“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.
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.
