Fiction about the War in Heaven
October 21, 2013 11:35 AM Subscribe
I'm looking for books (or movies/tv, though I'd prefer written media) that deal with the War in Heaven, the fall of Lucifer, and the fallout from that. Basic, garden-variety conflicts between angels and demons would also be very welcome. Things along those lines I've liked and special snowflake details under the fold.

I've read and enjoyed Good Omens, the Lucifer-and-Hell bits of Sandman, Preacher and, y'know, Milton. In other media, I also liked the Prophecy movies and various bits of Supernatural.
Obviously, something like this is going to deal with Christianity and Christian mythology, but I would greatly prefer works that don't either assume that I am or try to convince me to become a Christian. I'm after more of a fun read kind of book than evangelism. It doesn't have to be great literature as long as it's entertaining and has badass (or at least interesting) angels.
Thanks very much!
