Welcome to Tuesday 13th October, and being a Tuesday, that means it’s time for another book blast/blog/b…. something beginning with B!
First up, how about some Biblical fantasy from Sabrina Oyinloye?
Remiel is both a fallen Watcher and an Archangel in the apocryphal Book of Enoch. The watchers are angels dispatched to Earth to watch over the humans. They soon begin to lust for human women and, at the prodding of their leader Samyaza, defect en masse to instruct humanity and procreate among them criminally. For this, the watchers were bound ‘In the valleys of the Earth’ until Judgment Day.
In this first series of the realm surfer, the condemned fallen angels found their way out of their bondage and sought revenge over Ramiel for his betrayal. Would they succeed?
