A series of novels written by Thomas E. Sniegoski, The Fallen tells the story of Aaron Corbett, an Ordinary High School Student who, on his 18th birthday, begins developing strange abilities. He soon learns that he is a Nephilim, the offspring of an angel and a human woman. But Aaron isn't just any Nephilim. According to an ancient prophecy, he is the Redeemer, a Nephilim with the power to absolve the sins of Fallen Angels and send them back to Heaven.

When Verchiel, the leader of the Powers (warrior angels charged with wiping out all Nephilim), kills his foster parents and kidnaps his autistic younger brother Stevie, Aaron is forced to leave his small town with Camael, the former leader of the Powers who believes in the prophecy of the Redeemer and becomes Aaron's Mentor, and his pet dog Gabriel whom Aaron can talk to after the latter heals him.

There are four books in the series:

  • The Fallen
  • Leviathan
  • Aerie
  • Reckoning
