Overview

Life in Clearwater was quiet, even a little dull for Grim, but it was better than the time he'd spent on the streets of Seattle. Then the strange girl arrived, abandoned at a roadside diner. Drugged, sick, with no memory of her past.

Grim had a bad feeling about her from the beginning but he didn't say anything when his foster mother, Clara, took her in. If anyone needed a home, it was this strange, sad girl. Clara's new Angel.

As Angel's health improves and her memory returns, the hot Clearwater summer becomes increasingly strange. Insanity creeps through the small town like a plague, spawning violence, and no one is immune. And death has arrived in the form of a shadowy figure lurking in the woods at night.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

The appearance of a young girl in the small town of Clearwater has a profound impact on Eugene Grim, when his foster mother gives her a home. Angel, as she is called, begins to regain her memories and her health-and strange events begin occurring, causing outbursts of insanity and madness among the citizens. Grim must find who is responsible for Death's arrival before Clearwater becomes a city of empty buildings. The author of Dragonfly and Feral shows his skill at small-town horror in this title suitable for large horror or dark fantasy collections.

Throughout history, knights have shared tables with kings. This Knight is no exception. I wish I had discovered Brian Knight twenty years from now because I would be able to digest one wonderful story after another instead of having to wait from one to the next. He creates characters that you will love almost from the start. His world easily becomes yours while he holds you in his trance and takes you along the roads, paths, and trails that his words create. Broken Angel is the second spell I¿ve let this writer capture me with and I can¿t wait for the next. Solid characters reacting to extraordinary circumstances leave you wishing the story would go on and on. Suspension of disbelief is not a chore when reading this book you do so willingly almost with a sense of gratitude. If you are considering ordering this book, stop considering and just order. No need to thank me for helping make up your mind. The horror genre has belonged to a King for as long as I can remember I now find comfort in the fact that, should the throne ever go empty, there is a Knight standing by to protect it, and possibly, one day, to ascend.
