It gives me an excuse to read something potentially outside my usual choice which I always think is important for expanding your horizons. The author is known for his talent of thriller writing such as his Detective Alec Ramsey series of seven individual books. He specialises in thriller, crime and the occult. He even includes his partner and dog as another key character. Throughout the story, Conrad reminds the reader to check out the included facts through Google! Within the bank of the story, Conrad is investigating links between the Order of the Nine Angels and several unsolved murders.
He discovers many a terrifying truth as well as the enormity of anarchic groups such as this one. The Nine Angels know of his work and naturally are not happy with what he is doing so make a bid to keep him quiet by way of setting him up with the police, intimidation and attempted murders. How he managed to carry on with his research without cracking up, I have no idea!
He has one constant ally and friend throughout the whole story. However, in his 'cosmic trilogy' fiction , the Christian writer C S Lewis associates 'heavenly beings' and planets, which each planet in our solar system having its own heavenly being. So we don't really know how many archangels there are, but there's one for certain and that's Michael.
We are told that he is 'one of the chief princes', 'the great prince', 'a mighty warrior' and 'leader of other angels'. He is God's enforcer of law and judgement and is the only angel specifically called an archangel in the Bible 7.
Order of Nine Angles
There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people--everyone whose name is found written in the book--will be delivered. And there was war in heaven.

Michael appears to have a special role in guarding the nation of Israel and the Jewish people. In Jewish tradition, Michael is the author of Psalm 85, which is a sad poem about the suffering of the nation of Israel. He has also been associated with the 'man' who spoke to Joshua at the battle of Jericho 8. Joshua went up to him and asked, "Are you for us or for our enemies? Joshua In his role as chief warrior angel, it could well be Michael's voice that announces the return of Jesus to earth 9. He is often depicted wearing medieval armour, ready for battle - very appropriate for his warrior role!
In some Christian traditions, Michael is said to have appeared to Mary Jesus' mother to tell her that she would die soon and that he carried her deceased body into heaven. Some Catholics believe that Mary didn't die but that she was taken straight to heaven, by Michael or by Jesus. In Islam, Michael is known as Mikail and the Koran says that he sheds tears over the sins of the faithful and these tears become the angels known as the Cherubim.
The name Gabriel means 'God's Hero' and he is God's special messenger angel. On several occasions in the Bible he is given the job of coming to earth to give important announcements and tell of special events Therefore, consider the message and understand the vision: Daniel Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to give him the name John.

So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Luke So it was Gabriel who had the amazing job of telling Mary that she would be the mother of Jesus, the king of the universe! It's also highly likely that it was Gabriel who spoke to Joseph and told him that Mary would have a special baby called Jesus Nowhere in the Bible is Gabriel called an archangel, although in Jewish folklore he is one of the seven archangels. In Daniel it says that Gabriel arrives in 'swift flight', but it doesn't mention wings! Swift flight could just mean quickly! Another important rank of angels are Archangels.
