    I don't know where to start with my review so I'll just say that I loved this book. It's not often that I find myself glued to my Kindle except when I'm playing Diner Dash or reading epic books of this nature. I thank Harry Aderton for writing such a wonderful chronicle of the most famous war ever fought given from the point of view of one of the archangel's Sariel.The novel begins with Sariel telling his story of how he's fallen out of God's favor and has become a fallen. The war between good and evil had been raging for 50 centuries already but it took on personal meaning for Sariel once the women he loved, Requel became a victim of this war. Thinking God has forsaken him, Sariel journey's to find his soul mate and their child. This love story is pure and is used as the driving force of determination for Sariel through his adventures, but it works well and does not get so sappy that the reader thinks they are reading just another romance novel mixed with fantasy.I don't want to give too much away about this novel but there were a few things that stood out to me that I thought were very interesting. The novel splits the planes of creation into the Causal plane where the highest angels are born for example Sariel, Michael, Sammael (Lucifer), and Gabriel-Archangels. They refer to each other as brothers and have the most strength since they are most God-like. The next plane is the Astral. This is where the angels are. They are made up of 16 spheres which Lucifer tries to overtake during the war. The third and most important plane (in my opinion) is the Physical plane. This plane is pretty much known as God's playground... where humans preside. I loved this breaking up of heaven. It helped to get a mental picture of where everyone was and what the effects of the war had cost the fallen and angel alike.Another thing that I found pretty interesting about this novel is that it deals with spirits, incarnation as well as reincarnation. It explains how we are all souls and what we do in one life translates how the other lives will be handled. I think this is a great message because so many people get caught up in their religion being the ultimate instead of realizing that there is only one God and the rest is just circumstance. Faith, love, and forgiveness are above all the greatest weapons and this is one point I have taken from this book. And there are many, but it's one of the ones that resonated most.Aderton has a well written book that I found to be extremely engaging and worthy of the forthcoming sequels. This was an exceptional take on the beginning of creation and war. With extremely great imagery and narrating this book is gauranteed to hook readers of fantasy. The battle between good and evil are always great stories that people love to read and I think anyone looking for one should throw this debut novel into the fray. I thank Harry Aderton for writing such a great novel that I'm sure will be on my mind until the next comes out.

    Heaven's Night is a fictional story about the Archangel Sariel and his fall from the grace during Lucifer's war on heaven.With each page turn we are brought deeper into the turmoil as the spheres fall to the Legion of Satan and few stand up to fight against them, including the Archangels who await God's order to strike their former brothers.This was Sariel's plan too, after all he holds the greatest gift, his faith. But when his beloved soulmate perishes and a child is endangered he must chose between his faith and love for God, and doing what he feels is the right course of action: saving the child from the wrath of Lucifer. Sariel chooses to fall, and with him we are thrown into turmoil, death and decay as he battles against foes and even himself to finish his quest.Sariel makes choices and decisions that he's never had to before. During these dark times he finds his own voice and with his fiery sword he paves a path of destruction in the name of God, whom he feels has left him. yet even in his darkest hours, he finds his faith and the strength to press on.I couldn't put this one down. I'm a sucker for fantasy, and this take on the war is superbly written. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys fantasy, and I look forward to reading more.

