After the Ashes – Kingdom Come Series (Novella, Book 1.5)
A behind the scenes look at the hierarchy of angels from Cecelia Earl's Kingdom Come series. A Kingdom Come Novella: Mila's story. Book 1.5 After the Ashes.
Warrior Angel Mila is determined to prove to Archangel Michael she's the right angel to lead the saints into battle, but there's more at stake than her will and pride.
Guardian Angels are disappearing. Mila is prepared to fight any battle to find and rescue them. She'll also do anything to win the coveted position as the leader of the squadron of saints--until that includes becoming a Guardian.
She's been a Warrior since Beginning Times. It's all she knows how to do, all she wants to do. She doesn't think she's the right person for the job, but an important soul is Unguarded, and she can't bring herself to tell Archangel Michael no. Besides, if her rival and competitor, Nicholas, can be both Guardian and Warrior, then so can she. Where Nicholas is strict and fierce, she's fiery and impulsive. He's a rigid Traditionalist, she's quick and always ready to attack. Will her strength become her weakness when she continuously makes mistakes--and worse--falls for her rival?
Who will earn the coveted position, especially once Nicholas' charge lives... and hers dies?
Early Praise for After the Ashes:
"Another awesome addition to your series!"
"So incredibly beautiful and descriptive....What an incredibly well written story! The descriptive narrative was just lovely to read. In parts I almost felt like I was reading poetry. I really enjoyed the POV 1 in Mila's voice. As a reader I really felt like I could understand how she was feeling--the pressure, guilt, determination. Her range of emotions was broadcast so loud and clear, at moments I wanted to hop in the pages and yell at her, while at others, I wanted to pat her on the back and give her a high five.... Great book!"
About Cecelia Earl (Green Bay, Wisconsin Author)
Cecelia Earl credits her passion for penning fiction to a mandatory sixth grade study hall. She could have gotten her math done, but instead chose to write a teen mystery series, loosely inspired by Sweet Valley High, Trixie Belden, and Nancy Drew--her favorite series at the time. She never shared the stories with anyone, and time moved on.
Sadly, she had no more mandatory study halls during which to write. It wasn’t until she had three children, worked full-time as a teacher, and kept a home relatively tidy that she realized her passion for writing wasn’t something she had to give up with childhood and the end of study halls. Four years and five novels later, she wrote the first book in the Kingdom Come trilogy.
She lives with her husband, three sons, and male dog near enough to Green Bay, WI that her refrigerator is always stocked with cheese, and the first colors her children learned were green and gold. (She happily spends time with her female characters whenever the testosterone levels get too high in the house.)
She can usually be found snuggling her kids, reading on the couch, drinking strong coffee, or sipping from a glass of Malbec. Once in a while she vacuums.
