I vaguely remember bits and pieces.

There is divinity (God and angels) which resembles Christianity. Devil-representative starts a fight. They are banished by God. There is rift and an angel named Helm (not sure) is guarding the rift.

When everything is over, The God is asked "Is everything OK in your cosmos?" by a higher power.

Rings any bell?
Kallor shrugged. 'I've walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I've commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I've spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'

'Yes' said Caladan Brood. 'You never learn'

My brain went "Scar Night by Alan Campbell"? But after going to look at the blurb, I think probably actually no, I've confused Helm with "Hael" (it's been a long time since I read this one).

Thanks cupi. I read the blurb and I don't think it is Scar Night.

The name of the angel might not be "Helm". It was a battle-related name and he was the defender of the rift. Can't remember much :(

My first thought was The Sundering by Jacqueline Carey, but I don't think that sounds quite right either. I've only read the first book (Banewreaker). They are basically gods, rather than angels, and the leader of the good guys (who are the bad guys from the book's POV) is called Haomane, but doesn't seem to be especially a guardian of a rift.

There appears to be a guardian god called Helm in the Forgotten Realms D&D setting, could it have been something to do with that? (Apparently there's another series, also called The Sundering, which features a book about Helm by Troy Denning.)

I don't think it was a series, but rather, a standalone novel. Can't remember anything else :(
