Linda Nightingaleabout this book: Azazel resisted temptation until the wrong woman came along.
In Genesis, "The sons of God saw that the daughters of men were fair; and they took wives for themselves from those who were pleasing to them."
Azazel was a leader of the Grigori, the angels sent to Earth to teach Mankind after the oust from Eden, how to survive in a less hospitable environment. Nine-tenths of the Grigori fell from Grace, but was it lust or love?
This novella presents the Grigori's tale in first person from Azazel's point of view--the temptations, his struggles and the final realization that Heaven doesn't speak to him anymore.
I first read about the Grigori in the Book of Enoch, part of the Apocrypha. I found their tale fascinating and their fate not necessarily deserved. Although Azazel is portrayed as a demon, The Night Before Doomsday is not about evil. The Grigori, also called the Watchers, are the Ninth House of angels, closer to human, and thus more susceptible to temptation.
My son supplied the title.