    I was more than a little skeptical about a book based completely on the fall of Lucifer. Could anything new be added to this? There have been several attempts at weaving the fall of the angels into science fantasy lore – but usually as background for a story. Would it be possible to create an original and compelling narrative without being bogged down by the inherent religious dogma? Surprisingly the answer is yes.Harry Aderton has created an intricate and compelling angelic world. He combines familiar aspects of the biblical story with aspects of other world religions and with modern scientific theory. For the most part this works. The story focuses on Sariel, one of the Archangels, and tells the story of the fall from his perspective. Sariel is a warm and relatable character which was pleasantly surprising. To take a figure as naturally imposing as one of the Archangels, chosen hand and voice of God, and humanize him without weakening him – well that is impressive.Lucifer is almost sympathetic. Almost. And at first you find yourself feeling creeped out by that. Who wants to feel sympathetic towards the architect of the fall of man? But then you realize that it is necessary. Lucifer has to be more than just a stereotype for the meaning of the story to really hit home.It is a little confusing at times though. Aderton has brought a wealth of biblical and canonical knowledge to this story paired with a fairly robust amount of information from other world religions. And it is a lot for the reader to take in. At times I felt like I needed a flow chart. I enjoy detail and backstory and intricacy… but occasionally I wish the knowledge had been imparted in a clearer fashion.More importantly this is a well-crafted tale that does not preach or seek to shove a religious view down anyone’s throat. That is not to say there is not a discussion of faith and belief and relationship with God. There is. But it is an exploration of the broader ideas and concepts related to that- on a very personal level. And did I mention there are some pretty awesome angelical battles? Because there are. The descriptions of the heavenly host battling the fallen created cinematic images in my head. Extremely well done.I am no longer skeptical. I am a fan.I was provided a gratis copy of this book for review.

    Heaven's Night is a very ambitious book. It falls in the genre of Christian Fantasy, which is new to me. It tells the story of Archangel Sariel and his fall from heaven. At the start of the tale, Lucifer has already fallen, as has Mephistopheles. Sariel wants to help, but finds himself torn between duty and love. This is a theme that resonates throughout the entire novel. Love and obedience are frequently at odds in Sariel's world, and the novel is the story of his attempts to reconcile the two factors. As Sariel puts it, "Free will was God's greatest gift, and his greatest mistake."Going in to this book, I didn't know much of anything about the Angelic Orders. Sure, I knew there were Archangels and Seraphim and Cherubim, but that's about where my knowledge ends. That being said, angels have always been a factor in my life. There have been a ton of times where I have turned to stories of angels to get me through tough times. Happily, though, you don't need to know anything about angels to understand and enjoy Heaven's Night. Everything you need to know is explained during the story.The novel itself is very well written. Aderton's use of prose is graceful, even during the roughest of scenes. There is definitely imagery that can be a little hard on the senses, but it's never overdone. The rough parts are there for a reason and he doesn't belabor the point. At the same time, the awe-inspiring scenes are also the appropriate length. You have enough time to get a sense of the beauty and peace without getting bored. That's a tough line, but Aderton walks it well.There's no way around it. Heaven's Night is going to make you think. It's the type of book that will get stuck in your mind for days and weeks, and you'll find yourself bringing it up in conversations on a regular basis. I firmly believe that this is a great word-of-mouth type of book. You'll read it and won't be able to get it out of your head, so you'll suggest the novel to others so that you have people to discuss the ideas with. That's what makes a truly wonderful book.If you're a fan of Christian literature or of Fantasy, you want to read Heaven's Night. If you're a fan of both genres, it's a must.

    I won't bore everyone with a synopsis, never do, b/c that's what the dust cover is for! But I will tell you that this is one tale that you'll want to read. I had the pleasure of meeting the author, Harry Aderton at a book fair in Asbury Park, NJ. It was their first Book Fair and I am hoping it will grow, but Harry was the only one there with a 'real' book. Please don't misunderstand me. I'm sure the others at the event had labored hard over their tales, but if I'm to be honest, they were all very small paperbacks. Not to discredit small paperbacks, but this was a book fair!! I was looking for BOOKS! The minute you walked into the venue they were desperately scrambling for your attention. It was so obvious and sickening, that it turned me off. Harry, on the other hand was very professional and personable and his followup serendipitous. His book was the only full length QUALITY novel among them. So, as it turns out....the long drive from Philadelphia PA to Asbury Park NJ was not wasted! I bought Harry's book and just finished it today. I read it in three sittings. It was that good! The most amazing part of the book is his voice. I have never read a book (and I've read thousands) with such a clear concise voice. Not only was his voice clear and concise, it held the same, unwavering energy from page 1 to page 487. I am an author as well. I only have short stories for sale, almost finished with my first full length novel, and I have to tell you.....holding such a wonderful consistent voice for almost 500 pages is sheer brilliance. The only thing that shines more than his voice is the faith that is woven into the writing. It is never preachy nor annoying how some books in this genre can be. THIS IS A STORY FOR EVERYONE! It is packed with romance, suspense, mystery and a WHOLE LOT OF ACTION! I want to see this in the FICTION section, not the 'Christian' section. Exhaustingly researched and masterfully prosed!!!! I just hope it doesn't take another 20 years for the next installment of this masterpiece. But rest assured! I will be buying it!!

