Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite

There is a sizable percentage of the American public that is interested in and fascinated by anything to do with Angels. In a country that is more or less Christian in heritage and culture, these celestial beings hold a special place in most hearts and imaginations. Revelation (Book 1 of the Seraphim Trilogy) by B.E. Van Loon is a welcome addition to Angelic lore. At around 260 pages, it is not too long and wordy as a lot of books in this genre seem to be, but it is a satisfying, well written look into the world of the heavenly host. The Seraph are, of course, the stars of this tale, but there are plenty of very interesting human characters that make this an emotional and convincing story about the struggles and despair of modern big city life.

From a brilliant surgeon who has lost his faith, his family, and maybe his soul, to a runaway who stumbles into a spiritual nightmare too horrible to comprehend, Revelation is full of characters you are compelled to cheer on or cry over. B.E. Van Loon is very good at portraying the bleak jungle that a modern city can become, while at the same time showing us that there is hope even for those who seem to have fallen the farthest. I chose this book to get the author's take on Angels and it is a very interesting one, but ultimately it was the human beings that kept me reading. That's where the real drama is. Even the Angels know that.
