Twisted AF! Loved it! Did someone say dark? YES. PLEASE.

THIS. BOOK. Oh man! What did I just read? I've never read a novella like this one! At times, I had to cover the page so I wouldn't skip to the next, that's when I KNEW I was about to be taken on one heck of a journey. There were times I literally screamed “No! Stop! This isn’t going to happen…Oh. My. God.” I can sum up my dark journey with The Fallen by saying, this book is…Twisted! Dark! Captivating! Shocking! Twisted! Gritty! Shocking! Also, did I mention it's twisted?!

The Fallen: Genesis is JUST the beginning of what is going to be a mind-blowing ride! I enjoyed this prequel and I cannot wait to read Raphael's book and spend more time with the rest of The Fallen! This is sure to be an AMAZING series! I need the next book RFN!

Joseph watched helplessly as James moved from his place against the far wall toward a boy on a chair on the opposite side of the room. A boy who had slim knives embedded in his arms and legs—a human pin cushion.

Joseph shivered as he recalled his brother’s expression a moment ago as he’d sat and stared at the knives he had sliced into the boy’s flesh. James, the sadistic voyeur of his own work. Joseph’s nervous eyes landed on his brother’s target. The boy was bound with ropes, and a washcloth was stuffed into his mouth, silencing his cries.


Fear flooded Joseph’s body. Luke, the boy who had been intent on bullying James since the age of eight. The boy who would spit at James’s feet when they walked by. The boy who call him weird, a goth, a psychopath who rarely spoke. His taunts were endless. Joseph didn’t think the verbal bullets had ever hit their target . . . until he’d found a pad of paper hidden underneath James’s bed. A pad of paper showing in graphic detail what James wanted to do to Luke.

Tie him up.

Cut his flesh.

Exsanguinate his body.
