In a world of Machiavellian angels and Bushido vampires, one grieving angel and an ancient vampire war spirit race against time to prevent a shadowy cabal from destroying a fragile peace. 


About Angel Falling

The Seventh Flight of the Angelic Host are God’s deliverers of final Judgement to planets and races across the universe. They have never failed in their task until they encounter the Succae, a race of demonic energy vampires that possess their hosts. The Succae were once rapacious world conquerors who worshipped an ugly pantheon of bloodthirsty deities. However, in a new age they have been through an enlightenment and renaissance, leaving their old ways behind. In its place they have built a new meritocratic society with an honour-based caste system. In a brutal conflict the two sides fought a war that neither could win, and an uneasy truce was eventually reached.      

 “Angel Falling” is narrated by the angel Azshael – a disgraced diplomat who is asked to investigate the death of a Succae elite on Angelic soil. Azshael is disgraced in Angelic circles because he fell in love with the enemy and his former lover, a Succae consort named Ischae died in the same way as the murder victim. Motivated to find her killer and assisted by the Succae Serrate Lytta, an ancient war spirit bound in flesh, their investigation uncovers a cabal intent on wrecking the peace and they race against time to prevent a terrible atrocity designed to reignite the conflict with deadly consequences.

When it became apparent that Knight Errant and Sorcerer to the Queen were no longer valid career choices, Adam worked his way through 37 other jobs before arriving at writer.  Along the way he looked after seals and bears at London Zoo, taught small children how to stay on a horse, wrote competition scripts for radio stations and told tall tales to anyone who would listen. He now lives outside London, with the sort of book and music collection guaranteed to ensure the neighbours never stay long for coffee.

I thought I would start things off by thanking some of my literary heroes of which there are many. I suppose the best place to start is with the writers that helped inform the creation of 'Angel Falling' so here they are. Neil Gaiman and Jamie Delano. I love comics...


‘I am the Sixth Succae Spirit of War.  I am the Watcher in the Well and High Executioner of the Inglorious Dead. I have slain gods, cleansed fields of battle and fed upon the spirits of the heroes of our enemies.  I have one wyrd and that is destruction.  There is but one certain outcome to your challenge and that is final death, for I will crush your bones into dust and drink your soul dry’.
