Embrace Blog Tour Gust Post: Angels Have a Pecking Order

Today we are going to be joined by Jessica Shirvington, the author of The Violet Eden Chapters. The first book in her series released in the U.S. yesterday. She has graciously agreed to do a guest post and I hope you all enjoy:

Angels Have A Pecking Order

Researching for EMBRACE, I discovered the entire subject of Angelology to be truly fascinating. In the end, I chose to go with the most popular theory, that there are 3 choirs of angels and within each choir, 3 ranks.

At the top of the angel hierarchy sit the Seraphim. They are the angels that are supposed to burn with an all-consuming white flame and who perform the all-important role of maintaining the source of Existence within the physical world.

Following the Seraphim come the Cherubim, and Thrones. I always like the descriptions of the Thrones – bringers of justice.

In the second choir are Powers, Dominations and Virtues. And in the third choir – Principalities, Archangels and Angels (guardians).
