natalia Ashley is the manager of the hugely-successful rock star Cain. Her life is one of constant telephone calls, living on the road, enjoying the music. However her charge's latest concert tour isn't going as well and Natalia thinks it needs an extra zing - when she hears of a priest apparently casting out demons she thinks he might help to add something to the set.

When Natalia meets priest Matthew Gallow she's surprised by him; clearly he is a fraud but he is a very good one and agrees eventually to help with Cain's concerts. There's much more to Matthew than Natalia realises though; as a fallen angel Matthew has lived for two thousand years and nothing feels special or important anymore. However meeting Natalia and becoming involved in a genuine exorcism seem to have awakened Matthew, not only to his feelings and senses but also to the suspicion that something dodgy is going on out there. It seems that Cain may have got sucked into something more serious than he - or Natalia - realise, but Matthew doesn't believe he's the one to sort it out. After all, he's a fallen angel. But can he really walk away from Natalia and her problems, and can they have a future?

I did enjoy reading this book and the dual authorship didn't impact at all on the story as it sometimes can. I felt slightly distant from the main characters, not able to fully sympathise with or understand them, and I was left slightly confused at the end as to what exactly had happened in the final pages. Still it was worth reading and the rock concert scene was a different setting than the norm.

2.0 out of 5 stars It didn't do it for me 21 July 2009
By EFM
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It's well written but romance is secondary. There is a lot of music and movies references but not much romantic stuff. I read up to page 100 and was bored to death then had to skim through until I got to the nice parts (p 225). The writers don't really give you a full description in the sex bits and what they do is so bland. J.R. Ward, Gena Showalter and Kresley Cole any time but not these ladies. Sorry

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Really a Romance or a True Paranormal 2 Jan 2009
By Traci King - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is just not good enough to be a romance and not strong enough or otherworldly enough to be a paranormal. I didn't warm up to the romance and neither did the characters nor did the devil vs angel plot come off for me and I disliked the ghost grandfather that seemed like a silly insert into this already poor tale. The ending was the topper of this bad scenerio, dull, undramatic and completely lacking in romance. It was unsatisfying and did not help me understand the relationship between the hero and heroine. I think this author and her daughter should stick to fantasy and sci fi instead of venturing into a field that they have no understanding. They have obviously never studied or dare I say even read any of the successful paranormal romance novels or they would have created a different scenerio. If you are an avid readeer of paranormal romances as I am, don't bother with this one. You will be very disappointed. To me this doesn't deserve the two stars I gave it but I thought I'd leave some room for those of you who like dull, weak romance plots and are afraid to read real paranormal stories. You might like this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Bookmarks from Wild on Books! 29 Oct 2008
By Natalie S - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Matthew Gallow is an angel, a fallen one, but still considered a heavenly being. A martyr over 1600 years ago. Matthew was thrown out of heaven for his disbelief. Refusing to apologize or ask forgiveness, Matthew has spent his immortal life wandering the Earth and changing careers every so often. His career now is that of `Father' Gallow, exorcist. Of course, he doesn't REALLY exorcise demons, he tricks unsuspecting church followers out of their money. With no faith to believe in Matthew drinks and plans about his next `revival' - until the night he actually does cast out a demon and almost dies in the process. His world in chaos, Matthew has no choice but to follow Natalia Ashley to Las Vegas and the gig she talked him into agreeing to. After all, who better to sin in "sin city" than a FALLEN ANGEL, right?

To band manager Natalia Ashley, her life and career are all about the music. Raised by a hippy grandfather until his death, Natalia grew up on the road following bands. The manager for Cain, a rocker with a passion for the devil, Natalia sees Matthew's latest revival and while she knows without a doubt he is milking the faithful of his audiences out of thousands, she doesn't care. She needs an over-the-top gimmick to keep Cain's fans coming to his concerts since they seem to be tanking and Cain's behavior is getting more out of control daily. She just needs to convince Matthew to go along with it.

Natalie and Matthew have no idea what has really happened to Cain. All too soon, however, they will find out and the results are earth shattering as good battles evil in a battle as old as time.

