“A chain of advertising agencies, a new breed of humans, and a fallen angel to worship…
Andel Talistokov is known for his slick advertising agencies across the globe. He is a fallen angel that uses advertising as a weapon for Satan’s work. His growing power emboldens him to break several of Hell’s Commandments. Furious with his arrogance, Satan commands him to return to Hell after finding his own replacement. Yezidism, an ancient angel worshiping religion, quietly expands throughout the West.
Main Song: Possum Kingdom by the Toadies
The song has such a seductive, evil sound to it that inspired my writing.
Cocaine by Eric Clapton
Main character, Joanna Easterhouse, has addiction problems. Cocaine put her in jail for a couple of years.
She Talks to Angels by Black Crowes
Maria, Joanna’s 6 year old niece, spent a great deal of time with her grandmother. Angels are involved.
One Last Breath by Creed
This song is about suicide. Joanna’s brother, Will, kills himself as a teen.
Soul to Squeeze by Red Hot Chili Peppers
Andel/Armaros collects souls via his advertising empire.
Bad Romance by Lady Gaga
Refers to Joanna’s beginning romance with Tony.
Halo by Beyonce
The title and the story line has a halo in it.
Like a Prayer by Madonna
Characters pray to Satan and his fallen.
We Belong by Pat Benatar
Great love song that goes with Joanna’s and Tony’s feelings for each other.
Ending song: Free Fallin by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Song resolves many things but leaves openings for the sequel that I’m currently working on.
