What's a corporate demon to do when the voice in her head is devouring her sanity from the inside out, and the hosts of heaven and hell would rather see her destroyed than surrender a power they shouldn't possess?
Ronnie has the job any entry-level angel or demon would sell their soul for—she's a retrieval analyst for the largest search engine in the world. Ubiquity is a joint initiative between heaven and hell. Because what better way to track all of humanity's secrets, both good and bad, than direct access to their web browsing habits.
She might appreciate the position a little more if a) she could remember anything about her life before she started working at Ubiquity, b) the damn voice in her head would just shut up already, and c) her boss wasn't a complete dickhead.
As she searches for the solutions to the first two issues, and hopes the third will work itself out in performance reviews, she uncovers more petty backstabbing than an episode of Real Housewives, and a conspiracy as old as Lucifer's descent from heaven. On top of all that, if she forgets the cover sheet on her TPS report one more time, she's absolutely going on final written warning.
Now Ronnie’s struggling to keep her sanity and job, and stop the voice in her head from stealing her life. She almost misses the boredom of data analysis at Ubiquity. Almost.
Uriel’s Fall is a unique Angel/Demon story. It kept me engaged, and wanting to know what the mess was going on.
Ronnie is a unique character, and doesn’t remember anything past a couple of months. She is bound and determined to figure out why she is hearing a voice, and why she doesn’t have any memories. There are also two angels who are trying to figure out her voice. One she can trust, and the other she can’t. She’s just not sure why nobody will give her a straight answer.
There are clues along the way, and each new piece adds to the whole picture. The banter between Ronnie and the voice is pretty funny at times. I also liked how she’s a take charge kind of gal. She tries to find the answers herself, and has to put a lot of will into pushing out the voice in order to do it.
I’m interested in seeing where this story goes, and what will happen next.
