So I'm not going there.
Any words I could use to describe the emotions Cole's words provoke would be totally inefficient.
So I'm not going there.
My feelings for Gabriel Hart, I wish I had Cole's way with words to describe how I hurt for him. I felt his pain. I sensed his hollow heart. I wanted to take away his mental pain and his physical pain.
This novella is a tiny nugget of the treasure trove that can be found in The Lost. Here is one black heart. There are two. Flashes of boot, hair, pale skin. Two souls meant to meet.
My clippings of wonder:
"There is no such thing as 'right.' There is only who deserves pain, and who doesn't."
"Your scars cut away the monster to reveal the man. My scars killed the man...and left only the monster. And the monster understands that sometimes, pain is the only way out."
"He needed to be around someone who remembered her, remembered them before they were broken toy soldiers, scattered in pieces on a grimy, bloodstained floor."
"Silence should be peaceful. Silence should be calming. Silence should bring healing. But sometimes, silence was just drawing a breath before a scream."
"Sometimes he felt like he was waiting not to die, but for the world to end."
"In the dark like that, he wasn't Gabriel Hart, and so Gabriel Hart didn't have to feel shame. He was just a nameless shade, scrabbling and hungry, a ghost without a name."
The Fallen comes with warnings. I'll make no bones about it, it deals with suicide. There are no triggers there for me, I see sunshine. If I can share my sunshine I can and I will.
“There was nothing left to fight but himself.”
It's no secret that Cole McCade's writing works for me: through his prose, he literally lifts you up and drops you to into the worlds he creates. You experience the atmosphere of his settings and the emotion his characters go through, and Gabriel Hart is no different; his story is heart-wrenching yet heart-warming and whilst he may be broken, he is by no means weak.
“Life was all or nothing. Creation or destruction, and little in between.”
I devoured this in one sitting. Novellas often leave me wanting that bit more but this wasn't the case; The Fallen grabbed me in the opening chapter and held on tight throughout, made me cry and smile and the only more I'm left wanting is of Priest (and Maxi and Gary because I'm just greedy and they themselves are superb characters). Whether you've read The Lost or not, this is a book I highly recommend.

I've just purchased the next novel, 'The Found' - a clear indication of my opinion of the series.
Leigh and Gabriel's story was already so fulfilling, but seeing this backtracking view into the man we know in The Lost startled me in every good way possible. The many facets of Gabriel Hart are quite daunting. I was so wanting to devour The Fallen that I consciously made sure I paced my reading and took in every detail. Cole McCade does details well, if you haven’t noticed.
While much of this may be difficult to endure, take the leap knowing what comes in The Lost. Perhaps that will ease your heart as you read along. It did mine. Even still, my heart fracking broke. Cole’s words chipped away at it until it shattered. But then? Then, it found its way to mend again.
This story, whether you can directly relate or not, will resonate in the most intriguing ways. I laughed. I smiled. I melted. I cried. I CRIED. I believe this may be redundant from my previous reviews of Cole’s writing, but the little things are what bring it all together for me. And it’s the little things that Cole McCade does so bloody well. The imagery always astounds me. The characters, all of them, always leave me wanting more. The personal touches that leap from the page always cause me to fill with every shade of emotion.
This beautifully broken story about a beautifully broken man is worth your time. The ups and downs of life and the light that not everyone hopes to find… Through the eyes of Gabriel Hart, The Fallen is the dark journey of a man starting over. Woven through culture, gut-wrenching reality, and overwhelming strength, you learn so much more about the man we came to love already. And somehow? End up loving him more. After I finished The Fallen, I jumped into a reread of The Lost: A Crow City Novel. I just had to.
I cannot wait for Priest in The Found: A Crow City Novel.
► I loved all of the characters, Tybalt included!
It's also a good look at Priest which comes in handy when reading the next book.
