Very interesting and unique take on sci-fi and fantasy. The book takes place in the distant future in Samaria, a world where angels and humans co-exist and many worship a mysterious being know as Jovah. Political intrigue abounds as Raphael, the reigning archangel, tries to hang on to his power by any devious means possible. Meanwhile, Gabriel, the next angel in line for the position, has his hands full trying to establish peace, harmony and equality among the squabbling factions while also trying to find then appease, Rachel, the life-mate and angelica, Jovah has chosen for him. Great read!