    Heavens Night by Harry AdertonI get goose bumps when I watch a movie and the music culminates towards the point where the forces of good vs. evil drawing the battle lines during the crescendo of the lyrics of an expertly chosen song. Seldom if even have I gotten those same chills whilst reading but from page 295 until 305 that is exactly what happened. It gave me a thrill, the battle epic in nature, the realisation that turns the tide so logical and yet so far out of reach comes with the clarity of a lightning bolt. This is a story of love, the love soul mates share is embodied in what is shared by Sariel, an Archangel and his other half, Requel. It is the story of the fall of a third of the Angelic forces and the idea's and the logic behind the fall is portrayed so realistically and with such clarity that the reader is sucked in, left with nothing in the end but the notion that one needs faith. This faith however is questioned time after time after time, battle after brutal battle. Then the words is spoken "Stay with Me" and a mind shift takes place and with it a sway in the tide of the battle. During the battle in scenes with some of the best ever world building descriptions I have ever come across the Archangel Michael speaks another truth again swaying a tide and changing history... "My Father gave Me dominion over Heaven and Earth! Can you say the same...?"Between world building extraordinaire characters so real you at times want to hug them, slap them and throw a sock at them, amidst all of these you find a talent for story telling that is going to become a talent to be reckoned with. With this first book in what I hope is a series this author managed to establish himself as a firm favourite of mine. If you like Christian Fan Fiction, then trust me, this is the book for you. WaAr

    I have read many books featuring heavenly angels - depicted as messengers, guardian angels, warriors, lovers etc. This is the first time I’ve read a book with heaven as the main theme, angels in main roles, and with no involvement whatsoever from the human world. Very interesting….The story revolves around the Archangel Sariel and his fight to save his soulmate Requel and their “child” from the clutches of Lucifer and his horde of fallen angels. The powerful narrative brings the reader on Sariel’s journey through the spheres of heaven and further below in his search for Requel and his own redemption. Somehow, this feeling of tension, dread and foreboding accompanied me through most of the book as there were so many odds stacked against Requel and his allies, and the desire to see the Archangel defeat the enemy and return to his rightful place in heaven just kept me turning the pages.The religious theme is not restricted to Christian doctrines, and has elements from other religions as well. This book will not appeal to all readers, but the author’s ability to produce a credible, original take on this frequently recycled celestial theme is definitely worth exploring. Exact rating : 3.5

    I know the fact that Harry is my brother would lead you to think that my review of his book would be biased and it may be. But don't let that stop you from reading this amazing story. As a fan of both fantasy and spiritual literature, I was totally blown away by this book. I had no idea my little brother could weave such an epic tale of good versus evil, let alone using angels as the combatants. If you like action, drama, twists and turns in your fiction you must give this book a chance. You will surely be glad you did.

    it is a little wordy at times but it is good. It makes you think about your relationship with God. It is fictional, but yet it speaks to your soul. It would make a great movie as the fight are WAY OVER THE TOP!!! I had to stop reading it during the fights due to the discriptive nature. I would love to read his next book. It was a good read,

    I thought this book was amazing...it just gave a different perspective to the war in heaven when Satan was cast down to the earth..after challenging God's way of rule...was more personalized...you felt the pain as the family unit was torn apart....the love that the angels had for each other...there faith in God as there Father...just a great and compelling book...makes you thing about your faith.

