Title: Cain: Rage of Angels (Book 2)
Author: Elias Raven
Release Date: October 25th
Cover Designer: Jessica Hildreth
Genre: Paranormal Romance/Suspense
Elias never saw it coming. The deception had been flawless. He had looked into the dark eyes of his half-brother Qaylin. The torrent of anger and rage rose from the dark abyss of his soul at what this bastard had done. It was unlike anything he had ever felt before or since… A million times a million Cains screamed across the Heavens. Their voices echoed in his head demanding the blood of the betrayer, Qaylin!
Elias knew it was time he stopped fighting from a position of weakness. He had to get up and take the fight to the enemy’s doorstep and he only had a small window of time to do so. He would have to strike while they thought he was beaten, then stand toe to toe against the forces of Hell itself. Somehow he had to even the odds and give him and his men a fighting chance to win. But his ancient enemies were powerful. It appeared as though the heavens had been eerily quiet as if the matters of men no longer mattered to the angelic host. It seemed Lucifer had full dominion over this mortal coil. If that was so, what chance did Elias and his men have against such an enemy?
“The Rage of Angels” is the explosive second book in the CAIN series.
How do I begin? First it started with Cain – Sins of the Father and I was blown away with that story of eternal love and Heaven and Hell. Wow!! Just Wow! And then the waiting for this book began. When it finally landed in my Kindle I immediately started reading. Was the plot easy to follow? Well if you can keep up with all the twist and turns and mysteries of this of this story, then yes it was easy to follow. The plot line for this book is the oldest story in biblical history, but Elias Raven makes it his own story in such a way that you can’t imagine it any other way. This book is less of a love story and more of a story of battle and war, or plots and deception, which is something I never thought would interest me but it certainly has.
The characters are many and each has his own back story, which Elias does a fine job of weaving them into his tale of good and evil. I was so enthralled that meals were missed, sleep was deprived, I couldn’t stop reading just one more chapter. I’ve never read a book like this before, one that had so many points of view and it totally worked for me. I am definitely a new fan of this Author and I look forward to the hopefully final chapter in this series.
I ran the gamut of emotions here, from grief to a giggle, it was all so captivating. If you read Cain – Sins of the Father, then you know Elias is stretched in every direction trying to figure out how to solve this mystery of his brother and how to save Genevieve. Each chapter bringing him closer and closer, it was a thrilling read.
Lastly I wanted to say that I can tell that the Author did his research and is himself well read. The poems between each chapter were different and really cool to read, each giving their own part or clue to the story. Not a single eye rolling moment here, I loved it!! Elias Raven is getting another 5-star review from this girl/fan. Bravo Elias! Well done!
Elias~ I didn't get it, it was like my brain at that moment had stopped functioning.
Like it was made of glass and had shattered into a million tiny fragments
of images and emotion painted across the television screen as I watched
the flames burn. My empire was on fire! G and Parker were dead! My mother
was bitter and my brother had just sliced me open from head to toe with
a katana of raw emotion playing me like Nero while Rome burned.
I screamed so loudly everyone in the house came running, beating on the
doors to the den. The tears exploded out of me like a fountain! I dropped
to my knees in front of my father, in front of the screen unable to comprehend
the ass kicking I was taking from this man.
My dad waited looking down at his hands, unable to even comprehend
but at the same time feeling everything. He was part of me after all.
My cell phone chimed as my mother and Khyentse calling over and over again
I slammed my fists into the floor until my hands started to bleed, but I didn't care.
I wasn't feeling it, I was pain, I was anger, I was the flame, my emotions, my feelings everything was a white-hot poker of anger.
I felt like a cyclone of rage as I stood up. I have never ever wanted to kill before,
but at that moment me.. us... were all in unison. Qaylin was a dead man. I was going
to personally kill him and I was going to look him right in the eye when I did it
so he knew who did it, just like when he killed my father.. Like when he killed me.
I was going to do it cold blooded too. I wasn't going to use a sniper, I was going to fight him hand to hand, I was going to beat him, break him until he was a bloody mess
and still it wasn't going to give me satisfaction.. But at the same time, it was going to
feel oh so fucking good.
