Jon Steele's electrifying new novel brings together his unforgettable characters from The Watchers in an action-packed romp that easily stands alone, even as it reveals more of the earthly - and cosmic - mysteries of the Angelus trilogy.

So far this series has been a an exceptional read. The author tackles the subject of religion and our day to day existence with an eye opening story that is approching a plausible reason for the existence of humans. This series would be a wonderful big screen movie. I would easily read these books multiple times. The narrator is excellent.
Im some guy in Oshkosh, WI that walks to work and has found the joy of listening to good books and values good narrators :).
Both books in this series are long. Theres not a lot of action so theres plenty of time for character development. By the time the book is over you really feel like you know the characters. I don't normally have a problem with language in movies or books but found the heroines language to be a bit much and was used too often, Its such a part of her vocabulary that it feels like every other sentence shes swearing at someone. She talks to people in such a way to really make her hard to like. Im sure this was intended but I found that it got tedious after a while.
I like that the cat from the first book got some time as well. He has some personality but its not too much, just enough to flavor the story.
Oh and lastly!! a major annoyance!.. When I was a kid I used to watch a lot of TV. Well occasionally Id be really worried that I was going to die before the next episode because the episode that just finished ended with a big message "To Be Continued..." This book actually endes this way. So I might suggest waiting till the third book comes out so you don't have to worry about surviving for a year till the next book comes out :). The first book had an ending but was written to allow a continuation of the story.
