Heaven Needs a Hero

Blurb

A war between God and Satan turns into the Rapture when Evangeline accidentally falls to Earth. No one is safe. Heaven and Hell finally clash after all these years. Daniel, Satan's son is on the hunt for anything that will guarantee a place on his father's throne. Jude, Satan's other son will not be beaten. That anything happens to be Evangeline, who can be turned during an allegiance to an AntiChrist. Will God's victory bring her home to Heaven or will one of the antichrists find her first?

Prologue: The Rapture Begins

Flames that burn underneath with rage. A Kingdom of light gone white with fury. It can only mean one thing. The rapture is about to begin, Earth's mortal ground is now the battlefield of Heaven and Hell. Demons and devils against Angels and The cross.

God and Satan are at war. Ever since Satan, a former messenger by the name of Lucifer was banished from Heaven for betrayal many many years ago. And God has held onto that grudge for the rest of his life.

One thing that God never wanted to do was to get the humans involved. Mortal blood being spilled over Lucifer's corruption was out of the question, but it was all too late. The humans are at stake; for judgement, punishment, for everything.

To persuade his victory in the Rapture, Satan fathered many children. They are known as Antichrists. Their powers of darkness and hellfire awaken when they reach 6 years old. Each of them were marked with 666 on their foreheads.

In desperation, God rushed to appoint his priests, nuns, witnesses, a few children and animals as his solders. He also chose a child as the vessel for the holy son, Jesus Christ. He even trained some of his angels to fight alongside his chosen son or daughter as a server and protector. 

But one thing went wrong. One powerful angel, a young girl by the name of Evangeline, unwittingly put herself, God and all of mankind at risk of losing the war. Evangeline fell to Earth. It had been an accident but the consequences were grave.

All the angels knew that once an Angel falls from Heaven, either as a sinner or just by a sheer accident like Evangeline had, would cause the brutality of the Rapture to heighten even more since on Earth, fallen angels were vulnerable to corruption and deception.

When she crash-landed onto Earth, Evangeline's wings vanished as a mark on her back with two crosses on their sides. Only if God won the war, could she go home.

Evangeline could be saved. That is, if no Antichrist or sinned human gets to her first.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

Shifa Gohar: this book is my first on inkitt and I love it thoroughly...but i guess this is not the end. The characters were amazing the plot too. At times it scared me more than a horror movie would. Love the plot something i had not read in a while.

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

Kasei Bulloch: At the beginning I wasn't very into the story but I kept reading and was more hooked than I was with Battle of the Wills. All of a sudden I had devoured chapter after chapter then the book was over. I am dying for The Compact. Please help a girl out!

Sara Grover: Being that this is your first story and I assume first draft, a lot of little mistakes are common, we all have made them; little things like your instead of you're, missed capitalization, missing punctuation, etc. As for the plot, I have a lot of questions and I did leave comments on certain sect...

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.