    First I should say that I am an atheist so I wasn't very pre-disposed towards geeking out about this book. Requesting this book I was of two minds: completely intrigued and a little put off. A long novel based Lucifer's defection? I thought it would be angsty and long-winded and, frankly, too religious in tone to hold my interest. I am SO happy to say I was wrong. The story is told from the point of a view of a lesser known Archangel named Sariel. Sariel explains angelic names (Sariel, Sammael, Gabriel, Kakabel, Azazel, Michael, etc. Notice anything?) as he starts to tell his story. Sariel has a soulmate in Requel, an angel of the lower classes and she is the catalyst to get him involved in the destruction Sammael, who now calls himself Lucifer, is bringing to the lower spheres of existence. I am not very well-versed in angel lore other than knowing vaguely the classes of angels in a sort of cut-and-dry school way: Cherubim, Serpahim, Archangel. This book explained the different classes of angels perfectly, easily, and well-integrated to the story. And what a story it is. A story of heartache, of a family fractured, of deepest betrayal, of despair and the horrors of war, of how twisted one can be come, of hope, of faith, and most of all, of love. Truly, love conquers all. It can conquer fear, self-doubt, loneliness, heartache, betrayal, corruption.The author seemed to weave some of the eastern philosophies as well into the story and I truly enjoyed that. It goes to highlight harmony we could have if we would only recognize it and let it happen. This book isn't preachy. It's filled with fantasy and gruesome war scenes. And yes, it talks about faith and faith in god. But I walked away with the sense of faith in love and trust in your family members and loved ones. But most of all, I walked away with the story of two soulmates, and one who literally moved heaven for the other.

    Lucifer challenges the throne of GOD. It ignites a long time war. An amazing journey in this story, with many biblical names mentioned in it.The book is amazing and with many outlooks on war. Various world religions all rolled into this book and gets you to thinking of the different realms of life. This book is a novel and would make a great series, even a wonderful movie.As a family that has been torn apart, one brother has to go up against his brother whom turned into Lucifer. The archangel is about to go up against the fallen angels. The action scenes are absolutely awesome.

    I've never read anything quite like Heaven's Night before. I picked it up at a friend's strong recommendation and had trouble getting through the first half of the book, but it became more interesting as the second half progressed and I found myself more invested in Sariel's story.I think my main problem with the story in the first half was with Sariel's character. I understand he's become a fallen Archangel but he spends a lot of time doubting himself and hating his actions which was a little overdone. The story picked up in the Redemption chapter after he went to our physical world (i.e. the primordial plane) to kill Requel but ended up passing many peaceful decades with her instead. It really helped heal his soul and make him realize where his true path. When he saw the visions, I actually thought the 3rd vision of a diamond falling into the earth and getting coated with dirt was actually about him and how he can maintain his faith and angelic-ness despite the dirty things he is forced to do. The worldbuilding was great; the author does an incredible job of fleshing out the details of the three planes (Primordial, Astral, and Causal) and putting his own spin on describing how each one is different. The idea that once you're fallen, you can't rise up to some of the higher spheres within the Astral plane is an interesting one too.

    Too slow in the beginning. I don't do this often, but I stopped reading around the halfway point. I felt that it was a good story line, but the In depth descriptions of everything was so distracting and made the good story drag on (to me anyways). Although my review is negative, I do believe this is a good book to those who enjoy a deep description of every scene in the story. Sorry Harry Aderton, may God continue to bring you success in your writing. Thank you for your hard work on this book.

