What I liked about this book was the addition of further strands to the existing plot, particularly the appearance of a modern character. I also found the horror of hell more apparent in this book - I found myself physically shuddering at the painful descriptions littering the book on more than one occasion.
I think it's taken until now to realise that since this is set in Hell no one actually dies from injury, which makes the extent to which characters can be physically traumatised even more horrific. What I found tough going was the quality of writing which seems, after picking up in Book II, to have been sacrificed in order to meet publishing deadlines, I think , and the fact that there are way too many characters with very similar names - sometimes it seems like most of the descriptive content is taken up with detailing what each of a large number of characters are doing at any given moment.
Tough going, and not really enhancing the plot in any meaningful way. Maybe it's just my tired brain All said, with Limbo on the ropes and a huge plot-bomb dropped in the very last line, I'm really looking forward to Book IV. Feb 15, Andrew Macrae added it.

And Uriel said to me: "Here shall stand the angels who have connected themselves with women, and their spirits assuming many different forms are defiling mankind and shall lead them astray into sacrificing to demons 'as gods', here shall they stand, till 'the day of' the great judgment in which they shall be judged till they are made an end of.
And the women also of the angels who went astray shall become sirens. Uriel then acts as a guide for Enoch for the rest of the Book of Watchers. He fulfills this capacity in many of the other books that make up 1 Enoch. In the traditions and hagiography of the Episcopal and other Anglican churches, Uriel is mentioned as an archangel.
He is recognized as the Patron Saint of the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Oh holy Saint Uriel, intercede for us that our hearts may burn with the fire of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Assist us in co-operating with the graces of our confirmation that the gifts of the Holy Spirit may bear much fruit in our souls. Obtain for us the grace to use the sword of truth to pare away all that is not in conformity to the most adorable Will of God in our lives, that we may fully participate in the army of the Church Amen . The longstanding motto of the University of Oxford , Dominus illuminatio mea "The Lord, my light" or, if est is appended to the original and interpolated in translation, "The Lord is my light" is a translation into Latin of Uriel's name.

According to the teaching of the modern Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn , Uriel is the archangel of North and of Earth, and is thus associated with the vegetation of the Earth.
