Product Description

Product Description

I am Laila, of the night. I have walked through godlight and through darkness. I have fought demons and I have slain angels. I am Laila, of the shadows. I have hidden and run, and I have stood up and striven. I am Laila, of tears and blood, of sins and of piety. I am Laila, outcast from Hell, banished from Heaven. I am alone, in darkness. I am Laila, of light and of fire. I am fallen. I rise again.

More About the Author

Daniel Arenson is a bestselling author of epic fantasy.

Four of his trilogies--Dawn of Dragons, Song of Dragons, Dragonlore, and The Dragon War--are set in Requiem, a world where humans can turn into dragons. He's also the author of Moth, a series about a world torn in two--its one half always in sunlight, the other always dark. Five of Daniel's books have hit Amazon's overall Top 100 bestsellers list; one has hit the Top 20. In total, his books have sold nearly 400,000 copies.

Raised on Dungeons & Dragons, The Lord of the Rings, and scratchy Star Wars VHS tapes, Daniel still consumes--and tries to contribute to--geek culture.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic battle between good and evil 20 Jan 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
A thoroughly great story about the war between Angels and Demons.

Thankfully Daniel Arenson keeps well away from 'religion', whilst dealing with the topic of Angels and Demons battling for control of the Earth.

It has a variety of themes in the book, mainly centering around family, friendship and the meaning of good and evil.

I would recommend this to anyone who likes dark fantasy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A KindleObsessed Review 19 Jan 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
When I was a teenager I was fascinated by angels. Not the puffy-winged-halo-sporting type, more the Archangel-wrath-of-God type. The fact that there was a whole army of sword wielding higher beings blew my mind. The more I read, the more I needed to read, and before I knew it I was knee deep in biblical reference material and spouting angelic tales to any poor soul that would listen. Now... like every other one of my unique (and sometimes warped fascinations) my futile need for warrior-angel information wained and I moved on, (If I remember correctly Al Capone was next on the list) but one thing is forever certain; once a junkie always a junkie. That being said, I will ask you now to imagine my excitement when I read the blurb for Daniel Arenson's new novel "Flaming Dove" and discovered it is basically the literary version of "Avenging Angel Crack."

Life on Earth hasn't been the same since Armageddon. A battle that was supposed to bring peace and happiness instead brought confusion, desolation, and for Laila a whole lot of anger. Being the daughter of an Angel, and the rape victim spawn of a Lucifer Laila, (more than anyone,) finds herself at a loss. Not wanting to take sides in the inevitable battle for Earth's holy possession she roams the woods like the outcast she has unknowingly made herself. But sometimes hiding is not enough. As the armies of Heaven and Hell search for their pawn, Laila finally realizes something... until she can accept her demon/angel ways, she will never be able to accept her fate in the history of the world.

Having read (and reviewed) Arenson's work before I was almost certain I would enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Absorbing! 19 April 2011
By E J L
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the second book I have read by Daniel and although this is completely different from "Firefly Island" it weaves that same spell over you all the same. A really well written book, that once again whisks you away in to his imagination and boy is that an incredible place to be! A must for Fantasy lovers!

4.0 out of 5 stars Really Enjoyed it; great story!! 12 April 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this book. I was familiar with most of the "Biblical" characters, such as Beelzebub, Raphael etc. I really liked Beelzebub's character, because Arenson really investigated the angel aspect of the 'fallen angel' concept. How would a fallen Angel feel, leading armies of demons? He loved Laila, perhaps because he saw the same conflict inside her. Laila is a complex character as well.

I love the relationship she has with her wolf, Volkfair. Maybe because I am a sucker for wolves, but he actually is important to her character development.
I already said how ingenious I think the idea for the story is, but I just wanted to say it again, in more detail. Stories about angels and demons aren't anything knew, but this was something different. Not only does it give place to epic battles, which Arenson already mastered in 'The Gods of Dream', but also gives him the possibility to show his skill in analyzing and developing his characters. Laila's flashbacks to when she was young is a great way to get to know her more and explain how she came to where she is. I also enjoyed Bat El, Laila's sister. She's the perfect angel, pious, beautiful and strong. Yet during the book she now only starts to question her own feelings and morals but also those of Heaven and Hell.

Also, may I say that I love Laila's mantra, which is at the beginning of this review. I think everyone has a little something they say to keep their own spirits up, but mine definitely isn't as epic or impressive as this one. It just goes to show that Arenson looked at mythology and knows how to write it.

4.0 out of 5 stars The murky border between good and evil.... 14 Jan 2014
By Cheryl M-M TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
If all the Fallen Angels are brothers then doesn't that make the daughters and sons of said angels relatives of all the other angels. So technically that makes Beelzebub an uncle to the half-sisters Bet-al and Laila. That makes all the seducing of very young girls just ever so slightly incestuous and Beelzebub a little less of a charming seducer.
The concept was quite interesting but the story suffered a little from repetitive phrases and the superb battle between the evil and good forces was overshadowed by the romantic overtures of the overeager Lord of Hell.
With Beelzebub being such a lech with a penchant for young virgins it might be easy to overlook another dilemma I found intriguing.
There is a grey area in between the evil demons and the good angels. Laila is both, which means she is neither completely demon nor angel. Then there is the issue of Bat-al changing her affiliations. So that must mean that angels and demons can be good and/or evil and perhaps a combo of the two. The murky waters that follow this conclusion are bound to ruffle some feathers and bat wings.
This book is part of Sinners & Sorcerers: Four Urban Fantasy Thrillers a four book box-set of Urban Fantasy stories.
