ON WINGS OF IMMORTALS - SERIES


                                                                       Book I

The Sylph’s Tale



THE SYLPH'S TALE, is brief but essential as it introduces Ayekah, once Archangel of Light and Haya, a virgin escaping rape. 

Synopsis: Ayekah is damned after falling for Haya. But when Haya abandons him, caught between heaven and damnation, Ayekah must accept a destiny she must fulfill.  

Comments by editors and from competitions:
"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."

Note to readers: Thanks for purchasing THE SYLPH"S TALE. Your reviews and comments help me when writing the series. In gratitude, I will offer you free copies of Ayekah The Damned upon publication. 

Available on Amazon and D2D and has excellent comments by readers.

A provocative tale about an Archangel seduced by a mystical Virgin.

Mythology and Historical References:

Ayekah The Damned is loosely based in the history and myth that includes: ancient people in north and Mesoamerica, their Rites, Sacred Spaces, the Underworld, and Stone Tablets.
The fallen angel is akin to Genesis 3:9. After Adam and Eve eat from the forbidden tree, God asked Adam, "where are you" or "ayeka" in Hebrew. Also, Samael's fallen angel as the "watchers, holy ones" and they "fell" after they became "enamored" with human women." Also, "the Greek transcriptions of Grigori.[17] and Enoch (10.4),[18] link the angel's transgression with the great deluge.[19]"

The innocent virgin is akin to Samael's counterpart Lilith who seduces angels. Haya 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 of the Archangel by the Virgin 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)."

Beautiful and haunting, endowed with a sixth sense, they rebel but cannot deny that their otherworldly encounters are beyond their control.
