Moira just wants a normal life for her daughter, Penelope. And sometimes, it seems like she has achieved it. Penelope is a sweet, smart, and precocious four-year-old girl. However, she is also the product of Moira’s affair with an angel. Her parentage gives Penelope strength far beyond what any child should possess. It also makes her the target of fallen angels who intend to use her mysterious powers as their way back into Heaven. Worse yet, one of those fallen angels is her own father. Now, Moira finds herself caught up in a terrifying struggle for Penelope’s life against beings more powerful than she can imagine. And when Penelope’s true power is revealed, it will shake the foundations of reality.

Suspenseful and action-packed, Heaven’s Forgotten demonstrates the power of a mother’s love against the longest odds in Heaven and on earth.

Heaven’s Forgotten is a slow building plot that sneaks up on your when you least expect it and you find yourself hooked.

Moira is a single mom, down on her luck, with now support for herself and her young daughter, Penelope. She was disowned by her parents and the father of her daughter, Michael, is an angel so he’s not in the picture.

Michael is now fallen and is blaming Penelope for his fall. He also has some warped thinking that by kidnapping Penelope he will regain his place in Heaven. A chase across country with Michael and Penelope brings out an entirely different set of issues/enemies after the Nephilim children.

Moira must get her troubled act together to save her daughter and if anything is going to get her in shape you’d think that would be it.

Heaven’s Forgotten flips between Moira being the main perspective and other characters. I believe, I would have connected more with the story if it all came from Moira.

In the end, Heaven’s Forgotten still hit an emotional cord. I give kudos to Branden Johnson for this very original take on Nephilim, humanized characters (flaws and all) and being able to touch an emotional cord with his storytelling.

I received this copy of Heaven's Forgotten from Branden Johnson in exchange for a honest and voluntary review.
