"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:

Pitch: In pre-historical times, a young girl escaping a barbarian ritual encounters an angel. The mystical being falls in love with her and from them are born generations of angel/humans.

Synopsis: At the beginning of creation, the Archangel of Light, after becoming enthralled with humanity hides in a black hole for ages. But when commanded to return to earth he finds a prehistoric tribe. 
After observing them, ready to continue exploring, he comes upon a marsh that becomes his paradise on earth until a virgin escaping a ritual arrives. Enthralled by her mysterious powers he falls for her and is damned for eternity. His name becomes Ayekah and she Haya. He wants her to stay but she abandons him, and he is damned for eternity. Forsaken he goes away but returns to get her back and becomes an agent of a destiny she is bound to fulfill.

Mythology and Historical References: Ayekah The Damned is loosely based in the history and myth of ancient people in north and Mesoamerica; their Rites, Sacred Spaces, Underworld and Stone Tablets. His name is akin to Genesis 3:9. When 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."
 Haya the 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: 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)."

Book II


A passionate and mystical tale about the love between a woman and an angel.
Synopsis: Ayekah discovers Haya's mysterious powers and mission; she knows what she wants and how to get it.  In order to remain with her, Ayekah realizes he must help her birth generations of angel/humans and reform her culture. After her death, when not in her crypt, he roams the earth until modern times when she gives him an unusual command.

Paranormal - Approx. 50,000 words

Synopsis: The saga of mystery and otherworldly powers continues after generation of female twins are born from Haya’s fetus. One is fertile and gives birth to twins; the other is the watcher and guide.
Like moss on a stone of destiny, they overcome terrifying ordeals. Beautiful and haunting, endowed with a sixth sense, they rebel but cannot deny that their otherworldly encounters are beyond their control. 
Ayekah forms The Retais to safeguard and influence them, but they are fearless, even when confounded by terrifying events and apparitions.
