Overview

When the friary cat, Leo, showed up in the afterlife, Brother Jerome assumed that Leo, too, was dead. But Leo's real name is Quant, and he's a very special cat, for he's a quantum cat, and more.

A rockfall in the labyrinth at Knossos sets off a quantum leap, causing the Minotaur and Brother Jerome to switch places. The Minotaur is shocked to be catapulted from his home and dropped into a small wooden building; Jerome is terrified when he is flung out of the garden shed he had been pottering about in, and deposited in a maze of corridors. Both need help, and the quantum cat springs to the rescue, returning the Minotaur to his labyrinth and leading Jerome out of it. The Minotaur is happy to be home, but Jerome wants to explore the 'old' world he's now in. So, Quant takes him time-traveling, introducing him to his friends Androcles and the Sibyl of Cumae, pointing out to him King Minos climbing Mount Dicte to receive the laws from Zeus, and showing him St. Anthony of Egypt's astonishing journey across the desert to meet Paul the Hermit.

Meantime, back at the friary, the Guardian, Father Aidan, is in a spiritual desert. Having lost sight of the divine light, he struggles on through his dark night.

Editorial Reviews

Annette Gisby
A sequel to Jerome and the Seraph, Angelos is still a unique book all its own. What if the old gods never really left? As well as the Minotaur, we like Jerome, find ourselves transported to Ancient Greece and visit with the old gods there. Blending elements of mysticism, mythology, quantum theory and art history, it is a tale like no other. The star of the show is of course, Quant, but the Minotaur comes a close second. For this Minotaur is no monster, out to eat everyone in sight...
Jeanette Cottrell
Angelos is amusing, with bits of tongue-in-cheek humor. I chuckled over the guilty friar who'd told a lie. Well, "not really a lie, more of a chronological inexactitude." Small nuggets of philosophy are scattered throughout the story. Religious duties and viewpoints, says the cat, differ according to time, place, and cultural tradition. Human needs, however, remain much the same from one age to the next, and the "quantum" cat is determined to prove it...
Dallas Hodder Franklin
Quant, the magical cat that leaps through various worlds and dimensions is back again and in action. In Angelos, the sequel to Jerome and the Seraph, Robina Williams weaves her own storytelling magic and Quant rises to the occasion. This is a fantasy ebook and written so superbly that you become totally engrossed in the tale and forget it's fantasy...
