The mark of a good work of fiction is how it can mirror reality so closely as to confuse the reader about whether it is real or not real. Author Bolko Zimmer has created a delicious piece of fiction with "Angelic Warfare: The Stones of Fire" that so closely mirrors stories from the Bible, including the creation of Heaven and Earth and Lucifer’s eviction from Heaven that sometimes I had to check myself to remember that this was fiction. Recently I began reading some of the old classics by Dickens and Austen and the writing of "Angelic Warfare" is so strong and well-written that it reminds me of the style of the old classics.

In "Angelic Warfare: The Stones of Fire", Zimmer presents the age old battle between good and evil, using the retelling of the fall of man in the Garden of Eden and taking us through history. Bad guy Lucifer, who is conceited and rebellious, takes on Michael the Archangel and you are just going to have to read the story to find out who wins. Characters are cleverly named, such as the Supreme Spirit, the Ancient Spirit, and the Anointed Spirit who were three individuals as well as one composite of the three divine beings. Hmmm, sounds like anyone else we know? Also in the story are Enoch, Noah, and Methuselah, just to name a few, plus some seraphim, cherubim, and other beings. It is a good story that is very well-written and will engage both secular and Christian readers alike.
