Book Description

At the dawn of time, two ancient adversaries battled over control of Earth. One man rose to stand at humanity's side. A soldier whose name we still remember today...

Angelic Special Forces Colonel Mikhail Mannuki'ili awakens, mortally wounded, in his crashed ship. The woman who saves his life has abilities which seem familiar, but with no memory of his past, he can't remember why! With his ship destroyed and a shattered wing, he has no choice but to integrate into her village.

Ninsianna's people have prophecies of a winged champion, a Sword of the Gods who will defend her people against an Evil One. Mikhail insists he is no demigod, but her dark premonitions and his uncanny ability to kill say otherwise. Even without the technology destroyed along with his ship, the sword he carries is a weapon of mass destruction to a people who still throw sticks and stones. When women start to disappear, Mikhail must organize her people to fight back .

Evil whispers to a sullen Prince. A dying species seeks to avoid extinction. Two emperors, entrenched in their ancient ideologies, cannot see the larger threat. As intrigues roil the heavens, a tiny Mesopotamian town becomes ground-zero for this fantasy fiction retelling of mankind's most epic story about the battle between good and evil … the clash of empires and ideologies … and the greatest superhero to ever walk the Earth. The Archangel Michael.

The Sword of the Gods series is a Science-Fantasy retelling of the myth of fallen angels, told in the 'epic' style of Game of Thrones, Dune, and Outlander. It contains religious blasphemy, sex and violence which may be upsetting to some readers.

This book is NOT Christian fiction.

The Chosen One

    About the Author

    Anna Erishkigal is an attorney who writes fantasy fiction under a pen-name so her colleagues don't question whether her legal pleadings are fantasy fiction as well. Much of law, it turns out, -is- fantasy fiction. Lawyers just prefer to call it 'zealously representing your client.' Seeing the dark underbelly of life makes for some interesting fictional characters. The kind you either want to incarcerate, or run home and write about. In fiction, you can fudge facts without worrying too much about the truth. In legal pleadings, if your client lies to you, you look stupid in front of the judge. At least in fiction, if a character becomes troublesome, you can always kill them off.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Long!! 24 Oct. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Imaginative, creative storyline which seems pretty unique in the world of scifi.

    I found the book tone extremely drawn out, it's a 250 page book over 450 pages, and in the end I suffered through the last 200 pages to find out the ending, only to find that Anna has fallen into the trap of so many authors and decided to extend the story to another book.

    It's a shame, because the plot is actually compelling otherwise.

    It is a long book, but worth reading to the end, it is a nice twist on the war in heaven.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Different . . . 12 April 2014
    By SteveR
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Different just about sums it up, a different slant on characters etc. taken from the Bible. Other than that attempt at originality, it wasn't anything I haven't read before.

    Will I read anymore? No the first 1/4 of the book was more than enough for me - will pass on more.
