    Laila is born of angel and demon, her mixed blood a curse that bars her from both Heaven and Hell, so she must fight for the one place she calls homeearth. Flaming Dove is an action packed urban fantasy that dares to challenge the reader to question the traditional roles of good and evil. The apocalypse has come and gone, but the war between Heaven and Hell continues. Earth is a wasteland where angels and demons slaughter each other with no regard for human life. Heaven and Hell are deadlocked, [...]

    Armageddon. Angels vs. Demons. Good vs. Evil. These are the themes in the author’s new book, “Flaming Dove.” But, for me, the book was much more than these larger-than-life themes. I found the relationships especially those of Laila, the half-angel, half-demon, had with Beezlebub, Michael, Bat-El and even Zarel, The Demon Queen, were what propelled the book forward and kept me turning the pages. Mr. Arenson did a magnificent job in portraying Laila – her wants and desires, her sorrow and [...]

    This was an absolutely fantastic book. I really really enjoyed it. I loved it so much I kept quoting it to my wife. Beelzebub was one of my favorite characters. He had so many different personalities, with trying to be romantic, sweet, mean, funny. He was awesome. The book was pretty much non-stop action with a few flashbacks about the characters, but it never slowed down the pace of the main story line. The ending caught me by surprise as well. I never expected it to end the way I did.I always [...]

    In Flaming Dove, Arenson weaves an absorbing tale of the ultimate example of internal conflict: a being part angel, part demon, and fully belonging nowhere. In her quest for a home, she becomes caught up in the ongoing battle between Heaven and Hell for dominion over the Earth, knowing that a win from either side would lead to her death. He places his heroine in quite the predicament!Laila rises to the task admirably, causing the reader to root for her despite the impossibility of her goals. The [...]

In Heaven the godlight burns her demon half and in Hell the hellfire burns her angel half. She is exiled to Earth where she is alone except for her constant companion, a wolf named Volksfair. If Heaven wins then the Earth will be filled with godlight. If Hell wins then the Earth will be filled with Hellfire. [...]

    I guess this was okay. It was quite interesting and/ or fun in places, and it was interesting to view an Armageddon story from the viewpoint of the angels and demons for a change instead of the typical human-centric focus, but overall it didn't really hook me. I'm not sure how much of that is just me being my usual difficult to please self (I have ridiculously high standards. Some of my favourite authors still only get 3 star reviews!) and how much was that the story itself seemed quite simplist [...]

    Laila’s blood wars within her. Her mother an angel and her father a demon, she wanders the earth after Armageddon has arrived. Both factions seek her assistance in ending the stalemate between heaven and hell. All she seeks is a place to belong.I was torn between giving the book 3 or 4 stars. I wish you could give a 1/2 star. For me this story is a sad one. Laila is a tragic character and very well written. The plot is a new take on the very old story of Armageddon. Even the devil gets a makeo [...]

    There are good books. There are really good books. And then there are the books you can't tear yourself away from. This is one of those books. Daniel's descriptions so vivid and alive that you feel like you're right there. I loved it from the first few sentences and enjoyed it to the end. There are very few books that can hold your attention through every single word, but this one can. It is an amazing story that I plan on reading again and again.

    Flaming Dove is a dark fantasy that pits angels against demons in the battle for supremacy on earth. However as the battle rages, the distinction between good and evil blurs, epitomised by the dual nature of Leila, a half angel, half demon. After twenty seven years, weary from the unforgiving conflict, both sides hope that Leila will deliver them victory.Banished from God's grace and abandoned by Hell, Leila searches for a place to call home among the wasteland that is Earth. Leila's bleak and l [...]

    When I was a teenager I was fascinated by angels. Not the puffy-winged-halo-sporting type, more the Archangel-wrath-of-God type. The fact that there was a whole army of sword wielding higher beings blew my mind. The more I read, the more I needed to read, and before I knew it I was knee deep in biblical reference material and spouting angelic tales to any poor soul that would listen. Now… like every other one of my unique (and sometimes warped fascinations) my futile need for warrior-angel inf [...]

    Posted at oh-my-books/2010/The Armageddon has taken place, and now angels and demons are fighting for the Earth.In the middle of this fight is Laila, the half angel, half demon. Her only place to live is Earth, since the light at Heaven or the hellfire at Hell would burn her. Laila was an intriguing character. Since the begging of her story, we know she isn't interested in this war. It doesn't matter to her who wins, since she would still die. She only cares for her wolf, and drinking. But when [...]

    Daniel Arenson has written a really unique and quite entertaining book. As a Christian, even if a slightly esoteric Christian, I found some of Daniel's characters a little hard to identify with and make that wholehearted connection so necessary to really enjoy a novel. His angels are flawed and conflicted, his demons are not all that bad. Take out the Christian element of it and you're left with a very exciting, page-turner that is well worth reading. His fluency and pace are quite amazing and f [...]

    Story about a half angel/half demon who is being torn between forces during the angel war that occurs after ArmageddonListed with a list of survival stories, and I would not have placed it there. More Urban Fantasy. Complete fantasy as far as the lore is concerned but the author definitely did his research about ancient beliefs, and ancient gods. I had trouble with how the demons and angels both seemed Evil and Good,,and I had a hard time not argueing with the book over what was truth,,,but stil [...]

