Overview
The former archangel Lucifer thinks he can prove a point by destroying Mortals completely but Sophia, Senior Servant of the Heavenly Host, is determined to thwart his planand resist his temptations. As a created angel, she witnessed his fall from Heaven with horror but when shes assigned to carry out The Testings of Devotion, she discovers just how strong the lure of Earth can be. Luckily, the archangel Gabriel is there to support her but his mysterious disappearances and silence about the fate of Sophias predecessor are disturbing. Her three assistants, the Selected Servants, also come with challenges one moment they work with complete dedication and the next they openly rebel. As Lucifers power on Earth grows, he struggles to control his unruly army of Grigori, who are offspring of the original fallen angels. His grip of evil tightens around the seven Mortals chosen to be part of the Testings of Devotion just as Gabriel reveals there is a traitor within the Kingdom of Heaven. Still subject to Lucifers subtle attempts at seduction, Sophia begins to doubt her abilities to complete her assignments and fears she will disappoint both Gabriel and the Almighty Divine. When thrown into a direct confrontation with her adversary, she finally realizes who is truly being tested and witnesses the surprising power of complete submission.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A book worth reading  Feb 20, 2010
I just recently finished reading the book "The Testings of Devotion", which is part of The Heavenly Host Series by Cheryl Dellasega.

I was eager to open it's pages as I had never read a fiction book of this nature (0ther than The Shack, and that didn't deal with angels to this degree).

Let's get started on the review:

Front Cover: I loved the cover. I am definitely drawn to books first by their cover and then by their title and this one grabbed my attention immediately. It was beautifully done and depicted the nature of the book.

Back Cover: The back cover was simple. I felt its content was very specific and intriguing. It was well written and done in a way that would draw a potential reader further into its pages.

Inside Content: I am fully convinced of the work of Angels on behalf of those of us here on earth. This book was written in such a way that the reader is left constantly wondering how those workings really take place. Throughout the pages Ms. Dellasega weaves a story of intrigue and suspense, joy and hope and even sadness when it seems that all is lost in the lives of a "mortal".

I will not do this story justice by trying to explain it. If you want to read more about it, check out the site Heavenly Host Books.

I will say that it was well worth reading. I felt it was well written and for someone who loves this kind of fiction it will be an enjoyable read. I would say on a scale of 1 to 10 I'd give it a 7. I give it this rating because I don't tend to read this type of fiction and it took me awhile to get into it. However, once I did get into it, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Much like the Shack, it must be read without a "religious" mindset. I loved envisioning heaven and the heavenly hosts going about their business on a daily basis. I loved wondering how as I go about my day they are surrounding me and I don't even know it. I am not sure I agreed with the angels bringing adversity to strengthen the believers and I'm not sure what my thoughts are in regards to them still being tempted to follow Lucifer after His initial casting out. But, it is fiction and so I was able to read it objectively and would more than likely read it's sequels.
