    1. I received this book for free from !I must say that I've never been so completely wrong about a book in my life!I picked up this novel back in May and read the first couple of pages, and at that time it was just "one of those books" that I just couldn't get into. Apparently it must have had something to do with my mind set at that time!I picked up Though Heaven Fall: A Medieval Parable again last week and to my immense pleasure found that my original opinion was way off mark! This story is one o [...]


    2. I wish I had the words to describe how deeply and moved I was in reading Though Heaven Fall. This is definitely one that I will read again sometime soon. It's been over a week since I read it and I can't stop thinking about it. It not only intrigued me simply as a fine story well told, but it also compelled me to look deep within myself and examine my own attitudes. Both spirituality and story telling at their best. Beautiful -- just beautiful.


    3. When I pick up a book, the things that really grab me are characterization, plot and how the author writes. Jeri Westerson has a way with words and that is apparent in this book as well as in her others. With extensive knowledge of this period, she is able to weave complex characters into a story that is compelling and intriguing. Edric the "hero" of the story is a flawed character. When done right, this is my favorite kind of character, and this was done right. If at the end of the story, there [...]


    4. At the very moment I began reading Though Heaven Fall, I was reminded of Gabriel Marquez’s short story A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings. Westerson’s wonderfully written medieval tale, parable, gives readers Edric who is a cripple:these features were situated on heaping, uneven shoulders and legs of two lengths with a twisted foot at the end of the shorter one…and rescues a person who claims to be an angel, Azriel. The attention Westerson gives her story meets up there with some very good [...]


    5. What happens when an outcast thief accidentally saves -- an angel? That's the question that this book attempts to answer. Jeri Westerson has demonstrated her grasp of medieval history and mysticism through her Crispin Guest mystery series, and her strengths shine through in this novel. Edric lives on the fringes of society and survives by a little thieving, a little music-making. And by saving the life of a -- man? -- who claims to be an angel fallen from heaven, Edric finds himself in the middl [...]


    6. Jeri Westerson is one of my favorite authors -- hands down. Her Crispin Guest books, about a medieval knight-turned-solver of mysteries, are amazing -- all thoroughly researched and filled with authentic details and facts about the time period. I love all of them. This parable is a departure from her series, but it is also a mystery of sorts as the reader tries to pin down the identity of the mad monk. What I liked is that the story is really about finding the identity of everyone involved, and, [...]


    7. Another fine offering from author Jeri Westerson! This medieval tale incorporates elements of both mystery and fantasy against a well-researched historical background. Westerson, author of the Crispin Guest medieval knight mystery series, here tells the story of Edric, an outcast wanderer who survives by his wits (and a little thievery). He rescues a man who calls himself Azriel, and who claims to be a fallen angel. The tale unwinds from there, with some clever plot twists. Westerson's usual str [...]


    8. Though Heaven Fall is different than Jeri Westerson's Edmund Crispin "medieval noir" books. Yet it is still a thought-provoking tale populated with her well-developed and multidimensional characters. There have been a number of reviews with a synosis of the book, so I won't repeat one here. Suffice it to say, this was a great read, one that left me thinking long after the last page had been turned. What always amazes me is how Jeri creates such symathetic characters, even with their flaws. She m [...]


    9. A parable is defined as "a simple story used to illustrate a moral or spiritual lesson". That is what this book calls itself and rightly so. This is more complex than the parables in the Bible. There are more characters and each has their own plot thread. But they all have have a lesson to learn and to teach. But the book is in no way heavy-handed with preaching. Each character learns through through their experiences. And so can the reader.I received a free copy of this book through the First R [...]


    10. Audiobook review (narrator Joel Froomkin - 5 STARS)Very odd experience. I started this book twice, but still couldn't get into the story. Nothing makes sense to me in this 'historical fantasy', so this review will be short.I always love Joel Froomkin and he does a great job in this book as well with a British accent. So if I had to continue the book, it would be because of him.*This book was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review.


    11. Though Heaven Fall is a departure from the books I have read in the past by Jeri Westerson. The book took me awhile to get into it, but once I did I had to keep reading. The act of being a Good Samaritan can lead you to place you do not want to go and some you are happy it does. . I won a copy of the book on .


    12. It took me awhile to get through this book. It isn't long, but I literally felt pulled down by the angst being experienced by every single character. That being said, it ultimately is a "parable" of hope and faith, with a satisfying conclusion. And it's engagingly well written, like all of Jeri Westerson's books.


    13. It's hard work writing a parable that is powerful but not heavy-handed, interesting without losing the point. This isn't that kind of parable, and the story itself seemed poorly organized, threaded together haphazardly, with too much preaching and not enough developing.


    14. Beautifly written story about frienship, faith and humanity. I highly recommend everyone read Though Heaven Falls, as there is a message for each one of us and will touch each reader in some way.Hats off to Ms. Westerson for another entertaining and moving work of art.


    15. I enjoyed this book very much, it is not something I usually read (listen) but I was pleasantly surprised! The audiobook version was amazing, with great quality voice-work and an engaging story.




    16. A beautiful book.'s mystical, but not WEIRD. Just a great story, set in medieval times, with a surprising ending. (Don't peek)
