They must fight to stay on the path.
Joe embraces his duty without fear or hesitation, always ready for the next battle. But the path has never been easy. With Michael’s return, they uncover a truth more dangerous than they ever imagined. Their enemy plans to unleash the devil himself, Lucifer. Help comes in the form of an unlikely alley: a member of the fallen.
Mariangela is trying to make amends by protecting the child she is carrying. After blindly following Lucifer in the rebellion, her misguided allegiance came with a price: banishment from heaven. Now, as she strives for forgiveness in the human world, she must fight to prevent Uriel, a fallen archangel, from using her child to free evil from Hell.
The path becomes a battleground, one which may already be lost.

Meet Jophiel! the joker in the group! but he knows when to be serious. Sometimes you wouldn’t think he would be an archangel. Here is an interview with him:
1––Let’s start with the basics. Tell us a bit about yourself and what makes you tick.
Joe: Hi, my name is Joe and I’m an alcoholic. KIDDING! I shouldn’t joke about that. Especially for Zade’s sake. *Joe flops down on a couch, kicking his leg up on the coffee table* I’m the oldest of us four. The comedian. Don’t listen to Gabe. Nothing diffuses tension better than a joke. I do have a serious side to me. What we do is dangerous and one misstep could get us killed. I won’t risk my brothers.
2––Do you have any hobbies, favorite TV shows, books? Anything you fangirl/boy over?
Joe: Call of Duty, but I don’t get to play it much. I guess I’m living in a video game in a way now. Not sure that’s better. Video games aren’t as life threatening. Unless you count, spending way too much time sitting and playing instead of moving.
3––What is one thing from your past you’re most proud of?
Joe: Jumping off the church in my hometown and trying to fly. None of my brothers wanted to. They were content to stay on the ground. Come on, you have to be daring and willing to bust your leg.
5––Let’s play favorites:
Pepsi or Coke?
Joe: Whatever one wants to sponsor me. *grins*
Pie or Cake?
Joe: What about Pie with cake filling? You feeling me?
White or dark chocolate?
Joe: I’ll take both. Why discriminate? *winks*
Playstation 4 or Xbox 1or WiiU?
Joe: Xbox 1 baby!
Paperback book or ebook?
Joe: Reading? Ugh.
Summer or winter?
Joe: Actually, I prefer fall. Not too hot, not too cold. Plus, there’s Halloween and I firmly believe you are never to big to play dress up. Especially when free candy is involved.
Puppies or kittens?
Joe: Kittens all the way.
Vampires or werewolves?
Joe: Witches. They are much hotter than a corpse or fur ball.
My Review of Jophiel
by Cleo deLancey
Another great read in the Path of Angels series: 5 Stars.
I very much enjoyed this addition to the Path of Angels series. This is not a “stand alone” book as the importance of the information and dynamics of the characters in the previous two books (Michael, book one, and Zadekiel, book 2) are paramount to the enjoyment and understanding of the plot, as a whole, in this, the third installment.
This book delves deeper into the character of Jophiel (Joe) who is also an Archangel. The group gets to learn more about Lake, Michael’s boyfriend, as Michael returns to the group to continue the mission of stopping Lucifer from taking human form and unleashing hell on earth.
Enter, Mariangela, also a fallen. She is pregnant and remorseful of her role in the rebellion of some of the angels. She harbors a secret that is vital to the group of four (Michael, Zadekiel, Jophiel and Gabriel). She is fearful of them as she knows their duty is to banish all the fallen and their offspring back into hell.
Author, Patricia Josephine, has written a tense, descriptive script that moved the plot further towards the ultimate showdown with the leader of the fallen and his minions.
I enjoyed learning about Joe and his special abilities. There is an interesting plot twist in this one that I wasn’t expecting.
About the Author:
Patricia Josephine never set out to become a writer. In fact, she never considered it an option during high school and college. She was all about art. On a whim, she wrote down a story bouncing in her head. That was the start of it and she hasn’t regretted a moment. She writes young adult under the name Patricia Lynne.
Patricia lives with her husband in Michigan, hopes one day to have what will resemble a small petting zoo, has a fondness for dying her hair the colors of the rainbow, and an obsession with Doctor Who.
