Book Release - Michael: Path of Angels

Today is release day for Patrica Josephine's Michael: Path of Angels!


There is only one path.

Born mortal along with his three brothers, Michael is an Archangel with a specific role: hunt fallen angels and send them back to Hell. He is determined in his mission, never straying from his appointed path, until he meets Lake Divine, and discovers there may be more to his beliefs than blind duty.

But Lake is not who he seems. Offspring of a human and a fallen angel, a Nephilim, Lake must choose his own destiny: give in to the coldness and embrace the dark, or seek the light and rise above the sins of his father.


Two paths lay before them, but only one has the potential to destroy them both.

Available for purchase at Amazon for only .99 cents!

What are Nephilims?

I forget how I stumbled upon nephilims for the story. They just seem like something everyone should know what they are. The offspring of “the sons of God” and “the daughters of man” according to Genisis 6:4. (Although in my story, it isn’t just sons of God getting busy with daughters of man.) The name is also used to reference giants who inhabited Canaan. I’ve seen them in other stories. Recently, I read the first book in a series called “The Nephilim Chronicles”. Nephilims seem to fascinate us.

Why is that?

Maybe it’s because they are part human so we relate to them better than angels, fallen or not. Or we like the idea of being human but having amazing powers, and sometimes, wings. I know I wouldn’t complain about wings. Well, maybe a little. Zade did point out in Michael that they were bulky and caused accidents. Flying isn’t as easy as Joe would attest. He broke his leg trying to fly. It could be we all dream of escaping our normal lives. Finding out we are something more is a fantasy that temps us all.

Either way, nephilims are fascinating creatures. They have much potential for adventure that we find them hard to resist. What do you think is the appeal of nephilims?

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.

You can find Patricia on her website, Twitter, Google+, Wattpad, and Goodreads.

Thank you for stopping by Patricia! Good luck with your book release. 

Did you guys already know what a nephilim was? Who's your favorite archangel? What do you think of the cover?

May you find your Muse.

    1. I had someone else not know what nephilims were and it kind of stumped me. It just seems like something most people have heard of. LOL

  2. Michael is my favorite angel. I've read so many stories and theories about nephilim and I think one of the things about them is the many possibilities of what powers they have or even if they're good or evil.

    1. I recently read a book that gave a twist on nephilims that I hadn't seen yet. They are great fodder for stories.

  3. I guess we have to read this to find out how Michael does. The nephilim are great sources for stories and glad Patricia has added this one.

  5. Cover is great, and I love the story line. Nephiliums--when I was reading Genesis ? I think, curiosity hit me. This could be an interesting direction.
