Summary from Goodreads:
Ever since the dawn of days, rumors about the Diary of Lucifer echoed throughout Elysium. Hidden from all human knowledge, the Diary was kept a secret, locked away in the small village of Agalmath. Isaac and Demetre find themselves in a dangerous journey as they uncover the truth about the Diary and those who guarded it for all these years.
Hunted by the Nephilins and the Fallen Stars, they must find others who will join them in the battle against the coming darkness.
The Whispers of the Fallen by J.D Netto was a fun, interesting, fast paced book. It was written in two point of views, one was the protagonist, Isaac, while the other was the antagonist. Reading both point of views was really interesting and it definitely have two perspectives of the novel. I really enjoyed this book but I felt at times it was a bit too fast paced. I definitely recommend it to any age group and readers who love fantasy and/ or mystery. Reading this book you could definitely see the hard work Netto put into writing this book and it shows how 6 years of hard work definitely pays off later!
J.D. Netto has a unique style of writing books. The language, the sentences and the characters he formed were great examples of a unique style. He created an idea and instead of rushing through the book when writing it, he spent 6 years making the world come alive before our eyes. At times I felt a bit confused of the worlds and what Tristar was but later reading this book everything made more sense. I felt that loosing Demetre in the first few chapters was a big loss of a great character. Isaac's character was strong, bold and brave and after the encounter with God he became even more stronger. I loved his character development from the first few pages of the novel to the end where we killed the antagonist. Devin was probably my favourite character throughout the book. Even though his kind was evil, in order for redemption he tried really hard. The effort he put in protecting Isaac represented how strong he was. Even though he was betraying his kind he knew what he was doing was for the best. Netto's idea of this angelic war and the Diary of Lucifer was original and definitely a start to an amazing book. Isaac and Demetre are caught up in the middle of a battle an Isaac's blood is what is needed to open the first diary. I loved the suspense in this book and when more diaries were added into this case, I was like screaming because that's how suspenseful it became. Each diary holds a body part of Lucifer and in order to bring Lucifer back these special people have to pour their blood on top of the book and read it. There were a lot of unexpected twists and turns during this book which made me not out down this book. The suspense was killing me overnight to see how this book ended! I can't wait for the next book in this series. I definitely recommend it to people who love action filled books with fantasy and mystery filled in them. Netto has written an absolutely beautiful book about how Heaven and the Underworld mix together in war.
