    When evil begins, it grows.

    Angelic Wars: End of the Beginning is a musical novel where the book’s characters sing when the reader activates QR codes in the book.

    The epic war for Heaven continues. End of the Beginning is the second, full musical novel of the internal struggles and external battles among the angels for the control of Heaven during Satan’s rebellion. This novel can be read independently of the first novel, First Rebellion, though the first novel introduces readers to the characters. In First Rebellion, Azarias, the leader of the seven Septemviri, searches Heaven for rebellious angels in order to offer them God’s grace. Satan rejects Azarias’s offer and instead begins to expand his evil throughout Heaven’s districts. In the End of the Beginning, Azarias leads the Septemviri to find captured loyal angels so they can help fight Satan and eject him from Heaven (into the material world).

    Like all the Angelic Wars musical novels, the reader can hear the characters sing by scanning QR codes in paperbacks and clicking hyperlinks in eBooks for a unique reading experience.

    Have you ever wondered how evil began? Or why God gave angels the free will to reject Him?

    The Angelic Wars, First Rebellion is a musical novel where the book’s characters sing when the reader activates QR Codes. It is the epic story of the internal struggles and external battles among the angels for the control of Heaven during Satan’s rebellion.

    This first book in a series is unlike any other action-adventure fantasy because its setting is in Heaven and guided by Biblical passages. Azarias and six other angels are commissioned as the Septemviri by God’s guardian cherub to seek out and conquer a rebellion. They are commanded to offer the rebellious ones the choice of mercy or spiritual warfare.

    Little do they know that they are up against the most powerful angel of all, Satan and his army consisting of a third of Heaven’s population.
