"This has imagination and touches on the mythic and spiritual in ways that are not typical.""The Sylph's Tale made for a most unusual read. The choice to format the story more as a series of vignettes from a creation myth. Fallen angels appear in many stories, but it's far less common to see through the angels' own eyes.""The love between a girl from prehistoric days and Ayekah was beautifully told and although this book was too religious to my liking I believe that the next books will probably be more paranormal than biblical."
I am extremely grateful for those who liked it even though it's missing the largest chapters:

The screenplay version of The Sylph's Tale/Ayekah The Damned won third place on ISA, for more information and comments please go to From Paper To Screen:

Mythology and Historical References
The Sylph’s Tale is loosely based in the history and myth of ancient people Rites, Sacred Spaces, Underworld, and Stone Tablets found in north and Mesoamerica.
The name Ayekah is akin to Genesis 3:9. When after Adam and Eve ate from the forbidden tree, God asked Adam, "where are you" or "ayeka" in Hebrew. 
Also, Samael's fallen angel was the "watchers, holy ones," and they "fell" after they became "enamored" with human women."
Haya the virgin is akin to Samael's counterpart Lilith, who seduces angels and can mean "to live or 'have life," or "to give" or "restore life"; (Genesis 25:6, Joshua 3:10), lively (2 Samuel 23:20), and reviving (Genesis 18:10, 2 Kings 4:16).
The seduction is akin to Nashiym, the Lilim, who seduced the watchers. Samael's counterpart and a mother of demons seen seducing the fallen angels as Naamah; after the fall, they had daughters: "Wholly new in the Kabbalistic concept of Lilith is her appearance as the permanent partner of Samael, queen of the realm of the forces of evil (the Sitra Ahra)."
