This is a collection of three novels told from the point of view of an angel. In the first novel, the angel Darian is sent to earth after he questions God about why Satan and the fallen angels were cast out of the Kingdom. He is sent to earth to see the evil they have done firsthand, and encounters many people and angels there as he struggles about whether to join the rebellion or not.
The book was obvioulsy written by a very funadmentalist christian and if you are of that stripe and believe in hellfire awaiting non-Christians and that homosexuality and abortion are abominations, this should be right up your ally.
If you are not a fundamentalist Christian, you will at least learn about how such people think.
I only read the first book, and found it pretty offensive from a non-Christian standpoint. But I have heard from Christian friends who love this collection of books.
So I guess it depends on your view going into it.
Either way, it makes one think.
3 books in 1. Good read from an angels point of view.
This is a fire and brimstone book and has fundamentalist views. An Angel who is uncertain of God's decision to force Lucifer from heaven is sent down to earth by God to make his final decision. The angel observes "atrocities" that include homosexuality, abortion, drugs, politics, animal testing, and so on. I enjoyed this book for what it was. I think Elwood did a tremendous job in gathering up things that Christians are against and making them appear heinous and sinful
This book is told from the point of view of a Fallen Angel named "Observer". He's under the impression that because he's only recording events and hasn't actually participated, he shouldn't be where he is. In the end, he finds out this is where he belongs. This one does have condemnation of homosexuality, abortion, and drugs; however, it focuses more on wrong-doing of various religions and the commercialism of Christianity. Scathing hatred in this one, which I guess could only be expected with a 'demon' narrating.
Stedfast: Guardian Angel
Stedfast is a guardian angel, assigned to various people throughout time to watch over them during their last hours/days of their lives. He narrates each persons losses and triumphs to the reader. This one is not so heavy on the sin future as much as it is with redemption. The last part of this book involves the rapture.
An interesting trilogy from the point of view of angels.
