The Whispers of the Fallen Blog Tour
Title: The Whispers of the Fallen
Author: J.D. Netto
Summary from www.jdnetto.com:
Ever since the dawn of days, rumors about the Diary of Lucifer echoed throughout Elysium. Hidden from all human knowledge, the Diary was kept a secret, locked away in the small village of Agalmath.
Isaac and Demetre find themselves in a dangerous journey as they uncover the truth about the Diary and those who guarded it for all these years. However, for Isaac and Demetre, danger lies at every step, hidden in the most unexpected places.
Hunted by the Nephilims and the Fallen Stars, they must find others who will join them in the battle against the coming darkness.
Welcome to the Dark Side! It’s a fight of good vs. evil with Lucifer and his minions fighting against The Creator (or shall we say God) and thise fighting for good. Lucifer is trying to destroy human kind and will stop at absolutely nothing…obviously. This is a very interesting concept for a book and a brilliant idea. I think that everyone would enjoy reading this story but if you were brought up believing in God or reading the bible, going to Sunday school…etc. you would understand and appreciate certain underlying messages in this story even more.
For the most part I enjoyed reading this story. I think that it was very unique from anything else I have ever read. It’s definitely not a feel good type of novel. If you enjoy your books dark and sinister and enjoy reading a book where the good guy doesn’t always come out on top ( a bit of a break from the norm) you will enjoy reading this book. Also, the language was kept clean.
The writing was easy to follow, no need to look up big words in the dictionary. It was kept pretty simple, cut and dry. I would have liked a bit more conversation and got to know the characters a little bit more. It was hard for me to connect with any of them or even care about them. The scenes seemed to change quickly and for me I like a little bit more meat to my story. I don’t know, I just couldn’t get into this one. Everyone had their own preferences. The story line itself was very interesting and loved the whole idea. I just wish I could have cared about these characters. I just needed to know them better.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Born in a small town in Brazil, J.D. relocated to the United States during the late years of his childhood. At an early age, J.D. discovered his passion for fantasy stories and alternate universes. Immersed in worlds created by Tolkien, Michael Crichton, C.S. Lewis and J.K. Rowling, J.D. found his own writing voice when he had the idea for his first book series. ‘What if Lucifer had a Diary? What if the Diary was a secret? What if the secret was a reality?’
These simple questions were the initial spark of inspiration for J.D.’s first literary work. After six years, he self-published his first novel, The Whispers of the Fallen, on November 30th, 2012, which was then picked up by Untreed Reads and re-released in August 2013. The Whispers of the Fallen series has become a prominent presence in YA literature, captivating thousands of readers worldwide. The sequel, Rebellion, was released at BookCon 2014 in New York City. The third book in the series, The Gathering of Shadows, was released on Halloween 2015.
Today, J.D. Netto joined the OfTomes family, a micro-publishing house founded by internet sensation, Benjamin of Tomes. The new editions of The Whispers of the Fallen books will be hitting shelves on Halloween 2016.
