Book Review Express 5 Star Review Corner brings you
“Cain – Rage of Angels” Book 2 in The Cain Series by Elias Raven! (review below)
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.
You know how most of the time the squeal never lives up to the original movie, or at times when a book ends on a cliffie the next book just doesn’t quite measure up? Well that is not the case here. Just WOW. I think I was even more blown away with Cain – Rage of Angels (book 2) than I was Cain – Sins of the Father. I have to admit I honestly didn’t see how this book could top the first one but amazingly it has – at least for me. Not only in the story-line but in the mechanics of the book. I am not sure if mechanics is the appropriate term but this book shows a marked growth in the author’s writing abilities. Mr. Raven’s ability to tell a story was never in doubt, at least not to me, but the way this book is written, I as the reader felt every page as I read it. I felt the pain, the sorrow, the horrors and the joy right along with the characters. I felt the overall sense of helplessness and empowerment that was woven throughout the entire book.
For a book of this type to have such a “believability” quality is simply amazing to me as well. I finished the book and simply sat staring and wondering now what? Where does such a remarkable storyline go from here without losing it’s grip (because that is exactly what this book will do; grip your heart, your mind and your imagination). I honestly don’t have an answer for that yet, but I have no doubt Mr. Raven does and this reader will be standing at the front of the line to see just where he goes with it from here.
2 Thumbs Up for an Awesome Book and series that is a MUST read.
Elias Raven was born and raised in Los Angeles. He’s an avid reader with a lifelong passion for writing. He’s a storyteller, a poet and a talented musician with an amazing voice. Oh, and let’s not forget an amazing cook!
As a young boy he spent many summers reading classics such as “The Adventures of Sherlock Homes” and “The White Company” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. His creativity was constantly being pushed as he learned more and more about the world around him. His taste in literature spanned from classics to science fiction/fantasy. He expanded his taste devouring everything from William Blake to Milton, Dante, Baudelaire, Arthur Rimbaud, T.S. Elliot, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Khalil Gibran, William Carlos Williams, Ezra Pound, Paul Verlaine, Walt Whitman, Alan Ginsburg, Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, Carl Sandburg, Dylan Thomas, and Jim Morrison. These inspirations and his sheer love for reading had him take pen to paper around the age of 20.
Did I mention he’s a Musician? …You can often find him playing his guitars (both electric and acoustic) and keyboards and singing (4 octave ranges) in his home studio. He’s a classically trained music aficionado -trained early on by Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart, Hayden, Liszt, as well as Big Band, Jazz and Rag Time. Spending time with his father at the Los Angeles Philharmonic; experiencing his first orchestra concert at the age of 9.
Elias the Gourmet Cook…Oh My!…His Japanese mother and grandmother trained him very well in fine culinary skills both in cooking and food appreciation from all over the world such as Italian, Indian, Moroccan, Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Hawaiian, Pilipino, Greek, and Polish.
When Elias is not reading, writing, composing music or cooking…he can be found listening to music, playing games, hanging out with his kids. He enjoys going to concerts, going on culinary adventures, sightseeing, spending the day at the beach or in the mountains…just doing something adventurous!