FALLEN ANGEL starts out with a bang and the action never stops. Seeing the title to this book, I knew I had to read it - especially after the blurb. Matthew Gallow is a fallen angel. A Christian who was put to death so many years ago when it was deadly at times to be a Christian. Like Christianity, Matthew's faith was new to him at his time of death and so once in Heaven, Matthew voiced questions and concerns and had a hard time following the program. His behavior and disbelief got him sent back to Earth as an immortal. Matthew drinks. He plays around with loose women. But most of all he thinks. He thinks about his wife from so long ago. He wonders about what would have happened had he not fallen. And when Natalia Ashley shows up in his life he wonders what his life would be like if a woman as beautiful as she fell in love with him.

Matthew does not have to wait long because Natalia has been fixated upon "Father" Gallow from the first moment she sees his face on the news - she travels across country just to meet him. Despite her infatuation, Natalia still doesn't understand that Matthew's last exorcism was in fact, real. She thinks he is a fake and while she isn't disrespectful to Matthew, I can feel her underlying laughter. Materialistic and realistic at times, Natalia is focused on making money and music. It isn't until they become closer that I see Natalia's true nature. Hidden inside this extremely powerful and intelligent woman is a young girl once more yearning for someone to love her unconditionally like her grandfather used to love her. When she realizes that Matthew is more than what he seems, her faith in him is infallible.

The battle of Good vs. Evil is predominant in FALLEN ANGEL. And even knowing this, I still was on pins and needles wanting to know what was going to happen. I could NOT get enough of this dynamically written story and I feel other readers will love FALLEN ANGEL just as much as I did.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little tarnish on the halo, doesn't hinder in the fight against evil 7 Dec 2008
By melindeeloo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Fallen angel Matthew Gallow has lost his wings but not his immortality. Matthew's existence, which has spanned many mortal lifetimes, weighs heavily upon him. He makes his living continuing to flaunt the rebellion against God which cost him his place in heaven, he is a con-man performing fake exorcisms. The long years have deadened Matthew to sensation and emotion until the day his con takes a turn for the real and he actually exorcises a real demon, only barely managing to survive.

The exoricism is a turning point for Matthew in more ways than one, not only does the brush with death bring Matthew back to 'life' with feelings, tastes and colors reappearing, but the exorcism is witnessed by rock band manager Natalie who sees Matthew's act as just the thing to pump up the ending to her rocker Cain's floundering stage show - Natalie wants Matthew to perform his exorcism on Cain during the big finale number 'Possesion'. But even as Matthew finds himself falling for the vital and attractive Natalie, there are evil forces surrounding Cain and his act. And soon in the ultimate battle between the forces of good and evil, the forces of good are relying on Matthew, an angel with a tarnished halo and long abandoned faith.

Though billed as a fantasy romance, Fallen Angel is not super romancey. There is a relationship between Natalie and Matthew but it is not at the forefront of the action, just a side note. Still there is plenty of action and the plot unfolds nicely building the suspense. Matthew is sympathetic as the con man angel who paradoxically tells the truth and Natalie has such a wonderful attitude about life that the way she revives Matthew's interest in life is totally believable. Also adding a fun side element to the mix is Natalie's ghost hippie grandfather - he adds some humor to the serious goings on.

On the whole I found Fallen Angel to be entertaining, original and a nice change of pace - also appealing is that even though the Weis pair also wrote another angel novel together (Warrior Angel), Fallen Angel is completely stand-alone, but I love the angel theme and hope that they write more.

1.0 out of 5 stars I wanted to like it... 20 Mar 2011
By brooklynborn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I was all gung ho on this book, (must be my catholic school upbringing lol) angels vs demons, yeah! The book however didn't deliver, the authors are dull, the dialogue unsnappy, the character of Mr. Gallow was totally unbelievable. He's an angel that's been around for 2000 yrs, yet he doesn't believe the roadies were demons, even when he sees them, in their true form trying to kill his girl. Yikes! He goes from a strong silent protector to an ineffectual wimp so many times in the book, that you lose all empathy for him. Kimo the (human) bodyguard was more receptive to supernatural occurrences than the darned angel himself. It's hard for me to conceive that Margaret Weis is a best selling author, all I know is I'll never find out because I won't be reading any of her scifi books or anymore of her "romance" books either. I'm glad that my book was a public library discard that I bought for 50 cents. The one star I gave was mostly for the deadhead grandpa Woof, he was funny.
