    Book details

Bishop Robert Patrick had no sympathy at all for the gang of stupid boys who'd befriended the demon. They'd been enthralled, to be sure, but that didn't entirely excuse their complacency. It had taken him years to track down the demon, the skotos, but he'd finally cornered it in Los Angeles. The city, Robert discovered, was positively teeming with hedonists and homosexuals, tweakers and twits, deviants and demons. Despite the attractive, human form the skotos had assumed, Robert recognized it. The time to act had come. The demon would be put back where it belonged, contained among the treasures of the Church for the rest of time. True, matters were complicated by the crew of stupid, stupid boys. Maybe they were clueless, and therefore innocent, but it didn't matter. Robert had everything he needed: the ancient vessel of brass, the enthusiastic support of the Church, and through obvious signs and inspiration the unquestionable direction of the Divine. The final confrontation was inevitable, sweeping aside the sinful and the sacred alike. Unfortunate about the boys. Robert would pray for them. In this startling and deeply moving conclusion to The Fallen, Joshua Dagon takes his characters and his readers on an exhilarating ride generously filled with humor, excitement, personal exploration, and often surprising wisdom. For three months, Nick, Darren, and their friends have been living it up with the generosity of the fallen angel, Marbas. But another ancient and powerful demon has been chasing Marbas, with plans of her own... Without compromising his clear compassion for every one of his characters, Joshua Dagon takes an unflinching look at the perils of blind faith, prejudice, and arrogance. Demon Tears leaves us with the hope that even the most desperate of us can ultimately become more than what we are.

Readers will not be disappointed... Joshua Dagon has such a way with the English language that he could probably breathe life into the most mundane experience... The novel's concept alone is new and exciting; a genre that has been virtually untouched in gay literature, and Joshua Dagon touches it with great style. --Amos Lassen, Literary Pride Joshua Dagon is a novelist, playwright, and columnist. He lives in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    This is a review for both Fallen and Demon's tearsI can see how this author can deserve the criticism of being extremely wordy and needing tighter edit in some places for both books. But no, I am not taking the stars off for this. I am not writing a review as a professional literary critique, I am writing a review as a reader, and ESL reader at that, so while I can notice some glaring linguistic problems, my main issue is whether the book satisfied me. And this one and its sequel "Demon's tears" delivered such satisfaction and more. I love the books that play with fallen angels' mythology and do some creative spin on it, I especially love the books which dare to be sympathetic to fallen angels, it is appealing to me. I love how human boys (Nick and his friends are portrayed), how compassionate this author seems to be to basically all of his characters. It is a wonderful thriller that as other reviewer noticed just happen to have gay characters as main players, it is a love story too, story of understanding each other, your good and bad sides, story of wanting to grow, to redeem oneself, I loved it.

    I love these books so much- the philosophical aspects of the story are as much the reason to read as the actual events. Demons and compassion, angels and choice... absolutely brilliant! I stumbled across these in a local book store, and now I have them on Kindle and in hard copy, I like them that much!

    This novel brings the story of Marbas the Black (AKA Scott) and his human friends to its conclusion, where our angelic, fallen friend meets his secular enemy, with bishops Patrick and Michael interfering with clumsy bigotry (the scene of the two mimicking a gay couple is exhilarating).Although maybe a little overlong and wordy (a bit of editing would have helped), this novel is a wonderful celebration of love and friendship, offering also a very unusual approach at fantasy.
