Fallen Legion by Laura Kreitzer


Genre: Paranormal Romance
Series: Timeless #4
Publisher: Revolution Publishing inc.
Buy the book: Amazon | Smashwords
Source: I received an ecopy from the publisher

The full force of the Empyrean Guard leaves Gabriella trembling where she stands. Even with the Fallen at her back, she lacks the proper training and knowledge to win the inevitable Angelic War. In the Timeless Oblivion, Gabriella seeks the advice of the one person who’s never failed her and comes back with more than she bargained for. Gabriella must do the unthinkable: break the most important law the Celestial Gods decreed thousands of years ago to protect the angels. Now that she’s crossed the line, will she find a way to save the angels? Or has she doomed them all?


Fallen Legion is the 4th book in the Timeless series. I am not a big fan of reading books out of order. But I already read Phantom Universe (The Summer Chronicles) by Laura Kreitzer, which I really enjoyed, so I thought I’d take a gamble. And I did not regret this.

I dislike word processors in general when it comes to creative writing. I see the creative process as personal, and the keyboard simply doesn't seem personal to me. There's too much mechanism between me and the work when I try to use the computer to do my first drafts. I can't touch the work, can't feel it. It's just electrons on a screen without substance. That's why I prefer to write all my initial drafts longhand. I can actually feel the flow of the work at the end of the pen, the pressure against the page is natural and subtly satisfying. I feel the transfer of idea from my mind to the page is more true to the spirit of the work.

Quirks of an Implied Author 

It’s 5:30 in the morning.
There is a routine: walk into the office, turn on the desk lamp, power up the Toshiba.
Down the hall, a motor hums. The kitchen beckons. Starbucks coffee streams from Kuerig to insulated mug.

Add Splenda.
