Adriel is a fallen angel, who has landed on Earth with nowhere to go. The first person he meets is Addy, a feisty 22-year-old, who is searching for her brother Reed. With the same burn marks as Reed’s kidnapper, Adriel could easily be involved with Reed’s disappearance.
After an initial scuffle, Adriel realizes he can help her find Reed, especially when she finds out she’s Satan’s daughter and he wants her to recruit minions for his army. If they don’t find a way through this mess, not only will Addy lose her brother Reed, but Earth will never be the same again.
There were a couple of things I didn’t love about Divinity Falling. Sometimes Addy is too quick to anger and lashes out at her best friend Lizzy for no reason, but she’s in a very stressful situation and people aren’t always calm and rational. The story is told in alternating viewpoints between Addy and Adriel, but somewhere in the second half, some of the scenes started to be told from each of their viewpoints, which I think was unnecessary to repeat the scene, as not much had changed from each viewpoint.
There’s a lot to love about Dinivinty Falling. In addition to being feisty, Addy is a strong main character who isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty doing what she thinks is best for her and her brother. She didn’t have the best upbringing and she came out strong in the end, despite the horrible parentage. Our characters are multi-dimensional and the storyline is really fun. I think there’s definitely more in store for Addy and Adriel, and I would definitely love to read it.
