The Mortal Plane has long been divided among the servants of Light and Darkness, suffering a thousand years of atrocity by both sides. When one god finally rose up and slew another, The Pact was formed, forestalling any further damage to the realms of men. But now, over the last few decades, signs of the Demons and their mindless Accursed minions have dwindled to an all-time low. It seems that after a thousand years of conflict the Gods of Light and the Gods of Darkness have finally tired of the bloody war. Or have they? It falls to Trent, a Paladin of the Light with a soul torn with an impossible and unrequited love for his commander and scarred by a childhood filled with despair and pain, to travel beyond the walls of the city to discover what has become of humanity's ancestral enemy. Only with his closest friend Devin by his side can Trent hope to keep from losing himself. Together the two men track a horde of Demons to a secret that will rock the Mortal Plane to its very foundations.

“Wrath of the Fallen” by Kristopher Jerome was given to me by Jerome himself. We met at a social media seminar. When he found out that I am a book blogger, he asked if I was willing to take a look at his book. So here is my review and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.

The Plot –

The plot of “Wrath of the Fallen” has a bit of a slow start. The story begins by introducing all the characters. I feel like the pace would have moved a bit faster if it wasn’t all at the beginning. The story concept and plot was well done. I think Jerome has a lot of interesting ideas that he writes into the story.

The Writing –

The writing was quite well. Jerome has a wonderful writing style. I think the writing style was a lot better in the first half of the book. The editing of this story could have been a bit better. There are some errors that could have been avoided with better editing. There were grammatical errors that were a bit distracting.

The Ending –

The ending of “Wrath of the Fallen” was a bit rushed. I feel like some of the plot points were dropped. I do hope that the loose ends will be picked up in book two. I hope the resolutions in book two will be a bit better too.

Wrap Up –

“Wrath of the Fallen” by Kristopher Jerome is a great debut novel. I am looking forward to seeing what happens next.
