The Fallen (The Deadly Virtues Prequel)
This is a set up for a new series by Tillie Cole. I love this author, I’ve read everything she has ever written so when I heard she was stepping into a pnr world I admit I did do a happy dance!
Before anyone reads this let me tell you it’s dark. Really dark. Violence, rape and sensitive subjects.
THE FALLEN: GENESIS
(A Deadly Virtues Prequel)
IN THE BEGINNING…
They told them they were evil.
They told them they were possessed by demons.
They told them that darkness ran in their veins.
Holy Innocents Home for Children is a haven for orphaned boys who have nothing and no one. The priests watch over them, educate them, raise them in the family of the church.
Except for some.
Seven of the orphans are no ordinary boys. They attract the attention of the priests for their acts of violence, of bloodlust. The priests realize these boys are drawn to the darkness.
And the priests are no ordinary priests. They are the Brethren, a secret sect who believe themselves on a divine mission to seek out evil in the boys in their care. Seek it out, and then drive it out.
The seven have fallen from God’s grace. And the Brethren will cleanse their blackened souls…
Different paths carved out for them.
Until there wasn’t.
It was heartbreaking, hard to read in places but shows us the beginning. The beginning of The Fallen…..
‘Blood for blood. Flesh for flesh.’
Raphael (book 1) is due to be released on 11th June.
