Alizel's Song is the telling of one man's version of the how the universe was created and interpretation of the bible. How the war in Heaven was started and who started it and why. It tells of all the Angles of who they were and what their jobs and place were. There were only a few of the Angels who knew what their jobs were and what their purpose was. The highest ranking angels were the Seraphim known as the "flaming ones". They were a secretive and powerful group of angels whom no one ever saw much of. They kept to themselves never socializing with the other angels. There was no way to mistake them for any other angel because they wore platinum sashes with a crimson "S". The Seraphim was led by Luciferel. They never held an election that would make him the leader. It just seemed like the right thing to do. It just felt like that was his job and all the angels followed his command without question.
The Cherubim were next in line to the Seraphim. It was said that they had the most knowledge and that they completely knew the mind of God. If any of the angels ever wanted to know anything the Cherubim were the ones to go to that is if they would see you. I kind of got the feeling that the Cherubim thought they were above all the other angels because they had more knowledge than anyone else. They didn't have time for the other angels. They were supposedly so smart that they probably couldn't understand the other angels and just thought they were speaking gibberish most of the time or it may have just seemed that way to them. They were easy to recognize by their white sashes with a golden "C" on it and it was said that these angels had four faces and wings.
Next in line were the Thrones there were only twelve of them. It had been said that the Thrones were far above the other angels and had a special task but no one knew what this task was and it was not because of not asking. The Thrones wore earthly brown sashes with a green "T" and they served as instructors to the other angels.
Next in line were the Virtues they were always running around trying to figure out what their job was. They wore golden sashes with a white "V".
Next in line were the Powers. They were the gatekeepers and Azazel was their chief. They wore golden armor and red sashes.
Next in line were the Principalities their job was to watch over a hundred angels. They wore white sashes with a blue "P".
Next are the Archangels who watched over ten angels along with the Unranked. They wore white sashes with a green letter "A".
Next in line were the Unranked whom most didn't know what their job was or what their purpose was. If any of the higher ranking angels knew they weren't telling.
Angels didn't have to worry about anything like food, water or shelter. All of their needs were taken care of by the radiant energy of the Father. They never had to worry about sleeping, eating or diseases because they shared everything. Angels had no concept of time. If they sat down to look at a flower to watch it grow or just to admire its beauty they could have been there for a couple of minutes or a thousand years they didn't know. They had been doing the same things for fifteen billion earth years.
Angels were not allowed to leave Heaven. They had to stay in their realm. Making sure that this happened was part of the Powers job watching the borders of Heaven making sure no one got in or out. One day the angels got worried that with God building the universe that there would be others from the planets that he was creating would try to get into Heaven or maybe even someone from the inside would attack them. Or what if an angel got by them and went to earth to stop God's plan. Angels were always trying to get by them to go make their own mark in the world. Then the angels got this idea to ask God to make them a weapon so they could learn to use it and defend their selves.
Is this why the war started? Verin thinks God doesn't know what he is doing that is the reason it is taking him so long to create the world or the earth. Verin thinks someone else needs to step in and take over. That maybe someone else knows what to do. God created the entire world but he doesn't know what to do with it now that he has created it. The angels couldn't create the world because they didn't exist. Who created or made God? How did he come into existence? God created the angels, humans and what about the other planets or the rest of the universe? He created angels for Heaven and humans for earth right? So what about the rest of the universe? Are there other life form created in God's image? God, Angels and humans all supposedly have a head, two arms and two legs although they look different and angels have wings and humans do not. So what lives in the rest of the universe? Did God just create other planets because he was bored without any purpose to it at all? Why put life created in his image on one planet and not put life created in his image on the other planets. Why create them if not for the same purpose?
I found this an enjoyable story to what is sure to be an engaging series with easy to read prose. I also liked the fact that the author changed the name of Lucifer to Lucifereal, at least in the beginning, and he takes the name of Lucifer in the end when he turns into the Prince of Darkness we all know him to be from the Bible. I also loved that the author took the time to explain the hierarchy of Heaven for the reader: the Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones, Virtues, Powers, Principalities, Archangels, and Unranked. Knowing all this comes in handy at the end of the novel when the war in Heaven begins.
I highly recommend this book and look forward to the next one in the series.