    This book is a well-written page-turner, but for entertainment only. Your reaction to it will probably be highly dependent upon your expectations for it. If you're looking only for well-written, exciting, page-turning entertainment and are able to separate fiction from truth, then I think you'll enjoy this book. I did. If you require even fictional works to teach some truth or at least have some basis in reality, then skip this one. This book is not Christian fiction. Although it uses many Biblical names and images, it does not teach a biblically based understanding of God or of the angelic realm. It may not even strictly qualify as religious fiction in that it presents a combination of many religious viewpoints rather than any single one, probably having a stronger basis in Gnosticism than any established modern religion. Gnosticism, which originated late in the 1st century and flourished in the 2nd and 3rd centuries, was a spin off of early Christianity, but was strongly condemned by the writers of the New Testament and early Christian leaders. However, with that said, the author is clearly a skillful writer, and he spins a great yarn. If you're looking for pure entertainment, you'll find this book hard to put down.

    Heaven's Night was a bit of a challenge for me to get through. It was an arduous journey, but the end result was completely worth it. There were bad things about this book, and good things about it. Good stuff first.The imagery in this book was incredibly vivid, which I loved. The author's description of Heaven's spheres was really cool, as were the crazy fight scenes. I also enjoyed Lucifer as a character. He wasn't just evil for evil's sake. He actually had a justifiable cause for doing what he was doing--creating duplicity in the spheres. The plot line was cool, and Harry Aderton tied up the loose ends quite well.What I didn't like was Sariel's lack of weakness. He was just this all-powerful character without any real flaws, other than self-doubt. He got out of these seemingly improbable situations with ease, which I was not a fan of.All in all, if you like books filled with nonstop action and thrills, I definitely recommend Heaven's Night. I'll be on the lookout for the sequel.

    I couldn't finish this. I couldn't get past the references to Eastern religions & mystical practices & finally had to stop when Sariel mentions the Temple of The Divine Mother. He explains that God doesn't mind us "personalizing" Him whether Father, Mother, etc & then the angel actually calls Him "she" & Divine Mother. There were other small things that bugged me like the fact that Jesus wasn't even mentioned as far as I read & I just got the feeling that this was a book trying to create its own truth about God. I know it's fiction & that's fine, but because I actually believe the Bible, though I enjoy Christian speculative & imaginative fiction, for me it still has to have a good Biblical foundation for me to be comfortable reading it. Maybe I didn't read far enough, but I just didn't get a good feeling from it. If you care about these same things, you may not want to read this.

    Harry Aderton looks at the war that caused Heaven’s Night (hard from Aderton Prime LLC) that was started by Lucifer. Two other archangels have joined him, but the other seven archangels including Sariel ignore the corruption of the lower nine spheres into circles of Hell. Then Sariel’s soul mate Raquel is killed after somehow doing the impossible and creating a son. The quest to find Raquel’s son and locate her immortal soul sends him into the depths of the corrupted Astral Plane and forces him to face the his worst aspects before he becomes the epicenter of the fight against that corruption. This is an exciting blending of the background hinted in Dante and, considering the odd background, seems realistic, especially for believers. Review printed in the Philadelphia Weekly Press

    As far as biblical fictions are concerned, this one was pretty entertaining. The author takes an interesting approach in explaining how hell came to be. The main character seems more human than angelic, constantly expressing a slew of traditionally un-angelic emotions such as anger and fear. This definitely main the character much easier to relate with, but also sparked irreconcilable holes in his supposedly divine nature. This will make more sense if you read the book. All in al, this was an entertaining read.

    WOW! What an amazing journey! I found myself thinking about this book long after I finished it. The book captivated me from the start. The story flowed effortlessly and the writing was superb. I usually don't read books like this but it was recommended to me from a friend. The action scenes were awesome but it was the love story that kept me turning the pages. And the ending - crazy good!! Can't wait for a sequel!

    Good stuff. The story was gripping and fun to read. I liked how the author incorporated several scientific theories that supposedly disprove the Bible, most notably the theory of evolution. This theory has so many holes you could drive several mac trucks right through it, but the point is that science and religion do not need to be adversaries. I look forward to the sequel.
