The Last Archangel by Michael Young

Bond by golden chains, Xandir faces his punishment for straying from his duties and willfully revealing the secrets of heaven to mankind, and is consigned to the role of Destroying Angel until the End of Time. He is given the assignment to destroy Pompeii, the city where a beautiful mortal woman has captured his heart, but cannot bring himself to do so, until coerced by a powerful High Seraph into fulfilling his duty. His love for this woman and remorse at her death propels him on a journey to free her from the constraints of death. Along the way, he is assigned an apprentice, Jarom, and together they brave the very jaws of hell itself to find the keys they need to bring her back.

Michael Young has masterfully woven a timeless story of good versus evil with his well-written characterizations of angels and demons engaged in relentless battle. His descriptions are both clever and witty making it easy to visualize Michael's intriguing story. So many times the end of a story will disappoint or not bring satisfaction, but not so with The Last Archangel, in fact, it will leave you wanting more.

Michael is a graduate of Brigham Young University with a degree in German Teaching and a minor in Music. He puts his German to good use by working to build online German courses for High School students. Though he grew up traveling the world with his military father, he now lives in Utah with his wife, Jen, and his two sons. Michael enjoys acting in community theater, playing and writing music and spending time with his family. He played for several years with the handbell choir Bells on Temple Square and is now a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

His first book, The Canticle Kingdom, was released in Feb 2010 through Bonneville Books. He is the author of an inspirational pamphlet, Portrait of a Mother, and has also had his works featured in  Mindflights, The New Era, Allegory, and the Ensign.
