He thought he was prepared to go to war with the Devil, but what if Satan’s not his true enemy?
After the death of the nun who raised him and his best friend, Jordan Conway cannot think of anything but finding Sophia and keeping her safe. Luckily, he has a team of archangels on his side, and with their help, the two lifelong friends are reunited. But Jordan didn’t expect the reunion to include another of Sister Helen’s charges—the boy he’d loved like a brother but who had pushed him away, Dane. The three orphans never thought their lives would amount to much, but finding their way back to each other is leading them to finding out who they truly are.
All paths converge when the fourteenth sphere, a celestial object with a power like no other, appears at the Met. The angels must keep it from falling into the wrong hands, and soon, the lines between good and evil blur as they find themselves fighting alongside Satan to prevent the unleashing of a dark and dangerous force hell-bent on taking them all down. But in this world, nothing is as it seems, and the mysterious sphere is possibly the least of their concerns…
Get ready for another adventure as the three friends, and the angels they now consider family, travel the globe in search of a way to save each other—and the world.
an interview with sara m. schaller
What was the hardest part of writing the revelations of three?
The hardest part of writing The Revelation of Three was figuring out how all the plot components came together. It was hard to decide where the story started and it was hard to weave it all into a cohesive story but once I did, it turned into something truly spectacular.
What was your favourite part of writing the revelations of three?
My favorite part of writing The Revelation of Three was exploring the human characters more, mainly Jordan, Sophia, and Dane. I have so many plans for them, and to finally start that journey of revealing who they are was a pure joy.
What’s your favourite place to write?
My favorite place to write is my office at home. It’s quiet, it has all the things I need in there (research books, story board, journals), and it just has a calming atmosphere.
In your opinion, what makes a good book?
The characters to me are what make a good book. They’re always the part that comes first for me, and they ultimately are what drive the plot, all the twists and turns, all the action.
following the events in the first book, the revelation of three kicks off immediately with a strong start.
the revelation of three felt like a step up from the genesis of seven. it was fast paced and had a few plot twists that i didn’t see coming. i liked how i could easily see how the author has improved their writing.
compared to the first book, this one seems to focus on character development, and i really loved it. all of the characters had growth, no matter how small. jordan had a particularly important developmental growth in this book. satan had a lot of change too which i want expecting, but really enjoyed.
due to all the goings on in the revelation of three, I’m really excited to see where the next book will take us, particularly when seeing development with satan.
