Meet Zadkiel

She could tell he was one of the Archangels, just by looking at him. Something about the way he held his head; about the way he folded his arms across his chest – and looked utterly unfazed by everything happening around him. Admittedly, the sword hanging from his waist and the glowing sigil on his wrist helped.

The symbol was familiar, but even if that hadn’t given him away, the scent that hung around him, cutting through the smoke, probably would have done. He smelled like cut grass and tomato leaves, like old books and poster paint, like tarmac baking in the sun. He smelled like the past, like childhood. Like memories.

She was standing in front of Zadkiel.

REBELLION extract

The Bookwhales have put REBELLION under their spotlight, and are also hosting an exclusive extract from the book. Head on over to their site to meet the Archangel Zadkiel and catch a first glimpse of No Man’s Land…

 

Zadkiel frowned, closing his eyes, and the lines on his face deepened. “The things these people remember, Michael. The things they’ve seen. The Fallen aren’t running. They’re taunting us. The war’s not over, it just escalated. I didn’t even know that was possible! They’re not content with the scraps any longer. They want it all. And we’ve made sure that they have absolutely nothing to lose.”

Meet Gabriel…

“When the lights go out and the world stops, at the end of time, and there’s nothing left but dust and ash and embers… Gabriel will still be standing there with blood on his hands.”

Meet Michael…

“I’m a soldier, child. A very good one.

And I was right.”