    I hate it when I don't like a book, but aside from the cover, which is awesome, I'm having a hard time coming up with something I liked about this one. And I'm not saying that to be mean - judging by other reviews of this book, plenty of people like it, so I'm going to chalk this one up to not being my cup of tea, especially since I enjoyed Arenson's Eye of the Wizard.The first minor annoyance I had with this book is that Arenson repeated himself again and again and again. Phrases, words (words [...]

    I wanted to like this book and as a story it was brimming with promise. It's for that reason alone that it's attracted a 3 star rating from me; afterall - it's the story I usually sign up for.This is a post-armageddon novel following the ongoing and bloody war between angels and demons for supremacy of the earth. Laila, half-demon and half-angel, becomes the pivotal pawn in a battle between two angels who are also brothers: Michael, leader of the angellic hosts and Beelzebub, fallen angel and ru [...]

    This has to be one of the most original story's I have read. The idea's not only great, but also well executed. Laila is a half-angel/half-demon, born after Armageddon. During Armageddon the human race became largely extinct and angels and demons battled it out in Jerusalem, Israel. Being a half-demon Laila can't live in Heaven with the Angels, but because she's a half-angel as well she can't live in Hell.At the beginning of the book Laila returns to Jerusalem, where both Heaven and Hell are try [...]

    This review was originally posted on Big Al's Books and Pals review blog on 06/28/2012.The first character we are introduced to is Nathaniel. He is a jaded and gritty angel who had lost his wings and an eye fighting an arch-demon during the battle of Armageddon. He was my favorite angel and he drew me in. This story though is about Laila, both forces of Heaven and Hell think having Laila on their team will finally turn the tide in their favor.When Laila returns to Jerusalem and finally chooses a [...]

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and as soon as I downloaded the image for this cover I was blown away. I could waste an entire review just on this cover. This is-hands down-the best e-book cover I've ever seen in my life. I should stop, because we all know you judge books by the cover, but I'll give a quick peek-a-boo before you go and nab it.The first thing I have to say about Daniel Arenson's writing, is his style stands out above all else. Some writers restrict th [...]

    I wish there was a 1.5 star rating, for "meh". I can't give this a 1-star, because I can't say I didn't like the book. I finished it, and there were parts that I liked, especially in the way the story treated the lesser, third tier characters. (Sidebar: I would read a series about Nathaniel and the Wrecking Balls, as long as it fits the Glen-Cook's-"Black Company"-but-with-angels that I've half written in my head.)Having said that, Laila (the protagonist), and this book in general, reads like th [...]

    If all the Fallen Angels are brothers then doesn't that make the daughters and sons of said angels relatives of all the other angels. So technically that makes Beelzebub an uncle to the half-sisters Bet-al and Laila. That makes all the seducing of very young girls just ever so slightly incestuous and Beelzebub a little less of a charming seducer.The concept was quite interesting but the story suffered a little from repetitive phrases and the superb battle between the evil and good forces was ove [...]

    I must state up front, that as a writer, I am a much more critical reviewer than any casual reader. And, because I'm not a regular reader of this genre, I can't say it is a five star per MY tastes…but I am certain a reader of epic or dark fantasy will agree this is a five star work.Preamble stated to be fair. Now I'll rate per my normal thought process.Setting (4 stars) The reader will smell the brimstone and fire, sense the decay and rot, visualize in the sky the black, bat-winged demons, and [...]

    I won this book in the good reads/first reads give away. This is the first book in a while that really had me fully absorbed. I love the thought of this book. Angels fighting demons. Then along comes a character we would not expect and she is strong, beautiful, tormented, loving, a soldier, and a fighter for man and wolf. This was an amazing read and every step of the way it was fun, exciting and riveting. The characters are well put together that you feel invested in them and can imagine their [...]

    I am a bit torn really, I really liked the book, but the thing is, I hated the end. I am sure many will say, but the end was perfect! Just as it should be. Well not in this girl's book. It made me sad and angry.The world was just, wow, so cool. Earth is almost destroyed, almost no humans around as they are all dead. Instead demons and angels fight each other in a war going on 27 years. I liked the world, the angels, the demons. All strength and weaknesses. The main character Laila is both and ca [...]

    This book was a very fast read for me. I enjoyed the authors depictions of angels and demons. I had a problem with the setting for some reason I didn't feel the characters were grounded in the setting of the Holy land. Maybe I'm being unfair because I have lived in Jerusalem, Israel but I don't feel the author accurately described the land. I also found it puzzling that the author chose Masada as the final battle instead of the tradition Megiddo. I don't think the plateau of Masada is bigger eno [...]

    It is not often a book stirs my emotions to such an extent as tears, but this one did it. I loved this book. The characters carried the plot through, and I easily related to each of their individual plights, all with emotional ups and downs. We have a nice romance in the background, battles, and confused emotions galore, even in angels and devils. At the end of the day, they're just like we puny humans. Why did I go the whole hog of 5 stars? Because this book did it for me, gave me entertainment [...]

    I gave this book a 3 star rating because it was a half way decent read. It was in a bundle of 6 books labelled as dystopian sci-fi of which it is neither, it could better be described as an Armageddionish fantasy. I'm sure Armageddionish isn't a word but that's the closest I could come to describing it.

    Jessica
    I thought there was a lot of potential with this world, but there were too many points where the narration felt like it dragged a bit. I was also tripped up a couple times by seeing the same phrase or way of describing things multiple times, which made the descriptions feel a little stunted. Depth was given to all the characters but the dialogue started to feel a little heavy-handed and dragged out. Honestly, I think this book has amazing potential. I think that if the editor had been a little m [...]
