The Fallen Angle is the second book in The Harbinger of Doom Saga and like the first book, The Gateway, it is a fast paced, action pack story that I could not put down. In fact I read it in one sitting and again was only disappointed by the fact it came to an end. The charactors created by Glenn G. Thater are easy to follow and identify with. The story line flows seamlessly from the first book to this one and I can't wait to read the next book. This is a great read and I highly recommend it.

“The Fallen Angle” picks up where “The Gateway” left off and raises excitement to a whole new level. In this case the sequel exceeds the original. "The Gateway" is great but "The Fallen Angle” is a must read.
