Overview

Electrifying from its explosive first scene to its unexpected and shocking conclusion, Angel City revisits the unforgettable characters from The Watchers to reveal more of the earthly—and otherworldy—mysteries of the Angelus trilogy.


Katherine Taylor, ex-escort, and Jay Harper, private detective, no longer remember each other. They no longer remember the cosmic battle they fought against the Nephilim. In fact, the only memory of the events of their pasts takes the form of a child, Katherine’s infant son, Max, who has, unbeknown to anyone, stirred the interest of the same vengeful spirits.…


Meanwhile, from the shadows steps a defrocked priest named Astruc, whose face looks as if it has been clawed by some terrible beast and who hides his eyes behind blue lenses. He and his brilliant young ward have discovered something unfathomable in the catacombs under Paris—something that will confirm that “the time of the prophecy” is at hand.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
“Seriously ramps up the action....Fans of The Watchers won’t want to miss this one.”—Booklist

“Steele’s sequel to 2012’s The Watchers does everything the middle of a trilogy should do…a brutal cliff-hanger…accessible to readers who missed the first book.”—Publishers Weekly

Praise for The Watchers

“A SEDUCTIVE COSMIC THRILLER.”—Booklist (Starred Review)

“A MODERN THRILLER MASTERPIECE…ONE HELL OF A ROLLER-COASTER RIDE.”—Popcorn Reads

“DIABOLICAL.”—Kirkus Reviews

“READS LIKE PARADISE LOST BY WAY OF JOHN CONNOLLY…although Steele…brings hard-edged modernity to this timeless tale as he roots his depiction of evil in the contemporary world. Clever, stylish, and epic in scale, it’s a tremendously satisfying debut.”—The Irish Times

“AN IMAGINATIVELY METAPHYSICAL THRILLER.…Steele keeps his tale tantalizingly ambiguous, casting it with fey characters and skillfully concealing until the climax whether apparent weird events haven’t been manipulated to make them seem so. This solidly plotted tale, the first in a trilogy, will appeal to readers who like a hint of uncanny in their fiction.”—Publishers Weekly

“FAITH, LOVE, LUST, MURDER, INNOCENCE, DANGEROUS DEMONS, FALLEN ANGELS…meld together in to one glorious, spellbinding, addicting story that readers won’t soon forget.…The Watchers delivers a one-two punch of good versus evil in a fresh, unique, and decadent manner…brilliant enough to capture the attention of romantics, religious zealots, and historian buffs alike. Not just good, but DAMN good. I didn’t just like it. I LOVED it, and it’s a rare treat for me to experience such pleasure. A must read. Seriously.”—Luxury Reading

    The sequel to The Watchers (Angelus Trilogy 1). One of things that bothered me about the first book was lack of clarity. I am happy to say the author has kept his sub-plots a lot clearer this time.
    The scene with Harper and the terrorists was well-written and finally elevated him out of the murky confusion of the first book.
    The cathedral wasn't a focal point this time, which is a shame and I have to admit to missing the character Marc Rochat.
    The descriptions of the cathedral and his role as the Quasimodo-esque watcher in the bellfry was one of the things that I remember vividly and enjoyed the most from the previous book.
    I am not sure why it was necessary to have a romantic liaison between Katherine and one of the Swiss Guard.It seemed as if the author was trying to steer her in the direction of the opposite gender, due to the past abuse by multiple men. The female guard was also portrayed as being motherly towards Max. That didn't gel well for me. Being a female doesn't automatically mean you will melt at the mere sight of a chubby cheeked cherub or turn into molten mommy lava if the baby happens to coo at you. The relationship between Max and his mother takes up a lot of story. He is cute, we get it but cute doesn't cut it through an entire book of complex ancient angel warfare.
    Ideally I am hoping that book 3 has the complexity of the first and the clarity of the second book. Not much to ask for eh? I am sure the author will be able to balance that creative surge and the evolution of his ideas on paper.
    I received a copy of this book via Netgalley.

    I recommend you read The Watchers before reading this book--you will appreciate it more.  There is a lot going on in this book, however the author chooses to use a lot of dialogue to present expalinations for past events, now times, and future possiblities.  It is well woven into the story, but I couldn't hlep but feel the author trying to give me a more thorough understanding on how all of this works.  I enjoyed the book, but without having read and enjoyed The Watchers this book may have not made my favorites list.  Hopefully the third book in the trilogy will be more story and less explanation.  Hopefully this is merely a link between the first and the last in the trilogy, and the third will be as good as the first.  Still there is plenty going on in this book that I have to give it a five star rating, that and the fact  I felt  The Watchers was just so good.

    Disappointing - not worth reading !

    I was so looking forward to the second book assuming it would be as good as the first one. What a disappointment already after the first couple of pages! I hated the cursing the most. Then the story was dragging along with more vulgar language, so that i finally quit reading it halfway through the book.
    This did't happen for a long time to me - that I was so disappointed in the context and the language expressed.
    What happened to the author after writing the first book?
