Angels of the Triad
Available from All your Favorite Retailers
The Fate of the world is in the hands of a fallen angel.
With a declining birth rate threatening to end humanity, three fallen angels fight to save it. The Angels of the Triad, the disgraced former protectors of Eve, are fearless in battle. But as demons gather strength, a prophecy is revealed that changes everything.
Sariel is lethal, and he knows it. Now the bitter angel must once again become a Protector, risking everything to guard Jenica a descendent of Eve. The fate of the world is tied to the life of a single woman, a petite blonde with a smile that could make angels fall.

Malak had a way of twisting the humans so that they did his bidding without
realizing they had been manipulated. His blonde hair and blue eyes, coupled
with an easy smile and hard body, made him seem approachable, especially to
people only made once. Malak was one of the Triad, as was Sariel. A group of
three Fallen Angels, banished to earth and stripped of their status as
Archangels by God for their sins. A sneer tipped his lips at the thought. He
and his brothers had been walking this earth for a Millenia, watching as God’s
children tore each other apart for lust and power, while he, Malak and Zagan
were punished for much less. But they had been Archangels and so, the
expectations placed on them were greater. They were to be beyond reproach,
expected to act with pure hearts and selfless souls.

began. Adrenaline spiked his blood, heightening his already supernaturally

white blonde hair making them stand out in the stormy evening light. A growl
reached his ears, and he suppressed the urge to smile. These Demons were young,

fighting experience, they would make up for with enthusiasm.

that the situation was dire and more desperate than ever. Fighting them was not
enough; they needed to drive them back into the fiery pits of hell where they

trucks traveling at high speeds. He felt the young Demon’s wrist snap as he
swung his arm up, blocking the blow from the knife his enemy carried. With an
upward arc of his arm, he slashed the demon’s throat, severing his carotid
artery. Blood spurted over him as he dropped the demon to the floor. Flipping
the demon over, he grasped the back of his neck, ripping the spinal cord that
contained the brain stem from his lifeless body. Throwing it to the wet, dank
ground, he watched as the body shriveled up before turning to dust.

misconception that Angels with black wings were servants of Lucifer, but that
was only partly true. As on earth, there was a hierarchy. True Fallen Angels
who did terrible deeds were indeed banished to hell and chosen by Lucifer to do
the work of the Dark Lord, a final ‘fuck you’ to God from his disobedient
children. But Angels such as himself and his brothers, who had just not lived
up to God’s high standards, were banished to Earth to protect his proudest
creation, although in their case, they had been stripped of the Archangel
status and power as well.

away. Another component of the triad’s punishment was that they were forbidden
to act on feelings of love. The penalty meant giving up their immortal status
to become human. If they chose to walk away from a relationship, then the
human’s mind would be wiped, and they would not remember a second of what had
been shared. Love and lust was what had placed his brethren and himself into
