The oldest of the archangels was Satanel who became Satan after he was cast out of heaven. Satan was followed by his twin brother, Sandalphon who was known among men as Odin. Another set of twins, Raziel who was known as Zeus and Jophiel who was named by mortals Poseidon, followed. Odin, Zeus and Poseidon, came to earth to battle Satan, where they were worshiped as gods of the old world.
Next were born Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Uriel, “The Faithful.” Finally, Zadkiel, Camael, Sachiel and Azazyel, “The Unvaliant” were born. These last four archangels remained neutral in the War in Heaven. As they refused to take up arms to fight Satan and his followers, they and their legions were later cast out, but not into Hell.
Azazyel was one of two hundred angels sent to watch over the children of Adam and Eve in the years before the flood. They were called “The Watchers.” The Watchers broke God’s laws and sinned by taking mortal wives and for teaching them forbidden secrets. The Watcher’s part-angel children were called the “Nephilim.” Some became giants; others became heroes of myth and men of great renown, such as Hercules, Achilles, Beowulf, and Perseus.
Azazyel (being an archangel) was held to a higher standard, and for his crimes he was buried alive. The mother of Azazyel’s unborn child married Ham (the youngest son of Noah) and was thus saved from the flood upon the ark.
Azazyel’s bloodline periodically manifests remarkable powers and abilities in his descendants. During the Great Flood, the single continent, Pangea, was broken up and the appearance of the lands changed, so that not even the other archangels now know where Azazyel is buried.
Satan seeks for Azazyel to recruit him to his army in his quest to seize the throne of heaven from their father.
The vampires seek Azazyel for his blood. They hope that in his weakened state, he will be an easy target and that his blood will give them the power of flight.
Gabriel and Raphael seek their archangel brothers to try and enlist them into God’s army before the Battle of Armageddon. Only the last Scions of Azazyel have the power to find him. Gabriel and Raphael must find and protect the children of Azazyel or all may be lost.
Scions of Azazyel is an incredible, action-packed mythology inspired novel that will take its readers on a thrilling, unforgettable journey. This book may be aimed at children and young adults, but if you adore mythology just like me, then you will fall madly in love with this book! It is a breath-taking novel that is full of adventure and legends galore; there is enough brilliance throughout this book to keep the reader entertained and engrossed for hours on end… I know I was!
The story of Scions of Azazyel is an in-depth story packed full of mythology, legends and bible references. It may be a significant book, but the compelling nature of it means that you do not mind, trust me, readers, it is worth the read! Usually I would let you readers know what the book is about but the blurb of the book (posted above) does an excellent job of this so I would implore all of you lovely readers to read about it at the top of my review!
Scions of Azazyel is an enthralling read that takes the reader on a journey through many different, fascinating subjects. I particularly loved learning about fallen angels and the treatment of these angels. I learnt quite a lot; it may by mythology, but I believe it is essential to learn things. Scions of Azazyel throws the reader right into the story; I found that this book was fast-paced from the get-go and never once did it become stagnant. It flowed the whole way perfectly out, and this is all thanks to the excellent writer, Robert Kenneth Wheeler Jr.
Wheeler is a fantastic writer whose words are descriptive as well as rich. They jump right off the page and into the reader’s mind, and heart, some scenes of his were so incredibly descriptive that I felt as if I was right there at the moment. He managed to transport me to an intriguing dystopian world, and it was thrilling! I relished in this book and did not want it to end. As I neared the end I was so sad because I did not want it to end, a part of me wanted it to because I wanted to know what was going to happen! But mostly I loved it too much to want it to end. Wheeler can only be described as a talented wordsmith; literature is an art and Wheeler has nailed this, he knows how to evoke a feeling or reaction in his readers, and that is an attribute I love in an author. He is a passionate, vivid writer who will keep you entertained for hours on end!
To conclude my thoughts on the thrilling Scions of Azayel; I would say if you want to read an unforgettable book that will take you on an epic journey then this brilliant book is for you.
