Rise of the Fallen
April 2013 release: a press release about Rise of the Fallen from Magabala Books.
A compelling fantasy novel weaved with magic, mystery and seduction
Rise of the Fallen is a young adult paranormal romance, the first in a series of novels with demons, angels and elementals at war for power. This contemporary, super-sharp story with sardonic humour features a feisty main character in Emilie and a love triangle. The battles take place in familiar settings: shopping malls, street corners, the Australian bushland and up and down the Queensland coast. Emilie, fire elemental, and Cael, water elemental, are wanted by the entire demonic realm. Lying low in the human realm – as students at a Brisbane school – Emilie encounters the mysterious and charming Soul, and soon finds herself lost in the very world she’s been running from for centuries.
About the Sequel
The angels and demons are at war. The prize: the human realm. As Emilie discovers neither sides care how many human lives are lost as they seek control, she and Cael embark on a journey to gather the elementals together in order to make a stand.
