I voted for this book in the Kindle Scout campaign, thinking that an alternative take on the Christian creation myth sounded interesting, despite the fact that I’m not Christian myself. Unfortunately I hadn’t read the preview, just the description, and if I had I most likely would not have voted for this book – the first chapter is a bit rambling, which nearly made me want to put it down there and then. Yet, I did, and it won, so I decided to give it a fair reading.

You don’t really need to have prior knowledge of the Christian creation myth to be able to get into this book, but what you do need is a lot of patience. I’ve already mentioned how the first chapter is a bit rambling, quite boring until the first conversations come in. Yet there are still several interesting parts. The whole Heavenly City part and its inhabitants is very human, and there are “logical” explanations for the existence and set up of Hell, as well as how to get there, and the connections between the City, Earth, and Hell. Yet the bit that somewhat confused and frustrated me the most is that it is said that all Heavenly beings, the different types of angels, have a predisposition to do good, meaning that all angels are inherently good, yet it doesn’t prevent them from doing bad things or becoming evil. Also, the apparently intelligent do very stupid things and make stupid decisions. They are also supposed to be near “emotionless”, the archangels and even the angels, with only the “powers” (a type of warrior angel) having free emotions. Yet, there is a lot of emotion play that goes on, lots of reactions based on emotions, like anger, shouting, fighting, etc. As I said, very “human”.

The story itself revolves around one young angel’s, power’s, journey.

The story began with a colorful array of descriptive text that could easily be imagined. A meeting of the council of archangels, the hosts of Heaven, had been arranged to discuss a proposed new plan from Adonai, their leader. Adonai's plan - 'The Plan of Creation' was for the creation of 'humans' who would live on 'earth', but unlike the archangels the 'humans' would be given the choice of choosing between good and evil without knowing the difference. Lord Lucifer was strongly against this as he believed this would create an unruly, dangerous world, causing chaos and potential danger to the heavenly world.

A debate in the palace square had been arranged for everyone by Lord Lucifer and his team to take place before he sat with the coucil of archangels again to finally decide on Adonai's plan, knowing they would go ahead and approve it. Yet the debate did not go to plan, or did it? Rocks were thrown, chaos begins and war starts!

Ramael, second in command in the army of Heaven, and Adryel, a secretary of the council, are paired and very much in love, yet they potentially see themselves on different sides of the debate due to loyalty. Adryel understands Lord Lucifer's logic but does not agree with his methods and finds herself at his side trying to persuade him to use peaceful alternatives, she also has some nagging doubts in her mind on his ulterior motives. Little does she know that she is simply a pawn in his sly and calculated game for power. An evil lie is told which changes Adryel's life and believes the rules have changed, seeing herself and Lord Lucifer's team banished to the burning pit of hell. What will happen with the humans? Who will win the war? Will Ramael and Adryel's love now end?

I am a huge fan of David Burnett so when this book was offered to me I could not wait to read it. In true Burnett style I was pulled right in from the very beginning and could not wait to keep reading. Between Heaven and Hell is a different type of story than I usually read and is different from the other books of David Burnett’s that I have read.

Adryel is an angel rebelling against God’s creation. When faced with the choice of believing that creation is a good thing or following Lucifer’s path Adryel chooses Lucifer. I found it interesting how she talked herself into believe what Lucifer was telling his followers. I could feel the deceit, I wanted to tell her not to believe, yet… she had to. She had to do what she felt was right.

When Adryel was on Earth, seeing the world for the first time, meeting humans, seeing animals, and tasting the fruits I could feel her amazement at all the God had created. I imagined what I would have felt had I been in her place. The awe, the wonder, and the not knowing all of what she was seeing was perfectly portrayed.

David Burnett wrote an eye opening, thought provoking story. The ending was my most favorite.

This book is unusual from Mr. Burnett's typical book that I read. It is a unique read. Though I am not religious, this book gives me more knowledge from the book of Genesis and the beginning. It is a very interesting read.

The devil always disguise but he will never win. Adryel is such a beautiful angel but she outcast the power of Lucifer. It is a constant battle in real life to choose good from evil. We always picked the good but sometimes we got lost in choosing the evil. Temptation is so hard to resist.
I loved reading this book. It gives me views what the "pit" is all about. It is scary to get there in the other life. We have to choose the right path to avoid going to the big pit.

This book is fun to read. If you like to read religion and fantasy then Between Heaven And Hell is one amazing book to read.
