Publisher's Summary

The Third Heaven: The Rise of Fallen Stars is book one of a three part series that tells of the fascinating story of the fall of Lucifer. Lucifer, God's perfect creation and who dwelt in his very presence, walked in the midst of the stones of fire. Yet rose up to betray the Lord and bring Heaven itself to civil war. Many tales have referenced this great angelic war but few have sought to explore the dynamic relationships between God and the angelic hosts. Why did a third of heaven seek to overthrow their creator?
See Lucifer and his actions in a light never before seen. Journey back to the beginning, and see the drama unfold before your eyes: As allegiances are broken; choices made, and why all of creation waits for the manifestation of the sons of God. The prequel to the Bible is here!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I really loved the first 2/3 of this book. The descriptions of the different orders of angels were very clever: Lucifer's order of Draco (Dragon) angels, the silent and invisible Gregori (which turn out to actually be the inspiration for the concept of ghosts) and the Ophanim (Daniel's "Wheels within wheels") which can create "force fields" of lightning, all captured my imagination. The descriptions of Charon (AKA the Grim Reaper) as well the organic, hungry and burning Mountain of Hell were absolutely terrifying. The idea that Ladders to Heaver (Jacob's Ladder) consisted of wormholes that passed between Heaven, Space and Earth was also interesting.So why the 1-Star Review? Because the last third of this book is absolute blasphemy against Christianity. I won't give away the specifics, but Satan actually manages to ascend to having a part of God's power and physically injures the person that we're supposed to accept as being the King of Heaven. The Bible is very clear on the fact that God is the only one who could ever wield His power and that Lucifer can never triumph against God in any way because the devil has no power that He does not allow him to (temporarily) have. I recommend avoiding this one, or, if you don't, at least skipping Act 3.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this to a friend who who just wants a great read or who has a faith that may want a "What If" look.

What did you like best about this story?

The honesty of the author at the beginning of the book. That world that he crafted of what "could have happened", specifically the depth of friendship between Michael and Lucifer and the power of each choice they and we must make.

What does Angelo Di Loreto bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He did an amazing job giving the characters a life distinctly their own. I think that "EL" sounds a bit like Sean Connery LOL

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I have not even finished yet, however I have a reaffirmation of our value to God as individuals and as a Human Race, despite our flaws and failures.

Any additional comments?

Give the Third Heaven a try and look beyond the visible world back through time and most of all, ask yourself even if these specific events are not true, is there a GOD that we will all answer to one day and will our pride and arrogance destroy us as individuals both here and in eternity? Only you can decide what you will do with the question of GOD.
I hope the next one will be out soon!
