Raphael by RA MacAvoy cover by Geoff Taylor - art by Geoff Taylor


A figure of a man, Archangel, sitting on rock surrounded by mountains and above him are two dragons fighting in a shaft of light.

Synopsis for Original Title

Weakened by his contact with mortals, the Archangel Raphael falls prey to his brother Lucifer, who strips him of his angelic powers. Sold in the Moorish slave markets, confused and humbled by his sudden humanity, Raphael finds his only solace in the friendship of the dark skinned Berber woman Djoura, and the spiritual guardianship of his former pupil Damiano Delstrego
