UPDATED: The Fallen Is Rising Again


UPDATE! Actually, The Fallen 1: The Fallen and Leviathan was released on March 9 and is already available.

Well, lo and behold. I talk about the newly released DVDs for Fallen and then run across the fact that they’re republishing all the original books through Simon Pulse with all new cover artwork. The original novels are in two book collections that will be coming out on July 20th. The first book collects The Fallen and Leviathan. The second book puts together Aerie and Reckoning. How timely, eh? After the jump, you can check out a synopsis of both books and a short bio for author Tom Sniegoski.

Synopsis:
The Fallen 1: The Fallen and Leviathan
On his eighteenth birthday, Aaron begins to hear strange voices and is convinced he is going insane. But having moved from foster home to foster home, Aaron doesn’t know whom he can trust. He wants to confide in the cute girl from class, but fears she’ll confirm he’s crazy.

Then a mysterious man begins following Aaron. He knows about Aaron’s troubled past and his new powers. And he has a message for Aaron: As the son of a mortal and an angel, Aaron has been chosen to redeem the Fallen.

Aaron tries to dismiss the news and resists his supernatural abilities. But he must accept his newfound heritage — and quickly. For the dark powers are gaining strength, and are hell-bent on destroying him….

The Fallen 2: Aerie and Reckoning
Aaron’s senior year has been anything but typical. Half-angel and half-human, he has been charged to reunite the Fallen with Heaven. But the leader of the Dark Powers is determined to destroy Aaron—and all hope of angelic reconciliation.

Struggling to harness the incredible force within him, Aaron trains for the ultimate battle. With the Dark Powers building in strength and numbers, their clash may come sooner than he expects. And everyone who’s ever mattered to Aaron is now in grave danger.

Aaron must protect the girl he loves and rescue the only family he’s ever known. Because if he can’t save them from the Dark Powers, how can he hope to save the Fallen?
