Angel 1089 by CC Bridges

Heaven Corp: Book One

A deal with the devil….

Gabriel 1089 is an angel—an enhanced and cybernetically modified human designed to protect the city in the sky called Heaven. He follows Heaven’s orders and fights its enemies. But when an attack by demons leaves him trapped on the earth below, missing both a metal wing and his network-enabled halo, he’s cut off from his home for good and at the mercy of one man.

Jeff Werth is used to demons in need of his mechanical expertise showing up on the doorstep of the junkyard he runs in Old Trent. However, he doesn’t expect to be stuck with an injured angel. Jeff owes the demons for saving his daughter’s life, so he does what they demand—he nurses the angel back to health and keeps close track of him as a possible pawn in the high-stakes war between Heaven above and the demons below. But he doesn’t expect the effect Gabe has on his heart, or having to choose between his daughter and the man he’s come to love.

In a war between Heaven and Hell, everyone's at risk. Gabriel 1089 is one of many angels protecting midlevel from demons. When he's attacked and ripped from the safety network of angels, Heaven Corp assumes he's dead. Yet Gabe wakes up in a new, unfamiliar place filled with outdated technology and strange people bargaining with demons. Downside is not what Gabe expected and his attraction to the man that saved his life just may be his downfall. Jeff has a secret that threatens not only his relationship with Gabe but the life of Jeff's daughter. As Gabe's memory returns, he faces an uncertain future as a pawn in either the angels or the demons battle. Angel 1089 is a thrilling urban fantasy, science fiction story. The angels vs demons battle is a familiar one but the story remains fresh and interesting. There are enough unique elements that nothing feels clichéd or tired. The plot sometimes takes some leaps in thought and plays loose with some plot details - many questions remain at the end and not all the threads are wrapped up. Yet this is offset by the complex and thorough world building. The setting is so immense and interesting that you're dropped into it immediately and happily stay there for the entire story. The author's voice and writing keep you engaged from beginning to end as the even pace and good mix of action, sex, and character development carry the story. The characters are all interesting on their own, each with back stories and subtle nuances. Jeff and Gabe connect early on but slowly build their relationship. This lets the tension build since there is a question of what will happen when true allegiances are revealed. At the same time their relationship feels almost too easy and while they're a likable enough couple, I never felt any deep passion. Instead, the host of supporting characters held my attention. Angel 1089 is the first in what promises to be a very fascinating new series. The science fiction story offers a complicated and engaging new world filled with innovation and familiar elements. The angels vs. demons mythology is well handled and should appeal to fans of that theme while bringing in urban fantasy readers. The romance is not the best part since Gabe and Jeff never quite have the same drama as the dangerous, high tech world surrounding them but I'm curious to see where the series goes from here.
